Anchalika Kijkanakorn, founder and managing director of AHMS – The Collection, which owns and operates the Aleenta, AKARYN and akyra resort brands said: “Based on the success of the Great Mates Escape last year, Aleenta Phuket is re-launching the Great Mates Escape, and to show we believe in putting friends first, we’ve added some great extra benefits to sweeten the deal.

For every ‘Great Mates Escape: First Mates’ holiday experience booked, we’ll throw in a Private Bartender at your villa upon request, a private cocktail sundowner session for your party on our glamorous new rooftop bar, a luxury beachfront 3-bedroom villa, a private barbecue on the beach, and an exclusive Ayurah Spa wellness assessement for you and your mates, on the house.”

Later last year the resort opened Ayurah Wellness Centre, which features treatments by UK-celebrity beauty practioneer Linda Meredith, and 34 new garden pool villa sanctuaries come on stream this month, totalling THB300 million in new works.

Great mates who make their escape to Aleenta will dine in style, live it up, and above all, relax. The possibilities are as broad as your imagination: Beach barbecues, Frisbees, beach cricket and footy, seafood feasts, cold beers on ice, and the finest wines available in the fridge. A big screen for the big games, movie nights, picnics, beachcombing, excursions to Thailand’s ‘Emerald Forest’, Khao Sok National Park and private chartered boat to Phang Nga Bay, where James Bond island and Phi Phi are amongst the island havens that await.

First 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 (
