A holiday getaway full of color, enthusiasm and style, Phulay Bay is a gorgeous destination in Thailand. It can be found on the shores of the Andaman Sea, among dramatic limestone karsts and naturally rugged landscapes, in Southern Thailand.
Phulay Bay comprises a total of 54 villas and pavilions, providing breathtaking views of the staggering region, alongside large doses of in-house luxury. The resort was imagined and penned down by the acclaimed Thai architect Lek Bunnag. It encompasses both traditional and contemporary styles alongside designs borrowed from worldly cultures like Middle Eastern, Moroccan and Thai, embodied in large proportions.
Upon arrival, guests are being greeted by 20-feet high aubergine walls and hedges crafted from local tree essences, providing a relevantly tranquil and naturally-elegant impression of what’s about to unveil inside. Further paving the way is a stepping-stone path which leads to the stunning pitched-roof Thai pavilion located on a separate island, surrounded by shyly flickering candles – thousands of them.
Accommodation-wise, the 16 iconic Reserve Villas are dramatically different from each other. There are some with lap pools and lawn areas for sunbathing or related activities, alongside sunset viewings and private rooftops perfect for alfresco dining, and others with completely-separated and hidden pool bathing areas, providing tranquility and full intimacy.
In addition, guests are able to tailor-make or design any villa or suit to match personal tastes and needs. Every villa is being attended by a butler, who can organize events like meditation classes with local monks, elephant trekking to a remote picnic spot, tours of the local landscapes by sea plane, light BBQ lunches at a gorgeous beach spot, boat journeys towards the surrounding islets and islands or even personal yoga lessons inside guests’ own villas.
