Surin Beach is one of Phuket’s most coveted destinations for sun-seekers, with its 800 metres of white sand, stylish beach clubs and clear waters. With no hotels on the beach, Surin retains a peaceful ambiance by day, while the occasional beach club party heats things up after dark.
Less than 30 minutes’ from Phuket airport, Surin lies along Phuket’s west coast between the popular beaches of Kamala
and Bang Tao
. Swimming, sunset cocktails, dining and sunbathing are the main activities here, while decent waves kick up for surfers from May through to October. During these months the waters may be off limits to swimmers if conditions are too rough. Rocky headlands at both ends of the beach offer snorkellers a place to explore, while the sparkling Laem Singh beach – a hidden-away cove – is just a short walk away to the north.
Sprinkled over the hills around Surin is a collection of luxury villas for short term rental, where celebrities, royals and holidaymakers alike enjoy peace, privacy and premium service. Villas in Surin feature magnificent sea and sunset views and all the modern comforts required for a relaxed and lavish holiday. Found within secured hillside estates, the villas offer complete privacy yet easy access to the island’s attractions.
Elite Havens’ villas in Surin offer a range of designs from Thai contemporary to ultra modern accommodation, but all offer sea views plus fantastic indoor and outdoor spaces that highlight their tropical settings. High quality furnishings and facilities throughout offer ease and comfort: beautiful swimming pools, Western kitchens, modern entertainment rooms, sumptuous living areas and bedrooms, spacious terraces and more.
A full complement of staff including a villa manager, private chef and housekeepers provide customised service for all aspects of your Surin villa stay. A skilled chef is on hand for those keen to delve into Thai cuisine, and guests’ personal preferences are happily catered to – just chat through your requirements with the chef or your villa manager. Exploring the many things to do in Phuket is a breeze: the villa manager will be pleased to help arrange tours, private chauffer service or reservations for spa treatments, dining and golf. Our villas also make fantastic venues for special events with family and friends.
Surin Beach is lined with casuarina and palm trees, and just a few steps from the sand are several restaurants ranging from simple seafood or pizza shacks to some of Phuket’s most stylish beach clubs.
More dining choices, including some great Sunday brunch spots, lie within a short walk of the beach, and the surrounding village is home to some surprisingly upscale shops selling tropical fashions, art, antiques and souvenirs. Surin remains a fairly relaxed place after dark, but there are some excellent venues that will satisfy your thirst for cocktails and wine both on the beach and off.
Surin is an ideal base for exploring Phuket, with golf courses, spas, marinas, wakeboarding and other leisure activities all within easy reach. With so many spectacular islands and the limestone-studded Phang Nga Bay close by, yachting or speedboat charters are a must. World-class diving and snorkelling destinations, including Raya and the Similan islands, feature soft white sands and colourful underwater scenes. Drive or hike around Phuket’s lush interior and discover its parks, waterfalls and rich agricultural heritage. Wander the streets of Phuket Town and discover a thriving local food scene and historic Old Town with restored Sino-Portuguese buildings housing chic dining spots and shops.
