Anantara Hotels, Resorts and Spas has launched the Anantara Private Jet Experience, an incredible voyage of discovery around the Maldives, Sri Lanka and Thailand.
Guests can now seamlessly combine luxurious stays at Anantara properties with the ease and convenience of private jet transportation. Signature hotels, Anantara Kihavah Maldives Villas and Anantara Peace Haven Tangalle Resort, have been intrinsically linked for the first time, offering a marvellous way to discover the hidden treasure of this breathtaking corner of the world.
Elevating the Anantara concept of luxury travel to new heights thanks to a partnership with MJets, the bespoke aviation airline, discerning travellers can now curate the ultimate tour of the Indian Ocean. Embarking in the fabled city of Bangkok, known for its vibrant street life and elaborate shrines, guests can soar between the luscious jungle and coconut fringed shores of Sri Lanka to the myriad blue tones of the spectacular Maldives.
Larger groups are easily accommodated in the Gulfstream V, with a three-zone cabin environment for working, dining, entertaining and resting, the GV is the natural choice for ultimate luxury travel. Amenities including shower facilities, fully reclining beds, state of the art entertainment systems and two flight attendants, are sure to deliver guests in a state of blissful relaxation.
The Cessna Citation X, is perfect for more intimate groups accommodating up to eight passengers in utmost comfort. As one of the fastest business jet in the world, its interiors boast aesthetically pleasing and spacious cabins with no compromise on luxury and comfort. Features include fully reclining body club seats, entertainment systems and one flight attendant for optimal, personalised service. Sip champagne and feel the stress melt away as the shores of Sri Lanka emerge.
Upon touching down at the Bandaranaike International Airport in Colombo, transition seamlessly from the runway to a waiting private limousine ready to whisk travellers to their awaiting slice of heaven; a private villa overlooking the bay of Anantara Peace Haven Tangalle. Sheltered by a crescent of golden sand, Anantara Peace Haven Resort is an unexplored paradise located in Tangalle on Sri Lanka’s southernmost shore.
At a resort where indulgence blends authentic indigenous elements and international flair, activities in Tangalle are endless, ranging from Aryurvedic Wellness Journeys to exhilarating surfing and personalised spa experiences. After dining on sustainably sourced cuisine, brought from farm to cliff side table by a private chef, master the art of Sri Lankan cuisine by taking an exclusive cooking class. Toast the ocean views from a private veranda and relax as the sun dips below the horizon signalling the end of another day in paradise.
As soon as a fleeting hint of restlessness takes hold again, guests can summon a private jet to take off to the spectacular Maldives. From the window of a private seaplane, watch as the 26 atolls unfurl below, stretched like a necklace across innumerable shades of blue oceans. Upon arrival at Anantara Kihavah Maldives Villas, it is clear that nature reigns. Overwater villas feature a two-tiered deck with shaded swinging daybed, dining area and ocean hammocks above, and a sunny lower deck with loungers and steps into the lagoon. Choose the sunset side of the island for evenings tinged with fiery blush. Villas are at one with natural surroundings, with coconut trees jutting through some of the villas’ ceilings and lush canopies offering shade and seclusion.
By day, those with a taste of adventure will be satiated by the unparalleled diving accessible from the coral reefs. Dip toes into the aquamarine lagoon of a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve and snorkel with mantas and whale sharks or stroll along immaculate, snow-white beaches. By night, be transported to a faraway galaxy with a private stargazing session in the only observatory in the southern Indian Ocean.
The Anantara Private Jet Experience can be tailored to suit each guest’s individual tastes and requirements and scaled to accommodate intimate couples’ celebrations or larger group parties. Begin a quintessentially Anantara journey by contacting one of the experience butlers for more information.
