Luxe all-villa retreat on a jungle-clad hillside in southwest Phuket with dramatic views of the Andaman Sea
On a jungle-clad hillside in southwest Phuket, the Pavilions is a 49-villa retreat made for honeymooners and romance-seeking couples. All of the Asian-inspired pool villas overlook Bang Tao and Layan beaches and have pools big enough to actually swim in with roomy decks for sun and shade. The bar, 360˚, attracts the island’s best-dressed inhabitants, who flock at sundown for the calm view, then stay sipping colorful cocktails late into the warm night. And the staff lives up to the hotel’s motto, “No tan lines, no interruptions,” delivering service without a sound.
Bed and Bath
Roomy hillside villas feel like private tropical homes thanks to high, pitched ceilings, woven organic fiber furnishings, indigenous fabrics and collectible arts and local crafts. For guests who prefer not to leave their rooms, the kitchens allow in-room dining preparations and the bar is refilled daily with decadent sweet treats, drinks and plenty of fresh tropical fruit. French doors with floor-to-ceiling windows frame tropical scenes and make it easy to slip straight out of bed and into the private swimming pool.
For active types, the hotel provides a range of daytime activities, including snorkeling, scuba diving, golf and elephant treks. For beach time there’s a shuttle that makes the five-minute trip down to the sandy beach throughout the day. For many guests, however, there is little need to leave the villas’ comfortable confines; even the pampering spa treatments are done on the private, shaded verandas. Breakfast is a mix of tropical fruit, freshly baked bread and banana pancakes (well worth indulging), and for dinner, guests gravitate to the Plantation Club, an open-air eatery with gourmet western fare and Phuket’s finest dessert soufflés. The resort’s most popular spot, however, is 360˚, a sleek hilltop bar with unbroken ocean views. The island’s best-dressed crowd flocks here each evening for a colorful cocktail and the spectacular sunset display.
