Traditional Thai décor and unrivalled sea views epitomise this chic hotel.

Sprawled across a jungle-covered hillside, the Amari Phuket slowly meanders downhill to a beachside swimming pool, with almost every corner offering stunning panoramic views out across Patong Bay. Renowned for its service, you’ll be greeted by smiles everywhere you go. For those that like taking it easy, a lift will take you down to the small, secluded coral beach. Here, you can snorkel or swim at high tide, while low tide brings the perfect opportunity to explore the reef and rock pools of the shore.

If you want to experience life beyond the hotel walls, hop aboard the shuttle bus and travel to Kata Beach. If you’re after something a little livelier, the vibrant nightlife of Patong is close enough to enjoy a taste, but far enough away to ensure that the tranquil ambience of the hotel remains blissfully intact.

When you’ve worked up an appetite exploring the beautiful local beaches and intriguing culture, head to one of the hotel’s delightful restaurants. Enjoy the cool sea breeze as you pull up a chair at the casual yet elegant Rim Talay restaurant, which serves up a range of both buffet and à la carte international cuisine to a backdrop of Patong Beach. La Gritta presents an entirely different, more sophisticated feel, featuring delicious fresh Italian cuisine on its menu. The Jetty is the perfect spot for a romantic candlelit dinner. Sat out over the water, you can enjoy a selection of tapas during this unique dining experience beneath a canopy of stars.

The rooms here range from the simple yet comfortable Superior Ocean Facing Rooms complete with a balcony, to the elegantly indulgent Two Bedroom Ocean Facing Suites. Found in the Ocean Wing, the hotel’s suites provide you with access to The Clubhouse, where you’ll enjoy understated seaside elegance and use of the super infinity pool, sun deck and FIT Centre.
