Well i have been to Thailand 18 times now and this is by far the best accommodation i have stayed in to date. I originally only booked in for 5 nights of our months stay and ended spending 3 out of our 4 weeks here.
The villas are stunning and boast all the mod cons. Everything about them is done to the high standards set by the management.
All the staff were fantastic and couldn't do enough to help make our stay as pleasurable as possible. We travelled with 2 young children and the staff were brilliant with them.
As for location it is a quieter part of the island just south of Kata beach which is great for families but also has a good number of really good restaurants and bars to choose from. Rawai is also just a short drive from here. Naiharn beach is probably one of the most beautiful in phuket and only an 800 meter walk past the lake from the villa. There are also a number of good restaurants by the beach.
Basically the villas and the area is paradise at its best!! We will be back

We had 14 lovely days at “Deluxe villas by the lake” in early November 2012, and we will definitely be coming back. The Villas are beautifully designed, with a great mix of western and oriental style. They are situated in beautiful surroundings of green mountains, and from the roof terrace is a great view, that really makes you feel Thailand’s beautiful nature. We really liked that the villas is placed a bit outside of Phuket’s most crowded tourist areas, but still only a short tuk-tuk ride from everything. We are a big family of 6 people, but with the spacious rooms and the great roof terrace it never felt crowded, even when we had friends over for dinner. The staff was always very helpful; helping us plan daytrips, get clothes washed, buying groceries, and driving us around in the Villa’s car. The nearby Nai Harn beach is in walking distance from the villas, and we ended up spending a lot of time there, actually we never tried other beaches because we all agreed that Nai Harn beach was perfect, great sand, great waves, great massage, great food, and not to crowded with tourists. So if you want a great place to stay with family and friends, this is the place to go. We will definitely recommend this to all who wants a little more than just a place to stay. And we are looking forward to be coming back soon.

Looking for something special to stay at? No need to look any further. Phuket Deluxe have it all. Great location, great service, more than great villas. With it's wonderful nearby beach, Nai Harn you know that you're in paradise.

If we wanted to go somewhere there was always someone who was willing to take us where we wanted to go.

Highly recommended...

We rested at the villa and our family with two children. Excellent villa with helpful staff. Everything is left to chance. Equipment and design at the highest level. You must have a car or a scooter, because the villa is some distance from the beach and restaurants. Managers provide for communication with the local phone sim card, which is very convenient. Very relaxing holiday - complete relaxation.

We stayed at Phuket Delux - By The Lake in the middle of May 2012. Together with two small pets: Yorkshire Terrier and Westie... We had 3 bed room apartment with pool and sun deck on top. What to say!? Furniture is new, flat TV - Smart Samsung in Living Room and bed rooms, very good kitchen, spacious bedrooms with en-suited bathrooms.. WI-FI. Narrow private pool but enough to swim a little inside of each apartment. Personnel was very friendly.
We were pleased by a chance to walk near by in the communal park surrounding a lake.. The one is only 500 m away from the complex. Nai-Harn beach is 900 m from the complex... you have to pass the lake and the park to reach nearest beach.. Of course, it's better to have a car to enjoy that accommodation at full.
I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to stay at Phuket and live in comfort and privacy.

This is the first time that my boyfriend and I decided to stay in a villa rather than a hotel and I have to admit that I am now a fan. This villa is really quite fantastic. It was only both of us but we had a two bedroom three story villa to enjoy. We can even cook and the atmosphere is like being at home but in an island paradise.

It's away from the crazy bustling Patong beach. It's quiet and it was a great time for me to spend a wonderful weekend with my boyfriend.

If we wanted to go around the island, we did that with a scooter. The staff is really friendly and helpful and I felt really happy with my stay here.

I recommend this place to whoever who wants to have a quiet time in this island paradise.
