A peaceful and luxurious island retreat in the heart of Phuket’s most up-scale beach-side enclave. The expansive 4-bedroom property features a two-storey main house with generous, open plan living spaces, plus a dedicated guest bedroom pavilion, all set around a 12-metre long pool and comfortably furnished sun terrace.
The liberal use of natural materials and plenty of windows to draw in the tropical surroundings lends the villa a distinctive tropical elegance. Polished wooden floors grace the spacious bedrooms and glass doors fold open from every room onto the villa’s many terraces and balconies, making the most of the island environment.
Located within a modest gated development of luxury homes, just a few minute’s walk from stunning Bang Tao beach, the villa and its generous grounds are surrounded by trees and overlook one of the tranquil lakes that give the award-winning Laguna Phuket resort complex its name.
The lower floor of the main building is home to a generous open-plan lounge and dining area, the latter served by a modern, well equipped fitted kitchen. The lounge features two oversized sofas, a coffee table and a wall mounted flat screen TV and opens onto its own furnished outdoor terrace with cushioned patio furniture poised before the inviting swimming pool.
The dining area is adjacent to the kitchen and actually features two spaces in one, as it also slides open onto a private, covered terrace. Both the indoor and outdoor dining spaces are furnished with tables and chairs, giving guests the option of switching spaces for meals depending on their mood and preference. There is also a barbecue ready and waiting for surf&turf treats.
The double bedrooms in the main building all feature king size beds, comfortable furnishings and en-suite bathrooms. The lower floor guest bedroom folds open onto the poolside terrace, while the generous upper floor master suite boasts its own private balcony, furnished with sun loungers offering relaxing lake views. A standalone guest bedroom pavilion sits poolside, also with an en-suite bathroom, and doors that slide open onto the sun terrace. The spacious interior features a sofa and coffee table for daytime relaxation.
The addition of flat screen TVs, a bath tub in the master bathroom and soothing Asian artwork on the walls in the bedrooms makes for an appealing sense of private luxury. More active or communal activities are equally well catered for, thanks to the addition of a dedicated upper floor games room and gym, complete with pool table, weights and fitness machines.
Staying at the villa
The layout and design of this villa perfectly suits guests on a private family holiday, or a group of friends sharing some quality vacation time. Not only can you easily drift between the villa’s inside and outdoor living areas, but you can also move easily between private seclusion and communal fun, dining and entertainment.
The villa’s furnishings and interior accessories lend a homely feel to the property, but it is not too cluttered, leaving plenty of space for guests to feel comfortable even when all the bedrooms are occupied. Access to outdoor terraces and balconies adds further to the sense of space, and also means guests can take full advantage of Phuket’s kind climate, whether sun-bathing by the pool during the day or dining al fresco in the evening.
Staying within the Laguna complex means guests also have access to a vast choice of dining, shopping and recreation options. The area comprises a collection of world-class resort restaurants, indulgent spas, a shopping village, an 18-hole golf course and an up-scale beach club with regular parties and events.
