The Yin and Yang of Thai Luxury

In Phuket, Thailand exist a pair of upscale, private vacation villas which – as their names imply – are simultaneously unique and complementary of each other. Reserve a seven-night Luxury Link vacation experience for up to eight guests at either Villa Yin or Villa Yang, and prepare to be pampered in your own secluded island paradise.
Situated on a dramatic cliff on the western side of Phuket, Villa Yin and Villa Yang are the brainchildren of French couple Laurent and Chantal Broda, who have a refined eye for style and design. Both properties feature modern Thai architecture, and as Laurent explained “our art pieces have come from all over the world, and it took me three years to collect them all.”
Villa Ying – set amidst a verdant half-acre garden – is an elegant, four-bedroom, four-bath villa with an open-air design allowing the beauty and serenity of nature to flow throughout. Amenities include a home cinema, wine cellar, sauna and 18-meter infinity pool with sea view. The villa’s private staircase leads to a natural swimming cove, just for guests.
Visitors enjoy the convenience of a live-in staff, while a private chef cooks meals in the kitchen imported from Italy. Dining is often al fresco overlooking the Andaman Sea, and as Laurent Broda describes, guests are in for a real delight to their senses.
“Thai cooking is really among the best in the world, and our cook is very good. A few dishes I love are goong sarong, fish soup with crispy noodles, pomelo salad with prawns or just a grilled lobster on the BBQ.”
Just as opulent, but with a unique style that elegantly blends Eastern and Western traditions is Villa Yang. Also boasting four guestrooms – each on a different floor – and four bathrooms, dark wood with touches of marble and granite truly bring the beauty of nature indoors inside this villa. Like its sister property, Villa Yang features live-in staff and a personal chef.
Sweeping views from terraces throughout the cliffside property command relaxation, as does a dip in the private infinity pool.
Meanwhile, guests looking to explore Phuket have no shortage of excursions available to them. Laurent recommends chartering a boat around Phuket or to Phi Phi island in Bang Na Bay, the Phuket Fantasy elephant show, or playing 18 holes at one of two world-class golf courses on the island. Centrally located, the villas are just 30 minutes from Phuket’s international airport and 20 minutes from the nightlife of Patong.
For a limited time, Luxury Link is offering an additional 30% off the already-discounted cost of a seven-night vacation experience at Villa Yin or Villa Yang. That's a savings of up to $9,956 at Villa Yin and $6,184 at Villa Yang.
