Hidden on a secluded peninsula on Thailand’s ever popular Phuket Island is the flagship of the Aman family, Amanpuri. With world-wide acclaim and every possible award in the industry to its name, Amanpuri is every bit the magical gem its reputation suggests. With over twenty years under its luxurious belt, Amanpuri is the original master of creating the kind of holiday experience that guests continue to dream about long after they’ve left.

Culture and nature fuse seamlessly here, as does traditional Thai architecture with the crystal clear aqua blue of the Andaman Sea, of which Amanpuri has unobstructed access to with its private crescent shaped, white sand beach. Amanpuri’s signature trademark is its midnight blue freshwater pool, which has deservingly been the obsession of countless publications around the world. In classic Aman service, complimentary Thai tea is served poolside daily as you are hypnotized by the enchanting sounds of live traditional Thai music drifting in the background.

Also infamous is the Aman Spa, boasting a one of a kind granite steam room and offering complimentary yoga and meditation sessions to all guests. In keeping with local architecture, Amanpuri’s pavilions share multi-tiered roofs and interiors of warm woods and Eastern contemporary design. Here, simplicity does not mean bare; understated luxury is deftly crafted.

Enjoy an authentic Thai meal while laying about in the outdoor salas, overlooking the pristine waters from above the peaks of olive green coconut trees. The gentle scent of sweet frangipani blooms serves only to lull you into a deep and comfortable nap with the warm breeze slipping by as you lay back against triangular, plush Thai pillows. It is impossible at Amanpuri, to tell where the hotel begins and where nature ends. Romantic hideaways abound here, with a seemingly endless choice of salas hidden between expanses of trees and flowers, peeking from beneath the sparkling blue waters. There is absolutely no mystery as to why Amanpuri has remained a beloved favorite of the most jaded travelers for over two decades and spawned the chain of Aman Resorts that would become synonymous with luxury and exquisite service.
