Phulay Bay a Ritz Carlton Reserve

Phulay Bay a Ritz Carlton Reserve

Venture to a captivating corner of the world, where glistening sands and blue skies converge with the Andaman Sea, and where the charm and natural beauty of Thailand blends with an aura of serenity and discovery. The resort is the vision and work of in-demand Thai architect Lek Bunnag. It is an awe-inspiring combination of modern styling and architecture; grand and oversized in scale with distinctive accents from Thai and Middle Eastern, and Moroccan cultures. Bunnag takes inspiration from beautiful things worldwide to create an environment where the senses are continuously triggered and enlivened from the moment guests enter the resort driveway to the moment they leave.

Luxury villas in Thailand conveniently located 35 minutes from Krabi International Airport and one hour by speed boat transfer or two hours by car from Phuket International Airport. As the world’s first Ritz-Carlton Reserve, Phulay Bay embodies the attributes, philosophy, and unique style and design of the Reserve brand extension. It has been designed for those who seek to escape the stresses of everyday life and immerse themselves in a completely bespoke and personally-tailored-to-suit vacation experience. Set on the Andaman Sea's shores, Phulay Bay is a striking 54-villa and pavilion boutique hotel offering unspoiled views of the naturally rugged shoreline and dramatic limestone karsts which make up this beautiful part of southern Thailand.

An infinity pool bar will offer soft loungers and silk pillows by day with lighter, more relaxed culinary offerings. In contrast, the resort’s sunset lounge will offer day beds, oversized pillows, chill-out lounge bar music, and candle lanterns for a truly intimate and relaxing feel. The perfect place for a glass of champagne or a stylish martini as the sun sets over the seemingly endless horizon. RAW spa café prepares fresh, uncooked, and unaltered vegan products and has a green hydroponic bar growing the resort’s own wheatgrass and lettuce.

An exhilarating sense of arrival will immediately let guests know they are somewhere special: 20ft high aubergine walls and ‘hedges’ made from indigenous trees create a sense of wonder from the outside and a great sense of peace and stillness once on the inside. Guests enter the resort through the high walls and walk over a stepping-stone pathway that leads them to a magnificent pitched-roof Thai pavilion situated on an island surrounded by thousands of gently flickering candles. From here on in, guests subtly and gently have their senses enriched and stimulated with the resort’s own scent, signature drink, the stunning scenery from inside the accommodation, and throughout the resort, to tactile 100% Thai silk soft furnishings used in the villas and restaurants.

With a tantalizing selection of casual and formal dining options and experiences as pleasing to the eye as to the palate, Phulay Bay presents a culinary voyage inspired by the flavors of the world. Each restaurant features dishes made from only the finest ingredients, sourced from local markets each morning, then served with flawless Thai hospitality in settings that reflect Thailand's unique culture and architecture.

The Spice Concierge is a new service offering a unique level of education and guest experiences with Thailand’s most celebrated and sought-after spices through one-of-a-kind tastings, cocktails, and spa treatments. Thai spices, such as lemongrass, kaffir lime, and galangal, renowned for giving Thai food its defining, ‘cravable’ flavor, will become even more accessible to Phulay Bay guests, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve.
