Aleenta Named Best Overseas Hotel

Aleenta Phuket Resort named best Overseas Hotel

Best Overseas Hotel

The award follows the first phase of Alennta 3.5 million (USD) makeover, which saw the addittion of an absolute beachfront infinity pool and childrens club, with 44 pools, suites and villas to open by the end of 2014.

ALEENTA Phuket Resort & Spa recently added another accolade to its trophy cabinet after being named Best Overseas Hotel at the prestigious China Best Design Hotel Awards. Aleenta Phuket, part of the AHMS The Collection, was in illustrious company, with other winners at the annual event comprising luxury hospitality's elite: St Regis Sanya Yalong Bay, Amanfayun in Hangzhou and the Waldorf Astoria Shanghai on the Bund.

Aleenta Phuket's latest honour follows a USD3.5 million renovation-and-innovation spend to further elevate the 'barefoot luxury' experience for guests. Anchalika Kijkanakorn, managing director and founder of the Aleenta owner-operator AHMS The Collection, said the award was recognition for the resort's continual metamorphosis into something better while cherishing its surrounds. "We are continually striving to provide guests with a luxurious boutique experience that surprises and delights," she said. "We don't rest on our laurels. We continue to innovate and improve."

"Without straying from our commitment to barefoot luxury, our latest improvements have ramped up the luxury part of the equation. It has taken the resort to another level. In fact, it feels like a new resort in some respects but all the Aleenta service touches and thoughtful gestures remain, with some new ones besides."

The renovation sees the resort turn its attention to families in earnest for the first time through the launch of The Children's Club. The state-of the art club has a pool and play area staffed by fully qualified and certified carers who hold engaging and fun classes where learning and development are key factors.

Inquiries & Feedback



Spent an incredible week at this magnificent resort earlier this month. What an amazing place to get away from it all. The villas are incredibly designed with comfort & spaciousness being the top priority. The hospitality by the entire team from the Resort Manager Matthias & Executive Chef Valero right on down to every staff member exceeded my expectations in every way. Thanks for taking such great care of us. I will definitely be back.

This was my first trip to Thailand and I was worried in case I had missed the boat on the Thailand of old. I should not have worried. This small, intimate and friendly five star resort is the most perfect position on a spectacular stretch of beach at Pak Nampran Bay. The emphasis on sustainability and doing things in a green and eco fashion makes you feel like you are also doing your bit. As a passionate foodie, I loved the fact that the menu is created from produce organically grown at the eco farm a few kilometres away. The menu tells you how far each dish has travelled to reach your table. One of my favorite moments was waking up to watch the sunrise from the comfort of my huge squishy bed, which overlooked the beach. Each afternoon, someone delivers a beautiful tray of fresh canapes to your room. You can even choose what time you would like to enjoy happy hour! It's rare to find a high end hotel with such a down to earth, friendly vibe and most importantly of all, a very clear and passionate social conscience. Please keep on doing what you are doing, please don't change. I'll be back and thank you for an unforgettable stay.

My husband and I spent part of our honeymoon on your premises from December 5 to December 12, 2016. Our stay at Aleenta was absolutely fantastic and felt way too short! We enjoyed your kind hospitality, the extraordinary food, the facilities, the massages and the view we had from our room to the fullest. My husband and I are experienced travellers but we have hardly come across such friendliness, kindness and willingness as from you to make our holidays so special and unique. We will surely come back and already miss you a lot. Thank you so very much again!

An amazing experience! We were a large group for a wedding and it was such a nice experience. I actually ended up sleeping on hammock. The food was really good, and all the service was amazing.
