Villa Wang Nam Jai is part of the Jomchang estate on the exclusive Millionaires Mile headland between Kamala and Patong beaches on Phuket’s west cost. The villa boasts spectacular views across the sea with the glittering lights of Patong Beach and the white sands of the ‘secret’ Paradise Beach visible in the distance across Patong bay. A six kilometre drive down a winding coastal road takes you to Kamala Beach, a family-friendly resort town with a pretty sandy bay good for swimming and water sports. Patong, Phuket’s busiest beach with three kilometres of sand and plenty of shopping, dining and nightlife spots to explore, sits about the same distance to the south.
Beyond the comfortable seclusion of Villa Wang Nam Jai is a wealth of things to do and see around the island. Whether it’s a relaxing day out at the beach, a shopping excursion or a yacht cruise, Phuket’s sights and activities are all within easy reach and may be arranged with the help your villa manager.
Here’s just a sampling:
Discover the beauty of the Andaman Sea aboard a luxury yacht. An easy day cruise takes you to the majestic karsts of Phang Nga Bay, the white sands and snorkelling sites of Raya island, or to the buzzing yet still wondrous Phi Phi islands.

Our stay at Villa Wang Nam Jai was a truly memorable one. The sheer serenity of the place made us feel as if we were one with nature. The attention to our needs by Ann and her staff was exemplary. Every meal was a treat service. Ann tried her best to incorporate our love of flowers into every course. We will definitely visit again soon.

Wang Nam Jai is a luxury holiday villa artfully arranged over the jungle-clad hillside for incredible ocean views, peace and privacy. Tucked away on a headland in a secure estate between Kamala and Patong bays, this four-bedroom, fully staffed villa is a delightful place for groups or families to unwind in the tropics.
Nam Jai, which translates to ‘water-heart’ in Thai, is a phrase that means kindness, in particular the kindness of making sacrifices for those you care about and extending hospitality to others. Wang Nam Jai, then, means “a palace of generous kindness”, and those who stay here will discover that generosity abounds, in both the opulence of the living spaces and the warm attentiveness of the staff.
Wang Nam Jai’s sense of tranquillity extends into every corner of the villa, both inside and out, from the Buddhist and Hindu paintings, statues and wall frescoes to the koi pond and the sounds of birdsong and ocean waves. On the terrace, the eye is drawn to an intriguing life-sized bronze statue of a ballet dancer in an energetic pose. Created by the Monaco-based sculptor Kees Verkade, it's a dazzling image of strength and balance against the vivid backdrop of sea and sky.
The four king-bedded suites are each a haven of peace, especially the master suite with its huge terrazzo bathtub. The bedrooms are consciously free from distracting electronics – but there’s plenty of entertainment to enjoy in the media room and on the terrace, including foosball, table tennis and a home theatre as well as a 20-metre infinity edge swimming pool.
Days at Wang Nam Jai unfold in blissful comfort. Salute the sun, admire the views and enjoy the fresh morning breeze with a yoga session in the fitness room that crowns the villa. Take breakfast in the cool comfort of the dining room before a refreshing dip in the pool and a tanning session on one of the many loungers furnishing the wide terrace. Finish the day with an elaborate seafood barbecue served alfresco by the pool, all prepared by your private chef. And then, as night falls and the lights of Patong Beach glitter across the bay, savour some wine in the living room or on a comfy terrace sofa before heading out for some nightlife excitement.
