Located right on the beach, overlooking the Five Island's and idyllically set amongst towering palms and exotic flowering plants, this is as near to Man Friday's Treasure Island as one can imagine. This authentic Thai-style house was built in teak and designed with amazing attention to detail, along with a multitude of treasures and artifacts that the designer collected from his travels around Thailand.
The entrance to the villa sets the scene for the rest of this outstanding Koh Samui property. The striking entrance gate and long stone driveway lead down to the main villa through a lush private garden that is home to a multitude of tropical plants, trees and flowers. A green lawn fringes the long swimming pool followed by an arched lily pond entrance, which takes you to the main house overlooking the Gulf of Thailand, the Angthong National Marine Park, the Five Islands and over to the mainland.
Opening directly onto a secluded beach, spectacular surroundings and cooling sea breezes, the spacious lounge features two large comfortable sofas and authentic Thai style armchairs. Surrounded by interesting artifacts and Thai antiques you'll find yourself being taken back to the 19th century colonial times of Indochina. The villa manages to subtly incorporate modern comforts with old-world charm, offering the best of both yesteryear's allure and today's conveniences.
Here, is a place of relaxation, serenity and escape. The house is designed to allow places to gather as a group, or escape to your own peaceful retreat, catering to both socializing and soulful reflection. For those who must catch up on the news or sports, or just want to escape into a movie, there's also a TV, as well as a music system. The dining space for 8 is served by a fully equipped kitchen, while outside, a further Thai-style kitchen allows the in-house staff to prepare delicious meals (on request).
This Koh Samui sunset beach villa boasts four bedrooms, two of which are located in their own separate buildings adjacent to the main villa. The first separate pavilion literally folds open onto a beautiful 10 by 3.5 meter swimming pool, providing the ultimate private retreat from the heat and putting the final touch to this quite magnificent property in Samui.
The second pavilion (mirroring the first) is slightly set back to the side of the main villa giving it a sense of privacy along with exceptional sea views and its own private terrace. Both bedrooms have high gable roofs with vaulted ceilings and charming, rustic antique furniture retaining the authentic Thai feel, but both with comfortable mattresses with king size and luxurious cotton bedding, ceiling fans, air-conditioning, a small fridge and a modern shower en-suite.
Open to stunning sea views and overlooking the private tropical garden from the second floor of the main house, is a further double bedroom. Set in the triangular roof gables this bedroom exudes character and charm and comes straight from a scene from a storybook.
While attached to the main house, the fourth bedroom is a favorite with the kids, furnished with two single beds (can be made into a king size bed), poised in front of a large wall-mounted flat-screen TV. This room can be used as a fourth bedroom with all the comforts of the other bedrooms, such as air-con and an en-suite shower room. Alternatively, it has the flexibility to be set out as a TV/chill-out room where it can be a private place to catch up on the news or watch a movie in comfortable and cool surroundings.
The villa has a resident Thai couple, who will welcome you with a cooling drink, show you around and are there to ensure you have a comfortable stay. They provide breakfast in the morning whilst lunch and evening meals can also be ordered. Our efficient staff are always available but never intrusive. Both speak great English and take pride in welcoming guests to the beach villa.
