It’s a challenge to find an unspoilt paradise in Phuket’s well-trodden beaches, which is probably why Akaryn Hotel Group has created its own. Akyra Beach Club, the latest addition to the group’s portfolio, sets itself apart as a resort for those who prefer understated luxury over flashy hedonism. Located on Natai beach, one of Phuket’s less visited beaches, it sits among multi-million-dollar private estates and peaceful local fishing communities, away from tourist traps and bars.
The resort offers a gamut of waterfront dining and entertainment options. At the Beach Club Bar & Grill, enjoy wood-fired pizzas and fresh seafood while relaxing in a cabana by the pool. This is also where the Sunday Brunch, set to be the must-try experience for all foodie visitors to Phuket, takes place. At Upper Deck, enjoy panoramic views of the Andaman sea while savouring the hotel’s breakfast buffet spread or a private dining experience. A spa and fully equipped gym are also a part of the hotel’s facilities. For a change in scene, Aleenta Phuket Resort & Spa, a sister property also by Akaryn Hotel Group is just a short stroll away, down the same beach.
With just 42 rooms and 17 stand-alone villas, the resort promises an exclusive experience that will have every guest feeling like he has a little slice of paradise all to himself. The Two Bedroom Beachfront Villa comes complete with a living room, jacuzzi and private gazebo. Located just steps from the coastline, guests here will wake up to unblocked views of the sea right outside their bedroom.
