Imagine being cozied up with your favorite guy in a private pool villa overlooking the Andaman Sea. This dream can be a reality if you stay at the Pavilions in Phuket.

Perched in the hills above Layan Beach, The Pavilions Phuket Resort offers spacious private villas, relaxed youthful vibes, and excellent value for money. The entry-level rooms surround the resort swimming pool but the main attraction are the resort's private pool villas. It's hard to get more InstaPerfect than private infinity pools set in the hills, overlooking Phuket's incredible beaches and light blue ocean.

Outside of your private villas, the resort's facilities include two restaurants, two swimming pools, and an excellent spa. If you wanted to explore Phuket's gay nightlife, Patong party town sits roughly 45 minutes away by taxi from the resort.

Perched on one of the highest peaks on Phuket Island, just above the Laguna district, The Pavilions is a private oasis. It’s just over 20 km (around a 40-minute drive along the windy coast road) to Patong Beach, where you can find the gay nightlife, For an authentic Thai experience, the world-renowned Phuket Fantasea is only 14 km (25-minute drive) away. If you need a break from lounging in the pool and want some laid-back beach vibes, the nearest sand is a 5-minute motorcycle ride or a leisurely 30-minute stroll down the hill.

Style & Design

Classic Thai culture meets contemporary design with attention to detail in all the finishes. What looks like a mini Thai village atop a hill from afar, at close range, is class and style all the way. 5-star pampering is what you get from the moment you arrive at the check-in lounge. It doesn’t let up until well after you’ve departed for your next destination.


Phuket’s range of wellness centers are world-famous, and the one at The Pavilions is one of the best. Apart from a range of treatments that span Western and Eastern cultures, there’s a 30m lap pool for those wanting to get in some extra cardio. Let’s talk about food and drink. Alto restaurant serves breakfast from 7-10.30, and Firefly has monthly-themed food. For those of you who never want to leave your villa, start the day with a floating breakfast served in your pool, and for dinner, the ultimate in dining, get a private BBQ with your own chef! Choose your meats from the extensive menu, and the chef will prepare and cook for you while you sit at a candlelit table. A must-do for any stay at The Pavilions is a cocktail at the 360 Bar at sunset. With uninterrupted views over the Andaman Sea, this is the most InstaWorthy sunset you’ll ever experience.


Space, luxury, and views to die for are the best ways to describe the rooms at The Pavilions Phuket. The ‘lead in’ room is a whopping 81 sqm, and they just get bigger from there. While the villas are an excellent option with a lounge that has a bar and a guest bathroom (think private party!) We love the pool villa. It’s like living in your own mini day spa, complete with a private couples spa and steam room. If you’re a sun-worshiper, you’ll love the sundeck!
