About the property

Villa, 5 bedrooms, 10 people

Villa Samakee is a five-bedroom tranquil haven offering space, elegance and total privacy in the secured Layan Estate villa enclave, just minutes away from the soft-sand beaches of Layan and Bangtao on Phuket’s west coast. Ideal for extended families or groups, this spacious holiday retreat features a stunning 20-metre swimming pool and a full complement of quality services.

Villa Samakee’s lush tropical landscape, seamlessly connected indoor-outdoor spaces and expansive Thai contemporary design, offer a wonderful balance of private and fun spaces for families to enjoy, as well as providing a fantastic venue for weddings and special events.

Located in a peaceful residential area, this spectacular villa is a world away from Phuket’s hectic tourist centres yet it remains within easy reach of the island’s finest restaurants, spas and boutiques in and around a collection of luxury resorts in Bangtao Bay and only minutes away from the famous Dream Beach Club.

A sense of majesty ensues from the moment you arrive at Villa Samakee. Entering through its oversized teak front doors is to step inside another world; a true tropical escape. A long stretch of glimmering blue meets you on arrival: the 20 by 5-metre infinity pool, where life in the villa revolves.

The spacious wooden pool deck offers a divine choice of spots to catch the sun’s rays, while a lovely outdoor sala provides a shaded lounge area just a hop away from the 10-person jacuzzi. Towering fan palms and a rich variety of tropical garden plants create a vivid green landscape and a natural border that keep the villa ultra private and secure.

Inside, adding character and colour throughout the villa, is a remarkable collection of art and antiques from traditional Thai temple spires to ancient Buddha statues to bright whimsical paintings, including several depicting Asian archetypes by Belgian artist Christian Develter.

A large living room with a gorgeous vaulted timber ceiling and two walls that open completely to the outdoors offers a nice spot for reading or enjoying a cosy chat with the family. The well-equipped Home Theatre, with 100 satellite TV channels, is a colourful fun space for children and adults alike, while a private study leading to a garden patio provides a quiet retreat. A formal dining room set in front of the superbly fitted out western kitchen has seating for 16.

Each of the five bedrooms offers a very well appointed, peaceful oasis for couples or kids. Romance abounds in the upstairs master suite, which features a two-person terrazzo bathtub that overlooks the pool from its private bathroom.

The villa manager, chef, maid and concierge service ensure that every need is taken care of efficiently and with the utmost professionalism and care. Enjoy a full range of services on offer, from poolside massages to babysitting to booking a round of golf.

Villa Samakee

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Villa Samakee was amazing we couldn't have asked for better service than what we had from the Villa staff. They ensured our stay was everything we had dreamed of. The food was great, we tried several new dishes that was careful made to our tastes by the Villa chef. We didn't leave the Villa once because there was no need to. If we requested something the staff made sure we had it. We loved this short break away, we will be going back next year with some friends of ours. Thank you so much for making our stay fabulous.

Layan Beach

Villa Samakee is located in the secured Layan Estate with high walls and dense foliage giving it complete privacy from neighbouring villas within the estate. Set away from the busy tourist areas, the villa has a feel of total seclusion yet it is easy to access Phuket’s superb west coast beaches and many of the island’s finest dining, shopping and leisure attractions. Just two kilometres away is the world-renowned Banyan Tree Spa, the Laguna Phuket Golf Club, and a wonderful range of dining and shopping choices in and around the Laguna resort complex on Bang Tao Beach. The villa also includes complimentary sun beds and use of all facilities at the famous Bliss Beach Club, Bangtao Beach. The peaceful powder-sand Layan Beach, one kilometre west, retains an idyllic, sleepy feel with traditional longtail fishing boats gliding in and out of the estuary behind it. Shopping centres, nightlife entertainment, international hospitals, more golf courses, marinas and other leisure facilities all are found within a 15- to 20-minute drive.

Villa Samakee is a 25-minute drive south of Phuket International Airport.

How to get there

When you leave the airport, go south on the main highway for about 5 kilometres, until you reach the lights where you can take the first exit to Surin. Get in the right-hand lane and turn right. Follow the road until it makes a sharp 90-degree turn to the left. At that point, turn right towards Laguna. Follow the road for 3.7 kilometres until you reach the main gate for Layan Estates. Tell them you are staying in Villa D. Go straight up the hill. Villa Samakee is the third driveway on your right.
