Malaiwana - Penthouse (B1) Reviews

We loved the fresh, uplifting ambiance of Malaiwana Penthouse, with its modern design and exceptional location. Its cool understated interior contrasts beautifully with the colourful swirl of the lush hillside, aqua sea, and blazing sunsets. Though the Penthouse is set on just one floor within a three-storey residence, we were surprised at how much space and privacy we enjoyed – we didn’t hear or see another soul beyond our group once we were installed at the Penthouse, and we had unfettered sea views.  

The Penthouse 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 Penthouse 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

Location, location, location. Naithon is such a gorgeous beach, and we thoroughly enjoyed our bird’s eye view of it as we relaxed in celebrity-in-exile fashion on the glamorous pool terrace. Indulging in the delicious Thai meals prepared by our talented chef heightened our fantasy of living a pampered luminary lifestyle!

Surprises

The pool lacks a safety fence, so toddlers will need to be watched closely at all times. The Penthouse is a steep walk uphill from the beach, though the estate buggies can be summoned for a lift at any time.
