great resort in thailand

Indigo Pearl. Nai Yang Beach and National Park Phuket

I stayed here in February 09 – an experience as rare as an indigo pearl – which is evidently very, very rare!

The architecture and the ‘found art’ is inspired by Phukets’ mining past and built in an old tin mining area.outdoor bath indigo pearl

Attention to detail stunning: toothpicks in a bolt-shaped container, blackened stainless steel and brass rivets; metal tables or metal covered in the ‘tin mine’ restaurant with cutlery open-ended spanner, staff aprons like blacksmiths one

my breakfast is being prepared -- yummy
my breakfast is prepared — yummy

Large open walled restaurant and no matter how many in it seemed spacious with lots of seating areas off the ‘main’ one  different theme each night as well as the usual fare

The pools are salt water, a great conservation on an island that has little fresh water.
