The Glasshouse Phuket
I'm a physician from the U.K but have been living in Thailand for more than 13 years, based in Bangkok.
Bradley purchased this Villa in 2010
Why Bradley chose Wichit
I fell in love with the Glasshouse as soon as I stepped foot inside and I hope you will too. It was designed by a top-rated architect as a family home with exquisite attention to detail. The villa is nestled into the jungle on a small peninsula in the south part of Phuket. It's away from the hustle and bustle of the West coast but still convenient for many of the attractions around the island. The internal living space connects seamlessly with the outside area which in turn is in harmony with the surroundings. I'm proud to have been awarded Trip Advisor's Certificate of Excellence in 2018 and again in 2019 for the Glasshouse

I had such a good time here, celebrating an important milestone ; my transition from Season 5 to Season 6. Friends and family came to stay in this gorgeous, spacious and airy villa. I had the master bedroom, which was bigger than my first apartment back home. Every day I woke up and swam in the pool, admiring the stunning view over the bay.
The kitchen and dining facilities are excellent, and we cooked on a couple of days, but we were able to book a chef service, which produced three amazing meals, particularly the lunch on the day of my birthday, which was beyond delicious.
The villa is quite well situated - away from the road but within easy walking of a pharmacy, massage outlets and restaurants. The local 7-11 is close and open 24 hours.
If you want to get to Patpong and the nightlife there, it is quite a long drive, and you need to hire a van, but if you're with a group or family like I was, then the Glasshouse and the local area has everything you need for a wonderful stay.
A Piece of Paradise in Phuket
We didn’t think it was possible, but our return trip to the Glasshouse after 8 years was even better than before! The area has more shops and restaurants within a few minutes walk so you get the best of both worlds now - a secluded oasis to relax and watch the spectacular sunsets from the pool and interesting places to explore when you go out.
All the attention to detail - from the check-in to recommendations for food, local markets to explore, and excursions around the island - made the entire trip feel very personalised for our special birthday celebration. We even had a private chef for a couple of nights who cooked in the outdoor kitchen and made some delicious local Thai dishes that we are still savouring!
We were there during the low season, so expect a few tropical thunderstorms (a welcome relief from the heat and humidity). You’ll still get gorgeous weather most of the time. And no matter what time of year you go the Glasshouse is a great value with 6 en suite rooms (get ready to fight for the master BR!) and a private beach to walk along.
The Glasshouse is a great place to stay if you want to avoid the touristy and tacky parts of the island. Best in Phuket!
The villa is located on Panwa Cape with lush rainforest / jungle in the back, a stunning view of the bay and eastern coastline of Phuket with the crown jewel being a view of the Big Bhudda statue. It is walking distance away from two separate beaches - Ao Yon (east) and Khao Khad (west). We spent a lot of time on Khao Khad, taking morning walks, though there is little room to walk on the beach during high tide. Personally, it made the walk more fun. There are massage parlors, restaurants, scooter rentals, cafes and even a 7-11 within walking distance. The only negative would be if you are interested in Patong Beach area or Phuket Town there is a drive associated with either location. Patong Beach being 30-40 minutes away and Phuket Town being 20-30 minutes away. The area of the villa is quiet and gives a very laid back feel to it.
Our experience with the villa started when we booked the villa. Bradley, the owner of the villa, was extremely helpfully in figuring out the ins and outs of the area as well as working with the manager and chef in Phuket. We were a party of 15 people (10 Adults and 5 Teenagers) and were going to stay at the villa for 7 nights. We had arranged a rental bus (Toyota Commuter) to ferry us around for the week. There was ample parking space for it in the villa. We arrived quite early at the villa and had been given permission to check-in early by Bradley.
The villa is gorgeously decorated. Each room is stunning in it’s own right and taken together is amazing. The piece de resistance however is the patio and pool area which gave the stunning views mentioned above. We ended up spending a lot of time there. The teenagers enjoyed having their own room, wifi, the ping-pong table upstairs and of course the pool. They ended up using the gazebo more than the adults in the party as the speakers were on Apple Play.
We had arranged for the first days two meals to be created by the chef. We loved his preparations of Italian food we had for lunch and of course the Thai food for dinner was spectacular especially considering our whole party was vegetarian. The only reason we didn’t repeat the chef was that we planned to be out and about in the evenings.
Really, all you can say about the Glasshouse in Phuket is Absolutely Amazing. From the service by Bradley (the owner) to the manager (Khun Pond) to the chef they provided, to the villa itself - it was in the lap of luxury.
Our experience at the Glasshouse was absolutely amazing!!!!!! If you are looking for the perfect place to stay in Phuket that is great for spending time with family or friends look no further. The Villa itself is stunning, great views in a superb setting. From the Villa there is a perfect view of the "Big Budda" on the mountain top from the poolside. The Villa is a home away from home with everything you need. All staff went above and beyond to assure that our stay was as comfortable as possible. Let's start with Khun Pond, the house manager. She is seriously one of the sweetest women you would ever meet. Very polite, professional and solution minded although we really didnt encounter any issues whatsoever.
Khun Man the driver is the absolute best, very professional, punctual, great personality. The price for transportation for our party of 9 was reasonable. For one flat rate for the day you can do a tour on a budget which works out to be more budget friendly than paying a tour company. His recommendations were great being that we didnt know much about Phuket. He was also a safe driver which is important. We also opt to book with the tour company next to 7 Eleven with Mr. Bao who offered great rates with reputable tour companies for activities much further away from the Villa.
The Chef referred by Mr. Bradley was excellent, the food was amazing and worth every penny. If you have a large party its worth hiring the Chef, he will do all the shopping, food prep, set up and clean up.
I could go on and on of how amazing our overall experience was, but you have to experience it for yourself, but I tell you one thing, you will not regret it. We look forward to visiting again soon. Thank you Bradley his staff for providing excellent service to the max. Till we meet again.
Amazing and Everything we hoped for
The property was amazing and lived up to the description in every way. The chef, Nui, we hired through Bradly was fantastic and produced the BEST Thai food any of us have ever tasted. It was such a bonus not to worry about shopping, cooking and washing up. Bradly was easy to communucate with right from the very beginning, he was very prompt in replying and helpful in providing information. The villa manager was also extremely responsive to any request or query we had. It all made for being a fantastic holiday and it exceeded our expectations for a family reunion.
The villa is located between Ao Yon and Khao Khad beaches in the Cape Panwa area; probably the most exclusive part of Phuket. Away from the crowds in Patong and the other West Coast beach resorts, Ao Yon is in an idyllic setting with two unspoiled beaches approximately 100-200m of the Glasshouse. Both beaches are sheltered and don't have the high waves and rip tides that limit swimming along the west coast of Phuket.
Water-based activities such as sailing, SCUBA diving, snorkelling, canoeing and day trips are all available from Ao Yon beach.
We have a wide range of eating and drinking options within a short walk of the villa. Serving Western and Thai food, many of these have stunning beachside settings and range from low cost, local style bar/restaurants to more upscale eateries. There are numerous more restaurants within a 5-7 minute drive of the villa and it's easy to get a taxi to take you there and back.
There's a 7-11 convenience store located just 30m from the villa where you can stock up on drinks, snacks or anything else you may need. A large supermarket and fresh produce market are each 5 minutes from the villa.
Phuket Central is 15-20 minutes drive away with shopping centers (Tesco Lotus, Central Festival and Big C), countless restaurants, Phuket night market, a multiplex cinema, gym and other amenities. There are many more restaurants and street hawker food stalls within a 5-10 minute drive of the villa.
Phuket is also famous for it's numerous beaches, nightlife, golf courses, island hopping, cabaret shows, elephant sanctuaries etc, all of which are within 15-45 minutes of the villa.
Other nearby activities include Phuket aquarium, Ao Yon waterfall and Tarzan activity.
