On Phuket’s northwest shore near famed Phang Nga Bay, SALA Phuket combines unique architecture with modern luxury hotel facilities like 32-inch LCD TVs and home entertainment systems. The bathrooms in the 79 suites and villas—no regular rooms here—are open air, with outdoor showers and bathtubs. Speaking of soaking, the spa is a contemporary temple to wellness that offers both traditional Thai rituals and skin care treatments using Clarins products from France. As befits a resort that exudes romance, meals can be had at the striking restaurants or in villas or a choice of secluded locations around the property.
In the Area
Located on pristine Mai Khao beach, the hotel is just 20 minutes from the international airport and near Blue Canyon Country Club, which has what Tiger Woods deems to be one of the best golf courses he’s ever played on. Sirinat National Park is also nearby, and is one of the island’s largest and most unspoiled nature areas. For those who prefer their aquatic adventures to be more controlled, Splash Jungle Water Park is said to be Thailand’s wettest, wildest water park.
How to Get There
Excellent retreat away from the crowds. Stunning room with added bonus of fantastic facilities. Highly recommend a visit. The grounds of the hotel are perfect and the Spa was also a fantastic visit. Hope to come back soon
Incredible resort for relaxation, peace and quiet. Had never stayed in a room like this anywhere in the world. Private pool, all bathroom facilities are outside, with a lot of privacy. All the architecture of the hotel is very modern with beautiful landscaping. The breakfast is included and there are a lot of options from the menu in addition to the cereals and fruits from the buffet. The beach is perfect for long walks but not for swimming. If you stay here, plan to relax at the hotel. The taxi ride to Phuket Town or Patong beach is about 50 minutes each way. However, the airport is pretty close. Staff is very attentive
First time to visit and will definitely return.
The garden villa was excellent, spacious and perfect for a kind of second honeymoon. Lovely private pool and outdoor area.
Staff in all the restaurants and spa were friendly and always smiling. Dining choices were good and the breakfast had lots of variety on their a la carte menu.
It was low season, therefore quiet. At times, this gave the bars and restaurants a bit of a lack of atmosphere but you can’t fault the hotel for that. Just like u can’t fault the hotel for the sea being too rough to swim in during our 4 days.
High quality of food and drink and reasonable pricing considering location and quality. Wine is expensive, but again, that is a Thailand issue due to import tax etc.
Can’t wait to come back in future.
