Villa Amarapura

About The Space
Let's Get You Booked In

Perched atop an emerald hill with uninterrupted views over Phang Nga Bay is the luxurious, five bedroom Baan Maprao. This elegant private villa on the exclusive Cape Yamu peninsula in east Phuket, offers opulent indoor and outdoor living with five-star features including a 22-metre infinity pool and a private cinema room. Designed by Philippe Starck and Jean-Michel Gathy, Baan Maprao offers a modern take on traditional Thai style. Perfect for families and friends, the villa is staffed with a manager, chef and villa attendants, and enjoys quick access to some of Phuket’s most spectacular sites.

Baan Maprao is set on exclusive Cape Yamu, a beautiful peninsula on Phuket’s east coast, marked by rolling hills, tall coconut groves and lush tropical surrounds. With three marinas and two piers nearby, it enjoys easy access to the mystical limestone karsts of Phang Nga Bay, and beautiful tropical islands such as Ko Naka Yai and Ko Rang Yai, both of which offer pristine white-sand beaches. For nature lovers, the Khao Phra Thaeo National Park with Gibbon Rehabilitation Centre and eye-catching Bang Pae waterfall are within close reach, while the bustling streets of Phuket Town are a mere 30-minute drive away.

Baan Paa Talee Estate’s guest relations manager has a wealth of information about nearby places of interest and will help arrange transport and make any bookings required. And be sure to ask her about some of the lesser-known places and beaches around the island if you fancy an insider’s view into local Phuket life.
