Villa Baray | Unique Iconic Phuket Landmark for Sale - Sea Views & Five Bedrooms
Villa Baray is a totally unique property located on Phuket’s West Coast, just North of Karon Beach. The villa is considered to be an Iconic Phuket Landmark by many, due to the striking architecture and perched location on the hillside overlooking the Andaman Sea.

The exterior is breathtaking, one of kind, a tribute to ornate middle east architecture. From the road, one can see golden domes, palm trees and stained-glass windows.
The entrance is simply stunning, 5m high golden gates, surrounded by intricate finery, two bold decorated columns, and a patterned mosaic floor. The gate opens electrically to the covered car parking area and to the door to the property.
The over height front door revolves on a central spindle, and again is elaborately decorated.
The entrance foyer is amazing, middle eastern artifacts and filled with Asian and Thai imagery. Soft cushions and seating areas line the exterior of the room, whilst the crowning glory is a full-sized Buddha statue, set underneath a golden dome, decorated by hanging art pieces and metal lamps.
The mosaic flooring continues the geometric motif from the entrance way. There is also a generous terrace, with seating, where one can catch the first glimpses of the Andaman Sea across Karon Beach.
This expansive level continues, with seating nooks and alcoves under stained glass windows, all surrounded with intricate detail and beautiful Asian and Arabian artifacts.
