Sunshine sparkles across a vista of turquoise and sapphire. Sand massages the soles of the feet. Graceful sails billow across the horizon while sleepy yachts moor in the shallows. This is a landscape of uncompromised beauty. Where the only sound to be heard is the waves lapping against the shore. Delightfully secluded. Vibrantly exclusive. This is a place where passions are awakened and adventures begin.

Poised above the shores of Phuket’s finest swimming beach, The Royal Phuket Yacht Club has a location and reputation that befits no other. An icon of opulence, the hotel has won numerous awards including the most recently appointed “World’s Best Leisure Hotel” by Condé Nast Traveller and “Thailand’s Leading Resort” at the 13th World Travel Awards 2006.

History Originally born as the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in 1987 – and the first luxury hotel ever to be built on Phuket – it has played host to an impressive list of royalty and celebrities in its 20 year lifespan. Now, under operation as The Royal Puravarna Phuket Yacht Club, Puravarna breathes new life into this island treasure, blending state-of-the-art technology with artful refurbishment in all 110 guest rooms. Located on the Southwestern tip of the island overlooking the pristine, unspoiled beach of Nai Harn and Prompthep cape, each guest room has a spacious patio with stunning ocean view.
