Why we like it
- First and most famous Aman Resort situated on Phuket's west coast
- 40 Thai-style pavilions with private sala and sunken bath tubs
- Reknowned Aman Spa, with six spacious treatment pavilions set in a peaceful coconut grove
With sculptured roof-lines under tropical skies, Amanpuri is a tranquil oasis located in a secluded natural coconut grove just above a soft, crescent shaped beach. Elevated walkways weave through statuesque palms to reach a cool reception area and a large slate-blue pool.
Stone steps sweep down to the beach and the mesmerising Andaman Sea, where the gentle fragrance of the frangipani flower delicately scents the sea air. If you are looking for total escape, take a stroll to The Spa, a holistic sanctuary shaded by whispering coconut palms. Pamper yourself with an impossibly soothing body wrap treatment. For an unusual dining experience, head for the Nama restaurant, where authentic Washoku fare blends the finest French techniques with the artistry of Japanese cuisine. Round off the day in style, sitting on the terrace to watch the sunset over the darkening Andaman Sea.
Understated luxury is the theme, with locally inspired, beautifully furnished interiors, complemented by outside salas or private dining decks. Choose from Garden Pavilions interspersed among the trees and Ocean Pavilions with spectacular views. If you are looking for exclusive, spacious family accommodation, we recommend the resort's Residences. Forty of these are decorated with Thai furnishings, art and antiques. With a garden or ocean view, a private pool and hidden amongst the coconut palms each with between two and nine bedrooms Thai salas, a live-in maid and cook they are the setting for a perfect holiday experience.
