Check It Out

Fill your camera roll with stunning sea and sunset views at Villa Amanzi Kamala.

This thoughtfully designed, carefully built vacation rental spills over the hillside toward the emerald waters of the Andaman Sea in a show of architectural mastery. Though it’s tucked away on the exclusive Cape Amarin estate on Phuket’s west coast, it’s close to Kamala Beach, golf courses, restaurants, entertainment and more.

A nearly 50-foot infinity pool sets a tone of resort-worthy luxury for the villa’s living spaces. Entertain friends and family or simply relax on the loungers alongside the pool or in the outdoor sitting area. Sit down to a meal fresh from the barbecue as you watch the sunset from the al-fresco dining area. After sunset, gather in the media room or share photos of your holiday via Wi-Fi.

Inspired by traditional Thai stilt houses, the villa’s award-winning architecture follows the slope of the hillside, with the bedrooms forming a bridge and the main living areas below. The breathtaking great room can be opened on two sides via slide-away glass walls; the other two walls are formed from the landscape’s rock face. Open-concept living and dining areas are minimalist yet inviting, and the fully equipped kitchen will have you eager to try out local ingredients.

Each of the six bedrooms at Villa Amanzi Kamala is a private haven with a king bed, en-suite bathroom and ocean view or terrace access. Floor-to-ceiling glass perfectly frames the sea and sky, while wood floors lend traditional warmth to the bedroom suites.

The villa’s Cape Amarin location puts guests close to the resort-lined stretch of Kamala Beach and the lively nightlife of Patong Beach. Book a tee time at one of two nearby golf courses, bring the family to a unique dinner show at FantaSea or find a tucked-away spot for a honeymoon-worthy dinner amid the heritage buildings in Phuket Old Town.
