Hidden away amid mountainous headland on the southwest coast of Phuket, Rosewood Phuket offers convenient access to the bustling seaside towns nearby, while the cultural heart of the island, the historic old town, is a short drive away.

A total of 71 pavilions and villas, where contemporary furnishings will combine with neutral color palettes, subtle Thai influences and abundant natural light with floor-to-ceiling windows.

A timeless elegance, the resort designed by renowned Melbourne-based BARStudio creating an environmentally sensitive, contemporary architecture style that blends organically with the tropical landscape.

Sustainable design elements will be incorporated, including rain water retention ponds providing the resort’s entire water supply, “landscaped” rooftops for energy conservation and the largest solar renewable energy system of any Phuket hotel.
