Trisara Hotel Phuket

Ultra-posh all-villa resort on a gorgeous hillside

Featuring 39 luxurious pool villas in addition to even larger private residences, the Trisara Hotel is one of Phuket’s finest resorts. The hillside location insures that each villa has a beautiful view of the Andaman Sea, and each villa also comes with a private infinity pool among many other 5-star-deluxe amenities. Even the smaller villas are large enough for small families, and there is a Kids Club on site, but the resort is spread out enough that romantic couples will be equally comfortable.

The location not far from Phuket Airport makes it very convenient even for shorter trips, although it’s not an ideal location for those wanting to spend a lot of time in the Patong Beach nightlife. Check the reviews on this one and you’ll clearly see that this is among the highest rated resorts in Phuket, if not all of Asia. Of course, the room rates are also among the highest in Phuket, and spa treatments and restaurant food aren’t bargains either. Those looking for a splurge should find this to be a perfect choice as long as they can afford it.

What the reviews say

Reviews for the Trisara Hotel are universally excellent, with only one slight negative that comes up. Nearly everyone praises this resort as one of the finest they’ve ever seen, from the huge and modern villas to the service to the amazing views from the hillside to the food in the two restaurants to even the extensive DVD collection available.

The one negative that does come up in a number of reviews is the price, which is obviously a serious issue for many people. Obviously the room rates are near the top of the scale for Phuket resorts, but some were surprised by the high prices for spa treatments and the food in the restaurants. The bottom line is that the Trisara Hotel is a splurge and if you don’t mind paying at least a bit more than you would at most other 5-star Phuket resorts, you’ll have the stay of a lifetime and one that you can brag about to your friends and family members.
