Top 8 Luxury Villas & Vacation Rentals in Phuket

by noreply@blogger.com (Erica ) @ The Girl with the Muji Hat

Phuket is such an amazing place for foreign and local tourists. It is a favorite place because of its pristine beaches and its accessibility to a cluster of islands. The beach in Phuket has different vibe with rock formations and fine white sand. People come here for marine activities as well as parties! 


Phuket is also known as a luzurious destination. If you have been to Maldives and want a different island destination, why not try Phuket?


Here are the top eight Luxury Villas and Vacation rentals we collated for you:


8 Villa Amarapura


Experience famously beautiful Phuket in a brand-new way at Villa Amarapura. This newly built vacation rental is a dreamy private retreat on the shores of the Andaman Sea in the exclusive Cape Yamu community. Let the property’s staff see to the details as you and up to fourteen friends or family members indulge in the modern luxury of this stunning seven-bedroom estate.

Whether you’re entertaining or simply relaxing, this villa makes it all a breeze. Your stay at Villa Amarapura includes the services of a chef, housekeeper and property manager. Spend your holiday lounging by one of the two infinity pools, sipping refreshments from the wet bar, testing your skill on the putting green, basketball court or badminton court or exploring the bay in kayaks and paddleboards. End the day on a high note with dinner from the barbecue at the al-fresco dining pavilion, followed by stargazing from the hot tub, a rack or two on the pool table in the games room or a movie in the home theater.

In keeping with the home’s oceanfront location, the interiors of Villa Amarapura are refined yet welcoming, open yet luxurious. Soaring paneled ceilings and a globe chandelier draw the eye up in the great room, while a slide-away glass wall lets in both sea views and warm breezes. Clean-lined sofas and chairs make for inviting sitting and dining areas, and there’s also a more casual dining table and breakfast bar in the adjoining fully equipped kitchen.

There are six bedrooms in the main house at Villa Amarapura and one in a separate guest house; all have en-suite bathrooms and great views. The main house has two bedrooms with a super king bed and four bedrooms with king beds, and the guest house, which could be set aside as a honeymoon suite, has a king bed. Features like lounge areas in several bedrooms and stand-alone bathtubs encourage lingering in the suites.

From the villa’s waterfront location on Cape Yamu, it’s just steps to the sand and a short drive to local attractions like the Royal Phuket Marina, Laguna Golf and the Big Buddha. Plan on a 17-mile drive from the property to Phuket International Airport, or ask to arrange an airport transfer to round out your stay.

7 Oasis Spring


Discover an oceanfront gem tucked between the bays of Kamala and Patong at Oasis Spring. This luxury Phuket vacation rental is set on the west coast, with panoramic views over the Andaman Sea—and resort-worthy living areas from which to enjoy them. Reserve the villa for a sun-kissed holiday with extended family, a relaxed getaway with friends or even a special celebration, like a milestone birthday or intimate destination wedding.

Revel in the year-round tropical temperatures from outdoor living areas with an infinity pool, rows of loungers in the sun and shaded al-fresco living and dining pavilions. Inside the villa, amenities range from a private fitness center with weight-training equipment and space for yoga to a bar, library and ping-pong and pool tables.

The main living areas at Oasis Spring run parallel to the pool, showcasing the ocean views. Glass walls on two sides, including sliding doors that open to the terrace, flood the open-plan great room with light, while wood floors add warmth to the living and dining areas. Water features give the main-floor courtyard a calming ambience, and the fully equipped kitchen is well appointed with a breakfast bar, wine fridge and state-of-the-art appliances.

Each of the property’s bedrooms is an oasis in itself with an en-suite bathroom, lounge or living area, private balcony and ocean views. There are six bedrooms with king beds, including a master suite worthy of a honeymoon, and one bedroom with two twin beds.

Oasis Spring is within walking distance of Kamala Beach, where you’ll find a curve of relatively calm beach as well as the popular FantaSea Thai cultural theme park. It’s also less than 10 miles from the villa to the beaches at Hua and Surin, a spa and golf club, and local shopping, dining and nightlife.

6 Fah Sai at Samsara


Featured in The Great Homes of the World section of The New York Times, Villa Fah Sai (meaning “majestic retreat overlooking a tranquil sea”) is an ocean-front home that evokes an idyllic balance between the contemporary grandeur of Frank Lloyd Wright (the famous American architect) and Thai-Japanese timelessness. The front entrance welcomes you into a stretched living room with a view that seduces the eye over an onyx-tiled reflecting pond onto a picturesque panoramic view of the Andaman Sea and Patong Bay.

The large double doors of the first level open onto an elegant veranda that welcomes you to a floor that exudes an airy, modern atmosphere with a junior master suite and three additional en-suite bedrooms, one of which may be converted into a spa. The floor also has a games room, fully equipped with a games console, card table and treadmill. Each of these rooms opens onto an expansive travertine pool deck, the perfect place to congregate for sunset cocktails or midnight dips in the fresh water pool. There’s also an indoor jetted tub so you can treat yourself to a luxurious soak without having to leave the comfort of the villa.

Walking through the living room, you will pass a dining room that comfortably accommodates a dinner party of 10 and enter into a spacious contemporary kitchen equipped with restaurant quality appliances and a breakfast nook. The gourmet kitchen opens out onto a large terrace, ideal for casual dining and entertainment, and offers an unbelievable unobstructed 180º view of Patong Bay, with its majestic mountains and charming coastline.

The master suite is located off the living room and also incorporates the stunning ocean vista. It provides you with 1500 square feet of luxurious privacy, complete with modern western comforts, including a spacious walk-in closet, private retreat and office. There are four additional en-suite bedrooms all with air conditioning and pristine ocean vistas. There’s no better sight when you wake up in the morning.

There are beaches to the north and south of Fah Sai at Samsara within a 10-20 minute stroll. Within a 10 minute drive of this incredible vacation home you’ll find Kamala Town, an array of restaurants, as well as a gym and grocery store. Included in the cost are round-trip airport transfers if you don’t plan on renting your own vehicle during your stay.


5 Iniala Collector’s Villa 


A living art installation for fans of fantasy and romance awaits at Iniala Collector’s Villa. A team of leading designers have created a series of whimsical spaces housed in a contemporary twist on a classic Thai house. Situated on the golden sands of Natai Beach near Phuket, with wonderful sunset views over the Andaman Sea, from golden teak to beautiful tiling, this enticing creation represents a sublime deviation from the normal.

The masterful design and decor will leave you speechless. The villa evokes the feeling of being on the set of a palace set in a futuristic sci-fi film. The ceramic temple of Wat Arun inspires the sea blue living room, its walls encrusted with 3,000 ceramic plates. The spectacular cinema is filled with fabulous furry green Cipria sofas and complete with surround sound and a wonderful 160-inch screen. The Pearl Spa is covered in mother of pearl, with gold and bronze furniture creating a shimmering sanctuary. The formal dining room sits cool and encased in glass, hovering over the edge of the infinity swimming pool.

This villa provides a dedicated staff with a driver, butler, chef, spa therapist and housekeeper. Allow Iniala Collector Villa’s ace chef to take you on a journey of culinary wonder, preparing meals to your tastes. Enjoy a massage that will take you deep into a Zen-like state. Get the holiday you deserve with Luxury Retreats!

The bedrooms within the Iniala Collector’s Villa are each as individual as their designers. Jaime Hayon from Spain has created a bright beach suite, with imaginative details such as the ‘clown’ door. From Ireland’s Joseph Walsh, a symphony of ash wood and stone showcase a bed frame of layered, arched woods akin to a princess’ sleeping chamber. Finally, the sensual boudoir from New Zealand’s Mark Brazier-Jones provides an interior awash with silks, crystal and metal.

Iniala Collector’s Villa is a private vacation rental leaving little to be desired. Far from the general hubs of Phuket, this oceanfront villa permits rejuvenation in a setting that stimulates all five of your known senses. You will nonetheless be within easy driving distance of a number of attractions and activities including the Wat Chalong Temple, Phuket Town and golf at Blue Canyon. Bring the family or organize a wedding… or have it all to yourself for a decadent honeymoon. Have your vacation, your way!

4 Cliff Top Residence


This spectacular villa on the east coast of Phuket is within walking distance of the breathtaking Ao Yon Beach. Enjoying panoramic ocean views of Ao Yon Bay from its ample alfresco living areas and exquisite interiors, the six-bedroom villa is ideal for families, large groups of friends, and destination wedding guests seeking an enchanting experience of one of the most beautiful coastlines in Thailand and Southeast Asia. Complimentary services including a private chef, private car, and daily breakfast, as well as outstanding home entertainment features, ensure utter comfort during your stay.

The villa has expansive outdoor living areas on all three levels, including private balconies outside all of the bedroom suites and a resort-style pool terrace on the main level. Savor luxurious days in the Pacific sun, sipping cool drinks on elegant loungers and sunbeds, plunging into the delicious waters of the swimming pool, and relishing vistas of the turquoise bay and verdant coast. Returning from the beach in the afternoon, gather for a lunch of delicious Thai cuisine at the stunning alfresco table.

Large glass walls open from the terrace and balconies to the interior living areas, allowing the entire home to breathe the ocean air. Enjoy evenings together in the beautiful living room, sipping aperitifs on the immense sectional sofa as your private chef prepares a delectable feast. Select a fine bottle from the wine fridge and join each other at the lovely dining table. In the morning, refresh yourself in the fitness room and steam room, before relishing a complimentary breakfast while gazing at the scintillating sea.

Each of the six spectacular king bedroom suites could be a luxury apartment in its own right. All feature lounge areas, office desks, ensuite bathrooms with stand-alone shower and tub, and furnished outdoor living areas. The master suite includes a steam room and ocean-view tub.

Cliff Top Residence offers an ideal balance of peaceful seclusion and total convenience. In the villa's private car, you're an easy drive from Kata Beach, the town of Phuket, Chalong Temple, and numerous other attractions, while Ao Yon Beach is a short walk away. At extra cost, yacht and helicopter rental as well as numerous outstanding adventures are at your disposal.

3 Ani Villas Thailand


A veritable Thai hamlet, this stunning ten bedroom beachfront estate offers a magical Southeast Asian experience. Its location on the serene island of Koh Yao Noi affords otherworldly views of the dramatic limestone karst formations of Phang Nga Bay. The estate’s remarkable design from Naga Concepts was inspired by the temples of Northern Thailand. Get the sublime rest and rejuvenation you deserve with Luxury Retreats!

Perfect for weddings, private events and corporate retreats, the facilities and amenities include a one hundred foot oceanfront swimming pool, a water slide and children’s pool, a therapist-staffed spa and fitness center, watersports equipment, a yoga pavilion, multiple dining venues and a cooking class facility. In addition to the boutique perks of the estate itself, a wide range of activities embracing the local flair are offered – cave kayaking, mountain biking, rock climbing and cooking classes with your personal chef.

If the word ‘Zen’ could be brought to life it would be in exactly these surroundings. Sacred pergolas, flawless design and mythic rock formations across the sea make Ani Villas Thailand a true embodiment of balance and harmony with one’s natural surroundings. Water features and dramatic columns offer a glimpse of the mastery required in equalizing the forces of yin and yang. And the wet bar will be a delight for the consummate entertainer!

Ten gorgeous bedrooms accommodate up to twenty guests at Ani Villas Thailand. All of the bedrooms feature king sized beds and en-suite bathrooms. The bedrooms have been spread over five guests houses, which is great for groups seeking oscillations of social time and privacy. The guest house with four bedrooms offers a private courtyard pool.

Guests of Ani Villas Thailand are transferred to the property from either the Phuket or Krabi international airports by helicopter (10 minutes) or private car or boat (50 minutes). This fully staffed and serviced private estate for families and groups seeking the most exquisite vacations includes daily housekeeping, premier spirits, house wines, soft drinks and juices, all-day snacks and cocktail service, spa services, unlimited movie and music streaming, complimentary international calling and a daily children’s activity program. If you are looking to unwind in style, this is it!

2 Villa Papillon


From a tropical, sun-kissed destination wedding, to a breezy Seaside corporate retreat, you won’t find a more dynamic host than Phuket’s, Villa Papillon. While maintaining its private, secluded atmosphere, Papillon is just a short walk to Surin and Laemsing Beach. There, you’ll find balmy beachside bars and delicious Oceanfront restaurants serving the finest, and freshest, local delicacies.

When location grants you spectacular Ocean views like Papillon’s, designers are compelled to incorporate them at every possible instance. In this case, architects have executed it to perfection. The living room, lounge, foyer, kitchen, dining room, spa, gym, and all nine air-conditioned bedrooms open to an amazing view of the Sea, a feat that proves the careful consideration of every detail. The interior shared spaces feature modern, minimalistic-chic decor and high-end electronics. Floor-to-ceiling glass doors open to the terrace, ensuring the easy flow of fresh Ocean breeze. If you’re feeling like a relaxing night inside, treat yourself to a lovely spa experience, or kick-back in the air-conditioned home theatre and enjoy the latest movies from a plush recliner. If the night has more of a group dynamic, the formal dining area seats twelve, the kitchen comes with a breakfast bar, and there’s plenty more room for hosting on the terrace.

Outside, a twenty-five-meter infinity pool mirrors the sea. Watch the magnificent Phuket sunset from the terrace deck or lounge in the pool while sipping on a cocktail prepared for you by the six full-time staff. Whether the whole group is gathering together, or you’re looking for a secluded spot to enjoy some alone time, the terrace has plenty of furnished living and dining areas, hammocks, lounge chairs, and balconies to enjoy the Ocean view.

If there’s a golf aficionado in your group, they are in luck. There are five courses within a forty-minute drive. If the city is more your style, visit Phuket’s Old Town for boutique shopping, coffee shops, art galleries, restaurants, and nightlife, all tucked into beautiful heritage buildings.
