Villa Beyond shares its enviable sea-view position high upon a jungle-clad hill with only two other villas. Surrounded by lush tropical flowers and with the mountain as a backdrop the villa is disturbed only by the sounds of village life from below. Bang Tao village is a peaceful residential area populated mostly by fisherfolk where life revolves around a big golden-spired mosque. There are no stores or services in the village, so car hire is essential for shopping trips, dining out and exploring the island.
A three-kilometre drive south-west of the villa will bring you to sparkling Surin Beach, an 800m stretch of fine sand that has been cleared of all commercial activity and restored to its natural state. About three kilometres to the north of Villa Beyond is peaceful Bang Tao beach, a postcard vision of tropical bliss with white sands, sun beds and a host of water sports including windsurfing and paddle boarding. Families will enjoy mini golf and nearby family-friendly beach clubs offering all day dining with occasional live performances and international music acts.

Things to do
There are plenty of things to keep you amused on this tropical island. Here are just 10 of the best we have selected especially for you. The villa manager offers a full concierge service and can arrange everything to your satisfaction.
Indulge in Phuket’s beach club scene, Bang Tao’s Bliss Beach Club is designed for families, newly opened HQ Beach Lounge is the place to enjoy sunsets on Kamala Beach and dine under the stars. If parties are more your thing, then head to Xana Beach Club in the Laguna Phuket complex.
Water babies will delight in Phuket’s spectacular marine life, enjoy snorkeling closer to home and take a trip to Nai Yang or Mai Khao Beaches. Or book a SCUBA diving day out to nearby Phi Phi, Racha or Coral Islands.
Take in the sights of the glittering Yacht scene at any of the following marinas: Royal Phuket Marina, Boat Lagoon, or Yacht Haven.
When the seas are calm enjoy stand up paddle boarding, swimming and sea kayaking at nearby Bang Tao or Surin Beaches. When the season changes get ready to catch the waves with a surfboard, windsurf or go to nearby Anthem Wakeboarding Park at any time of year.
Tee off at Laguna Phuket Gold Club, or sample Phuket’s other courses including, Mission Hills, Blue Canyon and Red Mountain.
Thailand is renowned for its spa therapies so indulge in some pampering. Nearby hotels boasting the best spa treatments include Keemala, Pavilions and Amanpuri. Alternatively, there are many local shops or spots on the beach that offer a good, no frills Thai massage.
Phuket has plenty of temptations for shopaholics: Surin Plaza offers upmarket choices and is close by, or enjoy a few hours in Boat Avenue and pick up anything from souvenirs, jewellery and resort clothing, to wine and furniture.
Support Phuket’s wildlife and visit the Gibbon Rehabilitation Centre and soon to open the Phuket Elephant Sanctuary, a place that re-homes elephants.
Night owls should head for the late-night sights of Patong Beach: dance the night away in a disco, stroll the bizarre and bawdy Soi Bangla walking street, savour cocktails and wine at a chic waterfront bar.
Take a boat trip to see the mystical limestone karsts of Phang Nga Bay. We recommend the eco-tour ‘Hong by Starlight’ – a magical experience.

Villa Beyond – Bang Tao 7 bedroom luxury villa, PhuketElite Havens
Villa Beyond is an exclusive holiday villa sitting pretty on the mountainside and graced with fabulous views and peaceful surroundings. Hidden away on a private road just a few minutes from Bang Tao, this seven-bedroom villa has an attentive dedicated staff and is an ideal setting for winding down and spending time together.
Villa Beyond’s calm ambiance is enhanced by stylish décor, hypnotic views and tropical birdsong in the garden. A blend of natural materials results in a simple but beautiful interior, complemented by bespoke furniture artfully created from wood and metal.
The seven bedroom suites provide discreet hideaways with large, comfortable beds and panoramic views, particularly the master suite with its massive soaker tub and jacuzzi, big enough for two. Every bedroom is equipped with a flat-screen TV and sound system.
Time at Villa Beyond stands still as days are spent swimming and sunbathing. A refreshing dip in the infinity pool or a lazy afternoon lounging on the terrace to the sound of the waterfall will soothe away any worries.
Enjoy a relaxing breakfast on the sail-shaded outdoor dining terrace, or up on the rooftop where there is nothing to disturb the peace. Bliss out with a massage and delight in the delicious Thai dishes prepared by your in-villa chef. As evening falls, the island and ocean view transforms into a vista of stars and twinkling lights, inviting you to venture out and discover Phuket’s vibrant nightlife.
