Malaiwana - Duplex (C2) Reviews

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.

This is my first travel with my 10 person family. We have checked lots of villa in Phuket and choose Malaiwana finally, we made a good decision. This villa is very nice and we enjoy the sea view and sun every day. At the night drunk with the sky with full stars, so romantic. My family ate very satisfied with villa staff sweet service and loved the delicious food here. We have a perfect vocation in three days but want stay longer. Expecting come to here next time.

We had a fantastic six days here, couldn’t have asked for a better staff. Everyone was friendly and even went above and beyond to make sure we weren’t ripped off by a street vendors. The chef is super knowledgeable and wonderful to interact with, just loved our time here.

We stayed at Malaiwana for 3 weeks and we loved everything about it. The staff were amazing, very kind, helpful and super friendly with the kids. They truly made our experience in Thailand unforgettable. Special thanks to Patty the Villa Manager whose work was impeccable and to our chef whose food we enjoyed every day - it was better than 5 star hotel restaurants. Will recommend this team to family and friends again and again.

What an extraordinary week! We've never had such a holiday before. From the first moment, every need was met. The food at every meal was amazing and "Jeng" our chef, was happy for us all to watch and learn. Our 10 month old baby "Ivy" had the time of her life with so many willing arms and playmates - the staff were all wonderful with her and she loved them. Thank you so much for such a well organized and relaxing holiday. Special thanks "Lilly" for co-coordinating everything.

Excellent customer experience in Malaiwana. The staff has delivered excellent service to us. Mr. Woody is nice and knowledge prepared well for us. The chef, Ms. Kalaya, prepared excellent meal for us. The Thai food she prepared was the best dishes we ate in Phuket. Ms. Bulhan and Bee also delivered excellent service to us. And I appreciate all them efforts and I wish visit Malaiwana again next time!

Thank you so much for warmth hospitality. It was a great pleasure staying here during my holiday. This villa looks very elegant and clear. I enjoys every moment staying here, enjoy the facilities, seeing the view. I would recommend visitors to come here and stay with their family and friends. Totally worth it! This villa and this location is suitable for those who prefer to stay quiet and peaceful. Not quite a place for party people who wants to enjoy might life and entertainment, as it is far from Patong Beach – an hour drive from here to there. Highly recommended! I will be back here again soon. Your sincerely Myo Thiha"
