Blending in with its natural tropical landscape, the ultra-luxurious resort is a treat to one’s senses.
Phuket, being home to some of Thailand’s most breathtaking beaches, is a top choice when it comes to picking an island getaway.
That’s why we’re delighted to know that Rosewood Hotels & Resorts has debuted its first Southeast Asia resort on Emerald Bay in southwestern Phuket, along with its pioneering wellness concept that is Asaya.
Here are three highlights of this stunning resort.
Blending in with nature
While many resorts on the forested and mountainous island seek to stand out with a starkly modern and minimalist aesthetic, Rosewood Phuket blends in perfectly with its tropical destination. With its 71 pool pavilions and villas immersed in a 17-hectare verdant landscape, the resort has created a tropical beach hideaway for guests.
The resort design is courtesy of Melbourne-based BAR Studio, who has interpreted Rosewood’s “A Sense of Place” philosophy by means of a contemporary, environmentally sensitive architectural style that blends organically with the natural surroundings. Guests will find themselves waking up to panoramic ocean views above the jungle canopy, and marveling at vistas amid hilltop forest, lakes, wetlands, and sun-washed beach.
Guests can expect to find a piece of paradise in each sea-facing, residential-style room whose interiors blend east and west, contemporary and traditional. Those staying in the resort’s expansive garden terraces can enjoy relaxed outdoor seating, a daybed, an infinity pool, and Andaman Sea views. For a taste of ultimate luxury, opt for the 796-square-meter Ocean House, a spacious oasis which comprises a master bedroom, twin bedroom, separate living and dining rooms, as well as garden courtyards and shady terraces. The Ocean House, true to its nautical-inspired name, also comes with a private infinity pool.
Guests looking for a spot of pampering won’t be disappointed at Rosewood Phuket, where bespoke wellness experiences await. At Asaya, experts from the “Wellness Ateliers” will guide guests as they pick from organic homegrown herbs and ingredients to be used in their tailored treatments. Here, they’ll be spoilt for choice by a menu of alternative therapies including Watsu Therapy, Reiki Healing, Chi Nei Tsang, Life Force Healing Therapy, and Sound Therapy. Other fitness and lifestyle experiences available include body stretching, Pilates, personal training sessions, high-intensity interval training, yoga, and meditation.
If some company is in order, why not head to the signature wellness suites, which cater to small groups? Guests can enjoy dedicated treatment areas, outdoor relaxation spaces, and even a Watsu pool with their loved ones.
