Villa Suwani is located in Ban Pa Klok in the north east of the island, and area which is quickly becoming Phuket's eco-tourism corner. It is definitely a quieter side of Phuket, popular with hikers, cyclists, wildlife and nature enthusiasts. Yet is only 25mins from the airport and within easy reach of Phuket's most famous scenes and sights.
In the immediate vicinity are two of Phuket’s best wildlife projects: The Gibbon Rehabilitation Project and the award-winning Phuket Elephant Sanctuary. The former is within walking distance from the villa and an absolute delight to visit in the early morning when you can hear these animals make their amazing morning calls. One of Phuket’s nicest waterfalls is further along the same trail. And for a walk among the mangroves, drive 5 minutes to the local beach. At low tide you can walk deep into the sea on the lookout for crabs and other mud creatures.
There are some fantastic local restaurants in the immediate area too. From waterfront seafood places very popular with the locals to a stunning eco eatery overlooking a lake with jungle backdrop. More upmarket restaurants are available in the chic Cape Yamu, just 10 minutes’ drive away. And if home roasted coffee is your thing, Phuket’s best coffee café is just a short drive away.
Close-by activities range from hiking in the rainforest, setting sail from Ao Po marina, playing a Jack Nicklaus-designed ocean golf course, quad biking through a rubber plantation and even ultralight flying at Phuket Airpark.
The villa is also ideally located to explore the Phang Nga Bay with its world-famous karst limestone islands. Join an organised tour or schedule your own boat trip from the nearby pier to visit these picturesque natural formations. Or take a daytrip from the same pier to visit the more secluded beaches of the nearby Yao Noi and Yao Yai islands.
Being on the east side of Phuket, the area is also safe from tsunami risk. But if its Indian Ocean beaches you’re after, they are just a 20 minutes’ drive west. The historic Phuket Town with its trendy coffee shops and eateries is a similar drive south.
Finally, the villa makes a great base for excursions further afield into mainland Thailand via the connecting bridge. Ao Phang-nga National Park is just an hour drive away, while 2.5 hours gets you to Khao Sok National Park and the oldest surviving rainforests on earth!
