Just half an hour north of Phuket airport, facing the pristine sands of Natai Beach, the six-bedroom Villa Amarelo is an enticing tropical escape for families or groups with its generous beachfront setting and bright, open design. The U-shaped villa’s chic bedroom suites and open-plan living and dining areas wrap around a 25-metre pool, surrounded by ample terracing and lawns for outdoor entertaining. Guests are lavished with attention from a team of full-time staff that includes a villa manager and skilled Thai chef. A wealth of leisure facilities are available for guest use, including a pool table, surfboards, football and volleyball equipment. For a romantic tropical wedding or special event, Amarelo is a magical venue with endless sea views.
Arranged in a U-shape around a central pool, Villa Amarelo is designed to capture the majestic sea views in harmony with its tropical surrounds. An open-plan living area lies just a few steps away from the 25-metre pool, with floor-to-ceiling glass doors that slide open completely to let the ocean breezes flow through. Access to all areas of the villa, both indoors and out, is via this pivotal space. On one side, the TV room leads through to the villa’s single-storey wing, which houses three bedrooms, including a master suite that extends along the pool’s length towards the sea. Opposite, the dining area and guest kitchen occupy the ground floor of a two-storey wing, with a second master suite and two guest bedrooms above.
Amarelo’s indoor living areas are set around the pool on the ground floor of the villa, providing luxurious space for relaxing and entertaining in style. In the central section of the villa is the vaulted living room, furnished with a chic grey sofa facing the sea. This bright room opens completely to the pool terrace in front and the reflecting pool behind to create a breezy indoor-outdoor connection, or it can be closed and cooled with air conditioning. The living area connects to the dining room and modern guest kitchen where floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors on three sides add a tropical sun-kissed glow to the stylish space. Dine with easy elegance at the long wooden dining table for 12, an inviting place to gather for meals with sea and pool views. The TV room adjacent to the living area has a large flat-screen TV and pool table, and can be sealed off by sliding wooden doors for added privacy.
Set on 3,800 square metres of beachfront gardens, Amarelo offers ample space for hosting events or simply enjoying some outdoor playtime with family and friends. Its 25-metre infinity pool stretches towards the sea and is surrounded by a spacious sundeck furnished with sunbeds and a canopied barbecue dining area. On the beachfront lawn is a peak-roofed sala offering prime sea views, while a large lawn behind the villa is just the spot to set up the villa’s football or volleyball nets.
With its fine ocean and pool views, this romantic top-floor suite is sure to be coveted by couples. Relax in complete privacy under this king-bedded room’s grand peaked-roof. Sit back on the comfy rattan chairs to watch TV, or step out onto the balcony for some sun and fresh sea air. This room also features a large walk-through wardrobe and ensuite bathroom.

Shush! Don’t tell anyone, but just over the bridge from busy Phuket island is a 10-kilometre-long beach of heavenly white sand. The pristine, near-deserted Natai Beach faces the shimmering waters of the Andaman Sea and is backed by a tranquil rural landscape where buffalo roam and farmers tend their land. It’s in this splendid tropical Thai setting that the seven deluxe Sava Beach Villas bring holiday dreams to life, and where weddings and events unfold in magical style.
Sava’s five largest villas – seven-bedroomed Tievoli and six-bedroomed Amarelo, Cielo, Essenza and Malee Sai – lie on the beachfront set in lush landscaped gardens. Villas Aqua and Roxo – each with four bedrooms – are situated just behind, offering sea views from three storeys of bright contemporary living space.
These designer villas embrace their tropical seaside setting with glass-encased, open-plan living and dining areas that lead out to sun terraces and 25- or 18-metre infinity pools. Though the villas share the same stunning architectural features, each has a unique character that reflects the style and passions of its owner.
Individual teams of professionally trained staff take care of each villa and its guests. These teams include a villa manager, villa attendants and a skilled Thai chef, all offering attentive personalised service.
Though it’s only a 30-minute drive from Phuket airport, Natai Beach has somehow remained off the tourist track and along its endless sands are just a small sprinkling of visitors and a few upscale resorts. The area’s natural wonders, including Phang Nga Bay, jungle-clad parks and waterfalls, invite exploration, while some surprisingly fine dining can be found just minutes away at the Aleenta and Iniala resorts. Airport transfers and private car hire (with driver) can be arranged at the time of your reservation, giving you freedom to explore this beautiful part of Thailand.
If your holiday dream is to get away from it all, relax with family and friends next to a beautiful beach, be looked after by caring staff, discover the delights of Thai cuisine, or even host a magical celebration, Sava Beach Villas is the place for you.
