Trisara

Feb 19, 2015

On an island where each resort strives to be more opulent than the last, Trisara has managed to stay among the most lavish since it opened in 2004. The most modest accommodation is a spacious 117-meter room with a private plunge pool and a clear view of the Andaman. It only goes up from there—the 22 pool villas are a whopping 240 square meters each and sport 10-meter infinity pools. The same sense of over-the-top luxury pervades almost every aspect of the resort, from the 16-plus-hectares of lush, tropical greenery surrounding the place to the oceanfront restaurant serving up Tasmanian oysters, lobster risotto, and grilled tiger prawns with Himalayan salt. The list of activities is equally long and extravagant, from six-handed massages to private helicopter flights, seaside yoga to talks with private holistic consultants, luxury yacht cruises to champagne-fueled Sunday jazz brunches. Our favorite feature though is one that is becoming increasingly rare on the island: a private, white-sand beach.
