Ani-thing you want


Quiet stretch of shoreline





Àni Thailand's design is inspired by temples in northern Thailand: as such, the villa feels like your own private sanctuary on Yao Noi’s white-sand shoreline. The two-acre estate exudes elegance with its sleek wooden interiors and the luxurious touches in its 10 bedrooms, such as tactile fabrics. This exclusive stay has all holidays needs covered, from cookery classes with your private chef to guided bike tours around the island. Take it easy, sipping cocktails in the poolside bar and getting pampered in the private spa, or amp up the adrenaline by whizzing down your personal waterslide and paddle boarding along your 90-metre stretch of beach.

First Glance

  • This expansive coastal villa is decorated with sleek wood-paneling, elegant Thai-inspired fabrics and ornate decorations.
  • Making the most of the shoreside setting, there’s a number of indoor and outdoor living spaces to choose from; by day, take in the sun from the poolside deck or in the open-air lounge, and in the evenings retreat to the indoor living sala.
  • There’s a bar and an overwater alfresco dining sala by the infinity pool; plus a café and cookery school run by the villa’s private chef, near the entrance of the villa.
  • At the rear of the property there’s a gym, yoga pavilion and spa which is manned by your personal team of therapists (spa treatments are included).

Sleeping arrangements

French doors lead from the bedroom out onto a private terrace with front-row sea views. The ensuite bathrooms have a walk-in shower and a large bath tub that overlooks the beach.
  • The two Family Suites (91sq m) are located behind the Master Ocean Front Suites. Each has two bedrooms set either side of a shared living room; all bedrooms can be set up with king-size or twin beds and have their own ensuite bathroom with a shower.

  • The villa’s manicured lawns, picturesque flowerbeds and well-pruned bushes are bordered by verdant jungle on three sides, and a white-sand beach and the Andaman Sea on the other.
