Think Surin, think seclusion. This is the place you'll want to be when absolute disconnection from the rest of the world is in order. This slice of bliss elegantly sashays down the tropical landscape to rest along Phuket's finest white sandy beach at Pansea Bay, world-famous for its crystal clear waters and pristine white sands. The resort nestles in peaceful seclusion in the form of 108 secluded cottages gently shaded by coconut palms on verdant slopes. It is the genuine rustic serenity and warm tropical hospitality that beach lovers and island enthusiasts seek.

This celebrated resort paradise has been rejuvenated by its original designer, Paris-based architect Ed Tuttle who has artfully refreshed Thai beach cottages utilizing local materials and traditional designs fused with modern functionality. The cottages are connected by elevated walkways and all feature unobstructed views of the ocean, spacious bedrooms, bathrooms with his-and-hers vanities and high-tech electronic elements. All done up in custom made furnishings and warm, earthy, organic colors. The atmosphere is eclectic yet serene, the service is high touch yet unobtrusive.

Authentic dining can be found at a variety of the resort's eateries, including Lomtalay offering a wide selection of regional, delectable dishes, and casual Asian fare and international specialties at the Beach and Sunset Bars. Fitness and wellness come in many forms at the Surin, from the stylish black-tiled pool adjacent to a special children's pool, fully- equipped gymnasium, and all manner of watersport from catamarans to windsurfing, snorkeling to scuba diving and more. Relaxation can be found within the peaceful confines of The Surin Spa, created in harmony with the natural beauty of the surroundings, featuring a complete menu of Thai-inspired wellness and rejuvenation treatments. Spa rooms offer sweeping views of the Andaman Sea and pose the perfect sanctuary for ultimate spa indulgence
