Trisara, in Sanskrit 'The Third Garden in Heaven', is a luxurious resort on the north-west coast of Phuket Island. Set in tropical forest and exotic gardens, the 39 spacious pool villas face out to the pristine beaches and a quiet bay of the Andaman Sea. The one-bed pool villas occupy a 240 sq metre garden featuring a 10-metre ocean-facing infinity pool, teak dining and sunning decks, and an outdoor private shower. Finished to an impeccably high standard of fittings and furnishing, wireless high-speed internet is complimentary, as are daily fresh tropical fruits, home-made chocolate truffles, freshly baked cookies, gourmet coffee and teas.
Full beach services and non-motorised water sports, tennis and a fully equipped gymnasium are on offer for those feeling more active, or relax at the Trisara Spa. Set on the hillside above the pool villas, the spa offers six private treatment suites with a steam room and large open terrace. Treatments include body wraps, scrubs, facials and a wide selection of massages, including the signature 'Royal Trisara', a six-hand massage by three therapists. Yoga and meditation are a specialty, with the seafront yoga and meditation sala a haven of tranquility on the water's edge.
The Triasara Seafood offers sophisticated oceanfront dining, with an outdoor beachfront terrace under the palms and a separate interior dining room. Further dining options include the seafront Deck restaurant, a bar, beachfront and private poolside barbecue, and the popular Trisara Sunday Brunch, with fresh seafood, tapas, petits fours and desserts all served to the sound of live jazz.
