[Phuket] Review: Trisara - Luxury Private Pool Villa Resort
Last year I received a 2-nights stay at the luxurious Trisara Resort in Phuket from Veuve Clicquot and finally redeemed my voucher last week! Trisara is best known for its exclusivity as all of its villas and suites have their own private pool with panoramic ocean views. Round-trip airport transfers were included and after we were picked up in a SUV, our journey took only 15 minutes from the airport to the resort. The check-in process was swift and we were given a quick orientation of the property in a buggy before being dropped off at our villa. The room type we stayed in was the Ocean View Pool Villa with ample space for the two of us at 240 square meters!
Our villa was surrounded by plenty of trees and plants on both sides which provided a sense of privacy even though the structures are pretty well spaced-out in the first space. Beyond the wooden entrance from the road, it was only a short walk and a few steps down to the actual villa itself.
The first thing we saw when we entered the villa was our king-sized bed which was right in the middle of the room. The bed was really comfortable and even came with a pillow menu.
On one side of the bed was a work desk and the other a dining table with sofa chairs.
The deck had a few sunbeds and a wooden table for outdoor dining - although they did look a bit run-down.
I was most excited about the private infinity pool and in most of the pictures I saw online, the pool was always perpendicular to the villa so when I saw that my pool was horizontal, I was a bit disappointed as it looked smaller than expected. I mean it's actually pretty nice for a quick dip and for pictures but probably a bit small if you want to do laps.
Everyday we were provided with fresh fruits which were also free for us to enjoy.
I counted at least 3 separate closets and in one of them, I found a beach bag for our use around the resort and a stone structure in lieu of a Do Not Disturb sign - we were supposed to place the stone angel outside of our door so housekeeping will know not to come in.
The property was pretty spread out and while we could have called a buggy to drive us around, it was still walkable so we walked down to the restaurants everyday.
On the way to the restaurants, we passed by the main pool and private beach of the resort. The main pool was quite long and perfect for laps but it was also pretty deep even at its most shallow ends. The service was very prompt though - the minute we laid our stuff down on one of the beach chairs, the staff brought over iced cold water and towels immediately.
The resort has two main restaurants - PRU and Seafood at Trisara. PRU is the new farm-to-table fine dining restaurant while Seafood is inspired by authentic Thai ‘Mama’ recipes passed through the generations.
We had dinner at Seafood first and we were quite impressed with the food so we decided to go back for dinner again for the second night. The restaurant had set menus but we opted for a la carte instead for more choices. Some of our favorite dishes included fresh squid cooked in squid ink sauce and Panang curry.
The breakfast buffet was also served at Seafood with a comprehensive spread including pastries, cereal, fresh juices, yogurt and even fresh honeycomb. There's also a made-to-order menu with Western, Thai and Chinese breakfast which was unlimited - meaning we can order as many dishes as we wanted!
