Perched atop breathtaking Cape Panwa on the south-eastern tip of Phuket, Sri Panwa is a study in effortless cool. The seven suites and 45 luxury villas " plus the recent addition of 20 suites and ten penthouses in their new Habita complex - are scattered throughout 40 acres of tropical forest. No matter which one you choose, you'll have panoramic views of the Andaman Sea and neighbouring islands, and your own forest-fringed infinity pool wrapping around the glass-walled bedroom. Rooms at Sri Panwa also have their own steam rooms, spa baths, personal butlers and customized playlists, making it extremely difficult to ever leave them. 033_Luxury Villa 017 Family Suite 213_Baba Poolclub But leave you should, because the private beach awaits. As do treatments at the Cool Spa " a green tea body scrub, Thai herbal compress and deep tissue massage, perhaps? For those wanting a little more activity there are two tennis courts, a gym, yoga, pilates and Thai boxing classes, kayaks and cooking classes. You can organize one of Sri Panwa's private cars to take you out to explore the colonial architecture and chic boutiques of Old Phuket Town, or head out for the day on a longtail boat or luxury private yacht. Floating between jungle-clad karst formations in the glittering ocean, stopping off for swimming, snorkelling and kayaking, is the ultimate day in Thai paradise. 301_Cool Spa Sri panwa Cool Spa 2 However you choose to spend your day, though, it should absolutely end with sunset cocktails at Sri Panwa's rooftop bar Baba Nest, set on a platform high above the resort with 360-degree ocean views. One or three of their sake mojitos might help you decide which of their seven restaurants you'll dine in, including Japanese, Chinese and Thai. We highly recommend the latter at Baba Soul Food, where the menu could include stir-fried Andaman crab with lime, chili and soy, or a spicy green mango salad with a zesty citrus dressing. Then all that will be left to do will be to amble back to your villa for a dip in your private pool under an upturned salt shaker of stars. 220_ Baba Poolclub 204_Baba Soul Food 246_Baba Nest From AUD$400 per night for a one bedroom pool suite.
