Malaiwana - Villa Rodnaya

The villa you chose is no longer available for rental from us but we have a portfolio of Elite Havens in various locations around South East Asia for you to choose from. Alternatively feel free to send us an enquiry and it'll be our pleasure to help you find the perfect villa for your next holiday.

Sleeps 8 Adults

From its hillside perch overlooking one of the finest beaches in Phuket, Villa Rodnaya is a stylish four-bedroom holiday home whose design and facilities make it ideal for families.  Found within the exclusive Malaiwana estate at Naithon Beach, Rodnaya offers a private sea-view haven for a relaxing tropical escape and a great base for exploring the endless beaches and lush landscapes of the island’s lesser-visited northwest coastal area.

Rodnaya means “close to the heart” in Russian and it’s clear from every detail in this modern, bright villa that this is a place to gather, play and create beautiful memories.  Positioned to capture the exquisite ocean views, every room features sliding glass doors that open to balconies or the wide top-floor terrace with its 18-metre pool.  A transparent safety fence around the pool offers peace of mind for those travelling with young children without obstructing the views, and the poolside dining sala is the perfect spot to enjoy alfresco breakfasts before taking a dip or a barbecue feast at sunset.

The terrace extends from the open-plan living and dining area, which is a bright room set under an elegantly curved wooden roof.  And tucked away behind the living room is a colourful playroom just for the kids; a fun and cosy escape from the tropical sun.  The media room downstairs offers another comfy place to gather.

Every bedroom, including the sumptuous master suite in a poolside pavilion, offers a private bathroom, king-size bed and sea views.  And providing five-star guest service is an experienced staff team including a Thai chef and villa manager who will assist with every aspect of your stay within the villa and beyond.

Naithon, an idyllic kilometre-long beach just minutes away from the villa, beckons with its soft sands and sea sports including snorkelling and standup paddle-boarding, plus seaside vendors serving up tasty Thai food and fresh tropical fruits.  Phuket Airport is just nine kilometres away and many sights and holiday activities including golf, beach clubs and yacht charters are within easy reach.

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 other chic nearby venues include Boat Avenue, Porto de Phuket, and the 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.
