Introducing…. the Akyra Beach Club

By in Ethos Travel News, New Hotel Comments Off on Introducing…. the Akyra Beach Club

As ever we’ve been working (cough) hard to find you the pick of new, small, unique hotels throughout Thailand. We’ll be introducing a few of them over the next couple of weeks – along with re-introducing a couple of more familiar ones. But to start with here’s a wonderful small hotel we recently stayed at on quiet Natai beach. And from now until the end of June (and September – October) it’s only £799 per person (of course including flights, taxes, private transfers and 7 nights accommodation on a twin share basis). Anyway, here’s our review along with some gratuitous beach photos. You can read more about this little gem here:

The first thing to say about the akyra Beach Club Phuket is that it’s not in Phuket – rather the stunning empty Natai beach about 30 minutes north from Phuket Airport. And secondly – it’s not just a ‘Beach Club’ – it’s also a traditional hotel, and a very good one at that!

We were welcomed by a DJ set behind a Moet & Chandon booth – but playing very chilled out tunes that didn’t overpower the relaxed setting – and finished as the sun came down as you enjoyed the stunning Natai sunsets, and above all this is a friendly resort – for children, couples and family groups of all ages.

Rooms were a mixture of villas set amongst the gardens and 42 great value rooms and suites set in a block. Little bonuses (such as an ice cream parlour dishing out free ice cream between 2-3 every afternoon!) were common in this well thought out new ’hip’ destination, but it’s most important not to gloss over the glorious location. A mere 30 minutes north from Phuket Airport, the beach can be walked for hours, and the waters warm and generally calm (with occasional body surfing opportunities). The sunsets are glorious (and the beach bar & hammocks make for ideal sundowner spots). This is a lovely find – a great place to relax, chill and recharge.

Thailand Boat

Large small print:
– The number 5 is pronounced as ‘ha’ in Thai, which is why you often see ‘555’ written down in Thailand – which sounds like ‘hahaha’ or ‘lol’ if you prefer! We also think the £555 offer is our greatest ever Thailand deal – no laughing matter though!
– Valid for travel as per stated – but if you want to travel outside of these dates, let us know as fundamentally amazing prices are available (except Christmas & New Year – but that is really peak time in Thailand!)
– Availability is currently *really good* even for the £555 offer! But is dependent on airline & hotel availability which will change, so call soon to book
– The best deal in our opinion is the upgrade to Business Class for an extra £799 per person return for any of these offers.
– Offers based on 2 travelling, including taxes and private transfers (except for The Paradise Koh Yao – as you’re limited to scheduled boat departures, so you may well find yourself sharing)
– Of course we are THE South East experts, and happy to tailor make any trip for you – why not call us!
