Secluded emerald lagoons. Pool villa sunsets. Unforgettable Thai smiles.

It is the beginning of a story, of island charm and tropical beauty. Of jasmine garlands, strung by a nimble hand. Of morning dives into Andaman reefs brimming with life, and afternoons spent lounging on the deck of a private pool. Of yet another candlelit dinner shared together in paradise.

It is a story you'll live out at Anantara Phuket.

Anantara Phuket Resort and Spa is designed to be the setting for a story you'll tell forever. Located on a quiet stretch of Mai Khao Beach in Phuket's more secluded and natural northern sunset coast, Anantara's luxurious pool villas and gardens unfold over the rugged coastal landscape. The Bill Bensley-designed grounds delicately fuse the colorful tropical flora with age-old traditions of Thai architecture, providing an environment that is at once serene and yet alive with vibrant culture.

Anantara invites you to explore a more authentic side to Phuket's natural, historic and cultural beauty. Ignite new passions, trekking through verdant forests or taking your first breaths underwater amidst untouched coral reefs. Experience the charm of Southern Thailand at Anantara Phuket.

Set between the sands of sun-blessed beaches and the rolling green backdrop of verdant hills, Anantara Phuket Resort & Spa is only a 15-minute drive from Phuket's International Airport. Based on the island's more secluded northwest coast, your private pool villa is your gateway to excursions through the lush tropical mangroves of nearby Sirinath National Park, dives into stunning coral reefs, and strolls through charming local villages.

Just steps away from the emerald waters of the Andaman Sea, Anantara Phuket's 82 one-bedroom pool villas and 1 two bedroom pool villas are nestled within indigenous gardens. Designed to recall a quaint Southern Thai-style village, the locally inspired architecture complements its natural setting, with open-air spaces and arched ceilings to take advantage of the cool sea breeze. The interiors embrace contemporary Thai design, using evocative local prints, textiles, paintings and relaxed lounge spaces

Start your morning with hearty breakfasts at our all-day dining restaurant, La Sala. Chat over lemongrass and ginger-infused cocktails at the pool bar : Infinity. As the sun sets over the Andaman Sea, feasting on European | Asian fusion cuisine at restaurant before moving on to admire the views from the Tree House bar. Or, head downstairs for a tasting of Old and New World vintages in our impeccably stocked wine cellar, in The Tasting Room.

Take home unforgettable stories from this inspired landscape. Charter a luxury yacht for an indulgent cruise through the mysterious karsts of Phang Nga Bay. Explore the viewpoints and waterfalls of the island's unseen hinterlands as you chat about local culture and the island's rich history with our local guides. Natural wonders and unique cultural experiences lie at every turn during this - your most memorable - Phuket vacation.
