Apartment Location: Bangtao beach and Surin

Bangtao

The location of Tranquil Villa apartment at Bangtao Beach Gardens is a mere 200 metres from the southern end of Bangtao Beach. Still a traditional fishing village, the resort lies on the west coast of the island of Phuket. It is set around the magnificent 4 mile long cresent shaped bay, with pure white sand fringed with Casuarina trees. Dry season swimming is excellent, and there’s never a shortage of sand for sunbathing. Long tail boats can be hired for a short trip to waters with superb marine life and vibrant coral reefs, ideal for snorkelling.

There are a variety of luxury 5 star hotels and beach restaurants which line the bay, where you can dine as you watch the sun setting. Or by day, relax and enjoy a full range of theraputic massages.

Bangtao village also offers plenty of traditional Thai dining as well as international food.

Laguna Resort

At the northern end of the bay lies the Laguna Resort, a series of luxury hotels set around lagoons. There is also a golf course, horse riding centre, shopping and water sports complex.

Surin

A short walk from Bangtao Beach Gardens in a southerly direction takes you to the smaller resort of Surin. It boasts a sandy cove, popular chic cocktail bars and romantic candlelit restaurants lining the beach and surrounding the hotel – and perfect for watching the sun set.

Exploring the Island

Bangtao’s convenient location means that a 20 minute taxi journey will take you to the livelier resort of Patong, or the capital Phuket Town, offering a choice of traditional and Thai shopping. The airport is a 30 minute ride away, and international schools and hospitals are also within easy reach.
