Eden for all ages

Setting

Glittering Emerald Bay

The world really is your oyster – and pearl – at Rosewood Phuket, a blissful seaside sensation on Emerald Bay. Here, holidays are whiled away idyllically between the hotel’s herb-tastic spa, the ravishing trio of restaurants and the spacious oceanic sleeping quarters. You’ll also want to factor in time to go and say hello to your neighbours: tropical fishies, gargantuan elephants and friendly monks. Eye-poppingly beautiful tropical luxury can come with an ‘adults-only’ tag, but this particular Eden is designed for all ages: little Smiths might even come home versed in the art of traditional kite-making and Muay Thai…

Our favourite rooms

Opt for a room with direct beach access for maximum seaside smugness; if your budget allows, splash out on one of the villas and pretend you own the place – if only briefly.

Poolside

The hotel has cleverly sliced its paradisiacal pool, perched above a blissful stretch of white-sand beach, into different sections. There’s a sporty stretch for lengths, a kids’ section for all-ages frolics, a quiet section for lovebirds, and so on. Hit up the handy poolside Shack when you need light refreshments. Picture the scene by night, when it twinkles magically with lights…

Spa

Your body really is a temple at Rosewood Phuket’s Asaya spa, which is designed to be a true sanctuary for wellness. There are yoga areas, tranquil treatment rooms, a herb laboratory and an extensive list of spa rituals. Pluck fresh-as-can-be herbs for your treatments in the spa garden; you’ll even be shown how the essential oils are extracted.

Packing tips

Bring finery for Ta Khai restaurant and an appetite for seafood.

Also

Guests who have time to kill between check-out and the woeful flight home can use the hotel’s swimming pool and luggage-storage area.

Furry Smiths weighing in at 15 kilogrammes (or less) are very welcome: they’ll even get an on-loan bed, bowl, water, a toy and a homemade treat. Ask staff about the dog-walking service, puppy menu, pet beds and in-room doggie dining menu. Woof. See more pet-friendly hotels in Phuket.

There’s also the option of learning a bit of Muay Thai…

Learn about the local area by visiting a local fish farm, going snorkelling or joining a Phuket Elephant Sanctuary tour.

Food and Drink

Top Table

Sit under the shade of the beautiful bodhi tree at Ta Khai.

Dress Code

Add sparkling gems and lustrous pearls by night for Ta Khai to match the glittering sea and stars (Mr Smiths could don a pearl-white shirt, perhaps). Anything goes at the other two...

Hotel restaurant

This ravishing resort has a trio of star-turn restaurants: beachfront Ta Khai, designed in imitation of a traditional village (the buildings are former houses, bought from the locals in exchange for new dwellings). A huge bodhi tree – which has sacred significance for Buddhists – stands guard at the very front of Ta Khai. Breakfast is served at relaxed Red Sauce; the pizza oven and and pasta counter cater to guests’ all-day dining needs (and are sure to go down particularly well with smaller Smiths). Completing the triumvirate, the Shack does what it says on the tin: this casual beachfront joint is designed for laid-back lunches and poolside snacking. Order oysters and fresh fish – barbecued to perfection.

Hotel bar

My, oh Mai (bar): this serene space is impressive by day, and utterly knee-weakening by night, when it’s lit with lamps and flickering candles. Cushions are strewn invitingly for guests to recline on (gracefully or otherwise), cocktail in hand. Every so often, a live band serenades lucky listeners…

Last orders

Breakfast is available between 7am and 11am; Ta Khai closes at 10pm.

Room service

You’ll forget what hunger feels like here, thanks to the 24-hour in-room dining service, which spans all-day breakfast, items from the restaurant menus and an edited, late-night selection available between 10pm and 7am.

Planes

Phuket International Airport is 40 kilometres away; let Smith24 sort your transfers.

Automobiles

The hotel has valet parking and plenty of on-site parking spaces. That said, taxis are fairly cheap and holidays are for relaxing, so don’t feel obliged to come with wheels.

Worth getting out of bed for

Set off on a romantic stroll across the beach and through the hotel’s dreamy tropical gardens. Borrow bikes or try non-motorised watersports; ask the staff to arrange a private island-hopping tour, or get a bird’s-eye view of your surroundings by embarking on a chopper tour. The hotel runs a variety of wellness programmes: pick from one-, three-, five-, seven- or 14-day options – and take part in Thai boxing, body stretch, Tabata workout, abs training, Pilates, morning yoga, meditation, Tai Chi, stand-up paddleboarding, snorkelling, tow-in skimboarding and more. Further afield, explore Phuket Old Town, visit a local fish farm or elephant sanctuary, and admire Chalong Temple. Catch a local Muay Thai boxing show, visit the Phuket Mining Museum, or hop to Koh Rok Island and Similan Islands. Sail away on a luxury yacht cruise along Phuket’s southern coastline to a tiny island, where you will be blessed by monks (yes, really), before sailing to a deserted beach for a champagne picnic lunch. Don’t miss the sunset views from Promthep Caves (the hotel will zip you to the caves and back). NB all this is just a taster – Rosewood Phuket can arrange a dizzyingly diverse array of adventures…

Local restaurants

Head into Phuket town, where a holiday’s worth of edible temptations awaits. Try popular Raya Restaurant (+66 76 218 155) for its crab coconut curry or moo hong: a slow-braised pork dish; try Tu Kab Khao (+66 76 608 888) on Phang Nga Road for Southern Thai flavours (don’t miss the mackerel soup with tamarind and the spicy fish cakes); try Blue Elephant Restaurant for Thai food served in splendour (an opulent mansion, to be precise). Over on Kamala Beach, have a sunset dinner at Café del Mar (+66 63 081 2488); the Bangkok outpost of this Ibiza institution does the family proud.

Local bars

Go for cocktails and dancing-on-sand sessions at Xana Beach Club in Laguna. The club’s lengthy lures include a 35-metre swim-up bar, a private rooftop terrace and a state-of-the-art sound system.

Anonymous review

Every hotel featured is visited personally by members of our team, given the Smith seal of approval, and then anonymously reviewed. As soon as our reviewers have returned from this beachfront hotel in Thailand and unpacked their bikinis and beach shorts, a full account of their eco-conscious getaway will be with you. In the meantime, to whet your wanderlust, here's a quick peek inside Rosewood Phuket

We’d always been told that heaven has pearly gates – but we’re rethinking things after our stay at Rosewood Phuket, which is accessed through monumental wooden doors bedecked with mighty brass handles. Instead of a mythical street paved with gold, Rosewood Phuket’s doors open onto a serene lobby and reception, whose chief attraction is an irresistibly magnetic sea view. You are likely to feel lighter and brighter instantaneously on arrival; you’ll pretty much be levitating by the time you see the spa, bar and restaurants. Instead of admitting Adams and Eves only, Rosewood Phuket makes paradise available to all ages; thankfully, it doesn’t lose a jot of serenity as a consequence. Proving it really is a celestial place, Rosewood Phuket also takes eco-conscious concerns very seriously, using recycled water, solar power and reclaimed materials. Paradise found, indeed.
