Welcome to Villa Amarisa, which you may mistake for a museum.
This exquisite and exclusive holiday home is set within a secure estate on the upscale Millionaires Mile headland in Kamala, Phuket. There is nothing ordinary about Villa Amarisa – a dreamy hideaway for a group of families and friends, this five-bedroom villa stuns with a personal collection of rare antiques and original artwork. Spacious living areas flow onto a huge terrace, revealing a cliff-edge infinity pool with a jacuzzi, offering a chance to escape into tropical bliss. The genuine Thai hospitality of the villa’s team of staff, including an exceptional Thai chef, completes this idyllic villa experience.
ABOUT VILLA AMARISA
The moment you set foot into Villa Amarisa, you realise that this villa is like no other. The sea views and blue skies are only part of the charm here, the highlight being the owner’s personal collection of rare antiques, sculptures and art from across the world. Akin to living in a museum, albeit a very luxurious one, a stay at Villa Amarisa offers unlimited opportunities for your jaw to drop in awe. At the entrance itself, carved wood Indian pillars and a limited-edition Ducati motorbike on show prepare you for the grandeur that awaits at this unique and exclusive villa.
Even the lift is magnificent, framed by intricate wooden doorway frames, and with dramatic black interiors highlighted by a gold-plated leaf. Allowing easy mobility to the elderly, the elevator deftly takes you to the lower levels, where the polished hardwood floors sweep into five spacious bedroom suites and an expansive living and dining room. Built in honour of the owner’s mother, the love and attention put into the villa’s design is reflected in details such as an intricately woven carpet gifted by the King of Bhutan, a 200 year old black panther, hats made with flamingo feathers and an unbelievable full-size sculpture of an apsara that dates back to 2-3 BC.
Every bit an island paradise, the villa invites you to cool off in its remarkable 24-metre sea view infinity pool with a built-in jacuzzi, or enjoy a floating breakfast. Lounge lazily on the shaded sunbeds and indulge in a glass of champagne, or catch a tan. For those with more energy, the fitness studio is well-equipped, while others can get comfortable on the plump sofas for a competitive game of chess.
The attentive villa staff is on hand to take care of your every need. The Villa Manager can advise on local sights and recommend outside dining options, whilst the skilled chef whips up delicious international or Thai delights that will make your mouth water.
A vacation at Villa Amarisa isn’t complete without a trip to the beautiful Kamala Beach nearby, where the local fishermen are busy with the day’s catch and the snorkelling is superb. But staying in one of the most exclusive personal homes in the world, you may be hard-pressed to find a reason to step out at all.
