Phuket, Thailand has some of the world’s best Spas, Hotels and Resorts and is one of the top ten holiday destinations in the world according to a recent ‘best in travel’ poll by Smart Travel Asia.

Votes in the poll, which is run for three months between May and July, are taken from Smart Travel Asia’s one million reader base and follow their travel experiences and word of mouth.

Phuket received third place in the world’s top ten holiday destinations category beating other countries such as Hong Kong, Philippines and the Maldives.  Although Phuket fell from second in last year’s poll to third, the island has consistently ranked within the top ten.

The Amanpuri, owned by Aman Resorts and located on Pansea Beach on the West Coast of Phuket, continued to rank as the world’s leading leisure Hotel and Resort for a second year running.  A total of twenty five hotels and resorts were considered. The Amanpuri beat competition from The Nam Hai Hotel in Vietnam and Sofitel Legend Metropole in Hanoi.  The resort is also ranked as Asia’s best Hotel for 2010 by Travel & Leisure Magazine.

The Banyan Tree, Phuket won second place as the world’s leading Spa, Hotel and Resort.  Although beaten by The Conrad in the Maldives, it ranked higher than The Bulgari Resort and The Four Seasons, both located in Bali.
