Slightly south of Naithon Beach, this is definitely somewhere you should stay if you have an unlimited budget.
Trisara is nestled between two jungle-clad headlands and, with only 39 lodgings, offers an intimate, secluded experience. The private beach is guaranteed to be free from pesky vendors or non-guests — it's impossible for anyone else to access it. The management has carefully placed a floating jelly pier to protect the reef just off the beach making it very suitable for snorkelling.The suites and villas are the height of luxury and plasma TVs, spa bathtubs, and thick king-sized mattresses with sheets so soft you won't want to leave your bed all come standard. Every room faces the sea and the panoramic view from the teak pooldeck of each villa is difficult to beat. Resort facilities include a 45-metre salt water lap pool plus tennis courts, a library, a range of luxury yachts, and membership to the exclusive Blue Canyon golf course. Prices are astronomical, it goes without saying. Perhaps to save ink, the room rates are quoted in US dollars and subject to a further 18.7% in taxes and service charges. With these prices, you’d think the place would ooze pretension, but it’s quite the opposite, with a friendly and easy-going atmosphere.
