Jane purchased this Villa in 2007
Why Jane chose Choeng Thale
If you are looking for a calm haven, an escape from the stresses of the every day but also want to feel that you are in a warm and luxurious environment, this is the place for you. Villa Inara is 3 minutes away from what we think is the best beach in Phuket....long, wide, uncrowded, white sand in a sweeping bay, fringed by tall green trees swaying in the breeze. Stunning.... Bang Tao Beach is calm and has none of Phuket's rowdier side although there are plenty of local restaurants and bars to go to, all in easy reach, the 5* hotels are all open to non-residents. Unlike the south of Phuket, this is only 20 minutes drive from the airport - it's incredibly convenient and so your holiday can start almost immediately after touch down. Our children love it, not only for the beach but also because of the enclosed garden where they can play football and throw a frisbee, as well as the stunning pool that they spend endless hours playing in. As well as our own private pool, the estate also has two further pools shared by residents that you may use.
What makes this Villa unique
Our housekeeper has been with us since the beginning and is lovely - a real find. She knows how everything works (in and out of the Villa) and is very happy to help. Villa Inara is uniquely positioned to meet everyone's needs - it can be romantic and secluded, it can be family friendly, it can be perfect for friends. You will feel at home and still feel pampered. Our villa is uniquely child friendly - at the time of writing, we have all the kit: changing mats, high chairs, steriliser, travel cot - you name it. We can reduce your packing and increase your levels of relaxation....we know what it's like!! Tell us what you need before you arrive and we shall try to make sure it is all there for you.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
3 minute short stroll from the Villa to Bang Tao Beach, a 6km long, white sandy beach that is never crowded and generally feels idyllically exclusive. Perfect for children and a world away from the crowded and over-used beaches common to the rest of Phuket. Also an excellent small beach restaurant only a 10 minute stroll along the beach which will also do take away if you ask and which is next to the exclusive NikkI Beach Club. The sunbeds available for rental on the beach are very inexpensive but you can also seek shade from the coconut trees.
An easy 20 minute drive from Phuket Airport. To make this as painless as possible, one set of return airport transfers is provided free of charge. Our usual driver has looked after our guests for 6 years and is a safe pair of hands. Car hire/taxi or car and driver is recommended while you are staying in the villa unless you really are seeking out pure beach/pool relaxation. The villa can easily assist with arrangements for car hire and drivers if notified in advance.
The local village is a 3 minute drive away and has many restaurants, shops and art galleries to enjoy as well as lower-priced spas that provide excellent alternatives to the Banyan Tree. Cherng Talay, our local village, boasts excellent Thai, Indian, barbecue, and Italian restaurants as well as the famous Supper Club (excellent steaks), Flame (great BBQ) and Bake for the best croissants in Pkt!
15 to 20 minutes drive away from the restaurants and nightlife of Surin, Phuket town and Patong.
We have been visiting Phuket for years now and are convinced that no beach on the island is as perfect as Bang Tao Beach.
Our local village, a 3 minute drive away, has a wide range of fantastic restaurants to suit all palates. You will be able to pick up freshly baked croissant at Bake every morning. Feel like Thai, Indian, Italian, BBQ? It's all there... Most deliver and menus and contact numbers are in the villa. Many restaurants would even come to pick you up if you want to go to them.
The local 5* hotels have kids clubs and sporting facilities that you can enjoy for a small fee.
Feel like riding on the beach, through the surf? Our local riding stable has well cared for horses.
Thailand is famous for massage and Phuket doesn't disappoint. From the high end Banyan Tree next door to wonderful spas favored by residents - all close by. In the villa you will find out about our local massage therapists that will come to the villa.
We have compiled a book of our top recommendations on places to go, things to do, and other useful tips - you will find this insider's guide in the villa.
There are ATMs at the airport on arrival but also in the local village.
We aim for your holiday to begin as soon as you arrive. Our driver will meet you, our housekeeper will greet you with cool scented towels and a drink, the villa will be awaiting you. If you require basic provisions, send us a shopping list and, as far as possible, our housekeeper will do your shopping for you before you arrive - just reimburse her on arrival.
We are delighted to assist and to answer any questions you may have - please just ask!
