Walk up the terracotta tiled stairs from its surrounding garden and make your way through white-washed walls to a large open landing, a spectacular infinity pool and views out over the Andaman Sea.
This villas pool is elevated above Kamala’s village below and offers sweeping, uninterrupted views over the Andaman Sea. The half-moon infinity pool is flanked by an entertainment deck and a private entrance to the main bedroom. Floating cement stepping stones split the pool in two and separate a smaller wading pool that includes a large underwater skylight allowing natural light through to one of the ground floor rooms.
The semi-detached living space on the top floor of this villa not only features an outdoor entrainment area, but an open-plan living and dining room, with floor-to-ceiling glass sliding doors. Open the doors to this spacious living area and allow the outdoors in. Views of the pool and its suspended pot plants, surrounding bougainvilleas, frangipani and palm trees, and views of the Andaman Sea, make an unforgettable spot for a dinner party.
The open-plan kitchen of this villa is modern and spacious, but most importantly, functional. Finished in a polished grey with chrome and with granite kitchen bench tops, it includes extensive modern amenities along with glasses, cutlery and crockery ready for entertaining a large group. The eight-seater lounge and dining room table for up to 12 guests are complemented by a small bar and barbecue area outside, allowing for several different dining options and inside-outside entertaining. Polished wooden floorboards show themselves off between well-appointed wooden and brown furnishings, a magnificent display bookshelf, as well as a modern television and sound entertainment unit.
Opposite the living and dining area, on the other side of the pool and taking up the other half of the top floor of this villa, sits the master bedroom. Finished with wooden furnishings, the bedroom interior features lime and burnt orange themes mixed with Balinese and Thai ornaments. A separate office space to one side, ocean views and a beautifully appointed en suite bathroom make this bedroom quite unforgettable.
The bedroom’s office is simple and roomy, with a desk overlooking the pool and the sea, as well as a small day bed perfect for an afternoon nap. A secret back door escape and spiral staircase to the ground floor allow frustrated workers a getaway to Kamala’s near-by beach. But this office space invites workers to write away to their heart’s content: the Andaman Sea, framed by palm trees and jungle-like foliage make a perfect picture.
The master bedroom’s beautifully appointed en suite bathroom is flanked by an enormous wardrobe, and includes a polished cement finish, views through the bedroom and out to sea, as well as an outside private bathtub. Take a bubble bath here, in the middle of the Thai jungle, and wash away your worries, before rinsing off in the outdoor heated shower.
The ground floor of this villa includes three separate bedrooms, one of which can double as a second master room, complete with en suite bathroom and television entertainment unit.
The first room downstairs makes a perfect twin bed children’s room, and features a long desk and two single beds, fun paintings above each bed, large wooden wardrobes and a separate terracotta tiled shower and bathroom finished in polished cement.
The second room on the ground floor has a double bed and a day bed, a walk in wardrobe, its own sand-washed landing with a private balcony and en suite bathroom.
But the third bedroom, which could double as a second master, is the most surprising of the ground floor rooms. It’s spacious and includes a queen-sized bed, television and two-seater couch. The highlight however is the en suite bathroom with its enormous two-adult bathtub overlooking nothing but Phuket’s thick green jungle. Huge glass windows alongside the bath allow for an incredible and untouched view, but complete privacy. Draw a bath here, take in your jungle-like surroundings, and forget there’s anyone else in the villa.
