Staying at Amanzi offers the advantage of exploring Thai cuisine with the guidance of your own personal chef and dining in privacy at an unhurried pace. The bright kitchen, very well equipped with modern appliances, is mainly the chef’s domain but is open for guests to use at their convenience.
Amanzi has a suggestion menu of mostly Thai dishes but Western dishes may be prepared on request. The villa also offers a wine list, and the villa manager is happy to take guests along to a local wine shop should they prefer to browse the options themselves. Special dietary requirements are accommodated and can be discussed prior to arrival.
The chef takes care of the shopping and provisions are charged at market price plus a 20% handling fee. Guests are requested to provide a sum of money in advance to cover the grocery bills and the staff will keep the receipts for reference. To ensure the chef has enough time to prepare, guests are encouraged to plan meals at least one day in advance.
Staying in a villa offers a wonderful chance to experience Thai hospitality at its best. Villa Amanzi is staffed by an experienced friendly team who offer caring and personal service tailored to your preferences. The manager and chef are pleased to discuss your needs to ensure you enjoy a restful and enjoyable holiday at the villa.
Amanzi’s knowledgeable manager is responsible for the overall operation of the villa. She visits the villa to check on guest’s needs and is contactable anytime to assist with all of your holiday requirements both within the villa and beyond. Talk with her about your meal and service preferences, transport needs and excursions.
Delve into Thai cuisine and enjoy customised daily meals at your own pace with the service of Amanzi’s full-time chef. The chef takes care of all the shopping as well as the preparation of breakfast, lunch and dinner.

The villa’s pool is regularly maintained and the gardens are serviced daily.

Amanzi is a welcoming and accessible villa for guests of all ages and families will relish its ample indoor and outdoor space and facilities in which to play and relax. The private pool, with its great views over the bay, is bound to be a hit with everyone, and the pool table, table tennis and gardens provide additional fun outside. Indoors, families have a choice of two media rooms with large-screen TVs and fabulous sound systems while three bedrooms are also equipped with TV entertainment. Families are also welcome to use the estate’s clubhouse pool, tennis court and fitness centre for no extra charge.
Flexibility in sleeping arrangements is also offered with a separate multi-purpose room that can be setup to sleep a nanny or kids, and a rollout sofabed in the TV lounge attached to the lower-floor bedroom. A lift connecting the top two floors makes Amanzi easy to navigate for those with limited mobility. The villa is also equipped with two high chairs and a baby cot. Other kids’ equipment is available to hire from reputable local agencies.
Villa Amanzi’s full-time chef and spacious, modern kitchen makes family dining easy, and meals or snacks can always be customised to suit children’s tastes. Amanzi’s staff is on hand to make guests of all ages feel welcome, and young guests will undoubtedly be showered with care and attention. A full-time babysitting service is available for a modest extra charge.
