Great Mates, Greater Phuket: What Going Left at Phuket Airport Delivers

Monday, June 10, 2013
PHUKET: Lazy days, amazing stays and mates' rates are back at Aleenta Phuket-Phang Nga Resort and Spa as the award-winning boutique resort once again throws open its private beachfront mansion collection to posses of players, girlfriends, couples, singles and assorted other best friends.

This unique promotion, which is set to become an annual event, puts the life of an Ultra High Net Worth Individual within reach, with 2, 3 and 4-bedroom absolute beachfront villas with 12m to 26m private pools up for grabs for groups of mates - starting from 115,465 baht or A$3724 for four persons over four nights.

The visionary boutique resort pioneer and founder of the AHMS Collection, Anchalika Kijkanakorn, said the Great Mates Escape was an innovative idea based on the simple concept of sharing.

''A fantasy escape is suddenly much more attainable when the cost of the villa is shared between a group of friends or several couples,'' she said.

''Some of our villas like Grand Villa Satis and Grand Villa Air are truly amazing and can comfortably accommodate groups of up to six or eight.''

The Great Mates Escape begins by taking a left turn out of Phuket airport: while the rest of the herd turns right towards the madding crowds of Phuket to fight for their place in the sun, the intelligent escapee slides onto the buttery leather seat of a BMW 5 Series or luxury people-mover and turns left towards the pristine white sands and sparkling seas of Natai Beach, home to Aleenta Phuket Phang-Nga and its Private Collection of stand-alone beachfront villas.

Think of it: a cool collection of couples, a Hen's Night that lasts all week long, or perhaps a warm and friendly family affair. Party like a rock star. Live in your own chick flick. Laze, graze, play, imbibe and be at one with a whole new level of luxury.

''Jaded travellers who think they have 'done' Phuket should think again, because they haven't done it in this kind of style, and taking that left turn to the spectacular beauty of Phang Nga and our gorgeous Natai Beach makes all the difference,'' Ms Kijkanakorn said.

''We call it 'Leftism'. Making the turn onto the road less travelled, where adventure still exists.''

Dine in style, live it up, and above all, relax. Beach barbecues, Frisbees, beach cricket and footy, seafood feasts, cold beers on ice, and the finest wines available in the fridge.

Big screen for the big games, movie nights, picnics, beachcombing. Lavish indulgence upon yourself and your mates with delightful spa sessions to detox.

But when the sun goes down . . . the retox! Cruise into the heart of Phuket's action to paint the town red and shop until you drop.

Great mates also give back. You can store up some good karma by releasing a baby turtle back into the wild at the nearby Koh Kloi Turtle Sanctuary, supported by Aleenta's Pure Blue Foundation, where good work is done to save endangered marine turtles.

And if you wish to range further afield, Aleenta can tailor make excursions to Thailand's Emerald Forest, Khao Sok National Park, with gourmet picnics and private chartered boat to Phang Nga Bay, where James Bond island and Phi Phi are among the island havens that await.

Aleenta villas offer a thoughtful take on five star amenities and luxury, sustainable where possible, including complimentary in-villa sunset bar on arrival, private check-in at your villa, complimentary gourmet breakfast daily, private swimming pool, separate dining and kitchen areas, private chef, high-speed Wi-Fi access, daily newspaper delivery and complimentary airport transfers.

Rates are inclusive of:

..Luxurious accommodation in the Private Villa of your choice

..Return transfers from Phuket International Airport by luxury BMW or by luxury Van depending on number of passengers

..Daily gourmet breakfast breakfast served by your private butler and chef

..Master Cocktail and Mixing class on the lawn of your villa

..Cooking class with a twist for your party on the beach, in residence or on your private lawn

..Visit to Aleenta's Pure Blue Foundation sponsored Sea Turtle Sanctuary and Rehabilitation centre, plus release of a turtle into the wild

..Great Mates Downtown Phuket Shopping and Nightlife tour, with 8 hour private car or van with driver.
