About Tom Jones

I live permanently in Phuket and am available, together with my resident Villa Manager, to make sure your stay at my villa is as enjoyable and memorable as possible. I'm happy to give advice and suggestions for things to do and see, places to eat and where to go shopping. I moved to Thailand in 2007 after living in Scotland for most of my life.

Tom Jones purchased this villa in 2006

Why Tom Jones chose Choeng Thale

The Surin Beach area is probably the best area to live and holiday in Phuket. Apart from the luxury villa accommodation you can enjoy, there are some great beaches only 2 minutes drive away. Surin Beach is the nearest and on Bang Tao beach you'll find a selection of restaurants and some very chic beach clubs where you can relax, drink and dine until late at night.

Discounts given for stays longer than 1 week.

Beautiful villa with a great staff

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 8 stayed at the villa from 6/29/18-7/3/18. The villa was perfect. The villa manager, Pui, was a great asset for booking tours and transportation. The two housekeepers worked behind the scenes very efficiently. We booked the Thai chef for one evening and everything he prepared was delicious. There are good coffee shops and restaurants nearby as well. Look forward to coming back someday!

Better than I could have imagined!

  • 5 of 5

Booking a house in another country is always a bit stressful, but the process with this property was so easy! The owner Tom met us when we arrived and gave us a personal tour of the house and all the amenities (which are too numerous to list here). He also accommodated our early arrival and worked with us on a later check out time as well. The house itself is breathtaking. It is impossible to put it into words, but just know that the pictures do not do it justice. The house was spotlessly clean and is cleaned constantly by the housekeeping staff. The head housekeeper helped us with literally everything; booking transportation, tours and a private chef cooked dinner for 10 which was AMAZING! I travel for a living and I cannot say enough good things about this property and this owner and staff. Tom even coordinated with our group long distance to pull off a very special birthday celebration. It was truly the easiest, most carefree and relaxing experience I have had on a holiday. I cannot recommend this property enough, I just wish I could have stayed longer!!!

Multilevel luxury villa

  • 5 of 5

The 5 bedroom villa is very well maintained, with good working AC, spacious bathrooms and good equipped kitchen. The sitting area, near the nice swimming pool, offers shaded place for dinning, with the view on the Andaman Sea. Because of quite high location, the house is benefited be the fresh breeze. The way to Surin Beach takes around 12-15 minutes, but along the road with heavy traffic. Return walk is bit gruelling, climbing the last 200 meters sharply upwards. The option is to take a taxi or tuk-tuk and go to the more idyllic Bang Tao Beach.

The staff consists of two ladies, taking care for housekeeping and Ms Pui - manager of this property. She was very helpful in arranging the transportation and organizing the necessary shopping. The chef, preparing the dinner, supported by the other person, could be ordered with the extra charge. We have used this option twice and generally were satisfied. But better is to relay on the Tom`s recommendations for dinning outside and visit the excellent Thai restaurants in the surrounding villages and towns. For me the irritating drawback in the villa was the weak internet in the bedrooms. The only places with acceptable speed were sitting - and TV - rooms.

Beautiful, spacious and luxurious villa.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here in September 2017 and didn't want to leave! The villa is in a beautiful, quiet location with amazing views of the sea. We loved swimming in the infinity edge pool. You really should take the opportunity to book the in-house chef at least once during your visit. We had some excellent meals made for us. The beach is very close, as are local shops for groceries, as well as restaurants and boutiques. We would definitely book to stay at Villa IDEAL again.

The perfect place for the perfect holiday

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here for a family holiday/birthday celebration with family members of all ages and every one of us had an amazing time! The villa itself is stunning with every room as luxurious as the last and around every corner another exciting space to discover. The pool area and view are breath taking, it is perfect for all the family to enjoy. Nothing was too much trouble for Tom and his team, from arranging transfers, birthday cakes, recommending places to eat/visit as well as the fantastic hired in chef, whose meals were so delicious we had to force ourselves to leave the villa to eat out! The villa manager and on site cleaner were excellent and really made it easy for the whole family to relax and enjoy themselves!

We will definitely be coming back and would recommend to anyone visiting the area. The absolute perfect place for a perfect holiday!

A perfect villa for a beautiful island

  • 5 of 5

The location is wonderful with beautiful views across the sea. The owners are gracious, providing everything you need to have a great time. The villa is stunning, being perfectly decorated and kept really up to date in terms of repair where many properties in Asia don't look like the ads. The icing on the cake is being able to have a chef come in and cook a wonderful array of food including authentic Thai when you want. What a pleasure!

Surin Beach
Car: recommended

The main attractions in the immediate vicinity are the long golden sandy beaches at Surin, Bang Tao and Laem Singh. Surin beach is well served with restaurants and cafes offering a variety of cuisines at various price ranges. In the evening, the beach clubs on Bang Tao beach are a popular spot to watch the sun set, enjoy a cocktail and dine. Bang Tao beach is many kilometres long and you'll find stretches that are well served with restaurants and cafes and other more deserted stretches where you can feel you have the beach almost to yourself.

For dining out a night, you're spoilt for choice with dozens of high quality restaurants either only 5 minutes away on or near the beach or, at most, a 15 minute drive to Cherngtalay.
