The all-villa Naka Island is one of Phuket’s most sought-after sanctuaries, right in line with its previous incarnation as an ultra-vegan fitness retreat. These days, the menu includes meat and you’re welcome to not work out—but it’s still a perfect destination if you’re looking for a little privacy, are uninterested in Patong’s nightlife and are content to spend your vacation in quiet reflection. The villas embrace the outdoors—we’re fans of the standalone bathrooms, connected to the bedrooms by latticed walkways—and are surrounded by lush gardens. In the evening, take a stroll through the resort to Z Bar, and toast the views of Phuket and Phang Nga Bay.
