The Pines is one of the newest villas on spectacular, unspoilt Natai Beach in Phang Nga, north of Phuket. Luxuriously private, the villa rests on a secluded beach and has been designed for casual living in natural surroundings by an international team of architects based in London, Milan and Bangkok. The Pines is a rustic yet modern beach house, handcrafted from Burmese teak, Thai ceramics, and granite stone.
The teak wood living room is ideal for socializing and relaxation, with open-plan spaces, comfortable seating and modern appliances. Walls of sliding glass open the structure completely, transforming the living room and pool veranda into a single space overlooking an endless beach, the emerald sea, and unforgettable sunsets.
Outdoor living is encouraged at The Pines. Attentive staff will happily serve you beverages and snacks at the pool veranda and the beachside sala. In addition, a fully equipped gym, home theatre and five comfortable bedrooms beckon you indoors.
Elegant and earthy, with extensive use of Burmese teak wood, each of the villa's five pavilions feature lofty roofs and sliding glass doors that can be pulled back for open-air living. The rooms are well-spaced out and private, connected via a winding pool deck.
Which brings us to one of the highlights of the villa, a refreshing 20-metre lap pool, right in front of the beach. Picture yourself sipping a cocktail in the pool or at the outdoor sala, as the sun sets over the vast sea. Marvel at the colours in the sky, while your villa attendants and chef busy themselves crafting memorable dining experiences for you each night.
Barefoot living is pure indulgence, though you may take it for granted at The Pines. An idyllic setting for groups of families, it has plenty to keep everyone occupied, including an entertainment room, gym, outdoor living spaces and an abundance of sun loungers strewn around the expansive poolside terrace.
Allow yourself to wind down and take advantage of lazy days spent in the sunshine, the pool and the sea, while evenings bring the stars out across the dark, clear sky.
The semi-rural coastline is best explored on bicycles, passing villages, local stalls and the unfiltered Thai countryside. And with a beach club and delicious dining destinations close by, you may even be tempted to stop for a chilled glass of wine on your way back. We won't blame you. You're on holiday, after all.
To the left of the main living room is the master bedroom, with the fifth guest bedroom behind it. On the right of the living room, you will find the second and third guest bedrooms. The gym, entertainment room and the fourth guest bedroom are located behind it.
The open-plan living room has a modern kitchen on the left, with a large breakfast bar, and an elegant living room on the right. Meanwhile, a long dining table takes centre stage, all with views of the Andaman Sea beyond the 20-metre pool.
The beachfront pool deck is dotted with eight sun loungers, a dining table that seats eight guests, and a shaded sala with two sun loungers.
