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.
How to Get There
My husband and I spent a week at The Pavilions Phuket in March and cannot fault any aspect of the resort. The staff were among the most attentive of any we have experienced in the world and the service impeccable. We will definitely be back.
My partner and I have just arrived home after our visit and believe me when I say we have said about 20 times “I miss the pavilions”.
This place was absolutely un believeable, from the beauty of the resort, the food/drinks and the above and beyond service it was just brilliant.
I cannot recomment this place enough and we are truely grateful for our experience!!!
The accommodation was OK but it was let down by the food and drinks, seriously our dog get better meat to eat, It is a long way from the main attraction, Patong beach, 20 kilometers, expensive taxi fare. very steep terrain to walk, you need to be fit and able, lots of steps to get to the Firefly restaurant, the 360 bar was good to watch the sunset
amazing.Been to a few before but this one is up there with best
No need to venture out of the resort as they had everything needed
The 360 degree bar on the top of the hill worth a visit every night to watch the amazing sunsets and enjoy the ambience with a few cocktails and wines
Booking essential to get a front row table
