Indigo Pearl’s unusual industrial-chic aesthetic is a design nod to Phuket’s history as a center of tin mining and the raw beauty of the island’s early days. The rooms and public spaces are filled with rough timber and sleek polished metal with steampunk details. Many of the villas have private pools, and there’s one for the resort guests to share, as well as an extensive spa. The restaurants are architectural marvels that seem to be floating on a lagoon: Rivet and Rebar is a modern grill serving Black Angus beef and local fish; Tin Mine serves Thai street food like deep-fried soft-shell crab; and the Tongkah Tin Syndicate is a snooker hall and bar.
In the Area
Located on the lush north coast of Phuket, the Indigo Pearl is near Blue Canyon Country Club, deemed by Tiger Woods to be one of the best golf courses he’s ever played on, and Phang Nga Bay, known for its stunning limestone cliffs and caves. 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 nearby Splash Jungle Water Park is said to be Thailand’s wettest, wildest water park.
How to Get There
Great location (5min from the airport, hotel provides pick up service, next to the beach), excellent variety of restaurants within the hotel (Japanese, Thai, European), nice and modern rooms. In general great value for money. Recommend this hotel for long-weekend couple holiday.

The hotel facilities and our room exceeded our expectations - and they were high.
We had a marvellous stay in a big room with a patio with sunbeds, chairs and an outdoor bathtub.
It is truly a five star hotel in every way.
I am a picky person and I have no remarks - at all.
Fab breakfast with a wide assortment of local cuisine as well as waffles, pancakes and everything else.
Pools are great with 2 out of 3 only for adults. No screamy kids :)
If you want a laid back holiday in a modern designed environment, this is the place to be.
