Villa Jia

Natai Beach, Phuket, Thailand
Sleeps 12 guests / 6 bedrooms
Villa Jia extends luxuriously over 6,400sqm of beachfront property on the pristine white sands of Natai Beach, just 25 minutes to the north of Phuket International Airport. The approach to Villa Jia is via a lush Thai landscape interspersed with captivating views of the Andaman Sea. The sheer enormity of the property becomes apparent when pulling into the private driveway, where welcoming staff await guests with warm smiles and cool refreshments.

Once within the villa grounds, a granite water feature cascading into a reflective pool gilded with lily pads heightens one's senses. The villa's four open-plan contemporary Thai-style pavilions are connected by a series of walkways and corridors embellished with hand-carved wooden reliefs from northern Thailand. Between each pavilion are lush gardens and courtyards that glow an emerald green. An enormous lawn, ornamented with coconut palms, a 25-metre infinity pool, bar area and two salas, invites guests with the allure of romantic sunsets and candlelit alfresco dining. And with the endless azure of the Andaman Sea stretching out just beyond the lawn, the villa grounds make the perfect setting for an unforgettable wedding or other special celebration.

Two pavilions house the villa's six ensuite bedrooms, providing optimal comfort and privacy with easy access to the living spaces. Throughout are rich teakwood features and whitewashed walls accented with photographs depicting the region's underwater wonders. Should the weather become ornery, guests will find sanctuary in the comfortable 'Great Room', or in the family room with its home cinema and games room below.

A modern kitchen occupies a fourth pavilion, oozing the exotic aromas of Thai dishes prepared by Villa Jia's professionally trained chef. A small army of villa attendants, under the charge of a knowledgeable manager, are on call and ready to serve, while 24-hour security ensures guests' privacy and safety.

Layout

The open-plan 'Great Room' rests at the centre of Villa Jia with bedroom pavilions on either side, mirroring each other in size. Opposite the kitchen, near the villa's courtyard entrance, is a family room with downstairs home cinema and games room. To the front of the property is an expansive lawn with a 25-metre pool and two garden salas.
Location
Jivana Beach Villas is ideally located on the pristine white sands of Natai Beach just 25 minutes from Phuket International Airport. The estate comprises three private luxury rental villas each boasting between 60 and 90 metres of absolute beachfront on what has been dubbed "Thailand's answer to The Hamptons" – an exclusive community of luxury properties that attracts many expatriates living in the region.

Private villas and a handful of resorts dot the area, but the approach to the estate is marked by fishing villages, roaming livestock and traditional farms, giving it an authentic rural feel. Despite its tranquil setting, the Jivana Beach Villas is only an hour away from Phuket's popular beaches, and The Aleenta and Iniala resorts offer award-winning dining just a stroll away along the sand.
