Thanya Resort

Our rating:
4 stars, based on 1 expert review

Arguably the most romantic resort on Ngai, Thanya Resort’s dark-wood villas overlook the island’s best patch of sand at the far southern end of the main beach.

Inspired by a mix of Thai, Balinese and Japanese influences, the freestanding villas are made of teakwood or concrete and feature heavenly beds draped in mosquito nets, stained glass touches, traditional Thai art, elegant hot-water bathrooms, sliding doors with floor-to-ceiling glass and wide outdoor terraces with tables. The sea-view rooms also bag you private gardens with ceramic vases out the back. Note that some verandas have no railings so are not safe with young kids and toddlers.

Ideal for couples, all villas come with air-con, fridges and coffee/tea facilities, but no TVs. Rates depend mainly on proximity to the beach, though prices go up a bit for the newest concrete villas built atop the hill that backs the resort, as these have the best views. If taking a room just below these, your view will be almost completely obstructed by the villas in front.

Stone walkways meander past frangipani trees and birdbaths on the way to a small dark-tile swimming pool and restaurant set beside the sand with loads of cushioned loungers. We saw a couple of hornbills hanging here, and a moat is situated at the centre of the property. You’ll also find a massage sala and diving outfit based here.
