Why Stay At Casa de la Flora
An ultra-modern beach resort in the small village of Khao Lak on Thailand's western coast, just an hour north of Phuket.
The Thai village Khao Lak occupies a serene swath of Andaman coastline lined by lush rainforest and bordered by crystalline sea. It's there that the low-lying, palm tree-dotted Casa de La Flora resort is set on the white sand. The modern design takes full advantage of the beachfront location: the 36 square-shaped villas have private rainwater plunge pools and floor-to-ceiling glass doors that look out onto the lapping waves. Book some time at the four-room spa, designed with minimalist textures (stark wood walls; carved Thai sculptures), or venture out into the hotel's private mangrove forest for an al fresco massage.
Take advantage of the complimentary on-site bikes rentals and ride three miles into Khao Lak Village—with a box lunch prepared by the hotel, of course.
The "Totally Casa" is a nearly four-hour spa program that includes foot therapy, a Thai herbal steam, and pressure-point therapy ($270).
Arrive at Phuket International Airport (HKT) which is approximately 50 miles from the resort. Anticipate about 90 minutes of travel time.67/213 Moo 5 Khuk Khak, Khao Lak, Phang-nga, Thailand
