Villas in Thailand

Without doubt, Thailand is one of the world’s most enchanting holiday destinations, marked by the fact that the same visitors grace it over and over again. The reason? Soft white palm-scattered beaches lapped by a warm turquoise sea; a clear blue ocean home to colourful coral reefs and a vivacity of mesmerising marine life; lush northern hills and mountains ripe for exploring outdoors; fabulous temples both old and new; some of Asia’s most exuberant festivals; and of course, the country’s fresh-as-you-like feisty cuisine. Boasting something for everyone, Thailand offers bags of appeal.

It’s of little surprise that most of Thailand’s villas are concentrated in the sunny wave-lapped isles of Phuket and Koh Samui. Phuket rose meteorically to fame some years back and now has an international airport, restaurants run by celebrity chefs, world-class golf courses and a cosmopolitan grandeur that have made it a synonym for The Tropical Good Life around the planet. Samui is subtler in its endeavours but its natural topography and raw beauty make it an unforgettable holiday isle. Cultural Chiang Mai, in the north, is completely different yet again; rugged hills carpeted in lush jungle beg you to seek out its treasures on foot, or better still, atop an elephant’s back.

Thailand's variable geography is mirrored by its climate, which is very much affected by the monsoons. Both Phuket and Samui are generally rain-free from late December to April whilst the rainy season is June through November. The cool season (November – February) is one of the best times to visit. March to May sees the temperature reach the mid-30s.

Mullion Cove

Mullion Cove

Thailand » Koh Samui » Bophut

We found Mullion Cove a refreshing change from many of the villas of this grade we've inspected on Koh Samui, some of which feel a little impersonal or built-to-rent. The cool white decor and homely furnishings here reminded us of a more traditional European style, but with a light, bright and energetic feel that suits the tropics. Because the garden is constantly in the sun, the glass-fronted living room and the bedrooms do get rather warm, but the air conditioning and closed bedroom curtains cooled things down and once we acclimatized, it was just as pleasant to stay outside from breakfast until sunset, switching between the pool, sun beds and sala. Although the master suite in the main pavilion is an extravagant affair, we chose the front bedroom pavilion as it was closer to the trees with its own private terrace. Waking up to the sound of the birds and flinging open the curtains to soak in the panoramic sea views more than made up for any lack of beach.

Mullion Cove lets you mix your holiday pleasures with ease. If you tire of the sun you can retreat to the lounge to catch up on films and books, constantly within reach of a tasty snack or cold drink. There's even an intercom in the kitchen to call the maid if she's not within sight and she's happy to help prepare meals beyond the included breakfast if you choose not to hire a chef. Bo Phut is perhaps Samui's least spoilt beachside village, so trips down the hill are a treat, especially to eat out and enjoy the beachside ambience. It's an easy drive, but you have to be careful at night because there are few lights on the road that leads to the villa. If you're sharing with family and friends, you probably won't venture out much as Mullion Cove is a fabulous place to relax and escape from the world.

Paresa Grand Villa 5

Paresa Grand Villa 5

Thailand » Phuket » Kamala

Water, water everywhere! From the expansive sea views to the three swimming pools to the fabulous baths, there's no escaping from aquatic delights at Paresa Grand Villa 5. Soothed by its cool earthy tones, gorgeous Southern Thai design and seamless outdoor and indoor spaces, our worries simply floated away in a sea of serenity. We loved the openness of all the rooms -- there's nothing quite as refreshing as peeling aside an entire wall to greet the morning's tropical breezes. Equally as nice, as evening arrived, was the ease in which the bedrooms could be made cosy by drawing the curtains and switching on the romantic lighting, while the air conditioning cooled down hot bodies after a day in the sun. Paresa's picturesque location and impressive facilities are ideal for a wedding or other celebration, with a full contingent of resort services and staff on hand to help. As a resort-style villa, Paresa does not have the live-in staff that regular villa guests may anticipate but a butler is easily reached by phone. We felt that the subtlety of the interior design made the villa a bit generic looking; some splashes of colour would have added flavour. However, what the villa lacks in character, is made up for by the Paresa Resort staff's smooth professionalism and the good range of activities on offer such as cooking classes, yacht trips, spa sessions or market excursions (additional charges apply). Paresa's many staircases will make it difficult for those with limited mobility and a watchful eye on young children will be needed with the open pools and lack of barriers on some steep areas.

Patong Hill Villa (4BR)

Patong Hill Villa (4BR)

Thailand » Phuket » Patong

In our several journeys up and down Phuket’s busy west coast, we’ve whizzed past the entrance to the narrow, lush lane of Patong Hill Estate many times and always wondered what it looked like inside. The estate is a property pioneer of sorts, being what we understand is the first luxury villa estate in Phuket, built in the early 1990s at the dawn of the island’s tourism boom. This four-bedroom Patong Hill Villa and its sister five-bedroom villa next door were built more recently (2004) at the top of the estate. Though it lacks the flashiness of some of the newer Phuket villas, it’s a lovely, welcoming place with an easy charm that we felt at home in immediately. Patong Hill delivers the full Phuket Island experience: impressive sea views, a jungle setting with whirring cicadas and birdsong, subtle touches of luxury and loads of comfort. The service here is friendly and casual, and there’s a lack of formality that can be a welcome thing if you just want things taken care of with little fuss. If you’re seeking turn-down service and a line of crisply-dressed staff greeting you with garlands on arrival you’ll need to go elsewhere. The villa’s serene setting was marred somewhat on first impression as we arrived to the sound of a blaring TV, which wasn’t turned off till we asked. Once the peace was restored, however, we happily settled in to a routine of watching clouds drift by while sipping cool drinks on the terrace and languid sunbathing sessions by the pool. Though the villa provides a tranquil escape, we think it’s also an ideal launching point for a more action-packed holiday with the bright lights of Patong so close by. Patong is teeming with restaurants to explore, too, though you’d be hard-pressed to find a Thai meal as good as those prepared by the villa cook. Dining in-villa also offers better value since, typically for any tourist-oriented place, there can be some hair-raising prices at some of the better-known eateries in Patong.

Villa Pra-Nang

Villa Pra-Nang

Thailand » Phuket » Patong

With its spectacular views and spacious though intimate atmosphere we found Pra-Nang to be a very relaxing villa, ideal for families, groups of friends and couples who wish to be close to the action of Patong Bay but not right in the thick of it. The lack of garden however (the villa has only a stepped concrete terrace brimming with colourful potted plants) makes it less suitable for energetic younger children or toddlers who would need a lot of supervision. The bedrooms are all similar in décor, comfort and size which will save any squabbling about who sleeps where. Benefitting from the villa’s broad position on the headland, each room has been built on the same level to take advantage of the panoramic views. We felt that this also makes the villa more sociable as all rooms opens onto the wide pool terrace. The swimming pool is not so big, however there is a separate elevated jacuzzi pool that makes up for it. The lounge offers a comfortable place to appreciate the views, or a cosy atmosphere for watching a movie. We appreciated the gym’s private location on the ground floor, especially as kids noisily playing pool or table tennis are less likely to be a disturbance. The villa has WiFi internet access and a computer with printer/scanner/fax.

The cook prepares simple meals according to a menu (predominantly Thai food except for a couple of sandwich options) however BBQs, western meals and other preferences (special diets) can be catered for on request. We thought that the complimentary case of Singha Beer (and soft drinks) on arrival was a nice touch. While the villa staff speak only basic English, the manager is happy to assist with everything from travel arrangements (complimentary airport transfers) to restaurant reservations.

Villa Riva

Villa Riva

Thailand » Koh Samui » Bang Por-Nathon

Villa Riva’s sprawling Thai-style buildings with red-tiled roofs, gave us the initial impression of entering a boutique hotel rather than a private residence. But clever design and furnishings turns what could have been an imposing structure into an intimate luxury villa.

With bedrooms and living areas housed in separate buildings, peace and quiet is easy to come by. On the other hand, Riva's excellent facilities make it a great villa for socialising. We spent our afternoon sunning ourselves on the pool deck, attempting to swim the full 32-metre-length of the pool, and exploring the beach and rock pools, before enjoying sundowners as we watched fishing boats coming and going and the sun sinking into the bay.

A seafood dinner was enjoyed alfresco in the barbecue sala alongside the pool. The villa’s elevated position on the headland means it catches the breeze perfectly, but on a still night, the sala has a ceiling fan to cool. And of course, you can always refresh with a moonlit dip in the pool that appears as an extension of the sea.

Music piped through indoor and outdoor speakers added to the mood (there’s an extensive selection of music with controls throughout the clubhouse and in the sala). Ending the evening on a high note, we retreated to the home cinema, reclined our seats to near horizontal and, at the touch of the iPad control, settled in with popcorn and drinks for a few hours of entertainment. After a good night’s rest in fluffy white bedding, there was nothing nicer than waking to the sounds of the birds  – knowing that we didn’t have to get up just yet, but could indulgently savour the view from the comfort of our bed. Once we did manage to get up and about, the smell of breakfast on the go and coffee brewing drew us to the dining room where we could continue to enjoy the ocean views.

Chom Tawan - Villa Samorna

Chom Tawan - Villa Samorna

Thailand » Phuket » Bang Tao Beach

Villa Samorna is a very-well-cared-for and welcoming oasis.  Although the villa is on an estate, its position along the banks of a stream gives it a truly private and tranquil feel.  We enjoyed some lazy hours sipping drinks in the shade by the big pool, which – along with the garden – is a delight for kids.  During our brief visit we didn’t dine in, but we could have asked the villa’s long-time housekeeper Khun Aon to cook for us had we wished (extra charge applies).  We found her to be helpful and friendly and, having assisted the villa owners and many guests over the years, a fount of knowledge on the area – such as the best places to eat locally.    

We prefer being away from busy areas on holiday and in this regard Villa Samorna was the perfect choice, with the estate set along a quiet section of the beach that so far has seen little development.  Aside from a few people out on a stroll with their dogs, we didn’t come across any commercial activity at the beach in this area beyond the few simple restaurants nearby.  It’s isolated enough to enjoy your own private sunset views on the sand, and yet the five-star spas and restaurants of Laguna and vicinity are an easy five-minute drive away.  We had our own transport, which we’d recommend for guests staying here given Samorna’s location, though Khun Aom can easily arrange taxi services, too.

Samsara Estate - Villa Benyasiri

Samsara Estate - Villa Benyasiri

Thailand » Phuket » Kamala

The view at Villa Benyasiri is to die for: a truly spectacular panorama. The villa is perfect for those who enjoy a private, luxury experience with little desire to leave the amazing views that the villa offers. Groups would also enjoy this villa for a party or reunion, but remember that two of the five bedrooms are twin-share and more oriented to families holidaying with children.

A definite party pad, Villa Benyasiri offers Vogue-style views, modern living and contemporary spaces. The owners, who frequently holiday here, have two energetic kids, but if you are travelling with young children who need lots of space, Villa Benyasiri may be a little constraining; families with older children looking for ‘action’ may prefer a less secluded location although Patong is really not far away.
