Your luxury tropical holiday does not get any better than this! Villa Praison is a stunning cliffside private villa in Layan, Phuket. This two-storey villa offers you sweeping views of the surrounding greenery and the ocean at a distance. Enjoy indoor-outdoor tropical living at its finest with its open air design and the infinity-edged swimming pool. If you’re looking for the best villa to stay at with a group of friends or family on the beautiful island of Phuket, look no further because we will tell you all that you need to know below.
With five spacious and beautifully designed bedrooms, this private villa in Phuket can fit up to 8 adults and 8 children! So if you’ve been struggling to find a place where your entire family can fit under one roof, space will definitely not be an issue at Villa Praison.
Four bedrooms are at the lower floor while the Master Bedroom is at the top. Three of those bedrooms are equipped with a king-sized bed, one bedroom has the option to have a king-sized bed or two twin beds, and the last bedroom is the kid’s bedroom which is equipped with four bunk beds. All rooms have air conditioning to keep you cool from Phuket’s tropical heat.
Every day is a battle with yourself – to stay in or not to stay in? That is the question that you will ask yourself every morning because these bedrooms are just too comfortable! The plush blanket and soft pillows hug you close to the bed and tempts you to never leave. Although of course, being on an island as beautiful as Phuket, you’re going to have to get out of bed and see it for yourself.
If there is another thing that Thailand is known for besides their beautiful, white-sand beaches, it is their cuisine. A symphony of flavours in every dish is something you can expect in every bite. The good news is that you don’t have to go too far to find great Thai food, because Villa Praison’s private chef can take care of that.
This private villa has a suggestion menu curated by the team and the chef. This menu serves up their must try dishes from Thai cuisine so that you don’t have to make the hard decision of what to order. If you’re craving something else or are in need of a little palette reset, the in-villa chef can also whip up Western cuisine, Chinese cuisine, or grilled dishes.
Choose to eat indoors on the 12 seater table or al fresco style on the 6 seater table. Although our personal favourite has to be the outside dining space because who doesn’t love to eat a delicious meal in the fresh air and with stunning views?
Some days call for some downtime and rest after a long day of adventure. Villa Praison provides you with the private oasis you need when you just want to spend some time alone with your family and friends. With loads of space to lounge around and relax, a stay-in day doesn’t sound like a bad idea at all!
The indoor living area on the top floor is equipped with couches and a beautiful ocean-view backdrop to enjoy while you lounge. This room has high ceilings and is lined with glass doors so you can take in all the sunlight and picturesque views while seated comfortably in an air conditioned space. If you make your way down to the poolside, there are more spaces to lounge around whether that would be the outdoor sala or the daybeds. Relax here with a book in hand or a refreshing drink!
These lounge spaces are the type of places you can stay in and just completely lose track of time. We could stay here for hours on end and just bask in that feeling of freedom we get when we travel. Although if you want to take your stay-in day to the next level, reach out to any of the friendly villa staff and let them know you’d like to arrange for an in-villa massage (at an additional charge) and they’ll take care of everything! Spoiled and completely relaxed = our idea of a perfect holiday.
There is without a doubt too many things to see around Phuket but before we get to that, let us share with you what you can do from inside your own private villa too! Of course, the pièce de résistance of the villa is the 12.5-metre infinity pool where you can swim to the edge and just enjoy the view or splash around and bond with your travel buddies!
This private villa also has a game room with a pool table, board games, and an Apple TV where you can enjoy your favourite shows or even discover some new ones.
Now if you’re ready to hit the road, Villa Praison’s prime location is close to a number of popular spots! There are nearby restaurants, bars, beaches, and more that you definitely should not miss out on! Grab some BBQ grub at Mr Oody’s or a night-lit dinner at Black Ginger Thai Restaurant for some delicious food. And of course, you can’t leave Thailand without visiting one of the many ethical elephant sanctuaries around! Just be sure to do your research before picking which one to visit.
There you have it! Phuket is definitely one of the best islands that should be on your bucket list if it isn’t already. Villa Praison is the cherry on top to the entire experience. No holiday is complete without the perfect accommodation and this private villa was the missing piece to that puzzle. Booking the villa through The Luxe Nomad has also made the experience even more enjoyable because everything we needed was taken care of by their concierge team. Their staff were amazing, very attentive and always ready to lend a helping hand. By the time you’re reading this last sentence, that plane ticket better be booked!
