As a seasoned travel professional, I’ve been sending clients to Phuket for years, many of them to Trisara, classed as one of the best hotels on the island since it opened over a decade ago.
Its location, on 40 acres of private coastline in the north-west, is lovely as it’s a bit less developed. Furthermore, the area has the best beaches on the island and incredible views of the Andaman Sea. Many of the west coast hotels, including Trisara, are built on hillsides overlooking these stunning shores.
Home to 39 pool villas and 30 privately owned residences with two to seven bedrooms, many of which are available to rent, a stay at Trisara will leave you wanting more. The service is faultlessly Asian and the facilities are top-notch. Plus, it is only 15 minutes from the airport, which is nice after a long flight.
Vibrant and lively touches everywhere make the resort visually stunning. There are ponds and little pools all around, filled to the brim with water lilies. Large vases with exotic flowers such as birds of paradise and lotus are placed here and there, and enormous bowls of brightly coloured petals are displayed everywhere you look.
Pool Villas have either open-plan layouts or separate bedroom and living rooms, allowing parents with children to stay in one accommodation. They all offer pools of varying sizes and large sundecks (with views) to while away the hours. The interiors have many creature comforts such as marble bathrooms with large, sunken bathtubs and beds with fluffy pillows and dreamy mattress-toppers. Little touches like daily offerings of cookies and chocolates are welcome. I like it when a hotel gives you homely little somethings for nothing – even if they really are calculated into your rate.
Although family-friendly, this is not a great kids’ destination, especially for those youngsters who need serious entertaining. But for us adults seeking the ultimate, relaxing vacation, this is an ideal place to drop off the grid for a spell.
