Anantara Layan Phuket Resort – A Secluded Luxury

23 February 2016 / By

Couples and families looking for an escape from Phuket’s party scene should look no further. This property features lovely views, great food and activities, and ultimate relaxation.  However, should guests wish to leave the resort, Phuket’s lively nightlife, and sightseeing activities could be reached by taxi.

The Property:

Set on a hillside beside a quiet sandy cove and overlooking the Andaman Sea, guests are transported to paradise.  Every vantage point is picture worthy.  From the beautifully lush and landscaped gardens to views from your room’s infinity pool, you are in heaven.  Anantara Layan Phuket Resort is dedicated to preserving the natural beauty and resources.  Landscaping plans incorporate trees and plants into the overall design.  The rooms are designed to be energy efficient.  We appreciate properties accentuating the natural beauty and being eco-friendly!

The Rooms:

The property has luxurious rooms to suit any traveler’s needs and budget.  Categories range on many levels from a deluxe room with breathtaking sea views to a private 2-bedroom beachfront pool villa. A fantastic melding of classic and contemporary Thai esthetic makes visitors feel like royal guests.




Anantara Layan Phuket Resort features Sala Layan, an all-day dining restaurant.  The restaurant’s breakfast buffet is one of the most elegant we have seen.  A beautiful array of cheeses and charcuterie are displayed in the wine cellar.  Chefs abound, preparing made to order soups, egg dishes, pancakes, waffles, and freshly cut fruit.  Also, the variety of salads, bread, spreads, is dizzying.  Top it off with free-flowing champagne.  This was one of our favorite buffets during our 3-week trip to Southeast Asia!  Other dining options include a poolside bar and the upscale Thai restaurant, Dee Plee.   Guests can also arrange for a personalized dining experience to create a unique culinary adventure.  We love the personalized dining experiences, such as enjoying dinner and cocktails by candlelight on the beach.  Interested in learning more about Thai cuisine and cooking? Be sure to check out “Spice Spoons,” the property’s cooking school.




For guests wishing to relax completely, we highly recommend a treatment at the Anantara Spa.  Ultimate indulgence will be had!  With luxurious treatment rooms and a private pool overlooking the Andaman Sea, you will inevitably be swept away into utter relaxation.  If you are interested in water sports, the property offers complimentary use of non-motorized equipment.  We highly recommend taking out a kayak or paddleboard and cruise around the protected cove.  If you happen to be staying as a guest on Tuesday evenings, be sure to check out the manager’s reception.  For 90 minutes, you can mingle with other guests while sipping on complimentary wine and cocktails and eating passed hors-d’oeuvres.  The resort also puts on fantastic shows for special occasions and holidays. We happened to stay during Loy Krathong and were treated to a fabulous fire show.



The Anantara Layan Phuket Resort is a beautiful and quiet retreat situated on the northwest coast of Phuket Island. We highly recommend this property if you are looking for a fun, relaxing, and luxurious beach experience without the plethora of young party travelers.
