Anantara Phuket Villas

Exclusive luxury resort with private pools for each villa

Featuring 83 villas spread around a lagoon, the Anantara Phuket Villas Resort is one of the premier 5-star properties in Phuket. Each villa is easily large enough for four people, and there is a Kids Club on site, but it’s most popular with couples in Thailand to relax and appreciate the quiet setting and the lovely beach.

The location along the northern coast of Phuket in Mai Khao means that it’s a very short ride from the airport, but still with all the solitude you could hope for. There are excellent restaurants and a world-class spa on site, and many excursions to nearby sites available for the adventurous. For people interested in large villas and private pools with immaculate service, the Anantara Phuket Villas is an ideal choice.

What the reviews say

Reviews for the Anantara Phuket Villas are generally excellent, with most people particularly loving (and repeatably praising) the large villas that each have a private pool. As this is among the more expensive 5-star resorts on Phuket, expectations are very high, and a few guests report that it may not have been as wonderful as they hoped, and some report that the spa can be so full that bookings are tough.

Overall, however, guests seem extremely satisfied with the resort, the restaurants, the staff, and the detailed service. Some point out that while there is a Kids Club, it’s not really geared towards being a family resort, so it might be a better choice for couples than parents with children.
