Villa in Kata Beach, Phuket, Thailand - Right On The Andaman Sea

This amazing villa sits on the headland between Kata Beach and Kata Noi Beach. No expense has been spared from the Baan Saleah is a brand new 980 sq metre villa built to a high specification on the 100 sq metre infinity pool to the designer furniture. Baan Saleah offers total peace and serenity. The four chic bedrooms offer privacy from each other making it perfect for two families. The beds have been especially made for the villa offering the ultimate in comfort. A selection of pillows will aid a wonderful nights sleep. Each bathroom has its own hand crafted terrazzo bath and hand chipped marble basins, two have indoor/outdoor shower areas. 10 people can be accommodated with ease within this magnificent villa. The villa is also fully air conditioned in all the living and bedrooms. Guests will be treated to delicious Thai cuisine prepared by the live-in staff who also provide housekeeping services which includes laundry. The Sonos music system can hold up to 80,000 songs of all genres to suit every taste. There are Bose speakers throughout the villa so that you can enjoy music no matter where you are, from the Sala to the Living room. The Sala on the pool terrace has a huge swinging day bed so you can lay and look out at the glistening Andaman Sea. There are also two double recliners on the pool terrace allowing you to get that tan whilst listening to the waves crashing on the rocks. The staff can arrange for massage, hair braiding or a manicure by the pool. The 12 metre gabled ceiling sitting/dining room has doors that slide back on both sides making it feel outside whilst you are sitting inside. Eat at the ultimate dining table cut from one piece of wood, designer dining chairs complete the scene. Look through the glass panels on the top terrace at the waterfall whilst you eat at the hand crafted table which seats up to 14 for dinner with a view over to Pu Island and the Andaman Sea. Previous guest tell us that they have never eaten such good Thai food and want to return because they can't get it like that at home.....even when home is in Bangkok!!

About Adele Hetherington

Hello my husband and I are lovers of fine things - good food, wine and beautiful homes. Our hobby is building/renovating houses all over the world to a very high standard. We love gardening and there is an organic vegetable garden at the villa for you to use.

Why Adele Hetherington chose Phuket

We love the private headland and spent two years building the very special villa - much thought went into the layout and decor....we hope you will love it as much as we do.

What makes this villa unique

Baan Saleah Phuket is something very special - it took two years to complete with love and attention. The upkeep is important to us so we offer the best of the best at all times. Our staff are quiet and attentive.

“Tropical Heaven”

Reviewed July 10, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

Where to start !!! From our arrival at Baan Saleah we were treated like royalty the staff at baan saleah gave us a very warm welcome and instantly made us feel at home !! baan saleah is the epitome of luxury with breathtaking views of the Andaman Sea.Da and Dian the live in staff were absolutely fantastic very kind and helpful.There is a plethora of thai dishes they cook and the food was by far the best thai food i have ever eaten !!! Noi also helped us with anything we needed from private boat tours to phi phi island to shopping recommendations. Baan saleah is located near the town of kata which is a beautiful town and has a very relaxed beach vibe with great beach bars and restaurants. I cant recommend staying at Baan Saleah enough it will be a truly memorable vacation !!

“Absolutely amazing!”

Reviewed February 23, 2014 for a stay in February 2014

If you are looking to live like a king in a tropical country, in a palace where you eat the freshest and most delicious thai food then this is definitely the place to stay! Went with a massive group of friends and catered to all our needs. The staff were absolutely amazing and prepared and cooked our food better than what could have found anywhere else. Conveniently located between 2 beaches meant getting to the beach was no dramas if we could some how pull ourselves away from the amazing infinity pool. Once again don't pass up the pleasure of staying here you wont regret it.

“Best week of my life!”

Reviewed July 10, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

The Villa took my breath away when we first got there. We were greeted by all the staff on arrival. Da, Dian and Noi were all amazing and made my week. the villa was positioned perfectly in the fact that we could escape from the hustle and bustle but were only a couple of minutes away from the heart of it all as well.

The cooking and food was amazing all week and didn't have one dish that i didn't like and we tried many things on the menu.

To summarize it was the best week i have ever had and it was mainly due to the villa and staff. Highly recommended and would defiantly go back at the drop of a hat!

“World Class Service & Luxury”

Reviewed July 10, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

From the moment we arrived at Baan Saleah we were greeted with the hospitality of family and the service was 6 star throughout our entire stay.

The home itself is a tribute to the owner in terms of design and finish and having stayed at many luxury resorts, homes and hotel all over the world this home provided everything possible for a relaxing tropical holiday as well being great value for money.

The photos underwhelmed the property, it needs to be experienced and taken in to really appreciate all the modern luxuries the home has to offer.

The staff were as friendly, more organised and as helpful as any place I have had the pleasure of staying at.

Absolutely amazing - best holiday ever!!!

  • 5 of 5

Words cannot begin to describe this amazing villa and it's equally amazing staff. From the moment we were picked up by Paul from the airport we were treated like royalty. The food was amazing and there was so much variety. We ended up letting Ging choose for us and everything we had was delicious!! Best Thai food I have ever had.

We went with family and a friend for my 40th and it truly was the most amazing holiday experience. Noi, Noi, Ging and Heen made sure we had everything and anything we needed. They spoilt our two little boys rotten (1 1/2 and 4 years old) making them special meals and entertaining them.

My birthday cake that Noi organized was beautiful.

We are going to go back next year for my sisters birthday and then hopefully every year after that, just because it is the best and Noi, Noi, Ging and Heen are wonderful!

Tropical Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This is a truly exquisite villa and location and I experienced the best holiday I have ever had. Of the highest quality and no attention to detail spared, I felt as though I was living in the lap of luxury. Highest standards of maintenance, friendly and welcoming staff and fantastic cuisine, I could not have asked for anything more. Although within its own excellent location you can easily walk to the town and to nearby beautiful beaches and restaurants. Would highly recommend.
