A secluded 250-metre stretch of Friendship Beach in Rawai is home to The Vijitt Resort Phuket, within gently-sloping gardens brimming with palms, fruit trees and tropical vegetation. The setting is beautiful with views across Chalong Bay, and this laid back beach resort provides a tranquil retreat for families to enjoy the outdoor life to the fullest.

An all-villa resort, the exclusive accommodation at The Vijitt Resort stands alone within the 18-acre grounds to provide the utmost privacy for guests. Many offer private pools and picturesque views across the bay from private terraces. Interiors are stylish and contemporary, with floor-to-ceiling French windows, natural materials and subtle fabrics. Deluxe Villas contain a large bedroom and an extra bed can be provided for one child. For larger families, Two Bedroom Pool Villas offer the most comfortable option. With all the space available, in-villa dining allows guests to dine in the comfort of their own living quarters. The two restaurants are alternative options, with Thai cuisine prominent on the menu. Priding itself on its eco-friendly mentality, The Vijitt Resort emphasises the use of fresh, local produce, therefore you can be assured that your family is being fed the best.

About Thailand

An Expressions tailor-made holiday to Thailand is the chance to explore a stunning part of the world. More people visit Thailand than any other country in Southeast Asia. With beautiful beaches and stunning cuisine, historic towns and colourful cities, it’s not hard to see why. Throw in national parks full of wildlife, rainforests and mountains to take the breath away, as well as a welcome so warm you can’t fail to be beguiled, and Thailand is a country you could spend a whole life exploring without growing tired. Bangkok is the country’s spectacular gateway, and what an introduction. A modern giant with gleaming shopping centres and dazzling nightlife, the City of Angels is also a place of timeless wonder, with ancient markets and temples, centuries-old palaces and monks in saffron robes. Thrusting, modern capital it may be, but everywhere the city is interwoven with a devout Buddhist tranquillity and warmth. In the north, Chaingrai province – aka the Golden Triangle – offers a wealth of river tours and hilltribe treks, ruined cities and cookery holidays, with Chiang Mai its stunning capital. In the south, idyllic islands are sprinkled into the Andaman Sea, with Koh Samui and Phuket merely the best known. Sliding down the coastal tail are the evergreen limestone islands of Ko Tao and Kho Phi Phi Don, filled with tall palms angling over pearlescent sand. With idyllic beaches in the south and mountainous rainforest in the north, Thailand is blessed with a rich variety of landscapes – and a range of attractions and activities to match. Whether you’re here for bone-white beaches or cookery schools, snorkelling and diving or hillwalking and kayaking, Thailand has it all.
