Experience

Dining

With its delicious mix of fragrant, spicy, sour, sweet and salty flavours, Thai cuisine is celebrated as one of the world’s best, and at the Duplex Residences at Malaiwana a full-time chef is on hand to take you on a journey of epicurean discovery.

As well as favourites such as tom yum goong (hot and sour, spicy prawn soup) and phad Thai goong yang (stir-fried rice noodle with tamarind sauce and grilled prawns), a suggestion menu offers some regional Thai specialties and introduces you to the extra fiery tastes of the South.  A choice of Western dishes and breakfast sets are also available, and the chef will accommodate special requests and dietary restrictions as far as possible – as well as adjusting spice levels to suit your preferences.

Meals are planned with the manager or chef in advance and grocery shopping is taken care of by the villa staff, who know their way around the markets and will source the best and freshest ingredients.  Groceries are charged at cost plus a 20% handling fee and a government tax, with receipts provided by the staff.

Families

The Duplex Residences at Malaiwana are perfectly set up for fabulous family holidays.  They make a luxurious and relaxing base for exploring Phuket’s many water sports, leisure activities and beautiful beaches, and the 15-metre pool is bound to be a hit with adults and children alike.

Families with young children will appreciate the flexibility of bed configuration in the two guest rooms that allows couples and kids to be accommodated easily.

There’s no need to take up precious packing space with children’s equipment when holidaying at Malaiwana.  Many items, including high chairs, baby cots and infant car seats, may be hired from local rental agencies – just let us know your requirements in advance. Babysitters can also be arranged if mums and dads fancy a child-free night out (extra charges apply).

The chef is open to adapt meals to your family’s needs and preferences, with even the pickiest eaters sure to be satisfied with some of the tasty choices available.  More adventurous eaters will have fun trying new tastes – there are plenty of Thai dishes that appeal to children, including chicken satay skewers, khai jiao (Thai omelette) and simple stir-fried rice.

Venturing out to the lovely Nai Thon Beach just minutes away offers more fun and adventure for families, with a whole kilometre of sand to dig your toes into and build castles with.  More leisure activities and sights including stand-up paddle rentals and hidden coves for snorkelling are just a short walk or drive away.  Check our Things to Do page for more family-fantastic ideas, and be sure to consult with your manager for local insights and help with booking transport and tours.

spa

With its incredible views and hideaway ambiance, the Duplex residences are the perfect spot for a replenishing spa treatment.  Be cooled by the tropical breezes while enjoying a poolside massage, or relax in the peace and privacy of your air-conditioned bedroom while your stresses and tensions are soothed away.

Browse the extensive spa menu to find a massage or beauty treatment to restore your body and mind, then ask the manager to arrange for a local therapist to attend.  Traditional Thai massage, aromatherapy massage, facials and manicures are just a few of the choices on offer (extra charges apply).

    This is my first travel with my ten person family. We have check lots of villa in Phuket and choose Malaiwana finally, we made a good decision. This villa is very nice and to enjoy the sea view and sun every day. At the night we drink under the sky with full stars - so romantic. My family ate and very satisfied with villa staffs - sweet service and loves the delicious food here. We have a perfect vocation in three days but want stay longer. Expecting to come here next time.

    The pictures I saw online were beautiful but when we got here, we were both blown away. You come up the stairs to the wall of windows over looking the Andaman Sea. To lounging in the pool watching the sun sink over the horizon is truly breath taking, to waking up in the morning to the crystal clear sea.This place is truly what dreams are made of. When you close your eyes and in vision paradise, you think of here. We can not thank you enough for the AMAZING hospitality. Anything we needed you provided with all of your kind smiles. We ask Lek to only cook Thai food and the food was absolutely delicious. We will see you soon, definitely will be back.

    We had a fantastic six days here, couldn’t have asked for a better staff. Everyone was friendly and even went above and beyond to make sure we weren’t ripped off by a street vendors. The chef is super knowledgeable and wonderful to interact with, just loved our time here.
