Indigo Pearl Hotel Phuket, Thailand

Indigo Pearl Hotel Phuket is best described as a flirtation with bold luxury. Set against a backdrop of dense rainforest filled with rare wildlife, Indigo Pearl unfolds along Phuket's sheltered northern shore with uninterrupted views of the Andaman Sea. This seductive setting of lush plantation tantalizes your senses with silvery-blue palms, fragrant plumbago, sword-like mother-in-law's tongue plants and splashes of scarlet and gold bird-of-paradise.

Accommodations envelope luxury and warmth, infusing the rawness of timber and brass rivets juxtaposed with the soothing sway of palms and exotic flora. Choose privacy with a pool villa, choose an ode to design with one of the Pearl Shell suites or choose ultimate luxury with the Bensley Suite.

Indigo Pearl’s dining pays homage to Thai delicacies with presentations of fresh seafood, tender grilled cuts, exotic cocktails and New World wines – all in unique settings of architectural marvel, visionary design and hypnotic surrounds.

Recreation options afford you the freedom to let loose, to explore and to discover. Take advantage of both the resort’s facilities, including three unique pools, and those of nature, with its glittering waters, tropical jungles and the treasures of the depths of the ocean. Tee off on one of the island's award-winning golf greens just minutes from the resort. Take refuge at the resort's diving facilities and the riches of the Andaman. Embrace holistic therapies, from massages to facials to manicures, which are given using custom-made aromatherapy oils and scrubs made with natural, indigenous ingredients such as its signature ground pearls at IN-DI-GO Spa. Or take up an authentic Thai cooking, floral or language class or Thai kickboxing. This resort is truly an opportunity to embrace the culture and charms of Thailand.

PEARLS, PEARLS, PEARLS, PEARLS...PEARLS We Do Adore! Since ancient times, the pearl has been a symbol of unblemished perfection. It is the oldest known gem, and for centuries it was considered the most valuable. A fragment of the oldest known pearl jewelry, found in the sarcophagus (a stone coffin) of a Persian princess who died in 520 BC, is displayed in the Louvre in Paris, the city of love.

Every trip down the aisle begins with a proposal. And what better way to do it than with a pearl and diamond bauble.

The date is set and the perfect venue selected. Now it is time to send out the invitations.

Complement your ceremony with a pearl-infused bouquet. P.S. Don’t forget your groom.

After the I Do’s, wow your guests with a space that keeps them in awe the entire evening.

Let GIRLS IN PEARLS EVENTS design your custom invitations, create bold flower statements and transform your venue in a way that will make a great first and lasting impression on your guests.

Keep the mood festive and the libations flowing by presenting a signature drink. Try the Passion Pearls Cocktail.

1 1/2 oz rum
1 1/2 oz passion fruit vodka
1/2 oz triple sec
1/2 oz lemon juice
2 dashes Angostura aromatic bitters

Pour the ingredients into a cocktail shaker with ice cubes.
Shake well.
Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.

NOTE: There are a few companies who are producing passion fruit vodka, including SKYY, Smirnoff and 42 Below (not available in the US yet) and it is becoming easier to find. Otherwise, get a mixologist or bar tender to infuse a unique, flavorful blend for you.

Further paying homage to the pearl, serve your guests oysters prepared three or more ways as hors d'oeuvres or as part of the main meal.

Now for the second biggest attraction of the day (only second to the bride)...

Enlist the expertise of a master confectioner, such as Sweet Delights,

No one should ever leave a grand fete empty handed. Your guests’ parting gift should reflect your personal styles or personalities and must be memorable. A bottle of wine and classic stopper makes your day unforgettable.

Every great night must come to an end. Make your exit as grand as your entrance.

Mansory Bentley Continental GT Pearl White

If you are more of a traditional girl, your exit strategy should include a vintage Rolls Royce.

Live and Love...Fabulously.
