Top 6 destinations to celebrate New Year's Eve 2017 on a luxury yacht

4 of 6 4/6
New Year Phuket


Best for beach party fun

Thailand’s beaches offer the full range of options for New Year’s Eve: from utter peace among film set-worthy beauty in the Andaman islands to the hedonistic abandon of the Full Moon Party on Koh Phangan. Phuket is a happy medium between the two, getting the balance of escapism and nightlife just right.

The five star hotels on the western flank of the island put on dazzling pyrotechnics. “Anchor in Surin beach and watch the fireworks display which is staged by the Amanpuri resort,” says Gordon Fernandes of Asia Pacific Superyachts. “The best place to watch is on board a superyacht.”

Yacht Haven Phuket Marina, on the north eastern side of Phuket and 15 minutes from the airport, can accommodate vessels up to 70 metres in length. It has the full range of yacht facilities, including a chandlery and specialist yacht engineers, plus amenities like a swimming pool, making it a fantastic base for a New Year’s Eve in Phuket.

Where to party

New Year’s Eve in Phuket isn’t complete without a party. Yachties who are on the guest list can join in beach celebrations at the Amanpuri resort, which will be followed by the Culinary Extravaganza, fireworks display and beach party.

Where to recover

For a luxury take on a fried breakfast, load up on oysters, rib eye, foie gras and caviar at the New Year’s Day brunch of the Oriental Spoon restaurant at the Twinpalms resort. If you are too delicate for food, have your captain head north to locals’ favourite Banana Beach. Tender in with a bottle of water and some aspirin, and lie down until the palm trees stop spinning.
