A step away from the pristine Lipa Noi Beach on Koh Samui’s sunset western coast, Villa Akatsuki combines inner relaxation with a vibrant expression of barefoot-in-the-sand freedom. Classic blue-and-white striped beach loungers are positioned right by the beach, and actually on the sand too, along with a wonderful nest bed; perfect for curling up to watch magnificent sunsets across this quiet stretch of coastline. The water stays shallow for 100 meters, an ideal beach for families who enjoy fun days splashing about in the shallows.
Meanwhile, the three levels of infinity pools, including a kids’ pool and shaded sala, create a centrepiece; symbolizing the flow of the villa’s energy as it opens out to the spectacular beach scene with its wide-open sands, waters that stretch to the horizon and beyond, and endless blue skies. One of the pools features bronzed body contour reflective beds so sun worshipers can enjoy cooler lounging, while all the pools use a chemical-free UV filter system for a more natural dip.
With its laid-back beachfront position, Villa Akatsuki still affords incredible service with in-villa staff and round-the-clock security. Private dining is extraordinary with Chef Noi, a culinary wizard creating an eclectic menu to suit every occasion and personal taste; from sumptuous Thai feasts to incredible Japanese dishes and international fare. She also shares her talents too, offering master classes in the villa kitchens.
Featuring the villa’s A-Spa with a large heated whirlpool and doors opens out to the garden allowing you to breath the fresh island breezes, boasting design details of an upscale holistic treatment center you can find anywhere on the island.
The newly designed state-of-the-art fitness room maintains Villa Akatsuki’s design and living philosophy, surrounded by glass walls with the view of the greenery and the pool, bringing workout experiences to another level that is quite literally reflective.
The games room and big-screen home-theatre also absorb the villa’s inherent soothing energy, as does the living room spaces that are homely and comforting. The kitchen is well-equipped, and modern technology such as surround sound gadgetry ensure the simplicity of chilling out by the seashore is achieved with a contemporary approach. As well as a breakfast bar, there is sophisticated dining indoors with an al fresco dinner table too, as well as an outdoor sala and lounge seating with a BBQ by the beach.
