The Pines is situated on the unspoiled sands of Natai Beach and boasts a significant 50-60 metres of beachfront with no immediate neighbours. This gives it a sense of complete privacy and seclusion, rare to find in Phuket. The 25-minute journey from the airport to the villa crosses the bridge that connects the mainland to the island. The route passes through charming palm-fringed local villages, offering you a glimpse of the traditional way of life.
A stroll along the beachfront brings you to the jetty. Head here early in the morning to view local fishermen in action. Atleenta Resort and Iniala Beach House are both close by and offer alternative dining options, if you wish for a change of scenery. A dream come true for nature lovers, waterfalls, hot springs and beautiful forest trails wait to be explored inside Ao Phang Nga National Park.

Things to Do
Tear yourself away from the villa, however hard it may be, to explore this exotic destination. The Elite Concierge will be happy to share recommendations, help you plan itineraries and make necessary arrangements for you to discover Phuket’s treasures. Here’s a sneak peek at what lies in store:
Visit a nearby hot spring for a relaxing soak in its healing thermal waters.
Go for a bicycle ride along the coast road through banana plantations and coconut groves, take photos of the grazing buffaloes, and get a taste of unpretentious Thai life.
Take a dip in the cool waters of the surrounding waterfalls and trek through the forests at Phang Nga National Park. With 400sq km of scenic landscape and waterways to discover, you can spend as much time here as you wish.
Ask the Elite Concierge to hire a longtail boat for the day and explore the dramatic, towering limestone islands and hidden lagoons of Phang Nga Bay. Or you could opt for a luxury yacht charter instead, and explore the area in style.
Relish a fresh seafood barbecue with your toes between the sands. Prepared especially for you and served by the villa staff right on the beach.
Visit Baba Beach Club for a fun night out and rub shoulders with DJs, artists, and an eclectic, happening crowd.
Try local seafood at the beachfront restaurants as you watch the sun go down. Or take a short walk up to the nearby five-star Iniala Beach House and Aleenta Resort and indulge in a memorable journey of Asian flavours.
Tee off at one of Phuket’s international golf courses. The esteemed Blue Canyon Country Club with two 18-hole courses is just 23km away, complete with a spa and clubhouse facilities.
Spend a day with the gentle mammals at the ethical Phuket Elephant Sanctuary, a home for retired working elephants set on 30 acres of jungle.
Be sure to drop into the Gibbon Rehabilitation Project close to Bang Pae Waterfall, a rescue and release centre for neglected gibbons.
Go south into Phuket and walk through the alleys of Phuket Old Town. Colourful Sino-Portuguese shophouses house an eclectic mix of Thai restaurants, markets, coffee shops and boutiques. Marvel at murals found on every street corner and visit a Chinese shrine if time allows. The Sunday late afternoon/early evening market is also worth a visit.
Book a scuba diving or snorkelling trip at Similan Islands by getting in touch with the Elite Concierge. Discover the wonderful white beaches and colourful marine life hidden underwater (open only between October and May).
