One should never get to choose between Baba Beach Club or Sri Panwa — but it’s rare for any holiday-goer to have a chance to experience the best of both properties all in one trip. But to choose which one should be your destination isn’t a matter of superiority. It’s about lifestyle, although both resorts share similar philosophy and excellence: relaxing experience, privacy, luxurious atmosphere and unmatched dining options.
Our weekend began at Baba Beach Club Phuket, more a matter of convenience rather than choice since this new property is only a stone’s throw away from Phuket International Airport. Located on a 42-Rai pristine oceanfront land of Natai beach with 180 meters of sandy beachfront. Located amongst tropical surroundings on Natai beach, this area is a golden gem rich in beauty with unforgettable charm.
Consisting of 16 one-bedroom villas in beach club style, 6 five-bedroom Baba Beachfront Villas which boast around 1,300 sqm of living space, 36 two-bedroom Baba Pool Villas, 104 units of one or two bedrooms Baba Suite, Baba Pool Suite and Baba Penthouse. The project features courtyard and ocean views with a custom design to create a unique, modern and cozy feel whilst maintaining the excellent service of a luxury resort.
With most of the suites facing the pool — where parties and live deejay performances take place, you could doubt how to achieve personal privacy in such environ. Yet, you’re not likely to be disturbed by the outside ongoings thanks to the cleverly designed architecture. And although chilling by the pool and inside the comfy atmosphere of your room is what staying at Baba Beach Club Phuket is meant to be, off-site activities such as the jogging trails, elephant trekking, snorkelling and scuba diving, yachting, and even golfing aren’t something out of reach.
And of course, a weekend getaway isn’t complete without a few sumptuous feasts. With the same old Vorasit Issara at the helm, you can be sure all the delicacies and flavourful delights we all adore at Sri Panwa are here at Baba Beach Club Phuket as well. The property offers two dining joints: Baba Beach Restaurant and Baba Iki. Baba Beach Restaurant boasts a panoramic views of the Andaman coast to complement your fine-dining spree. Created by the highly-trained sushi, teppanyaki and yakitori chefs at Baba Beach Club Phuket, Baba Iki features sumptuous plates that are focused on the freshest ingredients and authentic flavours from Japan. Sake Cocktail is another highlight, thanks to a special blend of the floral petals of sakura with sake, watermelon, lychee and lime juice, or the Yuzu Mojito, which is built upon a traditional sake flavour and enhanced with mint, brown sugar, soda, lime juice and finally adorned with a wedge of lime.
After a day and night of culinary delight and energising relaxation at Baba Beach Club Phuket, we’re off to the iconic Sri Panwa for another round of weekend discovery. Those familiar with this iconic property are aware that Sri Panwa’s ten-year existence means additional phases of development that keeps the resort fresh, and refreshing with something new to discover just whenever you visit.
This time, it’s The Habita that plays host to our one-night sojourn. Opened since November 2015, the Habita Suite is Sri Panwa’s latest property offering 20 new Pool Suites & 10 Penthouses with maximum privacy & superior service. With an Olympic size forest waterfall pool enveloped within a perfectly landscaped water garden. The highlight of the new phase is the beautifully designed roof in the shape of a leaf that blends in with the natural surrounding.
Ultimate privacy in luxurious atmosphere has always been the heart of Sri Panwa and The Habita delivers just as equal luxury and privacy as your beloved pool villas. Each room is spacious, and fully equipped with everything you’ll ever need with all Sri Panwa’s best dining delights only a stone’s throw away — meaning, no buggy calling needed — be it delicious cocktails at Baba Shishi Lounge, fine Chinese cuisine at Baba Chino and the most mouthwatering grills at Baba Hot Box.
