Rosewood's first ultra-luxury resort in Southeast Asia, the Rosewood Phuket occupies 43 acres and 2,000 feet of shoreline along one of Phuket's last remaining secluded beaches. It has 71 pool pavilions and villas -- each of which offers sea-facing, residential-style accommodations and a personal garden terrace -- as well as a 24-hour fitness center; an organic beachside infinity pool; four onsite restaurants; and Asaya, Rosewood's new "holistic wellness concept" that offers spa treatments, a Watsu pool, and fitness and lifestyle experiences such as body stretching, Pilates, personal training, high-intensity interval training, yoga, and meditation.

For meetings and events, there's The Pavilion, a residential-style event venue that includes The Glass House, a 2,600-square-foot indoor space offering panoramic water views; The Garden & Beach Lawn, an adjacent outdoor space for groups of up to 250; and The Courtyard, an enclosed and shaded outdoor space for private dinners.

"Our resort opens a window to a unique Phuket experience in this very special setting, be it a romantic getaway or family and friends holiday, a once-in-lifetime celebration, or a journey to discover the hidden natural wonders of the island," said Andrew Turner, managing director of Rosewood Phuket.

Speaking of the island's natural wonders: To protect them, the resort has a significant focus on sustainability. Eco-friendly features include a rainwater harvesting system that supplies the resort's entire water supply, a solar renewable energy system that is the largest of any hotel in Phuket, and landscaped roofs that keep the property naturally cooler. Plus, there's also a resort-sponsored coral reef restoration project underway in adjacent Emerald Bay.

Concluded Rosewood Hotel Group CEO Sonia Cheng, "In design, art, cuisine, and most especially in gracious service synonymous with Thai culture, at Rosewood Phuket our brand's 'A Sense of Place' philosophy has found a rich context in which to flourish."
