Lapped by the warm waters of the Andaman Sea, the property sits on the northern shore of Phuket where it merges into a backdrop of lush rainforest. Phuket’s former glory as a tin mining centre is reflected in the quirky design. Accommodation include elegantly appointed Suites and Pool Suites; eight Pool Villas offer the epitome of luxury living. Multifarious dining options range from traditional Thai specialities at Black Ginger – reached by boat – to themed buffets at the Tin Mine. There is also a snooker bar and poolside café. Ascend the lantern-lit steps to the nest-like Coqoon spa hidden amongst the Banyan trees, or soak up the sun on the easily accessible beach. Two of the resort’s three swimming pools are adult only; further attractions include a kids’ club and Thai cooking school.
Prices include flights, 7 nights accommodation with breakfast and private transfers. Room upgrades available.

Striking, bold and laced with historic detail, the resort was designed by architect Bill Bensley, known for infusing properties with soul and surprises. At Coqoon Spa, Bensley takes the concept of being cocooned rather literally with the Nest, an impressive wicker structure hung from a giant banyan tree.
At sunrise, for a spiritual start to the day, cycle down to the local 200 year old temple and join the monks as they perform their morning rituals. At sunset, head to the markets to discover the hubs as daylight dims and vendors, farmers and local chefs converge under city lights.

Thailand is generally very hot and humid with distinct dry and rainy seasons. The best time to visit most resorts, including Phuket, Krabi, Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai, is from November to March, with the exception of Koh Samui which is best visited from December to August. However, with ever-changing weather patterns and excellent offers, it is well worth considering a holiday during the shoulder seasons
