Refreshing Villa Yin in Phuket, Thailand
When you enter Villa Yin, you discover what the site calls “the treasures of one of Phuket’s true luxury rental gems.” Approaching it from the air, you’ll be amazed: this half-acre site looks directly onto the gorgeous turquoise waters of the Andaman Sea — and that’s only the beginning of its beauty. With indoor/outdoor living as a focus, four luxurious bedrooms, and a breathtaking marble pool that seems to extend clear into the ocean, Villa Yin is an ideal retreat for families, corporate gatherings, or private groups. Villa Yin’s five Thai-style pavilions — the entrance, guest, outdoor, main, and master pavilions — connect by footpaths, but are secluded by design. Take advantage of an afternoon doze in one of the sheltered outdoor lounges, or simply take in the view from one of the villa terraces, and you’ll know you’re in a very special place.
Quality materials such as dark hardwood, marble, granite, plate glass vanities and shower screens with pebble and bamboo inclusions, iridescent beaded bathtubs, and glass stairways bespeak a loving attention to detail. Indeed, the Villa Yin kitchen is state-of-the-art with equipment from Minotti, Italy —and a winner of Wallpaper Magazine’s Kitchen of the Year in 2006. Among the other pampering features of this splendid vacation villa are a wine cellar, sauna, massage room, and home theater…and that’s not even counting the marvels of sunrise and sunset over the water, ever-changing art in itself and available for free every morning and evening. Whether you’re gathering with others in your group in the central pavilion, leaning back against a brilliant red lounge cushion with a beverage, or taking a moonlight swim, the experience of Villa Yin is one of refreshment, relaxation, and restoration.
