VILLA OF THE MONTH   |     13 Sep 2017   |   0  |  
Situated a pebble’s throw from the sublime shores of Phang Nga’s glorious Natai Beach, Villa Nandana offers a luxurious private retreat for guests to enjoy

With accommodation spread across three spectacular pavilions, Villa Nandana offers a spacious private retreat for families or groups of friends to enjoy

Featuring traditional Thai interiors, gorgeous landscaped outdoor areas and direct access to exquisite Natai Beach, Villa Nandana is one of the most sought-after holiday properties in the Phuket region. The accommodation has been designed with total comfort in mind, and guests can look forward to relaxing in a cocoon of luxurious tranquillity. We take a closer look at exactly what this splendid beach villa has to offer.

Excellent position

Villa Nandana enjoys a stunning position, less than a moment’s stroll from the soft sand of Natai Beach

Selecting the perfect holiday property often comes down to choosing the right location and facilities to suit your personal vacation needs.  Villa Nandana’s inspiring location metres from the serene, rolling surf of the Andaman Sea doesn’t disappoint. The property’s design makes full use of its unspoilt beachside setting and the exclusive grounds provide a private tropical playground for guests of all ages to enjoy.

Phang Nga province itself comes with a host of advantages. Not only does it benefit from the sublime beaches and exotic tropical scenery that has become synonymous with Thailand’s island hotspots; it is significantly less built-up than some of Phuket’s busier tourist hotspots. Despite this tranquillity, the villa is only swift 30-minute drive from Phuket Airport, as well as all the facilities – including marinas and golf courses – the island has to offer.

First-rate facilities

Villa Nandana is home to its own private fitness suite, so guests can carry on with their exercise routines whilst on holiday

Perhaps one of Villa Nandana’s key highlights is the fact that its traditional Thai design is complemented perfectly by a wealth of modern facilities. From high-speed broadband internet to a hi-tech Sonos sound system that allows guests to stream their favourite tunes throughout the property.

The villa offers four generously proportioned bedrooms, each with its own ensuite facilities and some with a private tub and dressing area. Two of the three guest bedrooms can be transformed from double into twin rooms, making the property an attractive option for family stays. Some of the rooms – including the master suite – open directly onto the villa’s inviting 20-metre infinity swimming pool, which is surrounded by a furnished terrace and framed in a lush garden with views of the ocean.

There are plenty of communal facilities for guests to enjoy, too. In addition to the capacious, contemporary lounge area, there’s a fully equipped modern kitchen and a stunning dining area that also offers vistas and sounds of the sea. A dedicated spa room gives this villa extra wow factor in terms of the exclusive facilities t offers guests.

Outside, the infinity pool and surrounding terrace form an appealing focal point to the stay. Emerald, landscaped lawns lead down through a small collection of palm trees and to the soft, sandy beach. There’s a plush outdoor sofa for guests that want to relax and soak up the views, plus a number of loungers spread around the pool for serious sunbathers.

Tailored services

Guests staying at Villa Nandana can expect to receive first-class service, tailored to their each and every need, including sumptuous meals prepared by the in-house professional Thai chef

Guests at Villa Nandana receive a warm welcome from the team of on-site staff. The villa manager is on-hand throughout the stay to help organise activities and excursions, and is also able to provide in-depth local knowledge on cultural and natural sites of interest. For guests keen to enjoy some authentic Thai cuisine while on holiday in the Kingdom, the Thai chef at the villa can put together a menu of delicious local favourites, as well as delectable fusion dishes. The cost of the food is simply added to the guests’ account. The maintenance team is on hand to ensure the villa remains as clean and welcoming as when guests first enter the property. Additional staff can also be organised for special events such as birthday parties and private weddings.

Visual allure

Guests at Villa Nandana can make the most of the unbroken connection between the villa’s indoor and outdoor spaces

Traditional Thai grandeur meets contemporary flair in this striking standalone villa. Three separate pavilions house the living accommodation have been arranged to make the most of the stunning beachside position, so that multiple rooms look out onto the expansive pool area, gardens and out towards the ocean. Inside, high teak ceilings and smooth timber floors give the property an authentic Thai appeal, with rich honey-coloured wood tones complementing the electric blue of the ocean backdrop seen through the windows.

Indoor and outdoor living was a major theme when the architects and designers put together the plans for this unique property, and the floor-to-ceiling windows that form the edge of the lounge area glide back to create a seamless transition with the garden. Large pieces of artwork give the walls a stylish splash of colour, and high-quality fabrics and plush cushions infuse the space with an unmistakeable air of luxury.

Out and about

Proximity to the beach opens up a whole range of opportunities for seaside fun and games

Thanks to its prime location just metres from Natai beach, guests can enjoy a wealth of seaside activities at Villa Nandana – from seashell hunts to competitive family ball games. There are also plenty of opportunities for relaxation, whether you fancy a spot of sunbathing on the sand or a shaded snooze next to the villa’s cool blue pool. Natai beach has become a favourite high-end destination for those seeking an escape from the hustle and bustle of Phuket’s busier tourist hotspots. A choice of excellent golf courses and marinas are within easy driving distance. There’s also a selection of restaurants scattered along Natai Beach for those who are keen to enjoy a meal or two out.
