Expert Review

Built in 1987, Amanpuri is the flagship property of Amanresorts, a brand synonymous with opulence, exclusivity, and seclusion. While many areas of Phuket have descended into a more remote version of Atlantic City, Amanpuri remains the definition of luxury in Southeast Asia. The price tag may be sky high, but the amenities and service make it worth the indulgence. Amanpuri’s 40 pavilions each boast a king-sized bed, large bathrooms with separate dressing areas (along with the standard bearer of luxury in Asia – a Toto washlet), and views of either the Andaman Sea or the property’s lush gardens. Guests can choose among four dining options, including a restaurant on the beach (open in high season only). If it’s available, make sure to splurge and try the dinner beachside barbecue (offered only between November and April). For recreation, head to the resort’s pool, a semi- private beach, glass-walled gym, spa, and tennis courts, or relax at the library and gallery. You can also book excursions on their fleet of cruise ships. The signature of this luxury resort, though, is its superb staff, which is attentive and genuinely cares about making each guest’s experience superb.
