The award winning, no-tan-line-skinny-dipping astoundingly sexy, Pavilions of Phuket is launching its sister property, The Pavilions Phuket Suites, which, unlike the aforementioned Pavilions, is not an adults only venue. Set for a June 1 opening, this property is a stunner!
Perched on the hillside adjacent to the existing sultry Pavilions, The Pavilions Phuket Suites will be family friendly, but with the same talented hospitality management team of multi-national personalities that is the driving force behind its seductive big sister.
Branded as being “casual luxury”, it is where you can leave the shoes at home but not the swimmers. It is sleek, contemporary and European with a Thai sleight of hand in its ambience. Laid back serenity in your own private haven with the full amenities and service of a hotel, The Pavilions Phuket Suites is moments from the soft white sand of Layan Beach, if you ever want to leave your own personal cocoon of indulgence to explore the surrounding area. Set in tropical lushness, the verdant landscape brings the sublime Thai serenity from outside in.
The tempting hint is there in the sleek inviting apartments of which there are in total 41 suites of different configurations. You can pick to sit in your own private oasis garden, relax in one of the hill view suites or claim a 2-bedroom pool loft. The furnishings are stunning with a predominant theme of blacks, greys, startling flashes of red and an abundance of large Asian influenced artworks. Despite being family orientated, there is a subtle nod to the big sister’s alluring ways in that the bedrooms are dominated by the brilliant portrayal of a female’s tattooed back. The bathrooms beckon for an indulgent soak in the freestanding tub with or without a partner, a yellow rubber duck or two and maybe the odd irascible bambino.
The Pavilions Phuket Suites sit in an amphitheater, where the epicenter of life revolves around a palm-fringed oasis named “Firefly”. Here you will find a massive but elegantly fitted out restaurant and bar area, where casual chic is definitely the only way to describe it. From the restaurant’s deck you can step into what must be the most incredible freeform swimming pool to be found on the whole of Phuket, if not Asia. Thousands of tiny lights glow in the pool’s 60-meter bed giving a phosphorescent apparition of millions of fireflies fluttering. Firefly’s kitchen is theatrically open for guests to appreciate the aromas, the bustle and the food eye candy. Contemporary with a Mediterranean touch, the cuisine is total fusion of the decadent West having a somewhat raunchy affair with the flavorsome East.
The resort is complete with a body loving Spa and gymnasium. The adults are welcome to take advantage of the facilities of the big sister property where the sunsets from the 360° Bar are a lesson in the unfolding blazes of red sunsets.
The Pavilions Phuket Suites is where you can chill out in decadent luxury without leaving the kids at home. With opening specials starting from 6,000 THB, it is a steal for some time out to take a deep breath in sublime Phuket.
