Nature’s Wonder Awaits
“There is pleasure in the pathless woods, there is rapture in the lonely shore, there is society where none intrudes, by the deep sea, and music in its roar; I love not man the less, but nature more.”
You might wonder if Lord Byron visited Phang Nga before penning these peacefully beautiful words about nature. With so many nature-based adventures available directly from the Aleenta Phuket Resort & Spa, you could be inspired to craft your own inspiring quote.
You can arrange a very special visit to Thai Muang Turtle Sanctuary to learn about and observe the conservation efforts of this touching and fascinating haven, where several species of native turtles are protected. You’ll learn why the turtle population is threatened, and how conservation experts are working to grow their numbers with thoughtful programmes designed to ensure the survival of these delicate and important creatures.
Combine your 007 and Star Wars curiosity with an excursion to view some of the most striking natural panoramas on earth with an exciting and exhilarating long-tail boat tour of Phang Nga Bay. Departure time is early to ensure that you’ll witness the stunning vistas of the bay before the arrival of others. See the wonder of nature’s powerful hand at world-renowned James Bond Island, so named because of its iconic appearance in the famous Bond film, “The Man with the Golden Gun.” Phang Nga Bay was also famously seen in “Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith.” You’ll understand why as you gaze upon the almost other-worldly splendour of the jutting rock island formations, mangrove forests and caves throughout the area. You’ll visit two astounding caves during your adventure. Be sure to bring your camera. You might even capture the perfect photo of one of the many beautiful bird species thriving in the bay.
For a sunrise like none you’ve ever known, arrange a Samet Nangshe Viewpoint experience from the resort. Following an early morning drive, you’ll hike for 15-20 minutes to the crest of a tall hill, high above the Phang Nga Bay National Park. You’ll feel like you are truly on top of the world as you watch the red, yellow and orange hues of a sleepy sun slowing rising to reveal breathtaking landscapes in several directions. Alternatively, visit the peak at sunset, when you just might catch a glimpse of the Milky Way on certain days of the year.
If you’re in search of a natural adventure that’s a little heavier on the adventure part, you must partake in the resort’s unique white-water rafting tour experience. You’ll join other thrill-seekers in a fast-paced, gripping journey over roaring river rapids deep in the flourishing, green heart of the rainforest. A delightful part of this experience is a stop at mysterious Monkey Mountain temple, where you’ll explore a one-of-a-kind cave containing a gigantic reclining Buddha and his inquisitive monkey companions. Then, it’s on to the river for the exhilarating fun of a wild, watery ride through the thriving jungle.
Perhaps a more relaxed approach to enjoying the natural delights of Thailand is to your liking. In this case, don’t miss the opportunity to bask in the serenity of the resort’s private Natai Beach experience. Journey by old-fashioned long-tail boat to tranquil Natai Beach, where the sand is as soft as pure white silk, and the water is clear, inviting, and bluer than the sky itself. Relax in these remarkably undisturbed surroundings, soaking up the sun’s warmth, wandering beneath gentle, shady trees, or just relishing in the calm solitude. You can do nothing, or you can partake in snorkelling and other water sports. Whatever you choose, Aleenta Phuket Resort & Spa will keep you cool and comfortable with refreshments throughout your time at Natai.
Are you a hopeless romantic? Does the majesty of nature inspire your heart and stir your desire to share it with someone special? Then book a cozy waterfall and wine picnic for a memorable nature experience you’ll love to love. This exclusive memory-in-the-making for two features a visit to a carefully selected spot in the rainforest where you’ll have views of a bustling waterfall and the chance to commune with nature and each other while savoring fresh Thai snacks prepared by resort’s chef and paired with a perfectly chilled bottle of wine. After your picnic, you can splash into the pristine basin beneath the waterfall for a reinvigorating end to the perfect romantic getaway.

For a more ancient cultural experience that is simultaneously bursting with life, travel from Aleenta Resort on a tour to the mystical Tham Suwan Kuha Temple, situated high upon a grand peak affectionately known as Monkey Mountain. Inside the cave at the temple, stand in awe as you gaze upon a huge, reclining Golden Buddha. You’ll also discover seemingly endless smaller shrines with their own lesser Buddhas, standing stoically amidst stalagmites and other incredible natural rock formations. Following exploration of the cave, go above ground to witness the antics of a very friendly colony of monkeys who would very much like to meet you.
