Baan Amandeha is a brand new private luxury beach villa, located in the centre of Ao Yon Bay, Phuket's most beautiful white sand beach. Ao Yon beach is picturesque and sheltered and is, therefore, one of the select few beaches on Phuket that offer you 365 days a year swimming. Phuket's west coast beaches are all closed for most of the period from May thru Nov, plus closed on any days with strong tides. This is especially important for families with children.
It is located on Phuket's famous Cape Panwa peninsula, which is surrounded by beautiful islands and is the gateway to the islands of southern Phuket such as Phi Phi Island and Koh Racha. Cape Panwa, on Phuket's southern coast, is where you'll find the luxury end of tourism and away from Phuket's lower-end mass-tourist offerings found on the west coast, making it perfect for both families and those seeking an exclusive, luxurious and relaxing beach holiday.
The villa is also only 10-15 minutes away from Phuket Town with all of its bars, restaurants, colourful markets and designer shops; 15 minutes from the main shopping centres of the island; 15 minutes from Phuket's famous night market; 5 minutes from Cape Panwa peninsula with it's bars, restaurants, and The Phuket Aquarium.
You could decide not to leave Ao Yon Beach as there are wonderful restaurants and bars on your doorstep, including The Brasserie on The Beach, the beach restaurant and beach club of Phuket's best restaurant and ‘institution', The Brasserie in Phuket Town, which is only a 30 second walk along the beach from the villa. They'll prepare champagne and oysters, a ‘just-caught' barbequed fish, or the island's best fillet steak tenderloin! The Beach Restaurant just one minute away also serves delicious Thai food directly on the beach – a real ‘no shoes' experience and always popular.
The villa has been designed by one of Thailand’s finest architects, Khun Navachon Suksawat. The brief we gave her was to create a luxury villa that is contemporary, spacious and light. It had to be visually stunning, but most importantly make the occupants feel special. She created the villa over two separate buildings connected by a sky bridge. This gives all occupants the maximum light and space. In fact all 10 bedrooms enjoy sea views, all have either a private terrace or balcony, and all enjoy en-suite facilities. She also designed our sister property - The Beach House at Ao Yon Bay with the same inspiration, which is located just next door and can be used when more space is required for larger groups.
To give the villa a spacious feel and to ensure it is bright, she used huge floor-to-ceiling glass windows and doors in all bedrooms and living areas to enable the beautiful views of the beach, sea and islands to flood into every area of the villa. In fact of over 50% of the villas exterior is glass to give you a feeling of being part of the wonderful surroundings.
Continuing the theme she has used high ceilings in all areas. The main living area is over 200 sqm and features a huge open-plan living, dining and kitchen with seated bar. Equipped with lounge and soft seating it will be such a wonderful place to read a magazine, or catch up with friends on Facebook.
Outside there are carefully landscaped gardens, with ornamental pots, tropical plants, palm trees, and a 200 years old tamarind tree. There is a fully-equipped professional bar with fridges, freezer, ice and wine coolers, pizza oven and large BBQ. There is an infinity edge 12m swimming pool, with sunken seating, and integral Jacuzzi. Surrounding the pool there are sun loungers plus umbrellas to give you shade, or enjoy to enjoy a pool-side massage overlooking the sea. You'll enjoy wonderful sea views from every corner of the garden, and can access the beach and sea directly from the garden.
The villa also enjoys a fully equipped spa, with a two bed massage room, plus 8-person steam room. Within the spa there is also a private outdoor two-person Jacuzzi with chromotherapy lighting system. Our massage therapists will come to the villa and you can enjoy a whole range of relaxing treatments.

Beach Advice: There are only a handful of select resorts in Phuket that offer a truly private beach experience. The majority of beaches, even those in many 5* resorts, are easily accessible by droves of beach ‘touts', hordes of tourists and public water craft. The beautiful beach in front of Baan Amandeha is protected by private roads which means you won't be fighting for space with hundred's of other holiday-makers, you won't have jet ski's zooming past all day and you won't be bothered by beach ‘touts' trying to sell you their wares. It is luxurious, very beautiful and has high quality beach restaurants, massage boutique, a water sports and sailing operator plus a few luxury private properties.
Please note also, that Phuket's west coast beaches are closed for 6 months each year due to their strong riptides. Ao Yon Bay's lovely beach offers safe swimming, 365-days a year.
