I knew that I loved Aleenta Resort and Spa from the minute I was greeted with a welcome drink and a cold refreshing towel. The friendly staff took the time to explain a little bit about our villa and gave us a brief discussion about what is happening around the local area.
Aleenta has a range of extremely luxurious villas with a stunning view over the Andaman Sea. While select villas include a private infinity-edge pool, most provide direct access to a common pool. They are all equipped with a sun deck and flat-screen television, as well as an iPod with a large music library and a docking station. I would advise booking directly through the hotel as you can request the front villa which steps straight out onto the beach.
The villas are decorated in a contemporary style with private pools, free wireless internet access and revitalising spa just steps away from the ocean. The experience at Aleenta is unique compared to other accommodations around Thailand, as you almost feel like you are on a private island hidden away from society. This is what I loved the most about my stay, as I could quite easily return to the crazy hustle and bustle that Thailand is famous for within minutes of leaving the resort. The absolute best of both worlds!
You can enjoy the view while having a swim or a cocktail at the open-air bar. You can also pamper yourself with a massage and a variety of body treatments available at Aleenta’s spa. Other facilities include a Yoga practice area, as well as a restaurant serving Thai and fusion cuisine, with a wonderful selection vegetarian options too.
Situated along the white sands of Natai Beach, Aleenta Resort is just a 20-minute drive from Phuket International Airport.
