Live out your silver-screen dreams at Anantara Resorts in Phuket

Step into the sun-kissed world of the chart-topping Mother of the Bride and live out your silver-screen dreams in the very locations that charmed over 26.7 million Netflix viewers worldwide in its debut weekend.

Directed by Mark Waters, who is known for his work on Freaky Friday and Mean Girls, the hit romantic comedy was filmed at Anantara Layan Phuket Resort and Anantara Mai Khao Phuket Villas and is a love letter to the enchanting island of Phuket in Thailand.

For a taste of celebrity life with a full suite of VIP services and amenities, book the Two-Bedroom Royal Villa by Jim Thompson, which Brooke Shields’ character Lana called home during filming.

Nestled just a whisper away from the soft, white sands of Mai Khao Beach, this showcase of Thai craftsmanship is adorned with the finest silk, paying homage to Jim Thompson, the pioneer of Thailand’s silk industry.

Alternatively, opt for the sprawling Pool Villa, which offers perfect seclusion and comes complete with a generous supply of fluffy towels—ensuring you never find yourself in a compromising situation like Benjamin Bratt’s character Will.

Diehard romantics can trace the fleeting romantic journey of Brooke Shields and Chad Michael Murray (Lucas) with a yoga session by the pool and starlit cocktails at the Tree House or re-live the tension-filled pickleball match between the titular character and her love interest.

To look the part of movie stars, visit the Anantara Spa, where the characters relaxed with their mud facials. To see more of Phuket’s cinematic paradise, holidaymakers can cross the sandbar to a secluded beach for a gourmet picnic, take a longtail boat to the jungle-shrouded Lover’s Cove, or enjoy a spot of shopping in Phuket Old Town.

And for those who find themselves never wanting to leave, Anantara Mai Khao Phuket Villas offers long-stay packages that promise an extraordinary adventure where the only thing scripted is luxury.
