These coveted hotel villas come with airy bedrooms, lush rainforest settings, and personal plunge pools so inviting you might never leave.

Banyan Tree Phuket

This 136-key resort was modeled after a traditional Thai village, with low-rise bungalows built up around a landscaped garden, a saltwater lagoon, and the sands of Bang Tao Bay. The hotel’s many room categories are all pretty stellar, but the double pool villas win our vote—think his-and-hers dressing rooms, open-air bathtubs, and natural design details like teak window frames, stone sculptures, wooden chandeliers, and wicker loungers arranged around a combination infinity pool and hot tub. Bonus: there’s 24-hour butler service and in-room chef services so you to can live like a recluse in the most luxurious way possible.

Sri Panwa

You’ll find the best ocean views in all of Thailand at Sri Panwa, whose 60 villas are set on a cliff high above the Andaman Sea. The rooms are divided between suites, villas, and residences, but the pool villas are the best and come with double vanities, private patios, and infinity-edge pools that blend seamlessly into the distant sea and sky. While the sunken living room lobby is a cozy place to hang out, the real scene revolves around Baba Nest, Sri Panwa’s rooftop bar, where both guests and locals come to snack on small seafood plates and sip fruity cocktails alongside 360-degree sunset views.

One night in one of Andara’s luxury villas and you’ll want to move in for the long haul. All 63 modern villas and suites sit on a hill overlooking Kamala Beach, known as Millionaires’ Mile (which might explain the level of luxury). Every room grants access to private chefs, the hotel’s pair of yachts, and stunning vistas, but it’s the Pool Villas that guarantee views of the Andaman Sea—not to mention indoor-outdoor showers and private pool terraces where you can lounge alfresco. If you decide you want to schmooze (or simply see another blissed-out face), the full-service spa, central infinity pool, and Silk restaurant are the perfect places to do so.

No matter which of the 39 pool villas you check into at Trisara, you’ll get a whopping 2,600 square feet of gorgeous interior surrounded by 40 acres of bamboo and banana trees. Every space, from the bedroom to the sunken bath to the infinity pool, has standout views of the Andaman Sea, but don’t get too comfortable. You’ll want to check out the onsite holistic spa, tennis and water sports, top-notch restaurants and gorgeous golden beach lined with cushy daybeds.

Thanks to its location on a rain-forested peninsula far removed from Phuket’s more populated beach towns, the Amanpuri draws its fair share of celebs (Beyoncé and Brad Pitt have both been spotted here). A hilly former coconut plantation dotted with Thai-style pavilions, sets the stage for serious romance—we’re talking 40 standalone villas connected by elevated walkways, a massive black-tiled pool, and a stone staircase that leads down to a private beach (which, unless you are a hotel guest, is accessible only by boat). Between meals at Aman’s four restaurants, make time for a natural treatment at the spa, whose teakwood pavilions include a traditional sala for yoga and guided meditation.

Anantara Mai Khao Phuket

Phuket’s longest beach on the island’s secluded northwest coast is the backdrop for this all-villa resort. The 83 rooms are over-the-top beautiful, with walls covered in bougainvillea and high-ceilinged interiors featuring canopied beds with mosquito nets, dark wood furniture, and French doors that open out onto decks and plunge pools. You could spend all day alternating between swimming and sunbathing, but if you’ve got energy to burn there are loads of diversions (tai chi, batik painting, canoeing) to fit in between all that relaxation.

Six Senses Yao Noi

You might say the Six Senses Group has a monopoly on the luxury hotel scene in the Far East (they oversee no less than six star properties on the Asian continent). Their outpost on Yao Noi, an island just off Phuket, is among the most idyllic. The 54 thatch-roof villas are all serviced by 24-hour butlers and come with private sun decks and infinity pools, while ocean view villas look out towards a row of limestone pinnacles that rise up out of turquoise Phang Nga Bay. Bonus: Guests can rent kayaks and boats, and bicycles are available for cruising around nearby villages.

Villa Zolitude Resort & Spa

This all-villa retreat trades a beachfront zip code for one in the heart of Phuket’s jungle, but its views of the lowlands are as spectacular as any ocean setting. Privacy is paramount here: the crafted wood and stone villas have private pools—some with open-air bathrooms—and are set on stilts in the treetops. You won’t find as many perks here as other five-star properties in Phuket—besides a lack of beach, the communal pool is smaller than most and there’s no gym—but the on-site spa shines thanks to its Japanese onsen and luxurious treatment rooms.
