Mövenpick Resort Bangtao Beach Phuket: Review

The definition of luxury. This elegant resort opposite the tranquil Bang Tao Beach centers around a colossal rectangular pool with a sunken bar that doubles as the home of Movenpick’s legendary “chocolate hour”. Grab a deck chair or poolside cabana and gorge in a chocolatey snack or drink on the house. Take pampering to the next level at Blossom Spa with an aromatic facial, massage or haircut.

Luxury continues in guest rooms with large open spaces, a fully equipped kitchen and a separate living/dining room with a Bose surround sound system. Selected rooms also include a large outdoor terrace with a private swimming pool. Guests fully committed to luxury can order a private chef to prepare an authentic Thai meal in their private kitchen while they relax by the private pool or in a fluffy robe.
