Pamper yourself: Anantara Phuket Layan Resort & Spa


Phuket’s newest resort wants to cater to your every need – especially the ones you never knew you had. As one of the most popular tourist destinations in the region, Phuket is, not surprisingly, dense in resorts. Yet, more are opening, including Anantara Phuket Layan Resort & Spa, the hotel chain’s third on the island.

The property is nestled on the 400m-long LayanBeach on the island’s northwest, at the far end of BangTaoBay. Compared to its Thai sisters like the Anantara Phuket Villas and the Golden Triangle Elephant Camp & Resort, Layan is significantly more contemporary in design.

But traditional accents still abound – from the generous use of carved wood panels to colourful ornaments – so you’ll never feel like you’re in just another plush hotel. Rooms start from a generous 56 sq m but you would want to stay in the 485 sq m Anantara Pool Villa, which has two bedrooms, a private pool and garden with beach access, wine fridge, and a packing and unpacking service, on top of the usual hotel amenities.
