Tan need topping up? Desperate for a recharge in a Thai paradise? Craving luxurious amenities and a spa to-sigh-for? Yes? Well best get your bot to Phuket’s Cape Panwa-perched swankster, Sri Panwa… quicksticks.
Check out of the daily grind and into one of Sri Panwa’s scattered hilltop villas spanning 1-5 bedrooms and all featuring private infinity pools, Nespresso machines, track-packed iPods, and plenty of space for you to sprawl in blissful peace and quiet.
For yet more divine relaxation, head on up to the sky-high oasis of indulgence that is the lush Cool Spa, where trad massages, facial therapies, yoga and a full spectrum of salon treats will have you all but floating away on cloud nine. After all that rejuvenation, you’ve earned yourself a drink, so beeline to the rooftop Baba’s Nest to sample the dee-lish cocktail menu, taking in a 360 degree Andaman sunset and the jaw-dropping wraparound infinity pool while you’re at it. You’ve sipped, and now its time to sup, and at Sri Panwa choices abound with Baba Soul Food, Pool Club and BBQ just some of the Gordon Ramsay-approved gastronomic choices.
If gazing longingly out to sea is simply not enough, get up close and personal with the big blue on a diving trip, or better yet, charter something fabulously yacht-y to explore those islands in the distance. If you aren’t into taking the plunge, splash the cash instead in Phuket Town, with boutique shopping and artisanal wares to suit every soujourning stylista. Feeling better? We thought so.
