Opened on November 20, Rosewood Phuket is the luxury hotel groupâ€™s first Southeast Asian resort. It occupies a prime 17-hectare plot south of Patong, with 71 villas and residential-style pool pavilions on lush grounds fronting Tri Trang Beach. Rosewood Phuket is also the launch site for Asaya, the brandâ€™s new bespoke wellness concept that includes an on-site atelier. The holistic ideal continues with sustainable design elements such as rain collection and solar panels, but itâ€™s Rosewoodâ€™s â€śSense of Placeâ€ť ethos that envelops the resortâ€”from gentle landscaping that channels the islandâ€™s natural beauty to rooms that embrace indoor-outdoor living, and the nods to southern Thai fishing villages at seafood restaurant Ta Khai.
66-76/356-888; Rosewood Phuket; doubles from US$967.
