Forget nightmares of running late to the office and wake up to find yourself on a luxury escape at Natai Beach in Phang Nga Province, Thailand, just 40 minutes north of Phuket.

This is no tropical mirage — it's a five-night stay for two in a deluxe room at the Maikhao Dream Resort & Spa, Natai Beach for just $841. Or, upgrade to a garden terrace room for $973 or a pool terrace room for $1,236. Be one of the first 100 people to purchase the garden terrace and you'll get the room for just $873.

Each room in this intimate five-star resort off the southwest coast of Thailand is elegantly designed in modern Thai style — expect vibrant colours, polished wood, spacious comfort, and spectacular sea views. You'll also get a fruit basket, a bottle of red wine, daily housekeeping, turn-down service with homemade chocolates each evening, a spacious ensuite, a DVD and sound system and a daily English-language newspaper.

Wake up to an expanse of blue sky and sea, then wander barefoot past the palm trees to the beach for your included full breakfast. Take a dip in the sea or the pool, or unwind with your sweetheart during a 90-minute hot-compress herbal spa treatment at the resort's exclusive Maikhao Dream Spa. You'll also get 20% off additional treatments.

Make waves during a four-hour kayaking tour, or put up your dukes for a Thai boxing lesson — all for 40% off. Or, stay in your room and soak up the cool breeze blowing off the Andaman Sea while you send e-mails to make your colleagues jealous using the complimentary Wi-fi. Then, feast on dinner and drinks at one of the six elegant indoor or outdoor restaurants for 20% off.

As if you weren't already planning your return trip, you'll receive a $200 voucher for your next visit. Leave your ordinary existence behind and find yourself in a waking dream on this stunning beach escape.
