A Blissful Beach Getaway: Exploring Amari Phuket and Coral Island

As you know, I’m always on the lookout for new and exciting places to visit, but there are a few destinations that always have a special place in my heart, Amari Phuket is one of them. This was actually my third visit to this luxurious resort, and I have to say, it just gets better every time.

As a destination Phuket is a little rough around the edges, it’s bright and exciting but it’s certainly not a tamed paradise, that being said, it’s one of my favorite places in Thailand.

Nestled on a secluded hillside overlooking the azure waters of the Andaman Sea, Amari Phuket is a luxurious oasis that promises to transport you to a world of pure indulgence. Though it’s only five minutes away from the hectic crowds of Patong from the moment you step foot in this stunning resort, you’ll be captivated by its contemporary design, warm hospitality, and breathtaking views of the ocean. The resort boasts a wide range of accommodations, from stylish rooms and suites each thoughtfully designed to provide the utmost comfort and relaxation. You can choose to wake up to panoramic sea views, unwind in a private plunge pool, or simply soak in the tropical ambience from your own balcony.

Located on the pristine white sands of Patong Beach. With its infinity pool, sun loungers, and beachfront dining, it’s the perfect spot to bask in the sun, savor refreshing cocktails, and revel in the laid-back beach vibe. The resort also offers a range of other amenities, including a fitness center, a spa, and multiple dining options serving delectable Thai and international cuisine. But perhaps the most enchanting feature of Amari Phuket is its mesmerizing sunset views. As the sun dips below the horizon, casting a golden glow across the sea, you’ll be left in awe of the sheer beauty of nature.

The Rooms at Amari Phuket

The rooms at Amari Phuket are nothing short of breathtaking. With floor to ceiling windows providing stunning panoramic views, you’ll never want to leave your room. The living room is spacious and comfortable, perfect for lounging after a long day of exploring the island and ordering room service 😉 The kitchenette allows for a quick and easy snack prep and the bathroom is well-appointed with all the necessary amenities. The bedroom is a haven of tranquility, with a plush bed and premium linens ensuring a restful night’s sleep. Whether you’re looking for a romantic getaway or a fun co-sleep with your bestie, the rooms at Amari Phuket are great.

Afternoon Tea in an Idylic Treehouse

A new experience at The Amari Phuket is their afternoon tea in a treehouse. Picture this: you’re seated high up in a cozy treehouse, surrounded by lush greenery and a stunning ocean view. The gentle breeze is blowing through the leaves, and the only sound you can hear is the chirping of the birds. You’re sipping on a perfectly brewed cup of tea, and indulging in delicious treats like scones with clotted cream and jam, mini sandwiches, and delectable pastries – It’s divine!

A Day Trip to Coral Island

While Amari Phuket is a haven of relaxation, there’s also plenty of adventure to be had in Phuket. One of the must-do experiences is a day trip to Coral Island with Nikorn Marine Tour. Known for its crystal-clear waters, vibrant coral reefs, and pristine beaches, Coral Island is a snorkeler’s paradise. Nikorn Marine Tour offers a range of exciting activities, from snorkeling and scuba diving to banana boating and parasailing, allowing you to explore the underwater world and soak in the stunning scenery. You can swim with colorful fish, marvel at the coral gardens, or simply relax on the powdery sands and soak up the tropical vibes.

Our excursion of choice was a day trip on their beautiful catamaran.

The day trip with Nikorn Marine Tour is an unforgettable adventure that will leave you with lifelong memories. The tour is well-organized, with experienced guides who ensure your safety and provide interesting insights about the marine life and the surrounding ecosystem. The boat itself is fabulous with so much bathing space on the front nets, two bathrooms, a shaded seating area and everything is pristinley kept, I would believe you if you told me the boat was brand new that day. After exploring the islands and the lush warm water surrounding them we sailed into the sunset with a glass of wine in hand and it truly was such a beautiful ‘pinch me’ moment within our trip.

Back at Amari Phuket, you can unwind after your day of adventure with a relaxing spa treatment, indulge in a sumptuous dinner at one of the resort’s restaurants, or simply savor a cocktail while gazing at the starry night sky. The resort’s serene ambiance, stunning views, and impeccable service ensure that you’ll leave feeling rejuvenated and refreshed.

The Jetty at Sunset

One of my favorite spots at Amari Phuket especially at sunset is The Jetty . This aesthetically gorgeous ‘bar on stilts’ in the water is an absolute gem that cannot be missed. If you’re looking for the perfect spot to enjoy a delicious cocktail at sunset, then look no further. This stunning location offers breathtaking views of the Andaman Sea and is the perfect place to unwind and take in the natural beauty of Thailand whilst enjoying the extensive list of cocktails and international liquors. This area of the hotel is never as busy as the main bars as it’s tucked further away towards the end of the property but with a buggy ride (the resort is so large it uses golf carts to ease guest journeys from the facilities) so it’s often just you and a handful of people only enjoying the stunning views and tranquil atmosphere.

After our stay at Amari Phuket we then spent four fabulous days at the barnd’s sister resort, Amari Vogue Krabi which you can read all about here.
