About Jivana Beach Villas

Natai Beach, dubbed “Thailand’s answer to The Hamptons”, lies a short drive north of Phuket in the sleepy province of Phang Nga on Thailand’s west coast. Apart from offering a sublimely peaceful alternative to the frenetic resorts of Phuket, this area also provides the most direct route (from Khao Lak) to the spectacular Similan Islands, an hour and a half’s boat ride away across the Andaman Sea.

Right on the sands of this stunning 10-kilometre-long beach is the Jivana Beach Villas, whose three luxury rental villas provide an idyllic seaside escape. Each palatial villa (two with six bedrooms and one with seven bedrooms) includes four individual, contemporary Thai style pavilions interspersed with emerald courtyards and lush gardens. Deep verandas and corridors accented with hand carved wooden reliefs from northern Thailand, link them together. Shared living spaces are equipped with all of the modern features one would expect from a five-star villa retreat. Lavish furnishings, rich teakwood features and whitewashed walls are tastefully balanced to evoke a sense of utter tranquility, while ensuite bathrooms feature rain showers, private gardens and deep soaking tubs for rejuvenation.

A stylish 25-metre black-tiled infinity pool lies at the centre of each villa’s expansive lawn. Shaded by tall coconut palms, these well-manicured outdoor spaces include two salas for alfresco dining and sunset relaxation, and are perfect for weddings and events. The sand begins where the grass ends with the endless azure of the Andaman Sea beyond.

Villa Shanti, Villa Ananda and Villa Jia come with a welcoming team of staff who embody warm, genuine Thai hospitality. Their service is unparalleled and can be tailored to suit the specific needs of guests. An array of Western and Thai style dishes are prepared daily by a skilled resident chef; groundskeepers and villa attendants tidy and maintain, while a courteous villa manager oversees the team and property. The grounds of Jivana Beach Villas are kept secure and private by 24-hour security working in shifts, while a concierge assists with excursions and transport.
