Set on an acre of beachfront land at Natai Beach, half an hour’s drive from Phuket airport, and with endless ocean views, the six-bedroom Villa Malee Sai offers a lavish tropical escape for families and groups. The villa’s bright, open-plan living and dining rooms open completely to the terrace, outdoor entertaining area and the 25-metre infinity pool that stretches towards the horizon. Villa Malee Sai’s wealth of facilities, which include a modern guest kitchen, TV room, petanque area, table tennis, foosball and bicycles are complemented by the five-star service of its staff, including a skilled Thai chef and friendly villa manager. A dreamy venue for a wedding or special event.
Arranged in a U-shape that wraps around a central pool, Malee Sai offers wide sea views. Set at the villa’s centre, just behind the 25-metre pool, the open-plan living area features floor-to-ceiling glass doors that slide open fully to let the ocean breezes flow through. Access to all areas of the villa, both indoors and out, is via this pivotal space. The TV room off to the side leads to the villa’s single-storey wing with three bedrooms including a master suite that extends along the pool’s length towards the sea. The dining area and guest kitchen are on the ground floor of the two-floor wing opposite, with a second master suite and two guest bedrooms above.
Villa Malee Sai’s interior spaces are warm and inviting, with colourful design touches throughout that complement the vibrant tropical surrounds. In the central section of the villa under a lofty roof is the living room, furnished with a sleek white sofa for relaxing in cool comfort while gazing across the pool and sea. Part of the room is devoted to play, with a foosball table and toys, and it opens completely to the pool terrace in front and the reflecting pool behind for a breezy indoor-outdoor ambiance. Alternatively it can be closed and cooled with air conditioning.
The living area flows to the dining room and modern guest kitchen where the tropical sun shines through floor-to-ceiling glass doors on three sides to light up the room with a golden glow. A main dining table and a small corner table together seat up to 14 guests. The TV room strewn with bean bags and an oversized sofa is a fun, cosy spot for families to gather, and can be sealed off by sliding wooden doors for added privacy.
Set on a beachfront plot of nearly 4,400 square metres, Malee Sai is ideal for lovers of the great outdoors and for staging an enchanting event in the tropics. Serious swimmers and playful water babies will all find plenty space in the 25-metre infinity pool, while the surrounding sunbed-lined deck and canopied barbecue dining area offer stylish spots to unwind. At the front corner of the beachfront lawn is a peak-roofed sala offering relaxation and a prime sea view, while those wanting to burn off some energy can enjoy petanque or badminton on the large lawn to the rear of the villa.
The top-floor suite is an elegant peaked-roof retreat with inspiring sea views and romantic flair, the perfect hideaway for couples. Relax in total privacy on the king-sized bed and loveseat or step out onto the balcony to enjoy the breezy sea views. Added luxuries include a flat-screen TV, large walk-through wardrobe and ensuite bathroom.
This lavish poolside suite has a vaulted roof and fabulous sea views and is furnished with a king-sized bed, wicker lounge chair, work desk and walk-through wardrobe. In the ensuite bathroom is a romantic sunken terrazzo bathtub.
On the ground floor, with easy access to the pool, two sea-view guest bedrooms share a bathroom with a sunken terrazzo bathtub. Two more guest rooms, each with private ensuite bathrooms, are on the floor above. Each of these peak-roofed rooms – two furnished with twin beds and two with king-beds – is a comfy retreat.

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.
