Set amid a coconut plantation, Amanpuri – the inaugural property in Aman’s intimate and renowned portfolio – overlooks a crescent of white sand and turquoise water on Phuket’s west coast. Guest Pavilions and Villas enjoy exclusive privacy and panoramic views of the Andaman Sea, enhanced nightly by magnificent sunsets.
Beyond the secluded beach, a fleet of cruisers is on-hand for island hopping, fishing and scuba-diving, while a number of Buddhist temples lie within easy reach. Eastern philosophy is practised in the Aman Spa too, a temple of holistic health housed in six serene pavilions.
Discretely positioned across the coconut grove, Amanpuri’s wood-panelled, light-filled guest Pavilions all enjoy kingsize beds, large bathrooms, dressing areas and spacious outdoor salas for lounging and dining. While the distinctive pointed, tiled roofs nod to the ancient architecture of Ayutthaya, inside the aesthetic is clean and contemporary. Villas are individually decorated with handpicked art and antiques.
Part of the original and most comprehensive Aman Spa worldwide, the Amanpuri Holistic Wellness Centre is the first to offer the services of a certified medical team from the Thanyapura group working alongside Aman’s experts in ancient healing techniques and alternative therapies.
With an open-minded holistic ethos and state-of-the-art technology, the Spa leaves no stone unturned in a quest to enhance the wellbeing of every guest, offering anti-ageing, sport and aesthetic medical services and diagnostics all overseen by Thanyapura Health & Sports Resort.
