There is a place of peace nestled amongst coconut palms above a crescent-shaped beach by the brilliant turquoise sea. This place is Amanpuri, on Thailand's jade-green island of Phuket, where nature and culture harmoniously merge, yielding a pure tranquillity where less means more and luxury is found in graciousness.
Amanpuri embodies the inner spirit of Thai culture while allowing nature to reign supreme. The natural beauty combined with sincere warmth and a genuine soul allows for complete rejuvenation.
'Amanpuri' translated from Sanskrit as 'place of peace' was opened in 1988, the firstborn to the Aman 'family'. This tranquil prodigy has pride of place on Phuket in a secluded natural coconut grove on a peninsula leading down to a soft, crescent shaped beach overlooking the mesmerizing turquoise Andaman Sea. Amanpuri continues to evolve with a peaceful purity, which is reflected in its gracious service, and the sympathetic construction of its pavilions, villas, and stylish midnight-blue pools.
