Set in the ultra-exclusive Malaiwana estate with spectacular views over Naithon Beach, the four-bedroom Duplex residences make enticing Phuket holiday escapes.  Blending modern tropical luxury with an easy island lifestyle, the Duplexes offer total tranquillity and impeccable hospitality to families or groups of friends.

The Duplexes’ chic living and dining areas and their 15-metre private pools and pool decks offer plenty of space for total relaxation.  Blazing sunsets over the Andaman Sea can be appreciated from nearly every room and, making the most of Phuket’s glorious tropical climate, sliding glass doors seamlessly merge indoor and outdoor living space.

The serene and beautiful Naithon Beach, a one-kilometre stretch of powder-soft sand, is just a short walk or buggy ride down the hill.  Simply relax on the sands, snorkel, standup paddle or sample some fresh grilled seafood from one of the seaside vendors.  Phuket Airport is just nine kilometres away and many Phuket highlights including golf, spas, beach clubs and yacht charters are within easy reach.

At your service is a welcoming team of staff including a chef, highly skilled in Thai cuisine, and a friendly villa manager who will ensure your every need is met - both within the villa and beyond.

For larger groups and those seeking an inspiring wedding and event location, the Malaiwana estate offers an exceptional choice of accommodation.  In addition to the Duplexes, rental options include the 4-bedroomed Penthouse apartments and the heavenly 6-bedroomed Villa Haleana.  All residences and villas have private swimming pools and spectacular Andaman Sea views.

The crystal-clear waters of the Andaman Sea and the powder-soft sands of Naithon Beach are in full view from every villa and residence at Malaiwana. Just a short walk or downhill drive away from the estate, this pristine one-kilometre-long beach on Phuket’s peaceful northwest coast is perfect for sunning, swimming, snorkelling, stand-up paddling and sandcastle building.  A tranquil village atmosphere prevails in this unspoiled corner of the island and the beach road is lined with low-key shops and cafés.  Along the coast, numerous hidden coves and beaches are waiting to be discovered.

Just up the road, the Trisara Resort offers fabulous dining, and plenty of trendy beachfront restaurants at Bang Tao, eight kilometres to the south.

Malaiwana is an easy 20-minute drive from Phuket International Airport.

More information for Things to do

Though it may be tempting to spend your entire holiday in cossetted comfort, Malaiwana also makes a great base for exploring Phuket’s quieter northern coastline and interior.  With your villa manager’s help, bookings and transport to the island’s top leisure activities and sights can be easily arranged.

Here’s a selection of some of the activities on offer beyond Malaiwana: 
  1. Hop on a stand-up paddle board at Naithon Beach and explore the coves and beaches of Phuket’s rugged northern coastline.  Make a stop at the tiny Banana Beach for a refreshing drink and snorkel session.
  2. Indulge in a Sunday brunch or romantic sunset dinner at Trisara resort.
  3. Enjoy a solitary stroll along Mai Khao Beach, the most northern and isolated beach on Phuket, or try a surf or kiteboarding session at Nai Yang Beach. 
  4. Head east and discover Phuket’s lush interior on a jungle trek to the waterfalls at Khao Phra Thaeo National Park, and be sure to say hello to the inhabitants of the Gibbon Rehabilitation Project at the park entrance.  At the Phuket Elephant Sanctuary, which is in the same area, visitors can observe elephants rescued from the tourist trade.
  5. The Andaman Sea beckons with spectacular scenery and rich marine life, best explored aboard a chartered luxury yacht or on a snorkel or scuba diving trip.  Glide past the towering karsts of Phang Nga Bay, swim with the colourful fish off Raya island, soak up the sun on the brilliant white sands of Koh Hong, and more.    
  6. Take some time to restore your body and mind during a day of pampering and luxury at the fabulous Banyan Tree Spa, or go for a simple yet invigorating Thai massage session right on the beach.
  7. Delve into Phuket’s rich culture and history with a walking tour of the Old Town, its streets lined with colourful Sino-Portuguese shophouses and some of the island’s best local eats.
  8. Discover the secrets of delicious Thai cuisine at a cookery class, which often includes a visit to a local market to shop for fresh ingredients. 
  9. Play a round or two at one of the island’s scenic golf courses including Laguna Golf Club with lagoons and mountain views and the Nicklaus-designed Mission Hills with stunning ocean views.
  10. Add some dazzle and upbeat DJ music to your seaside sundowner at one of Phuket’s beach clubs. Try Dream Beach Club at Layan Beach or Catch Beach Club at Bang Tao.


Shake off the stress of holiday planning. Let the Elite Concierge take care of all your bookings and arrangements, from transport, tours and restaurant reservations, to any special requests for your arrival. We’re here to make your holiday experience extraordinary.
