Thailand is a renowned hotspot for backpackers and budget travellers, thanks to its affordable accommodation within beautiful natural scenery, However, the young, rich and famous are now flocking to the country, and one five-star resort in Phuket is attracting trendy guests for whom, money is of no importance.
Kata Rocks in Phuket has only been open since November, 2015, but it has attracted a young and glitzy clientele who are keen to soak up the sunshine and share photos on social media sites.
The luxury resort has 43 huge villas made up of one and two-bedroom Sky Villas, Ocean Loft, Spa Villas, and a four-bedroom Sky Villa Penthouse. The villas feature chic, contemporary design and upscale Italian-made furniture, as well as luxury amenities including Nespresso coffee machines and an in-room iPad that controls the lighting, temperature, music, television, blinds and service request.
The outdoor terraces boast views of the Andaman Sea and are furnished with padded sun loungers and a shaded area with day bed. The seven-metre-long private infinity pool is perfect for cooling off from the scorching sun. Spa Villas feature massage beds and personal concierges and spa therapists who are available throughout their stay, while the 134-square-metre Ocean Loft Villas have an elevated west-facing position so guests can enjoy the stunning Phuket sunsets every night.
The four-bedroom Sky Villa Penthouses are perched at the top of the hill and offer complete privacy. The villas boast 460 square-metres of space over two floors, and there are outdoor living areas and a spacious terrace. The villa’s outside dining area has a barbecue galley and cooking station, and guests can enjoy 14-metre-long private infinity pools with swim-up pool bar.
It’s not just the young and trendy who are attracted to Kata Rocks; celebrity survival guide, Bear Grylls is a regular to the resort, and he owns one of the penthouses. He declared:
“I guess in part that I make a living by eating some pretty disgusting things to show how to stay alive if you are in a survival scenario. But when I want to just chill out with family and friends, then I try and pick places that are discreet but spectacular; Kata Rocks is both of those in abundance.”
The resort’s facilities include the Infinite Luxury Spa, a fitness centre, a wine cellar, a Thai Cooking School, a lounge and sunset bar that overlooks the infinity pool and the sea, and the oceanfront restaurant that serves exquisite Mediterranean and Thai cuisine.
