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.

Motsamot

Motsamot

Thailand » Koh Samui » Choeng Mon

Our initial concern at the location soon gave way to satisfied sighs when we settled into Motsamot's appealing, natural surroundings. The serene forested setting and abundance of space more than compensated for the lack of beach or ocean views, and with 20m of cool blue pool to swim and splash around in we never felt an overpowering urge to get sand between our toes.

The villa's intriguing design touches and framed photographs of Asia not only make it feel homely, but also had us pointing out details to each other; playing 'guess the country of origin' as we admired the owner's well-travelled taste. It's hard to confine yourself to one spot at Motsamot and we definitely wished we'd come as a group to make the most of all the different lounging, dining and bathing options. The staff happily but unobtrusively followed us around, bringing us cool drinks as we switched from pool to sala to lounge and finally to the terrace. They even moved the furniture outside for us when we decided the latter was the best place to relax with a book. Having a rental car meant both Choeng Mon and Chaweng were an easy hop for dinner by the sea. During the day we survived on the filling breakfast (included) and then snacks we bought at the local minimart. Not a choice for seasoned beach freaks perhaps, but certainly a very comfortable and original villa if, like us, you like a bit of privacy, plus the freedom to come and go with ease.

Panorama Summit

Panorama Summit

Thailand » Koh Samui » Choeng Mon

A line from The Carpenters’ song: “I’m on the top of the world, looking down on creation” pops into my mind as I lie on a sun lounger by the pool at Panorama Summit. Yet although we’re almost in the clouds, it’s only a short (but admittedly steep) drive to the village and pristine beach below. Nothing obscures the view here – even the hedges of white bougainvillea are perfectly trimmed to knee-height so you look over the pretty blossoms, past the coconut plantations, to the glistening temples and beyond to the sailboats in the bay.

And the view doesn’t fade with the sunset. At night you can see the village lights, a green glow from the squid fishing boats, fireworks from the beach resorts and, if you’re as lucky as we were, spectacular flashes of ‘dry lightning’. One of our favourite places to enjoy the view was from the front edge of the infinity pool, perhaps not ideal for those who suffer from vertigo though.

When we felt the need to pay for our over-indulgence at one of the many excellent local seafood restaurants, a friendly game of tennis (racket and ball hire available at the office) at the estate’s shared court, or a walk down to the beach – and back – did the trick.

We enjoyed delicious continental breakfasts prepared by the resident housekeeper, but if you want a cooked breakfast (or a private chef to prepare any other meal), this can easily be arranged for a reasonable fee plus provisions charged at cost plus 15%. Khun Pee, the villa manager, will gladly help you arrange a chef and can take care of many other concierge services too, be it an in-house massage or a boat trip to one of Samui’s outlying islands.

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.

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.

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.
