This tropical retreat near Nai Yang Beach puts all the things you come to Phuket for — sand! sea! water sports! nightlife! — at your fingertips. Classic Sino-Portuguese architecture, seclusion fit for honeymooners and a spot by the beach — these are the hallmarks of Phuket’s brand of paradise, and with the Dewa as your base, you can tap into it all. Set on palm tree–studded grounds, the villas and suites wrap around a free-form lagoon pool, and breezy open-air lounges dot the resort.
Bed and Bath
Each of the Dewa’s 34 villas is decked out with a four-poster bed stacked high with multicolored pillows, a fully stocked bar, a flat-screen TV and plenty of thoughtful extras, such as white terrycloth robes and an overflowing plate of local fruit. But you may find yourself spending most of your time outdoors: All villas come with a private plunge pool, an open-air rain shower and a deep freestanding bathtub. For those looking for extra space, the Family Suites sleep up to six and have fully equipped kitchens and balconies. The resort has 96 units (Suites and Villas) in all.
Sunbathers have a tough decision to make: to lounge poolside or beachside. The allure of Nai Yang Beach’s powdery soft sand at low tide is hard to beat, but the crystal-clear water of the snaking pool will also tempt you (there’s a traditional lap pool, too). Beyond helping you get some sun, the resort can also direct you to the kiteboarding school down the beach, or you can book an invigorating white tea salt scrub in the spa. When the sun sets, head to the Terrace Grill for a hearty steak — the best way to fuel up for an evening of beach bar–hopping.
In the Area
Looking for an adrenaline rush? Phuket is renowned for world class kiteboarding. Sign up at one of the island’s best schools, Kiteboarding Asia, to experience this mashup of surfing, paragliding and gymnastics. The island’s famous Blue Canyon Country Club is about a 20-minute drive from the resort. As the staff will proudly tell you, Tiger Woods once said the course was one of the best he’d ever played on — and with that stamp of approval, you’re sure to have an enjoyable day on the green. The Dewa offers a ton of organized activities scheduled daily, with opportunities to take aqua aerobics, yoga, Thai boxing and more. The kids are also covered, with a long list of fun activities, such as face painting, pizzamaking and drawing.
How to Get There
We absolutely loved our one night stay in a private villa pool room. Our accommodation was luxurious, comfortable bed, outdoor bathroom was sublime all looking out over our private pool. The resort facilities were excellent. Dinner on arrival was delicious. Full buffet breakfast delivered a large variety of fresh food. We both had massages before our departure which were so relaxing in a very comfortable room. Staff were friendly and helpful. We organised a pick up at the airport, highly recommend.
If you are requiring accommodation near the airport I highly recommend this property. It ticks all the boxes.
First of all the staff are amazing! They know exactly what they are doing you can tell customer satisfaction is their No. 1 aim! Nothing was too much trouble for any of them. The surroundings are fantastic beautiful tropical gardens with the sound of bird song all day! Totally charming!
The pools are lovely very refreshing! There are 2 medium sized one aimed at families the other near the beach which would in my opinion lend itself as an adult only pool.
The villas i feel are a little dated but this is only an observation and I was perfectly at home there. Air con works efficiently and almost silently. No nasty smells.
All in all a lovely stay and I would go back in a heartbeat. With grateful thanks to all at the Dewa!!
We stayed in a 2 bedroom family apartment. Extremely spacious and comfortable, gorgeous garden setting with a boutique feel. Across the road from the beach and 5 minutes from the airport. Free bikes, paddle boards and Kyacks a bonus.
The breakfast was absolutely five star, extremely boutique with attention to detail, loved the antipasto extras... salmon with capers etc.. special mention must be made for the quality of the food. I highly recommend this Resort.
We stayed here as part of our honeymoon. The hotel has some really amazing villas with their own pool. We stayed in a suite which was very spacious and reasonably priced. The hotel was very quiet when we were there and sometimes we were the only ones by the pool. The staff were not very attentive given that they could not have been that busy! You had to seek them out if you wanted to order anything.
The location is great if you want a chilled and peaceful holiday. A few minutes up the road is the little village with a few tourist shops, Thai massage places and restaurants.
The beach is steps away and you can hear it from the poolside. It does have some rubbish on it, but that is pretty standard anywhere these days given the way we treat our planet. But sitting watching the sunset with a glass of beer was great.
You don’t notice the planes and if you are only in Phuket for a few days, this is a convenient base.
I wouldn't say it lives up to its 5 star claim, more like a 4. Nice clean rooms, the junior suite was a nice little one bedroom apartment if you are looking for somewhere you can prepare your own meals. Not much at Nai Yang Beach, very polluted beach but the sunset is amazing and the local beach bars were nice.
Not somewhere I would stay for more than a day or two but for an airport stay it's ok.
