Pura Vida Villas Phuket
Reviewed November 4, 2012

This villa is a special place, ran by special people:-)
I cannot rate it high enough. My family had the best time here. The pool was amazing, the gardens were amazing, the wifi was Fast and Free, the villa itself and the decor was luxurious, but not so that you did not want your kids to touch anything in case it breaks!
The owner Jane could not do enough for us really. She organised a rental car for us and on our first night I was not sure what to get for dinner so Jane drove me to a restaurant on the beach and waited while my dinner was being cooked!
Right from the airport pick up in the luxury van by the lovely driver (wat) our whole experience was amazing, I cannot wait to return! Thank you Jane, Bank and Wat :-)

Room Tip: All the rooms are wonderful:-) :-) :-) :-)

We stayed at Pura Vida at the beginning of July 2012 for two nights after staying at another hotel earlier on. The villas had 3 bedrooms and all with ensuite bathrooms and large living areas and kitchen. There were large flat screen TVs with satellite TV and DVD player and free wifi.The main bathroom had a very spacious spa bath and an outside rain shower. There was also a steam room or sauna as well and a private pool for each villa. It was all very spacious and luxurious with beautiful well kept private gardens. We had a very peaceful and private stay and we had our breakfasts cooked every morning by the staff with daily cleaning of the villa. There was also a washing machine which was very useful. It is quite close to Nai Yang and Nai Thon beaches and close to the airport. However, it seems so far away from urban areas as it is located in quiet lush countryside. We even saw water buffalo nearby. You must be aware that Pura Vida is isolated and there is nowhere within walking distance. There is a private secure parking spot if you have a hire car. The staff there are very helpful and they will transport you to the nearby beaches with their passenger van and we were given great recommendations for restaurants. We ate at Batik Restaurant at Nai Yang Beach and we were very pleasantly surprised at how delicious and well priced the food was. You must try their fruit shakes, unbelievably good! To go elsewhere, you will need a hire car or taxi except for your complimentary airport transfers.
We were also able to have a late checkout due to availability and we had a complimentary airport transfer with the Pura Villa's luxury passenger van.
Overall, a wonderful peaceful stay.

I stayed in a Pura Vida villa recently and had a brilliant time. The scenery was amazing and so peaceful, birds and water buffalos, lush green palm trees and rice paddies all around.
The villa was amazing, very spacious and stylish with a unique boutique feel, all grey and red. It was equipped with everything we possibly could have wanted and more - I never knew just how much I would enjoy a steam room scented with fresh lemongrass picked from the garden.
Breakfast was served by the pool each morning by the superb staff, after a swim in the full size private pool. Bliss.
The onsite management team arranged our airport pickup and recommended some lovely nearby beaches and great places to eat and see - not that we wanted to ever leave the villa really.
We will definitely be going back, it was a memorable trip and a perfect place to relax.

Room Tip: The master suite is huge, with its own private outside rain shower, magical.

We stayed in one of the three bed villas and would highly recommend this hotel if you want great living space for families, privacy and convenience... 5 minutes from the airport not that you ever hear planes...it's incredibly quiet and relaxed. Close to nai thon beach, better than the very close nai yang. Also 5 minutes from blue canyon country club if you are a golfer.

A lot if deft touches, salt water pool for instance. Very well appointed throughout. Owners Oliver and Jane are extremely helpful for anything and everything. Service is first class, and if you want a good dinner the cooks are great. There is a van onsite for guests use, but given area easier to hire a car.

We went to phuket for the first time and we stayed here in January 2012 for a family holiday. the whole experience was fantastic, the staff are really friendly and were very helpful in giving us information to enjoy our stay, they recommended local restaurants, beaches etc. The villas are beautiful, all with lush private gardens and swimming pool and BBQ. They are situated in a lovely tranquil area but very close to beaches. They have all your home from home comforts too.
we would definitely go back here, I can say it was the best family holiday we have had, we loved Phuket, the people and especially the accommodation, I would recommend anyone going to Phuket to stay at pura vida villas, the experience is unforgettable!

Room Tip: there are 2 and 3 bedroom villas, so whatever size you need. they are located close to each other an...

Wow, what can I say ? My wife and I are lost for words. We stumbled upon Puravida by chance as we were already in Phuket and looking for somewhere to stay with a difference. The owners are a lovely couple and both know Phuket inside out. They answered all our questions and provided us with everything that we needed when we asked. This is literally heaven on your doorstep.The rooms, decor,attention to detail and overall facilities are superb and are equally great for couples who want their privacy or for a family who want to have a great holiday together. The villas are very near the beach and only a few minutes away by car for those who feel the need to go. We however wanted to spend every moment that we could at Puravida.
Breakfast is provided and there is a fully fitted kitchen for those who want to cook. We had an in villa BBQ and the views at night with the villa's lights glistening over the swimming pool is something I will never forget. It was amazing to come straight out of the bedroom and dive into the pool. They even have outdoor showers in the bathrooms !. It seems the owners really know what they are doing. If I wrote about every wow feature of Puravida, it would ruin the surprise.
This is a very new project and great value for money. The only downside I can think of is that once word spreads on how great this place is, you will never get in as it will always be fully booked as there are only a few villas..Check it out as soon as you can..Thank you to Oliver and Jane ( Thai lady ) for a dream short break.
