For Rent THB31,803 - Villa
The exquisite Villa Wang Nam Jai blends Thai and contemporary style with inspiring sea views for an unforgettable holiday escape. Clinging to a lush hillside at the edge of a private estate, Wang Nam Jai brims with a serene elegance first revealed upon descending a staircase at the entrance flanked by flowing water, flowering frangipani and perfumed pandanus.
Spread over five floors, the villa has a beautiful balance of shared spaces and private rooms, all with modern amenities and fabulous views from floor-to-ceiling windows. Peak-roofed pavilions are arranged around large terraces on two levels, off which are a living room with stunning views and, below next to the pool, a comfortable and well-equipped media room. Tucked privately away in one corner of the estate are a cluster of ocean-view pavilions housing three guest bedrooms and a fitness/yoga room. Complete privacy is also assured for those staying in the large master bedroom, which occupies the entire upper level of a large pavilion above the dining room and kitchen.
The cool and calm of water is a strong feature at Villa Wang Nam Jai, expressed through its magnificent views across Patong Bay, 20-metre pool, koi fishponds and luxurious tubs in every ensuite bathroom. The water theme also extends to the villa’s name: ‘Nam Jai’ translates to ‘water heart’ in Thai, an expression meaning kindness and generosity, while ‘Wang’ means ‘palace’. From its expansive and inviting living areas to its caring and attentive staff – including a full-time villa manager and chef – Wang Nam Jai truly lives up to its name as a generous palace.
Located a short drive from Phuket’s International Airport and within easy reach of Kamala and Patong, Villa Wang Nam Jai is close enough to the action, yet its private estate setting ensures a serene and peaceful stay.
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.
