Muang Kulaypan Hotel is situated on the island's north Chaweng Beach, best known as one of the most picturesque spots in Thailand with its powdery fine white sand and crystal clear water. Thanks to the resort’s 100 meter beach frontage, the resort’s guest rooms all have fabulous views of the sea and offshore islands.
The Design is inspired by a tale of Indonesian folklore introduced to Thailand during the Ayudhaya period and translated into the Thai language many years later by King Rama II. As a matter of fact, the historic Thai kingdom of Srivijaya was substantially influenced by the Javanese and enjoyed their powerful sovereignty in Southern Thailand for centuries. The Javanese tale of Inao is the legend of the romance of Prince Inao and Princess Budsaba set in the ancient city of Muang Kulaypan where this exotic love story unfolded. The designer of the hotel, profoundly inspired by the tale of Inao, has created a unique architectural style blending Zen form with Southern Siam and the life style reminiscent of its people. The large, central garden lends a palatial atmosphere fitting the inspiration while terraces and walkways are dotted with sculptures and aged bonsai trees alongside custom furnishings designed by the architect ML Archava Varavana.
