Amanpuri embodies the inner spirit of the Thai culture while allowing nature to reign supreme. The natural beauty combined with sincere warmth and a genuine soul allows for complete rejuvenation.
Amanpuri translated in Sanskrit as place of peace was opened in 1988, the first born to the Aman ‘family’. This tranquil prodigy has pride of place on Phuket in a secluded natural coconut grove on a peninsula leading down to a soft, crescent shaped beach overlooking a mesmerizing turquoise Andaman Sea. Amanpuri continues to evolve with a peaceful purity, which is reflected in its gracious service, and the sympathetic construction of its pavilions, villas, and stylish midnight blue pools.
pavilions & villas
The sense of ‘belonging’ while staying at Amanpuri is, in part, due to the authentic and sympathetically conceived architecture exposing swooping multi-tiered roof-lines, understated, but deeply comfortable, locally inspired, air-conditioned interiors, outside salas or private dining decks. These are connected by a series of elevated walkways, which lead to the cool and expansive reception area, the long exotic slate-blue pool, reflecting statuesque palms and tropical skies, and the sweeping stone steps down to the beach. The gentle fragrance of the ubiquitous frangipani flower gently permeates the soft sea air.
