THE COOLWATER

tropical living in phuket, thailand

Private luxury villas located in beautiful Kamala Beach on Phuket Island - in Thailand, the Land of Smiles.

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.

BOOK YOUR STAY

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.

what our guests say...

beautiful villa!

"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."

comfortable and elegant

"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!"

amazing villa in the hills with incredible staff!

"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."

very nice as advertised

"Stayed here for 2 nights in mid Jan. The house was exactly what we expected. The staff was helpful, and everything was clean and orderly. I would recommend on planning to rent moto scooters to get to town, as the hike up the hill might be a bit much for some. The owner  was great in helping get the home booked, great communication. I would definitely recommend this property if you're going to Phuket."

tropical paradise, modern yet comfortable

"We had a 5 day stay at this beautiful villa. We were two families both with young kids and it was great to have the luxurious rooms within the quiet of the jungle. What a treat. The beach is nearby but far enough away that you can enjoy the tranquility of the setting. Great shops and places to eat (and order in from) and a beautiful view of the ocean from your hilltop deck. I would definitely recommend this villa. The rooms were large and well decorated with a modern feel but very comfortable. It was nice to have the full kitchen and we loved the outdoor bathtub!!! We will definitely be back."
