Anantara Si Kao Resort & Spa, Thailand – Discover Another Side of Thailand
01 Oct 2008
Explore an undiscovered corner of Thailand with a host of authentic natural and cultural wonders while surrendering to a state of bliss at Anantara's stunning new resort. Set to open by the end of 2008 Anantara Si Kao Resort & Spa lies on the secluded Changlang Beach area south of Krabi. White sand beaches, virgin tropical rainforest, incredible caves and beautiful waterfalls all combine to make one of Thailand's best kept secrets.
Located in the charmingly uncommercial Trang Province, approximately one hour's drive from Krabi International Airport, the resort is framed by whispering Casuarina trees and beckoning tropical islands. Guests can unwind in laid-back luxury, explore the stunning environment or perhaps get up close and personal with the famous Dugong (Sea Cow) herds that populate the region.
Whether guests arrive in search of the energising pleasures of the array of water and land-based activities on offer, or to achieve relaxation and inner peace, Anantara Si Kao creates an unforgettable dream of an unspoilt Thailand. A true destination experience, the resort forms part of the Hat Chao Mai National Park, covering the coastal area and numerous fairytale islands dotted amidst the glittering turquoise waters of the Andaman Sea.
Guests looking for adventure can enjoy the resort's excellent facilities, including speed and long-tail boats, canoes and kayaks, and bicycles or on two feet. A regular speedboat shuttle service enables guests to indulge at Anantara Si Kao's exclusive private day resort on the nearby stunning tropical island of Koh Kradan with its rugged limestone cliffs and vast rubber plantations.
Anantara Si Kao will offer 138 sea-view rooms and suites, with a choice of three room styles all featuring exotic Thai-inspired facilities, open bathrooms with large tubs, and private terraces or balconies. Of particular highlight will be two Anantara signature pool villas and a presidential villa comprising up to three bedrooms, set around a private pool. Guests will be able to stroll from the Bill Bensley-designed lush tropical gardens down on to stretches of white sandy beaches that run for kilometres.
Those who want to cocoon themselves in luxury may seek out the tranquility of the swimming pool or separate children's pool, the pleasures of the fitness centre and WiFi lounge or the renowned pampering of the Anantara Spa. Dining options include the open-air Vistas restaurant, serving European and healthy choices, along with stunning Thai classics and local specialties, and the Beach House complete with unique "romantic day-bed boat" which offers snacks, great smoothies and a great place to watch the sun go down over a Bellini or Margarita cocktail. As night falls the second-floor lofted restaurant ACQUA is the place to savour scrumptious seafood and pastas served with an Italian flair. Engage our Wine Guru, who is on hand to take you on an illuminating journey through his extensive wine list.
Dining by Design is our specialty dinner experience not to be missed - and we can keep a secret, as we prepare that special romantic private dinner on our sandbank with your personal chef.
Activities and excursions are our passion and expertise; together with our local partners we have created the ingredients for you to discover the resort and the region. Try your hand at Thai cuisine in our cooking classes; learn scuba diving, go snorkeling and indulge in the myriad of water sports. Explore the surrounding beaches, caves and street markets. And let your kids explore their imagination at the brilliant Kid's Club so they can go home with some great stories to tell too!
