Phuket is where luxury villas were first defined in all their spectacular glory in Thailand and some of today’s villa rentals are extraordinary. At the pinnacle of villa sophistication is Villa Amarapura, a 7-bedroom wonder on Phuket’s eastern peninsular of Cape Yamu. Back in the day, those wanting a holiday lifestyle away from cookie-cutter rooms in hotels and resorts were excited to be offered the chance to live in a luxury home away from home. Here they could enjoy a different and better vacation lifestyle in some of the most wonderful locations.
Over the years, villa luxury has blossomed to mean more than simply a type of holiday and turned into an incredible experience rich with stunning panoramic views, architectural beauty, and of course, the must-have infinity pool. With two glorious swimming pools on different levels, Villa Amarapura pushes the definition of what Phuket luxury villas are even further, raising the bar and expanding notions of what a villa holiday can offer.
Standout features lift luxury to a whole new level to create the perfect balance of space, light, ambiance, and comfort. An example of how the beautifully designed Villa Amarapura achieves this is its unique living room atrium with its soaringly high ceilings and wooden gabled roof. The interior and outdoors are grandly, and seamlessly, blended to create a theatrical piece; an artistic statement of grand living where glamorous chandeliers become clusters of stars, shining out against the dark exterior.
Of course, location makes all the difference and nowhere more so than in Phuket where the difference between some areas is as clear as night and day. Villa Amarapura hits the serenity spot and proves that even in popular Phuket a peaceful paradise can be found. This part of Phuket is in an enviable position, looking out to the impressive islands in Phang Nga Bay.
Opulent design and achingly beautiful vistas perfectly framed, when well thought out, can create a villa masterpiece and Villa Amarapura is a villa holiday work of art. The white cube standalone villa with one bedroom, found down a stepping stone path across the expansive lawns, is a superb private retreat within the grandness of the grounds.
It is clear that any luxury villa promises relaxed comfort and a fantastic lifestyle to truly unwind on holiday. After all, the whole idea of a vacation is to chillout and nourish your well-being, whether through doing nothing in splendor or indulging in hedonistic extravagance. Against this backdrop of luxury the extra details create a villa’s identity. The character of Villa Amarapura is perhaps a surprisingly sporty, fun, and entertaining too, with a cinema room, fully equipped gym, and games room which includes a golf simulation game and pool table.
The outdoor space of any luxury villa is an important part of the vacation experience too, rather than simply a pretty setting. Villa lifestyles flow from outdoors to in and vice versa. At Villa Amarapura you can also practice your golf on the putting green as well as shoot some hoops on the basketball court, whilst there is also tennis available within the villa’s gated community. Meanwhile, right by the beach kayaks and water-splashing fun beckon.
