The Royal Phuket Yacht Club a Puravarna Resort is located on Nai Harn Beach at the southern tip of Phuket island. Phuket is named from the Malay word "Bukit" meaning mountain, and derives much of its former glory and wealth from tin production which dates back 500 years. Nowadays, Phuket is Thailand's largest tin producer, but is better known the world over for its beautiful beaches, crystal waters that contain colourful marine life, fascinating local culture and friendly people.
The flight from Bangkok to Phuket is only one hour, and direct flights also operate from Hong Kong, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Penang, Taipei, Australia and the US via Japan. The Resort is only 50 minutes from Phuket International Airport and 30 minutes from Phuket Town. Newly arrived guests will enjoy the drive to the Resort which will provide them glimpses of local residents still carrying out such occupations as rubber tree cultivation, coconut cultivation, fruit and rice farming and fishing, not to mention a view of some of the island's most famous beaches and nearby islands set against the green waters of the Andaman Sea.
The Royal Phuket Yacht Club a Puravarna Resort has a great deal to offer guests. In 1987 the Yacht Club held the first King's Cup Regatta in celebration of the 60th birthday of HM King Bhumibol Adulyadej.
There is a wide range of sports facilities at the Resort including a swimming pool, tennis courts, fitness centre and the newly opened Le Royal Spa. Cars are available for hire with or without a driver so guests can explore the island. Close to The Royal Phuket Yacht Club is Nai Harn Temple and Wat Sawang-Arom.
A trip up to Phuket town for shopping and wandering in the night market is easy, but the most popular excursions are to the neighbouring islands and adjoining beaches. Kata and Karon beaches are just around the bend and Chalong Bay is a few kilometres away. There are several islands to visit that are all easily accessible by boat.
