Anantara Mai Khao Phuket Villas is a luxurious resort, ideally located in northern Phuket on the secluded Mai Khao Beach. With plenty of activities, dining options and private pool villas, this is a great option in Thailand for couples and families.

Whilst Phuket is well-known for its buzzing nightlife, and often busy beaches, Anantara Mai Khao Phuket Villas boasts a tranquil location to the north of the island away from the crowds. With only a small handful of resorts in this area, the sandy beach feels wonderfully secluded, and yet there are plenty of activities available to keep guests busy should they wish.

The hotel's 91 pool villas are set back from the beach, dotted around the resort and beside the lagoon, ensuring plenty of privacy. The decor is inspired by Thai architecture, with spacious indoor and outdoor areas. All of the villas also have good-sized private pools.

Anantara Mai Khao Phuket Villas offers a wide choice of gourmet dining options, including Thai, tapas and seafood barbecue. As well as a lovely beachfront infinity pool, facilities include an excellent spa, bicycles, tennis courts, gym and cooking school. You can even try your hand at Muay Thai with a professional instructor, and there are yoga and aerobics classes. There are also non-motorised watersports, including windsurfing, kayaking and sailing. Families are well catered for, with tailored activities and a great Kids Club.

Arthur Pope (Staff)

The Anantara Mai Khao is a lovely compound of villas set in a quiet plot bordering the beach.  Traditional Thai design in an upscale setting, the villas here are tastefully appointed and private, with a plunge pool accessible straight from the bedroom.  With an emphasis on fresh seafood and many excellent dining choices ranging from local to Indian, International, and even Middle Eastern cuisines, this resort is a true crowd pleaser.  The compound is easily lazily traversed by complementary bike and the long, clean beachfront makes for lovely sunset strolls.  A true gem.


Louise Canton (Staff)

These private villas set on tranquil green grounds make this a wonderful hotel, perfect for a tranquil stay. The facilities are excellent and there's an indulgent spa should you tire from strolling the lengthly sandy beach.


Katie Kennard (Staff)

The villas are spacious and authentic in design. The Thai restaurant is great, it looks particularly striking at as the tables are lit up beautifully. I would recommend it to families and couples, the beach is very big, and it is possible to explore other restaurants if you want variety.


Evi-Elli La Valle (Staff)

The location of the Anantara is fantastic and it is easy to forget that you are on Phuket. Mai Khao is the longest beach on Phuket and is a protected area as it is where giant turtles come to lay their eggs. You can walk along the beach for ages and it is pretty quiet and peaceful compared to some other Thai beaches, even though the bright lights of Patong are just a taxi ride away.
