Koh Yao Noi, Thailand

Ani Thailand


Ani-thing you want


Secluded stretch of shoreline





Inspired by northern Thailand’s teakwood temples and Lanna architecture, Ani Thailand is your own private sanctuary on Koh Yao Noi’s white-sand shoreline. The two-acre estate overlooks limestone-speckled Phang Nga Bay and exudes elegance throughout with natural wooden interiors and luxurious touches in its 10 suites. This exclusive stay has all holiday needs covered courtesy of curated meals, Thai cookery classes with your private chef, guided bike tours around the island and a round-the-clock team of 22 staff to cater for your every need. Take it easy, watching the sunrise with a morning yoga session in the villa’s east-facing gardens and getting pampered in the private spa, or amp up the adrenaline by whizzing down your personal waterslide and paddle boarding along the 90-metre stretch of beach.
