Discerning families and groups will relish the spectacular beachfront setting of Villa Essenza, a chic six-bedroom holiday escape facing beautiful Natai Beach, 30 minutes to the north of Phuket International Airport. Forming a U-shape around the pool, the villa’s bright, open-plan living and dining rooms connect seamlessly to the breezy terrace and outdoor entertaining areas. Settle in for a lavish tropical break with an attentive team of staff including a skilled Thai chef to cater to your every whim. Facilities at the villa include a 25-metre pool set on an acre of manicured tropical grounds, a sleek guest kitchen, TV room, paddle boards, kayaks and barbecue. Villa Essenza is the perfect place to stage a photo-perfect wedding or special event.
This villa of shimmering glass walls is arranged in a U-shape that brings focus to the central pool and majestic sea views. Set just behind the 25-metre pool, Essenza’s open-plan living area features floor-to-ceiling glass doors that slide open fully to let the ocean breezes flow through. All areas of the villa – inside and out – are accessed via this pivotal space. On one side, the TV room 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 upstairs.
Essenza’s living areas are thoughtfully designed to blend the villa’s sleek interior spaces with the exquisite tropical surrounds, allowing for ease of movement and airflow. Centrally positioned under a peaked roof is the living room, furnished with a sumptuous sofa for relaxing in cool comfort while gazing across the pool and sea. The room opens completely to the pool terrace in front and the reflecting pool behind for a breezy indoor-outdoor ambiance, or it can be closed and cooled with air conditioning.
The living area flows to the dining room and modern guest kitchen where floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors on three sides let the tropical sun light up the room with a magical glow. Festive meals can be enjoyed at the grand 14-seat dining table, while the breakfast bar offers a more casual place to dine. The TV room adjacent to the living area is a cosy spot for movie-watching, and can be sealed off by sliding wooden doors for added privacy.
With almost an acre of beachfront land to play on, Essenza is an outdoor lover’s dream home. Cool down and relish the sea views from the 25-metre infinity pool, then soak up the sun on one of the sun loungers that line the stylish deck. Perfect for events or informal family gatherings, the barbecue dining area is comfortably shaded by a canopy. On the beachfront lawn is a peak-roof sala offering prime sea views, while sporty guests can make use of the villa’s volleyball and football equipment on the large lawn to the rear of the villa.
Perfect for guests looking for a touch of romance on their holiday, the top-floor suite is an elegant peaked-roofed retreat with inspiring sea views. Relax in total privacy on the king-sized bed, or step onto the balcony for views and a cooling sea breeze. Added luxuries include a large walk-through wardrobe and ensuite bathroom.
Couples will covet this stylish king-bedded suite in the poolside wing. Floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors offer views galore and direct access to the pool, while the home theatre, work desk, walk-through wardrobe and ensuite bathroom with a sunken terrazzo soaker tub complete this haven of luxury.
Two sea-view guest bedrooms lie on the ground floor of this two-storey wing, with easy access to the pool and a shared bathroom with a sunken terrazzo tub. Two further guest rooms, each with a private ensuite bathroom, are situated above the dining area. Each of these peak-roofed rooms – two furnished with twin beds and two with a single and queen-sized bed – make comfy retreats.

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.
