From the lush mountainous terrain to the edges of sparkling beaches, Phuket is home to some of the world’s most beautiful infinity pools that not only offer a refreshing plunge but also 360-degree views that will take your breath away.
At these stunning spots, you can immerse yourself as Thailand’s warm tropical breeze rustles the palm fronds nearby and gaze out as the azure Andaman Sea melts into the horizon.
Dip your toes into the mesmerizing allure of the island’s finest infinity pools – the epitome of luxury, style and scenic beauty. The only question is: which will you dive into first?
COMO Point Yamu
Perched on the tip of Cape Yamu, COMO Point Yamu offers an idyllic retreat on Phuket’s east coast. Its headline act is a 100-metre long infinity pool with three different depths.
It’s as perfect for serious swimmers as it is for those who just want to take a refreshing dip in the afternoon heat while enjoying a cool beverage from the nearby bar.
Sleek and expansive, the pool appears to merge seamlessly with the calm Phang Nga Bay beyond. Spacious, plush sun loungers line the pool, providing prime spots to soak up the sun or relax in the shade.
Inside the resort, it’s just as appealing. Italian designer Paola Navone has created an interior that is both contemporary and connected to Thai culture. The bold use of aquamarine reflects the surrounding sea, while vibrant burnt oranges echo the local Buddhist robes.
Touches of Phuket’s Peranakan heritage give COMO Point Yamu a distinctly local feel, and the infinity pool experience is nothing short of unforgettable – not to mention the ideal spot to watch the sunset.
Where to go: COMO Point Yamu, 225 Pa Klok, Thalang District, Phuket 83110, Thailand (+66 76 360 100).
A 45-minute journey from Phuket transports you to a realm of unparalleled natural beauty at Six Senses Yao Noi, a luxurious retreat set against the spectacular backdrop of Phang Nga Bay.
The island resort’s pièce de résistance are the private infinity pools that come with each villa, showcasing the very essence of indulgent tranquility.
Designed to blend into the landscape, each villa nestles into lush tropical greenery, perched like an extravagant treehouse. Each private pool appears to blend seamlessly with the blues of the bay or the verdant backdrop of the forest.
Whether your retreat overlooks the dramatic bay or is tucked in with romantic forest views, the infinity pool experience remains sublime.
Six Senses Yao Noi is more than just a resort – it’s where infinity pools and natural beauty converge for the ultimate luxury experience.

These stunning infinity pools are the ideal spot for a leisurely swim or simply lounging by the water’s edge, basking in the warmth of the Thai sun. With each pool offering its own distinct vibe, you’re sure to find a favourite spot to soak, splash and repeat.
Positioned on a secluded slice of the usually bustling Patong Beach, Amari Phuket overlooks the sea, and while it may not feature traditional infinity pools, its three free-form swimming pools come pretty close.
Some of its pools have been designed to mimic the gentle curves of water, delivering a unique swimming experience that flows with the contours of the land.
The feeling of swimming in a lagoon, combined with the stunning backdrop of the Andaman Sea, makes these spaces feel like they’re merging with the ocean’s horizon – a near-infinity experience that’s truly refreshing.
