Villa Layout

Sawarin’s peak-roofed entrance foyer immediately sweeps you into the villa’s grandeur.

A guest kitchen and dining room and comfy living room flank the entrance foyer, while stretching out in front is the pool terrace with the widest sea views. In a pavillion set to the side of the main building are two king-bedded guest bedrooms. Four more guest bedrooms and two splendid master suites are situated below the living areas of the main building, all with expansive views over the cape. Along a ‘waterfall-wall’ corridor are the spa room, the media/games room and the gym. More steps take you down to an alfresco living area and the garden, which leads to the boathouse and beach.

Living Areas

Indoor living

Villa Sawarin has a generous mix of indoor spaces for lounging, entertaining and keeping active.

The villa’s central entrance foyer is its grandest and most formal space, with comfortable seating arranged under its vaulted ceiling. Adjacent is a living room with light, earthy tones and deep sofas and armchairs offering a cosy escape from the tropical heat. The dining room, with its soft lighting and grand table for 12 makes every meal feel like a special occasion, while the bright, modern guest kitchen and breakfast bar is well equipped.

The media/games room on the lower floor offers table tennis and the villa’s most elaborate TV entertainment unit, plus an inviting L-shaped leather sofa for cosy movie nights. Enjoy a holiday work-out in the gym, fitted with modern equipment, a TV and iPod dock plus sea views for inspiration. Or skip the workout and indulge in a restorative massage in the serene spa room.

Outdoor living

Entertain in style on Villa Sawarin’s wide terrace with its 24-metre lava-rock pool, outdoor sound system and gorgeous bay views.  The pool terrace is lined front and back with sunbeds, with a barbecue and 10-seat dining sala to one side.  Step down to the chic mezzanine level terrace and relax on sofas set on a platform above a reflecting pool.

The immaculately landscaped tropical gardens stretch down the hillside to the beach, with a portion of the lawn groomed into a putting green.  At the top of the garden is an open-air living room with stylish sofas and kitchen facilities perfect for taking in those bay views.  A garden path leads to the beachfront boathouse with its glass-enclosed living room, a kitchen and a large deck for early-morning yoga sessions.  Take the kayaks and paddleboards out for some coastal exploration, or simply stroll along the sand and watch long-tail fishing boats glide across the bay. 


Villa Sawarin’s six guest bedrooms and two master suites are each self-contained havens of privacy with air-conditioning, TVs, ensuite bathrooms, spacious wardrobes, safes and sea or garden views.  There’s ample flexibility for families and groups, with a choice of twin, queen and king-sized bed configurations, and two sets of connecting bedrooms. 

Master Suites 1 and 2

Found at each end of the main villa’s lower floor, the two ultra-private and ultra-spacious king-bedded master suites are arranged over split levels, with the beds, bathrooms, wardrobes and desks on the upper level and a relaxing sitting area below.  Sliding glass doors open to a garden patio for one master suite, while the other has a sea-view balcony; both have seating for two.  Lavish ensuite bathrooms feature freestanding terrazzo tubs, double vanity sets and rain showers.

Guest Suites, Orange and Green

Ideal for kids but perfectly fine for adults too, this pair of twin-bedded, sea-view guest suites have colourful cushioned alcoves built into the wall, where young guests can nap or read in peace.  The beds can be converted to king-size if preferred.  Ensuite bathrooms have double vanity sets and bathtubs with overhead showers.  Behind the bed is a long desk, while glass walls at the front slide open to a balcony.  Interior doors connect these rooms to guest suites 3 and 4.

Guest Suites 3 and 4

With each room connected to a “green” or “orange” twin-bedded room, these queen-bedded suites are ideal for parents or caretakers wanting easy access to their kids’ rooms.  Floor-to-ceiling glass doors offer fantastic sea views, but with no balcony they’re opened only to enjoy the tropical breezes.  The ensuite bathroom is fitted with a rainfall shower and single vanity.

Guest Villa, 2 Bedrooms

Found across a reflecting pool to the side of the main building is a separate pavilion housing two bedroom suites.  Each suite is identically furnished with a king-sized bed and a long desk area, with glass doors sliding open to a garden patio furnished with seating for two.  In the glass-enclosed ensuite bathroom is a rain shower and single vanity.  These rooms are perfect for couples or groups wanting some added privacy.

    We have stayed in the villa for two weeks, my family and I really spending time at the villa. The villa staff team are very good and friendly and the chef can cook very good Thai, Japanese and Western food (I want to bring him home). Tonight they surprised me with a birthday party, I have appreciated all your work and care, we will definitely come back. Thank you.

    Thank you for your hospitality. We all had the most pleasant stay during these few days. Weather treated us nicely for good sunshine and rain to keep us cool. I think Gilbert and Phan made a record for proposal at this villa. Hope more beautiful and romantic proposals will be made here.

    An amazing villa. The staff went above and beyond their call of duty to ensure everyone had a wonderful experience. In my opinion, they are one of the staff we have encountered in our many years of travel to Thailand. Thank you! We look forward to coming back again.

    Thank you so much for everything you guys did. This was one of the best trips I have ever been on. Everyone was so nice and I don't want to leave!

This will be a trip to remember forever! This house is also the most beautiful house I have ever visit! I'm going to miss everyone and one day you should all come and visit Canada!

    Thank you for the warmest hospitality during our stay here. Khun Ex and Khun Ake led an amazing service team, caring for all our needs and offering help whenever we needed. Chef Por was amazing and his cooking can easily beat many of the best restaurants in Phuket. The physical state of the villa and the rooms were also good. Overall, a very enjoyable holiday experience for our family of 16 (that consisted of children ages 4, 7, 10, 12, 17, 18, to 85 yrs. old adults). Thank you.

Villa Sawarin – Fully staffed 8 bedroom luxury villa on Cape Yamu, Phuket Elite Havens

With its awe-inspiring design and serene hilltop setting, Villa Sawarin is an exquisite holiday escape and an ideal base for discovering the lesser-known charms of Phuket’s magnificent east coast.

One of 17 luxury residences in The Cape, an elegant private community on Cape Yamu, Villa Sawarin is a large and lavish retreat.  The villa’s eight bedrooms and gorgeous living areas are spread over three levels and acres of landscaped gardens leading down to the beach.  Views across Phang Nga Bay are breathtaking, especially when the sea and sky are bathed in golden light at sunrise.

Groups and families will relish Villa Sawarin’s extensive facilities, which include a gym, games and media room, dining room with guest kitchen, spa, putting green and boathouse with a yoga deck, kayaks and stand-up paddleboards.  Reflecting its location on the doorstep of Phuket’s marine delights, Sawarin’s beauty and tranquillity are enhanced by carefully designed water features throughout.  Along with its dreamy 24-metre lava-rock swimming pool are reflecting pools and a waterfall wall.

Thoughtful and generous design extends throughout the villa, conceived by an acclaimed design team that includes Philippe Starck and architect Jean-Michel Gathy – best known for his iconic Aman resort designs. Sawarin’s style is contemporary and deceptively simple with calming tones and no superfluous adornments.  The villa’s drama and dazzle come from effective use of space and light, best showcased by its vaulted-roof entrance hall with floor-to-ceiling metal panels of intricate design and its glass-fronted exterior that glitters in the morning sunlight.  The collection of art, including Thai temple spire pieces rising from the waterfall pool and large bronze sculptures, make bold statements without distraction. Interior walls are mostly unadorned, allowing their beautiful textures to shine through.  

Service is also generous here with a full-time, friendly team of staff including a talented Thai chef and a manager who will assist with all aspects of your stay within the villa and beyond.  Villa Sawarin guests also enjoy access to facilities within The Cape estate, including a tennis court, kids club, fitness centre and the private beach club of Point Yamu by COMO resort at a nominal fee.  Whether you’re seeking a restorative holiday retreat or an opulent venue to celebrate with friends and family, Villa Sawarin is the ultimate destination.
