Amanpuri is one of Ampersand's Top 10 Beach Hotels
The Amanpuri was the first of the Aman properties; the name means 'place of peace' in Sanskrit. The hotel is situated in a sheltered coconut grove on a peninsula leading down to a crescent shaped beach overlooking the captivating Andaman Sea. The pavilions and villas have been constructed sympathetically with exposed multi-tiered roof-lines, understated, air-conditioned interiors, outside salas or private dining decks and these are complemented by the midnight blue pools. The pavilions are set along the walkway, interspersed in the coconut groves or over looking the ocean depending on the category. The 30 villa homes are adjacent to the resort, almost hidden by coconut palms, each one consists of two to six separate bedrooms decorated with Thai furnishings, art and antiques. The Villas also enjoy a private pool plus living and dining Thai salas. A live-in maid and cook attend to all guests' needs, including the preparation of Thai cuisine in a private kitchen.
