Anantara Vacation Club Phuket Mai Khao isn’t a typical resort.
The resort is a shared ownership concept property, also known as fractional ownership or a timeshare. Participants purchase flexible periods of time that allow them to select from a number of properties when it’s time to take a vacation. Where to vacation may be a tough choice- the Anantara brand has properties in Koh Samui, Queenstown, Bali and Phuket.
The luxururious one, two and three bedroom apartments are not only for monied timeshare owners. Far from it. All suites and villas can be reserved for as little as one night, but once you and your family have settled yourselves in these spacious surroundings, you’ll surely want to stay longer. I guess the goal is to impress you so much that you’ll want to buy in- no pressure you understand.
Everything old is new again at the Sheraton Hua Hin Pranburi Villas.
The newly rebranded conversion project just opened in Prachuap Khirkham province, a three-hour drive from Bangkok that offers privacy and unsurpassed views of nature. While Hua Hin may not have the international name recognition of some of Thailand’s southern beach areas, it’s well-known within the country as a fashionable getaway for stylish citizens, expatriates and even Thai royalty.
A memorable resort brings out the luxury touches before a guest even sets foot on property.
A great example of this is U Sunsuri Phuket Resort which recently opened its doors to guests. The resort’s U Choose program invites guests to customize their stay starting when they make their booking. That’s when guests are asked to select a choice of pillow, soap and tea. Want to enjoy a cup of Darjeeling tea before washing up for the night with jasmine-scented soap and laying your head down on an ultra soft microfiber pillow? No problem. Feel like changing it up with Earl Grey, lemongrass-scented soap and luxury duck down pillow? Consider it done.
Its name that’s one part flirty request and one part scandalous proposal, but the managers of the soon-to-open SLEEP WITH ME HOTEL @ Patong promise nothing but classy stays and personalized service.
Situated in the leisure area of the city, SLEEP WITH ME HOTEL @ Patong is expected to host its first guests in November 1, 2013.
