Jivana Beach Villas - Villa Jia Reviews

As a beach escape, Villa Jivana Jia takes a lot of beating. Its location is excellent as is the long list of in-villa facilities and the accompanying service. We liked the five-star-hotel-style greeting, with cold towels and welcome drinks – this place lifts service levels to a very high standard.  The villa menu is extensive and lovers of Thai food will not be disappointed with either the taste or presentation of the dishes - Western choices are also available. There’s also a good wine list but for some choices you may need to order a day in advance.     

The remoteness of the villa means that those wanting to see the sights of Phuket will have to organise a car and might spend some time in it. On our short visit we didn’t leave the property except to walk along the beach, but for longer stays a rental car is a must. The villa is well equipped for any weather conditions with books, board games and TVs for wet weather, and bikes, kayaks and the wonderful pool for when the sun is shining. Villa Jia’s position, right on the edge of a beautiful deserted beach, definitely sets it above most of the competition.

Highlights

The underground cinema/games room was a fantastic place for after-dinner drinks for the boys; with four different TVs and DVD players around the property there was never any arguing over the remote. Sunsets here are magnificent and the size of the garden and pool really added to the enjoyment of the villa. The food was also very good quality, with all dishes beautifully presented by the very helpful staff.

Surprises

There is some slight structural damage to some of the paving stones around the property but it’s not serious and won’t affect your stay.

We had a great time here, thank you so much and we will be back. There are so many wonderful things to mention but I don't know where to start. The staff are wonderful - the food, the pool, the beach, the weather, the fruits. This is a place where you can actually relax. All we can say is thank you.

We had one wedding and a lovely 3 nights stay at Jia. It was gorgeous. Khun Buss was a wonderful host/ manager. She helped with everything we needed.

Phuket and Villa Jia are heavenly. The warm welcome and gracious service are unmatched. Our needs and wishes are done without having to ask. It's like being a guest in a very generous friend's home.

A stunning location that allows for a complete get away but is still close enough to Phuket for a drive in for a few hours of shopping and lunch. We organised fireworks on our private stretch of beach, were treated to a seafood BBQ in the sala, enjoyed the most delicious Thai cuisine all week (and extra things we asked for!) and the staff were exceptional. Headed by Khun Pui, they could not do enough to help make our stay everything we wanted and more - including the french champagne with our freshly caught yellowfin tuna sashimi! Khun Pui organised the sports fishing boat and even brought along the champagne. Our 3 young kids were extremely well catered for and the many entertainment areas, kayaks, private beachfront and enormous pools made it all the more fun. We will be back and are so looking forward to it.
