After turning off the main Chaweng Beach Road, a short drive then leads through a cluster of stylish resorts before opening up right onto the beach at the north of Chaweng Bay. The image of this villa, located on the left, is almost as eye-catching as the beautiful island of Koh Matlang which lies straight ahead. This spot is the closest point between the two islands and at low tide it’s even possible to walk on the white sand bank all the way across.

Entry to the villa is from the rear, and you can tell by the plant-lined driveway and architectural style that this property is really going to be something special. At the entrance, an antique metal gong is set into a glass circle so that it appears to be floating in the center of the imposing white, wooden door.

Once the door swings open, you will be treated to an interior that is the epitome of style and luxury when it comes to beachfront living. Many modern Koh Samui villas successfully create external architecture and interior decor through a blend of contemporary and traditional features. This elegant home has achieved this goal with an understated air of superiority.

In essence, the architecture follows the Balinese format of three pavilions. These are positioned to form a central courtyard that encloses the swimming pool and directs the focus out to the beach and ocean. Upon arrival, it will be immediately obvious that the villa has been designed with a very contemporary feel, with white being the predominant color throughout both the indoor and outdoor spaces.

In many white-themed villas, the decor is brought to life with stark contrasting brightly-colored accessories, which often works to good effect. Here though, the home is animated with a much more subtle use of color and patterns with a simple smattering of stylish antique artifacts and pieces of furniture.

The entrance pavilion faces the ocean. On the right of this is a large garage area and on the left is a fitness room and staff quarters.

The two main structures on either side of the central swimming pool make up the villa’s living and sleeping areas. The long swimming pool is cleverly incorporated into these areas and forms an integral part of the villa’s living experience. The pool extends into the surrounding pathways with the use of stepping stones. At the beach end, these stones lead down into a covered pavilion that comes complete with comfortable seating. Here, you can relax with the pool on both sides and the ocean directly ahead. This is truly an idyllic spot and an exceptional feature of the property.

In the pavilion to the right, the first room you come to is a very well designed double bedroom. Overlooking the pool, this room has some great views. The styling here reflects the other rooms in the villa. Walls, floors and ceilings are all white with oversized frames holding vibrant green leaves providing the perfect interior accessories. Large mirrors hang on the walls and the bed is decorated with a green runner and floral patterned cushions.

A central walkway leads into the phenomenal en-suite bathroom with twin sinks situated on either side. There is a walk-in shower room and some doors that open to a private outdoor courtyard with tropical plants, stone sculptures and wooden decking all surrounding an indulgent oversized terrazzo bathtub.

This room has a connecting door that leads to the next double bedroom. In here, the bed sits against a floating wall under a vaulted ceiling, giving an overall feeling of space. The wall is adorned again with framed leaves and an enormous mirror. White angel statues on the floor contrast well with the verdigris Buddha images mounted in the alcoves above the bed.

Behind the floating wall is the en-suite bathroom with twin-sinks, walk-in shower and doors to an outdoor shower area.

Coming back onto the poolside walkway, you will find ornate candle holders, intricately carved antique furniture and beautiful bougainvillea in colorful pots. The stone terrace surrounding the pool has sunken spotlights which really bring the area to life at night.

After the second bedroom, there is a poolside recess where you will find a covered massage pavilion offering the perfect private space for relaxation while you enjoy an invigorating traditional Thai massage.

The next room is home to the open-plan kitchen, dining and living areas. This large room is extremely well-designed with the kitchen area defined by a long floating island feature, which boasts a built-in wine cooler and subtle black hobs. The back wall is lined with almost invisible white-gloss units which are punctuated only by the attached wall-mounted chrome appliances. Three long bamboo lamps hang above the island from the high vaulted limed wooden ceiling. Beyond this indoor kitchen, is a doorway leading out to an outdoor covered Thai-style kitchen.

Back inside and directly in front of the kitchen is the ten-seater limed wooden dining table with upholstered white chairs.

This entire open-plan area has warm wooden floors which work well to create a homely ambience in a contemporary room. The lounge is dominated by enormous comfy white sofas placed on a rattan rug around a limed coffee table. The sofas are dressed with white and blue cushions as well as a couple of silk cushions with traditional elephant designs.

A large flat-screen TV sits on a shelf with a variety of interesting ornaments. A rocking chair completes the overall homely feel.

Opening glass doors lead from the living area into a covered outdoor lounge area linking the indoor spaces to the outdoor area. Beyond this are the garden, the beach, and the ocean.

Walking across the beach in front of the villa, visitors will find daybeds and a large Buddha head sculpture mounted on a marble plinth with candle holders. This, of course, works to generate a romantic nighttime atmosphere.

Coming back across the lawn, you will approach the final pavilion. Here, there is another very stylish, garden-fronted, covered outdoor lounge area which links the master-suite to the garden. In the master bedroom, white painted floors are dressed with a rattan rug on which sits another rocking chair. A comfortable white sofa and coffee table are at the foot of the bed.

In this room, the contrast between modern and traditional is most apparent. Traditional blue and white ceramics adorn the coffee table. These are mirrored in the blue and white cushions arranged on the sofa and the bed. The bed itself is housed beneath a very contemporary white-boxed four poster arrangement, with some eye-catching wooden abstract artwork mounted directly above.

Doors on either side of the bed lead into the exquisite en-suite bathroom. In here, there is a dressing area, twin sinks and a truly breathtaking terrazzo bathtub set into a stone recess. There is also a walk-in shower area.

Heading back along the poolside terrace, walking past the sunken in-pool pavilion, you will come across another recess, opposite the massage area on the other side of the pool. In this area, there is a very large, private Jacuzzi tub surrounded by tropical plants and an overflow water feature.

The next two bedrooms are mirror versions of the first two in the opposite pavilion. They are both connected, while one has an outdoor shower and the other has an outdoor courtyard with sunken terrazzo bathtub.

This tour finally leads you back to the main entrance area where you can look through the whole property and really understand what an exceptional holiday experience this Samui villa offers.

This is a home which is not only pleasing on the eye but which is practical, offering some very flexible accommodation opportunities. The location is picture-perfect and the style and luxury on offer is sure to create lifelong memories.
