Rosewood has expanded its portfolio of luxury
hotels to the popular tourist destination of Phuket, Thailand.
The opening of the 71-room Rosewood
Phuket, located along a 600-meter secluded beachfront at Emerald
Bay in the south west of Phuket island, marks not only the first
Southeast Asia resort for Rosewood Hotels & Resorts, but also the
launch of Asaya, Rosewood’s new wellness concept.
The resort features 71 pool
pavilions and villas immersed within a 43-acre verdant landscape.
Each sea-facing, residential-style room features
interiors that blend east and west, contemporary and traditional.
Their expansive garden terraces are private sanctuaries of relaxed
outdoor seating, daybed, infinity pool and Andaman Sea views.
130-square-meter Ocean View Pool Pavilions feature spacious
bedroom and living room areas and an exterior courtyard with deep
soaking bathtub and rain shower.
The 796-square-meter Ocean House
comprises a master bedroom, twin bedroom, separate living and dining rooms and a lush oasis of garden courtyards and shady
terraces, and guests can choose a plunge in their private infinity
pool or taking a few short steps to the warm, crystal-clear waters
of Emerald Bay.
“Our resort opens a window to a unique Phuket experience in this
very special setting, be it a romantic getaway or family and
friends holiday, a once-in-lifetime celebration or a journey to
discover the hidden natural wonders of the island,” said Andrew
Turner, managing director of Rosewood Phuket.
Asaya features a menu of alternative therapies includes Watsu
Therapy, Reiki Healing, Chi Nei Tsang, Life Force Healing Therapy
and Sound Therapy. Fitness and lifestyle experiences include body
stretching, Pilates, personal training sessions, high-intensity
interval training, yoga and meditation, while specialized
workshops and private sessions with visiting practitioners are based on various well-being practices.
Six Asaya suites
include one signature wellness suite which caters to small groups
of friends with dedicated treatment areas, outdoor relaxation
space and Watsu pool. Skin wellness rituals feature Maison
Caulières and EviDenS de Beauté products for in-depth action and
visible long lasting results.
The 24-hour fitness
center features an array of cardiovascular, strengthening and
weight training equipment. Classes in yoga, Mat Pilates and HIIT/Tabata
can be practiced outdoors offering a connection of mind and body
with nature. The organic free-form pool provides a peaceful
beachside oasis with relaxing sun decks, and separate sections for
swimming pool, designated lap pool, and children’s pool.
The Rosewood Explorers club offers a
variety of facilities for children including a vibrant and colorful
indoor space and outdoor play area. Children aged three to eight
will be able to take part in a fun-filled program of activities
with a hands-on focus on creativity and social responsibility.

The solar renewable energy system is one of the largest of any
Phuket hotel, while “landscaped” rooftops provide energy conservation.
Over 75% of the interior spaces in the resort
are exposed to daylight which helps to decrease overall energy consumption and the building materials contain recycled content
where possible to help lower the carbon footprint.
Resort landscaping was under the direction of Bangkok-based PLA
whose focus was the preservation of the natural environment
through the retention or careful transplantation of existing trees
and indigenous foliage right through to the protection of sacred
150-year-old Banyan trees situated in the resort grounds.
A resort-sponsored coral reef restoration project is
also underway in Emerald Bay.
