Thoughts of blue skies and blue waters are what keep us going now that the nights are drawing in and the temperature is dropping. Two of our team are preparing for a press trip to Thailand in the new year, and are hoovering up information about the country and its superlative five-star beach escapes – regaling us with tales of white, sandy beaches, still-jumping seafood and five star island luxury. Anantara are one of our favourite luxury resort destinations out east and their most remote spot, Anantara Si Kao Resort & Spa (just south of Krabi), is now offering its guests day trips to the Koh Kradan Beach Club, located on one of the most beautiful stretches of sand in the region. Take an exhilerating speedboat trip out to the 240-acre Koh Kradan island, which belongs to the Chao Mai National Park. While you’re there, as well as taking in the solitude and beauty, you can kayak and windsurf in the crystal clear waters, go snorkelling, or just indulge in delicious food cooked on-site. Lie back, let the wonderful staff cool you with chilled towels and feel the water lapping around your toes.
The beach club is for the exclusive use of Anantara Si Kao guests and is available from November to April, and from May to October, weather permitting.
