Sunrise, sunsets, sunrise, sunsets. There aren’t too many holiday homes in Phuket that can lay claim to providing unfettered views of both sunrises and sunsets, but Maan Tawan Penthouse offers just that if you can muster up the energy to climb up to the gorgeous rooftop pool terrace at the designated times of day. Beyond these great views, the penthouse is simply an all-around comfortable, inviting and fun place to stay for all ages. Getting to the penthouse requires climbing three flights of stairs, however, so it could be a challenge for those with limited mobility or babies in tow. Though we place it in the ‘mid-range’ category because it’s an apartment rather than a standalone villa, Maan Tawan’s service, facilities and design are all top-quality. It’s a well managed and cared for property, and we found the staff here to be attentive and helpful. Though services such as a chef and driver are not included, these are easily arranged for an extra charge.

Its location also has a wide appeal. Found at the quieter northern end of Bang Tao, it’s within easy walking distance of a quiet patch of sand for a blissful day of solitude away from the crowds. And with all the facilities of Laguna resort so close by, it’s also a perfect location for those who wish to indulge in some fine food and wine or have an adventure-filled holiday with sports and leisure choices including water sports, golf and ATV riding.

Highlights

Picture-perfect views from the rooftop pool and the location are the main attractions here. The kitchen is spacious, modern and well designed for guests who wish to self-cater.

Surprises

The pool terrace is a fantastic place to chill out, but with no roof cover or umbrellas its exposed terracing can get quite hot in the daytime. The pool is also within sight of the penthouse pools of neighbouring apartments in the estate (thus we recommend striking skinny dipping off the itinerary!). The beach is practically a stone’s throw away, but getting to it requires a bit of an extra walk around some fenced-off private property.
