Phuket

Thailand’s lovely island of Phuket, covered with rainforests and mountains, lies in the Andaman Sea south of Bangkok. Trisara Resort, named after the Sanskrit word that means The Garden of the Third Heaven, is surrounded by lush, exotic gardens, with 60 pool villas that face the sea and private residences that range from two to seven bedrooms.

The new Land and Sea Charter Experience is perfect for family adventures, with a private helicopter tour over the UNESCO World Heritage site of PhangNga Bay that includes Champagne for adults, a private yacht cruise with a picnic on an isolated beach, an in-villa barbecue dished up by the Trisara’s culinary team with a private chef and butler and a photography takeaway compiled from your images in the resort’s own digital studio DDEN. Prices begin at $3,350 per night in a two-bedroom villa, with a minimum three-night stay.
