4-bedroom Villas in Bang Tao, Phuket, Thailand

A holiday in Bang Tao offers seclusion and convenience, a combination often difficult to find. Bang Tao Beach is a six-kilometre sandy stretch that remains refreshingly authentic. The northern end near Layan Beach is relatively untouched, with Dream Beach Club adding a dash of glitz to the scene. The centre is dominated by the Laguna Phuket resort complex, a secure and upscale resort which is home to award-winning hotels such as Dusit Laguna Phuket and The Banyan Tree, along with a handful of luxury villas that remain in high demand. Within the complex, you will find Laguna Phuket Golf Course, several world-renowned spas, and more than 30 restaurants and bars at the six resorts, all within walking distance or a shuttle ride away.

The resort also has a marketplace where conveniences such as money changing facilities, medical clinics, pharmacies, massage centres and banks can be accessed. Stop for a bite at one of the western delicatessens before you head to the many shops where you can pick up a souvenir or two. The complimentary shuttle bus drops guests off at the Laguna Phuket entrance, where affordable foot spas and even more restaurants, some with live music, can be enjoyed. Things to do in Bang Tao are aplenty including the treasures of Boat Avenue, popular on the island for its shopping centre and the fabulous, high-end Villa Market grocery store where you can stock up if you plan to cook. New to the area, Porto de Phuket is a glamorous shopping centre where locals and tourists flock, offering a range of restaurants, shops and another high-end grocery store.

Those seeking nightlife excitement can head off towards Patong, a 20-minute (25km) drive south. Besides all the action at the bars and the clubs, Patong also has shopping opportunities at Jungceylon shopping mall and ‘knock-off’ goods markets. To the north of Bang Tao, Layan Beach is a secret well kept by Phuket’s local expat community. Coconuts languish in the sand, cleansed by the crystal clear waters. The beachfront is public but usually deserted, parking is available and, during the high-season, food and drink pedalled by vendors and beach massages are aplenty. Phuket’s international airport lies 30km to the north.

Laguna Residence 57/5

Laguna Residence 57/5

Thailand » Phuket » Bang Tao Beach » Bang Tao

We felt that the layout, size and design of this villa made it ideal for families and extended families. As well as the twin bedded room on the first floor (ideal for kids), the master bedroom is spacious enough for a baby cot and the queen bedroom on the ground floor would be great for elderly relatives. The maid’s room next to the utility area could also be an added attraction for those travelling with a helper.

Light flooded into the house during the daytime, and when we drew the pin-striped blinds at night they effectively wallpapered the rooms and completely transformed the atmosphere of the house. The gardens are generous and child-friendly, with a white wicker fence at the end of the lawn to make sure that youngsters don’t stray onto the fairway. Although there are other villas on both sides, we felt there was enough landscaping in between to give us adequate privacy. There are no live-in staff (although a manager is on call 24 hours a day) and the villa is primarily self-catering, but a maid cleans daily, pool boys and gardeners come twice a week, and a chef can be arranged with prior notice for a small fee. Food is prepared according to a menu at cost price. The management company can also assist with anything from trips and tours to transport, grocery shopping, maintenance and laundry services.

Layan Estate - Villa Omnia

Layan Estate - Villa Omnia

Thailand » Phuket » Bang Tao Beach » Bang Tao

Villa Omnia makes for a very pleasant family holiday home. It benefits from being on a mature estate so avoids much of the construction malaise from which other estates suffer. The villa itself is spacious and very light thanks to lots of glass doors and windows. It is very well set up for families – an outstanding pool with good shallow section, toys, playroom and plenty of outside space to let off steam.

As with many recent construction projects in Phuket, the build is not of the highest standard (patchy paint, light terrazzo cracks, plasterboard walls) but these issues are very minor and would not detract from a great holiday – and the complex has a management company to fix any problems. The privacy is excellent as are the outside options – a lovely sala at the end of the pool, pleasant outdoor dining and good sun-trap terraces with loungers. The kitchen is modern and well equipped – nice touches like iced glasses in the freezer – but comes with almost no provisions so a supermarket shop is essential. Bedrooms are large and comfortable and the bathrooms very practical although note that one queen and twin bedroom share a bathroom – good for a family as access to the twin is either from outside or through the queen room.

Maan Tawan - Thee Sahm Raan

Maan Tawan - Thee Sahm Raan

Thailand » Phuket » Bang Tao Beach » Bang Tao

Villa Thee Sahm Raan is one of the most balanced, well thought out and best presented villas we have seen in Phuket – it is probably why the owners use it a lot. It is the perfect holiday retreat for families or groups. The villa is clean, safe and enclosed, although the swimming pool is not fenced so non-swimmers would need to be watched. During our inspection we found the kitchen to be fully equipped – although the maid will do the cooking and grocery shopping if you want to escape those chores (provisions are on guest account).

The villa’s location is awesome – great beaches nearby, and convenient for restaurants, services, food and other shopping.

We revisited the villa three years after our first stay and were impressed to find that more facilities (including a computer and printer) and services have been added, thus we’re raising the review score a notch to reflect this. As well, Thee Sahm Raan is showing no signs of age – it is kept in pristine condition throughout.

Chom Tawan - Villa Samorna

Chom Tawan - Villa Samorna

Thailand » Phuket » Bang Tao Beach » Bang Tao

Villa Samorna is a very-well-cared-for and welcoming oasis.  Although the villa is on an estate, its position along the banks of a stream gives it a truly private and tranquil feel.  We enjoyed some lazy hours sipping drinks in the shade by the big pool, which – along with the garden – is a delight for kids.  During our brief visit we didn’t dine in, but we could have asked the villa’s long-time housekeeper Khun Aon to cook for us had we wished (extra charge applies).  We found her to be helpful and friendly and, having assisted the villa owners and many guests over the years, a fount of knowledge on the area – such as the best places to eat locally.    

We prefer being away from busy areas on holiday and in this regard Villa Samorna was the perfect choice, with the estate set along a quiet section of the beach that so far has seen little development.  Aside from a few people out on a stroll with their dogs, we didn’t come across any commercial activity at the beach in this area beyond the few simple restaurants nearby.  It’s isolated enough to enjoy your own private sunset views on the sand, and yet the five-star spas and restaurants of Laguna and vicinity are an easy five-minute drive away.  We had our own transport, which we’d recommend for guests staying here given Samorna’s location, though Khun Aom can easily arrange taxi services, too.
