Description

Amanpuri is well established as it was the Aman Group's first ever hotel and is now a flagship property offering a blueprint for their many idyllic hotels across the world. It has an unrivalled reputation as a luxury resort where personal service, recreational facilities and fine cuisine complement the unique splendour of its peaceful surroundings.

Amanpuri offers beautifully decorated Thai-style pavilions and private pool villas for larger families and groups. Graceful in design, the elegant buildings of the resort are connected by elevated walkways which lead to the stunning crescent shaped beach and the very first Aman Spa where a range of healing therapies and traditional treatments relax and rejuvenate.

The hotel also boasts a great beach club, grass and hard tennis courts and a private fleet of 20 cruisers and sailing boats for diving, excursions and romantic dinner cruises. Several bars and restaurants in beautiful settings and serving an array of the finest cuisine from across the globe are dotted around the resort. With so many changes to Phuket since its opening in 1988, Amanpuri has stood the test of time and in comparison, many of the newer resorts pale into insignificance.

Luxury Villa Homes

Amanpuri’s 30 villas are set apart from the main resort and occupy a private headland that affords breathtaking views. Most of them with ocean-front settings, these villas provide an intimate alternative to the main pavilions at the resort. Private yet easily accessible to the resort’s facilities and services, these self-contained villas are also an ideal venue for weddings, meetings and family gatherings.

All villas feature unique décor and layout with private dark-tile pools ranging in length from 8-20m. Typically, the pool and courtyard form the centerpiece around which the bedroom pavilions, the dining and living salas and the kitchen areas are arrayed. The arrangement is spacious and airy.

Each villa comes with two to six separate bedroom pavilions, as well as open-air living and dining salas. The interiors are finished with carefully selected Thai furnishings, art and antiques. The design focus is on individualism and the living space is generous – up to 115 m2, with 50 m2 bedrooms and a 65 m2 dining pavilion with sundeck.

A live-in maid and cook attend to all guests’ needs, including the preparation of Thai cuisine in the private kitchen.
