About Patio Duplex
Offering luxurious leisure, the three-bedroom Patio Duplex residences in Malaiwana estate are simply decadent. Furnished with restrained elegance, these classy holiday homes offer all facilities to make your island vacation memorable.
Indoor-outdoor living is exemplified owing to the full-length glass doors that open up to reveal a mesmerising pool beyond. These villas are special due to their extensive use of outdoor areas for lounge seating. Enjoy a barbecue, catch a tan, shoot some hoops, or just sit back and enjoy the marvellous sunsets - the outdoor deck is the focal area of these residences.
Enjoy lovely partial sea views from their coveted hillside location at Naithon Beach or just walk down to the beach itself to get up, close and personal with the surf. The residences are built over two levels, with three bedrooms located upstairs and the fourth doubling up as a multi-purpose room.
Malaiwana is only 20-minutes away from Phuket Airport and within easy reach of several of Phuket’s top sights and leisure activities, including golf, spas and yacht charters. Throughout your stay, a team of staff including a talented Thai chef and an English-speaking manager will ensure your every need is catered to within the estate and beyond.
The Patio Duplex residences occupy the ground and first floors of the exclusive three-storey apartment buildings at Malaiwana. In each Patio Duplex, a central staircase connects three bedrooms on the upper floor to the open-plan living, dining and kitchen area. Floor-to-ceiling glass doors in the living room open onto the pool terrace, and a paved deck with garden views lies beyond. The Master and Mini Master suites on the top floor are sea-facing and enjoy lovely views from their balconies.
The open-plan living room is bright due to the abundance of natural light that flows in. It seamlessly flows into the dining area and kitchen, making it the social hub of the villa. Sliding glass doors open onto the pool terrace. A sleek and modern kitchen is smartly tucked into the rear of the dining room, where your personal chef prepares tempting treats and delicious Thai fare. Pleasing tropical views can be enjoyed from the plush sofas in the living room or elevated to partial sea views from the master bedrooms upstairs.
What sets the Patio Duplex apart is the feel of being surrounded by nature. With the sea twinkling beyond tropical greenery and lush garden views, these holiday homes offer visual respite to city dwellers. Enjoy these views from the pool terrace or a lovely seating area next to it. A step down, the vast patio is lined with lounge seating, ideal for sunset cocktails or a game of basketball. Meanwhile, the master suites upstairs boast soulful views from their balconies.
The Master Suite is located on the upper floor and has a lovely balcony with partial sea views. A spacious walk-in dressing area sets it apart, leading to a marble ensuite with a free-standing bathtub. Furnished with a king-size bed and a loveseat, and equipped with a flat-screen television, it is full of amenities.
Mini Master Suite
Sitting next to the Master Suite, the mini master is almost identical, save for a few changes. The room has a balcony too, with coffee table seating and lovely views. The king-size bed is complemented by lounge seating and the ensuite bathroom has an indulgent bathtub.
This generously sized room is located on the upper floor towards the back of the house. Private and restful, it has a sumptuous marble bathroom with a shower. Bed is set up as a king, and the room is well-appointed with a mirrored wardrobe, loveseat, and flat-screen television.
The multi-purpose room is located on the ground floor and has sliding glass doors that lead onto the pool terrace. The room has many uses and can be converted into a media room for movie nights, an office for when you need to work, and an extra bedroom for kids. The ensuite marble bathroom, wardrobe and TV offer added comforts.

Please feel free to discuss your group’s preferences with the manager. For example, just let the manager know whether you’d prefer staff to be visibly ‘front of house’, ready to attend to your every whim throughout the day, or if you’d prefer more privacy, with staff staying discreetly out of sight until you need them.
The English-speaking manager liaises with guests, and communicates their preferences to the chef and staff to ensure that everything is handled with smooth efficiency. An excellent source of local knowledge, the manager will be pleased to provide suggestions for sightseeing and dining out in Phuket, as well as assistance with tour and transport bookings.
