Hai Leng's postcard-perfect tropical panorama at the fringe of Ao Yon bay is about as good as a holiday escape gets. We loved watching the boats coming and going from our lavish perch on the marble terrace, with the most pressing decision we faced being whether to take another dip in the fantastic infinity pool, venture out for a stroll along the sands, or play pétanque. Actually, we have no idea how to play pétanque but the pitch is right there on the beachfront should we have wanted to give it a try! The cooler morning hours were especially delightful, watching the bay come to life while sipping our freshly-brewed coffee presented by the friendly, efficient maids who serve breakfast daily. We also indulged in an excellent evening meal on the terrace, a fantastic Thai seafood spread prepared by the skilled chef who may be brought in to cook additional meals for an extra charge. Hai Leng is where the owners of the three Moon Cove Villas stay when they are in Phuket, and indeed they were here when we came for a visit. Meal service was flawless and well presented. Though we were happy to remain lazily sequestered in the villa, it is worth venturing out for at least one afternoon to drive the scenic roads around the cape, with plenty of places to stop along the way to take in the views or enjoy a cool drink in a shady hut. Since our visit, an English-speaking villa manager has been hired, who helps communicate with staff, organise excursions, etc, in the owners’ abscense.

Highlights

The villa's beachfront setting on the idyllic Ao Yon Bay is simply heavenly. And so are the sunrise views. We also loved the scents and sight of all the exotic flora and fauna in the spacious shared garden that stretches across the front of the estate.

Surprises

The pool has no enclosure or shallow section and the terrace can be slippery when wet so toddlers, especially, will need to be watched closely.
