Conducted from August to October 2012, the DestinAsian Readers Choice Awards 2013 recognizes destinations and brands which provide consistent and unsurpassed standards in excellence and service. Readers were asked to select winning hotels in each category, based on their personal experiences which satisfied their needs in terms of luxury, service, style and comfort.

“Phuket offers some of the finest luxury resort accommodation to be found anywhere on the planet. When seasoned travellers who have experienced both our product and that of other resorts name us the best, it is an outstanding and very much appreciated honor,” commented JW Marriott Phuket Resort & Spa’s General Manager Tony Pedroni.

Banyan Tree were pioneers of the tropical garden spa and their hotels are staffed with therapists trained at the Banyan Tree Spa Academy in Laguna, Phuket. Banyan Tree’s 60 spas in Asia and across the globe deliver outstanding pampering and the ultimate in rest and relaxation.

On Koh Samui, the Four Seasons was named the Best Hotel, with voters highlighting the spa’s outdoor soaking tubs situated in a rain forest.
