The Beach House at Ao Yon Bay is an ultra-modern private sea view villa, located directly on the Island’s most beautiful beach. Being located in the centre of Ao Yon Bay, Phuket’s most beautiful white sand beach, there could be no better position on the island. 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. Sleeps 6-8 comfortably, it has two en-suite double bedrooms, plus a trendy mezzanine bedroom ideal for up to a further four children, or two adults.
It 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.
The villa is also only 10-15 minutes away from Phuket Town with all of its modern 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 its 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’ barbecued 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.
This villa, plus our sister villa Baan Amandeha have 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, and to allow the views of the ocean to be enjoyed from all areas of the villa. Most importantly the villa had to make the occupants feel special. She created the modern and contemporary villa, with a huge 4.5m floor to ceiling glass wall covering the entire south face, making you feel like the sea can be touched. This gives all occupants the maximum light and space. There are two double bedrooms, plus a mezzanine floor overlooking the open-plan living area which can sleep four children, or a further two adults.
The main living area enjoys a 4.5m high ceiling giving you a real sensation of space and light. It features a large open-plan living area, dining and fully equipped kitchen. Equipped with lounge and soft-seating it will be such a wonderful place to read a magazine, catch a movie on the 60-inch TV with over 200 international satellite channels or catch up with friends on Facebook or Skype, using the high Wi-Fi speed internet.
The living room windows fully open, and lead onto the terrace for outside dining or a BBQ. Connected to the terrace is the plunge pool, which can turn into an 8-person heated Jacuzzi at night.
The gardens are carefully landscaped gardens, with ornamental pots, tropical plants, palm trees, and a 100 years old conifer tree, giving you natural shade. There is a fully-equipped bar and BBQ, plunge pool with sunken seating, sun loungers plus beach-club cabana style seating perfect to give you shade, or to enjoy a massage by the beach. You’ll enjoy wonderful sea views from every corner of the garden, and can access the beach and sea directly from the garden.

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.
