SALA Phuket

SALA Phuket Review

Sala Phuket Resort and Spa on Mai Khao Beach is one of our all-time favourite hideaways in Phuket, but it is not a hotel for everyone. It is a romantic resort fully dedicated to couples, with a unique setting and total privacy. Such a luxury doesn’t come cheap but still is affordable, and Sala Phuket is one of the best hotels in Phuket.

The Beach11 km long beach, quiet but the sand is a little more coarse than in the south, and the sea gets deep quickly. No sun loungers or umbrellas on the beach.
The Hotel5-star with 68 fully private villas
The Facilities1 restaurant and superb spa.
What's Around?Not much around except other luxury resorts and a small shopping village called Turtle Village.
Who is it for?Great for couples looking for total privacy in their pool villas and travellers in search of peace and long walks on the beach. People who have no interest in shopping or nightlife.
Worth Noticing The pool villas are surrounded by a high wall offering great privacy, but no views.

The Villas

The rooms at SALA Phuket Mai Khao Beach Resort have all the high-tech features you can expect from such a luxury resort, plus some nice modern Thai design touch. Quite minimalist but not over the top: just right.

Sala Phuket on Mai Khao Beach

Each of the 68 rooms and fully private villas has a huge pool surrounded by high walls. Not a foot bath or a ‘plunge pool’: here you get to play in a proper swimming pool. The outdoor bathroom is a great feature too. More than just an outdoor shower, it’s an actual real design bathroom with a large oval bathtub set by the poolside, with a fancy chandelier above. If it rains, it’s even more fun!

Designers had to make tough choices and decided that for such an amount of money, guests would spend more time outside by the pool or outdoor sofas than inside their rooms. Otherwise, they would have booked another resort. So less space was assigned to the room and compensated by a very high ceiling.

Restaurants and bars

Sala Phuket Resort

Fully open-air and faces the lawn and the sea beyond. The Sala Phuket restaurant serves an excellent selection of modern Thai dishes. The bar comes with large round sofas and giant bean bags. The large swings hanging from tall casuarina trees by the sea are perfect for a couple to watch the sunset with a cocktail in hand. The main pool is large and surrounded by inviting sofas; no fancy decoration here; open spaces and simple lines.


The SALA Spa Phuket has a modern design inspired by Sino-Portuguese style, resembling a Chinese water garden. When you enter the spa, you are surrounded by the calming effects of water. You can choose from a variety of SALA Spa signature rituals or create a customized treatment by combining modern and ancient techniques. The spa uses products by Pevonia Botanica, made from 100% natural plant extracts and pure essential oils.

The location: Mai Khao Beach

romantic dinner phuket1

Mai Khao is an endless remote beach in northern Phuket. Far from everything, far from Patong and far from any nightlife. Sala is a perfect hideaway for romantic couples. A good option is to rent a car at the resort (or at the airport when you arrive) to explore any part of Phuket or even discover Phang Nga Bay.
