The Naka Island

Phuket, Thailand

Start the new year off right with a Southeast Asian tropical escape. Cradled along Thailand’s southern peninsula on an island in the Andaman Sea, Naka Island resort is accessible only by speedboat, yet it’s just 25 minutes from the Phuket airport. Each of the resort’s 67 villas is nestled amid coconut groves and fragrant gardens. The gated Royal Horizon Pool Villa, pictured here, sits on a hilltop and has its own infinity pool, outdoor sunken tub, open-air bathroom, sauna and steam room.
