Best Areas in Phuket to Rent a Luxury Villa

The island of Phuket is a place with a diverse variety of locations – populated with astoundingly opulent luxury villas – from which to select as the base for your stay. If your fancy leans towards the beach, the jungle, or the city: Phuket has a slice of everything. Let’s take a look at a brief rundown of the highlights of some the finest destinations for renting a private luxury villa in Phuket.

1. SURIN

On Phuket’s west coast, we find Surin. Many of the attractions in Surin are focused around its fantastic, world-famous beach: the perfect relaxation destination. Home to a host of natural wonders, Surin is a slice of tropical paradise not at all lacking in modern comforts, plentifully provided with restaurants, stores, attractions, beach clubs and more. With a wide selection of staggeringly luxurious villas to choose from, Surin is sure to never fail in impressing and entertaining its guests.

The Ayara Hilltops overlooking the beach, and Laemsingh Villas are two of the well-known developments in the area.

2. KAMALA

Kamala is also situated on the western coast – just south of Surin. Like Surin, Kamala plays host to a beautiful sandy beach, great for a swim. The beach is not as overrun as some of the more populated beaches in Phuket, making it a great place to relax with the family. Something of a smaller, quainter area that the bustling tourist areas of Phuket, Kamala is a great place to get some peace and quiet. There is still plenty to provide for entertainment and nourishment however, with a selection of nearby restaurants and even a theme park.

The infamous “Millionaire’s Mile” is located in the area, lined with some of the finest luxury villas of Andara Villas and Jomchang Villas.

3. PATONGdriftwood47

Patong is the ultimate tourist hub in Phuket, located on the west coast. The sprawling town plays host to the great opportunities for nightlife, fine dining, shopping, spas, and other tourist attractions. Patong Beach is also a delight in any season.

Samsara Villas is one of the closest luxury estates to Patong but there are also many independent individual luxury villas around the area.

4. KATA NOI

Further south still is Kata Noi. This area is fairly sparse in commercial developments, but not without its opportunities for cuisine and a few shops. Far from the large crowds, Kata Noi is a beautiful, unspoiled paradise. The long Kata Noi beach offers huge opportunity for exploration along the lavish coastline stretching for miles in either direction – on foot or even swimming.

Katamanda Estate has one of the best luxury villas in the area.

5. CAPE YAMU

Cape Yamu is on the eastern coast of Phuket. It is a notable destination for its host of exclusive luxury residences. These private homes and villas – along with a resort – are the main development in Cape Yamu, though it is serviced by a few stores and restaurants. This is a fantastic location to immerse yourself in the wonders of Thailand’s natural beauty and the seclusion offered by this exclusive destination.

The luxury villas of Cape Yamu and The Bay Yamu are two of the best developments in the area.

6. BANGTAO

On the northwestern coast of Phuket, we find Bangtao. Bangtao is a strip of development – resorts, luxury villas and a few accommodating businesses – located in a piece of Phuket just moments from rural areas and small towns rich in tradition and culture of the area. Bangtao beach is a stunning destination for a great swim or just to get a relaxing tan. There are also many beach clubs in the area if you want to party or chill out by the beach with good music. Nikki Beach is the best one I should say.

Layan Estate & Trisara are the closest villas to Bangtao.

7. NATAI

Natai Beach is a gorgeous strip of land to the north of Phuket. It’s inviting sands have made it home to several fine luxury villas and aspiring resort destinations. Quite secluded, the beach is a relatively unknown and provides a stunning opportunity for a private paradise with a view neigh unrivaled.

The Sava is a known development in the area having the finest beachfront villas.

8. CAPE PANWA

Cape Panwa is a destination which has attracted celebrities, billionaires and luxury travelers of all measure. The incredible villas at Cape Panwa are second only to the stunning natural wonders which are so abundant in the region. While quite secluded and private, Cape Panwa has everything it needs to keep its high class, luxury guests well furnished in every opulence and comfort expected of first-rate travel experience.

Sri Panwa has some of the best villas in the area.
