Pavilions Phuket Resort

Romantic boutique luxury resort with pool villas in seclusion

Featuring 48 private pool villas in a secluded setting, the Pavilions Phuket Resort is ideal for honeymooners and other romantic couples looking for something special. It’s about 10 minutes by free shuttle to the beach, but the remote location is part of the appeal based on a long list of very positive reviews. The modern Thai architecture blends nicely into its environment, and every detail is looked after.

The villas come in 5 different classes, each with a private infinity pool, all the way up to the 3-bedroom villas. Each villa also has a living room, kitchenette, state of the art sound system, and free wi-fi. With the villas so self-contained, the resort doesn’t have a wide range of common facilities for families, but it does have exceptional service and everything a couples resort should have. It’s approaching the upper end of the Phuket resort price scale, but considering all that’s included it’s quite good value, and rather popular so booking well in advance is wise.

What the reviews say

Reviews for the Pavilions Phuket Resort are almost universally glowing, with nearly everyone agreeing that this is one of the finest resorts they’ve seen. The service, starting from airport pickup, gets very high marks from almost everyone, as do the large and luxurious rooms and even the food in the restaurants.

A few people do have complaints, of course, but they are overshadowed by the vast majority who seem extremely satisfied so it would seem unlucky to have problems of your own. The remote nature of the resort is a plus for most people, but if you want to get involved in the nightlife it might actually be a negative. Overall this one seems to live up to the relatively high room rates.
