Set on the pristine sands of Natai Beach, within the exclusive Sava Beach Villas estate, this 6-bedroom beachfront haven is located less than half an hour's drive north of Phuket airport. Featuring a bright living room, family/TV room and glass-encased dining room, manicured rear and front lawns, a beachfront sala, barbecue area and a sun deck alongside the 25-metre pool, Villa Malee Sai offers a stylish tropical escape for families and makes a wonderful wedding venue. Five-star service is provided by a villa manager, a skilled chef and housekeeping staff, leaving guests free to relax and enjoy their stay. On the south-west coast of Phang Nga province, just over the bridge from Phuket, Natai Beach is a sleepy stretch of powder-soft white sand that has been shaken awake in recent years by those seeking a luxurious yet peaceful escape. Lining the 10-kilometre-long beach are some of Thailand’s most exclusive private villas and resorts, yet interspersed with these luxury hideaways are rubber plantations, coconut groves and water buffalo fields, giving Natai a distinctive blend of rugged rural landscapes and cutting-edge holiday homes that somehow coexist without imposing on one another. The beach itself is happily free of the beach chairs and braying vendors that blight so many sandy shorelines in the Phuket region, and visitors here might walk for hundreds of metres without seeing another soul. Kokkloy, about five kilometres away, is a small but bustling town with banks, local shops, markets and a mid-sized supermarket where provisions may be sourced. Those seeking nightlife excitement, shopping centres and a greater range of restaurants and activities will need to travel by car 20 to 40 kilometres south to Phuket.
