Rosewood Phuket opens today, nestled along 600 meters of one of the last remaining secluded beaches on the island, on Emerald Bay in south-western Phuket.
Its debut marks not only the first south-east Asia resort for ultra-luxury Rosewood Hotels & Resorts, but the unveiling of Asaya, Rosewood’s new wellness concept.
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 a short drive away.
Inspired by the serenity and sophistication of luxurious beachside estates, the resort 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,” said Sonia Cheng, chief executive officer of Rosewood Hotel Group.
“We are also thrilled that guests will experience our first Asaya, an innovative concept in holistic and integrative wellness journeys.”
Melbourne-based BAR Studio has applied its refined aesthetics to the resort’s design to celebrate its diverse range of landscapes.
Each sea-facing, residential-style room features interiors that blend east and west, contemporary and traditional.
Their expansive garden terraces are private sanctuaries of relaxed outdoor seating, daybed, infinity pool and Andaman Sea views.
The 130-square-meter Ocean View Pool Pavilions feature spacious bedroom and living room areas and an exterior courtyard with deep soaking bathtub and rain shower.
The 796-square-meter Ocean House comprises a master bedroom, twin bedroom, separate living and dining rooms and a lush oasis of garden courtyards and shady terraces, and guests can choose a plunge in their private infinity pool or taking a few short steps to the warm, crystal-clear waters of Emerald Bay.
Asaya is designed to provide a unique opportunity for guests to discover their own true path to wellness.
At Wellness Ateliers upon arrival, experts create bespoke experiences for guests and help them choose organic, home-grown herbs and ingredients to be used in tailored treatments.
Six suites include one signature wellness suite which caters to small groups of friends with dedicated treatment areas, outdoor relaxation space and Watsu pool.
