Wanakarn Resort – Phuket, Thailand

A heavenly experience

We all dream of visiting some place as distant as Thailand, and when you book with Relais and Chateaux, you can do so in exotic luxury. The Wanakarn Resort in Phuket is here to awaken your senses to this wonderful place.

This wonderful getaway is just 40 minutes from the airport, and sits upon 15 acres of perfect beachfront. Many describe the experience as heavenly as the help staff there helps you recharge, relax, and understand what true Thai hospitality feels like.

At Wanakarn, there are two beaches, infinity pool, jacuzzi, and swim up pool bar so you can take the sun like you want it. The facilities also include indoor/outdoor dining, wine cave, 24-7 bar, Spa, sunset terrace bar, private wellness center, fitness, sports, souvenirs, business center, and even a medical clinic, just in case. Each villa also has complimentary mountain bikes so you can explore the area.

When it comes to accommodations at Wanakarn, luxury and intimacy wins. There are 14 private villas each with private outdoor showers, and 18 x 13 foot plunge pools. The amenities continue with private garden terraces, en-suite bathroom, Jacuzzi, rain shower, and super King Bed with luscious linens.

All villas also come with a pillow menu, but you can take it to a higher level of comfort in the Grand Ocean Villa. This very large villa has views of both the lagoon, and the Andaman Sea. It sleeps up to 8 people with plush King and Two Queen Beds, surround speakers, dining room, kitchenette, outdoor living area, private plunge pool, and rainforest shower as well.

To do something different from what you could at home, try Wanakarns experiences. For the romantic, enjoy a private 4 course meal, aromatherapy for two, champagne on arrival, and afternoon tea for two. For a romantic wellness getaway, add a body scrub, massage, daily aromatherapy, private detox dinner, and optional yoga.

For adventure, you can discover Thailand with a beach massage, cooking class, and a trip to the Phuket market. You can also have an authentic Thai meal served in your villa, feed and bathe with elephants, zip line through the rainforest, or do some private snorkeling. Afternoon tea is also an option to make days on your trip exceptional.

Relais and Chateaux Resorts aim to make any trip you take with them an awesome one. For more about Wanakarn Resort and what they offer, visit them online at the link, and create a vacation for the books.
