Malaiwana - Duplex (B3) Reviews


Our Review

Overall Rating:
8.3
Reviewed:
Vivid tropical skies, fiery sunsets and crystal-blue seas … Nai Thon 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.  Nai Thon 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 Nai Thon 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.

Everything about this villa and team is superb! All the rooms are clean and well ventilated. The master bedroom is large and the view is just perfect. The pool is a decent size and we all spent a long time relaxing on the patio. We must mention what an asset the team is to this villa. Wawa and her team were the most helpful and friendly bunch. Nothing was too much trouble and they got on wonderfully with our two kids. Wawa helped us save a lot of time and effort by helping find the medication needed for my daughter and my dad. We really had spent the most wonderful and relaxing week here in Phuket. Oh, and the chef's cooking is so delicious. She was able to cook authentic yet catering to our family, most of whom could not eat spicy. We all loved the food and actually ate all our dinners in the villa! We can’t wait to be back! Thanks to everyone who made this wonderful holiday possible. Georgia

We had a fantastic 4 day vacation with world class service, delicious food and memorable sunsets. The professional Elite Havens team provide us super service and the in-villa manager Patty is friendly and intelligent. She is just like captain Marvel and can achieve any wish you require. The chef provides us Thai cooking and can adjust the menu based on our special taste. The villa provides us a grand, luxurious, high tech holiday home. The endless swimming pool give our daughter and families a lot of fun. The sunset of Naiton Beach is amazing.

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 a tiring day outside. Our villa manger, Kaew was very helpful with our day to day activities and was available anytime of the day. We would love to come again. Thank you so much for making this trip so memorable.

It was really a great awesome experience staying at Malaiwana for our group. Villa Manager Khun Noy is especially helpful, attentive and detailed in making arrangements to take care of our group at one villa. I will strongly recommend to my friends network Malaiwana and also the service of Elite Havens.

Thank you for Khun, Sunny, Khun and Gibzy for beyond awesome hospitality. Truly the land of smiles. I enjoyed myself very much. Sunny was great help to me after finding out I got stung by a sea urchin. She went out of her way to help buy items that removed that urchin spines. Thank you so much.
