Ani Thailand

We are excited to announce today, Valentine's Day, that our 2023 Group Wellness Retreat will take place at ANI - Thailand.

Located on the unspoiled island of Koh Yao Noi within two acres of lush, well-tended gardens, ÀNI offers an entire, all-inclusive, private resort designed exclusively for a single group of guests. With spellbinding oceanfront views, the resort can accommodate up to 20 guests and offers direct access to a sandy beach overlooking the turquoise waters and limestone islands of Phang Nga Bay.

Designed to maximize the property’s breathtaking views, the resort comprises gracious free-standing structures with distinctive, pointed rooflines inspired by Northern Thailand’s ancient Lanna architecture. The lofty Arrival Pavilion overlooking the resort and its verdant seaside setting is connected via stairs and elevator to the abundance of living and dining areas, set around the vast main swimming pool. Serene and utterly private, all guest accommodations boast vaulted ceilings and large bathrooms. Inside the aesthetic is more contemporary, with Thai teak touches and an elegant palette of textured soft furnishings.

ÀNI offers every facility and service a group of guests could possibly desire during their stay. The glass-walled, air-conditioned Living Sala is complemented by an open-sided Dining Sala – both with incredible views of the bay. There is also a double spa treatment room with jacuzzi, and a fully equipped gym.

Open-air settings for dining and relaxation include a sunken lounge deck, a rooftop meditation area, the garden, and the beach, while the games area, waterslide, and in-pool chess and backgammon provide hours of entertainment. The resort’s discreet and dedicated team of 22 is available around the clock to tailor every detail – from special dining, cultural, and wellness moments, to exploration of the region – to ensure a bespoke experience that defies expectations.
