Phuket City, on Phuket Island, is the capital of Thailand’s Phuket Province. In the Old Town, Thalang Road is lined with colourful 19th-century shop houses and Sino-Portuguese buildings. Built in 1903 by a wealthy tin merchant, Baan Chinpracha mansion has Italian floor tiles, shuttered windows and antique furniture. Set in a 1930s manor, the Thai Hua Museum has exhibits on Phuket’s culture and history.
Stunning white beaches, excellent seafood restaurants, amazing sunsets and fabulous shopping – PPL @ Baan Puri has it all. Located between the traditional fishing community at Bantao beach and the famous Surin beach, this is an ideal resort to combine action with relaxation.
It’s a private oasis of tropical paradise, but still only a short distance from all the major attractions that Phuket has to offer. The spacious and luxurious rooms offer superb modern conveniences, like marble or granite finishes in the kitchens and bathrooms, large walk-in showers and classy, comfortable furnishings. The beautiful 40m swimming pool is the resort’s centrepiece, stretching from one side of the building to the other. Don’t just sit on your balcony looking at it! Go enjoy it and stay right there at poolside for a delicious meal or chilled drink. Or go indoors to treat your taste buds to the impeccable restaurant offering both Western and Thai cuisine. The five-star gym helps keep you fit and trim, and the sauna, steam room and whirlpool serve as an ideal après -workout. A pool table, dartboard and large flat-screen TV ensure sports enthusiasts are well catered for.
Horse-riding in the surf, elephant riding through the lush tropical forests, surfing off the west coast before breakfast, or just enjoying a Thai massage on the beach are just some of the many activities right on your doorstep.
