Nestling in and surrounded by acres of lush and beautifully landscaped gardens and parkland, looking out over the clear blue waters of the Andaman Sea, Evason Phuket is everything you’ve ever imagined that a tropical Phuket resort should be. With its location on a hill the views are spectacular from almost any spot in the resort.
The amenities offered at this lavish resort are almost overwhelming, with three large ‘company-size’ pools and another twenty-eight that come complete with their own private suite. You will hardly miss having your own pool if you choose another of the gorgeously appointed rooms, as they are all completely luxurious. Each has its own balcony and most have a view of the sea. They also boast open-style bathrooms that add an extra dimension of space and light.
Adding to the overall atmosphere of tranquillity and seclusion, the staff at Evason Phuket is dedicated to providing the finest service to be found anywhere. Guests are pampered with 24-hour room service, but you’ll want to visit all of the on-site restaurants to sample the delicious food and take in the stunning views. Of course there is a choice of exquisite Thai dishes, but you can also dine on the best of Mediterranean cuisine or your favourite Western fare, and the very freshest fruit and seafood are always on the menu.
You may never want to leave the premises, but do take a complimentary 15-minute boat ride to Bon Island, which is actually part of the Evason Phuket resort. This little gem has its own restaurant and bar, plus all the activity you may want: windsurfing, Hobie Cat sailing, out-of-this-world snorkelling, and showers and sun-beds if you should tire.
You can’t stay overnight though. That privilege is for residents of the Honeymoon Suite only; everyone else has to leave at 5:00 p.m.
Another noteworthy aspect of the Evason Phuket is its status as the only resort in Thailand to be Green Globe Certified. The management is serious about sustainability and the environment, with solar panels and a self-sufficient water supply being only a suggestion of their commitment. Add to this the delights of the Six Senses Spa, which offers the ultimate in both ancient and modern treatments to sooth and rejuvenate mind and body, and you have an experience to remember and cherish until you can go back again.
