One-Bedroom Wellness Villa with Private Pool
Truly a home away from home. Having travelled for weeks, we immediately felt right at home once we entered our Wellness Villa at Meliá Phuket Mai Khao. All we wanted to do was to jump right into our pools. You can choose to workout with the fitball and yoga mat provided in the villa or simply unwind in the outdoor bathtub with aroma salts.
Freshen up under the outdoor Vitamin C shower that helps boost your immune system. Before bedtime, turn on their ultrasonic essential-oil diffuser before you lay on their Tempur-Pedic pillows for a much needed sleep. Another favourite is their GermGuardian air purifier that improves air quality.
The Wellness Villa includes a 60 minute massage daily in the comfort of your own villa or at YHI Spa.
SASA Restaurant at Meliá Phuket Mai Khao is an all-day dining restaurant that serves healthy and freshly made breakfast and authentic Southeast Asian cuisine in the evening. Whether you are craving for Pad Thai, or ready to try authentic Phuket cuisine, SASA Restaurant has Thai salads, soups, curries, rice, noodles and more for you to choose from.
We absolutely recommend trying their Miang Kham - Chapru leaves wrapped with toasted coconut, peanuts, shallot, lime, ginger and chilli, Yam Som O - a salad of shredded pomelo and seared Hokkaido scallops seasoned with roasted chilli, lime and more, Phad Phak Kood - young Fern leaves stir fried with oyster sauce and garlic, and Pad Krapow Kung Mangon - Phuket lobster sauteed with holy basil, all of which were Chef’s selection.
Speak to the team in advance for any special requests.
The most popular spot for bites and sips within the hotel, Gaia Restaurant delights guests with its casual dining seating in front of the open kitchen, allowing guests to indulge in exceptional Mediterranean and fusion cuisines while enjoying a great cocktail selection.
Choose from salads, mediterranean platters, pasta, pizza, steak, burgers, and desserts - the list just goes on. Our picks are their Melon con Jamon, Capri, Clams & Mussels, A Picnic, Cioppino, Mai Khao Burger and Chocolate-Almond Brownie.
