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.

Maan Tawan - Orchid Apartment

Maan Tawan - Orchid Apartment

Thailand » Phuket » Bang Tao Beach » Bang Tao

Though it may not have quite as much space as a private stand-alone villa, Maan Tawan Orchid is a great alternative for families or couples seeking a luxurious tropical holiday home. Modern and bright, Orchid is simply an all-round comfortable, inviting and fun place for all ages. Though we place it in the ‘mid-range’ category because it’s an apartment rather than a standalone villa, Maan Tawan’s service, facilities and design are all top-quality. It’s a well managed and cared for property, and we found the staff here to be attentive and helpful. Though services such as a chef and driver are not included, these are easily arranged for an extra charge.

Its location also has a wide appeal. Found at the quieter northern end of Bang Tao, it’s within easy walking distance of a quiet patch of sand for a blissful day of solitude away from the crowds. And with all the facilities of Laguna resort so close by, it’s also a perfect location for those who wish to indulge in some fine food and wine or have an adventure-filled holiday with sports and leisure choices including water sports, golf and ATV riding.

Maan Tawan - Penthouse

Maan Tawan - Penthouse

Thailand » Phuket » Bang Tao Beach » Bang Tao

Sunrise, sunsets, sunrise, sunsets. There aren’t too many holiday homes in Phuket that can lay claim to providing unfettered views of both sunrises and sunsets, but Maan Tawan Penthouse offers just that if you can muster up the energy to climb up to the gorgeous rooftop pool terrace at the designated times of day. Beyond these great views, the penthouse is simply an all-around comfortable, inviting and fun place to stay for all ages. Getting to the penthouse requires climbing three flights of stairs, however, so it could be a challenge for those with limited mobility or babies in tow.

Maan Tawan - Thee Sahm Raan

Maan Tawan - Thee Sahm Raan

Thailand » Phuket » Bang Tao Beach » Bang Tao

Villa Thee Sahm Raan is one of the most balanced, well thought out and best presented villas we have seen in Phuket – it is probably why the owners use it a lot. It is the perfect holiday retreat for families or groups. The villa is clean, safe and enclosed, although the swimming pool is not fenced so non-swimmers would need to be watched. During our inspection we found the kitchen to be fully equipped – although the maid will do the cooking and grocery shopping if you want to escape those chores (provisions are on guest account).

The villa’s location is awesome – great beaches nearby, and convenient for restaurants, services, food and other shopping.

We revisited the villa three years after our first stay and were impressed to find that more facilities (including a computer and printer) and services have been added, thus we’re raising the review score a notch to reflect this. As well, Thee Sahm Raan is showing no signs of age – it is kept in pristine condition throughout.

Villa Maria

Villa Maria

Thailand » Phuket » Nai Harn

‘Summertime, and the living is easy’ crooned Ella Fitzgerald, and at Villa Maria it’s easier still, with no less than three living rooms to spread out in plus a comfy outdoor sitting area to boot. This, along with the villa’s two-bedroom self-contained suite and its sheer size, made us think – slyly – that Maria might be the perfect holiday choice for families who don’t get along! Of course, families who do get along will have an absolute ball here with the big pool-garden-party area and loads of space both indoors and out for playing and relaxing – not to mention the TVs, movies and music for those who love their electronic delights. Thoughtful features for families include trundles under all the single beds, accommodating an extra four young children (and allowing kids to have ‘sleepovers’ in each other’s rooms) and the detachable pool safety fence. With meals mostly taken care of by the full-time cook and a wealth of dining choices to enjoy within minutes, the only pressing issue of the day here was, ‘Beach or pool?’ Being located so close to the beach we could happily do both. (Declaration of bias: Nai Harn is our favourite beach in Phuket, so we are likely to have extra fondness for any villa located in this area!)

Maria is popular, so early booking is essential. When we arrived we caught the staff busy cleaning up the ‘aftermath’ of what looked to have been an exceptionally fun-filled family holiday: overflowing boxes of toys, pool toys and inflatables piled up on the terrace, extra chairs wedged in around the large outdoor dining table... Overall, this is simply a fun and festive villa. Our only regret was not having enough people with us during our visit to take full advantage of all the party zones!

Miskawaan - Villa Acacia

Miskawaan - Villa Acacia

Thailand » Koh Samui » Mae Nam

Although part of a larger estate, Villa Acacia feels agreeably private, with a wonderful beachside location that definitely encourages you to spend most of your stay outdoors. We spent our days either snacking and web-surfing on the poolside terrace (covered, so no need to rush in if it rains), or enjoying a vitamin D boost and the dreamy ocean views from one of the comfy sun loungers on the lawn.

There's no reason not to indulge in Villa Acacia's tasty menu; guilty pleasures can easily be offset with a swim in the sea, a few laps in the pool or a quick session in the gym. In fact, for a relatively modest villa, Acacia offers an impressive combination of active and sofa-bound activities, including movie nights in front of the drop-down projector screen.

Staff were courteous and almost invisible unless called upon to feed and water us (drinks often appearing without a prompt). They efficiently set tables, prepared and served delicious local food and cleared up without fuss. The estate manager greeted us personally, answering every question we fired at her and also offering island insights and recommendations that sadly, we ignored. Not that the information wasn't useful, simply because we quickly decided the best place to be was right there in the villa, immersing ourselves in beachside bliss.

The villa's abundant foliage did encourage a bit of an insect festival when it rained one evening, so we retreated to the safety of our room for a soak in the tub after a hard day of nothing. Villa Acacia is a compact trove of holiday treasures. No wonder the owner keeps a bedroom to himself for regular visits.

Miskawaan - Villa Bougainvillea

Miskawaan - Villa Bougainvillea

Thailand » Koh Samui » Mae Nam

The villas at Miskawaan are positioned perfectly so as not to infringe on each other, allowing privacy in a sheltered beachfront world. The days passed gently, time between meals happily filled with regular dips in the pool interspersed with naps and a relaxing read on the daybed in the sala. For sun soaking sessions we headed to the beach, and staff obliged by moving the sun loungers down onto the sand for us. The water here is a balmy 28 degrees Celsius year round and deep enough for a long swim (during the monsoon in November the tides are higher, so the beach gets quite narrow). We enjoyed watching a Hobiecat with its rainbow sail pass up and down and a kite-surfer making the most of the breeze, and we gazed enviously at a super-yacht moored in the distance.  

The villa manager and her team were friendly and amenable throughout, regularly appearing from nowhere to offer drinks and snacks and efficiently setting tables and serving our pre-ordered meals. Alfresco breakfast was well prepared and varied, with special touches such as the homemade jams – be sure to try the unusual but delicious coconut jam. The estate manager was also there to welcome us when we arrived and not only answered our questions but also offered useful tips and insights about things to do in the area.

In the end though, we resisted the temptation to explore the island in favour of relaxing and enjoying the villa to the full: we saw little reason to go out when we had everything right on our doorstep. We did manage to explore the menu in depth though, and offset our guilt with regular swims and walks along the beach. Luckily our stay included a Thursday night, so we were able to enjoy an evening at the nearby festive walking street market. On our return, the room has been turned down, the air-conditioning set at just the right temperature, and flowers placed on our pillows.

Although Villa Bougainvillea lacks some of the high-end facilities (such as a private gym or cinema room) available at more opulent private residences, we were quite content to enjoy the various holiday pleasures on offer – particularly the villa’s beachside setting.

The villas at Miskawaan are positioned perfectly so as not to infringe on each other, allowing privacy in a sheltered beachfront world. The days passed gently, time between meals happily filled with regular dips in the pool interspersed with naps, reading and ‘Googling’ on the beachside terrace – just watch out for that laptop tan on the thighs!
