A Gem of an Indigo Pearl
The 227 room Indigo Pearl hotel was retrofitted three years ago by the mighty architect and designer Bill Bensley (his previous properties featured in Citylife include Four Seasons Chiang Mai and Four Seasons Tented Camp Chiang Rai, Hotel de la Paix Siem Reap, among many others).
Inspired by the property owner’s tin-mining past, the hotel is a tribute to both the island’s tin mining industry as well as the unleashed creativity of Bensley and his team. This resort, mere minutes drive from Phuket airport, sprawls over a huge seaside property, offering guests all sorts of entertainment and facilities so that many would be hard pressed to find reason to leave the resort during their stay. Three separate swimming pools come with cascading waterfalls, built-in bar, Jacuzzi beds (one is adults only), a cooking school, a charming kid’s club, fitness centre and water sports will keep you and your family busy, though the lush tropical gardens and exquisitely designed rooms make for a perfect setting for a private interlude.
Most of all, Indigo Pearl is fun. Abstract sculptures, as well as creatively adapted room features are created from century-old tin mining machinery and the use of polished cement, corrugated tin roofs, steel beams all juxtaposed delightfully with luxurious silks, plush outdoor bathtubs and other decadent features.
The dining is second to none, and guests have the choice to dine in the plush Rivet Grill, where cosy leather seats offer near-privacy in the sexily-lit room, Black Ginger Thai restaurant which floats upon a lotus pond, the Underground Café poolside bar, Tin Mine international restaurant, and on soft cushions in Cotemer by the beach. Evening entertainments include the breezy outdoors Rebar with live music as well as the popular Tongkah Tin Syndicate, pool hall and bar which pay homage to the owner’s family’s long history with tin mining in Phuket.
Door to door, from your home in Chiang Mai to Indigo Pearl can take as little as three and a half hours, making this a natural, and easy, getaway for your friends and family.
