The Coolwater is a mountainside estate that overlooks the quiet and quaint Thai village of Kamala on Phuket's west coast. The wide sloped beach at Kamala is relatively peaceful year round. The water is clear and warm and the surf is typically gentle. It's a perfect place for swimming and relaxing. In the green season some good surf can be found on the northern end where tourists and locals enjoy the warm summer waves.
Each of The Coolwater's contemporary hilltop residences provides the privacy of its own infinity-edged swimming pool. Elevated decks surround the exterior passageways and pools that overlook either the Andaman Sea or Kamala’s towering jungle peaks.
The strikingly designed villas are set amongst lush tropical gardens. The finishes are modern, with many of the floor-to-ceiling windows doubling as sliding doors. You will enjoy both the tropical scenery and the cooling breezes that constantly whisper through the estate. Your view over the valley below is of swaying treetops, village scenes, and the sparkling Bay of Kamala. The setting is serene and the houses are stylish, with all the comforts of a home.
The five privately owned villas average well over 400 to 500 square meters, and have three to five bedrooms. They each have a western kitchen, luxurious bathrooms, a custom designed infinity edge pool, and a comfortable living/dining room. There is individually controlled air conditioning throughout.
The semi-detached wings of each residence border a central deck area with the swimming pool between them. This creates a very private space while maximizing views. Large external roof overhangs provide shelter and shade.
All homes are fully furnished and well appointed with linens, cutlery, crockery and glassware. Each villa is equipped with a satellite TV and CD/DVD/VCD player.
Service is provided by the on-site estate manager and her team of housekeepers, gardeners, and pool cleaners. The well-trained staff are discrete and take care to respect your privacy. A Thai chef can be hired on request to prepare an array of local cuisine or a more laid back seafood BBQ.
The villa is elevated above Kamala's village below and offers ocean and mountain views. The half-moon infinity pool is flanked by an entertainment deck and a private entrance to the main bedroom. A wading pool that includes a large underwater skylight allowing natural light through to one of the bedrooms.
This white-washed cement building is nestled into the hillside overlooking the Andaman Sea, from the village of Kamala. Walk from its driveway entrance up a few stairs to a sand-washed landing and find an infinity pool with 180-degree views.
At the top of The Coolwater's hillside acreage, this villa has the most expansive and unobstructed views of the northwest mountains surrounding Kamala. Wander up the stairs up from the steep driveway below, up to the sand-washed landing, and take in the half-moon infinity pool and surrounding jungle landscape.
Baan Mayom features the most private pool of all the villas. Elevated and embedded into the heights of the surrounding jungle, the half moon infinity swimming pool includes a drop from its edge down to nothing but the Thai jungle, as well as unobstructed views over to the surrounding mountains.
"Stayed here for 7 nights with two other friends. It's gorgeous, exactly as advertised! The patio/pool area is exquisite and the staff is very kind and kept the villa very clean. It was so much more private than a noisy hotel. We could cook if we wanted or have food delivered for an inexpensive fee. The setup of the home allows you to stay in the main area with your other guests or retreat to the privacy of your own room. Close walking distance to the beach. All pros and no cons for this traveler's first trip to Thailand."
"My family of 5 stayed here in January 2013. We particularly enjoyed the beautiful living area and swimming pool, which if anything, are nicer than the photos. My wife and I loved the Master bedroom and bath. The owner and the staff were very helpful and available. (The staff cleaned the home daily-an added plus!) Although taxis and tuk-tuks are ubiquitous, we found it more convenient and economical to rent a car, as the home is up a steep hill. There are many beaches to explore within 5 or 10 minutes from the home. Shopping and restaurants are close by. We loved our stay here. Thanks!"
"We initially stayed here for a week scouting out longer term housing for a longer term project in Thailand. After looking at a million different options, we ended up knowing we didn't want to leave the Coolwater. We stayed over two months all in all and the quality and support of the staff never waned. Everyone who stayed on our visit intends to come back and stay here again in the future. Couldn't speak highly enough about this place. Luxury, beauty and privacy from the second you step foot inside. Good for business, vacation or family."
