Reasons to Vacation in Phuket

Reasons to Vacation in Phuket

One of the hallmarks of a top tourist destination is variety. And Phuket offers just that. This island province welcomes millions of visitors each year looking to relax, explore, and delve into some high octane fun. Here are a few of the highlights Phuket Island has to offer to anybody staying with us at Trisara.

The Beaches

Thailand is home to some of the world’s most beautifully pristine beaches. Several of which can be found in Phuket. Their white powdery sands and stunning jade hued waters overlooked by forested hills make for a huge draw. While they can vary somewhat in terms of size, accessibility, and foot traffic, they are all naturally beautiful with amenities ranging from surf schools to high-end restaurants. Those looking to enjoy a more private experience of tropical paradise should consider exclusive resorts like Trisara, the garden in the third heaven. Our private beach ensures guests enjoy unfettered sweeping views of the sea and can frolic on the powdery soft sands without contending with crowds.

The Temples

Phuket hosts 29 amazing Buddhist temples with the most popular being Wat Chalong. These colourful temples adorned in red and gold are a sight to behold. Those with an interest in culture and religion will appreciate the temples and dedicated museums. You can also easily spot the Big Buddha from any location on the south of Phuket Island.

The Islands

No stay at Trisara is complete without a visit to the nearby islands. Phuket is surrounded by hundreds of unspoiled islands that can be easily accessed with a boat ride. Many of these feature unspoiled beaches, clear waters, and rugged terrain that adventure seekers can enjoy. Diving around these islands is a popular activity thanks to the abundance of marine life in the surrounding coral reefs. Spend a day island hopping and exploring everything from the Phi Phi Islands to Richelieu Rock.

The Sunny Weather

The best time to enjoy a trip to the beach is when there is sunny weather. It makes for the perfect climate to explore watery depths and leaves you with a golden tan. Phuket is blessed to enjoy warm weather virtually year-round. While the high season is when the climate is best, other times of the year can be just as good to enjoy the outdoors. Occasional rains can be expected but last a matter of minutes.

The Food

As well as Fine Dining at Trisara Phuket is home to a wide array of high-end to budget-friendly restaurants. If you want to enjoy some of the finest local Thai or international dishes then you will not be disappointed. Thai cuisine is appreciated for its use of fresh ingredients, herbs, and spices. Visitors and locals do appreciate the variety and depth of flavours that can be found in various eateries around the islands.

The Nightlife

For many travellers, a vacation is not complete without some revelry. Many of Phuket’s beaches are lined with bars and clubs, but the highest concentration is to be found along Bangla Road. The entire street is a party scene where you can find just about any ambience. Whether you are looking for a sports bar or want to dance the night away, there is ample choice to choose from. If looking for more colourful entertainment, try the Simon Cabaret show.

Most Popular Beaches in Phuket


There is nothing quite as enjoyable as a day at the beach. This is especially the case when it is at a destination famous for its stunning landscape and multitude of other attractions like scuba diving and snorkelling. Phuket is home to some of the most pristine shorelines the world over. With over 30 beaches, there is no shortage of locations one can visit to enjoy either a fun-filled time or simply relax on the sands.

Trisara is located on this stunning island, and here we consider some of the most popular and out-of-the-way Phuket beach spots that are our guests can enjoy.

Kata Beach

Located along the west coast of Phuket, Kata Beach is one of the larger beaches in the region with about 1.5 km of shoreline. It is a popular choice for locals and tourist families that require more legroom for everyone wanting to sunbathe on its white sands. Its palm tree-lined shore makes for great cover when people want to eat and drink while enjoying the views. The beach has excellent access to a variety of amenities thanks to the many shops and eateries that are run along the beach. Travellers can opt to stay at one of the several resorts here which provide easy access to this not so busy beach.

Freedom Beach

Just a 10-minute boat ride from Patong, this hidden gem of a destination is one of the most picturesque thanks to its jade coloured waters and immaculate sands. It is an unspoiled paradise that though not easy to get to, offers one a throwback to a time before Thailand became a top tourist destination. Freedom beach is also one of the cleanest beaches you will find in Phuket, with just one delectable restaurant at the south end.

Nai Thon Beach

A visit to Nai Thon is made all the more delightful by the route followed. The winding drive to this secluded destination will take you through virgin rainforests that lead to the soft white sands of the beach. During the high season, it is a great place to try out some diving or take a boating trip to explore rocky coves in the area. Those looking for a more private experience may want to travel a few minutes southward to Trisara Beach. Accessible only to guests of the resort or diners of its top restaurants, it is the perfect spot for some easy relaxation and pampering.

Kamala Beach

Located north of Patong, this is another popular choice for tourists looking for a calmer experience. The bay is overseen by forested hills that make for natural scenic beauty whichever direction you look. The calm shallow waters make it a good option for families, with water activities more easily available during high season. It is bordered by a variety of restaurants ranging from the high-end to budget-friendly. It is also considered one of the cleanest beaches in the province, possibly thanks to its lighter traffic as compared to the livelier Patong beach. Guests of Trisara looking to mingle with locals and other tourists here are just a 30-minute drive from this location.

Surin Beach

This naturally blessed shoreline offers pristine white sands on which to frolic and stunning turquoise depths to surf and explore. The waters here are deeper than most other beaches, making it ideal for fans of scuba diving and snorkelling. Surfing and kayaking activities are also popular but care should be taken as the tides can sometimes get a bit rough. The area has plenty of high-end resorts and hotels with a museum, temple, park, and green market in close proximity.

The Luxury Villa Experience in Phuket

The Luxury Villa Experience in Phuket

Your accommodation plays a large part in your vacation experience and here at Trisara, we offer luxury Villa experiences that will help to make your stay a special one. All of our friendly and professional staff looks forward to welcoming you to the land of smiles. Below are just a few of the reasons why our guests come back year after year.

Magnificent Views

When you have a suite or villa facing the Andaman Sea, there is nothing quite like it. Guests of Trisara are spoilt with stunning views of the ocean and the beach. Here you will find that each villa is surrounded by luscious gardens that not only obscure guests from other properties but also add to the natural charm of the scenery. From sunrise to sunset, guests get to enjoy sweeping views of beaches, bays and sometimes islands beyond.


Those that value their privacy will find that a luxury villa is just what they need. Our resort makes use of greenery to segregate properties, ensuring guests enjoy maximum privacy, whether inside the villa or enjoying a drink out on the terrace. The sloping terrain ensures that only the backside and roofing of properties can be seen from above, so even if you are closest to the beach, you still get to keep your privacy at all times. Private gate access and canopied walkways add to the feeling of intimacy.

Top Class Amenities

The creature comforts you would enjoy at any five-star hotel can just as easily be found in a private villa. Basics like internet Wi-Fi, flat-screen TVs, and bathrobe and slippers are to be expected. You will also have the added benefit of a private pool, terrace, and garden area. Our guests can always expect the best of everything during their stay, including the finest furnishings and fittings. We want you to feel as though you are in the lap of luxury throughout your stay with us.


Range of Choice

The luxury villa experience is not confined to just palatial properties. While there are villas that have many rooms, it does not mean guests that are on their own or just a couple cannot be accommodated. We are delighted to offer private residences that range from one-bedroom junior suites to 8-bedroom villas. This means you can find accommodation that will match your needs and budget, even if not accompanied by friends or family. Feel free to contact us and the team at Trisara will be delighted to help you with just what you need.


We also give you the opportunity to invest and have a luxury villa that belongs to you. Being an owner allows you more control over such issues as design; it can also be a great source of revenue if you allow the property to be rented out by the resort. When you do decide to stay at your property, you get to enjoy the same services and facilities as other guests of the resort. Occupied or unoccupied, these villas are always well taken care of by our dedicated staff.

Getting Married in Phuket

Getting Married in Phuket


A wedding is one of the most special days of any marriage.  Any couple would want to have a memorable day in the best surroundings possible. What better surroundings are there than the stunning island of Phuket, Thailand? Phuket is one of the most beautiful places on earth, with a lovely mix of natural splendour, a warm climate, and welcoming culture that makes it a top destination for weddings.

Here at Trisara we aim to make your wedding a day that you will never forget for all the right reasons. Below we offer some advice on ensuring your special day is perfect.

Ceremonial or Legal

Getting married away from home can be somewhat complicated. Here in Thailand, it will require visits to your embassy or consulate to secure a notarized Letter of Intent, having your documentation, including passports, translated into Thai, and visiting the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to have this registered.

Depending on circumstances and your country of origin, you may be required to provide additional documents. After the wedding, the certificate must be translated back into your language. All this work may require running around for several days before the wedding ceremony and a bit more afterwards.

The easiest way around this is to simply get married back home and come to Phuket for the ceremony. That way the legal aspects are taken care of and you can relax and focus on the celebrations.

Another option could be to engage the services of a marriage planner that can have someone handle the paperwork for you. This will naturally attract extra charges but does ensure an expert who understands the legalities sees to the details.

Location, Location, Location

Every couple has a picture in their mind of what they want their wedding to look like. Phuket offers a variety of idyllic settings to choose from. Trisara offers the choice of luscious gardens and pristine private beaches where couples can set the stage for the most important day in their lives. Private villas are also easily available for more intimate gatherings. Our private beach offers an intimate setting for up to 30 guests, while our private residences and deck area can accommodate larger gatherings of 80-120 guests.

Destination weddings also provide a wonderful opportunity for family and friends to enjoy some vacation time while bonding and indulging in festivities. Choosing a location like Phuket ensures accessibility to all manner of amusements. Whether you prefer to lounge poolside enjoying the warm sun or desire to dance the night away in nightclubs, there is something for everyone.

The Wedding Planner

Hiring a wedding planner is highly recommended when getting married in Phuket. You will want someone with connections in the industry that can take care of all the details. Besides helping with any legal paperwork, you will also want to ensure your guests are well taken care of. A wedding planner can organise an itinerary of activities for those guests who prefer more high-octane or cultural fun than simply relaxing poolside.

They will also handle all issues to do with vendors so everything is ready on time, just the way you want it. Trisara offers the services of a dedicated wedding planner as part of its wedding packages so you can a have a contact person overseeing all aspects of your occasion.
