CASA DE LA FLORA made it on
CONDE NAST TRAVELER ?12 HOT LIST
Conde Nast Traveler magazine has published its 2012 Hot List of the best new hotels, restaurants, and spas in the world. Only 3 hotels in Thailand made the cut, and one of them is Casa de La Flora in Khao Lak. The other two are city hotels in Bangkok. This is a remarkable achievement. Conde Nast editors traveled incognito to 49 countries to visit new hotels across the world, evaluating each on a standard set of criteria including service, food, atmosphere and amenities. The 2012 Hot List features 121 new hotels and resorts, 35 of the world?s most blissful spas, and 20 hot new restaurants from 21 hot chefs.
The Hot List describes Casa de La Flora like this: ??what stands out is the beach ? bathwater-warm, marvelously empty, and visible from every bungalow. The strip of sand is narrow, but there are loungers and a small but adequate pool (all villas have plunge pools as well). Room details are well considered ? delicious rice-bran body lotion, deep stone tubs, rubber flip-flops??.
Note that Casa de La Flora is a member of Design Hotels and Kiwi Collection, located directly on the beautiful beach of Khao Lak in Thailand. It presents cutting-edge architecture and unique design amid tropical nature. All 36 private pool villas and suites offer a range of modern comforts for design and luxury lovers. Each villa is designed to allow guests to experience the environment from inside out, with large glass facades that widen the perspective when looking out to Cerulean Ocean.
The 16th annual Hot List will be published in the issue of Conde Nast Traveler magazine which dues out April 24. More information is also available at www.cntraveler.com/hotels/asia/thailand/casa-de-la-flora-phang-na-thailand
