The sunny Phuket is the home to many nice resorts and hotels, from basic to top-notch, from traditional to contemporary, from vibrant and crowdy to calm and serene. One of the most stylish, tranquil oasises near the popular, somewhat hippyish tropical sandy Surin Beach is the Twinpalms Resort.
With its modern, minimalist architecture and design, it’s a unique resort on the island. On the domain there are 97 luxurious and spacious residences, suites and rooms, which counts as a rather small hotel, compared to the huge resorts that are predominant in Phuket’s accommodation offering. Each room is surrounded by palms and features a private terrace facing the main pool with garden view. Twinpalms differentiates itself from others as well by the 21 unique apartments that are designed to lift your spirits with a generous space and private pool. The contemporary tropical design and landscaping incorporate a magical water garden. This place has a totally unhurried and chilled-out ambiance where the only energy you need to expend is lying by the pool or sitting on a stretch of golden tropical sand.
Contemporary and stylish, this privately-owned resort has hip restaurants and bars, beach clubs and a spa, all delivered with thoughtful and attentive service. It’s also part of the selection of Small Luxury Hotels.
Beach life 2.0
The gorgeous clear water in Surin Beach is perfect for swimming and sunbathing. And for the guests’ comfort and convenience, Twinpalms offers a ‘beach butler’, who will go with the guests to the beach and set up their beach mats and oversized towels. With tons a food stalls next to Surin beach you’re sure to enjoy a tasty meal on your beach trip as well.
Although Twinpalms Phuket is located just metres away from Surin beach, they also offer their guests a free shuttle service to other nearby beaches, where they also manage several beach clubs and restaurants.
At Catch Beach Club (Bang Tao Beach) you can enjoy the comfort of sun-chairs and umbrellas, and when the night falls, famous DJ’s will host a pleasant party. The HQ Beach Lounge (Kamala Beach) is all about the splendid seaside experiences in chic simplicity and the celebration of your wonderful company with cocktails, wines and eclectic soul music. At Palm Seaside restaurant you’re sure to dine in style. Be it for a late business lunch or for a romantic dinner, the setting, service and style are perfect to enjoy the feeling of dining by the sea.
So much more than a bedroom
All rooms at the Twinpalms resort are unique and top-class, but the penthouses are simply from another league. Located in a separate area of the domain, the penthouses feature over 230 m² of triplex living space and a private rooftop equipped with a 9×3 m infinity pool. Not even to mention the list of features and services that are also included in the stay at the penthouse.
The experience of the personal check-in with your private host is definitely worthwhile. So compliments to our butler Pek. Personalized really means made-to-measure at Twinpalms, as you can choose the scent in your apartment, the kind of flowers that will be brought to your room on a daily basis and the pillow that suits your sleep best.
As we also celebrated our honeymoon during this trip, the Twinpalms team was kind enough to decorate the room with a vase of red roses, a bathtub filled with rose petals, a bottle of sparkling wine and some snacks. So even the honeymoon decoration was very stylish and contemporary here, in contrast to the towels in swan formations that are commonly presented to newlyweds in other places.
Amongst the features of the penthouse we’d like to highlight the innovative audio and visual facilities – like two big LED TV’s with an extensive offering of recent movies, a stereo and bluetooth connection and atmospheric lighting – Nespresso coffee and the daily afternoon buffet offering fresh fruits.
So much to do or just do nothing at all
It’s hard to get bored at the Twinpalms resort as there is so much to do. However it’s just as tempting to do nothing at all and to just enjoy the room and the accommodation. The number one activity at Twinpalms is in any case relaxing at the pool, where the pool butler will provide you with fresh and luxurious beach towels.
For guests who want a little more action, a well-equipped gym is available, as well as a tour office that facilitates nice activities like day trips to the main sights and highlights of the island, yachting and helicopter flights. More tranquil things to do are the treatments at the spa, reading books and magazines at the library or shopping for clothes and gadgets at the souvenir shop and hotel boutique store.
For those who consider a tropical break full of sunshine, palmtrees, tropical swimming pools and sandy beaches, and are at the same time hooked to contemporary design, the highest comfort levels and a touch of fancy, vibrant yet serene vacation life, the Twinpalms Resort in Phuket is a perfect pick. We highly recommend a stay in the penthouse with its private pool.
