Visualise a tantalising holiday by the Andaman Sea, sipping your favourite drink without a worry in the world. That pretty much sums up the kind of holiday we all want, and are waiting to take once we’re ready to put the last few months of a nationwide lockdown behind us. It may be a good idea to plan now and vacation later! If we’re on the same page, allow us to introduce to you X2 Khao Lak Anda Mani Resort, a property by Thai-based hospitality group Cross Hotels & Resorts, which features just nine luxurious rooms with breathtaking views of the sea, pool, or lush garden. The surrounding green fields, rolling mountains, and small fishing villages offer a quiet and authentic atmosphere, while the first-class service and accommodations provide the cosmopolitan guest with the ultimate vacation experience.


Room types at the spectacular X2 Khao Lak Anda Mani Resort, located at the heart of Phang Nga Province in Thailand, include four suites with couple’s bath, two oceanfront villas with couple’s bath, and one each of a suite, a triple suite, and a villa with couple’s bath. While the suites are artfully designed to offer pure comfort and a stunning view of the resort’s natural surroundings, the couple’s bath in select rooms adds an edge of romance with a bathtub large enough for two.

The oceanfront villa is an epitome of luxury and elegance, and offers spacious living quarters, modern amenities, a couple’s bathtub, rain showers, and an open veranda with its own garden coupled with an endless view of the ocean and the surrounding lush vegetation. If that’s not dreamy, we wonder what is!

If you wish to step out of all that comfort and explore the neighbourhood, you’ll have enough to see and enjoy. The resort is located close to some of the most pristine beaches, vibrant markets, unique temples and authentic local fishing villages. It is also within a short drive of several national parks that are home to exotic wild animals, floral swamplands and beautiful waterfalls. Now, isn’t that thrilling?

Food made to order

Using only the freshest locally sourced ingredients, the 4K restaurant offers a unique culinary experience that combines Thai and international flavours to create savoury dishes that delight every palate. The chef at the resort can also tailor special meals for guests with dietary requirements.

In fact, guests can even opt for a Thai cooking class while at the resort! Thailand is famous for its flavourful dishes that feature a delightful blend of exotic tastes – sweet, sour, spicy, salty, bitter and savory. A cooking class will be a true culinary adventure and add to the zest!
