Villa Name: Shanti at Jivana Villas

Ananda at Jivana | Jia at Jivana

Situated on a long stretch of secluded beach overlooking the Andaman Sea, Jivana Villas are unique in that they are one of the very few truly beach fronted villas available in Phuket for private rental.

Located in Phang Nga, 25 minutes drive north of Phuket airport on the unspoiled Natai Beach, each of the four luxury villas each enjoy 6,400 square meters or more of land with 60 to 90 meters beach frontage that gives a true sense of space and tranquility enhanced by the stunning uncluttered garden.

Shanti is laid out with 3 individual pavilions, each with pool and ocean views and designed with an overall contemporary Thai style, a fourth pavilion hosts the kitchen and staff quarters.

When walking in through the entrance gate, the waterfall and its basin are the first hint of the peacefulness one will find in this private home. On either side of the entrance courtyard is the Family room, complete with a 42" flat screen plasma TV, HiFi and library. Opposite, is the extremely well equipped and large kitchen. A reverse osmosis water filtration tap has been installed for clean fresh drinking water at all times.

The central focus of the house is "The Great Room", the large open plan living/dining pavilion. Its glass doors slide into pocket walls to maximize the indoor / outdoor feeling of the room which opens onto a large covered deck. The view to the lap pool, uncluttered garden and ocean is just enough to make anyone relax and savour the moment.

"The Great Room" sits in between two other pavilions which each host three double bedroom. From all the terraces, guests look onto the expansive lawn and coconut grove that remained untouched. Each bedroom has an en-suite bathroom with an outdoor garden and two have outside black granite bathtubs. The bedrooms are fitted with the best facilities and amenities and the owners have privileged tranquility and relaxing as opposed to having TV. Wireless internet is also available throughout the villa.

The double decadence of the 25 meter split level black tiled infinity pools which overflows into a shallow pool ideal for children is the main appeal in the garden, completed with day beds and comfortable sun lounges. At one end of the pool is an outdoor covered dining Sala seating 12 people. A favorite to all guests is the sunset Sala by the beach which is also used for massage, yoga, sundowners or simply an afternoon siesta.

The Duc family - Jan 26, 2017   

My family and Cecile’s family join me to thank you for the opportunity to spend this unique moment in such a wonderful place. We have travelled in some very beautiful houses, but Shanti has this subtle balance between nature, space and elegance that really makes it a magical place. The people working in the house were also irreproachable and extremely friendly. From every level, what you have built there is truly exceptional. We have unforgettable souvenirs, and countless pictures, that will enable us to remember those precious moments for long time.

Mrs. Williams - Dec 04, 2016   

“We didn't leave the villa over 5 days and it we didn't get tired of it.”

Susanna H. - Nov 14, 2016   

We stayed at Shanti for a week in October - two families with children from 3-7 years old. The the villa could not have been more perfect. The staff were always friendly and helpful and efficient. The food was incredible. I don't think I have ever eaten that well - delicious, immaculately prepared fresh food exactly as we asked for it. The chef and villa manager would suggest dishes for us to try which were always tasty. The villa is laid out very well for kids, with bedrooms connected via two bathrooms. Huge spaces to run around in, a big kids pool, and a lovely empty beach. We were thoroughly spoiled and didn't want to leave. This is a very special place. From London

Tara - Sep 06, 2016   

Just to say thank you for your lovely villa. We all had the most relaxing time in beautiful surroundings with wonderful food. Have come back very relaxed if not slightly heavier. The staff were all excellent, attentive, smiling, obliging, cheerful and competent so we could not have asked for me. Although it was monsoon season it was always warm so we got a bit burnt in spite of the time of year. Hope this finds you well and that we will be able to stay in your lovely villa again one day. With best wishes,

Donald - Sep 05, 2016   

Just a quick note to say a hearty thank you to you & your team for looking after us so well. The food was delicious and Toon, Apple & Goong really made us feel special, attending to all our needs. It was truly very relaxing and we all had a fantastic time - hassle free. Many thanks again. With kind regards,

MS ANDERSON - Mar 28, 2016   

The entire staff have been amazing! So kind and helpful, delicious food and such bright and happy personalities! We have been to Phuket nearly a dozen times but this is definitely out favorite spot and so kid friendly we would love to rent again! From Hong Kong

Christian STOECKLING - Aug 13, 2015   

Fantastic beachfront property with great staff! Beachfront Thai style villa comprising of 6 buildings. It has about 60 metres of beachfront about 30 minutes north of Phuket. Beautiful gardens and a black 25 metres infinity pool with ocean view are further highlights. The villa manager Khun Wau and his staff made our stay a wonderful experience - food and service were great! Again! Well done! To the shanti team Wishing you all a wonderful weekend ahead.

Deborah McAulay - Mar 09, 2015   

Dear Robert and Villa team, Wishing you good health, happiness & peace this New Year! We are having the most wonderful time in villa Shanti. I have not left the front door since we arrived. Wow & the team are looking after us exceptionally well. Only sad it's our last day! Much love Deborah

Graziella and Samba - Feb 19, 2015   

We are back in cold, grey Switzerland having left Villa Shanti's paradise three weeks ago. And as usual it was rather hard work to get used to everyday life again. As again we and our friends were thoroughly spoiled by your phenomenal crew at Villa Shanti, by the sun and sea of Thailand, by the luxury of Villa Shanti in blissful general... Mr Wow welcomed us stating that we were more than just guests, that Villa Shanti should be regarded by us as home away from home. He and his crew certainly lived up to this promise. We did indeed feel like being at home, like being with friends. It was - to sum it up - once more a holiday spelled perfection, warmth, kindness and complete relaxation. Forgive us if we repeat ourselves but what is true stays true: Villa Shanti is our haven, our paradise and indeed our home away from home. Thank you both from the bottom of our hearts for granting us to call it so. So it will hardly be a surprise to you that we are determined to come back with our friends. Definitely so. But as planning at the time seems difficult for quite a bunch of reasons - being four couples with eight busy walks of life and all. So please bear with us and allow us to contact you later to see how things are standing. Be assured that we will indeed return to Villa Shanti. As otherwise something very important, something very, very dear to us would be missing from our lives. For the time being let us wish you both and your loved ones the best of health and a most happy Chinese New Year! With our very best regards, Graziella and Samba, Switzerland

John Brunner - Jun 16, 2014   

Dear Andrew Please find below our opinion on staff and their service during our stay: The staff were excellent all round - the only points that could have been improved were that they could have been more pro-active when the guests arrived in terms of making sure that the luggage was taken care of right away. In-house cooking was also excellent, much better than we had expected. We stuck to Thai food so I can't comment on the Western dishes. I should have tried the cheeseburger as a benchmark. Ya was a real asset and he got the whole concept and the requirement of the guests. Da seemed to be the glue that held the staff together and certainly all the staff took their lead from her. Hope to return soon John Brunner

Marcus Ng-Brett - Jun 16, 2014   

Dear Robert & Sally, Thank you so much for letting us stay at your beautiful villa. We had such a wonderful, relaxing time in Phuket - Shanti Villa & the staff all exceeded our expectations, it was a truly memorable experience, (the pool especially was a "winner" for our boys!). Thanks again, Pia & Marcus

Mildred Tao - May 15, 2014   

We have returned from a truly amazing holiday. I can't imagine that all my kids and those that are married and have families all managed to make it and they have unanimously declared it to be one of their most wonderful holidays ever. Relaxing on a super clean deserted beach (with fine sand) with excellent food and superb service, what else is needed? You have set the bar way too high, how can we endure a resort anymore? Thank you for sharing your home with us. With very best wishes, Mildred

Janana Suleymanli - Apr 27, 2014   

Dear Villa Shanti team and owner, please kindly know that every single day was filled with amazing care and attention that we received at your beautiful villa by your wonderful staff, we send praises and best wishes. We have enjoyed it so much that we have and will definitely recommended it to so many people as 'THE' single best possible romantic family getaway in the whole of Thailand! My guests were simply stunned by your taste. Everyone was so professional and they stay has exceeded our every possible wish.

JARED RALEIGH - Aug 22, 2013   

THE STAFF WERE AMAZING thank you very much, the staff a the villa were all excellent and made it a very special experience.

Klaus_PT - Aug 15, 2013   

"Magnificent villa with sensational food..." Barely 30 mins from the airport, this immaculate and luxurious hideaway is perfectly positioned on a deserted stretch of beach. Shanti Villa offers complete seclusion and a true 5-star experience at a reasonable price. When split between 10 people it worked out at approximately 100 Pound per person per night - a pretty decent rate considering that one might easily spend the same staying in a fairly average hotel. Booking was straightforward, as was our arrival when the Villa's driver met us at Phuket airport. During our visit the friendly team of staff obliged our every request with a smile, even organising massages for us in the beachfront Sala. At the time of writing, the other reviews here give an accurate description of the accommodation and facilities so I won't comment further. That said, the food really does deserve a special mention. A wide variety of consistently excellent Thai cuisine was served throughout our stay - something one could easily get used to. This and our magical night-swims, complete with cascading phosphorescence, were definitely highlights!

Simon - Jul 04, 2013   

This was one of the nicest week long holidays we had spent. We were there with our two young children (2 and 5) and another family with similar aged kids and barely left the compound. Between swimming in the pool, playing on the beach, running in the garden, massages in the late afternoon and lazing in the hammock our days were full. The location is just north of Phuket island, which may put some people off, but it truly wasn't an issue for us. There are a number of 5 star hotels near by if you do want to go for a restaurant meal and it is only a 45 min drive if you do want to get into town (however at no point did we feel the need). The layout of the villa complex is perfect for large groups and multiple families with children as there a number of small clusters of rooms with two bedrooms separated by large dual bathrooms with multiple entrances ensuring that people can come in and out without distrubing each other. It is very stylish but understated. And the pool is huge and the beachfront expansive. And I actually managed a couple of days of surfing, which was an amazing surprise. And the owners have done an amazing job of finding a wonderful staff to run the place. They are warm and proffessional and the Thai food produced by the kitchen is truly out of this world! An absolutely amazing getaway and we will definitely be back. From Singapore,

Lesa - May 31, 2013   

We stayed at this Villa at the beginging of april as my sister and her husband were married at the villa. This villa is just beautiful, right on the beach, amazing sunsets, stunning pool and lots of outside space. The staff were amazing, incredibly helpful, the service was wonderful. The rooms were beautifully apoointed. I can not rate this villa highly enough and would love to go back with my family. From Windsor, United Kingdom

Nina F. - Mar 28, 2013   

The ultimate setting for a truly relaxing holiday, even with kid We stayed at Shanti with friends and our 2 little boys (1 and 2) for 9 days in March. From the minute we stepped through the doors, the outside world melted away and we were in our own little slice of paradise. The hospitality, service and attention to detail of the team is second to none. The meals prepared by chef Tun fresh and so delicious, that her cooking has ruined my appreciation for the average Thai restaurant food for good! The layout and facilities of the villa made it easy to look after our two toddlers. The spacious rooms are inter-connected via a double indoor/outdoor bathroom, perfect for families. Although it was very hot during the day, a steady onshore breeze and the shade from the palm trees made it pleasant enough for the kids to be outside most of the day. The children's pool and the expansive lawn leading onto the most pristine deserted beach provide ample room to run around in. If you are looking for the ultimate relaxing holiday, understated luxury and privacy, look no further. It was very hard to leave and we will definitely be back. From London, United Kingdom

Frank - Mar 20, 2013   

I stayed in Shanti-at-Jivani Villas in January 2013. It was amazing. I could not have enjoyed it more. The villa is immaculately designed , spacious and very peaceful. It has a wonderful garden which takes you to the stunning infinity pool and then onto the white sand beach where you can walk for miles without seeing anyone. The bedrooms are incredibly comfortable and luxurious with beautiful wood floors and louvred shutters. And the huge bathrooms are stunning. I really enjoyed the food prepared by the chefs, it was the freshest and most delicious Thai food I have ever tasted. I felt so healthy after a few days. It is also a real bonus that it is only a 20 minute drive from the airport. Frank A from London

CJKOct12 - Mar 15, 2013   

We had a great holiday at Shanti Villas. The location is great, away from the crowds of Phuket but easy enough to drive in. The staff were amazing and the food absolutely delicious. It has an amazing large children's pool, it made it very relaxing to spend time in with young children. The rooms are great, bathrooms beautifully designed and great products to use. We also had massages arranged by the villa in the pavilion by the beach. We will definitely go back. By CJKOct12 from Hong Kong

Charlotte - Mar 15, 2013   

We visited the Shanti villa with two families with young children and had the most amazing time. The villa is very luxurious with large grounds and a fantastic pool. The villa is located right on a lovely beach which is hard to find in Phuket. The bedrooms are separate so you can stay with a few families and not be too close to each other. The food was some of the best Thai food we have had and the staff were lovely. Highly recommended. By Charlotte P from Hong Kong

MARYAM ALLAN - Feb 19, 2013

MR SIMONE COLOMBO - Feb 19, 2013   

This is the best place we've ever been

Mr & MRS ADAM KESWICK - Feb 19, 2013   

A wonderful place

MEGHAN GEDLING - Feb 19, 2013   

We absolutely loved our stay, it was superb. I wouldn't change anything. As a general suggestion perhaps an e-mail in advance to outline protocol with regards to the leader being solely responsible for all requests to the manager. Overall the villa is a fabulous place and the staff where absolutely delightful. Many many thanks Meghan and Thiago

DAVID RAPER - Feb 19, 2013   

The staff where attentive, helpful, polite and the Manager (Sim) was excellent. Food was excellent at times, very good at others.

Iwan Williams - Sep 23, 2011

We had the most wonderful holiday. The villa staff were exceptional the weather very good the food great and the accommodation just gorgeous. Thanks for organising things for us. I hope we will be back in the future. Many thanks, Jules Squires

Luxury Retreats - Sep 23, 2011   

The villa was spectacular, the beach was incredible and the service and food was also excellent. I guess we had a point of comparison from our last stay at Ban Mekala in Koh Samui and Shanti was definitely the next level up. The villa itself was quite beautiful. The amenities and furnishings were excellent. The size and physical space was also amazing as the children had plenty of room to play on the lawn. The 25 metre pool was also sensational and the shallow pool which was adjacent to the deeper pool was fantastic for our young daughter who was not able to swim to in the deeper pool. We loved the direct access to the beach and I have to say it was probably the most beautiful beach I have ever experienced. It was like looking at a post card! Hard to believe but true. The water was clean and warm and we had the beach to ourselves. In the entire time we were there we were the only ones swimming in the water so it felt as though it was our own private beach. The service and food was also amazing. We thought it would be hard to beat the chef that we had in Koh Samui but I have to say that we were not disappointed with Oh, Nok and the rest of the team. The food was sensational. Excellent quality, presentation and of course taste.
