Bask in the sands and experience luxurious high-end living in Phuket
The stunning tropical setting of Phuket is just a 12-hour flight from the UK, so you’ll be soaking up that Thai sunshine in no time.
Phuket is known for having some of the most sublime beaches in Thailand. They are quiet and secluded, with pristine white sand and the gorgeous backdrop of the Andaman Sea. You can also enjoy this fantastic setting without any noisy neighbours or busy loud beach clubs as many of the coastlines are private and reserved for resort guests.
For some VIP treatment, several 5* hotels are situated around Phuket and the shores. These star-studded resorts all feature the gorgeous tropical temperatures of Thailand, with palm trees and rainforest circling your accommodation.
Living the high life in Phuket
For a little rest and relaxation make sure to visit Naithon Beach. This little gem is composed of a small bay with fine dining restaurants and quaint boutiques lining the strip. It’s also where you’ll find some high-end, luxury hotels, all looking out towards the white sand beach.
Tri Trang is another fantastic holiday spot focused around the beach. Its extremely secluded sands are often only used by the resorts that inhabit the area. With no overhanging trees, Tri Trang beach is ideal for sunbathers. You can also enjoy a little pampering in the spa huts that dot the shoreline or rent jet skis and take to the water.
Phuket Town is Phuket’s largest city with plenty of boutique restaurants and places to explore. Several spas, a luxury golf course with stunning landscape views and a yachting company where you can charter yachts and catamarans for the day will also have you indulging during your stay.
