SALA Phuket Mai Khao Beach Resort 

Find your happy place

A stylish and contemporary retreat on a quiet stretch of a glorious golden beach.

SALA Phuket Mai Khao Beach Resort is the epitome of sophistication, tucked away in a remote area of Phuket. Its location on the golden Mai Khao Beach, the longest beach in Phuket at almost seven miles long, is its winning feature. It’s part of the Sirinat National Park, which encompasses quiet beaches and a small mangrove forest rich with wildlife. And the best part of Mai Khao Beach is its yearly visitors – sea turtles who nest on the beach from November to February.

Why we love SALA Phuket Mai Khao Beach Resort

  • It’s in Sirinat National Park, which has beaches where turtles nest, mangroves where kingfishers dart and pristine coral reefs

  • You can savour the tranquillity of the coastal setting with options such as yoga on the sand and a 100 Candle beachfront dinner

  • The spa is a sleek haven with an appealing list of plant-based treatments to detoxify, scrub and massage away all your stresses

  • Its stylish dining options include dinner on the rooftop, where a reflection pool flows around each booth for a tranquil experience
