Hotel at a glance
Stone-clad and curled around an oval lagoon, your five-star resort stays its firm grasp on a quiet slice of Mai Khao Beach, famed for its pure sands and briny kisses courtesy of its Andaman consort. Sigh over its beauty from your rooms, then tear your gaze away for other holiday exploits, beginning with a long soak in the outdoor beach pool to churn away flight hangovers. Fussy littles are placated with the array of activities and games planned for them at Hotelsresorts.com/Kidsclub/">Kids Club, leaving you to book a tour of the area that threads past the serene Big Buddha, its smaller brethren at Wat Chalong, or Karon View Point’s soaring sights, before finally heeding the siren song of the ocean and returning home.
Taking its host duties to a higher level, the Hotel one-ups standard pools with its Splash Jungle Water Park that transports you to seven different wonders around the world. Brush by the ancient Incans or comb through the scenery of Turkey as the current sweeps you along the 335m Lazy River. Excitement increases when tides turn at the gigantic six-level wave pool, as you finally work up the nerve to tackle the aquatic rollercoaster that is the Boomerango.
Sink into the welcoming embrace of spacenvaree.com/">spa Cenvaree, where treatments are aligned with a belief that the body, mind, and soul can be balanced to invigorate one’s life force . Thumb through the ample menu for the traditional Thai therapy of your choice, then surrender to the capable hands of the staff who come fully primed with anatomy training, hours of massage practice, and professional certs from the Ministry of Labour.
Let meal-time indecisiveness triumph for once, revelling in the six restaurants and bars that line the corridors of this beachside dwelling. Sample the Italian offerings of Azzurro, local delicacies within Suan Bua, or just settle down for the night with a few signature cocktails at the Sunset Breeze Restaurant & Bar.

Phuket, Thailand: What to see and do
Phuket has a diverse landscape made up of mountains in the central region that tapers off into plains, becoming white sandy beaches and jagged limestone outcrops towards the coast. While most people spend their time here lazing by the beach and exploring neighbouring islands via longtail boats, the island has a host of cultural and natural attractions waiting to be discovered. Immerse yourself in nature at the Khao Phra Thaeo National Park, a sanctuary that preserves the native flora and fauna of the region where you can trek through the tropical rainforest to the scenic Tonsai and Bang Pae waterfalls. You can also soak in the sights at Turtle Village, Blue Canyon golf Club, Sarasin Bridge, Sirinat National Park, and Yacht Heaven Phuket Marina.
Scattered around Phuket are Buddhist temples that form the spiritual core of the island, the most iconic one being the Big Buddha, a sitting Buddha made up of white Burmese marble located at the peak of the Nakkerd Hills, which is also a good vantage point to get a 360-degree view of the surroundings. If you time your visit to coincide with the Vegetarian Festival that takes place in late September to early October, you will get the chance to see how locals celebrate their version of the Nine Emperor Gods Festival with colourful processions and ceremonies that challenge physical limits like firewalking and body piercing.
