20 brand new 68sqm suites provide direct access to mineral-rich lava stone pool

Luxury hotel brand, The Pavilions Hotels & Resorts has confirmed the reopening of its newly extended all-suite sustainable resort The Pavilions Anana Krabi in Thailand from 1 March 2022, following the addition of 20 brand new Pool Access Suites. First opened in February 2021 on the southern west coast of Thailand's famous Phang Nga Bay, the 79-suite ecological resort puts sustainability, nature and wellbeing centre stage. From the on-site permaculture ‘farm’ supplying its kitchens to silken swimming pools of uniquely mineral-rich water sourced from the neighbouring limestone mountains - now directly accessible from the new 68sqm Pool Access Suites - the resort is truly rooted in its destination.

Framed by views of the towering green-clad limestone cliffs and serene forest valleys of Krabi, the 10 ground floor and 10 first floor Pool Access Suites are peaceful oases centred around a shared lava stone pool, just a few short steps away via private terrace or private balcony and spiral staircase respectively. Featuring king size beds; 57” LED TVs; espresso machines; and complimentary arrival minibar and wifi, the contemporary new suites are a luxurious addition to the hotel’s range of accommodation. The 32sqm Thai Studios, 34sqm Spa Studios and spacious 55sqm Spa Suites all benefit from private outdoor space from which to soak up the verdant surroundings; whilst the Family & Friends rooms, with their two-plus-two queens and bunkbeds configuration, provide a versatile retreat for families or groups of friends.

The resort has also added a new restaurant, Botanica, specialising in Thai and Indian cuisine whilst continuing its healthy emphasis on plant-based cuisine. All ingredients are sourced from local artisan producers or the resort’s on-site organic permaculture plantation, ‘The Farm’. Powered by the regenerative principles of composting and water conservation, this one-acre ‘art farm’ and oyster mushroom nursery provides a memorable, sustainable farm-to-fork experience. Alfresco dining overlooking the main 35-metre lava stone infinity pool is available for breakfast, lunch and dinner, whilst up on the roof the iconic ANANA Sky Lounge serves up sundowners and magical sunset chilling, with green-hued, 360-degree views of the mountains and forests of Aonang and the Andaman Sea beyond.

The Asana Spa by The Pavilions meanwhile invites guests to ‘Revive, Refresh and Restore’ through naturally inspired wellness experiences, including carefully balanced hot and cold treatments in the Himalayan Salt Spa; a yoga shala set amidst the permaculture farm; open air gym; panoramic outdoor sauna; and a herbal steam room. Therapies and treatments blend traditional Thai healing techniques with organic essential Thai oils and herbs to create a unique all-natural spa experience.

The Pavilions Anana Krabi offers three Curated Journeys - The Pavilions’ signature brand experiences - and a range of bespoke excursions and activities designed to celebrate the resort’s unique natural environment. Memorable ways to discover the destination include exploring the local mangroves by solar-powered longtail boat; visiting Aonang’s only ethical elephant sanctuary; and biking or hiking the challenging 3.7km trail up Khao Ngon Nak National Park’s Dragon Crest Mountain to witness one of Thailand’s most epic viewpoints. Guests also benefit from privileged access to the nearby private Aqua Beach Club, offering watersports; beach weddings and events; and authentic local Thai cuisine.

With the reopening of The Pavilions Anana Krabi, The Pavilions Hotels & Resorts now has a total of 10 owned or managed hotels and resorts in operation across Asia and Europe, with a further three in the pipeline.

Tropical Sky (01342 395465; tropicalsky.co.uk) offers a seven-night stay at The Pavilions Anana Krabi from GBP1,099 per person, based on two adults sharing a Pool Access Suite and return economy flights from London.
