Minor International Unveils The Residences by Anantara Phuket Layan
First Anantara Residential Development in the World Features Fifteen Luxury Villas on Phuket’s Layan Beach
Minor International PCL is pleased to announce the launch of its first Anantara branded residential villa development – The Residences by Anantara Phuket Layan. The development features 15 uniquely designed luxury villas which are located overlooking breathtaking Layan Beach, on the northwest coast of Phuket, Thailand.
“We are excited to introduce the ultimate luxurious Anantara lifestyle experience to owners. Located in one of Phuket’s most coveted areas, and with only fifteen villas available, this development is a true symbol of prestige and exclusivity,” said Dillip Rajakarier, CEO of Minor Hotels Group. “In Sanskrit, Anantara means ‘without end.’ We are thrilled to present these stunning villas that evoke the freedom, movement and harmony that are the spirit of the Anantara experience.”
Ideal for romantic escapes, family travel and entertaining, the impressive villas range in size from three to seven bedrooms, each with a 21-metre infinity pool and providing an unobstructed 180-degree view overlooking the Andaman Sea. The spectacular expansive villas range in size from 1,695 to 3,920 square metres (approximately 18,000 to 42,000 square feet), providing the space to get away from it all, or to share the luxurious destination with friends and family.
Residents at The Residences by Anantara Phuket Layan will also have access to the amenities and services offered by the adjacent five star Anantara Phuket Layan Resort & Spa, which include outstanding culinary experiences, an Anantara Spa, two swimming pools, a gym and a boutique. Alternatively residents can enjoy in-home spa treatments, in-villa dining prepared by Chef Umberto Piccolini and his talented team, as well as private sessions with a Master of Wellness to help residents relax and regain their balance. Chang Club for Children has engaging, fun activities for children aged 4 – 11. For those looking to explore the area, Blue Canyon Country Club is accessible to residents who would like to play either of its two award-winning championship golf courses. Major Affair is a 90-foot Sunseeker yacht that residents can charter to tour exotic beaches and offshore islands in uncompromising style, with a pickup service directly in front of the residences on the Anantara private beach.
Layan Beach is one of the most sought after locations on Phuket. While other areas of Phuket have become more densely populated bustling vacation towns, Layan remains a favourite with savvy overseas visitors seeking tranquility on Layan’s untouched white beaches lapped by turquoise water. The villas are conveniently located just 20 minutes from Phuket International Airport so residents can easily transition from the plane to the beach in minimal time. The well-known Nikki Beach Club is also only a short walk away.
Renowned interior designer Jaya Ibrahim, the late owner of JAYA International Design, thoughtfully created a modern interpretation of classical Asian design for each villa. He drew upon the local culture and natural environment of the Andaman Coast and used design elements rooted in the region to design homes that are sophisticated and luxurious. His contemporary interpretation of Thai culture is subtle and unobtrusive, stylish yet minimal.
The Residences by Anantara Phuket Layan are developed by HHR Limited, a subsidiary of Minor International, PCL (MINT).
