Surin Beach on the west coast of Phuket bears one of the
island’s most entertaining and fashionable resorts, Twinpalms Phuket. Founder
of the infamous “White Party,” the theme of fun and leisure is carried through
to all that makes up this beautiful beachside resort.

Twinpalms Phuket Entrance
For less than 100 rooms, these boutique accommodations
support an incredible amount of facilities. Pools, beach club, spa, fitness,
numerous dining and drinking outlets and the waterfront location ensures guests
could happily occupy themselves for days without leaving the site.

Top landscape architect, Martin Palleros, designed Twinpalms
Phuket incorporating a seamless transition between nature and man-made modernity.
Dubbed, ‘a stunning tropical water garden,’ the grounds of Twinpalms Phuket are
just that. Abundant vegetation meets the water’s edge of lagoons, pools and
calming water features.

Love this Pool!
The most striking cynosure is the central lagoon pool. Spanning
over 1600m2 the centerpiece is 50m long meeting international competition
standards. A sun-bleached deck is fringed with stylishly slim sun chairs and
ivory umbrellas. Shaded day beds see manicured lawns sprouting with frangipanis
on one side and the ocean blue pool on the other.
Rooms
Again for only 97 rooms, Twinpalms Phuket does a brilliant
job of catering to a variety of needs by offering a multitude of room
categories. From the cool clean 55m2 space of a Deluxe Palm Room to the
whopping 600m2 luxury of a Presidential Pool Suite, there’s something for most
proclivities.
The most basic category presents giant glass sliding doors
leading out to a balcony on one side of the bedroom and a separate bathroom on
the other. Dark wood floors are brightened with white walls and bed coverings.
Aquamarine paintings provide simple adornment and a connection between indoors
and out. All the basics are covered with electronic safe, flat screen TV,
complimentary Wi-Fi and mini-bar.

Deluxe Palm Room
The wooden deck holds all weather lounge chairs and
overlooks lush tropical greenery. When in this part of the world, an outdoor
space accessed directly from your room is always appreciated. For a step up,
the 15 Lagoon Pool Rooms benefit from access from their private balconies to
meandering dipping ponds shaded with viridescent foliage.

Grand Deluxe Lagoon Pool Room
Our stay began with a signature welcome of a bubbly cocktail
and presentation of a jasmine bracelet in the main lobby before being greeted
by a resident host.
Twinpalms Phuket, Thailand
Twinpalms Signature Welcome
Led to our accommodation, the host took our details for
check-in within the comfort of the lounge of our Penthouse Pool Suite. Part of
the formalities included customizing the particulars of our stay to our desired
preferences and an orientation to the indulgent three stories of living space. Which
pillow would we like? How about fruit likings? Which scent takes our fancy for the
diffuser and, what flowers would bring happiness to our home? (Our answers:
memory foam; mix of pineapple, mango and pomelo; lemongrass; and frangipanis.)
Informed that the residence host service is on-call 24 hours a day, we were
left alone but with the reminder that assistance is a mere call away.

Penthouse Suite Living Room
Milky marble floors and white walls are the palette for dark
wooden furniture with simple functional lines and a few well-placed artworks in
the form of contemporary paintings and ceramics. The entry level is an open
living and dining area with a double height ceiling and separate bathroom. A dining
table capable of seating six, a breakfast bar, working desk, sofa, armchairs and

Penthouse Suite Dining Room
The mini-bar is impressive! A dedicated wine fridge with
quality drops such as a vintage Dom Perignon is sided with a liquor cabinet of
big name spirits. Glasses hang from a rack above ensuring you have the
appropriate shape and size for your selected beverage. Two mini-fridges hold
further refreshment and not only is there an espresso machine, but a separate
milk frother too!
Twinpalms Phuket, Thailand
Penthouse Suite Mini Bar
The splendor continues on the mid-level with a king sized
bed dressed in 385 thread count linens. Two self-contained wardrobes give each
his/her own space with soft robes and slippers enclosed too.  Double sinks in the bathroom are almost a
‘must’ these days and our room is up with the times. Molten Brown bath products
from London add a lush designer stroke to the general feel and, a free-standing
bathtub begs to be filled.

Penthouse Suite Bedroom
Moving to the rooftop, the Penthouse Pool Suite shines with
its private 9x3m pool. An infinity edge, frangipani on the deck, cushioned sun
chairs and, another mini-bar make this a playground we’re not keen on leaving
anytime soon. That said however, there’s much fun to be discovered around this
property, so we set off to explore.

Food and Beverage
Most room deals include breakfast and ours is taken at Oriental Spoon Grill and Bar. Thai,
Western and fusion influences thread the cuisine and contemporary Thai art
marks the interior. This is Twinpalms all day dining option and the atmosphere hots
up at night with regular live music. Our stay is blessed with the skill of a
pianist from San Francisco who extends a more refined style of entertainment
than that found at the pumping beach clubs. Check out our experience at
Oriental Spoon via this link.

Oriental Spoon
Catch Beach Club
is a must for anyone visiting or residing on the island of Phuket. Famed for
the alliterating trio of fun, fashion and fabulousness, this beach club is best
visited late afternoon in time to grab a cool cocktail and marvel at the
magnificent sunset. Staying on through the evening rewards night owls with some
of the most talked about parties in the region. We tried their buffet. Find out what they serve here.

Catch Beach Club
While Catch Beach Club is the place to be seen in the
evenings, BIMI Beach Club is Phuket’s
only all day party scene. Fresh local and international snacks and light meals
keep tummies satiated as bodies strut their tanned, trim lines while mingling
and dancing on the soft sandy shores of the Surin.

Twinpalms too has other outlets around the island to which
they’re happy to transfer you to. FLAME’s open kitchens provide in house
entertainment and true to its name barbecued fare. Take away and home delivery
are popular options for those homebodies who prefer the comfort of their own
couch or dining table for meals. Pasta,
Sushi
and Bake are three more
outlets, offering further choice to both residing and visiting guests.
Facilities
Thailand is known for its scrumptious food and exotic
cocktails and we’ve had more than our fill at Twinpalms. All those calories add
up and we’re happy to find a well equipped fitness centre to keep our hips
under control. A boutique allows a little shopping in the comfort of the resort
and a library is decked with books, magazines and a few computer terminals to
stay connected with the world or check-in for your next flight.

importance of sustainable practices. We’re happy to see a number of principles

as Aka coffee beans from Northern Thailand, too is highly valued, contributing

daily and invite staff to take care of public spaces.
