Thailand’s most luxurious all-inclusive private resort, ÀNI Thailand invites guests to discover an untouched, authentic Thailand during a bespoke experience that defies expectations.
Slojourn Studio Founder & Creative Director, Tess Willcox, said Thailand’s recent reopening makes now the perfect time to book a hotly coveted ÀNI Thailand experience: the ultimate in exclusive group getaways.
“Thailand is open for travel again, which means no more Thailand Pass, mandatory insurance, or testing. For entry into the ‘land of smiles’, now you simply need proof of vaccination or a negative PCR test 72 hours before arrival,” she said.
Located on the unspoiled island of Koh Yao Noi within two acres of lush, well-tended gardens, ÀNI Thailand offers an entire, all-inclusive, private resort designed exclusively for a single group of guests. With spellbinding oceanfront views, the resort can accommodate up to 20 guests across two Ocean Villas, two Family Villas, and four Pool Suites, and offers direct access to a sandy beach overlooking the turquoise waters and limestone islands of Phang Nga Bay.
The resort’s discreet and dedicated team of 22 exist to fulfill every wish and tailor every detail, from special dining, cultural, and wellness moments, to kids’ activities, personal training, and exploration of the region.
Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are served each day in different settings across the resort, with every menu tailored according to guest preferences. Free-flow beverages including juices, premium spirits, cocktails, and wines can be enjoyed whenever a guest desires.
Up to 10 spa treatments per day are included, as well as personal training, non-motorised water sports, guided cycling tours and local walks, movies by moonlight, private yoga instruction, personal training, up to eight hours of complimentary babysitting, and a daily children’s activity program.
“A stay at ÀNI is all-inclusive which means no hidden costs or price lists; just pure relaxation and the time and space for guests to focus on what is important to them,” said Tess.
“The resort offers an authentic Thai experience, with guest privileges including one Traditional Thai dance show, fire juggling show, and sunset cruise on a traditional longboat per stay. Other cultural experiences include Batik painting, jasmine garland making, Thai cooking classes with the resort’s Executive Chef, and instruction in Muay Thai Boxing,” she explained.
Beyond ÀNI’s comprehensive inclusions, the expert local team can arrange any possible experience offered in the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Phang Nga Bay, a region renowned for its pristine natural beauty. Meaning ‘Small Long Island’, Koh Yao Noi is characterised by deserted beaches, protected mangroves, picturesque rice paddies, and its verdant interior. The island is part of Ao Phang Nga National Park, making it a sanctuary for wildlife including hornbills, sea otters, and green turtles. Fishing villages and farms dot the largely uninhabited, island, renowned for its laidback pace of life and friendly Southern Thai culture.
“Although a trip to Koh Yao Noi is like stepping back in time, to the Thailand of yesteryear, it is easily accessible. Guests can reach the resort via a 30-minute speedboat journey from Ao Po Grand Marina, which is a 30-minute drive from Phuket International Airport; a 30-minute speedboat journey from Krabi Pier, which is a 45-minute drive from Krabi International Airport; or a private jet from Bangkok to Phuket and helicopter to Koh Yao Noi,” Tess said.
“Their ANI Thailand stay includes roundtrip transfers from Phuket or Krabi Airports, once per group, VIP arrival and departure airport experience, unpacking and packing service (as per guest request), daily laundry, international calling and high-speed Wi-Fi, and Netflix, Apple TV, and Apple Music in every room.”
