Talaythong Shangrila Mai Khao, Phuket
This magnificent 7-bedroom house is located within the Talaythong Shangrila estate in the northern tip of the island.
The development is aptly named: Talaythong means “Golden Sea”, while “Shangri-La” is the paradise on earth that mankind has sought for centuries. This truly is a hidden paradise, along the tranquil northeastern coast, on a calm inlet which connects Phang Nga Bay to the East and the Andaman Sea to the West.
The spacious (496 sqm) two-storey design features an indoor/outdoor living room, full western kitchen, and en-suite bathrooms for each bedroom. The indoor/outdoor space allows you to fully appreciate your 180 degree view, which takes in the immaculately landscaped gardens, a private pool, two ponds, and 20m of private beach/waterfront, including your own personal boat ramp and mooring.
The open water is on your doorstep, providing access to boating and water sports, while the Championship-calibre golf course at Blue Canyon Country Club offers a more “grounded” pursuit. If nature walks are more your style, a short drive over the Sarasin Bridge onto the mainland takes you into Phang Nga Province, with its dense, unspoiled national parks. A little further around Phang Nga Bay you find yourself in Krabi, with its wonderful restaurants, beaches and amazing views of the karst formations in the bay.
Talaythong Shangrila offers privacy and seclusion, while at the same time being conveniently located for the Phuket International Airport, international schools, restaurants and shopping – all reachable within 20-30 minutes.
