If you love to wear your Armani sunnies whilst swanning around in barefoot decadence, then the Akyra Beach Club Natai Beach Phuket is the place you will want to be seen laying your head on a soft pillow. Oozing sophistication with an affluent bohemian flair, Akyra Beach Club is located front seat on the soft sands of Natai Beach, a mere 25 minutes north of Phuket International Airport. Snuggled between million dollar homes and traditional local fishing communities on the glorious unspoiled sands of Natai Beach, it is a world away from the brash chaos of tourist trodden areas of Phuket.
Cheekily nicknamed “The Hamptons” of Phuket, Natai Beach in the Gulf of Thailand is also home to Akaryn’s resort, Aleenta Phuket-Phang Nga that set a new benchmark for luxurious decadence when it recently opened. Akyra Beach Club is the pioneer resort for the Akaryn’s “Barefoot Luxury Portfolio”. Founded in Thailand in 2008, Akaryn Hotel Group specializes in managing small luxury resorts.
This west coast boutique resort sitting just over the Sarasin Bridge in Phang Nga is aimed at the pleasure seeker looking for all the good things in life without the stuffiness of generic hotels. Promising good vibes for the hip hedonist and with subtle sensual undercurrents, it is scheduled to open in the third quarter of 2016, with guests being able to take advantage of the facilities at the sister resort Aleenta.
Akaryn is chasing the market niche of a more mature chilled out beach crowd with maybe older kids that can hang out in their own rarified world either at the beach, pool or the Explorers Kids Club, whilst the parents indulge their brunching and lounging urges. Touting the resort as being the ideal venue for romantic escapes and beachfront weddings where your spirit will soar, Akyra Beach Club promises to be one of “the” places to be seen at. Brunches of free-flow champagne, luscious cocktails to sip, DJs playing chilled out vibes and hammocks to recline in around the freeform swimming pool, create the perfect sea-side playground for the beautiful to be seen.
Complete with a dynamic beach club, a panoramic sea-view restaurant, swimming pool and bar, function room, a beach spa and a well-equipped gym, nothing has been overlooked in the quest to indulge each guest. There will be only 42 rooms and suites plus 17 unique villas of Thai influenced design where private balconies or garden terraces add to the spacious comfort. Each guest accommodation features state-of-the-art facilities, exclusive natural Ayurah bath amenities, plush luxury towels, complimentary Wi-Fi throughout, in-room safe, LCD large-screen TV, an overflowing mini-bar plus tea and coffee making facilities.
The Akaryn Hotel Group flag already has under its umbrella the adults-only enclave of akyra Chura Samui at Chaweng Beach and the art-inspired all-suite hotel, the akyra Manor Chiang Mai. With the addition of Akyra Beach Club Natai Beach, their finesse in providing the finer things in life is spreading wings throughout Thailand.
