Villa Samakee is located in the secured Layan Estate with high walls and dense foliage giving it complete privacy from neighbouring villas within the estate. Set away from the busy tourist areas, the villa has a feel of total seclusion yet it is easy to access Phuket’s superb west coast beaches and many of the island’s finest dining, shopping and leisure attractions including a two minute drive to Nikki Beach Club. Just two kilometres away is the world-renowned Banyan Tree Spa, the Laguna Phuket Golf Club, and a wonderful range of dining and shopping choices in and around the Laguna resort complex on Bang Tao Beach. The peaceful powder-sand Layan Beach, one kilometre west, retains an idyllic, sleepy feel with traditional longtail fishing boats gliding in and out of the estuary behind it. Shopping centres, nightlife entertainment, international hospitals, more golf courses, marinas and other leisure facilities all are found within a 15- to 20-minute drive.

Villa Samakee is a 25-minute drive south of Phuket International Airport.

How to get there

When you leave the airport, go south on the main highway for about 5 kilometres, until you reach the lights where you can take the first exit to Surin. Get in the right-hand lane and turn right. Follow the road until it makes a sharp 90-degree turn to the left. At that point, turn right towards Laguna. Follow the road for 3.7 kilometres until you reach the main gate for Layan Estates. Tell them you are staying in Villa D. Go straight up the hill. Villa Samakee is the third driveway on your right.
