About Brian Phillips

My wife and I adopted two tiny babies from Thailand and Cambodia in 2000 and 2002 respectively and took them back to our home in South Devon, England. They are now two strong minded teenage girls attending very good schools in Devon.

We always wanted to help them maintain their roots in Asia, so we regularly came on holiday with them to Thailand and Cambodia. On one visit to Phuket, we stayed in a beautiful coast side villa with a very helpful manageress called Khun Noi.

Khun Noi loved our daughters, and was delighted when I said that I intended to buy or build a villa and provide our daughters with more permanent roots in Thailand. I could not find a suitable villa for sale, but in 2004 I found a great plot of land in gently sloping woodland overlooking Kata Beach. I designed and built two superb villas, using an "upside down " approach so that each swimming pool, living , dining and cooking areas were situated on the upper floor, with four cool ensuite bedrooms in each villa on the ground floor. I wanted my daughters to feel part of a Thai family and our guests to enjoy the full Thai experience of a fully staffed villa, so I was very pleased when Khun Noi promised to manage my two villas and provide full staff, chefs and a handyman/driver. More than 10 years later, she is still looking after our guests as if they are the very first ones.

I purchased the land, and designed and built the villas in 2005. ( We were in the middle of construction when Phuket was hit by the Boxing Day Tsunami ). I offer special discounts to anyone who has been adopted or has adopted a child. We understand many of the problems you may have and will face in the future.

In 2011 , I retired to Phuket and am now " living the dream " very happily on this beautiful island, playing golf, swimming or sailing most days . I am hoping that my daughters will want to come and live with me when they have completed their schooling in England.

Brian Phillips purchased this villa in 2006

Why Brian Phillips chose Phuket

Phuket is a fabulous holiday destination, especially the South West Corner with fabulous beaches and hilly countryside.

Great restaurants, great golf courses, wonderful people - what more could you want ?

Warning - don't choose the East Coast of Phuket for a beach holiday - it is much cheaper because the beach on the Eastern side of Phuket is virtually unusable (shallow mud).

What makes this villa unique

The kids love the pool, the beach and the staff - who pamper them outrageously! The beaches on the West Coast of Phuket are simply the best - Kata Beach is a wonderful year round beach - swimming and snorkelling from November to April , and excellent surf May to October.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Couldn't have asked for anything more. The villa is in an excellent location and is exceptional, but what really makes it is the staff! The best food we had during our stay and extremely helpful. We had a great time and will most likely return!

My Response

My staff and I are always delighted when guests enjoy one of our villas to the full. Our chefs love it when guests enjoy their cooking (which they always do) . We hope to see Dr. Nick and his friends in the future. Best wishes Brian Phillips (Owner).

Villa Jasmine Experience

  • 5 of 5

This property was well worth staying at rather then a hotel. The privacy and comfort level was above and beyond expectations. The house is well kept and the staff was readily available. Everything could be done right from the house from booking daily excursions to attractions, going to the various beaches or near by towns. If we didn't feel like the beach we had the private pool to relax in. The food that was prepared for us, was literally better than the restaurants. I would definitely stay here again without hesitation. Nothing but high marks... Best regards and thanks for an enjoyable holiday.

Another perfect stay at Villa Jasmine!

  • 5 of 5

My stay at Villa Jasmine was my third in the past five years. Once again, everything was outstanding! I can't wait to return again.

You are in great hands with the staff of the villa. They are extremely caring and make sure every possible need and desire you have is addressed. The Thai meals they cooked were amazing! Also, on our final evening, they arranged a great western style dinner for us - grilling steaks, lobster and prawns poolside. We were consistently well stocked with beverages of our choice - wine, beer, vodka, whiskey and mixers...whatever we asked for, they obtained it and only charged us cost as promised.

The activities were also spectacular. The masseuses that Noi arranged to visit the home were very skilled and charged only a fraction of what massages cost in other countries. The nearby golf courses were in amazing shape and the layouts are fun to play. The location of the villa is perfect to be in a central location and have access to activities all over Phuket. The Kata beach area is very nearby - a nice walk or a short ride (and there's a taxi stand just down the street from the villa).

The layout of the villa is perfect for a large group given the open living / kitchen /dining area upstairs near the pool and all bedrooms downstairs (each with their own bathroom). A strong and consistent wifi signal can be obtained throughout the entire upstairs and pool area - even with multiple people using devices. Villa Jasmine is absolute paradise!

Paradise perfection

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 8 stayed at villa jasmin for a week and we were all extremely impressed. The villa itself is spacious and having our own private pool overlooking the ocean was magnificent. Noi, much and tree were amazing, they did everything from cooking fantastic breakfasts, lunches and dinners, to booking all taxis and tours, to making sure the esky was full of song has a d soft drinks. We didn't have to lift a finger. We will most definitely be back!!!

Outstanding

  • 5 of 5

beautifully presented Villa and always clean and tidy. Lots of space for 4 large teenagers and parents. The infinity pool was absolutely divine and always clean, just what you need after a day out while your waiting for your dinner to be cooked by the lovely inhouse cook. We availed ourselves of their offer to shop and cook for us and were never disappointed by the quality ,service or unobtrusive manner of the wonderfull staff. The whole family had a wonderfully relaxing stay at this beautiful villa. Getting around for the 6 of us was easy , a mininbus was called for us at any time by the friendly and helpful staff at the villa. It was a shame to leave, but the kids were sending us broke with their shopping!
