The perfect secluded setting for a relaxed and private experience with family or friends. Nestled into the jungle and set in an area of 1,140sqm, this modern house provides some of the best sea-views available in Phuket. Located on a small peninsula, the villa is just a few minutes walk from two beautiful beaches; Ao Yon (east-facing) and Khao Khad (west-facing). Both beaches are in sheltered bays making them perfect for swimming all year round.
With six bedrooms, five en-suite bathrooms, guest WC, outside shower, Thai and western kitchens, large open plan living space, a private swimming pool, garden, carport and terrace, this high-end villa is spacious and can comfortably accommodate up to 20 guests (16 adults).
We can arrange whatever additional services you need to make your stay as indulgent as you'd like such as a chef to prepare your meals, maids to clean the villa, in-house massage, nanny/babysitter etc
The private and romantic setting with stunning views across the bay makes it a perfect location for a special event. We've hosted a number of weddings and other events at the Glasshouse and can help with any special arrangements.
The exterior of this architect designed home is set among landscaped gardens with a 10m infinity pool with jacuzzi as the centre piece. A Thai style sala is the perfect place to shelter from the sun or enjoy a glass of wine as the sun sets across the bay.
The interior of the home is equipped with high quality locally sourced furniture and fittings that will make your experience a luxurious one. Whilst in touch with the surrounding nature, the house is equipped with high-speed wireless internet throughout, multi-room sound system, 50' TV/home theatre.

Perfect for meditation, reading or a place for the kids to play.

The Cape Panwa area of Phuket is perhaps one of the island's best-kept secrets. The villa is situated on a small peninsula and close to two separate beaches, each just a few minutes walk away. Khao Khad is 1-2 minutes walk from the villa with nearly 1km stretch of beach. It’s undeveloped with just a few beach bars and restaurants. Most guests prefer Ao Yon beach which is 2-3 minutes walk and is also quiet and undeveloped. Both beaches are relatively sheltered and don’t have the high waves and rip tides that the west coast beaches experience.
All the essential amenities you need to make your stay convenient, comfortable and indulgent are just a short walk away. There’s a 7-11 convenience store just 30 metres from the Glasshouse and a Family Mart is about 250 metres away. Both are open 24 hours, have an ATM and a wide range of products including drinks, ice, snacks, confectionary, ice cream, toiletries and other essentials. They also sell alcohol during permitted hours (11am-2pm, 5pm-midnight).
If you want to explore further affield, it's easy to get around with local taxi vans (can generally accommodate 10-12 passengers)
The nearest outdoor food markets are in Borae, a nearby village. One is open all day and the other, slightly closer and more interesting, is open late afternoon to early evening. These sell fruit, vegetables, fresh fish, meat & cooked food as well as Thai desserts and other local products. The nearest supermarket is about 5 minutes away in Makham Bay.
Phuket attractions that are within 5-10 minutes of the Glasshouse include Phuket Aquarium, Ao Yon waterfall, Khao Khad Tower & Viewpoint and Tarzan Adventure. Water-based activities such as kayaking, sailing, snorkelling & diving start out from Ao Yon beach.
Phuket's other attractions are scattered across the island and most places you'd want to visit are within a 15-45 minute drive.
The big international style supermarkets in Phuket Central are about 15-20 minutes away. If there’s something very specific that you need, Central Food Hall at Floresta has a world-class range of imported products.
The villa is always offered with exclusive use of the house, pool and gardens.
We can accommodate up to 20 guests with a maximum of 16 adults. Children less than 2 yrs old don't count towards the maximum.
Discounts are available for groups of up to 8 guests; please enquire.
To encourage responsible use of aircon, we include an electricity allowance which is sufficient to run the house & pool with moderate use of aircon. Any electricity used over the allowance is charged at cost price +5%.
