A romantic beachfront boutique resort in Pranburi offers the best in oriental service, hospitality and tropical surrounds.
Opened a year ago in Pranburi, an up-and-coming resort destination 30 km from Hua Hin, Purimuntra Resort & Spa has only 19 oriental-style rooms. Sleep, eat, love and relax in a tropical setting, on a private beach, the fresh sea breeze wafting through every room. Yes, Purimuntra takes you personally.
Finding an effective balance between modern-style arch-itecture and a sense of oriental mystique, expect a cosy and chic atmosphere at Purimuntra, but it’s the tranquil location which will blow you away: warm ocean, coconut trees, private beach flanked by a swimming pool. A recent listing in Unseen Paradise II puts the resort in Thailand’s top 50.
The resort’s Beach Suites encourage a romantic vacation experience: these are luxury private beach getaways with 270-degree sea views, designed to blend in with their natural surroundings, and which open out to an outdoor private Jacuzzi and balcony. Flop out on your sun bed, and there’s nothing between you and the sand and sea.
Further rejuvenation takes place at Muntra Spa, where natural, homemade spa products will make you feel earthy and special. Opt for a traditional Thai massage, or perhaps some foot reflexology, aromatherapy, a Thai coffee & honey scrub, or mixed fruit & veggie scrub. Further sustenance can be imbibed at Palm Tree Restaurant, which specialises in seafood prepared in a Thai or European style.
All in all, a romantic treat. And, they’ll give you a special discount if you tell them you read about the resort here.
