Beyond Samui

Phuket is the largest island in The Kingdom of Thailand. At 543 square kilometres, it’s roughly the same size as Singapore and is just over an hour by plane from Bangkok, Singapore and Kuala Lumpur, with daily connections to most major Asian airports and beyond.

The deep blue sea, white sandy beaches, green lush tropical rainforests, vibrant underwater world and wonderful climate entice many individuals to experience these exquisite nature-given gifts. Additionally, hundreds of islands are accessible by boat from Phuket, many of them uninhabited, many of them forested and fringed with spectacular coral reefs.

Phuket’s beauty and climate plays a significant role in its more recent incarnation as an international destination for those who stay a week or whom are looking or permanent base or place to spend their retirement or interested to invest in luxury property. Phuket’s developed infrastructure offers outstanding facilities for tourists and residents alike. Phuket International Airport, world class hotels, resorts, spas and restaurants, championship golf courses, marinas, international schools and hospitals all contribute to the truly multi-faceted way of life in Phuket.
