Phuket best pool villas

Staying in one of the amazing pool villas of Phuket, overlooking the Andaman Sea is, without a doubt, the most fantastic way to enjoy a holiday on the island. If you can afford such luxury, of course. On average, it is pretty expensive, but it is also unforgettable. As we live in Phuket most of the time, we get plenty of chances to try the best hotels in Phuket and every time it is worth the price. A pool villa is not just a room but a way of life. While you can drive around and explore the island, you will probably spend some time relaxing in your villas, especially if you pick one with an infinity pool!

1. Trisara

Trisara Phuket

Location: near Naithon Beach

Trisara is the ultimate Pool Villa in Phuket. The villas are fantastic, and all come with a large infinity pool over the ocean. The price is very high and the location is remote, so Trisara Villa is not for everyone. Trisara addresses travellers searching for a romantic escape away from the crowds. Trisara also features Pru, the only restaurant in Phuket receiving one star from the new Michelin Guide 2019. The spa is also famous; some villas even come with private spa treatment rooms. We tried it, but it wasn’t our thing. The private beach is rather small, but you are not far from the beautiful Naithon beach and the hidden Banana Beach. Read more

Sri Panwa Phuket

Location: Cape Panwa

Sri Panwa Phuket is one of the best villa experiences we had in recent years. It has everything we needed for a weekend escape and a lot more! The villas with large infinity pools are fantastic, with beautiful views of the ocean and the nearby islands. Waking up in the morning with a full ocean view is a rare luxury you will not forget. The bathroom is immense, and the living areas are convenient to spend your free time in. Sri Panwa resort is not at the top of the list because it lacks a beach, which is often a requirement for most travellers, but not for us. The resort is immense, with five excellent restaurants and a jaw-dropping rooftop bar so popular; that you have to book it weeks in advance. Read more
