Travel review: The Naka Phuket

OVER THE EDGE. Hidden in an ancient valley on the western edge of Phuket, The Naka is renowned Bangkok-based architect Duangrit Bunnag’s most daring hotel to date.

The tropical hideaway, with 94 glass-built villas cantilevering out from the mountainside to give endless panoramas of the sparkling Andaman Sea. With an outdoor pool attached to each of the secluded living spaces, guests have all the privacy they need to enjoy the breathtaking views. Fresh market produce is served at the hotel’s three restaurants, including The Nava, which sits along a natural watercourse.
