Sawan is Thai for ‘Heaven’, a word that perfectly captures this retreat’s enviable hillside location in the Baan Thai Surin Hill private estate, looking down over some of Phuket’s most desirable west-coast beaches.
Blending a tropical setting, enchanting contemporary Thai design and dazzling sunset views, Baan Surin Sawan is an unforgettable villa escape. The property reflects its owners’ passion for travel and art, evident upon arrival as guests are serenely greeted by a superb collection of Buddhist monk statues. Throughout the villa are intricate wall hangings, embroidered fabrics, African masks and other works of art sourced from around the world. Floor mosaics and eye-catching design details combined with an extensive use of wood, marble, stone and other natural materials give the villa a distinctive flair.
The villa’s pitched-roof pavilions house welcoming private and communal accommodation in four spacious bedroom suites, an inviting living room, entertainment room, modern kitchen and stately dining room, while tropical outdoor living can be enjoyed to the full around the villa’s 10-metre pool.

Thailand’s largest island is an international magnet for beach lovers and serious divers, who enthusiastically submerge themselves in the Andaman Sea. Blue lagoons and salmon sunsets make for a dream-like atmosphere, and indeed, a vacation here can feel a bit surreal. Watersports are the most popular activities, though once you’ve had enough sun there’s still plenty to explore at the island’s aquariums, gardens, and Buddhist temples . Temperatures hover around 30°C all year round, but the high-season really sits between November and March when the rains die down and the Andaman Sea settles to a lake-like calm. Outside of these months the weather remains hot and humid, and there’s plenty to do in terms of activities, whether it’s diving amidst the limestone islands, birdwatching, relaxing in a spa or hiking through the jungle. July to October is a bit more challenging when it comes to the weather, as the seas whip up and red warning flags litter the beaches – good for surfers, particularly on the west coast, but not as much fun for those hoping to lounge. There’s also no guarantee of sunshine during this period, and it’s not unusual for it to rain for weeks at a time in late summer and early autumn.
