It seems that newer is not only better, but it also raises the hip quotient! Such is the latest hotel scene in Thailand. Gone are the days when large-scale hotel development would plant yet another concrete high rise with little personality, of the international chain genre. Today, everyone is opting for “small is beautiful”. Translated into boutique properties at a human scale offering personalized service, all wrapped in an exquisitely designed resort that is in touch with the nature’s precarious resources. Hence more eco-conscious. The new Vijitt Resort in Phuket best exemplifies this new approach.
Welcome to The Vijitt Resort Phuket, an all villa-style resort hotel situated on absolute beachfront land on the idyllic Island of Phuket. A resort-style hotel that caters to those seeking a unique stay experience.
The 92 villas include 3 Two-Bedroom Pool Villas, 13 Prime Pool Villas, 72 Deluxe Villas and for the ultimate luxury 4 beachfront Vijitt Pool Villas. With the range of villas available, honeymooners, couples and families with children will certainly enjoy their visit. And a highlight of a stay at Vijitt is certainly the exquisite V Spa that offers a range of holistic treatments that Thailand is renowned for.
The resort features 92 spacious stand alone villas strategically placed among the gently sloping forested land, they enjoy stunning sea views and at the same time privacy.
The décor is clean and uncluttered offering luxurious teak wood finishes and a strong sense of Southern Thai architecture and contemporary design throughout, from the wood tile roofs to the use of coconut and bamboo in the finishes.
The most interesting aspect of the resort is probably Baan Vijitt (Vijitt House), a vintage Sino-Portuguese style house, which was the original Vijitt family weekend home, now used as the resort’s traditional dining experience with a contemporary twist offering traditional Thai food with a focus on regional specialties.
