Andaman Sea Penthouse OR Groundfloor Condo Villa (for Romantics or Families)

Bedrooms 3
Separate WC's1
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 2 - 14 nights


Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday condo in Bangtao beach - Chom Tawan

Avoid crowded beaches and seediness down south - instead, relax at Bang Tao

Along the stretch of road known as ‘Millionaire’s Mile”, within a small mixed condo/villa estate, you can choose one of three units. Either our unique 527 sq metre 3 ensuite bedroom PENTHOUSE 'Villa in the Sky' with 3 entertainment terraces surrounding your private same-level 17.5 metre pool; OR the 243 sq metre 3 ensuite bedroom SERENE condo villa underneath the penthouse, OR our 243 sq metre ground floor 3 ensuite bedroom POOLSIDE condo villa (next to 25m adult pool, separate children's wading pool, and sala with lounge chairs and tables). With teak wood floors, wood paneled interiors, ceiling fans (air conditioners as well, should the air flow across all the sliding doors be insufficient), king/queen beds, large en suite terrazzo bathrooms (spa tub, fitness room, study in PH), spacious living and dining rooms, fully equipped European kitchen, all furnished in modern Thai style with regional accents, you may never want to go outside. Shame, as just outside the gates beacons pristine Bang Tao beach (absent of the rows upon rows of crowded umbrellas and chairs one finds from Surin beach going south).

PENTHOUSE Villa in the Sky: A premium 3 BR all ensuite accomodation as rarely can you find a 17.5 metre pool on the same level as the rest of a penthouse - but here it is. With views out to the Andaman Sea (and fireworks from nearby hotels), the pool is surround by a 20 metre long lower sun terrace, a sofa terrace on the east side, and a 10 seater dining terrace (with BBQ and drinks fridge) on the west side. The master bedroom with outsdoor spa tub bathroom faces over the pool with views of tropical foilage. The seaside ensuite bedroom has sliding doors on two sides of the room facing toward the Andaman sea and the common pool area. The living room with large flat screen TV faces over the pool with the dining room at the other end. The fully equipped kitchen is inclusive of wine fridge. A fitness room with weights completes what is a special residence.

POOLSIDE CONDO VILLA: The best located condo villa in the Chom Tawan estate being steps away from the 25 metre adult and separate children's pool making it feel like a private pool, particularly as outside of Christmas/New Years, most owners in the estate are working elsewhere in Asia. With terra cotta terraces on three sides, you have views of the pool (which looks magical with the lights at night) from the master bedroom, poolside bedroom, and living room. The outdoor dining terrace faces toward the Andaman Sea and enjoys a massive well protected open grass area in front of it. Inside, there are accents from our multi-week driving trip throughout Thailand. It does not get much better than this!

SERENE CONDO VILLA: Finally, we have our third unit with similar layout as the POOLSIDE CONDO VILLA but located underneath our penthouse on the 3rd floor, with balconies all around overlooking the Banyan Tree land.

About Gordon or Jenny

My wife (British-South African) and I (Australian-Canadian) reside in Hong Kong although we did live in the penthouse for two years on 'semi-retirement' while we set up and furnished all three of our places in Phuket. They were set up as homes rather than simply rental units so our friends and guests could truly enjoy themselves. We occasionally get back to paradise but do have to work a few more years before we can truly retire.

Why Gordon or Jenny chose Bangtao beach

The square footage/meterage of your accommodation is unusually large giving you space to feel comfortable as well as decorated and kitted out to live in (rather than the minimal utensils one often finds in rental accommodations). The tropical foliage and landscaping is amazing. You will not need to rush out to claim your chair by the pool (or one of the chairs in the rows on the beach) as the estate is not overpacked with hotel rooms and other than Christmas, are more than a dozen owners around.

What makes this condo unique

One does not appreciate having the upmarket resorts around us as they make sure the beaches are kept clean and not overrun (until one goes further south and sees Surin,Patong, Karon, Kata, etc which party animals seem to like - we do not). Paradise should be about tropical foliage, pristine beaches, and sounds of birds and waves rather than concrete, hawkers, and motors of jet-skis.

Outstanding luxury penthouse in perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

We had the most marvellous stay in Gordon and Jenny's fabulous apartment. This penthouse is true high end luxury located in the best position in the probably the best located complex in phuket. The penthouse is beautifully furnished with artwork and sculptures and polished teak flooring. The pool in the penthouse is crystal clear as is the wonderful shared pool. No trouble bagging a sunlounger as we rarely had to share the 25 metre pool with anyone else. We swam in starlight most evenings. The position of the penthouse backing onto gently swaying trees is peaceful and the most private of the complex. It was very safe and secure with friendly security on the gate.The beds were very comfortable and the kitchen better equipped than home. Birthday cake making no problem which thrilled my 8 year old.Gordon and Jenny provided lots of invaluable information on how to get the best from the area. We were able to stroll out to the completely unspoilt beach in 5 minutes and enjoy many foot in the sand thai restaurants for a few pounds. I had 5 massages during our 2 week stay. Chom Tawan is perfectly placed being minutes from fabulous restaurants, western supermarkets and beaches and a world away from the noisy seedy resorts found further south. When we first arrived at the penthouse it almost seemed too swanky vast and gorgeous for a family holiday. I needn't have worried. We settled in just fine. Only problem is we have been spoilt for all our holidays yet to come!

Beautiful relaxing place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We loved to stay at the penthouse. It is a beautiful place in a relaxing surrounding. Close to the beach and also not far away from local restaurants. We loved to go for a drink to the Gaia Bar which is located at the beach just outside of Chom Tawan.

We will come back for sure!

A superb holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent holiday staying at Chom Tawan, Bang Tao beach. Gordon the owner was a pleasure to deal with and provided us with plenty of information. The condo is exceptional and generously sized. The beach just a few minutes walk away. to get to the beach walk out of the complex and turn right onto the beach road a couple of hundred metres down the road you will see some huts on the left on the beach front. Just walk down there and have a dip. There is a tiny little drink kiosk run by a very helpful you chap who lent us a boogie board, event though we weren't buying drinks. Lovely place to watch the sunset. The pool inside the complex is great as well.

Down the beach are a whole range of good restaurants - if you ring them they will come and pick you up. The seafood is superb.

We did lots of day trips to waterfalls, the Indigo Pearl Brunch, one to Phuket etc.

The drive up to Indigo Pearl along the beach front and in the hills above the ocean is absolutely stunning.

The driver who took us on these trips was Nop or Mr Nop as we called him and the owner can put you in touch. He speaks English and carries on a most enjoyable conversation as you drive. if you have a clear day trip in mind he will give you a fixed price. Sometimes our trips ended up lasting considerably longer than anticipated. He wanted to stick to his quote, which was too generous so we had to give him a good tip. Just let him know a day ahead and he can plan you into his day.

It is a little out of the way but that is a good thing. It's a peaceful relaxing location and you can get a taxi easily enough when you need.

There are phone numbers in the drawer in the lounge room for home delivery dinners which can be handy when you just want to chill out after a big day.

Fantasea cultural theme park may seem a bit gaudy but if you have children its great. The show is the highlight with acrobats, elephants, chickens and just about anything you could imagine.

A cleaner came every second day. She was most helpful and could speak reasonable English.

Overall Chom Tawan is a fantastic place for a holiday. Thoroughly recommended.

Tip - Take extra care regarding hygiene if you take children out on the cruise to James Bond island as the boats involved carry so many people with all the food, little refrigeration and the heat you can pick up tummy bugs. Give your children proper advice about hygiene to minimise the chance of gastroenteritis.

Amazing penthouse

  • 5 of 5

This property is absolutely stunning. I was in a party of four and we stayed for 10 days in November 2012. The penthouse is true to the description on the website so there should be no surprises when you arrive. Note: the office is the third bedroom so you'll be on a pullout full-size sofa. The bedrooms are comfortable and the common spaces are spacious and well appointed. We cooked every day and night so the kitchen was used constantly with very little complaints. The pool was exactly what we needed on those hot days and it was cleaned every other day without fail. The beach is stunning and is a good 5 minute walk away from the unit. The small beach front restaurant to the right as you approach the water has the best Tom Yum soup I've ever tasted; I recommend going at least once during your stay. The beach is relatively quiet and was never crowded - sometimes I thought I had it all to myself.

The property management staff was always available for us to book taxi's, excursions, and maintain the unit while we were there. They were courteous and helpful during our entire stay.

I went to Thailand to have a restful and relaxing 10 days near the water and I got exactly that. I highly recommend this property for small groups of no more than 4 adults or less. Without a doubt I'm staying here the next time I'm in the country.

Wonderful property, gorgeous location.

  • 5 of 5

We have recently returned from the most wonderful ‘Dream Phuket’ holiday, having spent 10 days over Christmas & New Year in the Poolside Condo at the Chom Tawan Estate on Bangtao beach. Gordon made the whole process of booking very easy, with prompt, helpful and regular email contact from the initial booking, through to sending over the payment and the final arrangements.

The Villa is better than described, it is very large, so comfortable, well equipped and really beautifully furnished, all to a very high standard. The gated security protected estate of Chom Tawan is kept immaculately and the management are always on hand to help with anything. The added bonus of a 25m pool (which is hardly ever used) literally just outside. Bangtao Beach is stunning and just a short stroll across the road. Here we found everything we needed, amazing choice of bars, restaurants and the people, food & service were always great. The Laguna area is a little further along the bay but still walkable and here they have everything you need including a baby elephant who will give you a kiss if you ask nicely!

The beach by the villa is far nicer than the area nearer to Bangtao, however you do need to be aware that things are a short walk or taxi ride away. Many, if not all the local restaurants offer a shuttle service which was invaluable especially on the way home at night. We managed very well this way, but when we go back again which we really hope to, we would have a car, simply for easier access to the supermarkets & shops and perhaps a little bit of exploring.

New Years evening on the beach was a spectacular event, we will never forget it or possible ever better it, the 3 mile stretch of beach was full of the most amazing firework displays and the sky full of chinese lanterns with all the bars going out of their way to make sure you enjoy the evening.

We travelled with our teenage children and we all had the best most relaxing & fun holiday ever. I have never known my husband to relax into a holiday so easily and have such an amazing time and for that, we thank you.

Bang Tao/Layan Beach is only 100 meters away inviting you to swim in the waves, stroll an hour or so along its 6 km shores (absent of rows upon rows of umbrellas one finds on the packaged tour beaches from Surin beach on down south), enjoy a Thai beach massage, or indulge in fresh lobster and a pina colada at one of the many hotel / beach restaurants (including Niki Beach Club or Tony's Beach Restaurant). Or perhaps wander up the road to play a round of golf, hit a few tennis balls, take a pontoon through the canals of Laguna Resort, shop in canal village, horseback ride among the tropical trees, or romance with a high end spa and meal at Banyan Tree/Sheraton/Dusit/Laguna Beach resorts. Venturing further you can scuba dive, sail the Andaman Sea/Phang Nga Bay, kayak caverns, white water raft, elephant ride, shop at Phuket Central Festival, be entertained by the Phuket Fantasea carnival/show, marvel at the Stunt Man Show, or dine at the endless restaurants on the island. If you return to your well appointed accommodation early, you may watch the nearby fireworks

Other Activities: Resort Spa or Thai beach massages. Indulge in fresh lobster and a pina colada at a beach restaurant!

Golf: Right next door is the immaculate and well manicured 18 hole Laguna Phuket golf course (within the gates of Banyan Tree Resort) previously used for the Thai Golf Open. Non-members are welcome but recommended booking tee times a few days in advance as it is a popular course. See http://www.lagunaphuketgolf.com/

About 20 minutes away is the Blue Canyon golf course with two 18 hole courses. There are three additional golf courses elsewhere on the island.
