The multi-award-winning Amatara Wellness Resort offers a unique five-star luxury experience for luxury travellers seeking a romantic escape, as well as for those looking to be pampered along the road to wellness. It really has something for everyone - here’s why.

  • Location: On Cape Panwa, on the southeast corner of Phuket.
  • Accommodations: The resort has 105 luxuriously appointed rooms and suites, ranging in size from 60 to 150 square metres, each with its own private balcony and either bay or ocean views.
  • Dining options: Your stay includes three meals per day which can be enjoyed at any of its three on-site restaurants, around the pool or in room. Guests can select from traditional Thai cuisine and international specialities, to a variety of fresh seafood and the best meat cuts, all sourced from local ingredients. The breakfast buffet is comprehensive. If you’re visiting as a wellness guest, ‘The Retreat’ café is exclusively at your disposal, serving delicious healthy options including raw juices, smoothies, salads, soups and raw desserts, as well as nourishing seasonal and innovative cuisine. Every afternoon in the Library, a range of snacks are served with a selection of Amatara’s signature teas. It’s an opportunity to be social or simply to sit and ponder some of the large volume of reading materials available.. 
  • What else is there: As a Wellness guest, the resort offers all-inclusive programs with a focus on detox, yoga, weight loss, fitness and relaxation. Included in packages are wellness consultations, physical analysis, daily massages and a customised list of treatments and activities based on your personal preferences. Renowned for world-class treatments. The Thai Hammam is a bathing ritual that blends Turkish and Moroccan practices with authentic Thai healing to provide a deeply soothing, detoxifying, exfoliating, and cleansing experience. The stunning infinity pool around which the resort is built has to be seen to be believed. Coming with a 180-degree ocean view, it’s the perfect place to soak your way to relaxation.
  • What’s nearby:If you feel like leaving the resort, the little town of Panwa is just a few minutes walk away and has a handful of authentic Thai restaurants. The hotel also provides a regular shuttle bus to nearby beaches, larger towns and the local market, and it can deliver you to a rather touristy shopping mall. 
  • Why go: This lovely, luxury resort ticks all the boxes for both a romantic escape somewhere idyllic, as well as an escape to improve your wellness. The serenity here cannot be beaten. 

The Space

Thailand’s first destination spa is set across multiple levels on a lush, tropical hillside, rising from the Andaman Sea. Each room is filled with a light airiness and a sense of expansiveness thanks to the high-pitched roofs and floor-to-ceiling windows that are typical of the hut like structures. Bathrooms are also oversized and luxuriously appointed with beautiful personal products, robes, slippers and fluffy towels.  The complimentary mini bar and a delicious assortment of fresh fruits and snacks are stocked daily and room service is available around the clock. With Pool Pavilions and Villas featuring their own extensive sundecks and infinity pools, it’s easy to simply laze in the tropical paradise enjoying both the privacy and luxury, without ever stepping outside. 

Where We Stayed

We were fortunate to stay in one of the beautiful Bay View Pool Villas, a 150 square metre space which enjoyed a decor of warm earthy tones, and had several practical seating options including an opium sofa that could be used to sleep an extra person. The view from our large and comfortable bed overlooked the shimmering waters of Cape Panwa bay; it's all very romantic, the windows coming with electronic blinds which are controlled via a remote. More like a house in its spaciousness, marbled floors led through two expansive bathrooms to a freestanding porcelain bath also positioned to take in the magnificent views. A large outside deck featured two sun lounges and a shade umbrella to ensure full use of our private infinity pool. Loves 

  • Some of the most lovely coastal views in Phuket.
  • The luxurious wellness sanctuary treatments.
  • Wonderful food and service. 

Insider Tips  

  • Ask for a room near the lobby if you don’t fancy walking up any hills.
  • Make use of the free canoes and paddle boards on the beach between 10-3pm.
  • Enjoy a cocktail at the Sun & Moon bar at sunset.
