The Surin Phuket Reopens After Renovation

Thai luxury beach resort The Surin Phuket has reopened after an extensive renovation that saw it redesigned by Paris-based architect and interior designer Ed Tuttle. Nestled along the coast on Pansea Beach, the 108-cottage retreat now boasts larger and brighter spaces, a revamped lounge and restaurant, as well as a new beach bar and gym.


The cottages received a new lease of life with enhancements to provide a fresh interpretation to the Thai beach house. Sustainable cedar-like shingles make up the roof, while frameless windows allow an abundance of natural light to illuminate the golden teak and natural grey makkar wood tones for an airy and spacious feel that complement the private veranda and sundeck. Guests will continue to be pampered with luxury bedding, bathroom featuring an expansive vanity and dressing area, flatscreen television with Bose sounddock system, high-speed internet access, IDD telephone, in-room safe, minibar and coffee-/tea-making facilities.


The Surin Phuket’s Sunset Cafe & Bar has been transformed into an intimate lounge space with indoor and outdoor seating overlooking the swimming pool and sapphire waters of the Andaman Sea, while the new Beach Bar stays open late into the night against the sound of the lapping waves. The Lomtalay Thai restaurant and Beach Restaurant continue to serve up mouthwatering favorites in relaxed settings that extends to the lobby (that guests can use as an all-day chill-out spot) and public spaces with its clean lines and thakiantong wood.


A new private outdoor terrace joins the resort’s existing 3 meeting rooms, perfect for hosting parties or intimate events. Below the terrace is the new 90-square meter gymnasium, while long staircase running the length of the swimming pool connects the resort with the white sandy beach, where sunbeds line the terrace overlooking the water. Other recreational facilities include the spa, tennis courts and a host of watersport activities, as well as a round of golf at some of Asia’s finest championship courses.


A member of Design Hotels, The Surin Phuket (formerly known as The Chedi Phuket) is one of 4 Thai properties in the collection. Complementing the rustic serenity of its location, the resort offers a spirit of true island hospitality to guests.
