Just how little do you want to do when you are on holiday? If you don’t want to cook, explore, push through crowds, or even leave a luxurious villa, then there are more than a few upscale Thai coastal resorts that will meet your needs. But if you don’t even want to bother putting on clothes in the morning, then Phuket Pavilions’ “all-over tan” policy might settle the issue for you.
The idea is that your villa is so private, and its luxuries so comprehensive, that you’ll never have to leave, instead passing your days lounging naked in the sun. After you collect your iPod on arrival, which has playlists with names like “chill-out” and “make-out,” you can marvel at the size of your bathroom and the design of your own private infinity pool before finally examining the room service menu. It’s at this point the thinking behind the resort starts to make sense.
If at some point cabin fever does strike, the Laguna shopping and entertainment center is a short complimentary car ride away, as are various beaches and golf courses. Do remember that guests should remain clothed when outside of the hotel, as the rest of Phuket doesn’t quite share the Pavilions’ enthusiasm for the clothing-optional traveler. And if all that activity (or clothing) sounds like too much, then a number of spa treatments can be enjoyed in your villa’s dedicated spa room. As you can see, the Phuket Pavilions will go to almost any length to ensure nothing spoils your quest for total relaxation.
