Anantara Layan Phuket Resort Luxury Phuket Villa Holiday

We love a fancy beach resort. But what gets us really revved up is a luxury beach home like the Layan Residences by Anatara. The VIP experience begins the moment your plane lands at the Phuket International Airport. Here, you’ll be greeted right at the air bridge, escorted through fast-track immigration, baggage claim and customs, and ushered straight into your limousine.

A 20-minute drive later, you arrive at the Layan Residences by Anantara, a spectacular collective of 15 mansions set within lush forests that overlook the golden Layan Beach and sparkling blue of the Andaman Sea. Such a deliberately secluded vantage point means the property is as much the private haven as you crave. The Residences comprise two- to five-bedroom villas, each designed in a modern, elegant Asian-inspired aesthetic. All are fully furnished with media entertainment and spa rooms, as well as accommodation for live-in butlers and chefs.

Sweeping floor-to-ceiling windows, coupled with clever spatial planning, ensure expansive views of the pristine shores and lovely waters of Phuket’s west coast. For those who won’t want to miss getting any suntan on, know that every villa comes with a private rooftop and pool decks, and a generous 21-m cliffedge infinity pool. For whiling away a lazy afternoon, pop into one of the open Thai sala pavilions, and soak up panoramic views of the Andaman Sea. After that, order your meals from the live-in butler, or book a spa treatment at the Anantara Spa.

And if you eventually venture out of the villa, the myriad of food and entertainment options located throughout Layan Residences promises to satiate your adventurous spirit. An hour-long session of Muay Thai or sunset kayaking (kayaks are available free of charge!) will help you work up an appetite. The ravenous can be spotted at Dee Plee, a hillside restaurant that whips up an array of Thai specialities from the northern and southern regions, like Khao Soi Gai, a coconut curry noodle dish, and South Massaman Nua, a curry with slowcooked beef cheeks, respectively. Alternatively, opt for the rich, indulgent flavours of Italian cuisine at the beachfront Sala Layan. Give enough notice, and you can even get a private dining table on the beach for the ultimate Dining under the Stars experience.
