The best bits

Every bedroom has its own appeal – the four-poster beds set a distinct look for the rooms, which open up to the pool deck or a little garden. The interiors of the entire villa have been decorated thoughtfully to create a chic, relaxed space for holiday-goers looking for a memorable retreat.

The living room pavilion is next to the pool patio, beyond which is the beach, fringed by a small lawn – the perfect spot for a picnic, we think? If not, the deck has enough space for a barbeque party too (equipment is provided in the villa).

Families staying with young children can request for extra beds at a fee, and use a baby cot for free (simply request ahead of your stay). There is 24-hour concierge service, daily maid services, and security, so it’s truly a fuss-free holiday.

Food & Drink

Bophut Beach’s many attractions, including restaurants and bars, are only a short drive away, but if you like, a private chef can be hired to cook meals for you and your guests throughout your stay (extra charges apply). Breakfast, however, is complimentary for all guests. If you’re able, wake up early for your meal to enjoy it while soaking in the sunrise – the villa faces east!
