No matter where you’re holidaying at, having a private pool in your compound is a perk that no vacationer would refuse. But what about having two swimming pools to call your own? Or an infinity pool that overlooks the Andaman Sea? You’ll enjoy these amenities (and more) at our favourite private pool villas in Phuket:
Villa Phala 3, Patong
Occupying a prime location at the top of the L’Orchidée Residence villa complex, Villa Phala 3 serves as an excellent vantage point to take in views out to the Andaman Sea and coasts of Phuket. Uninterrupted vistas can be enjoyed from the indoor-outdoor living spaces and terrace, but our favourite spot to take in the views is the sun-drenched pool deck, featuring an infinity pool framed by loungers.
Villa Aranda, Patong
The best attractions in town are just a skip away from Villa Aranda; you’re only a five-minute ride away from bustling Patong, with its energetic vibes, stylish beachfront restaurants and vibrant nightlight venues. But whatever you do, make sure you’re back at home to take in the magnificent sunset show each evening. And the best way to catch this picture-perfect show is right by the infinity pool, with icy cocktails and tasty noshes in hand.
Baan Lom Talay, Kamala
Rest and relaxation come easy at this luxurious hilltop residence. Laze the hot, sunny afternoons away with refreshing dips in the swimming pool, lounge languorously in the indoor-outdoor living area (complete with elegant teak wood furnishings and sea views) or enjoy a long, leisurely soak in the private jacuzzi tub in the VIP suite.
Villa Lomchoy, Kamala
The perks are plentiful at Villa Lomchoy; this enviable holiday home boasts panoramic vistas out to the Andaman Sea, a sparkling infinity pool and generously proportioned living spaces. The addition of touches like glass bi-folding doors further enhance the common spaces, allowing sunlight to fill up the interiors and drawing one’s eyes out towards the gorgeous coastal scenery.
And when you’re in the mood for hitting the coasts, a swathe of private beach is just a stone’s throw away from your doorstep!

Amenities, like a game room featuring with a billiard table, dart board, foosball table and bar completes this well-equipped vacation home.
The Beach House, Ao Yon Bay
Enjoy the perks that come with staying in an oceanfront abode like The Beach House: direct beach access, unparalleled ocean views and a compound cooled by sea breezes through the day. While we love taking in the coastal scenery from the turquoise pool, there are multiple ways of enjoying the views in this fully-equipped home – from the well-manicured lawn outfitted with sun loungers, to the airy living area and cosy bedrooms.
Villa Rak Tawan, Surin
Villa Rak Tawan’s hilltop location means that you get unobstructed views of the Andaman Sea and Surin’s scenic coastline. The Thai-style roofs, as well as a private collection of oriental antiques and paintings, remind you that you’re holidaying in an exotic Asian destination, while the modern furnishing and fixtures bring a contemporary Western flair to the interiors.
Cosy up on the plump and pillowy couches, continue your daily fitness routine with a workout in the gym, or laze languorously in the terrace during your days here. Whatever you do, don’t forget about the villa’s spacious swimming pool – the perfect spot to cool down from the heat of the tropics.
Villa Sereniti, Surin
Villa Sereniti has all the right boxes ticked. Stunning ocean views, plush living spaces with vaulted ceilings, beautiful wood fixtures and a classic Thai design characterises this decadent holiday home. But wait – we have not gotten to the best part about this Surin villa. A glistening infinity pool takes center stage in the outdoor compounds of the villa, offering guests with a spot to take a refreshing dip and feel at one with the sea.
Phuket Oasis Villa, Bangtao
Large travelling parties will find a home away from home at the seven-bedroom Phuket Oasis Villa. This expansive vacation rental offers the right mix of communal areas and private living spaces; each bedroom is housed in a standalone pavilion for ultimate privacy, while the common spaces – from a pool lined with lava stones and an outdoor deck fitted with daybeds and al fresco dining area, to the indoor-outdoor living pavilion complete with billiard table – encourage vacationers to mix and mingle.
Villa Lakewood Hills v14, Bangtao
At Villa Lakewood Hills V14, you’ll have not one, but two private pools to call your own. Start your day with a few laps in the 15 metre pool, or cool down from the heat by taking a dip in the plunge pool (a child-friendly spot for the little ones to make a splash!).
After a swim, relax upon the loungers, or under the shade of the breezy outdoor pool sala. A variety of amenities, such as the entertainment room, study, clubhouse and floodlit tennis courts ensure that you’ll have no end of activities to take your pick from during your vacation in Bang Tao.

Villa Sawarin, Cape Yamu
Luxurious Villa Sawarin promises to impress even the most discerning of travellers. You’ll easily believe that life is just like a dream during your stay here.

If staying in is what you prefer, there’s much to see and do too. The only problem is that you’ll find it a challenge deciding on a specific activity- will it be enjoying a massage in the spa room, relaxing in the boathouse, playing games in the entertainment room or taking a dip in the 24-metre infinity pool?
