A dreamy Phuket holiday awaits at Villa Nautilus, a sleek five-bedroom retreat with spectacular views across Phang Nga Bay. Set on the hillside of Ao Po peninsula on Phuket’s east coast, Nautilus is the perfect choice for those seeking a luxury haven far from the tourist crowds.

With its modern and open design, Nautilus offers a breathtaking view of towering islands rising from the Andaman Sea. Watch the tide rise and fall in the bay and the sea changing from brilliant blue to golden peach as the sun goes down. Sailboats glide by and fishermen wade through the calm waters to cast their nets, while egrets circle overhead. Tranquil scenes of life on the Thai coastline unfold before your eyes.

With its airy double-height ceiling, the upper floor of this stunning two-storey villa offers ample indoor and outdoor living space for all your friends and family to relax in comfort. Take in the views while playing a few rounds of pool, then retreat to the TV room for a film night after a delicious Thai dinner prepared by your personal chef at the sleek dining table.

Sliding glass doors across the villa’s entire front flood the interiors with tropical light, and offer easy access to the 20-metre infinity pool with jacuzzi jets and the outdoor lounging and dining areas. Just a few steps down from the pool is a terrace with a four-hole putting green for honing your golf  And for the ultimate stress-relief, escape to the villa’s luxurious spa room to enjoy a Thai massage or other healing treatment in complete privacy and comfort. Each of the five bedrooms is a tranquil haven as well, with ensuite bathrooms and a choice of twin, queen or king-sized beds making the villa ideal for families.    

A welcoming team of staff offer Nautilus guests five-star treatment: a chef who’s a wizard with Thai cuisine and seafood, housekeepers to keep the villa tidy and a villa manager to ensure all your needs are met.

Ao Po peninsula lies on the northeastern fringe of Phuket with spectacular views across Phang Nga Bay. One of nine villas on The Estate Beachfront, Villa Nautilus is set on a large hillside plot with views stretching from a mangrove-lined beach below to towering karst islands in the distance. The shallow bay is not ideal for swimming, but it’s a favourite spot for local fisherman to wade in and cast their nets. Only  a 30-minute drive from Phuket airport, the villa is in a prime position for exploring Phuket’s peaceful east coast and the stunning bays and islands of Phang Nga, especially with Ao Po Grand Marina – a superyacht haven – just a 15-minute walk away. Boat trips can be arranged from the marina or at the nearby Ao Po pier, and there’s regular speedboat ferry service to Koh Yao Noi and Koh Yao Yai from Bang Rong Pier.

Things to do

Villa Nautilus may be remote from the main tourist areas of Phuket, but there’s plenty to see and do in the area, especially for seafarers. And within a 40-minute drive you can reach Phuket’s better-known beaches, dining spots and leisure activities. Your villa manager will be able to help with bookings and transport, and will have more ideas on what to see and do. In the meantime, here are just a few suggestions:

  • Phang Nga Bay looks enticing enough when viewed from the villa, but its towering limestone islands and calm waters are even more dazzling when seen up close. Charter a yacht to discover the bay in style, or join a sea kayaking tour and paddle through hidden tropical lagoons and caves dripping with sparkling stalactites.
  •  Much of Phuket’s east coast is a green maze of mangroves and what better way to explore these than with a standup paddle tour? Paddle Phuket offers day trips for small groups of SUP enthusiasts that take you around scenic inlets and coastlines near Ao Po, with board rental included.
  •  Enjoy some wildlife encounters the ethical way with a tour of the Phuket Elephant Sanctuary or by visiting the Gibbon Rehabilitation Project. Find out more about these organisations’ rescue efforts while watching beautiful creatures go about their day.
  • Venture further into the jungle with a mini-trek to Bang Pae Waterfall. The waterfall is in Khao Phra Thaeo National Park, a protected area of pristine tropical forest. Longer hikes to Tonsai Waterfall are possible, though it’s recommended to hire a guide for this one.
  • Try a round of tropical golf at Mission Hills – an east-coast golf course with amazing views – or travel a bit further to Laguna Phuket Golf Club or Blue Canyon Country Club. 
  • Discover Koh Yao Noi, an island of scenic rural landscapes and breathtaking coastlines, just a short boat ride from Ao Po. Cycle along quiet roads past buffalo fields and pineapple plantations, have a picnic lunch on a remote beach accessed only by long-tail boat, and learn more about the island’s traditional way of life on a guided day tour.
  • Shop and stroll in Phuket’s Old Town, its streets lined with colourful Sino-Portuguese shophouses, tasty local eateries and cute cafes. Stop in at the Thai Hua museum to learn more about the history of the island’s Chinese community, or spend a Sunday evening exploring the weekly Lard Yai street market, bustling with great local food shops, artists and handicraft sellers.   
  •  Enjoy a day on the sand at one of Phuket’s peaceful northern beaches. Nai Yang is the nearest to the villa, with soft sands to relax on under the shade of casuarina trees and a few beachside restaurants. Standup paddle board rental and kite surfing are among the popular activities, while part of the beach is a protected national park. Go to the northern end of Nai Yang or up to Mai Khao Beach to enjoy some plane spotting, with jets flying in and out of nearby Phuket airport all day, sometimes right over the beach for a dramatic sight! 
  • Try some wakeboarding at Anthem Wake Park, with cable-ski facilities to suit all ages and abilities as well as an inflatable aqua park for kids to bounce and splash around. Attached to the park is Rebel Rock Climbing, with a well-designed climbing wall offering some fun challenges for those wanting to test their strength and agility. A good rainy-day activity. 
  • If you love Thai cuisine, you might want to learn how to recreate your favourite dishes so you can enjoy them at home. Thai cookery classes are available at many restaurants and resorts around Phuket, including the Como Point Yamu resort in Cape Yamu, and at the popular Suay Restaurant in Cherng Talay, where Chef Tammasak “Noi” Chootong, known for his finesse with Thai and fusion food, shares some of his secrets.
