With its breath-taking scenery and empty swathes of golden sand, Natai Beach in Phang Nga makes the perfect haven for rejuvenation. And the pristine natural idyll now comes with all the comforts of home thanks to a new cluster of beach villas courtesy of Ideas 1606 ltd.
“Veyla Natai Residences is a boon to people looking to spend quality time with their family,” says Prapavadee Sophonpanich, who founded the luxury property developer in 2008.
“Named after the Sanskrit for ‘beachfront villa’, the Veyla project invites residents to ‘Craft Your Digital Life’ with a blend of soothing natural surroundings and sophisticated modern living,” she adds.
“The combination makes Veyla Natai Residences a great place to holiday,” gushes Prapavadee, whose popular Veyla Khao Tao Residences (2009) in Hua Hin, and Veyla Cha Am Residences (2015) just up the road, are both commercial successes.
The new project taps an ecologically diverse locale in Phang Nga blessed with a clean sandy beach, mangrove forest and tropical rainforest, and located just 30 minutes’ drive from Phuket Airport.
Veyla Natai Residences encompasses 15 luxury villas scattered across a 5.8-rai beachside plot. They come in two designs. Veyla Beach villas boast two storeys overlooking the Andaman Sea with a footprint of 725-780 square metres. Total usable space of 615 sqm harbours three bedrooms, three bathrooms, living, dining and pantry spaces, a private swimming pool, a terrace, a sky bridge and a moon deck.
Veyla Sea villas offers three storeys with sea view, a 361-374sqm footprint and 585sqm of usable space comprising three bedrooms, three bathrooms, living, dining and pantry spaces, a second-floor swimming pool, a terrace and a “Secret Garden”.
Elsewhere the 530sqm common area known as the Veyla Sand has a 25-metre swimming pool with a jacuzzi, a Moon Deck, fitness centre, outdoor cinema, sun deck, outdoor lounge, and DJ station. Served up at the food zone is the Chef’s Table, kitchen & bar, fine sunken dining and The Hidden Bar.
The villas are design and fitted out by Architects 49 House Design Co, with Sanitas Studio responsible for the landscape. The project is scheduled for completion by the end of 2020.
Among customers who’ve already signed up is Vasu Surattiantra, founder of Panpuri Wellness.
“I travel to Phuket frequently so I have been to Natai Beach a few times. It is very beautiful, clean and peaceful – perfect for a vacation home,” he explains.
Another, Varavuth Jentanakul, already owns a pad at Veyla Cha-Am in Phetburi.
“I like its unique design, which is modern and perfect for digital lifestyle,” he says of his new purchase. “Veyla Natai Residences offers beachfront villas with a full view of the Andaman Sea at your doorstep.
“It’s a great choice for investment because Natai is a peaceful beach which attracts Thai and foreign visitors.”
