Get out of hectic sweltering Bangkok and flee to your own private oasis of indulgence at Atta, sitting on the edge of the Khao Yai National Park, which is a UNESCO Heritage Site.
You will be surrounded by not only utter luxury, but also the playful tunes of many colorful migrating bird species and the murmurings of a tropical jungle teeming with wildlife. Cool cascading waterfalls, which roar in the wet season, create a natural ambience where sublime chic comfort slides effortlessly into elements of Asian influence.
Perched on the edge of a lake, Atta has nine five-story buildings, containing 243 units in total. Architecturally designed using a single corridor style, the buildings blend naturally into the lush landscape. Every room has stunning panoramic vistas where sitting on your private deck at sunset is one of sheer pleasure. One or two bedroom units are on offer, with the ultimate being the penthouse suite, having its own private swimming pool and Jacuzzi for those skinny dipping moments or if the kids are in tow, room to move for everyone.
Every little detail has been taken care of from airport transfers, baby sitting, bicycle rental and laundry service, nothing has been left to chance. Touting that the resort will “rise you above heaven on earth”, it is a hard choice to be made when given its sister resort “Kirimaya” is a mere one-minute away as the crow flies. The name “Kirimaya” means “illusion of mountain”, but there are no false illusions to be had, only a true sense of calm and relaxation as you seamlessly slip into a destination of unparalleled beauty.
