Things To do

Malaiwana - Location

Though it may be tempting to spend your entire holiday in cossetted comfort, Malaiwana also makes a great base for exploring Phuket’s quieter northern coastline and interior.  With your villa manager’s help, bookings and transport to the island’s top leisure activities and sights can be easily arranged. Here’s a selection of some of the activities on offer beyond Malaiwana: 

  1. Hop on a stand-up paddle board at Nai Thon Beach and explore the coves and beaches of Phuket’s rugged northern coastline.  Make a stop at the tiny Banana Beach for a refreshing drink and snorkel session.
  2. Indulge in a Sunday brunch or romantic sunset dinner at Trisara resort.
  3. Enjoy a solitary stroll along Mai Khao Beach, the most northern and isolated beach on Phuket, or try a surf or kiteboarding session at Nai Yang Beach. 
  4. Head east and discover Phuket’s lush interior on a jungle trek to the waterfalls at Khao Phra Thaeo National Park, and be sure to say hello to the inhabitants of the Gibbon Rehabilitation Project at the park entrance.  At the Phuket Elephant Sanctuary, which is in the same area, visitors can observe elephants rescued from the tourist trade.
  5. The Andaman Sea beckons with spectacular scenery and rich marine life, best explored aboard a chartered luxury yacht or on a snorkel or scuba diving trip.  Glide past the towering karsts of Phang Nga Bay, swim with the colourful fish off Raya island, soak up the sun on the brilliant white sands of Koh Hong, and more.    
  6. Take some time to restore your body and mind during a day of pampering and luxury at the fabulous Banyan Tree Spa, or go for a simple yet invigorating Thai massage session right on the beach.
  7. Delve into Phuket’s rich culture and history with a walking tour of the Old Town, its streets lined with colourful Sino-Portuguese shophouses and some of the island’s best local eats.
  8. Discover the secrets of delicious Thai cuisine at a cookery class, which often includes a visit to a local market to shop for fresh ingredients. 
  9. Play a round or two at one of the island’s scenic golf courses including Laguna Golf Club with lagoons and mountain views and the Nicklaus-designed Mission Hills with stunning ocean views.
  10. Add some dazzle and upbeat DJ music to your seaside sundowner at one of Phuket’s beach clubs. Try Dream Beach Club at Layan Beach or Catch Beach Club at Bang Tao.

    Absolutely amazing property with breathtaking views and staff is very welcoming, friendly, polite and efficient. Along with my family members, the staff participated and went out of their way to make my 60th birthday a memorable event. Thank you very much for a fantastic vocation. The food was exceptionally delicious and the presentation was suburb.

    Blown away by the view the moment we walked in. The pool is amazing and has a great view of the sunset. Service of the staff is top notch. The in house chef/cook makes amazing food and we barely needed to go out and eat. The decor of the villa was great, loved all the facilities the villa provided.

    We have been fortunate to visit such beautiful places in the world and Villa M with its views and location is definitely one of them. Its designed and furnished so well - you walk in and it takes your breath away. The cherry on the cake is being served by the lovely bunch - staff showing us great hospitality. Wah Wah our manager with her team - Cherry, Meaow... such lovely smiley, kind, helpful people. No wish was left unfulfilled and the meals prepared by lucky was Thai cuisine at its finest. We are definitely coming back to Villa M and sooner the better.
