The Hotel Pools of Phuket: Private Villas Mean Private Pools at the Anantara

Sometimes you just don't want to share a hotel pool with other guests. Perhaps you want to skinnydip, or meditate, or have family time, or just float in the middle of the pool and completely, utterly zone out. Whatever your reasons, we get it. So does the Anantara Phuket Villas, because each of their 83 villas comes complete with its own private pool, plus deck with loungers, a traditional Thai Sala, outdoor shower and giant sunken bathtub.

Guests can easily spend the majority of a weeklong vacation here lost in the luxuries of their private abode—heck, there are even rose petals and salts provided for the fancy bathtub—but for the rest of the time, there's always the three main pools.

Here's the cool thing. There's only one suite at the Anantara Phuket; it's the two-bedroom Similan Suite and it boasts a larger pool than all the rest, obviously, but the 82 other villas are mostly the same save for a choice of blue or green pool tiling. It makes it kinda difficult to get jealous of your villas neighbors.

Each pool—no matter if you booked the cheapest deal or the Similan Suite—includes a huge sunken bathtub. Built-in steps directly from the sliding French doors of the villa bathroom descend into it, and a glass window divides the hot bath from the cool pool.

Want to jump into the pool directly from the bedroom? No problem. Want to sit in the pool for hours and hours until you probably have to pee or get some food? There's a built-in underwater bench area (plus the minibar is like, two feet away under the Sala).

We'll reveal the rest of the villa itself next week, but right now let's play the price guessing game. How much do you think one night here costs? Nope—not four digits. With their 20% off deal right now for stays through December—which happens to be high season—villas begin at $311 per night.
