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.
