Bang Tao villas in Phuket, Thailand

A holiday in Bang Tao offers seclusion and convenience, a combination often difficult to find. Bang Tao Beach is a six-kilometre sandy stretch that remains refreshingly authentic. The northern end near Layan Beach is relatively untouched, with Dream Beach Club adding a dash of glitz to the scene. The centre is dominated by the Laguna Phuket resort complex, a secure and upscale resort which is home to award-winning hotels such as Dusit Laguna Phuket and The Banyan Tree, along with a handful of luxury villas that remain in high demand. Within the complex, you will find Laguna Phuket Golf Course, several world-renowned spas, and more than 30 restaurants and bars at the six resorts, all within walking distance or a shuttle ride away.

The resort also has a marketplace where conveniences such as money changing facilities, medical clinics, pharmacies, massage centres and banks can be accessed. Stop for a bite at one of the western delicatessens before you head to the many shops where you can pick up a souvenir or two. The complimentary shuttle bus drops guests off at the Laguna Phuket entrance, where affordable foot spas and even more restaurants, some with live music, can be enjoyed. Things to do in Bang Tao are aplenty including the treasures of Boat Avenue, popular on the island for its shopping centre and the fabulous, high-end Villa Market grocery store where you can stock up if you plan to cook. New to the area, Porto de Phuket is a glamorous shopping centre where locals and tourists flock, offering a range of restaurants, shops and another high-end grocery store.

Those seeking nightlife excitement can head off towards Patong, a 20-minute (25km) drive south. Besides all the action at the bars and the clubs, Patong also has shopping opportunities at Jungceylon shopping mall and ‘knock-off’ goods markets. To the north of Bang Tao, Layan Beach is a secret well kept by Phuket’s local expat community. Coconuts languish in the sand, cleansed by the crystal clear waters. The beachfront is public but usually deserted, parking is available and, during the high-season, food and drink pedalled by vendors and beach massages are aplenty. Phuket’s international airport lies 30km to the north.

Chom Tawan - Villa Samorna

Chom Tawan - Villa Samorna

Thailand » Phuket » Bang Tao Beach » Bang Tao

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.
