This villa sits in a boutique development designed by award-winning architect Gary Fell. The luxury corner unit is close to completion and is highlighted by panoramic views over Chaweng Beach and the Gulf of Siam, without compromising the privacy for the villa.
Situated just ten minutes from the International airport, this development offers the ultimate in luxury living. The villa features the ideal holiday open-plan living space with natural rock features and tropical landscaping and a flat, water pond roof. The villa spans two levels and is ideal for families or couples. All the bedrooms feature en-suite bathrooms with separate walk-in rain shower rooms. The bedrooms look out onto a rooftop pond, the water blending into the sea beyond and also features a private sun deck with breathtaking views across the palm-clad hills down to Samui’s white sandy beaches and turquoise sea. A secluded terrace sits at the front of the infinity pool, which also borders the luxurious open-sided living and dining area with adjoining kitchen.
In addition to the residential accommodation, central facilities comprise of a lobby reception, a gym/health club and parking for guests. Special features include water roofs, ponds and interesting walkways through the development to further focus on the panoramic 180 degrees of pure sea view.
The main building components are stone and concrete. Rocks are quarried from the site itself and form the base of the structures. Glass is double glazed though orientation of the project mitigates any major solar gain problems. It is envisaged that the clubhouse will include some solar collectors on the roof to power lighting in public areas.
The property has been outfitted with several energy efficiency and eco-friendly features including lighting, climate control, water, recycling and conversion. Lighting will use efficient LED systems and mechanical ventilation will make use of inverter type air conditioner. Extensive recycling of water is planned for reuse on the site. The overall design encourages maximum (natural) through ventilation and makes use of reflecting pools to help cool the interior through evaporation. Large overhangs and orientation help ensure minimum solar gain.
Features which improve the development as a whole and enhance the safety of the occupants include smart home system automation and a fire protection system installed in the basement and under the pool. The development also has safety features including extra-wide foundations with protection against earthquakes along with CCTV security and 24 hour manned security. None of these initiatives is required by local law.
