The Surin – Make this your ultimate luxury hideaway

Unveiling Luxury: The Surin Experience

Nestled along the pristine shores of Pansea Beach, Phuket, The Surin emerges as a secluded haven of luxury. Accessed through a scenic entrance, shared with Amanpuri, this near-private stretch of boulder-strewn white sands sets the stage for an unparalleled luxury travel experience.

After a wearying journey, the delicate signature scent of frangipani enveloping The Surin’s ambience greeted us. Firstly we were welcomed by the gracious front-of-house team, refreshing lemongrass tea was offered, and frangipani garlands adorned us, a perfect greeting after our lengthy flight.

Architectural Harmony: The Surin’s Fusion of Tradition and Modernity

American architect Edward Tuttle seamlessly blended local materials and traditional Thai designs with modern functionality at The Surin Phuket. Above all, adorning all of its roofs are sustainable cedar shingles, creating geometric forms that strikingly contrast with the naturally irregular shapes of the surrounding tropical palms, shrubs, and rocks.

Designed around grand temple-like open-air pavilions cascading down the hillside, The Surin offers breathtaking views of the Andaman Sea. Amidst the coconut-covered hillside, 102 white cottages are scattered at varying levels, interconnected by charming staircases and elevated walkways. While picturesque, it’s worth noting that navigating these paths may pose a challenge for some. So, the resort’s club car service is best utilised.

Plenty of activities await, from an expansive hexagonal-shaped swimming pool and tennis courts to a watersports center offering complimentary kayaks, catamarans, body boards, and snorkeling gear. For a tranquil escape, beachside yoga classes beckon three mornings a week, complemented by a serene and reasonably-priced spa.

The villas showcase a fusion of Shaker-meets-Siam aesthetics, featuring fresh white walls, sliding doors, and cool grey marble floors. While identically appointed, room categories differ based on location, with those closer to the beach commanding a premium. Though most rooms lack bathtubs, each villa boasts gardens, small sunbathing decks, and ample lounging space.

Indulge in Culinary Bliss: Dining Experiences at The Surin

Start your day with a delightful breakfast buffet at the Sunset Café. Offering a spread of fruits, pastries, Thai noodles, freshly made eggs, and gluten-free options. Besides, overlooking the pool and garden, this culinary haven transitions to serving classic hotel fare like Caesar salad, club sandwiches, and pizza throughout the day. For a taste of Thai cuisine, head to the glass-encased Lomtalay. While a seasonal seafood restaurant graces the beach from October to May.

The Surin stands as an exquisite retreat, embodying the essence of luxury travel, offering an escape where every moment is infused with tranquility, elegance, and unparalleled beauty.
