Thailand is home to some of the most beautiful scenery in the world. When planning your vacation in this tropical country, it’s only fitting that you make the best out of its stunning views by booking a villa that offers an optimum viewpoint to witness Thailand’s glorious vista.

While villas with floor-to-ceiling windows or pool decks offer stunning views of the surrounding landscape, to truly enjoy sweeping views of Thailand’s captivating sandy beaches, lush greeneries, and clear blue ocean, you need a villa with a rooftop lounge and terrace where you can relax and chill out while taking in the enchanting sights.

Here is our recommendation for luxury villas in Koh Samui and Phuket that features exceptional rooftop lounges with breathtaking outlooks:

Villa Amaravida

Located in Phuket’s Cape Yamu, Villa Amaravida overlooks the Phang Nga Bay from its rooftop lounge. Two whirlpools are set up in the villa’s rooftop bar, which can host 16 people. Alternatively, if you’re not in the mood for a dip, you can still enjoy a view of the bay while lying on the daybeds.

The villa also boasts a beautiful alfresco area with plenty of natural light and the fresh breeze coming from the ocean. This area features an open-air sala that sits right by the pool and a dining area, presenting a perfect location to hang out with friends or family.
