It is the beginning of a story, of island charm and tropical beauty. Of jasmine garlands, strung by a nimble hand. Of elephant treks through untouched jungle, morning dives into Andaman reefs brimming with life, and romantic candlelit dinners. It is a story you'll live out in a luxury pool villa set within the lush grounds of Anantara Phuket Resort & Spa. Since the opening in October 2008, guest response and rave reviews have confirmed Anantara's luxury Phuket resort as one of Thailand's most desirable destinations. Each of the 83 private Phuket pool villas creates a haven of peace and tranquility, whilst the restaurants, bars, and leisure facilities tantalize the taste buds and stimulate the senses. The full delights of Anantara Phuket Resort & Spa are ready for you to enjoy.
Anantara Phuket's pool villas are inspired by Thai architecture with free-flowing and expansive space, tropical woods, and windows at every turn to welcome the flow of the island breeze. The interiors invite you to unwind in the indigenously inspired luxury that has come to define Anantara, while the out-of-doors, in the surrounds of your Phuket pool villa's own walls, provide a serene place to chat, read and entertain in the open air - just as the Thais still do today. Recline on a day bed in your king or twin bedroom. Relax the afternoon away on sunbeds on your hardwood deck and plunge into your private pool in blissful seclusion. Connect your iPod to the villa surround-sound stereo and select a bottle from your personal wine cellar.
Just outside the privacy of your Phuket pool villa, some of the island's best culinary wonders are yours to discover. Kick back at the beachfront restaurant, feast on grilled seafood, taste homemade pastas and Italian sauces as good - and possibly even better - than any found on the Mediterranean, but with a twist that is pure tropical delight. Anantara brings you some of the very best of Phuket dining, tucked playfully throughout the corners of the natural enclave. Let your culinary imagination run wild with Anantara's own Dining by Design concept, where you pick the location, and the chef transforms a meal into a memorable occasion.
