This is a private, six-bedroom villa that combines Thai-inspired architectural features with contemporary design. Cedar-shingled, pitched roofs and grey natural stone lend a distinguished look to the villa which blends harmoniously into its lush green hillside surroundings.
Arriving at the villa’s top-floor entrance, you are bound to be captivated by the spectacular view that unfolds. From here, steps lead down to a huge living and dining area with a magnificent, nine-metre high, wood-lined cathedral ceiling. Surrounded by folding glass doors, this impressive space opens directly onto a wide, wraparound terrace with a seamless glass balustrade to showcase the view.
At the garden level, a personal, 25-metre infinity pool hangs dramatically over the hillside, reflecting the glorious view. At one end of the pool, a large, Thai-style sunken sala is perfect for casual lunches, relaxing with a book or enjoying a pampering massage. The swim-up bar will keep things interesting if you choose to entertain, while a well-equipped gym with windows showcasing picturesque views will keep you motivated to stick to your fitness regime.
This is an exceptional villa that combines subtle elements of Thai culture with modern luxury and latest technologies to create a sanctuary of peace and privacy away from the beach crowds, yet close enough to connect to the vibrant Samui scene when required.
Designed over three levels, you enter Suralai’s gated entrance from the top. Steps descend towards the main living and dining area. One level below sit three identical double bedrooms and a walkway connects to an adjoining pavilion that holds two master bedrooms and one twin bedroom.
Stairs descend on both sides of the villa into the lawned-garden and pool terrace with a 25-metre infinity pool. At one end, you will find an imposing, Thai-style sala with wide comfortable daybeds, a dining table for up to 10, buffet and a swim-up bar. A separate staircase leads to a fully equipped gym.
Six spacious, luxuriously furnished ensuite bedrooms are stylishly designed with ceramic-tiled floors in cool grey to complement light grey textured walls. Elegant dark-wood furniture is accentuated with Thai silk cushions and accessories in vivid colours.
All rooms are air-conditioned with generous wardrobe and storage space, a personal safe and cotton kimonos for your use.
Living and dining area has a 75-inch Smart TV with a Chromecast box for IPTV; iPod and dock with wireless remote control; Bose surround-sound HiFi system with six zones including three outdoor speakers in the garden and sala.
