Malaiwana - Duplex (B3) Reviews

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.

I and my friends stayed at Malaiwana this time. Very happy. The atmosphere here is very good. Good care of the staff. The first day, there were two children who did not like curry. On the second day, the staff provided the pork bone with corn soup to them instead. They really care. Communication was not always smooth, but the staff still intended to find a translation app and speak to us via messages. It made us feel more comfortable. In the future, I will introduce other friends who want to visit Thailand to stay here. Smiles sent to Kiwi and her team! See you! Thank you! And Love you!

1 time with the most relaxing rest. 1 Accommodation that faces the vast ocean. We sleep, sit and experience here for a long time. The nature that has been found the building that was once seen was only this. The sun and light winds with the kindest people can be seen. When time gradually slowly passing through, holidays also the same.

Every area in this room is decorated in a modern style. Staying here was very impressive and exciting. The pool is great, with small lights at night. Swimming in the pool plus ordering wine to drink at the same time is the dream on a hot day. The room facing the sea, beautiful scenery. The interior of the room is well maintained in small details. The bed was comfortable. Food great taste. The villa attendant was very attentive. Every corner in the room is suitable for taking pictures. Thank you for the warm welcome and friendly care.

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.
