'THE PEARL OF NAITHON' RESORT completed in January09 is an exclusive 5 STAR RESORT facing the Andaman Sea and located at the northern end of Naithon Beach. Naithon is conveniently situated only a short 10 minutes drive from Phuket International Airport yet the tropical hillside which surrounds Nai Thon Beach ensures total freedom from aircraft noice. Naithon boasts to having one of the best beaches on the sought after West Coast of Phuket. It is an idyllic location surrounded on all sides by tropical landscaped hills which form part of the Sirinath National Park. The Resort is approached via the scenic Nai Thon Beach road with The Resorts frontage providing direct access on to this jewel of a beach. The feature of Nai Thon is an eye catching curved bay sheltered by a nearby island. Nai Thon´s fir tree lined 400m beach of SOFT WHITE SAND offers a perfect place for relaxation/swimming. It is perfectly situated for golf with four world class golf Clubs (total 6 courses) within 15min.drive
Golf: GOLF MUST BE A TOTAL EXPERIENCE!
The greens must be in good shape and the layout exciting on the course you are playing. Enough of challenging golf holes, so you don´t forget the course as - One among the others…..
ON PHUKET YOU WILL GET IT ALL!!
You have 7 Golf courses on Phuket and all off them are in an excellent condition. Loch Palm,Red Mountain, Blue Canyon (2 courses), Laguna Golf Resort,Mission Hills and Phuket Golf & Country Club.
My two favourites are Blue Canyon and Mission Hillls.
Mission Hills (designed by Jack Nicklaus) nestled amongst a coastal mangrove forest and rubber plantations.
Blue Canyon (Canyon Course) is at the moment the no.1 choice for golfers visiting Phuket. As Fred Couples
said '17th is one of the best par 3 in the world.
FROM THE APARTMENT, IT IS ONLY A 15 TO 40MIN DRIVE TO THESE TO GREAT EXPERIENCES!
The average greenfee on the islands 7 courses is between 2.500 baht to 4.500 baht. I strongly recommend that you play
early in the morning.
It is mandatory on all golf courses to rent a caddie (female) when you play. You pay the caddie about 200-300 Baht and It is normal to pay a tip of about the same amount.
I wish you wonderful days of Golf, but don´t forget that the greens might be faster than you are used to.
