I booked Elemental Villas based on a recommendation of a HongKong expat friend. So I checked it out on Trip advisor haha Tony. As expected it was exactly as my friend Tony described and just what we needed. Artem took great care of our every need, we ordered a delivery from lucky 13 restaurant nearby but it wasn't what we wanted when in Thailand. Artem recomended Chef Selly (My Private Chef phuket ) so pleased he did, absolutely the best Thai food experience of our entire trip to Thailand. Artem also supplied us with great tips on Wine and places to visit. The property has great sea views although not on a sandy beach, is luxurious has an elevator a great roof top pool. We will return.
Excellent villa with incredible luxuries. My family (5 adults, 2 kids) traveled here the first week in April, looking for some local sightseeing, but mostly relaxation. This house was incredible: 6,000 sq feet (I missed that when I booked it), 3 living levels plus the amazing rooftop pool with a built in elevator that was perfect for my parents (what?). Artem manages the place and was very helpful showing us the house, setting up local transportation (to include an airport transfer), and making outstanding local food recommendations. The villa itself is a bit secluded and not terribly close to restaurants. However, the available 24 hour café (free delivery) has outstanding food (Lucky 13) that shows up at your door within 30-40 minutes (online menu is slightly different than the printed one available in the villa). The living accommodations were great (cleaned every other day by a local crew). Every room has a king size bed that is comfy and plush. There is only one bathtub in the house (what I considered the master bedroom on the garage level), but the kids had no issues using the showers. The kitchen is very well stocked, with the highlight being the German $2,000 (new online price) espresso/cappuccino machine which was put to use multiple times a day - now we're somewhat sad to be back to our regular coffee maker. While the house is spectacular, it doesn't compare to the rooftop pool. Amazing ~16 foot lit lap/infinity pool! Kids spent at least half the day perfecting their swimming skills and jumping on the oversized inflatable pool float. The outdoor living space was awesome, with a fully stocked outdoor kitchen with a grill/fridge, a full bathroom and elevator access. If you're looking for a Thai beach experience, you'll have to catch a taxi. The house is at the back of the complex (another row of houses between it and the bay). However, the views of the bay were incredible from 2 of 3 living levels, especially from the living room and rooftop. The bay itself is very shallow, and at low tide the water goes about 1 km away, leaving a variety of tide pools and mud shallows that are fun to explore. At high tide, the water comes up as high as your knees and fills in all the way to the little beach at the front of the complex. While this isn't a great swimming beach, it was perfectly fine for us - it kept the majority of tourists away, gave us plenty of privacy, and the pool made up for anything else! The only way I would improve this experience would by recommending to Artem to provide a grocery list. We've seen this on a previous trip, where the manager provides an initial purchase of groceries and adds that to the total price - that was helpful to get everybody settled after a long trip to the country. Overall, this was an incredible experience that I'd replicate in a heartbeat.
