My two little girls love this villa so much, especially the lovely team. You guys are nice, kind and taking care of us so carefully. We are very lucky to spend those days with you. We do not need to think about any thing (like what toe eat, go out for something interesting). Just wake up, have breakfast, play/stay in the sofa to read books, have lunch, massage, swimming, sunset on the beach, dinner, another lay in the sofa and go to bed. We have a total relaxation vacation. Hope we will arrange another trip here. We love the food so so much!!!”

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 sublime and peaceful alternative to 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 lie Jivana Beach Villas, whose four luxurious villas provide an idyllic seaside escape. Each palatial villa (three with six bedrooms and one with seven) features several 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 Hollywood-chic glamour, while ensuite bathrooms feature rain showers, private gardens and deep soaking tubs to add a tropical touch.
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.
Villas Shanti, Ananda, Jia and Sundara 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.
