Villa | 5 bedrooms | sleeps 10
Bang Tao Villa is on a private, secure and beautifully maintained estate of similar, high quality villas. Enter the villa through a set of grand carved wooden doors, close them behind you and discover your own luxurious and totally private haven. All of the villas in the estate are single storey and so, with the wall surrounding the garden, you have complete privacy.
The Villa is designed in the Balinese/Thai style with tasteful use of wood and large pitched roofs balanced by contemporary modern interior design. The buildings are arranged in an L-shape around the pool with the garden beyond. The main living, dining and bedrooms all have hardwood concertina doors which can be drawn back to exacerbate the airy and open feeling.
As darkness descends, the mood changes with wonderful, subtle and controllable lighting coming on automatically - giving the villa a relaxing ambience. Despite having access to over 25 restaurants within 5 minutes, our guests report that they often feel like just cracking open a drink and settling in for the night.
The Villa also has the benefit of surround sound in the garden, to further enhance the relaxing atmosphere.

Main Bedroom and Study/Bedroom 5
The spacious main bedroom looks directly onto the pool and has a King-sized bed situated on a raised platform. There is a comfortable seating area in the room, generous wardrobe space, a dressing table and a safe. A 49 inch wall-mounted flat screen television is also provided.
The room also benefits from a large en suite bathroom with further wardrobe space, his and her vanity units and a shower.
The 5th bedroom shares the bathroom with the main bedroom. It is over 4m by 4m and has a Queen-sized bed. Whilst it is easily big enough for two adults, it is ideal for families where parents want to have younger children close by. A cot is provided in this room but it can be moved to any room you prefer.
Bedrooms 2 and 3
These rooms (one with a King-size bed and one twin bedded) both have their own private bathrooms with toilet and shower as well as vanity basins. The double room also has the added benefit of an enclosed yet outdoor bath and shower – definitely one for candles and wine as you relax in the bath and look at the stars.
Both rooms have flat screen TV's and CD/DVD players and, like all the bedrooms, ample wardrobe space. They also both have a small dressing table and mirror.
In the corner of the L-shape, between these two bedrooms, is a small covered outside bar area with its own mini-fridge and 4 stools
Within the grounds of the villa is a separate Garden Suite. It has a King-sized bed and a cosy seating area with a double bed-settee. The bathroom houses a shower and a 2 person bath as well and includes a double vanity unit. The Garden Suite is ideal for Guests, Grandparents or teenagers. Families with young children like it too as the children can sleep on the bed settee in the same room as the parents. The Suite opens out on to the garden and pool area.
This room also has a TV, CD/DVD player as well as its own safe.
As with all of the rooms there is a dressing table and mirror.
Open Plan Living and Dining Area
The Main Living, Kitchen and Dining area is over 80 square metres in size (approximately 6m x 13m). It features a large living area with settees and occasional tables as well as a 49 inch flat screen TV and a CD/DVD player. For our guests enjoyment, we provide fresh flowers in the Living Room (usually orchids) on a weekly basis.
The dining area has a large dining table with 8 chairs – although the table can comfortably seat 10. Within a cupboard between the living and dining area is the music system which has a CD player as well as iPod/MP3 player docking station. This system also provides music to the surround sound speakers in the garden, if required.
There is a breakfast bar (with 3 stools) separating the dining area from the large European/American style kitchen.
The kitchen has everything you need for your holiday, including a large American style fridge, cooker, microwave, dishwasher as well as useful household gadgets such as food mixers and blenders. Behind the kitchen is the utility room and maid's area which contains the washing machine and dryer as well as a separate small room and toilet. Note that our maid does not live in but this accommodation is suitable for when guests bring their own maid with them.
Both the Living and Dining rooms open out on to the Pool with large hard wood concertina doors which tend to get opened in the morning and left like that until the sun sets. Between these doors and the pool is a large outdoor dining table for al-fresco dining. The table has a large umbrella to give protection from the sun.

Garden and Sala
The garden is approximately 750 square metres in size, is level and laid to lawn with lush borders containing a selection of tropical flowers including orchids on all of the trees.
The swimming pool is 4m by 10m going from 1.2m to 2.2m in depth. Three fountains gently cascade water into the pool, adding to the relaxed feel.
To one side of the pool is a Jacuzzi with power jets and seating for 8.
The Jacuzzi sits in front of the Sala. A Sala is a covered area in a Thai Garden suitable for relaxing in, for massages or just simply drinking a chilled glass of white wine or ice-cold beer as the sun goes down. There are two large settees with space for 8 people as well as a large coffee table.
There are 4 sunbeds set by the pool with sunshades.
At dusk the garden is automatically lit throughout by subtle (and adjustable) lighting which immediately gives the Villa a lovely romantic and private feel. It's perfect for those relaxed evening meals under the stars.
There is also a lovely Hammock in the garden for chilling out under the shade of our trees as well
The Phuket region
Phuket is Asia’s most popular beach holiday destination and it’s not hard to see why. Splendid beaches where the sands stretch for miles, championship golf courses, every type of watersport, secluded bays and lovely outlying islands make Phuket unforgettable.
Phuket itself is 50km long and 20km wide and fully deserves its name as the Pearl of the Andaman for both its shape and beauty. This is thanks to its incredible beaches, rolling hills and lush tropical jungle set against the background of verdant coconut palms and sparkling lagoons.
The best beaches are on the west coast. These bays are separated by a number of rocky headlands which remain forested and so give the scenery a lush feel. Every bay is unique, each having their own charm but, because they face west, are renowned for their beautiful sunsets. Bang Tao Beach (the closest to the villa) is regarded as the best. This is because it has a relative lack of development along its shores with only around 20 hotels along its entire 7km length. What this means is that there few people but still plenty of restaurants and bars to eat in. Really useful when, as a parent, you can let your kids run around on the beach whilst you enjoy your meal at the table nearby. There are also two tame baby elephants that visit every afternoon that you can play in the water with.
Within 5 minutes drive of the villa there are:
- over 25 restaurants
- local shops, supermarkets and pharmacies
- two great beaches
- a championship golf course
- a medical centre
- water sports (dinghies, water skiing, jet skiing)
- elephant trekking
- horse riding
- several spas
- local markets
- water park
