Anantara will add a second resort in Phuket next year.
Opening in January 2014, Anantara Phuket Layan Resort & Spa will be located at Layan Beach, on the island’s northwest coast, 20 minutes’ drive from Phuket International Airport.
The new resort will feature 77 suites and villas, all featuring iPod docking stations, Apple TVs, wine cabinets, in-room bars, Nespresso coffee machines and free Wi-Fi. The 47 villas will all feature private pools.
The resort’s F&B options include the Sala Layan, an all-day dining restaurant, and the Deeplee Thai restaurant, plus the Infinity Bar and Breeze pool bar. There is also a Thai cooking school.
Other resort facilities include an outdoor swimming pool, spa, fitness centre, gift shop, library and kids’ club, plus a range of watersports and bicycle hire.
Anantara Phuket Layan Resort & Spa will become the second Anantara in Phuket, following the Anantara Phuket Villas, and expands the brand’s Thai portfolio to 12 hotels and resorts.
