This 33-villa resort opened on Phuket's north-west coast in 2004. The villas are set in 40 acres of forest, each with its own 10-metre infinity pool. Business and tech-savvy travellers are catered for with iPods in the library and 37-inch plasma televisions in the rooms with Bose surround-sound and free broadband. Hedonistic heaven.
