This villa is a bay-watcher's dream, found directly on the beach at the small yet bustling Yon Bay at the tip of Cape Panwa on Phuket's south-east coast. Still largely undiscovered by the tourist hordes, Ao Yon is a serene bay, with traditional long-tail fishing boats puttering past sparkling yachts, and strings of colorful buoys. Positioned to take full advantage of the bay views, Hai -Leng offers guests a fantastic opportunity to observe Phuket's coastal life, especially from its wide marble terrace and 15 x 10m infinity pool in turquoise tile that matches the bay's jewel-like tones. Stretching across the front of this villa is the shared estate garden, offering lots of running-around space for the kids and direct access to the sands. At the beachfront corner is a pétanque pitch, where you can test your boule-throwing skills in tree-shaded comfort.
Each of the four bedrooms has a private bathroom and its own distinct appeal. The master bedroom offers the best sea views, and from its big semi-open-air shower, you can make a dramatic entry into the pool by jumping straight in from the shower room’s Japanese wooden doors. A twin-bedded room, ideal for children, sits just beside the master suite while the other two bedrooms, both with king-size beds, are on different levels for an added touch of privacy.
