What we love
Ocean front dining at Trisara Seafood is just divine
Setting the scene
Often cast as Phuket's most luxurious and private pool villa resort, Trisara resort is quietly nestled in the hillside of Phuket's beautiful north-west coastline, embraced by tropical vegetation and exotic gardens.
Set between two private headlands in twenty-one hectares, you certainly have the impression of being at one with nature - with only the shoreline, ocean and horizon for company, you're in your own world. Furthermore, the ocean view is simply awe-inspiring; Trisara resort is truly blessed with the most spectacular year-round sunsets.
The attention to detail is paramount at Trisara resort, ensuring that all the accommodation combines a luxurious, yet contemporary Thai style interior. Each has its own teak sundeck and stunning natural grey marble infinity pool which overflows directly towards a sensational Andaman Sea view.
Settled high above the beach, the resort comprises of an amazing collection of one to six-bedroom Ocean Front and Ocean View Pool Villas, Suites and Residences.
The larger residences also include a kitchen, a living pavilion and dedicated staff and cooks, making it perfect for families and larger groups.
The Tisara Seafood restaurant has the fortuitous reputation of being is one of the best on Phuket. Its timeless decor and ambient-mood, sits beautifully with the mesmerising waterfall to one side of the room and a leafy, open, palm-shaded deck leading out to the beach. The chef himself hand-picks the freshest seafood from the best Phuket markets, along with some of the finest ingredients flown in from all across the Mediterranean.
For a more relaxed beach vibe, The Deck serves a blend of ultra-fresh Thai and international food. Sit back and meditate on the wonderful experiences shared under the leafy palms, dining on simple fresh fruits de mer.
A popular meal with guests and locals residents alike, is the Trisara Sunday Brunch - so much so, that it has become iconic amongst the locals as a 'must-do-experience' on Phuket. Expect selections of fresh seafood, petite fours and sumptuous desserts with the soft hum of live jazz music floating gently in the background.
A must while staying at the resort, is a visit to the Trisara Spa. Set on the hillside above the pool villas, it offers private treatment suites with stunning sea views opening out to breezy pavilions and tropical gardens. Guests can indulge themselves with a number of massages and treatments, including the signature 'Royal Trisara' - a six-hand massage undertaken by three therapists!
Located below the spa is the fully-equipped gym, containing a selection of weights, cardio machines and exercise equipment. There are also the services of a qualified personal trainer available, should you wish some one-on-one session training, or for the more energetic, why not try the Thai Boxing lessons!
Especially for the younger guests staying at Trisara resort, there is a fully supervised children's club - Trisara Kids. With separate areas for children under and over eight (children under four need to be accompanied by a parent or guardian), during their time at the club children can participate in a number of activities including creative card making, cupcake baking and even Thai dancing.
