Facing beautiful Natai Beach, Villa Nandana is an elegant four-bedroom ocean-side retreat ideal for families and groups. Just 30 minutes from Phuket airport yet well away from the crowds, Nandana offers a 20-metre seafront pool, chic yet comfy living areas, spa, gym and a wide terrace for taking in the majestic ocean and sunset views. The poolside master suite also boasts lovely sea views, and all four bedrooms are lavishly appointed with ensuite bathrooms. Villa Nandana is staffed with a full-time housekeeper and chef. Awaiting discovery beyond the villa are the endless beaches, jungle parks and glittering bays of Phang Nga. Villa Nandana is set along the 10-kilometre length of Natai Beach, with just a few other luxury villas nearby. The villa's connected pavilion design on a half-acre of land allows for prime views of Natai's fabulous golden sands, sea, sky and sunsets. A short stroll north leads to a public pier, which is largely free of any activity except in the evenings when a handful of local families come to watch the sunset. The coastal road that runs parallel to the beach offers lush tropical scenery to enjoy on a bike ride or walk, with little car traffic and much of it lined by coconut palm plantations and green fields. For dining and cocktails beyond the villa, it's an easy wander down the sands to Akrya Beach Club, about a half-kilometre away, while the excellent restaurant at Aleenta resort is about two kilometres south of the villa.
