On the tropical Thai island of Phuket lies a luxury hideaway, right by the Andaman sea. This is Anantara Layan Phuket Resort, a five-star sanctuary with ocean views, where you can watch or learn Muay Thai boxing and attend Thai cookery classes, as well as enjoying refined Thai food and holistic, heavenly treatments at the on-site spa.
The great outdoors
Rooms, suites, villas and residences offer panoramic views over this island paradise. All have outdoor spaces, so you can truly make the most of the tranquil atmosphere and balmy weather. Deluxe Rooms include Apple TV, Nespresso machine and Terrazzo bathtub plus rain shower, while Deluxe Layan Suites have even more space. Deluxe and Family Pool Villas have their own plunge pools, while open-air dining salas, private gardens and beachfront locations are available with Sala, Layan and Antara Villas. Glossy, natural woods are a feature of the decor, which has soothing neutral hues with accents in rich, royal shades of purple and gold.
A Thai feast of your own making
You can learn Thai cookery at Anantara Layan. Your teacher will first take you to the local markets for fresh produce, before returning to the open-air kitchen to guide you through the preparation of delicious dishes - which you can then take away to savour together. If you’d rather let someone else do the cooking, the restaurants at Anantara Layan will not disappoint. Mediterranean food is available all day at Sala Layan, or enjoy a snack, cocktail or chilled beer by the pool at Breeze. Dee Lee series up exquisite Thai dishes, after which you can head to The Mojito Factory for after-dinner drinks.
A satisfying spa experience
If that’s not enough, the Anantara Layan spa is sure to satisfy. With treatment rooms, a private pool, steam rooms, beauty and nail salon and a relaxation zone, experienced therapists can treat you to soothing, revitalised rituals using Elemis products.

We have been using Azure to arrange our holidays for over 12 years. Every year usually twice a year, sometimes more, we rely on the experienced team at Chester to provide expert information on our chosen destinations. Be it a return to our established favorites in Barbados and Dubai or a new and exiting destination chosen from Azures brochure it is always handled in a friendly and competent manner. The small details are not missed such as do we need late check out or early arrival, which can make such a difference after sometimes long hours travelling. For us using Azure takes the uncertainty out of booking holidays.
We have been booking our holidays through Azure for 10 years and we can thoroughly recommend them. The Azure team arrange amazing holidays, well chosen destinations and hotels with a tailored itinerary that runs like clockwork with so many wonderful extras, it really takes the time and stress out of planning. When the weather has disrupted our journeys, their 24 hour service has provided us with 5* rescues! Nothing is too much trouble for Azure staff and the same goes for all the staff we have met on our Azure holidays which really are out of this world. We continue to recommend your company and all your wonderful team and look forward to our next holiday with you.
Well we are back in the UK after an amazing trip for a very special birthday and must thank Azure in Chester and Jayne O'Gorman for organising everything after we won the auction bid for this trip with SeaDream Yacht Club at Valerie's Summer Ball last year! We had the trip of a lifetime, met amazing people, visited fabulous places and befriended the superb crew aboard SeaDream I. We couldn't fault a single thing onboard - just amazing and hope we can meet the crew again at some future date! I even cried when i had to leave! Well done Azure and Jayne O'Gorman.
My first experience with Azure was when they came to my rescue when my family and I were stranded abroad on holiday without accommodation, their professionalism and ability to make things happen at very very short notice was second to none. They were very knowledgeable and were able to utilise their many relationships within the industry to get things resolved for me within an hour. I can't praise them enough for rescuing my family's holiday and making it a truly memorable time. Since then the team always do their best to make my holidays the best they can possibly be based on their own vast travel knowledge and experiences. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them and wouldn't use anyone else for luxurious travel.
