Villa Sawarin - Entertainment room stunning view

Villa Experience


One of the main advantages of staying in a villa is having the personalised service of a dedicated team of staff.  The team at Sawarin are experienced professionals who offer warm and attentive Thai hospitality at its best.

Villa manager

Sawarin’s full-time manager and concierge is on hand to help plan and arrange dining and service requirements and ensure that guests have everything they need.  He is supported by the long-serving house manager, and stays on-site throughout your stay.


Sawarin’s talented chef prepares meals from the villa’s suggestion menu of Thai and Western dishes, and is pleased to discuss special requests and dietary requirements.  The chef and service staff handle all the shopping as well as the preparation of breakfast, lunch and dinner.


Two housekeepers take care of all the cleaning and tidying duties at the villa, and assist the chef with kitchen and dining services.

Pool & Garden

The villa’s pool is cleaned three times a week and the gardens are serviced daily.


Ask your villa manager to arrange for a masseuse or beauty practitioner to administer a restorative massage or other treatment in Villa Sawarin’s private spa room (extra charges apply).


Estate security staff work on rotating shifts 24 hours a day.


Dining is a true delight at Villa Sawarin with its custom-designed menu brimming with a range of Thai and Western dishes, as well as a wine menu.

Having a personal chef offers an excellent chance to explore Thai cuisine, and many guests have enjoyed lingering in the chef’s kitchen to learn his techniques. Ask the chef for his recommendations and be sure to advise him of any particular taste preferences or dietary restrictions.

All groceries and beverages are charged at market price plus a 20% provision fee and 7% VAT. Guests will be asked to provide money for groceries upfront, and the staff will do the shopping and keep the receipts for reference. To ensure the chef and staff have ample time to prepare, guests are encouraged to plan meals at least a day or two in advance.


With so much space and such a great range of activities and facilities, Sawarin is a fantastic retreat for families.

Indoor entertainment includes flat-screen TVs in every bedroom and most living areas, and a comfy games room with table tennis and a home theatre system.  Those who love the outdoors will enjoy exploring Sawarin’s extensive gardens and honing their golf skills on the villa’s putting green.

Cape Yamu’s shallow tidal bay may not be the best for swimming but the sand-flats and rocky shoreline are fun for sandcastle building and beachcombing.  Or take the sea kayaks and stand-up paddleboards out to explore the lush coastline.  Back up at the villa, the 24-metre pool offers plenty of space for the whole family to enjoy, with pool toys provided.  Young children and toddlers will need to be watched closely though, since the pool is deep and lacks a safety fence.  

The villa’s eight ensuite bedrooms are well designed to accommodate the varying needs of families, with two sets of connected bedrooms and a choice of twin, queen and king-sized beds – and kids will love the colourful built-in alcove lounging seats in the “green” and “orange” bedrooms.

Travelling with children’s equipment can be cumbersome so be sure to ask for our help in arranging to hire car seats, high chairs, baby cots or any other item you might need, all available for a small extra charge. 

Having a dedicated team of staff including a chef on hand all day is another benefit for families at Villa Sawarin. The villa’s menu has several child-friendly choices and its modern guest kitchen makes planning and preparing meals for even the pickiest eaters a breeze.

Beyond the villa, families will also enjoy use of the facilities within The Cape estate and the nearby Point Yamu by COMO resort, including a tennis court, kids’ club and fitness centre, plus the resort’s private beach club just minutes away by boat on Naka Yai island at a nominal fee. For further exploration, be sure to check our Things to do page for more ideas, or ask your villa manager about the many family-friendly attractions around the island.


With its tranquil and beautifully appointed spa room, a massage or beauty session is a must at Villa Sawarin.  Browse the villa’s spa menu and choose from a number of treatments including a revitalising Thai massage or a soothing oil massage, or perhaps you’d like to treat yourself to a poolside pedicure with a view.  All treatments are carried out by professional local practitioners vetted by our villa team.

Traditional Thai massage

A healing technique that will leave you energised, traditional Thai massage combines stretching, manipulations and rhythmic compressions to stimulate flow along the ‘meridians’ of the body without using oil.

Aromatherapy massage

A therapeutic, holistic massage technique that uses blends of essential oils customised to each individual’s personal needs.


Give your hands and feet a deserving treat with a manicure or pedicure, with the added bonus of a hand or foot massage.  Our nail spa uses OPI Nails Lacquer for long-lasting shine and colour.

    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 – luxury 8 bedroom at 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.
