If you’re already enviable of the Victoria’s Secret Angels’ lifestyles, here’s one more thing that would make you more envious: four of them just went to Thailand for a holiday and stayed at one of the most luxurious villas in the world.
Sara Sampaio, Josephine Skriver, Lais Ribeiro and Jasmine Tookes headed to Ani Villas in Koh Yao Noi, Thailand, for a week-long retreat after their show in Shanghai.
The resort is known for its “togethering” concept, which means they get the resort to themselves. Of course, they didn’t stay there alone. The hotel told us that they went with seven other friends, including Josephine’s boyfriend, The Cab’s Alexander Deleon.
A night at Ani Villas in Koh Yao Noi can set one back between US$6,000 ($8,000) per night for a minimum of six villas, and US$18,000 ($24,000) per night for all 10 villas during Christmas/New Year period, which has an occupancy of up to 20 people.
According to the website, the resort was going for a rate of US$11,000 ($14,800) per night between November 20 and 26 – the dates the Angels were there.
In case your heart stopped after reading the price, we’ll have you know that it works out to around $740 per night per person, which is a pretty good deal considering it’s all-inclusive: your tours and transportation around the island, meals are all included in the price tag.
You’ll even get to enjoy free-flow wine and cocktails, which would have pretty much take up half of your vacay expenses if you love good alcohol.
It’s no wonder that the four Angels enjoyed their stay at the villa. Scroll through the gallery to read our interview with them.
Sara on hanging out with her fellow Angels
“I can’t say how lucky we are to all be friends. We get to see the world together, work together, and share so many incredible experiences together. Through the ups and downs it means so much to have these girls by my side.”
Josephine on travelling with her fellow Angels
“We are all extremely close, so when our schedules line up we love to travel together! This vacation was one of the most needed ever because we had just finished the show and had been working hard for months. [We] needed some downtime to relax and reflect on everything and celebrate. Ani Villas in Thailand was the perfect place to do it!”
Josephine on her favourite moments from the 2017 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show
“I loved that there was a moshpit and that some of the general public was able to come to the show. It brought so much energy and made it feel like a rock ’n’ roll concert! Also, the Victoria’s Secret collaboration with Balmain made it over-the-top awesome. The outfits were spectacular.”
Sara on her favourite moment during her stay
“The water slide was amazing! There was one time where it rained and we all just ran to the water slide and went down together. Rain or shine, we were on the slide having the time of our lives. How cool is it that the villa not only has an oceanfront, but also has a water slide!? They also made us dinner on the beach, which was beautiful and delicious.”
Sara on why they picked Thailand as a destination
“After all the hard work, it’s really important to find a place where you can relax, have a great time, and also have privacy. Having all three together is really hard to find, so that’s one thing that makes this villa very special! We always felt safe and right at home.”
Josephine on the best moments from the vacation
“The highlight for me was the staff. Chaya and the rest of the staff made us feel so at home so far away from home and really took the experience to the next level. They truly went above and beyond to make this one of the best trips of our lives. From the food, to the service and all of the jokes, smiles, and laughs… that really was the highlight for me.”
