Villa-Abiente---Breathtaking-view

Cape Yamu Experience

The locale

Found within the exclusive and secure Baan Yamu estate on Cape Yamu, Villa Abiente offers a tranquil escape perfect for exploring Phuket’s east-coast sights. Within the estate is a modern collection of residences and villas, with a restaurant and bar, one of the island’s largest swimming pools, and an air-conditioned gym available for guests. Opposite Baan Yamu is a seaside promenade and small pier, a pleasant area for an evening stroll, and where kayaks and speedboats are available for hire. The sunrise views over the bay will encourage early morning starts, and Villa Abiente’s easy access to local marinas make a Phang Nga Bay cruise a must. Between the east coast’s calm bays dotted with long-tail fishing boats, lush forested hillsides and acres of rubber-plantations are some surprisingly upscale dining choices including top Phuket restaurant Breeze at Cape Yamu, renowned for its long lazy Sunday brunches.

Things to do

Villa Abiente is perfectly positioned for exploring Phuket’s rural east coast and for cruising the fabulous islands and waters of Phang Nga Bay. And its location just to the east of the island’s main north/south thoroughfare gives easy access to many popular beaches and to Phuket Town. Here’s just a sampling of some of our recommended sights and activities beyond the villa:

  • Explore the iconic karst islands of Phang Nga Bay, made famous in the James Bond classic ‘The Man with the Golden Gun’. Cruise the scenic waters aboard a luxury yacht or paddle through the caves on a sea kayaking daytrip.
  • Indulge in a Long Lazy Sunday brunch with beautiful bay views at Breeze restaurant, just a five-minute drive from the villa. Enjoy a dozen or more selections with the menu refreshed regularly to ensure the best seasonal ingredients, all served with style at a single long table that seats 40 guests.
  • Go surfing at one of Phuket’s west-coast beaches including Kalim just north of Patong Beach and Kamala, or if conditions allow hire a SUP board and explore the coastline by paddle. Or head inland to the lake at Anthem Wake Park for some cable wakeboarding and, for the kids, an inflatable aqua park.
  • Take a stroll back through time with a walk around Phuket Old Town and its historic Sino-Portuguese shophouses, many of which have been converted into chic cafés and boutiques. On Sunday evenings the colourful streets host the lively Lard Yai market offering tasty local food, art and handicrafts for sale.
  • Learn the secrets of Thai cuisine in a cookery class offered by the talented chefs at the nearby Nahmyaa restaurant in Como Point Yamu resort, or try a class with the master of Thai fusion fare, Chef Tammasak “Noi” Chootong of Suay restaurant.
  • Phuket is home to two wildlife sanctuaries, both found on the east coast. At the Gibbon Rehabilitation Project, just inside the entrance to Khao Phra Thaeo national park, learn more about these endangered primates and the efforts to release gibbons saved from poachers back to the wild. Or book a tour of the Phuket Elephant Sanctuary to watch rescued elephants at play in their natural environment.
  • Tee-off at one of Phuket’s meticulously landscaped golf courses including Mission Hills, Laguna Phuket Golf Club and Blue Canyon Country Club. 
  • Give your body and mind a restorative boost with a massage or beauty session at a Phuket luxury spa. Nearby is the COMO Shambhala Retreat at Point Yamu resort, or book into the Banyan Tree Spa for a truly royal treatment.
  • Browse for local crafts, beach fashions, brand-name clothing and more at one of Phuket’s shopping centres including Premium Outlet near Phuket Town, Jungceylon mall in Patong Beach and Boat Avenue near Bangtao Beach.
  • Discover the exotic marine life of the Andaman Sea on a scuba diving or snorkelling day trip to nearby islands including Koh Khai, the Similan islands, Koh Phi Phi and the Raya islands.

      Ying and Kob, you are the best for taking care of us for 8 days! You are wonderful. I wish I can stay longer in Villa Abiente. Rooms are always really clean and tidy. Food is great. Ying is amazing that she can cook all kinds of nice and yummy dishes. I can swear that the best food I have in Phuket is what Ying cooked for us. This is not my first time staying in the villa that is run by Elite Havens group and their villas don't let you down at all. Always spacious and luxurious!

      We had amazing 4 days break at villa Abiente. The property is gorgeous. The staff are friendly and accommodating. The manager is sufficient and professional. Ying and Kob are wonderful ladies and took good care of us and our stomachs. We didn't take long to feel at home here and will definitely think about returning or trying out their other properties in the Cape Residence.

      It's been a great pleasure to stay in this villa. The service was good, staff was nice and the house itself is just spectacular. We'd always come back if we are visiting Phuket, thank you so much!

      First of all, I would like to say thanks to Kob and Ying to give me such a great honeymoon beginning. During my stay the food, the environment, the services, everything matches my requirement, especially the food I like it so much. Kob always keeps the house clean and tidy. After they know it is my honeymoon, they even set up a honeymoon room which I like it very much. Hope to see you next time.

      Thanks for the awesome and extremely attentive services in the past three days. Our chef is amazing and she basically fulfilled all our meal requests. Food was good and perfectly presented. Another housekeeper was very helpful and meticulous toward the villa cleanliness and tidiness. All in all, we had very pleasant experience and will definitely be back in the future. Thanks for making my bachelorette party an unforgettable one. My girl friends and I couldn't be more happy throughout our entire trip!

      We had the most wonderful time here at villa Abiente. The view, the food and the people made us feel so welcomed and at home. Wonderful memories made. Between the stunning views, gorgeous pool and beautiful grounds. The villa staff and chef ensure that our every need was catered to. From the authentic Thai food we enjoyed at home, to organizing little excursion for us (with a baby). This was definitely a holiday to remember. A big shout out to the staff who were most attentive and ensured all our needs were catered to. Also a positive experience.from the time we confirmed our reservation to the moment we left the villa. Thank you!
