With the cooler weather due to arrive any day now, we’re already planning our getaway, and our sights are set on Phuket. Offering so much more than rowdy nightlife, the island is actually a sophisticated oasis for the tropical traveler, and perfect for a quick weekend break. Here are some of the most beautiful villas.

Life’s hard, but staying in this seven-bedroom paradise makes it a little bit easier. Sporting not one, but two outdoor pools, a Jacuzzi and a private cinema, this one is perfect for big groups. The villa’s team will even help arrange a babysitter if you’re traveling with children.

2. Villa Horizon

Surrounded by ocean and jungle, this 1,300sqm escape is tucked away on the famed Millionaire’s Mile. The hillside vantage grants you clear views of the Andaman Sea and sunsets so beautiful you’ll never want to leave, especially once you’ve found the private spa.

Elegant and understated, this villa’s open sitting room and floor to ceiling windows overlook the Andaman Sea and Phang Nga Bay. The modern design is punctuated with Thai touches and playful contemporary art, and the views over Cape Yamu are unbeatable.

Catch the cool sea breeze from all three levels of this luxurious, ocean facing villa. Cast your eye down the mountain and feast on a forest vista dotted with traditional Thai roofs, a picture-perfect view. Homey and elegant, warm wooden accents and traditional statues give the space a homey feel.

5.  Villa Padma

A stately and sophisticated villa located high above the Phuket foothills for maximum privacy and breathtaking views. Can’t decide if you want to lounge or dip in the pool? Do both – the 25-meter pool has submersed beds! Then lay out and watch the sun set over the nearby mangrove forest.

6. Villa Paradiso

This chic villa looks like it came straight out of the pages of a design catalogue, with clean lines and a neutral palate (excluding the pop-art inspired games room, of course). Overlooking the serene Naithon Beach, this five-bedroom utopia comes complete with a chef, manager and dedicated concierge service. 

7. Villa Kalipay

Tatler Asia

A plant-lovers paradise, this villa captures the beauty of Thailand’s natural landscape with blooming plants and native trees around every corner. Relax on furniture crafted by international designers from around Asia, or work up a sweat in the gym before tucking into some freshly churned ice cream.
