When visiting Thailand, I spent five days in Phuket at the Naka Phuket Resort, which was the perfect contrast from the noisy streets of Bangkok and the main streets of Phuket. The resort is located on a secluded hill facing a rocky beach front, where the crowded beach of Patong can be seen in the distance.
Designed by the internationally acclaimed Thai architect, Duangrit Bunnag, with the simplistic steel-framed matchbox villas, floor to ceiling wraparound walls of glass, cantilevering out from the mountainside, and bedrooms hanging between 6ft and 20ft above the ground below guests enjoy a sense of floating mid-air.
Not to mention, the service was impeccable with free shuttles to Patong Beach, fast room service, basically, anything we needed was provided promptly. Even when I forgot my cash deposit at the resort on the last day (yikes!), they called to inform me and arranged for someone to meet me at the airport to return the deposit.
