Casa De La Flora,
Thailand, West Coast and Islands
Info : Casa De La Flora
Overlooking the Andaman Sea and stretching along the soft sands of Khao Lak, the Casa De La Flora is one of Thailand’s most modern and technologically advanced hotels. Constructed from an eye-catching blend of wood, concrete and glass, the square-edged structures stand proud and distinct along the skyline.
With a total of 36 suites the resort is small enough to be intimate yet large enough to have a real sense of privacy. A central swimming pool and bar area overlooks the beach, whilst a separate restaurant is located further along the sands and offers a mix of contemporary Asian and European cuisine. The hotel also has a wine bar and restaurant in front of the property, open only at night and beautifully decorated with coloured lights, which is open to outside guests.
Other facilties include a well-equipped fitness centre and a library with iMac computers. Wifi is available free of charge throughout the resort. The Resort also have an activity centre 20 minutes drive away that offers a range of water and land based excursions. There are regular shuttles to get there and back.
Suites are split into a range of categories from the entry-level Beachfront Suite Pool Villa to the Presidential Suite. All suites have private plunge pools, complimentary mini-bar, wine fridge, huge bathtubs and separate rain showers. The two-bedroom suites are suitable for families or friends, although the resort is not an ideal place for children.
Amenities are top notch throughout. From the state-of-the-art Apple tv and entertainment systems (complete with wifi keyboard, internet and on demand movies) to designer furniture and fittings - each suite exudes a sense of modern sophistication. With minimal decorations, rich wood interiors and sparkling porcelain and fittings, the Casa De La Flora really does stand out when it comes to design and architecture.
Great food and service add to the architectural and deign influences to create a truly outstanding and cutting edge resort.
Luxury - Luxury hotels would have a superb level of service, very comfortable and usually spacious bedrooms, excellent food, great design and character. For us, when we visited, these places all had the 'wow factor'. A luxury hotel should satisfy the criteria of the most discerning clients.
I started doing a search on the net for specialists and came across Experience Travel Group. I liked a lot what I saw on their website so started an online dialogue with one of their operators. She quickly realised what we are looking for and got one of her colleges who was a specialist in this area. A chap called David Gookey called me back to chat about what we wanted. We gave David a brief for our budget and the type of things that we wanted to do and he did the rest. All I can say is he put together the perfect holiday, sorted out the best tours and some incredible hotels. All guides, flights, transport and transfers taken care of. If you're reading this David thank you once again.
