Cruising the Thai islands in style: Kata Rocks launches luxury ‘Stay and Sail’ package
Sleek and sophisticated, offering a minimalist vibe with contemporary apartment sized suites, Kata Rocks is unlike anything else you will find in Thailand this year. With extraordinary sweeping views, the hotel is located near Kata, a clean-cut resort town, popular with the yachting crowd, on the south west coast of Phuket. With 34 one, two, three and four-bedroom Sky Villas stacked across the hillside – these are big, bright and beautiful, and come with the most amazing pools.
The floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors open onto private infinity pools, each of which is a minimum of seven-meters long. The furnishings are sleek and Italian-made, here it’s all white-on white: there are white linens, and white umbrellas shading white sunbeds beside a white-tiled pool. There is also an oceanfront restaurant, magnificent 35–metre swimming pool with poolside bar and its own jetty to allow access to visitors arriving on their private yachts.
Kata Rocks has just launched their exclusive ‘Stay and Sail’ package offering guests a three night stay in a three bedroom Sky Villa followed by three nights on board a 200-foot super yacht. This exclusive package allows the opportunity to discover the stunning Andaman Islands, cruising on board one of the world’s most extraordinary sailing vessels.
The Lamima yacht (pictured above) is brand new and just beginning to fill its impressive sails in and around Phuket meaning that guests of Kata Rocks have the opportunity to be amongst the first to experience this incredible voyage. The package begins with an all-encompassing stay at Kata Rocks, dining in the stunning restaurant and being pampered in the award winning Infinite Luxury Spa followed by stepping from Kata Rock’s private jetty onto the 200-foot yacht for three days of all inclusive sailing and exploring of the famous islands. This particular yacht can accommodate up to 14 guests in seven luxury suites, with rates inclusive of all water sports activities, spa, gourmet meals and drinks.
Mirroring Kata Rocks’ standards with their sleek simplistic design, the Lamima is the epitome of luxury from topsail to keel. Sailors will enjoy custom built surroundings with the specific intent of providing the ultimate in comfort, elegance and safety while maintaining the warm ambiance of traditional Thai hospitality.
Within the Private Sky Villas guests can effortlessly remain in the privacy of their own villa and not have to encounter a single other guest or pop down to the public pool and bar area. Sky Villas get booked up weeks in advance. With its futuristic super yacht design influences, wall to wall glass bringing the sunset inside, a bed overlooking the glimmering Andaman Sea, guests will feel like they’re floating on their very own super yacht with no other company in sight!
In addition to all of this Kata Rocks have also officially launched their rock star service giving guests the opportunity to holiday like a rock star. Kata Rocks’ staff or ‘rock stars’ go beyond any conventional level of service that one might expect from any other luxury resort and instead heighten the very definition of customer care. Upon arrival guests are given bespoke consultations to ensure an all-encompassing level of service, so that every stay will be one remembered for a lifetime.
In keeping with the name, Kata Rocks’ ambition is to ‘rock their guests’ worlds’; their ‘Rock Stars’ will do anything and everything required to bring the extraordinary to life. Whether partying under champagne showered brunches by the DJ booth or retiring for an afternoon of luxury treatments in their own Spa Villas, Kata Rocks tailors their entirely bespoke service to each and every desire. Extensive wellness treatments include energy pods and light-emitting treatment beds are on offer at Kata Rocks spa if guests fancy a day of pampering.
Kata Rocks’ ‘Stay & Sail’ package includes a luxury three night stay in a three bedroom Sky Pool Villa followed by three nights on board the 200-foot Lamima yacht, from £7,084.12/ US$10,725 per night. Ocean Front Villas start from £380 per night, including B&B.
