This 6-bedroomed villa is ideally located on a private estate on the hillside in North Chaweng. Visitors are close enough to the hustle and bustle and all that Chaweng has to offer, yet away from the noise and crowds that accompany Samui’s busiest beach. Of course, if you’re after a quieter beach, the picturesque beach at Choeng Mon is only a 5-minute drive away.
The spacious, well-appointed Sukham is the perfect combination of areas for private reflection, as well as spaces to come together as a group and socialise. The villa sprawls over three levels, with the living and dining room, as well as all six bedrooms taking full advantage of the amazing views. Baan Sukham makes the ideal ‘fair share’ option, as all six bedrooms are of equal proportion, and all offer king-size beds, making it the perfect choice for groups of friends or extended families visiting Samui.
On entering through the ornate wooden gate, you’ll cross a lily pond to the entrance hall. On this level, you’ll find the open-plan air-conditioned lounge and dining area, which opens up completely to the outside living space for indoor-outdoor living. Flop-in couches in neutral shades are accessorised with splashes of colour with vibrant scatter cushions and orchids. Open the sliding doors to enjoy the tropical breeze and extend the lounge to the pool deck, or if you want to escape the heat, make use of the air-conditioning, and the floor-to-ceiling glass means your views aren’t compromised. A central music system allows you to enjoy your favourite tunes both indoors and outdoors while soaking up the sun by the pool.
The 12m rim-flow swimming pool is surrounded by a wooden deck, and is flanked by comfortable cushioned sunbeds to one side, as well as an outdoor dining table for enjoying alfresco meals plus a wet bar in the pool where you can sip your favourite cocktails. The covered terrace bridges the lounge to the pool and offers shade from the heat, yet to the side of the pool, you’re able to make the most of the tropical sun. This is the ideal spot to fire up the barbecue and sample the local seafood from the fresh markets. This indoor-outdoor living space is where guests can come together to enjoy the continental breakfast on offer, as well as evening cocktails, or lazy days by the pool.
The first of the bedrooms lies on the entrance level, and leads out onto the pool deck. A staircase leads to the upper level, where you’ll find a further three bedrooms. All six air-conditioned bedrooms offer king-size beds, TVs, dressing areas, and en-suite bathrooms with rain showers. The three upstairs bedrooms open up to a covered deck, and all boast impressive sea views. Wooden floors, crisp white linen and neutral tones all make for a calming space to relax and unwind. A covered, seating area upstairs services these three bedrooms and forms another spot to chill.
From the living area, stairs lead down to the lower floor. Here, you’ll find the remaining two bedrooms, as well as a vast area for indoor entertainment. These bedrooms are of a similar size and design as those on the floors above, and one offers a private deck area with seating. When you’re in the mood for a little digital entertainment, relax in the home theatre, equipped with a projector, and furnished with comfortable seating to recline and enjoy a movie from the selection on offer. The spacious playroom includes a pool table, and an alcove leads off from here, offering electronic TV games for the youngsters, or young at heart. This indoor entertainment area makes the ideal escape should bad weather set in, or you’re in need of a break from the sun. It also forms a great chill zone for any teenagers in your party, while the adults relax in the upstairs living room.
