From its gorgeous sea-view setting in Patong’s hills, we found Villa Phala to be the perfect place to enjoy opulent surrounds and some good old-fashioned pampering, yet not be completely withdrawn from the world. ‘Carefree’ best describes the experience here, with a mind-boggling range of facilities, services and attractions easily available and close at hand.

Every day was different. One day we retreated completely and lounged by the pool, ordering our meals from the estate’s à la carte menu and catching up on some reading while stretched out on the wooden deck chairs. The next day we wandered downhill into central Patong and plunged into its busy hawker-lined streets and shopping arcades, and when the heat and crowds got to be too much, we beat a hasty retreat to the villa.

We were very impressed with the level of care taken in both the villa’s design and upkeep. L’Orchidée clearly runs a tight ship, with a large team of staff and contractors providing service for 25 villas, keeping the villa and the entire estate neat, tidy, and looking brand new even though it was built in 2006. Service is efficient and professional; all of our requests were understood and taken care of.

In all, we found Villa Phala to be an ideal holiday home, offering ample opportunity for both exploration and utter relaxation for people of all ages. Kids especially will delight in having a choice to play in the villa’s private pool or hang out with other children in the shared pool and shallow children’s pool at the club house, just a few minutes’ walk away.

Highlights

The stunning sea views are about as good as it gets and the villa’s design takes full advantage of the view wherever possible, especially at the spacious pool area, where the evening sky’s hues can be enjoyed to the full. Night-time views are equally as impressive, with Patong’s city lights stretching across the valley below. The private lift is a welcome feature for those who have trouble with stairs.

Surprises

Although the bedroom configuration at this villa is ideal for extended families, groups of adults may have to draw straws for the two master suites, which have the coveted sea views. The two remaining bedrooms feature ensuite bathrooms but they are positioned at the back, facing the hillside and the single bunk room is really only suitable for children.
