Thailand's 'Pearl of the Andaman' is an icon of pure island luxury.
Thailand’s original tropical escape, Phuket delivers generous servings of sun, surf and cosmopolitan flair. Located some 860 kilometres south of Bangkok, this is Thailand’s largest island, known for its turquoise waters, golden sands and plush facilities. This combination inspires its nickname, the ‘Pearl of the Andaman’ – a fitting moniker for such an exotic icon. The liveliest district on Phuket is Patong Beach, where visitors indulge in sensual spa treatments, piquant southern curries and exhilarating water sports. And whether it’s a poolside mojito or a night on the dance floor, Patong offers more ways to unwind and refresh than any other destination on the island.
