Thank you for your interest in our villas. We look forward to speaking with you!
Villa Paloma is one of the two sister villas set within the Picasso Villas complex. Located a skip away from Bang Tao Beach, the estate enjoys a tranquil, scenic environment, and makes a great option for restful getaways with friends and family.
Drawing inspiration from 1950s icon Jayne Mansfield, the villa boasts a feminine style, a wall space dedicated to Mansfield’s movie posters (arranged in the same manner at her “Pink Palace” in Hollywood) and an indoor lounge fitted out with Mansfield’s 1950s sofa set. Containing a total of five bedrooms, the villa is ideally set up for travelling parties of ten.
Five bedrooms are spread out across the villa. The ground floor contains two guest bedrooms fitted with twin singles, while both master suites (outfitted with king beds) are located on the upper floor. While all bedrooms are comfortably furnished, the master suites stand out with its Picasso prints and access to private sun terraces. A fifth bedroom, equipped with double bed and a private en suite accommodates two guests. It can be accessed externally from the outside of the villa.
Take a dip in the sparkling pool, soak up the breezy Phuket vibes by the poolside or take in the tropical views from the upper floor terrace. The estate also features a private, FIFA approved mini-football 5-a-side pitch complete with floodlights. Professional coaching and training may be arranged for football enthusiasts. The 18m x 38m space also doubles up as a spacious venue for weddings, birthday celebrations and team building events.
Villa Paloma combines contemporary design elements with 1950s retro chic. Inspired by Hollywood icon Jayne Mansfield, the villa features a wall space decked with Mansfield’s movie posters, as well as an upper floor lounge decorated with her original 1950s sofa set and clothed mannequin.
The villa’s open plan living area is the focal point indoors. Large folding windows create airy, light-filled interiors, and the bi-folding doors open out towards the pool and al fresco dining area (complete with barbecue facilities). The indoor lounge extends out to include a dining area and open kitchen with breakfast bar. A private chef may be engaged for in-villa dining experiences or Thai cooking classes.
Villa Paloma is a full-service vacation rental. The on-site team will readily assist with tour and travel arrangements.
Villa Paloma is located along the western coasts of Phuket, close to Bang Tao Beach. The vibes here are quiet and laidback, and will suit vacationers looking to reside away from tourist hotspots like Patong or Kata.
Bang Tao Beach, located 10 minutes’ drive from your villa offers ample options for beachfront dining. During the high season (November till February), the sea conditions are ideal for swimming and water sports.

Unwind and relax with top-notch spa rituals at places like Banyan Tree Spa Sanctuary or Angsana Spa Laguna. Planning a family day trip?

I had the opportunity to stay at Villa Paloma in Phuket recently. Getting there was effortless and it was only a short 20-minute trip from the airport by car. This was an incredible villa that exceeded every expectation I had imagined. It has an absolutely rarified atmosphere. From the moment of walking in you are transported in space and time. I say space, because of the phenomenal architecture and design of the villa. You are immediately struck by the vaulted high ceiling the light and open air feeling that opens up to the garden so you feel you are in nature outside yet you are inside at the same moment. And I say time, because the entire villa is furnished with exceptional artwork and originals from Jane Mansfield’s Hollywood home. The attention to detail, the meticulous arrangement of photographs and vintage Hollywood posters creates an ambiance that transports you into that Hollywood era of time. This combined suspension in time and space is one of the most exotic experiences I have ever had. That afternoon, I had to shop for a bathing suit. I found shops and many delightful local restaurants to chose from for late lunch, were conveniently only a few minutes away by car. Later, I found checking email with the fiber optic Internet was blazingly fast. The villa is immaculately clean and very comfortable. In the evening there is a serenade of singing from the natural creatures of the tropics. Mark is a superb chef and is able to create an evening meal without any apparent effort that is an outstanding culinary experience. While your senses are still reeling from the resonance of the villa, the next morning Mark reveals more secrets. Next to the villa is a pitch, an enclosure with high quality grass, similar to a golf green, fixed with soccer goals on both ends. Add the soccer balls for practice, exercise and cardio. You also have an audience of figures created by an incredibly gifted graffiti artist, Cece Nobre, with a background of culture from the United States, Paraguay, and Brazil whom is now living in Thailand. The figures seem to touch a primal wisdom in the soul, as their eyes cheer you on darting around the pitch. Truly, these are magical moments. Of course to cool down, there is a saltwater pool without any chlorine smell, and the water leaves your skin rejuvenated. Villa Paloma is note worthy. It has a panache that demonstrates the “exceptional” in every aspect of its design and elegance for anyone looking for a special memorable getaway experience I recommend it. Mark is an incredibly warm and gracious host, I felt so welcome during every moment of my stay and I am most grateful for the experience.
I'll be honest - this is not a beach-side villa, and there are not many attractions really close by. But you don't need them! The owner, Mark, or the villa manager, Kate, can organise a rental car, or a car with driver, so you can visit any of the many attractions Phuket has to offer...... and then come home to this. After trips to a few beaches, if you are like me, you will be tempted to just stay here. Especially if you hire Mark to cook you a meal that will rival (and, in fact, surpass) the best that any restaurant can offer. I mean it - he is a first class chef.... you have to try his mini quiches and his Tiramisu; and he even turns a mundane roast chicken into an event. But back to the villa itself..... I really cannot fault it in anything. It's a secluded paradise in every way, inside and out. The housekeeper keeps it spotless, the pool is ever-inviting, the indoor/outdoor design works perfectly (with floor-to-ceiling and wall-to-wall state-of-the-art mosquito screens, as required), and exploring the Jayne Mansfield Collection, housed here, is a wonderful way to pass the time. And then, there is the football pitch!! What a unique idea and perfect complement to the villa..... even if you don't play football. I loved just walking, and exercising, barefoot on the beautifully kept grass, and my two sons played and practised their goal shots every day. But I must warn you: if you stay here once, you will want to come back.
This villa has everything you would expect for a comfortable stay in any place in the word. It is very spacious and professionaly designed. Very functional - 4 bedrooms with individual bathrooms, plenty of space, good storage and big comfortable beds. Main area is big, airy with open plan layout, accesing the swimingpool, creating nice outdoor living experience. It is a salt water pool! - no chlorine smell! Swimingpool is good for kids (with safe depth on one side) and an atractive fountain/waterfall at its end. You have: aircondition, fans and nice lights allowing you to create an ambience of your choice in the evenings. Internet and TV box with netflix and all you need + nice soundsystem works well if you want to have a pool party with friends. Maid is coming daily, pool and garden maintanance is in place as well. This villa is not the first development of it's owner and that is why there is no flaws to it - and this is an extra bonus in Thailand. If you need a car rental (and you will need it in Thailand) or any guidance, the owner can help you with everything as he knows Phuket like the back of his hand (lived there many years). Beautifull beaches, first class dining and night life is on offer in Phuket, even when at first glance you are in the middle of a jungle. Staying in the villa will give you an experience of a perfect escape - comfortable and luxurious accomododation in a quiet, hidden location. Next to villa Paloma stands its "twin brother" villa Pablo (with football memorabilia) - it can be rent together but if not, both of them are private enough. It looks exactly like on proffesional pictures!
