Andara Resort and Villas, Phuket, Kamala Beach, Phuket $$$$
From the editors of Condé Nast Traveler:It's tempting to want to veg inside one's cozy suite at this hillside resort on Phuket's Kamala Bay. There's the wicked 52-inch LCD television in your living room, for one. Other in-room gadgetry is equally generous, with a second, 46-inch TV in the bedroom and a Bose stereo and speakers in every room, while an exceptional kitchen comes outfitted with a shiny array of appliances, including a Gaggia espresso maker. The 37 antique-filled suites are also bedecked in warm, polished wood, plenty of cushions, and beds that are arguably Phuket's plushest. Room category configurations here are unusual: Opt to upgrade from the standard suite and another door of these three-bedroom units is unlocked for one's use. The black-bottom infinity pool attracts an array of beautiful bodies, and the poolside restaurant, Silk, was already a local favorite when it moved here; stick to Thai classics and avoid the uninspired Western dishes. While not on the beach, the hotel does have a private beach club on the public sand and a shuttle to ferry guests (party central Patong Beach is also close by). Others will prefer to hop aboard the 92-foot air-conditioned yacht that cruises around Phang Nga Bay, Phi Phi Island, and the Similan Islands. 2010 Hot List
Which room to book: The standard one-bedroom Terrace Suite comes with plenty of mod cons.Subscribe now to Condé Nast Traveler for just $1 an issue! ›
