High above one of the best beaches in Phuket, Thailand, sit 15 sky palaces. Priced from about $8 million, the over 18,000-square-foot homes are both an extension of Anantara Layan Phuket Resort and self-sufficient compounds all their own. Owners at the Residences by Anantara have access to resort activities like cooking, yoga, and Muay Thai kickboxing classes. They can also order food from any of Anantara’s restaurants and visit its swimming pool on Layan Beach, which is a short golf-cart ride away.

Although wanting to put your feet in the sand may be the only reason to leave your private swimming pool. An infinity-edge lap pool seemingly hangs over the edge of each residence—perched on stilts like a treehouse. The hillside homes look out to panoramic views of the Andaman Sea. Just behind the pool deck are the main living spaces, flanked by the master bedroom and an open-air dining pavilion. On the lower level are secondary bedrooms, an office, and a private spa room with a skylight to the pool above. Choose among layouts with three to eight bedrooms, all equipped with motorized treatments for floor-to-ceiling windows and marble bathrooms with Toto Washlet toilets. Owners can keep the homes for private use or they can return them to the hotel rental pool, where they rent for about $3,000 per night. The drive to the homes, located on the island’s west coast, is about 20 minutes from Phuket International Airport. (Inquiries: +66.85.484.8752, propertysales@minor.com; residences-anantara.com)
