Mom Tri'sVilla Royale The elusive pleasures of Thai traditional elegance and calm are rarely found to this degree. Away from the crowds of Phuket is a true sanctuary of Thai style: Mom Tri's Villa Royale. An intimate hotel for travellers who want a genuine cultural experience and to never forget they are in Thailand. This boutique hotel's name echoes its royal heritage. It was once the private holiday villa of Mom Luang Tridhosyuth Devakul (better known as Mom Tri), a renowned Thai architect and descendant of King Mongkut Rama IV. Set on a hillside just above Kata Noi Beach, a private path from the hotel leads to the beach where guests can enjoy the classic white sand and turquoise water. Views of the sea are enjoyed from most areas of the hotel. Standard rooms, also known as the Beach Wing Suites, face the sea and enjoy sea views. They are comfortable, spacious and have a balcony or terrace to enjoy the view. Three swimming pools can be found also overlooking the sea with a choice of freshwater or seawater. There are only 35 rooms in total which add to the personalised feeling of this boutique hotel. Every exquisite detail, furnishing, food, service and atmosphere at Mon Tri's is a testament to its heritage of comfort and pleasure. The wine cellar has won Wine Spectator magazine's Award of Excellence. Mon Tri's relaxed, breezy dining is famed for inspired gourmet innovations and sea views. Mom Tri's Vila Royale is one of Phuket's most exclusive boutique resorts. It is situated away from the crowds on quiet headland but just a few minute walk into the town of Kata. Dining and Wining Mom Tri's Kitchen is a Wine Spectator award-winning gourmet restaurant over looking the Andaman Sea and white sand beach of Kata Noi. Two exuberant menus offers delicious Thai and international creations from executive chefs Darren and Sura. Spa Mom Tri's Spa Royale is located in a lush tropical garden. Masseuse therapists apply the ancient knowledge to natural Thai remedies to balance the body and calm the mind. New Ocean Wing Villa Royale has just launched a new wing. A blend of contemporary and traditional Thai design, the 5 semi-detached rooms are set on an expansive, secluded area at the tip of the headland facing the ocean. Pathways through the mature gardens lead to four private decks on the rocks just at the water's edge. Children under 12 are not permitted. THE RETIREE SUMMER 19
