Most luxury hotels in Phuket have all the bells and whistles of the five-star accommodation club, as well as plenty of flash. For those looking for tasteful and slightly subtler yet equally luxurious living, check out the Twinpalms Phuket Resort. Located on Surin Beach (on the west coast of the island), the Twinpalms Resort provides a necessary respite from the bustle of Phuket Town and flash and crowd of tourists at Patong Beach.
The hotel itself is small – to keep with its tranquil ambience, it only provides 97 rooms, each equipped with its own oversized bathroom, free wireless Internet access and satellite television. Rooms are designed to fit the customer’s preference; they can be decorated according Eastern or Western preference.
The Resort has its very own library where you can enjoy a quiet moment with a book. There is a small collection of art there as well when you need a break from reading. There are private lagoon pools for every 15 rooms, another measure to ensure the privacy of the hotel’s guests, as well as lap pools for those
looking to get a spot of exercise in. Guests can also enjoy the hotel’s water sport activities at the Catch Beach Club. Afterwards, the Oriental Spoon Restaurant and Oyster Bar offers elegant dining with the freshest seafood from Phuket’s coasts.
Away from the main resort area, guests also have the option of getting away in the Twinpalms residences. The Rooftop Pool Suites have ten residences, each with their own private pool. These suites are located in duplex apartment style housing, with the living and dining areas on the first floor, and pools on the roof. The Garden Pool Suite offers ten residences as well, with the option of having one or two bedrooms in your suite. The pool and living and dining areas are on the first floor and the master bedroom (and optional second room) on the second. The Residence guests also have access to a communal Residence lounge, where one can enjoy drinks and snacks in a shared environment.
For the ultimate sumptuous experience, there are two bedrooms offered in the penthouse suite. There is a private pool, full terrace, kitchen, living areas, and en-suite bathroom in each bedroom. As an added bonus, you can have your own cigar humidor and private wine cellar, and of course your very own television and movie entertainment theatre.
