Impiana Private Villas

Boutique villa resort with private infinity pools and butlers

Featuring only 11 villas in a gorgeous hillside location overlooking Kata Beach, the Impiana Private Villas is among the smallest and most exclusive hotels in Phuket. Each of the villas is huge and comes complete with a private infinity pool and a dedicated personal butler, so you can expect service that is as attentive as you desire.

As such a small facility, this resort doesn’t have a club house and multiple restaurants, so it’s designed for guests coming to relax or to explore the area. While it’s in the upper rate category, it includes such things as included airport pickup, so it offers rather good value all things considered.

What the reviews say

Reviews for the Impiana Private Villas are generally excellent, but the resort has not been without small problems, especially in its first year of 2010. Most guest describe it as heavenly with wonderful and huge rooms with fantastic service and amazing views from the hillside.

However, the hotel seems to have had its share of maintenance problems where small things that should be running smoothly are still being fixed. The vast majority of the reviews give it a solid 5 stars out of 5, but since there are some who are disappointed it’s worth noting.
