Malaiwana - Duplex (C3) 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.

The Elias family had a wonderful holiday - thanks to the attentive and lovely service from Ms Wawa and her team. The food was first class and nothing was too much bother. The villa itself was so comfortable that it would be hard not to enjoy oneself. Our only comment is we would have liked at least two extra sun lounges by the pool and a T.V. in the living room. Apart from that, you can be proud of your property, we will tell all our friends and we will be back. Thank you again. Thank you also to Ms Maya who met us at the airport and dealt with our booking so efficiently.
