Hidden in an ancient valley on the western edge of Phuket, The Naka Phuket is Duangrit Bunnag’s most daring hotel to date, with 94 glass-built villas cantilevering out from the mountainside. An outdoor pool is attached to each of the secluded living spaces, offering guests all the privacy they need to find their natural equilibrium. At the rooftop spa, which overlooks the forest and the ocean, cicadas provide the spellbinding soundtrack to soothing body scrubs and massages. Guests can also unwind in the hotel’s Olympic-sized infinity pool, or feel the powder-fine sand between their toes on the wave-lapped private beach.
Tantalizing fresh market produce is served at the hotel’s three restaurants, including The Nava, which sits along a natural watercourse that Bunnag ingeniously integrated into his final design. Here, as in the rest of the hotel, there’s a sense of being cocooned in a secret valley. Privacy and serenity are guaranteed, but for those seeking adventure, Phuket City is only a 20-minute taxi ride away.
The Naka Phuket raises the bar of Phuket’s tourist industry with accommodation, facilities and service which are certain to exceed everyone’s expectations. This 94 pool villa resort is perfectly located in Kamala Bay, and is possibly the only resort on the island to offer two natural settings where an exclusive beach meets with an unspoiled hillside. The resort is only accessible via an isolated mountain road making it the perfect location for those seeking to experience the ultimate feeling of seclusion, but as the resort is only 10 km. away from Phuket’s bustling nightlife area of Patong, it is also the ideal choice for travelers who seek a true city experience.
