Vacation villas are ultimately built for relaxation and leisure. Those on top of their game are a well-sought sanctuary from everyday challenges and responsibilities as the welcomed pause helps gather thoughts, insights, and inspirations. We’ve compiled our favorite villa spots from our luxury villa rentals in Phuket and Koh Samui that may help you reset, refocus, and recalibrate so you can continue to perform at your highest level. 


1. Outdoor walkway through trees to a private sala at Villa Chelay

When the soul craves stillness, a solitary walk in nature is sometimes all it takes to satiate that craving. In Phuket, Villa Chelay‘s outdoor wood-planked passage takes you through enduring cashew trees and tropical plants as you navigate your mind toward quiet contemplation while relishing the open air. 

Pause in a private sala in the middle of the forest to breathe in the fresh air, then finish off the steps to leave you activated and ready for the next moments of life.

Ease your way to meditative flexibility, balance, and healthy harmony of mind, body, and soul with a solid platform under your feet and the universal knowledge you are always supported.

When one wants to focus on unearthing new perspectives, Villa Hin’s glass-fenced rooftop is the perfect pinnacle to adjust and elevate your thoughts. Meditate and reflect on a comfortable lounge mirroring the color of the sea, or sit on one of the playful beanbags resting in front of the boulder walls.  

5. Infinity pool and jacuzzi at Villa Anavaya

In Koh Samui’s northeastern area sits a villa on a hill called Villa Anavaya. Distinct to the villa is its L-shaped saltwater infinity pool and jacuzzi, where you can wade and marvel at a 270-degree panoramic view of the outdoors. 

Meanwhile, the effortless harmony of blue waters, coastline, and landscapes evoke stillness and deep thought. The villa’s lively contemporary design bursts with colorful hues and reels you in to awaken wonder and creativity.

Pacify your mind as you release energy that no longer serves you in a positive sense, and welcome back goodness into your body. Then, relax in a steamy sauna or slip into the jacuzzi bathtub or rain shower as new intentions come to you with clarity and revitalized confidence for what lies ahead. 


7. The Beach at Villa Amarapura

Villa Amarapura’s direct beach access.

Villa Amarapura, located in the Cape Yamu estate, abounds luxurious amenities. However, its most prized possession is its direct access to the beach. 

Be sure to dedicate at least one day to wake up early morning and descend from the villa for a walk along the seashore to hail the sunrise. Feel the soft, sandy earth on your feet, abundant yet gentle, as each step brings you closer to the waters. The Andaman Sea, in all its peaceful demeanor and ever-captivating horizon, inspires travelers as they contemplate and reorient themselves in the right direction.
