A trip to Thailand conjures dreams of opulent temples and sky-high spires adorned with decor invoking a rich culture.
While you’ve probably visited the country’s famous palaces, have you ever lived in one? We’ve found a themed hotel patterned after the grand palace in Thailand with lavish pools just an hour away from Phuket International Airport.
The Sawasdee Village Resort & Spa lets you live like royalty for just S$155/night.
The resort is a sight to see for art and culture connoisseurs because the architecture mirrors local temples and palaces. If you’ve ever dreamed of living like a king or queen, here’s what else to expect.
Lots of hotels claim to be a hidden oasis, but Sawasdee Village Resort & Spa is literally one.
Parents might opt for the Garden Zone which includes a jacuzzi and a children’s pool. Feel free to lie down on a lounge chair and sip on cocktails, whilst watching the kids’ have water fights.
Luxury-loving kings and queens often bathed in canals and waterfalls, and you can have the same experience at the Baray Villa zone.
The elephant is Thailand’s national animal and it was often worshiped as a religious icon or used on battlefields. You’ve probably seen elephant statues in numerous temples, but you can now swim amongst them too.
We can’t deny that the resort looks beautiful during the day, but pools of starlight takeover at night.
The underwater fairy lights make the water shimmer and sparkle like a scene straight out of a fairytale.
The dining hall mirrors the grandeur of a luxurious palace with its rich tones of gold.
Thanks to the favourable exchange rate, you can binge on Thai soups, salads, appetizers, seafood and noodles.
You might have a fantasy of swimming in an opulent-looking pool bar and drinking your favourite drinks. At the Baray Villa pool bar, this dream turns into reality.
We really don’t mind staying in the water all-day long at the Garden Deluxe Pool bar which serves pizzas, salads and specialty cocktails.
We all crave a day full of pampering by skilled Thai masseuses, and the resort doesn’t disappoint.
Their spa was named as one of the Top 50 Spas in Paradise by the Tourism Authority of Thailand.
Their offerings include a wide range of treatments such as aromatherapy massage, hot stone massage and Swedish massage.
Enjoy an afternoon in heaven at their steam rooms, Vichy Shower room, foot baths, bathtub, rain shower and beauty room.
The hotel has four types of luxurious accommodations – Garden Deluxe, Oasis Suite Garden View, Cabana Suite Pool Access & The Baray Villa.
The Garden Deluxe suite is inspired by Southeast Asian style and culture. We’re falling in love with the massive master bed and the scenic pool view.
The Oasis suite is lavishly decorated with a dramatic domed roof and ornate hand-cut mirrors.
The Cabana suite is inspired by the legend of Ramayana in Hinduism with a touch of modern architecture. We may not know the entire epic legend, but a night here will give you a legendary sleep experience.
Those who crave for privacy with bae should book the Baray Villa which is located in a private corner of the Sawasdee Village. You’ll undoubtedly feel like you’re in a secluded tropical paradise.
You can book a flight from Singapore to Phuket International Airport via AirAsia, Scoot and Jetstar. From there, take a 1 hour and 30 minute cab ride to Sawasdee Village Resort & Spa.
