There’s no denying that Thailand is a beautiful part of the world; and as well as the spectacular scenery, it’s home to some truly stunning resorts. The highest room categories at these top resorts are often made up of wonderfully luxurious pool villas, and here are 6 swoon-worthy examples…
A relatively new retreat, we love the architectural treehouse styling of Keemala, which is nestled in the rainforest near to Patong Beach. The Bird’s Nest Villas are at the top of the tree (both literally and in terms of room-type hierarchy), with private lap pools and far-reaching views across the forest and out to the ocean beyond.
Santhiya Koh Phangan Resort & Spa, near Koh Samui
The delightful pool villas at Santhiya are set into the hillside, overlooking a sandy beach at the top of Phangan island. The authentic Thai aesthetic is very appealing, but it’s the views over the gorgeous cove below (especially at sunset) that are the real highlight.
The Naka Phuket
The pool villas seemly levitate over the mountainside, and with wraparound walls of glass you almost feel like you’re floating above the bay. We love the cutting-edge architectural design; it’s no wonder it was named by style-bible Wallpaper* magazine as ‘Best New Hotel’ in 2014.
Rayavadee Resort, Krabi
We’re huge fans of this secluded hideaway (so secluded it’s only accessible by speedboat from nearby Krabi). The setting is simply stunning; the resort is surrounded on three-sides by sandy bays, with plenty of lush tropical vegetation providing a beautifully landscaped backdrop. The pools are huge, with ample room to swim a few laps before coming to rest on your private terrace.
Melati Beach Resort, Koh Samui
This five star resort is located in a particularly lovely part of Koh Samui. You’ll love the feeling of space you get in the pool villas, many of which are over 200sqm in size.
Pimalai, Koh Lanta
The clue is in the name: Pimalai, which translates as ‘a little patch of Heaven.’ Away from the hustle and bustle found in many parts of Koh Lanta, the area surrounding this resort remains virtually untouched and feels very peaceful. All of the pool villas feature infinity pools which overlook the turquoise waters of the tranquil Andaman Sea; it’s hard to imagine a more relaxing position.
