To ensure that your every desire is met, hiring a private villa in the seclusion of Phuket’s West Coast is the ideal way to experience Kamala’s stunning landscape in ‘the finest villas in Phuket’.

An array of internationally acclaimed properties spread across the gated community of the Millionaire’s Mile promises that visitors can expect nothing but exceptional accommodation, but finding privacy at the precise point where the jungle-greenery meets the ocean is an exclusive trait of Villa Aye.

With panoramic views of the Andaman Sea across a generous 2500 square metres of land, guests have enough space to relax without leaving the premises: whether it’s in the infinity pool overlooking pink skies, reading in the library or unwinding in one of the eight spacious bedrooms.

The jewel of this location’s plentiful crown is, undeniably, its crystal-clear ocean view. Visible from almost any room in the house, the hilltop, eastern-facing location exposes guests to boiling sunlight under clear skies, particularly from the cool waters of the infinity pool, built with sunset-spotting in mind.

Both table and pool service is also offered by on-site staff members so that all visitors are able to admire the outstanding backdrop without lifting a finger and revel in a feast of traditional Thai cuisine.
