Conferred each year, the Thailand Property Awards is the premier real estate event in Thailand, attracting entries from leading developers, consultants, architects and interior designers.  For the past eight years, the Thailand Property Awards have showcased the best real estate and hospitality ventures in the country.  The newly open Anantara Vacation Club Phuket Mai Khao earned two coveted awards, including “Best Shared thailandaward2013Ownership Development” for the second year in a row, and a “Highly Recommended” in the “Best Architectural Design” category.

With a design by the award-winning Stephen O’Dell of SODA, the resort’s layout and architecture are inspired by its unique location on the edge of the Sirinath National Park, a lush tropical environment adjacent to Mai Khao Beach. The surrounding verdant foliage provides the serene backdrop for a contemporary Thai village that takes its cultural cues from the peaceful rural landscapes that dot the countryside.

Anantara Vacation Club Phuket Mai Khao offers 70 luxurious suites and 30 spacious pool villas along with a swim-up lagoon pool, kids club, state-of-the-art fitness centre and an assortment of restaurants and bars.  The architecture and interior styling seamlessly merge traditional Thai with contemporary design, creating a signature Thailand resort experience.  Building materials include local laterite stone, tropical woods and bamboo.  Works of art created by artisans from Phuket and Chiang Mai are found throughout the resort’s guest rooms and public spaces. The architectural and interior design also minimizes its footprint with the use of locally-sourced sustainable materials and energy efficient systems and operations.
