Sparkling in the Andaman Sea, the island of Koh Yao Noi is an unspoilt beauty perfectly positioned between the island of Phuket and Krabi on the mainland. This is the heart of Thailand’s southern charm and just to be in this mesmerizing landscape is simply inspiring. After all, who doesn’t want to vacation on a castaway-style island in a secluded beachfront paradise?
Ani Villa Thailand
As soon as you step foot in Ani Villa and its luxurious private estate setting, you enter your own extraordinary world of vacation wonder; a spectacularly spacious stay right by a gorgeous white-sand beach and turquoise waters. The stand-alone arrival pavilion sets the tone with classic Thai architectural features and contemporary design flourishes. Dark woods exude a sense of hideaway extravagance that embraces all your senses. The Ocean Front Master Suites are relaxing havens and there are four Master Pool Suites as well as a couple of Two Bedroom Family Suites with their own living rooms too; altogether big enough for groups of 20 guests. What is really great is how rates are customized to suite-occupation while the whole villa is open even to smaller groups of guests.
The Villa Facilities
For all its upscale beachfront loveliness, Ani Villa really excels when it comes to creating a perfect vacation lifestyle. Days are spent lounging by the 42-meter beachfront pool, with a workout to start the day at the villa’s state-of-the-art gym or cycle-ride with mountain bikes available for free. A real highlight is the kids’ pool with a 45-meter long, 5-meter high double-helix water slide which keeps little ones, and grown-ups too, entertained literally all day long. Without leaving the grounds, massage treats soothe at the private spa and a feeling of being at-one with yourself is inspired at the yoga and meditation pavilion. While the indoor living room sala promises views and air-conditioned comfort, the best of the coastal setting is enjoyed with al fresco dining and a poolside lounge sala, with sundowners at the villa’s bar. The beach beckons beyond the lawn, with sandcastles, paddle boarding and kayaking.
Luxury villa comfort is made possible with help on hand and a villa manager, butler, and private chef define possibilities as does the villa’s activities coordinator, fitness instructor, and spa therapists. What soon becomes clear is that whilst Ani Villa is out of this world, the level of service is absolutely what makes your stay one to remember. Return airport transfers, laundry services, and inclusions such as movie and music streaming top up this feeling of being looked after and essentially it just feels great.
The Food by Chef Yao
No holiday is complete without memorable dining experiences, and with Chef Yao’s culinary expertise mealtimes at Ani Villa are appetizingly remarkable. With artistic presentations and perfectly balanced Asian flavors, Yao also rustles up delicious international cuisine; all served in spectacular style in the villa’s dining sala that floats over the pool right by the edge of the beach. There is also a café space, dining table, and kitchen indoors too. Gourmet dishes are served from breakfast through lunch to dinner, with snacks all day, cocktails and a mini bar for refreshments too.
Activities To Do
Exploring the island becomes a wonderful extension of a stay at Ani Villa, with luxury services extending to the beach. Interesting pursuits include learning to fish like the locals and immersing yourself in island culture with visits to craft markets and temples. Boat trips take in the beauty of the Andaman while mountain climbing gives a whole new perspective to your getaway. At the villa, cooking classes, daily activities for kids, and even Thai boxing keep everyone engaged. Live performances with indigenous instruments add a musical note and you can learn to play with a lesson too. The island is a natural beauty spot with some fantastic excursions that really enhance your appreciation of the villa’s island setting. The wonderful vacation experiences just waiting to be discovered.
