Dramatically set on a headland on Phuket's west coast, Amanpuri is a luxurious boutique hotel nestled in a shady coconut plantation, overlooking the dazzling turquoise waters of the Andaman Sea with a white sandy beach.
Aman's flagship property
Stunning private white sandy beach and crystal clear water
Discreet and impeccable Aman service
40 pavilions and 40 villas
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 splendour of its peaceful surroundings.
Amanpuri offers beautifully decorated 40 Thai-style pavilions, and 40 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, Eco-Beach Club with some incredible experiences for children and teenagers, grass and hard tennis courts and a private fleet of 20 cruisers and sailing boats for diving, excursions and romantic dinners at sea. Several bars and restaurants in beautiful settings and serving an array of the finest cuisine from across the globe are dotted around the resort. Amanpuri also features a Holistic Wellness Centre, which includes a medical clinic and transformative multi-day Medical Wellness Immersion programmes.
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.
