such as the Xanajito (Ten Cane rum, muddled
lime and mint leaves, local mangosteen and maoberry juice) and the

Xana features a 35 metre swim-up pool bar overlooking the beach
and sea beyond. Four exclusive cabanas accommodate up to 14 people
each and can be reserved in advance, while double and single
loungers that offer a front row view of the Andaman Sea are
available on a first-come, first-served basis. The second storey
rooftop deck functions as an area for VIP guests and offers an
ideal perch from which to witness colourful sunsets. The lounge
area on the front lawn is ideal for guests who prefer to relax
under the shade of pine trees. There is also a covered area for
dining featuring cocktail table seating from which to welcome the
night as the beat goes up tempo. Sunsets at Xana bring the “Secret
Sunset Sessions” featuring a rotating cast of performers that
“spontaneously” stage a short show every evening.
Xana transforms into a sultry bar and al fresco club where the
music’s tempo rises and LED lights in the pool add to the party
atmosphere. Resident DJ and Music Director Frank Richards spins an
eclectic and uplifting mix of down tempo, lounge, chill out, house
and deep house, all with a touch of funk, soul and disco. The
evening’s music will progress from relaxing, soothing sounds to an
upbeat selection of tunes to encourage dancing. Internationally
renowned DJs will be flown in regularly to create themed club
To celebrate the official opening of Xana on 30
June, celebrity DJ Paul Harris of Grammy award-winning British
music trio Dirty Vegas will be spinning, along with DJs Gary Gecko
of Koh Samui and Frank Richards from the USA. The opening party
begins at 16:00 with the inaugural Secret Sunset Session and
extends well into the night with DJ sets until 01:30.
With its multi-levels and picturesque beachfront location, Xana
can accommodate up to 1,000 guests. Accommodation for groups
both large and small can be facilitated at the newly opened resort
