The finest textiles from the famed Jim Thompson collection play an important role in enhancing the luxury of the two-bedroom villa now available at Anantara Mai Khao Phuket Villas.
A sweeping sanctuary nestled in 389 sqm of tropical Bill Bensley gardens, the two-bedroom Royal Villa by Jim Thompson is just steps from Mai Khao’s white sand beaches and Anantara Mai Khao’s many delights.
Two bedrooms and a living room overlook a private 67-sqm pool with a spacious sun deck, while a traditional Thai sala extends over the lagoon.
Drawing inspiration from the natural surroundings of Mai Khao, the villa blends Jim Thompson fabrics into its designs.
The living room is filled with fabrics shaded blue and white for a nautical feel, offset by woods with sandy hues.
Both bathrooms tempt with terrazzo bathtubs and open-air, but secluded, showers. The villa’s flooring is natural Thai Makha, a rare hardwood prized for its gorgeous patina and unique grains.
Classic Thai Pikul flower designs adorn the internal doors and mini bar, while elegant Thai artwork and carvings leave no question of the Jim Thompson Villa’s Thai heritage.
The master bedroom’s centrepiece is Jim Thompson’s Heliconia Dreamin’, inspired by the exotic Heliconia flower that still flourishes at Jim Thompson’s former home, creating a vibrant lightness that extends to the swimming pool and sala.
The twin bedroom features Floriental, a whimsical print of birds and butterflies frolicking among peonies, for a playful atmosphere overlooking the pool and gardens.
Along with the Anantara Spa products provided in every villa, a complimentary set of the Bvlgari Guest Collection awaits guests.
“We have a passion for enhancing our pool villas so guests can enjoy the full beauty of Anantara Mai Khao, inside and out,” said Nikolaus Priesnitz, general manager of Anantara Mai Khao.
“The two-bedroom Royal Villa by Jim Thompson offers a secluded retreat with luxury amenities and is ideal for families, while highlighting the gorgeous designs of a truly beloved Thai treasure.”
