Thailand needs no introduction but if were going to attempt to sum up it’s riches and attributes we should begin where most of Thailand’s visitors begin – the mythical beaches. Not only do amazing coral gardens flourish in crystalline shallow waters that glisten against the radiant sunshine, not only do the beautiful fine white sand beckon your call, not only do the tall palms sway towards you in an inviting manner, not only is the water the most entrancing shade of blue-green, but also the thriving marine life that lurks beneath the waves awaits your visit. A Thai beach has every element to lull visitors into a sense of wellbeing, contentment and peace. Add tantalising food to the mix and you’ve got a glorious combination that will treat all your senses. Flavoursome food and magical beaches… what could be more perfect?
Phuket is Thailand’s biggest island. Sitting pretty off Thailand’s Andaman Coast, Phuket was the first island to develop a tourist industry so it’s a great place to stay if you like your slice of paradise to come with all modern comforts and conveniences.
The winners of this incredible prize will spend three nights in Anantara Mai Khao Phuket Villas and three nights in Anantara Layan Phuket Resort. Anantara Mai Khao Villas invites you on a journey that may be as aquatic, leisurely, culinary or adventurous as you like. Immersed in the island’s magnificent northwest coast, Anantara Mai Khao Phuket Villas is unlike any other resort on the island, compelling you to create unforgettable stories along the Andaman coast.
Resembling a traditional southern Thai village, 91 private pool villas are set amid glorious indigenous gardens and a beautifully expansive lagoon. Designed with exotic Thai architecture, handpicked artwork and rich textiles, sliding bedroom and bathroom doors accentuate the free owing space and open directly onto your courtyard garden. Take to your hardwood deck to bask under the sun on comfy loungers, before refreshing under the alfresco rain shower. Connect your iPod to the surround sound music system and select a bottle from your personal wine cellar. Soak in a terrazo tub for two, which is inlaid into your personal pool. Experience an evening of blissful seclusion, sharing a romantic meal in your private sala.
At Anantara Mai Khao Phuket Villas there is also an infinity edge swimming pool with a swim-up bar, water sports on tap, tennis courts, a fitness centre and The Gallery boutique. Tailor made excursions available include private luxury boat trips, elephant trekking, diving and private surf lessons.
Next you will be heading to Anantara Layan Phuket Resort, nestled in a quiet bay with white sands and crystal clear water that remains a hidden gem away from Phuket’s busier shores. Layan is a luxury collection of 77 rooms, suites and villas, in idyllic beachfront and hillside settings, all designed with couples, friends and families in mind. Discover a new passion with relaxing and thrilling watersports. Take a deep breath with revitalising yoga sessions or experience signature wellness journeys at Anatara Spa. There is a choice of four restaurants and bars at the resort, including Sala Layan, offering a lavish breakfast buffet and, later, international cuisine; Dee Plee, which serves vibrant Thai dishes; Breeze which is a tropical bar offering refreshing drinks and light snacks; and the Infinity Bar from which you can take in the exceptional bay view. The resort also offer ‘in-villa BBQ by design’ where you can create a flame-grilled meal yourself (or call on a chef to cook it for you!) or a ‘dining by design’ service whereby you choose the location and the menu for your meal, which could be a picturesque setting under the stars!
