Experience the best of Thailand with Anantara Phuket Layan Resort & Spa

It’s not difficult to find time to travel and plan for a holiday if you put your heart to it. While Delhi grasps you in the unwanted extreme summer heat, an escape to a destination where the best of luxury hotels beckon you with seducing beaches can be very tempting.  Anantara Phuket Layan Resort & Spa, is one such hotel that offers you a new chapter of unique experiences in luxury, surrounded by natural exclusivity in the world famous beach resort.

Anantara in Sanskrit means 'without end'. It symbolizes the sharing of water, an ancient tradition followed in Thailand whereby a jar of water was always placed outside the house for weary travelers. It is this tradition and heritage that lies in the heart of the Anantara hospitality.

Anantara Phuket Layan Resort & Spa is a hideaway tucked away on the intimate and unspoiled corner of the northwest coast of Phuket and nestles in the picturesque Layan Beach at the serene, far end of Bang Tao Bay. The island’s bustling southern beaches and city centre are only a 35 minute drive away.

While you are here, you can discover Phuket with its various shopping boutiques, nightclubs, street shopping, world famous cuisine and entertainment that will keep your holidays enthralled and memorable.

It is surrounded by lush exotic landscapes and towering coconut trees on one of the least developed and most beautiful beaches on the island. Here, crystal blue waters meet with silk sands that lead to acres of native beachfront vegetation and quiet natural enclaves, creating an ideal environment for pure relaxation.

The stunning new resort offers nine different room types across 77 luxurious suites and villas on 400 metres of secluded beach, including a two bedroom Family Pool Villa, a couple of two bedroom Pool Villas and a vast 485 square metre Pool Villa. With direct beach access, a private pool and extensive outdoor areas, the Anantara Pool Villa is the ultimate tropical island retreat, accommodating up to six adults.

The interiors feature local accents in every room and all the comforts from home.  You can use the iPod docking station and an Apple television through which videos and movies can be streamed from guests’ iPhones or iPads.  Internet here is complimentary.

The 47 villas each boast a private pool, a selection of books and a discreet villa host who is available 24 hours a day.  Guests at Anantara Phuket Layan are spoilt for choice when it comes to wining and dining with a host of venues, each offering a distinctive setting, menu and ambience. Phuket is already well known for its fresh, succulent seafood and the resort’s menus scrumptiously reflect this. Sala Layan, the all-day dining restaurant, offers a lavish breakfast buffet with live cooking stations, the best of eastern and western favourites and a vitality food selection throughout the day Also don’t miss out on the most decadent Sunday brunch here.

While at the Deeplee signature restaurant, authentic Thai cuisine from around the Kingdom is deliciously articulated with divine flavour pairings of intricate creations. The Asian flavours extend to the adjacent cliff edge Infinity Bar, where exceptional views, exquisite cocktails and sumptuous Thai tapas exemplify the best that Southeast Asia has to offer. And for those who prefer the blissful ocean breeze and cool waters, the Breeze pool bar offers inventive cocktails, revitalising fresh juices and light poolside snacks to fuel a day lounging in the tropical sun while Sunshine Butlers are on hand with fruit skewers and cold face towels to cool sunbathers down.

As the sun sets, guests can indulge in the ultimate romantic dining with personalised ‘Dining by Design’ experiences, where a specially devised menu is prepared by a personal chef, and served at a table for two in dreamy locations, from an isolated enclave to a deck on a cliff edge – anywhere of the guests’ choosing.

The resort provides a beautiful location for wedding settings with its natural exclusivity and signature style. You can choose the setting between unique cliff edge open chapel with magical and stunning photo opportunities are provided with the ocean backdrop to the a tropical beachfront bliss with the Andaman’s waves as the wedding march.

And of course you can’t be an Anantara guest and not experience the famous Thai spa offerings in their treatment suites. So relax, rejuvenate and refresh in the world famous expert hands of Thai therapists in their seven treatment suites to complete your glorious Thai holiday.
