Our favorite Phuket hotel
We’re often asked about which Phuket hotels we recommend. It’s never an easy question to answer. The range of hotels in Phuket is vast. It really comes down to two things: budget and location. However, if money were no option and we had our pick of the Phuket hotels and resorts available, there’s one place we would go for every time: Indigo Pearl resort in Nai Yang.
Apart from being a resort located by the beach, which is always a bonus, Indigo Pearl is really special. In most hotels, no matter how many stars they may have, you can never quite relax completely because you’re always aware that you’re in a hotel room. Staying at Indigo Pearl is such an engrossing experience that you really forget where you are altogether.
The food is top notch and there’s a cute little cocktail bar, but it’s the design and décor of the resort that does it for us. The whole place is modeled on Phuket’s tin-mining history. There is so much attention to detail – from the cutlery to the showerheads. Of course, it’ll cost you a pretty penny to stay at this Phuket resort, but for a bit of a splurge, it can’t be beaten.
