Phuket Business of the Year 2010

Critics quibble about the size of the Central group and whether it's too autocratic and insular. But when a big Thai brand backs Phuket the way that this group has, introducing not just a new five-star but a new three-star brand, quibbles lose out to quantity and quality.

Phuket Innovation of the Year 2010

Phuket Tin Mine Museum, Kathu
For renovating and redesigning a piece of local history and using that to promote a brighter, more self-assured and cultural Phuket.

Phuket Resort of the Year 2010

The Westin Siray Bay Resort and Spa Phuket
Sprawling across an east coast hillside on relatively remote Koh Siray, the Westin makes a statement about what's possible in Phuket's quieter corners. It's a bold adventure, but all the early indications are that it will reap the benefits of boldness.

Phuket Good Value Restaurant of the Year 2010

Uptown, Phuket City
Consistent for value, service and quality, Uptown earns its place as one of the restaurants that defines low-cost Phuket dining and makes it a unique experience. Uptown sets the standard for what fast food everywhere should always be about: local taste at low prices.

Phuket Best Restaurant of the Year 2010

Sea.Fire.Salt., Anantara, Mai Khao
Anantara sets new standards in resort innovation on Phuket. Most of its ideas are winners. This restaurant is one of the few within Phuket resorts that deserves to be celebrated and emulated. Dining here makes the trip to Mai Khao for a big night out worthwhile.

Environmental Excellence of the Year 2010

Nick Anthony
Was there any doubt that the award for environmental excellence could have gone to anybody else except Phuket's very own environmental crusader Nick Anthony? He assures us that 2011 will be the year that a charge for plastic bag use will be introduced. Watch this space.

I'll add Central Festival, in particular the Food Hall innovation, to the excellence of Central's contributions!

Is the tin mining museum actually open yet? I visited early in the year when it was half open, then it all closed again and was still closed last time we looked just after Loy Krathong. I have not seen any news reports about the opening ...
