Location and Transfers
Amanpuri’s Aman Villas are set apart from the main resort and occupy the property’s private headland, affording breathtaking views of the Andaman Sea. Most enjoy ocean-front settings and all are private and secluded, yet within easy reach of the resort’s facilities and white-sand beach.
Amanpuri and the Villas are situated on the west of Phuket island, which is connected to Thailand’s Phang Nga province by a motor bridge in the north, the island is surrounded by the azure Andaman Sea, which joins the Indian Ocean to the south. Complimentary private limousine transfers to and from Phuket Airport are offered to guests, and the 17-kilometre drive to Amanpuri takes 25 minutes.
The interiors of each villa are finished with carefully selected Thai furnishings, art and antiques, subtly reflecting the aesthetic of the resort itself, but also of the villa’s owner. The design focus is on individualism with hand-picked pieces adding to an eclectic style mix that forms a cohesive and pleasing whole. The living space of each villa is particularly generous – up to 115 square metres, with 50-square metre bedrooms and 65-square metre dining pavilions with sundecks.
Bathrooms are designed to be spacious with sunken bathtubs and separate dressing areas. Most villas also offer outdoor bathing facilities, whether a courtyard bathtub or an outdoor shower.
It is not only the exceptional privacy, service and aesthetics of the villas that appeal to owners and guests, it is also their immediate location – adjacent to Amanpuri. While guests can enjoy every meal within their villa, either in the dining sala, around the pool or on one of the villa’s numerous lounging terraces, electric buggies are on call at all times for getting about the resort. This means that within minutes, villa guests can be dining in a number of different restaurants, ensconced in the library or working out in the two-storey gym. The options are endless resulting in the simple fact that there is very little need to leave the property – unless for a round of golf or an Amancruise bound for an uninhabited island or a pristine scuba diving site in the Andaman Sea. Five international-standard golf courses are located within 30-40 minutes of Amanpuri, while the resort’s yacht division is one of the largest resort-owned and operated fleets in Southeast Asia.
