Thailand is a place of twists and turns, from the quixotic streets and appetizing aromas of the streets of Bangkok to the overwhelming beauty of its islands that it’s almost like a beautifully wrapped gift that beckons to be opened every time you arrive, each time containing something completely different. Beaches and exotic intrigue might be the first ideas to come to mind when thinking Thailand but as you might have guessed, there’s another surprise angle that’s absolutely worth considering. The ever-so-sustainable luxury sanctuary of Thanyamundra- the ultimate personalized rejuvenation program for the body, mind and soul...all set on an organic farm in the limestone mountains of Khao Sok National Park.

2 Hours drive from Phuket leads you to a most inspired retreat on a farm hidden in the forest, where butlers await to cater to your every whim, where talented massage therapists pamper from head to toe, where experts in visual arts and fitness work alongside you to achieve your personal goals, and where the finest chefs delight in elegantly preparing the most delectable Asian and SLOW-cooked comfort food from organic produce such as red snake beans, luscious eggplants, passion fruit, avocados and Thai spices that you can harvest yourself. There’s nothing like the blissful feeling of preparing your own Tom Yum Gai or green curry as you overlook the lush greenery, with a sommelier by your side assisting you in selecting the perfect complement to your meal.

With a capacity of just 20 guests max, each visitor is ensured completely personalized service and serenity in any of the rustic-chic rooms, suites or villas, all decorated with high tech fare and Thai silk touches and gentle rainshowers. It’s diminutive size is deceptive, for their fitness, wellness, adventure and creative programs are hugely expansive from invigorating jungle treks to track down long-tailed macaque monkeys and elephants, to cooking, to painting and creative writing, to even working on the organic farm. It’s a retreat like none other, in a place like none other...
