Sri Panwa, Phuket , Thailand - the perfect hideaway

Sri Panwa, Phuket , Thailand
 About 45km away from Phuket , Thailand
Number of rooms: 52

A cool hideaway with spectucalar views that go on forever
The winding drive is long, forested and punctuated by the call of howler monkeys, which makes touchdown at the main building – a soaring modernist affair – come as something of a jaw-dropper.

It’s a fitting introduction to a hotel that re-sets the bar for lavish treatment and luxurious surroundings. The 50 villas, with private entryways, glassed-in infinity pools and multiple sundecks, cling to the sunrise side of the peninsula edge and are arranged to deliver staggering, uninterrupted views

Pool villas consist of two separate pavilions: one bedroom and one living room/kitchen (a bit superfluous in a hotel known for its food), both with iPod sound systems loaded with requisite Cafe del Mar-type tunes.

Despite all the Thai design and in-room indulgence, the view is the real star of the show. Floor-to-ceiling glass doors make it easy to while a day away just lying in bed, watching boats move toward the small karst islands dotted across the Malacca Strait.
Spa: The multi-level Cool Spa in Majorelle Blue resembles a floating garden more closely than a spa. It’s a palace of relaxation best visited during the heat of the day.
Restuarants:  Baba Dining Lounge, which is probably all that needs to be said. Fiery pad krapao and a rainbow of curry types raise excellent excuses for that third cocktail or beer. 
Best room:  Pool Villas
Best dish: Spicy chicken wings
Design credentials:  black-and-white striped outdoor upholstery, water features , and a cool orange and grey colour scheme
