Photograph of the week: Dinner by Design on Mai Khao Beach, Phuket

This image was taken on a photo shoot for the Anantara Vacation Club in Phuket Mai Khao, without knowing that they had set up their “Dining by Design” for a couple staying at the resort. Having missed the second sunset as it was raining, the photographer was eager to get on the beach for a sunset shot and was extremely excited when he saw the staff setting up the table, as it meant he was able to capture this photograph. Just as he started packing away his gear, the couple arrived and were greeted with a warm Thai welcome. Talk about perfect timing! Thank you to Jon Raho Studios for permission to re-produce the image. If you have a really special photograph you would like to share with  A Luxury Travel Blog‘s readers, please contact us.

  1. Really great picture and place to plan visit as soon as it is possible. I watched “Life of Pi” recently and these colors remind me on a movie.
    Congratulations to the photographer!

  2. This photograph is a great picture of a very romantic moment! Jon, the photographer, had the chance to be in the perfect spot at the very right time

  3. I stayed for one incredibly romantic night at The Sarojin resort on Mai Khao Beach. A beautiful place to watch the sunset – any sunset is amazing, but the ones in and around Phuket are just perfect! :)
