The Ka Villa Location
Ka Villa is located in the south of Phuket in an area called Rawai, just a 10 minute walk from the beach. Recent years have seen the area become popular with both the Thai and expat communities, yet it remains free from over development and the increased levels of tourist traffic and prices that can be found in other areas of the island. Ka Villa’s tranquil setting is secluded and private, despite being only a short stroll from nearby Rawai beach, home to a thriving fresh seafood market, delicious seaside restaurants, shops and a host of other local amenities.
For daily groceries look no further than Tesco Lotus and Villa Market, which are also both just a 5 minute drive away. Within a 5 minute drive from Ka Villa is Promthep Cape, which is Phuket’s southernmost hill and the perfect location to witness the most amazing sunsets. The famous Nai Harn beach is also within 5 minutes with its golden sands and crystal clear waters and remains one of the most beautiful beaches on the island.
