Privacy has gone hand in hand with the Thai island of Phuket ever since the original Amanresort, Amanpuri. But the private island theme itself is only just developing in these parts (Cambodia’s Song Saa Private Island is due any day now). This is what makes Naka Island (www.luxurycollection.com/nakaisland), formerly a Six Senses resort, stand apart as it opens this month off Phuket’s east coast. Classic Thai style informs the interiors of all 67 pool villas, which until March are a relative bargain at £184 per night.
