Twinpalms Phuket

Phuket, Thailand


All of the rooms and suites have a contemporary tropical feel with parquet floors, bespoke furnishings in tones of cream, cappuccino and chocolate, and vivid original art - commissioned from local artists - adorns the walls. Big bouncy kingsize beds with fat pillows folded like Pitons have cockpit controls for everything that can be turned on or off electronically.

Indulgent bathrooms are kitted out with His and Hers sinks, luxurious toiletries in generous jars, and loads of sumptuous towels. Delightful in-room extras include a cafetiere for fresh espresso, beach sandals (which everyone falls back on in the tropical rain), chocolates and fruit. But best of all are the shady terraces that overlook the sparkling pool. There’s room for 2 to sprawl and snooze on the sofas, a fan to keep you cool and soft lighting so you can sit out with your Travel Scrabble and a glass of Montrachet long after the moon’s in the sky.

Grand Deluxe Rooms have shuttered terraces for added privacy and Jacuzzi baths as well as rain showers. The Suites are even more luxurious with spacious terraces and smart sitting rooms, and also benefit from butler service.

The real luxury, however, is to be found in the celebrity price-tagged newer residences. These are the 1- and 2-Bedroom Duplex Pool Suites, and the Penthouses. These are set back from the main hotel area, and are, strictly speaking, the kind of place you want to live in. Forever. Designs vary but expect egg-shaped granite baths, double-height sitting rooms, and some even have wine cellars, cigar humidors and a courtyard, garden or rooftop plunge pool! The views, however, can be disappointing with some windows facing walls or an unloved patch of ground next door. If looking out matters more than what’s inside, specify when booking.

Save to favouritesPrintMailTwinpalms PhuketSince it opened in 2005, this Swedish-owned resort has been heralded as the hip place to stay: a monochromatic design revolution with clean lines and isosceles roofs. The open, airy lobby, with its high-flown ceilings and glossy floors, sets the style and marks the transition from town to tranquillity. Shady, stream-lined walkways lead to the [eating:TH043:restaurant], pool bar, library, spa and fitness room, while the navy swimming pool and ‘lagoons’ glisten between emerald and white gardens. Newer, extravagantly equipped [rooms:TH043:residences] set back from the immaculately kept gardens offer an alternative to the original (still stylish) [r:TH043:rooms and suites] housed in the wooden-shuttered buildings around the pool. Surin Beach has become decidedly upmarket in recent years, emerging as the top choice when it comes to public beaches on Phuket. Here resides Twinpalms’ outpost: Catch Beach Club with its restaurant and sundeck. People-watch from handmade mats and huge comfy pillow during the day, or sip pre-dinner cocktails on the deck by the light of purple neon and a witchy pit fire. It’s so flattering to the new season’s colours.
