Where silk and Thai design accents meet beachfront luxury
In Phuket, stay in Anantara Mai Khao’s 389sqm Two Bedroom Royal Villa, which showcases not only the finest of Jim Thompson silk fabrics, but also the brand’s Thai heritage. The floors are natural Thai Makha, a rare hardwood renowned for its patina and distinctive grains, the internal doors and minibar are adorned with Thai Pikul flower designs and Thai artwork and carvings are artfully littered across the villa.
These are enlivened by pops of colour, first in the blue and white fabrics in the living room and the Floriental print of birds and butterflies amid peonies in the twin bedroom. The pièce de résistance is in the master bedroom, which features the HeliconiaDreamin’ print that was inspired by the Heliconia flower that still thrives in Jim Thompson’s former home.
Aside from the beautiful design details, guests can also enjoy their private 67sqm pool with spacious sun deck, terrazzo bathtubs in both bathrooms that also lead out to a secluded outdoor shower, luxury amenities such as the Bvlgari Guest Collection products and of course, the renowned Anantara Villa Host service.
