A feeling of opulence

The word “Istana” is a Sanskrit term meaning “palace” and that is what the builders have set out to build for each and every owner. The philosophy on which Istana has been built is to achieve FOO – A Feeling of Opulence. This feeling of opulence has been considered in every last detail of the construction, the surroundings and the services offered at Istana Phuket. In total there are nineteen exclusive residential palaces, where each owner can enjoy an opulent and palatial lifestyle.

There are both four and five bedroom villas and yet every villa is unique. Fantastic interior innovations incorporated at Istana Phuket include: home cinemas; Italian Varenna kitchens and wardrobes; Lutron Home Automation Systems to give you total control of lighting, air conditioning and sound systems throughout the villa; hand selected Italian Travertine flooring; full commercial kitchen in the staff area that can cater for parties with up to a hundred guests; home gymnasiums; imported Antonio Lupi Bathrooms; polished terrazzo wall surfaces; exquisite art works and the best of contemporary furniture; separate au pair quarters; walk-in wine cellars in some of the villas; Viabizzuno lighting throughout and Sonos Integrated Sound System throughout the villas.

The operational philosophy behind the Istana estate is to provide hotel level service within villa environments. The stunning and unique architecture of each house, has been balanced with a degree of standardisation within the service facilities of each villa and the central facilities to provide a platform for the Istana to demonstrate the famous Thai hospitality and service standards in a novel and custom built physical environment that will be as attractive to its guests as well as its owners. Top end food and beverage services combined with efficient and professional staff facilitating all of its guests’ desires will define the Istana Phuket’s experience.

Istana is prominently located on a hillside overlooking stunning Naithon Beach, on the north-west coast of Phuket. The estate is only a 10 minute drive from Phuket International Airport to the north and 40 minutes from the thriving shopping, dining and nightlife scene of Patong, to the south. Nearby are the internationally renowned Trisara, Three Dolphins and Laguna Phuket resorts.

Within a few kilometres of Istana are several of Phuket’s finest beaches, all without the crowds of the better known tourist beaches in the south of the island.

Within minutes, the huge Laguna area can be reached for a selection of day spas, shopping and dining, all catering to a discerning clientele.

Istana is the signature holiday property of Phuket, it is unparalleled in both quality and originality and will attract only the most discerning international buyers.
