Snuggled in an ancient valley on Phuket’s western edge, The Naka is a discreet tropical hideout, with glass-built villas offering endless panoramas of the sparkling Andaman Sea.

Architecture Built around nature

The Naka Phuket Facade in Thailand

Architecture Built around nature

Instead of opting for traditional bungalows or a blocky high-rise, Duangrit Bunnag created a forest of stone and glass villas.

If his plans overlapped with a mature tree, Bunnag would work around them. The result is that the villas appear scattered across the valley, with well-established trees sprouting up from the gaps. At the center of The Naka are four wooden pavilions, while the pagoda-like lobby is built around a series of upright columns, making the most of natural ventilation.

Interior design Privacy is priority

Block colors, natural wood floors, and expansive windows abound, while tranquil privacy is paramount.

From the private pools outside, guests can admire designer and architect Duangrit Bunnag’s bold cantilever design, which leaves bedrooms and lounging areas floating in midair. Inside, plain cuboid forms synchronize with the villas’ straight edges. Amber-colored floorboards run parallel to the hillside, while the beds are aligned so that guests can watch the waves, listen to the rustle of the trees, and find their inner equilibrium.
