Amatapura Krabi Villa

A special place to stay in Krabi

Krabi Riveria’s new beachfront villa offers an excellent base to explore the region, as well as being a unique destination in itself

Krabi Riviera Co., Ltd is proud to announce the addition of a second absolute beachfront villa to its luxury rental portfolio in Krabi, Thailand.

The “Amatapura Beach Villa no. 1” is a stunning 4 bedroom, 4 bathroom property located right on Ao Nam Mao beach, just a 5 minute drive from Ao Nang, and a 10 minute boat ride from Railay, voted the fifth best beach in Asia by TripAdvisor readers in 2013.

“People do not realize that properties such as these are few and far between – especially near to the tourist centres and airport,” says Pierre-Yves Loriers, the managing director of Krabi Riviera. “Most of the coastline in Krabi has already been developed for commercial use by hotels. So beachfront villas in Krabi, if they exist at all, are usually quite isolated. The properties we offer, however, are within easy driving distance of Ao Nang. This allows our guests to take advantage of all the usual excursions, shopping and dining that Krabi has to offer, while enjoying the benefits of direct, private beach access.”

The new Krabi beach villa for rent is part of the prestigious Amatapura development, a high end, multi-million dollar project, completed in 2009. Occupying a 200m stretch of deserted coastline, with breathtaking views over the Railay peninsula and the famous Poda islands beyond, the development has been designed to respect the magnificent nature surrounding it.

There is zero effluence from the villas (all fresh and wastewater is recycled, not released into the sea), and a no-car policy (underground parking is provided at the complex entrance) ensures perfect peace and quiet by the shore.

Most units in Amatapura are owned privately by an international clientele, and are not available for rent; however the first beachfront villa is now opening its doors exclusively to Krabi Riviera guests.

The no. 1 villa is luxurious but low-key, using rich materials such as teak wood and copper, and unique, custom-designed fittings and fixtures enhance its understated style.

The ground floor offers a huge, fully-equipped kitchen with island and dining area, and a spacious lounge surrounded by retractable glass windows on three sides. Both rooms overlook the private swimming pool and tropical garden, with the glittering Andaman Sea just steps away from the patio deck.

A small bedroom and bathroom complete the layout towards the rear of the house.

Upstairs can be found a second lounge area and impressive master suite, both of which have balconies and commanding views over the islands – including from the master bath. Two additional bedrooms, with ensuite bathrooms, allow the villa to sleep up to eight guests, with two more in extra beds.

The 445 sqm villa is kept perfectly cool by central air conditioning and has a satellite TV home theatre and Wi-Fi set-up to keep guests connected.

The services provided by Krabi Riviera Co., Ltd, in addition to the on-site staff and 24-hour security, include on demand tuk-tuk transfers within the local area, in-villa massage and beauty treatments, personal chef, breakfast delivery and concierge on call (fees apply, see website for details).

Krabi Riviera Co., Ltd is Krabi’s leading pool villa management company, with 18 rental properties, including 3 waterfront villas: Koh Koo in Ao Luk; and The Beach House and Amatapura Beach Villa no. 1 in Ao Nam Mao, near Ao Nang.
