Read here my Luxury Hotel Review Sukko Spa Resort Phuket.
Sukko Spa Resort Phuket is located in Chalong area in Phuket, in the south of Thailand. Phuket town is 10 km away and to the popular Patong beach it is a 45 minutes drive depending on the traffic. The international airport of Phuket is 40 kilometres north. The resort offers a free scheduled shuttle service to Central Festival Phuket, a large shopping mall in the heart of Phuket.
There is actually not that much to do in the area around the hotel. If you are looking for a beach vacation, Sukko Resort might not be the hotel of your choice. However, when you are looking for absolute relaxation and outstanding spa treatments you will feel like in heaven.
At Sukko Spa Resort Phuket there are 24 Jacuzzi Spa Villas with a size of 75 square meters each. The highlights of the villas are a private Jacuzzi, a Spa area, a steam room, a sun-roof rain shower and a wooden veranda. It is fully equipped with everything you might need such as coffee and tea making facilities, refrigerator, bath supply and hair dryer. All villas are surrounded by lush tropical greenery. A true oasis in Phuket apart from mass tourism and hectic life.
Sukko Cultural Spa
Sukko Cultural Spa has 50 standard treatment rooms for guests and outside visitors. You can choose between 14 spa packages from 2 to 3 hours. When you are however looking for a special experience I highly recommend you the Jantra Private Spa in your own private spa villa with changing room, steam room, whirl pool, rain shower and lavatory.
During my stay at Sukko Spa Resort Phuket I tried an aromatic body massage with warm aromatic oil. When I arrived at the villa my therapist welcomed me and started with a foot bath. Afterwards I went for 30 minutes in the steam room and cooled down under the rain shower. Then the best part started ... a 90 minutes oil massage. I decided beforehand to try out the lavender oil, great choice! The massage was so good that I even fall asleep for some time. That never happened before. After the spa treatment I got fresh fruits and herbal tea.
I also tried the 3.5 hours "I love Spa" treatment. It also started with a foot bath and after a shower I went for 30 minutes in the steam room and following I relaxed half an hour in an aromatic milk whirl pool. The spa treatment continued with a body scrub with rose, sugar and scrubs of my choice. At the end I enjoyed a long oil massage. The whole treatment again took place in a private villa.
Bars and Restaurants
Next to the pool there is the Red Chili Restaurant where breakfast, lunch and dinner is served. Breakfast is either in buffet style or á la carte. The lunch buffet offers a wide range of thai food for guests and outside visitors. Try to get a table at the window from where you have a nice view on the pool as well as the lush greenery and a little pond.
Thai Cooking Class at Sukko Spa Resort Phuket
While staying at Sukko Resort I learnt how to cook thai food. However, before we started cooking we went to the hotel's own garden to pick the ingredients. The resort grows almost everything and the chefs use only fresh ingredients for cooking.
Once we had all ingredients together we cut everything for the different dishes and even made the coconut milk by ourselves. Everything fresh and with traditional methods! It is more work but makes the food so much better.
The chef taught me how to cook Fried Chicken with Cashew Nut, Tom Yam Koong (Thai Prawn Soup) and Panang Koong which is a Thai curry with shrimps.
At the end of the course I received a certificate that I have completed the Thai Cooking Class at Sukko Resort. It was really fun and gave me an interesting insight into the Thai culture.
