The property reflects the relaxing architecture of Northern Thai Style with the accommodation generously spaced around a large 60 sq. m. Ying-Yang blue tiled pool. A sala for relaxing outdoors is provided next to the pool and a spacious terrace provides the ideal setting for outdoor entertaining.
In the main building the living areas have granite flooring with quality furnishings throughout including beautiful paintings and artefacts all of the highest quality enhancing the tranquil ambiance. A large open kitchen is located between the living area and media room.

The six ground floor villa bedrooms, each with a king size bed and en-suite bathroom, including full size bath plus shower, have their own distinct colour scheme featuring Jim Thompson silks, are arranged in symmetry around the swimming pool. Large glass doors open into the garden filling the room with the freshening aroma of frangipani and lean palm trees. The decor in every room varies, with materials carefully chosen to evoke individual character and feeling. Cooling marble floors are decorated with carpets from China, tatami-like mats and colourful rugs, while practical furniture of rattan or teak wood complement the King-size bed, which acts as the room's centre piece.
To accommodate varying tastes in style, some rooms have a contemporary character, whilst others are more traditional.
The two upstairs bedrooms with balcony, above the main living area, have a more modest décor and share the use of a fully equipped bathroom including bathtub and shower.
The villa staff pride themselves on providing friendly and attentive service and include a cook, driver, house maid and gardener. Breakfast is served at a time to suit guests, either in the bedroom or on the terrace over looking the pool. Other meals can also be provided to match guests choice of menu (24 hrs notice). All produce is purchased fresh from the local market and charged at cost.
In-house massage can be arranged, either in the privacy of guest rooms or on the sala over looking the pool.

Until only a few years ago the area we describe as ‘Greater Phuket’ (pronounced Pooket) was served only by Phuket Airport. There is now a second international airport at Krabi and a third, near Khao Lak, is on the drawing board. Nevertheless, the majority of visitors to the whole area still pass through Phuket Airport and complete their journey by land or sea; Phuket Island is host to by far the greatest number of tourists and expatriates in the area.
Although Phuket, lying just 7 degrees north of the equator, has become well known internationally as a ‘sun-sea-sand’ tourist destination and expatriate haven, this stunning tropical island and the surrounding areas have managed to avoid many of the mistakes and pitfalls that usually go hand-in-hand with tourism development.
Himmaphan is located close by to Bangtao Beach and the luxury hotel complex of the Laguna area. An array of top class restaurants and bars are just 5 minutes drive away as are Surin and Lamsaeng beaches. Patong, the nightlife area of the island is only 20 minutes drive to the south.
The Himmaphan Villa is 25 minutes drive from Phuket’s international airport.
