Tucked away amidst the verdure of Sirinath National Park, overlooking the serene Bang Tao Bay, the Anantara Phuket Layan resort is a perfect place to relax and recharge at the end of a busy Thai holiday or during a weekend getaway. Accommodations consist of luxurious rooms and pool villas scattered across the hillside or close to the beach.
Our deluxe pool villa with private sun deck is well equipped with all the usual features including excellent free wifi and Apple TV but also less common treats like its own wine cooler – it seemed only right to while away part of an evening sipping nicely chilled grape in the huge outdoor bathtub built for two.
The scent of jasmine and orange blossom delights the nostrils as you wander around the lush grounds exchanging ‘sawasdees’ with the staff working tirelessly keep the gardens pristine. Drag yourself away from the privacy of your private pool and you’ll find the beautiful beachside infinity pool. Relax here or take advantage of the free water sports, and the shallow calm waters of the bay, and try your hand at kayaking or sailing a hobbie cat.
In the evening you can choose from three on-site restaurants or opt for a romantic private dinner on the beach. For short stays there’s little reason to leave the resort but for those staying longer the shops and restaurants of Laguana town are a ten minute taxi ride away or you can visit some of the neighbouring resorts.
From Muay Thai (kick boxing) to cookery classes to private sessions with expert wellness coaches, and the children’s Chang Club, Anantara Phuket Layan has something for everyone, all delivered in a tranquil and beautiful corner of Thailand’s biggest island.
