A stylish and contemporary retreat on a quiet stretch of a glorious golden beach.

SALA Phuket Mai Khao Beach Resort is the epitome of sophistication, tucked away in a remote area of Phuket. Its location on the golden Mai Khao Beach, the longest beach in Phuket at almost seven miles long, is its winning feature. It’s part of the Sirinat National Park, which encompasses quiet beaches and a small mangrove forest rich with wildlife. And the best part of Mai Khao Beach is its yearly visitors – sea turtles who nest on the beach from November to February.

The SALA spa is a sleek haven of treatments to detoxify, scrub and massage away all your stresses. At the award-winning SALA Restaurant, your tastebuds are in for a treat. Tuck into a range of dishes from cuisine including Mexican, Italian and Thai for lunch and dinner. The Thai themed night is definitely one not to miss, where you can dine on delicious local dishes laid out buffet-style to traditional dancing and live music. For more intimate dining options, opt for a private gazebo or dinner on the rooftop, where a reflection pool flows around each dining booth for a tranquil experience.

The hotel’s design is sleek with crisp white furnishings and spacious outdoor living areas and an outdoor bathroom in each room or villa – a romantic experience whether you’re soaking in the elegant oval stone bath or showering under the stars. On the second floor, Deluxe Balcony Rooms feature a large balcony complete with a day bed while Garden Pool Villas are on the ground floor and have a pool and garden. For your own private gateway and a larger standalone villa with a walled garden and private pool, we recommend upgrading to a SALA Pool Villa.
