Injecting sophistication into Phuket’s west coast, the Twinpalms is a stylish hideaway located just metres from Surin Beach. The resort offers pared-back Asian luxury, from the impressive water garden with large swimming pool to its 97 rooms and suites, hidden amid swaying palms.

Founded by French cosmetic brand Institute Esthederm Paris, the Sun Spa Esthederm specialises in treatments for skin exposed to tropical weather conditions.

The spa’s signature treatments include the Cellular Lift ‘Qi Gong’ facial, using warmed metal and cold crystal balls to cleanse the face, resulting in toned, firmer and better-protected skin with reduced fine lines and wrinkles. The detox bath, meanwhile, helps pull toxins from the body while providing minerals to support the body’s natural detox system and overall health.

For guests wanting to work up a sweat, Twinpalms offers a state-of-the-art gym, while swimmers can get their fix at the 24/7 pool. There’s also morning meditation, outdoor yoga and kickboxing to sign up to.

Not to be missed is a day on Surin Beach. A short walk from the retreat, its golden sands, clear waters and sparse crowds make it a tempting stretch for beach-lovers. And to make sure guests aren’t slumming it, beach butlers are on hand with luxury mats and coolers.

Beyond the resort, there’s the Giant Buddha and Chalong Temple, as well as Phuket Old Town and Naka weekend market. But for an alluring water-bound experience, Twinpalms can organise charters on spacious yachts — an enchanting way to explore this captivating coastline and its dramatic limestone cliffs, white-sand beaches and aquamarine waters. Alternatively, a sea trip with Andaman Cruises takes guests on an adventure into the vibrant marine playground of Phuket and beyond.

Back at base, guests can dine from a choice of four distinctive and popular restaurants. A prime spot for culinary travellers, Oriental Spoon Grill & Bar dishes up a Thai/Western fusion menu, while the 20-seat Wine Room has more than 100 labels and 3,000 bottles to choose from.
