Vivid tropical skies, fiery sunsets and crystal-blue seas … Naithon Beach is a truly idyllic place, and viewed from our private poolside within Malaiwana Duplex it looks even more spectacular.  We quickly relaxed and eased into the cool, subtle interior of the Duplex, which forms a calming contrast to the colourful tropical surrounds.  Though the Duplex is found within a three-unit, three-storey residence we enjoyed complete peace and privacy here and neither heard nor saw any of our neighbours. The 15-metre pool is gorgeous.

The Duplex is the perfect place for what we call a full-spectrum holiday: enjoying five-star comfort and service while having the simple, natural pleasures of a tropical island at our doorstep.  Having an early-morning swim in the pool, then a decadent breakfast served in style and total privacy on the terrace.  Later on, a stroll along the sand and a snack of grilled chicken on a skewer from a beachside food vendor.  Then back up to the Duplex in time for sunset cocktails and an elaborate dinner of rich Thai curries, spicy whole fish and stir-fried veggies, all planned the day before with our chef.  Finally to bed, where the master suite offers a soft, sumptuous embrace and the promise of more fabulous sea views, just a curtain-peek away upon waking up tomorrow.

Highlights

We nearly wept on leaving this fabulous haven and its awe-inspiring views to return to the real world.  Naithon is one of our favourite Phuket beaches and this, combined with the delicious meals prepared by the chef and the caring service from the staff, left us feeling like well-pampered celebrities throughout our stay.

Surprises

Though the Duplex is enticingly close to Naithon Beach, the route is steep, so if walking is a challenge an estate buggy can be summoned.  With no safety fence around the pool, families with toddlers will need to be vigilant.

We had a wonderful time in the villa. Chef Gear and Joy made sure that kids had food ready for them after their swim or tiring day outside. Our villa manger, Kaew was very helpful with our day to day activities and was available anytime of the day during our stay. We would love to come again. Thank you so much for making this trip so memorable.

Thank you for a wonderful stay. You helped make it so relaxing with 3 babies, cooking food for them and playing with them, and even arranging a wonderful 1st birthday surprise for one of them with cake, balloon and banner. Thank you!!!! The food was amazing and the villa is beautiful. We also loved the buggy rides down!! Thanks!
