If you’re looking for a stunning boutique hotel, I really can’t see how The Naka Phuket could disappoint.
The only downside would be that it is off the beaten path but for those seeking a more private stay, this is the place to be, plus it’s just a short 10-min hotel shuttle ride from the fun activities and nightlife of Patong. The Naka Hotel is located at the end of a remote road in the luxury enclave of Kamala Bay, an exclusive hideaway on the west coast of Phuket.
The reception is perched atop the villa’s overlooking across the sea; wood, glass concrete, and the outstanding cantilevered design make a flawless first impression. I’d seen photos of the Naka Phuket prior to arrival but nothing can quite interpret the scale of the villas seen from above. All villas are staggered at different heights for privacy and the infinity edge pool seems to flow out facing the Andaman Sea and seriously breathtaking views. The rectangular-shaped villas are all glass with wrap around wooden decks facing the ocean plus an outdoor bathtub and rainwater shower at the back are the added treat.
The main restaurant is just a short walk down some steps and right across the lush front lawn with gorgeous palm trees, which borders a large infinity pool. I must say the view is strikingly beautiful from all vantage points! I personally loved the locally-inspired dishes, such as Pad Thai, from the extensive menu of culinary delights served all day. Engaging service, a delectable menu and an ample wine list to choose from, even the local ones.
I still feel there’s so much to mention but conclude by saying that this is an excellent boutique hotel for those seeking a more private vacation. I promise you will feel rejuvenated, reconnected and ready to tackle the new year. Everything was perfect!
