With its magical tropical setting on the shores of the Andaman Sea, the six-bedroom Villa Baan Taley Rom offers a blissful, rejuvenating escape ideal for families or groups just north of Phuket Island. Settle in for a holiday of peace, play and renewal at the luxurious beachfront Villa Baan Taley Rom, just steps away from the soft sands of Natai Beach. A sense of vitality and harmony flows through the villa, from its elegant arched entrance through its three peak-roofed pavilions to the acre of tropical gardens that fringe the sands. Enjoy unrestricted ocean views as the shimmering blues of the day melt away into fiery sunsets. Slicing a sparkling ribbon through this vivid aquamarine vista is the villa’s black-tiled 25-metre pool surrounded by ample lawn, coconut palms and terracing.
Complementing its idyllic tropical surrounds, Villa Baan Taley Rom brims with lavish comforts including elegant indoor and outdoor living space, a barbecue area and fully-equipped kitchen, as well as a private spa and gym pavilion with inspiring sea views to enjoy while restoring the body and mind. Each of the six bedrooms, including the extravagant poolside master suite, has its own bathroom and all but one offer panoramic sea views. The master suite shares a pavilion with a twin-bedded garden-view room, making an ideal setup for families. Every room is accented with the personal design touches of the owner, whose love of nature shines through with original paintings of pets, flora and fauna decorating the walls.
Gather for an elegant meal – expertly prepared by the villa’s private chef – in the bright central pavilion that rests between a reflecting pond and the pool terrace, or relax and dine alfresco by the pool or in the seafront sala. An attentive villa manager and housekeepers also ensure that no guest is left wanting. Beyond the villa, the Natai Beach area is a tropical wonderland with endless beaches, rural landscapes, waterfalls, hot springs and jungle-clad parks to explore, while the few resorts in the area, including Aleenta and Iniala, offer some excellent dining choices nearby.
