Maikhao Dream Villa Resort and Spa

Huge beachfront pool villas complete with butler service

Featuring 22 private pool villas that are each the size of a suburban house, the Maikhao Dream Villa Resort and Spa is one of the most exclusive 5-star villa resorts in Phuket. The location is a quiet section of beach near the northern end of the island, so Patong Beach and the crazy nightlife are an hour or more away, which is a good thing for many people.

The resort does have 2 restaurants and 2 bars, plus a Kids Club program and several other services, but since each villa has its own pool, it’s meant for secluded relaxation rather than water sports. A personal butler will not only take your luggage into the room, but also unpack it for you, and act as a concierge for you throughout your stay. Being in the upper end of the Phuket price range, you can expect a lot, and the resort delivers well.

What the reviews say

Reviews for the Maikhao Dream Villa Resort and Spa are generally excellent. Everyone seemed very impressed by the huge and luxurious villas and the attentive service, plus the other staff such as in the Kids Club and spa.

While most of the reviews so far are extremely positive, one strange thing is that a few guests seemed surprised by how far the resort was from the craziness of Patong Beach. The Maikhao Dream Villa Resort and Spa is in a very quiet location north of the airport, so it’s an hour away from Patong. This is a good thing for most villa guests, but if you want nightlife and crowded shopping areas, there are better choices that will be more suited to your wants.
