Overview

Bangtao beach Villa Rental Photos and Description

This is luxury: private villa, own pool, close beach, spa, tropical garden.

This luxurious three bedroom villa, built to impeccable European standards, is located at The Residence Resort & Spa. It is located just 20 minutes from the airport and a two minute stroll from unspoiled BangTao Beach which many consider the best as well as the longest beach in Phuket.

The villa is set in a lush tropical walled-garden in a very private resort setting. It includes your very own large private swimming pool, upper level sala, an indoor Jacuzzi, A/C, surround sound music, a touch pad central control entertainment system, a safe, a phone and wi-fi..

The interior finish can only be described as pure luxury and no expense has been spared on the quality fixtures and fittings. The living room has direct garden, deck and pool access. The upper level sala is ideal for BBQ, outdoor dining and entertaining.

The villa is professionally managed with maid service and room service available. The resort offers instant access to a modern gym, spa and a private beach resort.

Pampered Luxury in Quiet Seclusion: The Residence is a World Class, 5 Star resort with on-site spa, gym and restaurant. The Villa itself is tucked-away behind a beautiful walled-garden with palms, exotic tropical plants and a step-over lotus pool, providing complete seclusion and privacy. The stunning living area opens up to the pool as the glass walls slide away. The bedrooms are beautifully equipped in traditional Thai style but with a modern and very artistic feel. The bathrooms are elegant with a jacuzzi and both indoor and outdoor showers. You'll find hi-fi in every room, flat screen TV with cable, wireless internet and a third bedroom that can be used as an office if needed.The flat roof incorporates a BBQ and a sala for outdoor entertaining. Room service is available from early 'til late.

Bang Tao: the best beach in Phuket: Bang Tao is truly breath-taking, with some 8 kilometers of uncrowded white sand beach lined with palm trees. The water is crystal clear and warm enough to swim at all times of the year.

Just imagine yourself taking the Residence jitney down to the beach, spending the morning perfecting your tan and slipping in and out of the sea. Freshly caught sea food with a mango smoothie for lunch and you begin to understand why this resort is home-away-from-home to the rich and famous.

Very close by you'll find all the comforts of home. There's a Tesco supermarket at 500 meters for all your self-catering needs. Close by you'll find major hotels, restaurants, antique shops, spas and Thai massage. Or you could ride a horse on the beach, go para-sailing or jet skiing at nearby Surin beach, the kids will love Phuket FantaSea and the elephant rides while Mum can indulge in a spa treatment.

Tired of all this relaxation? The legendary night life of Patong is just a short drive away.

When to come: The best time to visit Phuket is during the cool NE monsoon season, from November through March when the cool breezes keep things comfortable. The average temperature is around 75F to 89F (24C to 32C).

The hottest time is from April through May with temperatures ranging from 80F to 95F (27C to 36C). There are frequent short heavy thundery showers, offering welcome relief from the temperature and humidity. The Thai New Year occurs (Songkran Festival) on April 13th and everyone sprinkles (or throws) cool water on each other.

Locals enjoy June, July and August since the weather is usually fine and our favourite haunts remain uncrowded. The usual pattern is brief but heavy showers, with plenty of sunshine between the rain. Temperatures range between 70F and 90F (20C to 33C).

About Bob Godfrey

I'm an Englishman living in San Francisco. I currently run safaris in Africa. Love being outdoors so am an avid skier, hiker, biker and traveler. Used to teach Economics and Political Science, then was a business owner doing hi-tech design & marketing in Silicon Valley.

Bob Godfrey purchased this villa in 2004

Why Bob Godfrey chose Bangtao beach

Well I just love Phuket and this villa. Phuket because the Thai people are so great, the food is amazing and the beaches are to die for. This villa because it is totally private behind a high-wall with a beautiful garden and my very own swimming pool. What's not to like?

What makes this villa unique

The thing that makes this villa so great is partly that it is in and of itself beautiful, the large swimming pool is good for lounging and lap swimming, the garden is gorgeous and I love the flat roof with outdoor sala which is great for a BBQ. The fact that it is located in The Residence Resort means there is a spa and restaurant on site. My Own Private Paradise.

Pure Luxury

  • 5 of 5
We would like to thank Bob and the staff at the Residence for making our stay in Phuket so memorable and enjoyable. The villa is pure luxury, and we already miss the place. Traveling with our two children (1 and 6 years old) we could not have found a better place. Housekeeping daily as well as pool and garden maintenance every other day kept the villa looking stunning. Easy access to the beautiful and quiet part of Bang Tao beach, which is easily reached by complimentary shuttle bus from the villa. Surely we’ll recommend the villa to anyone who wishes to visit Phuket. Hopefully we’ll return in the very near future! Thanks again, Bob.

Perfect for us. 5 star accomodation and facilities

  • 5 of 5
Sorry for massive delay in posting.

There is no way does the excellent description and photographs on the site do this superb property justice,
We were treated and felt like royalty throughout our stay the staff are wonderful and second to none.
Phuket was extremely quite at the time we visited and the local restaurants mostly empty. Despite this there was one excellent Italian/Pizza/Thai restaurant called the Capri which was busy every night.
If you are wise enough to stay in this accommodation I thoroughly recommend this homely family run establishment.
We did have a car for the whole of our stay and I would personally recommend this. When we did not wish to drive we simply contacted the hire company and they supplied a driver for a fraction of the cost of a taxi.
I would not hesitate booking a return visit if we return to Phuket and can confirm that Bob, the owner, was a delight to deal with.

However, a major downside for us was that through the lack of tourists the beaches were not a pleasant place to be. The locals who understandably are trying to make a living, focus themselves on the available trade and this was at times overwhelming. Even when eating at beach restaurants the 'hawkers' were plaguing us and not dissuaded, therefore encouraged, by the owners. This is something which we could not suffer and so our visits to the beaches were limited.

A great choice

  • 5 of 5
A well presented and extremely comfortable villa which made for a perfect family holiday. The walled garden affords complete privacy and relaxation for those who just want to chill out in comfort, and the crystal clear pool makes leaving the compound a bit of a wrench. The Sala on the roof offers pleasant views over the adjacent fields and enjoyed cooling breezes when we were there in mid August. A particular pleasure was the way the large windows of the living area could be pushed completely aside into the walls making it feel more like part of the garden, and the pool and outdoor lighting made it a real feature at night.

The fast Wi-Fi access made my grown-up kids very happy indeed, and kept me in touch when necessary - though somehow it never seemed that necessary.

Bang Tao beach (with a number of restaurants and bars) is only 10-15 minutes away on foot for those who prefer to feel sand between their toes, but there is a free shuttle service during the day if you are feeling a little too relaxed to walk. In the other direction Tesco is a short stroll for necessities, and opposite it the food stalls at the twice-weekly night market offer a tasty and inexpensive alternative to restaurants or home cooking back at the villa (why would you want to do that anyway with all the great local food around?).

The staff who look after the complex are friendly, well trained and very willing to help. They kept the villa spotless and inundated us with clean pool towels. They also regularly offered lifts if they saw us about to walk somewhere. Take a torch if you want to walk back at night, though. Not all the roads are lit. A car is not an absolute necessity - we did perfectly well without one, though I might have felt differently if it had been a hotter time of the year, or if I had wanted to move further away from that pool!

In summary, an excellent choice for a relaxed break which delighted my whole family and which I have already recommended to friends.

Exceeded All Expectations!!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in this splendid villa for a week of total bliss. It truly is close to everything, yet set back enough that we felt a luxurious sense of privacy. The home itself is simply breath-taking in its sophisticated design, from the hardwood floors, to the exquisitely appointed bathrooms, to the amazing lighting and modern furnishings which beautifully reflected its regional surroundings. The service from the staff was so very warm and courteous, we felt as if we had known them for years. Their turn down service each evening was wonderful. The villa was always kept in pristine condition for us and we found ourselves wishing we had planned to stay there longer. It was a very sad day when we had to leave our beautiful, private enclosed villa. I would recommend it to anyone and truly cannot wait until our next trip back!

The best place to stay on Phuket!

  • 5 of 5
Phuket is a hugely popular beach getaway for good reason. Although there are hordes of tourists at overcrowded Patong Beach, you can avoid them! There’s a great secret only a few kilometers north: the Bang Tao area. I’ve been to Phuket four times in the past two years and have stayed at this villa the last three of those times. I recommend it without hesitation, and here’s why:

-It’s private and luxurious. After a day’s activities, it’s great to come back to the villa’s private pool. Or, you can sit on the roof deck and enjoy the scenery. There’s a washer/dryer unit, and a full kitchen. The villa is spotless and well appointed. Bring your iPod, which you can plug into the villa’s stereo system. There are also a lot of cable channels available (not that you’ll spend much time watching TV.)

-It’s big. There are three bedrooms and two bathrooms, so there's plenty of room to bring friends or another couple. In fact, the villa ends up being a better deal than taking separate hotel rooms. The layout is open and well-designed, so you’ll never feel crowded. But even if you’re traveling alone, it’s absolutely a great value for the price.

-The location is prime. Bang Tao beach is beautiful and is as of yet relatively undeveloped. There’s a van service from the villa management to the beach, but you’ll want to have your own car anyway. (You can arrange to have a car delivered to your private garage.) In any case, it’s an easy two minute drive or a ten minute walk. There are a number of restaurants right on the beach, and compared to Patong or the beaches further south, Bang Tao is practically deserted. The villa is close to Surin, another great beach just a few minutes away.

-There’s a Tesco right at the top of the soi. This is a relatively new store and saves you from having to drive to the big Tesco in the center of the island. It’s fantastically convenient and you can stock up on drinks and snacks for your pool time.

Overall, this villa is a value for the price, perfectly located, luxurious, and well-maintained. Staying at this villa makes a good trip to Phuket great. I can’t wait to go back!

Do you like sunshine, miles of unspoiled beaches, palm trees, great food, friendly people, a different culture, legendary nightlife, great attractions and tons of interesting things to do? Well the Residence Resort & Spa is the place for you. Imagine living in a luxury villa right in the middle of all this exotic fun. Just 25 minutes from Phuket International and 2 minutes from the best beach on the island the resort is your home away from home. There is an amazing choice of restaurants in the neighbourhood, some at local prices and some to international standards. There are bars, supermarkets, bake shops and taxis all within a couple of minutes stroll from the resort. Patong is nightlife central and that is just a 20 minute drive away. There are a million things for the kids to do (http://www.phuket.com/activities/by-age.htm) and for Mum & Dad there is golf, spas, shopping, boat rides, scuba, parasailing, massage on the beach and even elephant riding. Sound like fun? Get over here!

Golf: Phuket is a dream come true for golfers. You can play on world class golf courses in Phuket with panoramic views of beautiful beaches. Here you can walk in the footsteps of Tiger Woods when he won the Johnnie Walker Classic at the Blue Canyon Country Club.

Other premium Phuket golf courses include: Mission Hills Golf Resort, Laguna Phuket Golf Club, Loch Palm Golf Club, Red Mountain Golf Club, Phuket Country Club, Thai Muang Beach Golf and Phunaka Golf Course.
