As the world’s first Ritz-Carlton Reserve, Phulay Bay embodies the attributes, philosophy and unique style and design of the Reserve brand extension. It has been designed for those who seek to escape the stresses of everyday life and immerse themselves into a completely bespoke and personally-tailored-to-suit vacation experience. Set on the shores of the Andaman Sea, Phulay Bay is a striking 54-villa and pavilion boutique hotel offering unspoilt views of the naturally rugged shoreline and dramatic limestone karsts which make up this beautiful part of southern Thailand. This captivating resort is a perfect escape for those seeking rare, exotic, and authentic experiences in some pf the most remote corners of the world.
The resort is the vision and work of in-demand Thai architect Lek Bunnag, and is an awe-inspiring combination of modern styling and architecture; grand and oversized in scale with distinctive accents from not only Thai, but Middle Eastern and Moroccan cultures. The resorts buildings and public spaces combine contemporary design with cultural elements, perfectly harmonised with the natural flora of existing trees and plants which cleverly act as privacy screens throughout the grounds offering greater intimacy in the resort. The use of traditional story telling Lanna art forms both in architectural structure and as paintings and artworks on the walls and doors of villas further stimulates the senses and creates an element of interest for guests.
Perched on the scenic white sand shores of the Andaman Sea Krabi, Thailand, The Ritz-Carlton, Phulay Bay Reserve is a luxury resort that reveals a world of wonders hidden between the mountains and the sea. Begin your day strolling the beaches, taking a relaxing swim in the hotel’s infinity pool, or hiking through the jungle scenery, beyond the waterfalls to the breathtaking peak of Naga Mountain. Guests will find endless opportunities for adventure, including long-tail boat rides to Hong Island, speedboat trips to Phi Phi Islands or drives out to Tiger Cave Temple or Ao Thalane Mangrove Forest.
