Review: The Pavilions Phuket


Book A Stay

From the bustling life of Bangkok to the serene Buddhist temples, Thailand is a land of stark contrasts. Visitors to this country are as varied as the landscape of this tropical getaway. The tropical jungle gives way to rice paddies on the rural mainland, while rainforest-adorned islands guard over the country’s white sandy coastlines.

Similarly, the visitors are anything but ‘typical,’ as Thailand caters to backpackers, spiritual crusaders, and luxe travelers, seeking to satisfy every hedonistic desire of those with discerning tastes. And when it comes to having high-end fun in the sun, no other province of Thailand does it better than Phuket.

The massive island has been catering to jet setters for the longest time, offering deluxe cuisine, sparkling white beaches, exclusive nightspots, and more. It can get a little overwhelming, especially if you seek intimacy and romance on your holiday. The Pavilions Hotels & Resorts in Phuket offers you a chance to partake in the decadent lifestyle of Phuket while maintaining intimacy that other hotels may have sacrificed.

Wherever you decide to stay, book via our luxury travel concierge. We offer free upgrades, free breakfasts, and free perks at hotels, including Four Seasons, Aman, Belmond, Hyatt, Ritz-Carlton, Marriott, InterContinental, and more. You also get your usual Marriott Bonvoy, Hyatt, Hilton, and other loyalty points and status benefits when you book with our concierge.


Sitting atop one of Phuket’s highest points, the Pavilions Phuket has been offering premium, adults-only, romantic accommodation for ten years.

Style & Character

With a range of high-end villas available, the resort offers the best of both worlds: the excesses of the jet-setter lifestyle and the serenity of an intimate getaway. The resort provides shuttle services to the beach and prompt buggy service to take guests around the property. Choose from Ocean View or Tropical Pool Villas, relax in the Spa & Pool Pavilion, or splurge in the Spa & Pool Penthouse. The Pavilions Phuket has everything you may need to enjoy an idyllic vacation, reconnect with your loved one, and recharge your batteries while basking in the utmost luxury.


The Pavilions Phuket offers a range of exclusive accommodations to suit every need. Further enhancing the privacy feature of the accommodation, the penthouses all boast private infinity pools and outdoor romantic cabanas. The Spa & Pool Penthouses ooze intimacy as they feature romantic details such as outdoor showers, an individual Jacuzzi, and more. With a fully-stocked in-room bar, on par with the selection outside the hotel, you will be hard-pressed to find a reason to leave.

The popular 310 m² Ocean View Pool Villa (pictured above) is not far behind on the privacy factor, boasting private infinity pools so secluded that they allow for a cheeky skinny dip. Allowing you to soak in the gorgeous views of the Layan Beach, while enjoying your sundowner at sunset, no doubt the Ocean View Pool Villas are so popular. They permit in-room spa services, as the spacious bathrooms allow the staff to set up all the equipment in the privacy of your own accommodation.

The 275 m² Spa & Pool Pavilions are as secluded as they are exotic. Located on the site of a former plantation, perched on a hillside, the pavilions are accessible via a funicular. The Spa & Pool Pavilions are ideally appointed to please your inner hermit, boasting private spa rooms and sprawling valley views. Should you tire of overlooking the magnificent ocean outside your window while lounging in your private infinity pool, the rest of the resort awaits you.

Service & Facilities

An adult-only romantic resort means pampering. The Pavilions Phuket accommodates your every wish in this respect. Fitness need not be put aside during your stay and you are welcome to use the spacious, state-of-the-art gym on the premises. If you wish to partake in a more spiritual activity, in-villa yoga sessions can also be arranged. The 400m² two-level Spa & Pool Penthouses are the property’s most luxurious quarters, with their own spa rooms, complete with steam rooms.

As you would expect, the aforementioned in-villa spa services are available upon request. But should you wish to abandon the traditional resort activities in favor of something more educational, why not attend one of the culinary classes the Pavilions resort offers?

Food & Drink

All guests can enjoy the delightful complimentary breakfast at The Plantation Club during their stay, which is a creative mix of popular Thai dishes and Western cuisines. Daily Champagne breakfast is offered here with a selection of both buffet and à la carte dishes, lunch and dinner Thai and international cuisine.

In addition, The Plantation Club allows you to enjoy al fresco dining for lunch and dinner, teasing your senses with the local flavors, made popular all around the world. For those who value tradition above all else, afternoon tea is served on the terrace.

Should beautiful vistas appeal to you more, the 360° Bar & Grill, perched atop this tropical paradise, is the place to be. Arrive in time for sunset to gaze at the flaming sky and sip cocktails, nibbling on tapas. Stay for dinner and savor the delectable tastes of Thai and International cuisines.

Both restaurants provide a sea view. The 360° Bar is open in the evenings and has surround sunset views. Arrive in time for sunset to gaze at the flaming sky and sip cocktails, nibbling on tapas. Stay for dinner and savor the eclectic tapas (both Asian and Western).

The hotel also offers regular in-villa dining as well as special culinary experiences (including candlelight dinners and our signature BBQ in the Buff).

And if all of the above is still not enough, you can enjoy the ultimate luxury experience by hosting your own private barbeque party that the resort will happily arrange for you with sufficient notice. One more reason to stay in your decadent villa for your stay!


When you feel the pull of the outside world, the Pavilions resort is only a quick taxi ride away from the hustle and bustle of the famous Phuket nightlife. So if you are planning a decadent and exclusive getaway with your loved one, look no further than The Pavilions Phuket resort.
