in Phuket Town

A chic revamp has transformed this 1919 Sino-Portuguese building into a fabulous multiuse space strung around a leafy courtyard. Book in for excellent, authentic Phuketian food in a stylish setting – mŏo hong (braised pork), crab-meat curries and ginger-flower fish curries are favourites. The bar mixes brilliant, original artisan cocktails (try the Six Sense; 280B). Upstairs, the palm-patterned spa has Thai massages (250B).
