There are three ways of getting to Xana. Via the Main Entrance of Angsana or around the back past Movenpick, Bang Tao – take the second as you then understand why some wooden shack restaurants were forced off the beaches – a great view of sand a surf. The last option is to park at Canal Village and take the pontoon boat to Xana.
It’s just 100 meters from the car park and if you get hot quickly remember you can use the pool and the beach is close by.
Kids under 6 are free and can go to kids’ corner and have their face panted and kids aged between 6 and 12 are at half price – all in all a great place for a family day out. There were almost 150 people there the day we went but no queues – very pleasant and lots of local residents along with hotel guests.
There is a cocktail station, and the day we went, they were serving Bloody Mary or Bee Knee. Prosecco, White, Rose and Red wines as well as local beers are all available under the free flow package.
Its open air but lots of umbrellas and plenty of fans to make you feel comfortable…..and there is always the pool. There are 2 bars one near where most people sit and another just a short distance away beside the pool. This is not your usual 2 hour brunch, it’s more like 4-5 hours but you then need a driver.
Great choice of food including Thai, Spit Roast, Mexican, Indian and lots of seafood (but no oysters). Favourites of most people were the Burgers called MFY that won the Best Burger contest in Phuket, the Prime Roast Wagyu beef from Australia, the Foie Gras, the selection of cold cuts and cheese plus your usual selection of desserts.
New General Manager Brian Connelly and his staff have been fine tuning the offering which only opened on 11 October and will run until the end of April. Knowing Brian you know it will only get better.
