Experience

Dining

With its stellar kitchen and personal chef at your service, dining is a delight at the Penthouse Residences at Malaiwana.  Specialising in Thai cuisine, the chef is available to prepare all meals, from light healthy breakfasts to seafood barbecue feasts.  Dine indoors in air-conditioned comfort or enjoy a relaxed meal on the pool terrace, cooled by the sea breezes.

The villa’s suggestion menu brims with a tasty array of Thai dishes, set breakfasts and a selection of Western dishes.  Highlights include tom kha gai (delicious chicken soup made with coconut milk and fragrant galangal); gaeng phed ped yang (red curry with roasted duck); pla thod ta rod (crispy sea bass with five-flavour sauce), and the chef’s specialty Gaeng ka ree nue fak tong (beef tenderloin and pumpkin in Thai yellow curry).

Meals are charged at the cost of provisions plus a 20% handling fee and a government tax, and guests are requested to provide cash to cover groceries in advance.  The staff will keep receipts for reference when settling the bills.

Families

With a thoughtful design balancing private and shared spaces, and the inviting sands of Nai Thon Beach just minutes away, the Penthouse Residences at Malaiwana are ideal for a peaceful and relaxing family break.  The cheerful, modern interiors that connect fully to the gorgeous tropical setting will appeal to children while older guests will relish the chic comforts.  The Penthouse’s 20-metre-long private pool is the largest within the Malaiwana residences, its glittering expanse just waiting for families to dive in and enjoy.  Young children will need to be watched closely around the pool, however, as there’s no safety fence.

The Penthouses are ideally suited for multi-generational families. A lift effortlessly whisks guests up to their top-floor hideaway, and all four bedrooms have sumptuous ensuite bathrooms and enough space and amenities for guests of any age to enjoy.  Couples will covet the huge king-bedded master suites, while the guest bedrooms offer flexibility with twin beds that can be zipped together to make a king-sized bed.  In the cosy media room, the sofas convert to twin beds to accommodate two more guests.  

Children’s equipment can be hired from a local agency at a reasonable cost. Just let us know your family’s needs in advance and we will be happy to organise this for you.  Babysitters can also be arranged if mums and dads fancy a child-free night out (extra charges apply).  

The staff’s attentive service extends to children as well.  The chef can accommodate special requests and will happily recommend kid-friendly dishes to introduce young gastronomes to the delights of Thai cuisine.

Nai Thon Beach is popular with families and Phuket has a wealth of leisure activities and sights for fun-filled days.  Check our Things to Do page for more ideas, and be sure to ask the staff which attractions they’d recommend for kids itching to explore.

spa

Breathtaking views and a peaceful ambiance make the Penthouse Residences at Malaiwana an ideal setting to enjoy a revitalising spa session.  The pool terrace offers plenty of space for a sea-breeze-cooled massage, or escape to one of the bedrooms for a private treatment in air-conditioned comfort.

Your manager will be happy to arrange for one of Phuket’s skilled spa and beauty specialists to attend you at the Penthouse.  Browse the spa menu and choose from one of the many relaxing treatments on offer, including traditional Thai massage, aromatherapy massage, body scrubs, pedicures and manicures.

    We loved our time here and the hospitality was just amazing. The villa is so beautiful and the pool was so much fun. Our family had the best time and would love to come back to the Malaiwana residences. Will never forgot the service and the smiling faces of all the staff.
