Rawai VIP Villa and Kids Park : Best Family Resort in Rawai



Want to experience a Family Friendly Villa in Phuket?
 Having been to Phuket, we thought we had experienced it all.

That was until we had an invitation from Rawai VIP Villa to experience the relatively new and probably the best family resort we can find on Rawai Beach. It is pretty hard to find villas with pools that can fit more than one family in Phuket. At Rawai VIP Villa , you can have the option of 2 Bedrooms to 6 bedroom villas that can comfortably fit a family of 4 to 12.

If you are heading to Phuket in a large family or group and want to be staying together. Rawai VIP Villa is the one to head to. Let us show you why!

Where is Rawai VIP Villa
Rawai Vip Villa
Rawai Vip Villa is located on Rawai Beach. Rawai Beach is an idyllic beach located on the South opf Phuket, away from the hustle and bustle of Patong. Rawai beach was the first tourist beach in Phuket. Today it is a working beach and launching point if you would like to visit the nearby islands. It is relatively quiet compared to the rest of the beaches in Phuket.

If you want to have a relaxing holiday without the noise and congested feel from the rest of Phuket , Rwai Beach is the place to go to. Rawai VIP Villa is about an hour plus away from the airport.

Rawai VIP Villa
Rawai VIP Villa is located about 300 meters away from the beachfront. The setting itself is tranquil and private. It is not gated but the reception fronts the entrance. With security all round the clock, it makes for an assured location to enjoy a family holiday.


Upon arrival  ( you can arrange airport transfer with the resort) ,we were ushered into the reception.


There are a few unique procedures you need to take note of during check in. First, you need to pay a deposit of 5000thb which you can use a passport as 'deposit' in lieu of that. Secondly, you will be presented a list of items in the resort with their respective cost. It is best to go through the list thoroughly when you check into the resort.


After a brief on resort matters, we are ready to check in the resort. We grab our bunch of keys and head towards the resort.

This 7 by 4 meters pool is the highlight of the Villa.
Relaxing by the pool

You have a personalized pool all by yourself with the family. Without a doubt, this was the place the family hang out the most.


Just bring sunblock and you are good to go!

Do note the pool depth is at 1.5 meters . So for younger kids, especially the non swimmers, floats are a must. The resort does provide some floats but bring your own just in case.

For the three bedroom Lux Villa, there is a private garden complete with a pavilion for you to enjoy.

BBQ facilities are also provided. You can get your BBQ fix at the nearby Rawai Seafood Market if you like to fire up the grill.

Bicycles are also provided. This is useful if you like to purchase a quick bite from the nearby restaurants and convenience stores.

We were wow by our first impression. The villa is about 1 year old and it still maintains its cleanliness and charm. This homely villa feels brand new and a great place to relax with the family.

Rawai Park

If you are heading to Rawai with young kids, you will not be disappointed. For guests of the villa, you get unlimited access to Rawai Park - the ulitmate play area for kids!

There are four main areas of play in the park 

Water Area
Water Area
The Water Area is a favourite among the kids. With water slides and water features, the kids could play all day in it. With 40 cm knee deep water depth, it is a relatively safe place for kids 3 and above.
Water Play at Rawai Park
There are no lifeguards around. However it is not a concern with the shallow water depth. Parents can either be in the pool with the kids or have their breakfast at Love Rawai Cafe and watch them from the side.

Rope Climbing Tower

For kids age 8 and older and want a little more challenging play, this impressive 7meters rope climbing tower is perfect play area. Think Ninja Warrior meets obstacle course and you would have an idea what is in store. Safety harness is required. Do get the staff assistance before play.

Even though the resort is 300 meters from the beach, you can enjoy sand play at Rawai Park too.


During weekends, kids activities and games are also organized. As we were there during weekdays, we missed the activities at Rawai Park

Around Rawai VIP Villa
Time to head out and explore
If you need to stretch your legs, take a stroll out to Rawai Beach. You could enjoy the following activities within walking distance from the resort.

Have a Thai meal

There are a few restaurants that line the main road just outside the Villa. Meals are quite decently price and you could have a thai meal, western meal or even seafood by the sea.

Enjoy a massage


 An hour long foot massage cost only 300 baht ( about SGD12) , where to find?

Take a boat to Bon Island

If time permits and if you are looking for a private beach, take a longtail to the nearby Bon Island. Prices range from 1000 baht return for two and it takes about 15 minutes to reach Bon Island. There is a Bon Island Restaurant should you decided to fill your stomach while out there.

Eat fresh Seafood at Rawai Seafood Market


Head to the famous Rawai Seafood Market, choose your catch and have it cooked in the resturants opposite. A great place to enjoy fresh seafood for lunch or dinner.
