If you wish to stay in Amari Phuket, we would strongly recommend staying in the Ocean Wing perched atop the beach wing of the resort. Comprising 183 units, divided into one-bedroom and two-bedroom suites with extra space, including kitchens and dining areas, the Ocean Wing introduces a new standard of accommodation to Phuket.
Staying at the Ocean Wing gives you accessibility to an elevated perspective. It is also home to the exclusive Clubhouse, where club guests can enjoy awe-inspiring 270-degree view of Patong Bay. Designed to offer enhanced privacy and enjoyment, the Clubhouse features an infinity pool, a sun deck, and its own fitness centre, all of which are reserved exclusively for club guests.
Because the Ocean Wing is perched on a hill, we were brought up to our suite by a buggy. Rest assured it’s not inconvenient as the buggies always arrive within a minute of us calling the front-desk. When we reached our suite, we were given a room tour. We were also given a brochure which indicated the facilities, amenities and daily programmes in the resort premises.
Enjoy amazing views if you stay in the Ocean Wing suite with balcony.
Guest can visit the well-equipped FIT Centre to burn some calories. Amari Phuket also has resort shops, a dive centre and a tailor.
We ventured to Amari Phuket’s private jetty at the very edge of this private cove. A prime viewing spot, guests will enjoy a unique view of three beaches: Patong, Kalim and Tri Trang. The Jetty offers another spot to relax in the sun or enjoy a memorable private dining experience under the stars in the evening. Here guests can also grab a snorkel and explore the schools of colourful marine life.
Along the route to the Jetty, you would also find many instagrammable spots.
Head down to the Samutr Bar aptly named for its stunning ocean views as “Samutr” is Thai for ocean. Guests can relax during the day lounging on day beds or until late with nightly entertainment.
Amari Phuket has three pools, and I especially love the infinity pool exclusive to Clubhouse guests. You could even order tapas and drinks and just laze by the pool all day.
The other lap pools are also perfect for a swim or just to lounge the day away whilst enjoying drinks and foods from the adjacent La Gritta serving authentic Italian dishes. Guests can also relax with a cocktail and light nibbles at the Rim Talay Pool Bar.
Lastly, if you are in the mood, be sure to check out the resort’s Breeze Spa. Ideal for a day of relaxation, guests can choose from a range of body massages and facial treatments in open-air pagodas or “salas” dotted across the hillside.
I really enjoyed my stay here in Amari Phuket. The hospitality, the food and the amenities made me not want to leave!
