The Pines

Natai Beach, Phuket, Thailand
10 people / 5 ensuite bedrooms
The Pines is one of the newest villas on spectacular, unspoilt Natai Beach in Phang Nga, north of Phuket. Luxuriously private, the villa rests on a secluded beach and has been designed for casual living in natural surroundings by an international team of architects based in London, Milan and Bangkok. The Pines is a rustic yet modern beach house, handcrafted from Burmese teak, Thai ceramics, and granite stone.

The teak wood living room is ideal for socialising and relaxation, with open-plan spaces, comfortable seating and modern appliances. Walls of sliding glass open the structure completely, transforming the living room and pool veranda into a single space overlooking an endless beach, the emerald sea, and unforgettable sunsets.

Outdoor living is encouraged at The Pines. Attentive staff will happily serve you beverages and snacks at the pool veranda and the beachside sala. In addition, a fully equipped gym, home theatre and five comfortable bedrooms beckon you indoors.
DINING
How amazing is the thought of a villa holiday where you don't have to worry about cooking, grocery shopping or washing the dishes? Your private chef at The Pines will happily prepare breakfast, lunch and dinner every day for your group. Mid-afternoon snacks can also be easily arranged.

The extensive suggestion menu offers a variety of authentic Thai dishes to choose from, as well as a good selection of western dishes, including healthy salads and comfort food. Expertly arranged, the menu is split into Thai, western, vegetarian, vegan, kids' and gluten-free sections. There really is something for everyone and dishes can be adapted to suit your preferences.

Besides Thai favourites, we highly recommend the Greek Salad from the western menu. Be prepared to share though, the portions are big. The Pomelo Salad with Prawns is also delicious, and your kids will love the Spaghetti Carbonara. A poolside barbecue can be arranged on request (extra charge). Be sure to order the Catch of the Day, you are merely a few metres away from the Natai Beach Jetty where fishermen go out in the early hours of the morning to catch fish. The additional selection of lobsters, prawns, squid, clamshells and crabs will keep seafood lovers happy.

Thai people are very conscientious about the younger members of your group, and will be happy to serve kids first, to adhere to sleep times.

The villa team takes care of all the grocery shopping which is charged at market price plus a 20% handling fee and a government tax, with a minimum shopping fee of THB 750. You are encouraged to plan your meals with the Villa Manager and the chef, preferably a day in advance. The villa team will keep all receipts for reference when settling bills.

SPA
The Pines has some nice areas for an indulgent in-villa foot or body massage. The shaded sala by the pool is ethereal with the sound of the waves in the background. For more privacy, you can always request for a spa treatment in your room instead. The Elite Concierge will be happy to arrange for spa specialists to come to you villa and treat you to a deluxe treatment (extra charges will apply).

Prices and availability
Location
The Pines is situated on the unspoiled sands of Natai Beach and boasts a significant 50-60 metres of beachfront with no immediate neighbours. This gives it a sense of complete privacy and seclusion, rare to find in Phuket. The 25-minute journey from the airport to the villa crosses the bridge that connects the mainland to the island. The route passes through charming palm-fringed local villages, offering you a glimpse of the traditional way of life.

A stroll along the beachfront brings you to the jetty. Head here early in the morning to view local fishermen in action. Atleenta Resort and Iniala Beach House are both close by and offer alternative dining options, if you wish for a change of scenery. A dream come true for nature lovers, waterfalls, hot springs and beautiful forest trails wait to be explored inside Ao Phang Nga National Park.
