Baan Amandhara is located on Phuket's famous Cape Panwa peninsular, 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.
It is located next to our other two super-luxury beachfront villas, Baan Amandeha, and The Beach House. It 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.
The villa is also only 10-15 minutes away from Phuket Town with all of it's 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 peninsular 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 a villa that gives all occupants the maximum light and space. In fact 5 of the 6 bedrooms enjoy sea views, whilst one has a lovely private terrace. The 5 sea-view rooms all have either a private balcony also, and all bedrooms enjoy en-suite facilities. She also designed our two sister properties - Baan Amandeha and The Beach House at Ao Yon Bay with the same inspiration, which are located on either side of Baan Amandhara and can be used when more space is required for larger groups.
Continuing the theme she has used high ceilings in all areas. The main living area is over 100 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, and palm trees. There is a fully-equipped professional bar with fridges, freezer, ice and wine coolers, and a professional BBQ. There is an infinity edge 10m swimming pool, with sunken seating, and integral Jacuzzi. Next to the pool there are sun loungers plus parasols to give you shade, or to enjoy a pool-side massage overlooking the sea. You'll enjoy wonderful sea views from every corner of the garden, and have direct access to the beach.
Baan Amandhara beachfront villa is a very special place, a one in a million property. It is one of Phuket's finest properties when you consider it's direct beach access and seafront location, plus it's modern contemporary design. Consider the attentive service levels you will receive, with full-time housekeeping and your own personal concierge, it must become your favourite choice. Baan Amandhara is perfect for families due to the direct beach access and safe seas for children, but would also make the perfect party house for groups of friends or, combined with the larger Baan Amandeha would make a spectacular location for a large private wedding too.

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 Amandhara 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.
