With spacious bedrooms, fully equipped kitchens, game rooms, charming private pools, and friendly staff to keep an eye on the tots, our family-friendly villas guarantee a happy (and safe) holiday for your family. Add to that the plethora of restaurants, beaches and outdoor activities steps away from the villa and you have the perfect recipe for a wholesome vacation.
Here’s our curated list of our top 10 family-friendly villas in Phuket. Which one catches your fancy?
1. Sava Beach Villas – Villa Cielo
Natai Beach is a haven for families with pristine, white sand and no crowds to speak of. Sitting pretty, right on the beach, Villa Cielo is part of the exclusive Sava Beach Villas complex. Though all the villas in this complex are drool-worthy, this six-bedroom haven stands out particularly for multi-generational families with amenities such as a pool table, trampoline, foosball table and surfboards to keep everyone busy. You’ll love the 25-metre pool and lush lawns where kids can run around safely as you sip a cocktail in the covered gazebo.
2. Jivana Beach Villas – Villa Ananda
Villa Ananda is an extravagant seven-bedroom abode, perfect for large families. Offering 9,500 square metres of space, including more than 80 metres of beachfront land, kids will have plenty of room to run around. Cook up a storm in the modern kitchen or let your private chef handle all your dining requests. The family room houses a flat-screen TV and comfortable sofa seating, the perfect venue for movie nights.
3. Katamanda – Villa Amanzi
While we’re talking about villas within gated complexes, Villa Amanzi deserves a mention. Though the highlight may be sunset views over the sea every evening from its double-level terrace housing an enticing 15-metre infinity pool, barbecue area and shaded sala, the open-air spa is what the adults are sure to love. For what is a vacation in Thailand without a relaxing massage, we ask? For a change of scene, you are also welcome at the estate clubhouse for exclusive use of its fitness centre, tennis court or pool.
4. Katamanda – Villa Kata Moon
Spend that much-awaited family holiday at three-bedroom Villa Kata Moon. Wake up to spectacular pool and sea views in the master bedroom on the ground floor or the garden view twin-bed guest room on the same level. Take a morning dip in the dazzling 8-metre infinity pool and bond with the family over breakfast in the covered sala on the vast terrace which has cosy seating and endless sea views. Lastly, end your day with a hearty barbecue dinner in the courtyard’s dining area. Bliss.
5. Malaiwana – Villa Rodnaya
Up your vacation game by checking into Villa Rodnaya, a stylish four-bedroom home overlooking Naithon Beach and part of the exclusive Malaiwana Estate. Positioned to capture exquisite sea views, each of its rooms features sliding glass doors that open to balconies or the wide top-floor terrace housing an 18-metre pool. A transparent safety fence around the pool offers peace of mind for those travelling with kids without obstructing the views, and the poolside dining sala is the perfect spot to enjoy alfresco breakfasts or a barbecue feast at sunset. Tucked away behind the living room is a colourful kids’ playroom and the media room downstairs offers another air-conditioned place to gather. Music enthusiasts are bound to be thrilled with the professional music studio, which can be made available on special request and with prior approval.
6. Villa Nandana
Villa Nandana is an absolute beachfront dream. Featuring four luxurious bedrooms, it offers an exceptional range of facilities such as a glorious 20-metre pool with beach views perfect for an afternoon dip, a modern kitchen for preparing meals for the family, a sea-view alfresco dining sala for relishing meals while taking in the astounding views, a spa room for the grown-ups, and satellite TVs for your viewing pleasure.
7. Laguna Waters
If lakeside views tickle your fancy, then Laguna Waters is the villa for you. Spacious and scenic, the five-bedroom lakeside villa is located within the self-sufficient Laguna Phuket gated community, offering a desirable sense of calm and exclusivity. There’s plenty to do within the villa like languishing in the 14-metre private pool, relaxing in the jacuzzi or challenge a family member to a friendly game of billiards.
8. Villa Chada
Welcoming luxe privacy is six-bedroom Villa Chada, a sea view Thai-style property with an expansive garden littered with sculptures and water features. The freestyle pool mirrors its natural, tropical environment replete with a rocky wall and the open grounds reveal a delightful display of manicured lawns, lotus ponds and tall casuarina trees. With guest rooms tucked into separate pavilions, it is the perfect escape for a group of families travelling together, especially those with older children.
9. Villa Napalai
Set on a private hillside estate with generous views of the Andaman Sea, this four-bedroom luxury villa is a stone’s throw away from Surin Beach. Boasting five-star living facilities with an impressive range of entertainment options, a retreat at Villa Napalai is nothing short of heavenly. Shoot a few in the games room pool table as you grab a refreshing drink from the bar or swim a lap in the infinity pool on a sunny day. The bright playroom is as much of a hit with children as the spa and well-equipped gym with the adults.
10. One Waterfall Bay
Relish utmost privacy at One Waterfall Bay. A cosy sanctuary offering seclusion and comfort, its indoor and outdoor spaces take full advantage of the sea views and tropical setting. Six comfortable bedrooms are spread over four levels, with the main floor home to the living and dining rooms, a pool table, a professional kitchen and a futuristic cinema room which make it the ideal home away from home. The pool and jacuzzi, with outdoor dining and relaxation areas, are just steps away. Facilities such as a spa room with a sauna and whirlpool, a rooftop terrace and study offer more inviting corners to ease off.
