Sleeps 6 Adults

With modern flair and superb views – especially at sunrise, Villa Abiente is a three-bedroom holiday retreat in Cape Yamu on Phuket’s scenic east coast. Abiente offers couples and groups a chic hideaway with open-plan living areas and a 12-metre infinity pool and sun deck for optimal bay views.

Bright, sleek interiors that open up completely across the front make Villa Abiente a cool and calming place to unwind and enjoy the tropical breezes. This is easy island life at its best, with a stylish sunken outdoor lounge set poolside for refreshing drinks after a dip, and two poolside bedroom suites with fantastic sea views. All three bedrooms offer luxurious ensuite bathrooms, two with double bathtubs, while the cosy media room has a sofa bed and ensuite bathroom. The open-plan living area makes an inviting place to gather, with its stylish sitting room, dining table for eight and sparkling kitchen with a breakfast bar overlooking the pool. White and grey tones and floor-to-ceiling glass throughout give Abiente a modern shimmer, while the grand entry hall, featuring a large mural and Zen rock garden, creates an intriguing welcome.

A full team of friendly staff ease guests into Abiente’s warm embrace. The chef provides sumptuous breakfasts and delicious Thai meals and an English-speaking villa manager offers friendly assistance in the villa and beyond. Facilities available for guest use within the Baan Yamu estate include a restaurant and bar, a well-equipped gym and an Olympic-size pool. Beyond the villa, the Phuket east coast idyll beckons with boat trips around spectacular Phang Nga Bay, golf, spas and waterfalls, all within easy reach.

Found within the exclusive and secure Baan Yamu estate on Cape Yamu, Villa Abiente offers a tranquil escape perfect for exploring Phuket’s east-coast sights. Within the estate is a modern collection of residences and villas, with a restaurant and bar, one of the island’s largest swimming pools, and an air-conditioned gym available for guests. Opposite Baan Yamu is a seaside promenade and small pier, a pleasant area for an evening stroll, and where kayaks and speedboats are available for hire. The sunrise views over the bay will encourage early morning starts, and Villa Abiente’s easy access to local marinas make a Phang Nga Bay cruise a must. Between the east coast’s calm bays dotted with long-tail fishing boats, lush forested hillsides and acres of rubber-plantations are some surprisingly upscale dining choices including top Phuket restaurant Breeze at Cape Yamu, renowned for its long lazy Sunday brunches.

More information for Things to do
Villa Abiente is perfectly positioned for exploring Phuket’s rural east coast and for cruising the fabulous islands and waters of Phang Nga Bay. And its location just to the east of the island’s main north/south thoroughfare gives easy access to many popular beaches and to Phuket Town. Here’s just a sampling of some of our recommended sights and activities beyond the villa:

  1. Explore the iconic karst islands of Phang Nga Bay, made famous in the James Bond classic ‘The Man with the Golden Gun’. Cruise the scenic waters aboard a luxury yacht or paddle through the caves on a sea kayaking daytrip.
  2. Indulge in a Long Lazy Sunday brunch with beautiful bay views at Breeze restaurant, just a five-minute drive from the villa. Enjoy a dozen or more selections with the menu refreshed regularly to ensure the best seasonal ingredients, all served with style at a single long table that seats 40 guests.
  3. Go surfing at one of Phuket’s west-coast beaches including Kalim just north of Patong Beach and Kamala, or if conditions allow hire a SUP board and explore the coastline by paddle. Or head inland to the lake at Anthem Wake Park for some cable wakeboarding and, for the kids, an inflatable aqua park.
  4. Take a stroll back through time with a walk around Phuket Old Town and its historic Sino-Portuguese shophouses, many of which have been converted into chic cafés and boutiques. On Sunday evenings the colourful streets host the lively Lard Yai market offering tasty local food, art and handicrafts for sale.
  5. Learn the secrets of Thai cuisine in a cookery class offered by the talented chefs at the nearby Nahmyaa restaurant in Como Point Yamu resort, or try a class with the master of Thai fusion fare, Chef Tammasak “Noi” Chootong of Suay restaurant.
  6. Phuket is home to two wildlife sanctuaries, both found on the east coast. At the Gibbon Rehabilitation Project, just inside the entrance to Khao Phra Thaeo national park, learn more about these endangered primates and the efforts to release gibbons saved from poachers back to the wild. Or book a tour of the Phuket Elephant Sanctuary to watch rescued elephants at play in their natural environment.
  7. Tee-off at one of Phuket’s meticulously landscaped golf courses including Mission Hills, Laguna Phuket Golf Club and Blue Canyon Country Club. 
  8. Give your body and mind a restorative boost with a massage or beauty session at a Phuket luxury spa. Nearby is the COMO Shambhala Retreat at Point Yamu resort, or book into the Banyan Tree Spa for a truly royal treatment.
  9. Browse for local crafts, beach fashions, brand-name clothing and more at one of Phuket’s shopping centres including Premium Outlet near Phuket Town, Jungceylon mall in Patong Beach and Boat Avenue near Bangtao Beach.
  10. Discover the exotic marine life of the Andaman Sea on a scuba diving or snorkelling day trip to nearby islands including Koh Khai, the Similan islands, Koh Phi Phi and the Raya islands.


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.
