“Welcome to Amanpuri”; the voice echoed as a beautifully handcrafted fragrant heart-shaped jasmine bracelet slipped onto your wrists as soon as the car door opened. With the sight of endless coconut palm trees shooting out from the horizon, just like the fireworks but in a full broad daylight. The sound track of whispering ocean as the calming wave kisses the shore. The dramatic staircase leading the way to the seemingly infinite stretch of powdery white sand beach with a mesmerizing backdrop of crystal clear turquoise Andaman sea, and the view of the stunning 40 villas. All designed to echo the Buddhist Zen and architecture of ancient Ayutthaya, gently cascading down the oceanfront hillside. We know we have arrived here in heaven on earth. A true place of peace, living up to its name, “Amanpuri” in Sanskrit.
Hidden away in the splendid location of this private cove, nestled among the lush green tropical forest and charmingly manicured garden with its very own private beach, multi-tired reflection pools, and endless palm trees that stretch as far as your eyes allow it.

Although within an eyeshot of the famous bustle and hustle Phi Phi Island (which we also love :)), Koh Lanta features charmingly calm clear blue seas, miles long white sand beaches, and stunning scenery both on and offshore (Oh Yes Paradise with Solitude Found!). The island is a true beauty hiding within the sea of Andaman with a touch of pure nature. Koh Lanta is also fairly known among European tourists as the hub for midrange to luxury holiday escape and it doesn’t get more luxury than that of the island’s first and ultimate 5 star resort “Pimalai”. Tucked away surreptitiously into 100 acres of lush green tropical forest on the edge of the ocean at the stunning Kantiang beach (with direct access to their 900 meters long pristine beach! goal!). If you are looking for luxury escape to the best-kept secret island that you can simply relax, unwind, and lose yourself to the serenity of luscious greenery and endless Andaman water, Pimalai is the place to be. Wanna check in with us to our Pimalai One Bedroom Pool Villa? Right this way :)
Our jaws drop as our longtail boat cruising closer to Koh Kradan and the ocean started turning into crazy shades of vivid turquoise blue. No wonder why our resort is called “Sevenseas Resort”. The water is crystal clear we can see white sand underneath the ocean’s floor. As professional island hoppers we are not afraid to say that this is most definitely one of the most beautiful islands in Thailand. We got asked by many of our followers where the under radar, non-touristic, and secluded tropical paradises are? Koh Kradan just made it to that list.
“Welcome Back Home” the gentle voices echoed. We looked up and encountered with heartfelt smiles and grins upon the faces of Six Senses Yao Noi team whom warmly welcomed us as we stepped into their private jetty. Among those was my super GEM (Guest Experience Manager) from my previous stay “Pee Kawee” who is now promoted to Assistant Manager but still insist on coming to see us upon arrival and through out our entire (magical) stay. This is how superb and unparalleled service is here. Six Senses will always have our hearts and there is no end to our future returns to this property and our future visits to that of others. The idyllic location in the remote jungle with the million dollar view of James Bond made famous stunning limestone isles rising from the ocean of Phang Nga is unmatched by non others in Thailand and that of South East Asia. This is most certainly the ultimate tropical island dream that one shall experience once in a lifetime. Get ready for luxurious pampering among the great nature where soul soothing is guaranteed. Come with us, this way!
On our trip to Phuket we would like to try something different, we would like to experience Phuket by the nature, in great tranquility, and have peaceful and relaxing vacation far away from Bangkok city life as well as from the buzzing light and sound of Patong and Phuket Town. This is when we found “Ayara Kamala”, secluded ocean front luxurious boutique resort on the west coast. I absolutely love the combination between the touch of Traditional Thai and contemporary ambience. Little perfect sanctuary in Kamala Beach, you couldn’t believe that this is only 20 minutes from Patong. So you really can enjoy the best of both worlds; perfect isolation within the reach of city center.
