The villa is on a private estate that meanders its way through unforgettably beautiful wooded grounds. Ban Tai has a beach with fine white sand and superb views of the neighboring islands and has plenty of convenience stores, local and western restaurants and bars. The village of Maenam is in easy reach of Ban Tai by car and has shops, restaurants and bars. Beyond Maenam is the romantic fisherman’s village of Bophut that has an impressive selection of shops, bars and restaurants. The commercial centre of Nathon is also an easy drive from Ban Tai.

You only need to read the reviews regarding the upkeep and design of property to see that although extremely competitively priced in the rental market, guests are still receiving a 5-star villa.

We offer guests free nights (5 for 6), discounted car rentals, and early bird booking discounts. These bundled offers, together with the already competitive rates, create a superb package for any guest choosing to book Villa Maphraaw. We also offer a 3-bedroom rate only so smaller parties of up to 6 can benefit with large discounts and still enjoy the entire villa facilities (the other 2 bedrooms are simply locked and guests have FULL PRIVATE USE of the villa - no-one else is invited), offering much more space than hiring your average 3 bed villa...

We can arrange everything for the guest as requested, whether prior to the holiday or during it; massage, chef, spas, day trips, taxis, car hire, etc. The villa also offers a back-up generator for any power-outages which can occur in Thailand for short periods of time on occasions.
