About Villa Ananda

Villa Ananda is one of four luxury private villas in the exclusive Jivana Beach Villas estate on Natai Beach, located just 25 minutes north of Phuket International Airport. Set against a lush tropical backdrop, the villa extends languidly over palm-strewn lawns to meet Natai’s pristine white sands, boasting 80 metres of absolute beachfront. Arriving at Villa Ananda gives one a remarkable sense of peace and tranquillity. The slow pace of life in this remote coastal region conjures up dreamy days spent relaxing under the sun, paired with romantic evenings bathed in moonbeams. Nestled within groves of tall coconut palms swaying to the sound of the waves, Villa Ananda is a lavish luxury retreat worlds away from its bustling southerly neighbour, Phuket.

Arranged over four elegant contemporary Thai-style pavilions, Villa Ananda’s indoor living spaces are opulently designed with rich teakwood floors and ceilings, fresh white linens and fabrics, and soothing lighting that reflects against whitewashed walls adorned with tasteful art. Each space can be opened with sliding glass doors to allow in fresh sea breezes, or enclosed and air-conditioned. A children’s bedroom with two sets of bunk beds and nanny’s quarters makes Villa Ananda especially suitable for families.

A professionally trained resident chef prepares a delicious range of Thai (and some western) dishes from the villa’s selection menu, allowing guests to savour the enticing flavours of Thai cuisine without having to leave the luxury of their private villa. Fresh, locally caught seafood is a specialty of the region and features in an array of mouth-watering Thai dishes and barbecue feasts.

Warm Thai hospitality makes a stay at Villa Ananda all the more memorable and relaxing. The knowledgeable on-site villa manager ensures guests’ needs are met and all runs smoothly at the villa, while the discreet attendants take care of housekeeping duties and provide service at mealtimes. 

Villa Layout

The double entrance doors of Villa Ananda open up onto a courtyard with granite water feature and soothing pond. Views from here are of the impressive, centrally located ‘Great Room’ and the sea beyond. To the left of the courtyard is the family room and TV lounge; to the right the kitchen and children’s quarters. Either side of the ‘Great Room’ are the two bedroom pavilions. Spread luxuriously across the front of the villa is a 25-metre pool and expansive lawn with relaxation and dining salas.

Living Areas

Indoor living

Villa Ananda’s elegant indoor living areas are perfectly designed for peaceful relaxation and dining. Commanding most of the attention is the centrally located ‘Great Room’ with comfortable sofas and ottomans providing plenty of lounging space. Adjacent is a long dining table that can seat up to fourteen guests. To the left of the ‘Great Room’ is a fully equipped kitchen. On the opposite side is a cosy family room with built-in cabinets housing an extensive library of books. The room is equipped with a 40-inch flat-screen satellite TV and sound system, and comes complete with lounge seating, a games table and small office space for those with business to attend to. Next to the family room is a guest bathroom.

Outdoor living

To the front of Villa Ananda is a stylish 25-metre infinity pool with shallow section for children, and an immense lawn that stretches to the sea. This beautiful beachfront garden is shaded by tall coconut trees and offers the perfect setting for outdoor games. Six poolside sun loungers line the pool deck, with a convenient guest changing room and shower nearby. Within the garden is a sunken dining sala with seats for eight and a beachside relaxation sala –  the ideal spot for in-house spa treatments. 

The breezy veranda in front of the ‘Great Room’ is furnished with cushioned rattan seating, and offers ample space for alfresco dining.
