The Top 10 New Resorts for 2003: JW Marriott Phuket Resort and Spa, Thailand

The Editors

This is the first resort on beautiful Mai Khao Beach, adjacent to Sirinat Marine National Park and a sea turtle nesting area. It is situated on 27 acres of lush tropical gardens, freshwater ponds, two magnificent swimming pools, and a coastal wetland preserve.

Spacious one-bedroom suites offer large balconies and floor-to-ceiling windows with commanding ocean views. The oversize mother-of-pearl and black granite bathrooms are drenched in natural light and offer separate "his and her" grooming areas and a huge terrazzo deep-soak tub.

Choose among a diverse range of leisure pursuits: Luxuriate in the Mandara Spa; snorkel or dive in the warm waters of the Andaman Sea; hit a few tennis balls; go elephant trekking; take a stroll in the beautiful surrounding countryside; or golf at the nearby 36-hole championship golf course, known as the best in Asia. Order a romantic breakfast or dinner to savor in the covered sala, while the waves lap the shore just feet from your balcony.

The spectacular Royal Suite includes several Thai-style pavilions and offers its own swimming pool, Jacuzzi, and personal butler service.

Suites from $850 to $3,500 per room, per night.
