The newly opened Rosewood Phuket hotel brings a new level of luxury to the shores of Emerald Bay
Nestled along 600 metres of one of the last remaining secluded beaches on Phuket—at Emerald Bay on the island’s southwestern coast—the newly opened Rosewood Phuket brings a new level of ultra-luxurious accommodation to Thailand. Guests can enjoy convenient access to the bustling seaside towns along this stretch of coastline, while Phuket’s cultural heart, the historic Old Town, is just a short drive away.
Inspired by the serenity and sophistication of luxurious beachside estates, the resort—which is part of the international Rosewood Hotels and Resorts group—features 71 pool pavilions and villas immersed within a 43-acre verdant landscape, creating a tropical beach hideaway perfectly placed for guests to explore the hidden charms of Thailand’s most famous island destination.
“In design, art, cuisine and most especially in gracious service synonymous with Thai culture, at Rosewood Phuket our brand’s ‘A Sense of Place’ philosophy has found a rich context in which to flourish,” says Sonia Cheng, CEO of Rosewood Hotel Group. “We are also thrilled that guests will experience our first Asaya, an innovative concept in holistic and integrative wellness journeys.”
Asaya is designed to provide a unique opportunity for guests to discover their own true path to wellness. Upon arrival, experts create bespoke experiences for guests and help them choose organic, homegrown herbs and ingredients to be used in tailored treatments. A menu of alternative therapies includes: watsu therapy, reiki healing, Chi Nei Tsang, life force healing therapy, and sound therapy. Fitness and lifestyle experiences include: body stretching, pilates, personal training sessions, high-intensity interval training, and yoga and meditation.
“Our resort opens a window to a unique Phuket experience in this very special setting, be it a romantic getaway or family and friends holiday, a once-in-lifetime celebration or a journey to discover the hidden natural wonders of the island,” says Andrew Turner, Managing Director of Rosewood Phuket.
