A Weekend at Amari Phuket Resort
Amari Phuket is a resort with a very unique location on Patong Beach. The hotel is blessed with its own beach, an amazing view on the entire bay and most of the rooms are facing the sea! This 4 star resort (which should definitely be a 5 star) is at the southern end of Patong past the bridge, making it the perfect hotel if you want to enjoy the best of both worlds. Amari Phuket is close enough to the fun of Patong and still offers the peace and quiet of the ocean and a green surrounding.
Amari Phuket resort is divided in 2 wings: the original seafront wing and the new luxurious hillside ‘Club Suites’, offering a total of 380 superbly appointed rooms all with sea views.
Guests can enjoy 3 restaurants, 3 large swimming pools and a beautiful spa with private sea view massage rooms, and even a fancy jetty to suntan like a movie star.
The Restaurants at Amari Phuket
La Gritta, the now very popular Italian restaurant overlooking the sea, is widely know as being the most romantic restaurant in Phuket. Not only the food is fantastic but Chef Patrizia dedication to her Italian cuisine is obvious. She cooks with love and makes sure each customer is having a great time… and they do! Just above the restaurant is a beautiful seafront bar with comfortable sofas facing the sea. Holiday selfies can’t get any better! Read more about La Gritta
Rim Talay Restaurant
Also near the sea, Rim Talay is where you will most probably enjoy a superb buffet breakfast but also lunch and dinner. In front of Rim Talay, is a large outdoor sitting area with an open bar where having a cocktail or two is a perfect treat.
The Club Lounge
If you are lucky enough to stay in a Club Suite up the hill, you will also enjoy your breakfast lunch of dinner with panoramic views from the Club lounge. Since it is just next to your villa you will probably spend a lot of time by the pool or terrace. Large infinity pool, again with panoramic views of the bay, large panoramic terrace to enjoy one more holiday drink and a small restaurant for any meal but mostly convenient for breakfast. As the rooms are located on the hillside, you can call for a buggy to come and pick you up anytime to take you to the lobby or parking.
Not to miss is a walk through the hotel jungle to ‘The ‘Jetty’ where you also can spend a nice peaceful day in one of the nice loungers and enjoy the a drink from the bar. A great place to do snorkeling as well! For those who want to keep in shape, the fitness room is well equipped and tennis courts are available.
The Club Suite Room
We stayed in an exclusive Club Suite located at the very top of the hill, as beautifully design apartment with high ceiling, large balconies and floor to ceiling windows and stunning views of the bay of Patong. With a large and well appointed cooking station, a central island and a large dining area, the 2 bedroom villa is a perfect place to stay with a small family. The balcony is immense with sun loungers and great to sit with a glass of wine, admiring the clouds drifting above hectic Patong.
A special mention should also be made about the entire crew and the management. Their well-known attention to small details and they permanent effort make sure everyone feels at home.
Once you are done exploring the many features of the hotel and you are ready for some fun, Patong Beach is not far and tuk-tuks or taxis are always standing by to give you a quick ride.
