Named by Conde Nast Traveler in 2005 as one of the world's best places to stay, the 27 acre JW Marriott Phuket Resort and Spa on Thailand's Mai Khao Beach offers the pampering of exotic spa treatments, the class of riding to the airport in Mercedes sedans, and the adrenalin surges of outdoor adventure. Fifteen kilometers from Phuket (pronounced "poo ket") on the Andaman Sea, thrill seekers can sun themselves on the beach and indulge in jungle and elephant trekking, golf, hiking, sailing, snorkeling, scuba diving, mountain biking, and island reef diving. The low, sweeping design of the resort, with its rock walls, reflection ponds, water features and ornate roofing, presents the ambience of a mythic palace. Once inside, guests can relax by the outdoor pool, where staff members constantly refill glasses with ice water, hand out cold towels every hour, and cool down guests with chilled pineapple wedges. Sheer indulgence here translates to the Mandara Spa's massages, herbal and seaweed wraps, salt scrubs, aromatherapy and fresh water baths. Afterwards, guests can enjoy sushi and sashimi creations at the Kabuki Bar, buffets at the Marriott Caf, seafood at the seaside Sala Rim Talay, Siam Deli's gourmet delicacies, Cucina's Italian cuisine or 24 hour room service. Other perks include babysitting services, children's activity center, business center, shopping arcade, and shuttles to attractions. This three story Thai resort features 246 guestrooms and 13 suites with views of the resort or Andaman Sea from private balconies. Amenities include polished wooden floors, rich silk fabrics, Thai meditation platforms, cable/satellite TVs, high speed Internet access, large soaking tubs, bathrobes, refrigerators and minibars. The JW Marriott Resort and Spa presents an ideal sanctuary of romance, seclusion, tranquility and adventure for couples and families.
