Celebrating Valentine’s Day in Phuket? There’re only two rules you’ll need to abide by. Number one – don’t forget to indulge in the mandatory spa treatment. And two, round out the night with a delicious feast for two…
Relax and rejuvenate with a decadent spa treat…
Indulge in pampering massages, elixirs, wraps and more in the gorgeous open air treatment rooms at Anantara Spa. Lovebirds may choose from a selection of couples treatment like the delightful Romantic Floral Hideaway (that’s 210 minutes of bliss made up of a foot ritual, scrub, milk bath, shower, oil massage, facial and refreshments), or opt for individual treatments like the restorative Lullaby Sleep Therapy (a sleeping bath, shower, tea time, serenity massage and refreshment adds up to 115 minutes of relaxation).
Outfitted with 16 commodious treatment suites and 5 outdoor Thai-style salas, Mandara Spa promises to provide an experience that’s unbelievably luxurious. Picked the suite? You’re in for a treat; the treatment suites feature terrazzo plunge pools, private showers, beautiful vanities and charming bale areas, and open out to an outdoor garden and herbal steam room. Share the joy with your significant other by indulging in the 4 hour Romantic Getaway Couple package; if you prefer traditional treatments, perhaps the Javanese lulur treatment may be your cup of tea. Mandara Spa offers plenty of services, like facials, body scrubs, manicures and pedicures, for ladies to doll up before their special night out.
A treatment at The Spa promises to be a feast for the senses. Step into the sala lounge areas, and you’ll set sight on finely-appointed interiors infused with a subtle Thai charm. Head out, and you’ll find sparkling outdoor pools at your disposal. There’s a good selection of treatments perfect for “you + him”, like the Romantic Harmony, Royal Thai Experience and Wellbeing. Round out your treatment by signing up for a purifying scrub or cleansing facial.
Dinner Date for Two…
Planning a Valentine-perfect meal? You can’t go wrong with romantic Italian, so make a date at the plush La Gritta. It’ll be a pity if you don’t do so, for Chef Patrizia from Rome has drawn up a sumptuous Valentine’s Day menu made up of tasty servings of grilled tiger prawns, crabmeat ravioli, snow fish, Australian beef tenderloin medallions, and a spectacular red lemon and ginger sorbet. Yum! Cocktails and a gift set from Clarins cosmetics are perks included in this delicious dinner package treat.
Not a fan of celebrating Valentine’s Day? That’s fine – not everyone’s a fan of the commercialised hype that this event tends to generate. If you’d like to do something special still, perhaps joining in the Culinary Cinema at Kata Rocks will float your boat. It’s set on 26th February, which means that you’ll avoid having to jostle with the crowds for a coveted table in a fancy restaurant. Best of all, you’ll get to enjoy a culinary surprise – without having to undergo the hassle of planning for it. As part of the experience, all guests are given a tray containing numbered mystery boxes. Look forward to sampling a thoughtfully-designed tasting menu that is paired with a specific scene, environment or emotion in the movie.
Want a sizzling Valentine’s Day night? You’ll have to start the evening on a perfect note, and a good way to do so is to tuck into a meal at Sizzle. The focus here is on grills, barbecued meats, steaks and seafood, making this an ideal restaurant for meat lovers and diners with hearty appetites. Set in an elevated position, the restaurant offers striking views of the coastlines of Patong and Paradise Bay. We advise arriving in the early hours of the evening, so that you’ll get to enjoy a magical sunset show. Making reservations in advance is highly recommeded.
If wining and dining in a lively, bustling atmosphere in the heart of Bangla Road sounds appealing, head on over to Higher Restaurant and Bar for a satisfying dinner or post-dinner drinks. An extensive menu provides ample choices; you’ll need to decide if you want international, Thai, Japanese or Italian tonight. The restaurant’s prime rooftop spot means that you’ll wine and dine against a scenic backdrop made up of twinkling city lights and the rugged outlines of the surrounding mountains.

Enjoy an elegant dinner at the stunning Su-Tha Restaurant. A dinner for two comes with wine, as well as exotic fare like beetroot ravioli amuse bouche, forest mushroom soup, rosella sorbet, grass fed tenderloin, fish and vegetable papillote, berries mille feuille, and petit fours.
When it comes to a romantic treat, a dinner for two in your private villa is hard to beat. Indoors or outdoors? Take your pick; you get to choose from taking a poolside dinner, al fresco meal in the picturesque garden, or feasting in a grand and spacious dining area.
