With its cutting-edge design flair and glorious ocean views, Villa Amanzi Kamala is a fantasy holiday escape found in an exclusive estate near Kamala Beach. Characterised by clean lines and bright, minimalist interiors that invite the outside in, Amanzi Kamala forms a glimmering presence on the jungle-clad hillside.
This three-storey villa is a true visual masterpiece designed to celebrate – not outshine – its beautiful tropical surrounds. The hill’s steep rock face forms a natural wall on the two lower levels, while the chic living area fully opens to the pool and gardens to let the breezes flow through. The 15-metre pool extending toward the sea is the dazzling focal point of the villa, especially at sunset when sea, sky and pool are all set ablaze with crimson colours.
A touch-screen controlled sound system lets you set the mood with ease, while the family room downstairs has Apple TV, a pool table and other gadgets and games to keep guests of all ages entertained. The six bedrooms set on the top and bottom floors are each stylish retreats with private bathrooms and fabulous views, especially from the master suite with its floor-to-ceiling windows on three sides and an alfresco terrazzo bathtub. Guests who don’t manage to nab the coveted master suite can still enjoy a relaxing soak, in the sea-view jacuzzi next to the family room.
The modern guest kitchen, with indoor and outdoor dining areas, celebrates easy holiday living, with the talented villa chef’s Thai dishes adding a delicious “wow” factor to every meal. The chef is one of five staff attending to your needs in-house, with the villa manager also on hand to assist with any transport or tour bookings for those eager to discover Phuket’s sights and delights.
Hidden away in the tranquil Cape Amarin estate, Villa Amanzi Kamala offers complete privacy and a good vantage point for exploring the island, with Kamala and Patong beaches less than 15 minutes away by car and a wealth of leisure activities including golf courses, beach clubs and luxury spas within a half-hour’s drive. But with Amanzi’s sunsets and seductive allure, it might be tempting just to remain ensconced in the villa’s glamorous embrace for your entire holiday … if not forever.
