About Villa Rodnaya
Villa Rodnaya, a four-bedroom luxury retreat in the hills over Naithon Beach, is a showcase of modern design that extends a warm welcome to families and friends. A dazzling island escape awaits, with magical sea and sunset views over one of Phuket’s finest beaches, and a skilled team of staff to cater to your every need.
Rodnaya brings tropical holiday fantasies to life with its sparkling 18-metre pool overlooking the sea, expansive indoor and outdoor living areas, a kids’ playroom full of fun toys and games, and a chic and cosy media room. Peace of mind for families is also assured with the added safety of a protective fence around the pool and a stair gate.
Relax in royal style under the dramatic peaked roof of the plush master bedroom suite. Situated in a poolside pavilion, this grand bedroom is furnished with a king-size bed, has a double soaker tub in its ensuite bathroom, and views galore. The three king-bedded guest bedrooms are smaller but no less stylish with their sea-view balconies and private bathrooms.
Explore Thai cuisine and enjoy meals prepared with flair by your personal chef. Dine in air-conditioned grandeur at Rodnaya’s stately indoor dining room or relish the tropical breezes out on the dining terrace. The villa manager is on site to offer friendly assistance at the villa and help with your plans to explore the island.
Naithon is just nine kilometres from Phuket Airport, yet it retains the aura of an undiscovered beach with its kilometre-long stretch of soft white sand surrounded by forested parkland and a low-key village. Water sports include standup paddling and snorkelling, while vendors sprinkled along the beachfront sell Thai takeaway snacks and fruit. Phuket’s top sights and leisure activities including golf, yacht charters, beach clubs and fine dining are just a short drive away.
Rodnaya is a two-storey villa arranged on the hillside in two pavilions for optimal sea and sunset views. Entering the villa from the car park brings you into to the top floor of the large pavilion that houses an open-plan living and dining area, guest kitchen and chef’s kitchen. The master suite sits in a smaller pavilion connected to the living-dining pavilion via the kids’ playroom. Extending across the front of the top floor is the 18-metre pool and surrounding deck with panoramic views. A central staircase leads down to ground floor where the three guest bedrooms and media room are situated – all with sea-view balconies.
At the heart of Villa Rodnaya is an open-plan living and dining room that opens to the pool terrace; a place to gather and relax under the gorgeous arched roof. The living room’s soft sofas are positioned to take in the views, while the solid-wood dining table and its elegant red leather seats make every meal feel like a special occasion. A Bose audio system and built-in speakers both inside and out make it easy to set the mood. The modern guest kitchen and breakfast bar sit just behind the dining area, while the chef’s kitchen lies off to the side.
Adjacent to the living area is the colourful kids’ playroom with a good assortment of toys and games, while the media room downstairs offers more entertainment choices.
With its 18-metre pearl-toned marble pool and spectacular sea views, Villa Rodnaya’s terrace is a photo-perfect spot. The pool is protected by a fence of transparent panels that keeps toddlers safe while not obstructing the tropical views. Enjoy alfresco meals in the shade of the poolside dining sala or soak up the sun on one of the sunbeds that line the pool.
Found in its own pavilion at the edge of the pool terrace and featuring a majestic peaked ceiling, this bedroom is a romantic and private escape that will be coveted by couples. Relax on the four-poster king-size bed and enjoy the superb sea views, or simply slide open the doors to be the first in the pool. The ensuite bathroom is elegantly appointed in white marble with a double bathtub, while its proximity to the kids’ playroom, which includes a comfortable daybed, makes it possible to create a family suite.
Although these bedrooms are smaller than the master suite, each offers an ensuite bathroom and a balcony with sea views that will appeal to guests of all ages. All three bedrooms are furnished with king-size beds and mirrored wardrobes.
Guests at Malaiwana enjoy the exclusive care of a full-time manager, chef and housekeeping staff with flexible working hours. With this team’s blend of warm Thai hospitality and professional standards of service, a restful and well-pampered holiday is assured. 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.
The skilled chef prepares breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks according to guest requirements. Meals are prepared from a suggestion menu of mainly Thai and some western dishes, tailored to accommodate special dietary needs and guest preferences.
A team of staff handles daily housekeeping duties, as well as assisting the chef with kitchen and dining service.
Regular pool-cleaning and maintenance services are taken care of by a team of estate staff.
Estate staff keep Malaiwana safe and secure 24 hours a day.
Thai cuisine is celebrated the world over for its flavourful dishes, and Villa Rodnaya is the perfect place to explore Thai gastronomic delights under the talented direction of the in-villa chef. Adventurous eaters, children, and those who crave their favourite home-cooked foods are all catered to, with meals at Rodnaya fully customised to each guest’s preference.
Find Thai food, set breakfasts and western food in the villa’s suggestion menu, with an enticing selection of dishes including 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).
The chef and kitchen team take care of all the grocery shopping, and they know exactly where to find the freshest and best quality ingredients. Provisions are charged at cost 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.
Villa Rodnaya’s design elegance and magical views give every meal some added finesse whether dining in its vaulted-roof indoor dining area or on the breezy pool terrace.
With its tranquil setting and inspiring views, Villa Rodnaya is a fabulous venue for a restorative spa or beauty treatment. Ease the senses with a massage, manicure or other spa therapy in complete privacy in one of Rodnaya’s bedrooms or living areas, or enjoy the sea breezes with an outdoor treatment on the pool terrace.
To book your private villa spa session, simply browse the menu and then ask the villa manager to arrange it. Among the many treatments on offer are traditional Thai massage, oil massage, foot massages, body scrubs, pedicures and manicures.
Rodnaya was designed with families in mind and the villa brims with both playful and practical features for a worry-free and fun family holiday.
Having a private 18-metre pool to splash around in is sure to be a family highlight, and, rare for Phuket villas, it’s surrounded by fencing to keep the wee ones safe. The villa’s playroom is stocked with toys and games for air-conditioned fun, while the media room is a cosy place to gather for some cartoon or movie-watching sessions.
There’s no need to worry about travelling with cumbersome children’s equipment as the villa is well-equipped with a baby cot, changing table, safety stair gate, high chair, baby bath facilities and toilet trainer seat. Other items may be sourced from local rental agencies for a small extra fee – just let us know your requirements when making your villa reservation. Likewise, if you’re needing a night out during your stay, a reliable babysitting service can be arranged (extra charges apply).
Rodnaya’s modern guest kitchen and private chef make it easy to ensure the young ones are well fed. Kids can select from the villa menu, and the chef will adjust ingredients where necessary to make them child-friendly. Thai favourites such as chicken satay, mango sticky rice and pad Thai noodles provide a great opportunity to discover new tastes.
Though families staying at Rodnaya have plenty to enjoy within the villa, the soft sands of nearby Naithon beckon for beach adventures. Spend the day running around barefoot and building sandcastles on this uncrowded beach, or stop by one of the beachside food stands for a fresh coconut and some grilled Thai snacks. Kid-friendly water sports including snorkelling and stand-up paddling are available at the beach, while for more family activity ideas check our Things to Do page or consult with your villa manager.
