When one talks of lavish living and unforgettable getaways, it’s hard to beat the beauty and luxury that Phuket offers. With sprawling luxury villas and homes nestled on lush hilltops surrounded by the crystal clear blue waters of the Andaman Sea, it’s easy to see why this tropical island on the southern part of Thailand hits the right spot.
On the western coast of Phuket lies one of the island’s most popular beaches – Kamala Beach. Known for being a hit among families, this 2-kilometer beach is home to the Millionaire’s Mile, a strip that features some of the finest luxury homes and real estate properties in Phuket.
What Makes Millionaire’s Mile Stand Out
Millionaire’s Mile is situated along Kamala Beach, one of the popular beaches on the west coast of Phuket. Kamala Beach is situated about 9.5 kilometers north of Patong, one of Phuket’s most loved nightlife spots, and 3.5 kilometers south of Surin which is known for its endless shopping and entertainment options. While this part of Phuket is known for its vibrant nightlife and endless activities and establishments to try, Kamala is relatively calmer and more subdued compared to its counterparts. Because of its more peaceful vibe, Kamala Beach is a popular respite for families, retirees, and long-term visitors.
The Millionaire’s Mile offers the best of both worlds: while it is located on the quieter part of the west coast, it is still close to the area’s most vibrant and happening spots. Whether the visitors are looking for some quiet downtime or an exciting adventure, Millionaire’s Mile is the perfect starting point for however they want their stories to unfold.
A long stretch of fine-sand beach coupled with numerous local and international dining options, endless beach activities to try, fantastic clear blue waters, lush hilltops, and breathtaking sunset views to boot. There’s nothing else one could possibly want in a tropical getaway.
What to Do Around Millionaire’s Mile
Boasting of a long stretch of fine sand and clear blue waters, Millionaire’s Mile is situated on a location that’s perfect for water junkies – visitors can splash around to their hearts’ content and enjoy swimming, snorkeling, jet-skiing, parasailing, and even surfing.
Of course, no trip is complete without a culinary adventure. Kamala Beach is filled with various beachfront restaurants offering authentic Thai cuisine and the most popular international favorites. It’s also very common to find hawker stalls around the area serving traditional Thai favorites such as chicken satay and curries. Beach clubs and bar lounges are also available in the area, offering a wide array of international dishes and refreshing beverage concoctions.
While a trip to Kamala is ideal all year round, it’s good to note that the waters are calmer from November to April. Surfers and watersport enthusiasts are in for a treat from May to October as the waves are larger during this period, making it an optimal destination for those looking for a thrill.
Millionaire’s Mile is home to some of the finest luxury villas that Phuket has to offer. And while most would probably never want to leave the premises of the abodes, it’s great to know that luxury does not stop within the four walls of these fabulous estates.
Central Festival Phuket, one of the major shopping malls in the area, is home to some of the most well-known international retail stores and brands. There’s also Turtle Village, which hosts a supermarket, various high-end boutiques, and local shops selling the finest Thai products such as silk. Both shopping centers take about 30 to 40 minutes by car from Millionaire’s Mile.
Golf enthusiasts will be delighted to know that the Blue Canyon Country Club, one of the most exclusive establishments in the area, is located only 45 minutes away from Kamala Beach and Millionaire’s Mile. There’s also the Royal Phuket Marina, located 40 minutes away, offering an exclusive health club, high-end dining establishments, and a yacht club.
Recent years have seen the rise of luxury homes and other residential developments in the area, particularly in Kamala Beach and Millionaire’s Mile.
