Trisara, PHUKET, Thailand
Fringed by a natural coral reef, and set in a tropical rainforest that rises gently from the seafront between two headlands, Trisara really is unforgettable on a magical scale.
In Sanskrit, Trisara means ‘third garden in heaven’. We’re not sure where the first two are hiding, but Trisara is without doubt one of South-East Asia’s most stunning resorts.
Set in a tropical rainforest that rises gently from the seafront between two headlands, its private bay fringed by a natural coral reef, each of Trisara's one- to six-bedroom villas are jaw-droppingly turned out, oases of calm, luxury and sophistication, topped off with the award-winning, one Michelin-starred PRU restaurant, not to mention that famous Thai hospitality.
If beaches are your main priority, Trisara's private bay offers uniquely-secluded bathing, and while the seas can get a little choppy from May to October, their beauty more than makes up for it.
In fact the location – an eye-watering combination of tropical gardens, pools and reefs, topped off by super-attentive staff – has to be seen to be believed. With the hillside spa a haven of sheer organic indulgence and a world of options to help shape your experience on Phuket, Trisara really will stay etched on your mind.
