You have vacationed in resorts surrounded by forests. You have vacationed in resorts surrounded by seas and oceans. Now try staying in a resort surrounded by limestone pinnacles. Trust us, you will forget forests and oceans. This is one of the most beautiful expressions of nature.
And as always, Six Senses has captured this beauty, and presented it along with villas nestled between tress, each having a private infinity pool. The Six Senses Hideaway Yao Nai is located on the Yao Nai Island, between Phuket and Krabi, among the limestone peaks of Phang Nga.
You can sense the relaxation seep in as soon you land at the Phuket airport and reach Six Senses by a 45-minute motor boat ride or 15-minute helicopter service. The 56 pool villas have private butlers and panoramic natural scenery. Interior villas are shaded by untamed lush vegetation. Wake up to the sound of birdsong. If possible, indulge in the 16,000-square-foot Hilltop Reserve, a three-bedroom wooded palace with a dedicated staff of four and a 500-bottle wine cellar.
The Main House accommodates all the dinning and entertaining activities. From several pathways in The Main House, one leads to The Den and a library to the left, and a bar to the right. The library features a duplex wine cellar. The open-plan bar is also on two levels. The bar offers a taste of Thailand with a noodle bar plus a selection of specialty regional dishes. This area also has a small conference room. A second pathway leads down to the dinning areas. Do have a stroll around the Six Senses Gallery en route. It has an array of gift ideas, furnishings and apparel.
Close to the beach, The Living Room & Terrace is an all-day dining area offering alfresco or undercover seating. Constructed from traditional material, The Living Room offers tempting buffets at breakfast and dinner. It also has an open cold-kitchen and patisserie, where you can wander in and help yourself. The Living Room has options galore, from tandoori and pizza ovens to an open grill. It truly is a feast for the eyes and the taste buds. You can also join the specialty cuisine evenings and watch dishes being prepared. The atmosphere is very relaxed, with large comfortable seating areas offering booths and banquettes, and extending to the outdoor Terrace. There are also several outdoor dining pavilions.
The Dining Room offers fine Mediterranean cuisine. A central split-level structure features a chef’s table on the top level, plus a cooking station wrapped around with one long table. The main dining area is on the lower level, with several private dining pavilions scattered in the wild mangroves and plantation palms. A tranquil water feature meanders through this area. The organic vegetable garden is close at hand for the freshest salads.
This resort is the perfect place to indulge in some romance. With stunning sceneries around you, the villa butler can arrange for a champagne breakfast, a private picnic or an evening barbecue beneath the stars, with a personal chef and waiter at the ready.
Six Senses Spa
One of the specialties of the Six Senses brand, The Holistic Six Senses Spa provides a truly relaxing and revitalizing experience. Skilled therapists create sensory journeys for guests with a range of holistic wellness and pampering treatments. The spa, situated in the lush tropical forested hillside, is styled after an Asian long-house. There are several separate treatment salas and a gym too.
A place to laze and pamper yourself in, this resort by Six Senses surpasses all its other properties in beauty, elegant setting and privacy.
