The island of Phuket in Thailand has consolidated its status as a premier tourist destination. If you are visiting the island and desire Phuket luxury hotels an excellent choice would be the Anantara Phuket Layan Resort & Spa. This attractive hotel offers appealing accommodations as well as a host of contemporary amenities.

No visit to Phuket would be complete without an excursion to the much admired Phromthep Cape. Considered to be amongst the island’s most picturesque and attractive locations, Phromthep Cape is frequented by tourists and holidaymakers from all around the globe. The focus of the attention is the hill which stands on the southernmost extremity of the cape. From the summit of this hill it is possible to enjoy sensational views of the sunset, which is what most of the tourists desire to witness. This natural wonder will undoubtedly linger in the memory of the beholder as an unforgettable highlight of his or her visit to Phuket.

However Phromthep Cape also has other attractions that will capture the interest of the visitor. One of these is a handsome lighthouse that displays intriguing maritime artefacts of historical interest, and also provides sensational panoramic views over the surrounding areas. This lighthouse cum museum is pleasantly air-conditioned and visitors should take the opportunity to ascend to the balcony from where they will obtain the best views. From here you will be able to glimpse several of the outlying islands which appear resplendent from this point.

However if you linger at Phromthep Cape after darkness falls and almost all of the tourists have departed you will experience a very different aspect of the location. The site becomes tranquil and quiet, with gentle sea breezes wafting in the air. You may choose to enjoy a delectable meal at the local restaurant which offers splendid night time views over the nearby beaches. Enjoying dinner at this magical setting under the glistening night sky will undoubtedly be an experience to savour.
