Anantara Phuket Villas to host top international DJ

Anantara Phuket Villas will play host to the second annual Silk Rhythms Music and Fashion Show on 4 December. Guests will experience a sunset over the Andaman accompanied by the eclectic and melodic house tunes by the fashion world’s favorite DJ, Charles Schillings. Patrons will also be treated to a spectacular evening of Jim Thompson’s new summer silk collection shown off by top models. 

Now in its second year, the Silk Rhythms Music and Fashion Show is part of a culinary festival organised by the five northern Phuket resorts situated on Mai Khao, the island’s longest beach, with each resort hosting different events over three days. The festival celebrates the culinary talent and attractions of this unspoiled part of Phuket.

Guests will be able to chill out and mingle beside Anantara Phuket Villas’ infinity pool; sample cocktails created by international mixologists; enjoy a unique barefoot Coastal BBQ served in the infinity pool or snack on delicious Thai food from the markets stalls located on the lawn, and groove to the beats until late.

Charles Schillings is known for mixing eclectic and melodic House with Rock, Electro-Funk, Soul, Groove and Jazz. He has played at Rex and the Queen (Paris), Le Café d’Anvers (Belgium), Lotus (New-York) and Jet Set (Moscow). His resume includes sound design for Karl Lagerfeld and French brand Céline since 2006 along with spinning for special events for Calvin Klein, Louis Vuitton, Chopard and Armani.

Since signing with Pschent in 1996, he has mixed the six Overground House compilations, as well Club Pride and Elite Model’s Attitude with Felix and Hugo Boss. Besides his DJ and compilation work, Charles Schillings is also a composer, recording and producing his own music.


Since opening in October 2008, Anantara’s luxury Phuket resort has emerged as one of the most desirable destinations in Thailand, with 83 private villas; a tempting choice of restaurants and bars such as the stylish Tree House that winds around an old Banyan tree, and the beachside Sea.Fire.Salt, and leisure facilities ranging from Thai cooking classes and tennis to yoga and watersports.

Anantara Hotels, Resorts & Spas initially opened in the seaside town of Hua Hin and on Koh Samui in the Gulf of Thailand, and in the Golden Triangle in the country’s north. In the world-renowned destination of the Maldives, Anantara Dhigu and Anantara Veli are a 30-minute boat ride from the capital Male.

Anantara Seminyak debuted in April 2008 in the most fashionable district of Bali – the Island of the Gods. Late 2008 saw the opening of Anantara Phuket, situated in the serenity of Mai Khao Beach, Thailand, followed by Desert Islands on Sir Bani Yas Island off the coast of Abu Dhabi, and Anantara Si Kao which lies on the secluded Changlang Beach area south of Krabi, Thailand.

Anantara Baan Rajprasong in Bangkok opened its doors in April 2009 to become the first serviced suites property for the Anantara group, while Qasr Al Sarab opened in October 2009 in the legendary Liwa desert near Abu Dhabi.  In November 2009 with the unveiling of Anantara’s second Koh Samui hideaway, the Chinese-inspired Anantara Lawana nestling the island’s famously long Chaweng Beach, Anantara Koh Samui became known as Anantara Bophut.

2010 will see a trio of new properties welcoming guests across Asia and the Middle East to further enhance Anantara Hotels, Resorts & Spas’ enviable worldwide portfolio.  Anantara Kihavah Villas Maldives is poised for its grand opening in December, to be joined by Anantara Al Madina A’Zarqa in Oman, Anantara Sanya in China and Anantara Uluwatu in Bali in 2011.
