EDITOR’S INDEPENDENT REVIEW:The Surin enjoys rare tranquillity on a stunningly beautiful, little-seen beach on Phuket's mid-west coast. Pansea Beach, where The Surin has a shady 200 metre beachfront, is cut off from popular Surin Beach by a small headland, giving resorts guests one of the most peaceful tropical beaches, shared with only one other resort, the exclusive Amanpuri. The Surin began its life way back in 1983 as the Pansea Resort, one of the first beach resorts on Phuket which gave it the opportunity to secure one of the most stunningly beautiful beaches on the island. The fact that it is cut off from Surin beach and there is little public access makes this one of the most private beaches on Phuket’s west coast, and one of the few that has hardly changed due to development.

The entire resort has been redeveloped and modernized, and now its luxurious cottages are set along elevated walkways running among the coconut palms, with trees and lush foliage spilling out everywhere. Most have ocean views and immediate beach access.

The Surin offers elegant dining from its elevated restaurant with grand sunset and ocean views. Also enjoy beach BBQs with your toes in the sand. Western and Thai cuisine is available, along with fresh seafood and imported prime meats.

The beach and lounge bars of The Surin offer idyllic environments for relaxation with grand views of the Andaman Sea. The aptly named Beach Restaurant opens only in the cool of the evening, during the high season months, with tables and chairs right in the sand. It specializes in seafood.

Thai dance accompanies dinner on many evenings in the Lomtalay Thai Restaurant, which has both indoor and outdoor seating. The Surin also has a spa with massage and a range of treatments, plus a gymnasium. The resort caters to families, and has a children’s pool plus baby-sitting and child care services.

The island runs 48 km (34 miles) north to south, and 21 km (16 miles) east to west and is connected to Phang Nga province by a motor bridge in the north. Phuket is surrounded by the azure Andaman Sea, which joins the Indian Ocean to the south. Aside from its crystal watery surroundings and powder white beaches, Phuket is an island blessed with the natural beauty of mountains and valleys with the Khao Phra Thaeo National Park protecting more than 20 square kilometers of rainforest.
