Icandi Hideaway is a luxury villa located in the South East of Thailand and is approximately a three-hour drive from Bangkok. It is situated in a small village called Ban Nong Bua which is in the province of Prachuapkirikan.
The nearest small town is Paknampran, a 10-minute drive away. Pranburi is 15 minutes drive and is predominately a Thai town but it has a large Tesco Lotus supermarket, along with various restaurants and retail shops in the complex.
The luxury villa is a few minutes drive from a glorious golden beach on one side of Khao Kalok whilst the other side has an expansive quiet beach which runs for about two miles with the views of the 300 mountains in the near distance. A fishing fleet sails from this beach daily and the views are incredible, definitely picture postcard material.
There are plenty of small boutique hotels with very good restaurants, bars and spas, small local shops for convenience food and beachside eateries.
This area is great for cycling as it is flat so not too strenuous. Sam Roi Yot's 300 mountains are a 15-minute drive south and are well worth the trip. Beautiful beaches, mountains and caves, with masses of orchids and birdlife are there for the able bodied to see. There are many very good golf courses within an hours drive of the villa for those who are golf enthusiasts.
Hua Hin town, where the Royal family’s summer palace is situated, is 25 minutes drive and has evolved into a Thai/western town. Many large hotels and bars are here and two great night markets run most nights of the week. A large shopping mall is there with many different types of stores in a lovely air conditioned environment.
