Take a short drive north of Phuket to the untouched sands of Natai Beach, into the elegant realm of a haven of peace and contemporary style with its toes in the sand.
The villa's fresh, bright design sets a calming mood throughout, with crisp gray and white furnishings in soft fabrics and Buddhist-themed décor accents. The villa’s single-story pavilions and lush palm-lined gardens form a presence of unobtrusive luxury, fronted by a 15-meter swimming pool and the endless blue sea and sky that give the villa its name.
The villa comprises two single-story pavilions set on a rectangular plot that extends between a quiet road and the beach. Entering from the parking area you first arrive at the Garden Pavilion, which houses two of the villa’s bedrooms; a covered corridor between the bedrooms leads to a tropical walled garden and koi pond. Steps through the garden bring you to the Sea View pavilion, containing two more bedrooms, the kitchen, living and dining areas. At the front of this pavilion is a furnished terrace overlooking the pool and beach.
The villa's living area is an inviting place to gather, with floor-to-ceiling glass doors that open to the terrace and pool. This air-conditioned space has a calming ambiance with gray sofas and chairs in soft fabrics arranged to face the large flat-screen TV. Satellite and internet cable service, a DVD player, and a Bluetooth speaker make it easy to set the mood with movies or music. The living area can be completely opened up at the front to connect it to the terrace and the cooling sea breezes. Just behind is a dining room with sea views and a table for four. The adjacent kitchen is well-equipped with modern appliances and plenty of workspace on the black granite counters.
No matter where you choose to relax, the soothing sounds of the ocean will form your playlist. Stretching between the villa and beach is the 15-meter pool framed by sand-wash decking and with an outdoor shower. At the front of the living pavilion is a fan-cooled covered terrace furnished with a dining table and sofa, the perfect spot for sundowners or a sea-breezy breakfast. A small Eden of a garden with a koi pond surrounded by palms and tropical plants creates a lush courtyard space between the villa’s two pavilions. At the gated entrance is a car park with space for two vehicles.
All four bedrooms are spacious, bright, and generously furnished. These bedrooms have ensuite bathrooms with showers and are equipped with TVs, air conditioning, and ceiling fans, as well as sliding glass doors that open to either a sea-view or garden terrace.
Ocean View Bedroom
The closest room to the beach, this queen-bedded room showcases stunning sea views. The room is adjacent to the living and dining area and has sliding glass doors that open to the terrace overlooking the pool.
Garden View Bedroom
Set adjacent to the living and dining area, this cozy double room has sliding glass doors that open to the koi pond and tropical garden. Double louvered doors to the ensuite bathroom add an Asian tropical atmosphere.
Garden Pavilion Bedrooms
These are the two largest bedrooms in the villa. Both are furnished with queen-size beds and feature elegant desk areas in alcoves with calming Buddha statues, as well as serene views of the koi pond and garden. Sliding glass doors open to a shared patio.
Extensively renovated in 2017, the current owners received planning permission to build a second floor on the back building of the property. This will allow two additional bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms to be built if the new owner would like additional bedrooms.
Just beyond the villa, Natai Beach offers an idyllic playground with 10 kilometers of soft sand lining the glittering Andaman Sea. And within easy reach are the many delights of Phang Nga, including its karst-dotted bay to explore by boat, jungle parks, waterfalls, and scenic rural landscapes of coconut palm plantations and meandering water buffalo. Natai is still very undeveloped compared to most other beach destinations around Phuket, yet it offers many five-star hotels and restaurants.
