Somewhere In The Thai Jungle

If you’ve ever wanted to spend the night in the exotic, isolated and opulent south-east Asian jungle, explore Villa Zolitude Resort & Spa #villalife.

When I think of Phucket, I imagine, (as we most do) bright white beaches and translucent waters with shimmering coral reef and sparkling zebrafish. I picture the iconic Phi Phi islands jutting from underneath turquoise waves, the cloudless blue skies and humming sound of long tail boats.

But with this beauty, comes popularity, and retreating in the jungles of Thailand can offer a type of luxury and unforgettable privacy that these hot spots can no longer provide.

Staying at this 2 story pool villa was a dream. It was a temporary sanctuary in the jungle, tucked away from the hustle and bustle of tourist attractions.

I felt an endless sense of calm as we entered the property, greeted with smiles and lavish wildlife. I had just come back from the Elephant Sanctuary and needed a place to hide from the blazing afternoon sun.

The interiors of the villa were beautifully decorated, accessorized with traditional tapestries with surrounding room length wide windows and two floors of bliss.

Spending most of my time by the deep blue infinity pool, that spilled and overlooked onto the quiet hillside with lots of music & a few glasses of wine.

I heard a blend of bird & insect orchestras at all times of the day;  whether in the afternoon, evening and morning hours, we never felt alone.

 

As night approached I ordered in villa dining to celebrate another amazing day in Thailand, the service was exquisite.

At sunrise, I was woken by the sounds of the jungle surrounding me and I traced the sun with my eyes until it was flooding our room.

Before saying goodbye, I stopped by their spa for a full aromatic body massage (which was excellent). I don’t have photos from those moments, but the spa had an open concept setting surrounded by small ponds and lilly pads, buzzing with the sound of dragonfly wings and crickets.
