General information

Since its opening in 1988, the Thai beach resort of Amanpuri has established a reputation for personal service, fine cuisine and cruising, all of which complement the natural beauty of its tropical island surroundings. Amanpuri, a Sanskrit word meaning ‘place of peace’, reflects its name in many ways.

The resort’s graceful pavilions and villa homes are situated in a coconut plantation on a headland overlooking the Andaman Sea. Elevated walkways connect pavilions to the resort’s private white sand beach and facilities, including the first Aman Spa. Amanpuri offers a fleet of luxury cruisers, providing guests with the opportunity to explore the Andaman Sea.

Take pleasure in Thai traditions on the Andaman sea at Amanpuri Resort. Poking out of the palm canopy across the hillside, the distinctive pointed rooves of pavilions evoke the architecture of Ayutthaya, ancient capital of Siam. At this place of peace, interiors are enriched with custom-crafted furniture and original artworks and guests feel as though they are being entertained in the private residence of benevolent, taste-making friends. With hand-loomed silks and fragrant orchids there is never any mistaking that you are in Thailand – even when dining on fresh Japanese sashimi at Nama restaurant, sharing an Italian-inspired dish at convivial Arva, or snacking on crispy Mexican tostadas over pisco cocktails in the Latin American bar. Sample coconut-flavored kanom krok cakes and lemongrass tea by the black-tiled pool, then descend to the beach to snorkel, kayak or jet-ski in the Andaman sea.

In depth

LIVING

Set on a hillside overlooking a private white-sand beach on Phuket’s west coast, Amanpuri’s Pavilions are elegant and contemporary with oversized bathrooms and spacious dressing areas. Coconut palms cast tropical shadows onto private terraces. Reflecting the graceful architecture and gentle spirit of Thailand, Amanpuri’s Pavilions and Villas are tucked into verdant gardens on a peninsula overlooking the Andaman Sea.

The resort offers ten pavilions, four of which have private swimming pools and 17 villas from one bedroom to nine bedrooms, all with private swimming pools. Every pavilion and villa offer breath-taking views of the Andaman Sea or the resorts lush gardens.

DINING

Using the cornucopia of fresh, farm-to-fork flavors found locally, Amanpuri’s five authentic dining venues explore cuisines from across the globe. Nama, a fine dining experience celebrating Japan’s culinary artistry and Unesco-recognised tradition of washoku, a style of cuisine that elevates cooking to an art form that takes years to perfect. Under the guidance of Keiji Matoba, every Nama dish is imbued with a strong sense of its locale, focusing on the finest ingredients available nearby. At Amanpuri, this concept is brought alive with just-caught seafood from the waters surrounding Phuket, vibrant organic produce, and with specialist ingredients sourced direct from the markets of Osaka and Kyoto. Arva, is Amanpuri’s tribute to the earthy, heart-warming dishes of Italy, offering a menu that follows the country’s tradition of ‘cucina del raccolto’. The Thai Restaurant, authentic yet unique to Amanpuri, the menu places an emphasis on sharing plates. The Pool Terrace provides refreshing and informal dining inspired by the Mediterranean climate. The Lounge offers an authentic and joyful taste of Latin America with traditional Mexican street food as its inspiration. The menu of snacks, light dishes, raw and vegan options draws culinary inspiration from across Central and South America, complemented by handcrafted cocktails.

THE SPA

Thailand’s distinctive gentle healing arts have evolved over millennia to include both practical and philosophical therapeutic elements. With its tranquil setting and secluded beach, Amanpuri has long been a sanctuary for those seeking a positive shift in terms of wellbeing.
