Heaven is in a valley, in the form of a much-needed oasis tucked away in a valley with 360 degree lush mountain views.
I arrived at The Bell in Phuket while it was raining again (I personally love the rain, but for those who don't, I suggest avoiding monsoon season) and I felt like the muffled rain highlighted the extraordinary peace and tranquility I found only at this resort my whole trip. The Thailand rainstorms I experienced were heavy but surprisingly short--each lasted only about half an hour. I was always assured of pool time. The villas at The Bell have private infinity pools, so you can sleep, swim, and relax in your villa. You can also get in-villa Thai massages and Thai cooking classes, both of which I happily indulged in.
The decor at The Bell was as beautiful as its vibes. The one time we felt like leaving our amazing villa, Natalie and I had a drink at Zhong, its all-in-one restaurant, lounge, and concierge.
Even though The Bell was isolated from the world, and our villa was isolated within it, we were provided with around-the-clock care and attention. The Bell was such a welcome rest from the craziness of city-hopping from Hong Kong to Bangkok.
What I'm wearing:
Andrea Iyamah swim.
Sheek Shat iridescent prism glasses.
