New to the Spabreaks.com collection, the Kalima Resort and Spa sits on a hillside in Phuket, wistfully looking out over an azure sea and within easy reach of Patong Beach. It is the stuff that wanderlust fantasies are made of; romantic suites and decadent villas providing the array of accommodation, depending on what you’re after. If you’re really going for it, then opt for the one with a private infinity pool.
Cool and contemporary style is the essence of this place, but happily it doesn’t detract from what is unarguably a spectacular natural environment as well. After all, along with its full moon parties and backpackers, Thailand’s reputation for travel stems from its welcoming culture, white-sand beaches, jungles, ancient ruins and Buddhist temples.
Key to the experience in Thailand is indulging in the food and drink;what would a holiday be without sipping cocktails in the evening sun? “The thing I love most about Thailand is Thai food,” comments Lonely Planet, who extol the virtues of the sensory experience that is Thailand, providing no more incentive to take the opportunity to travel around the surrounding area and experience the history and culture that abound.
Back at the hotel meanwhile, there is every reason to simply treat your holiday here as a chance to completely unwind. There’s a pool, and even a bar IN the pool, an artificial beach, mini golf and a fully equipped fitness centre. The Busaba Spa meanwhile, aims to capture the essence of Phuket, named after a heroine of historic local fiction and where each of the treatment rooms is named after a scented flower.
Completing the experience, if anywhere is going to do spa treatments with extra authentic flair, it’s Thailand. Bringing aromatic Thai herbs and marine essences into your therapies and using 100% natural ingredients in their face and body treatments, Kalima Resort and Spa aims to give you a holiday in Thailand that combines contemporary style and a traditional ethos combined, and ultimately surpasses all expectation.
