Opened on Novem­ber 20, Rose­wood Phuket ( 66-76/356-888; rose­wood­ho­tels .com; dou­bles from US$967) is the lux­ury ho­tel group’s first South­east Asian re­sort. It oc­cu­pies a prime 17-hectare plot south of Pa­tong, with 71 vil­las and res­i­den­tial-style pool pavil­ions on lush grounds fronting Tri Trang Beach. Rose­wood Phuket is also the launch site for Asaya, the brand’s new be­spoke well­ness con­cept that in­cludes an on­site ate­lier. The holis­tic ideal con­tin­ues with sus­tain­able design el­e­ments such as rain col­lec­tion and so­lar pan­els, but it’s Rose­wood’s “Sense of Place” ethos that en­velops the re­sort—from gen­tle land­scap­ing that chan­nels the is­land’s nat­u­ral beauty to rooms that em­brace in­door-out­door liv­ing, and the nods to south­ern Thai fishing vil­lages at seafood res­tau­rant Ta Khai.
