Luxury resort Trisara creates reimagined encounters with heritage

The Thai family-owned luxury resort Trisara relaunched in December 2016 after completing extensive renovations. Committed to constantly reimagine how guests encounter its rich local heritage, the award-winning all-pool-villa beach resort introduces new villa categories, a holistic spa, unique restaurants and innovative personalized guest services.

Nestled in a “managed jungle”, Trisara’s 39 hotel villas and 20 larger residences overlooking an exclusive beach have offered an unmatched guest experience since opening  in 2004. Thick tropical vegetation surrounds each villa to provide guests with utmost privacy. “Trisara’s relaunch will draw on our latest product design  and service innovations to bring guests ever closer to our natural and cultural heritage,” said Mr. Narong Pattamasaevi, Chairman of Montara Hospitality Group, owner and operator of Trisara.

Each new guest touchpoint introduced by Trisara’s relaunch reflects his vision. The new Ocean View Pool Junior Suites are perched on Trisara’s highest vantage point and feature a reflection pool that seems to float atop the resort’s manicured jungle.

Beautiful lime-washed teak wood and Thai silk create an ambiance that is unmistakably Thai, elegant and timeless. On the same level, the larger Signature Ocean View Pool Suites offer an oversized king bed, ensuite bathroom, a living and dining area with convertible sofa bed, as well as an expansive deck with a 9 meter infinity pool.

All suites overlook Trisara’s private beach and the turquoise waters of the Andaman Sea. Trisara’s new multi-bedroom residences bring together families & friends through wish-granting moments created by dedicated Thai service staff who prepare meals from the fully equipped kitchens and create memorable celebrations using the villas’ expansive teak decks and manicured gardens. The newly renovated and renamed Jara Spa takes guests on a journey of balanced wellbeing.

Its holistic 5 pillar philosophy is inspired by the century old Ficus tree that envelops the spa, and the believe that by nourishing  the roots, engaging with the earth, providing strength to  the core and taking care of the inner self, outward beauty will ultimately blossom. Tailor-made “Discoveries” allow guests to achieve total wellbeing by addressing some or all of the 5 pillars.

For example, the “Jara Local Discovery” includes a Thai massage lesson, Samunpai scrub & wrap with local Thai herbs, a Thai thermal massage, Thai stretching and a walking meditation historically practiced by Buddhist monks. PRU is a new dining experience that seeks to elevate the farm-to-table-movement. It is a tribute to the unique terroir of the Andaman region. Grown on its own farm “Pru Jumpa”, foraged locally or sourced through a community of local farmers, fishermen and purveyors, each ingredient tells a unique story as it is transformed into original and inventive cuisine by Chef de Cuisine Jim Ophorst, Thailand’s contestant in the San Pellegrino Young Chef 2016 competition.

Seafood at Trisara has also been relaunched to give guests an authentic taste of the destination’s culinary culture. The new menu is inspired by traditional local “mama” recipes passed through the generations, offered in a relaxed, ocean front setting. Each villa is assigned to a dedicated resort host who connects with guests prior to arrival and creates tailor-made experiences throughout their stay. Outside the resort, guests can discover local secrets & personalities during a personalized, hosted experience by their resort host.

The new guest experiences create memorable encounters with the destination’s local heritage for guests to share with loved ones. Trisara’s DDEN, the world’s first resort production studio with professional photographers and videographers helps guests tell their own stories through novel digital formats, including photo, video and virtual reality.

“With our new facilities and guest experiences we have reimagined the nurturing of our heritage, both in terms  of the natural environment and local values,” added Mr. Narong. “Trisara has always been recognized as a luxury destination. The relaunch elevates our brand promise by creating opportunities for our guests to encounter our rich heritage in ways yet unimagined.” Trisara’s recent awards include:
