The homes at the brand new Miskawaan Estate on the north coast of Koh Samui offer guests all that's desired from an island break. The villas at Miskawaan are showpiece properties built with quality and class in mind. And guests are assured of peace and quiet to make the most of the superior beach location.From the minute you walk through the double wooden doors it's like entering a private tropical haven. Turning into the stoned courtyard you are faced with a colourful garden complete with ornamental pond. (the pavilion at the rear of the property has been retained by the owner and will remain closed to guests).
As you walk along the entrance courtyard there's a small seating area on the covered stone terrace that's perfect for reading or relaxing out of the sun. Turning right the terrace continues to a central garden area and the tropical atmosphere is enhanced.
Looking from the rear of the villa you can see the terrace split and run either side of garden, leading to two further pavilions. On the right side is the sleeping pavilion, housing one double bedroom and two twin bedrooms. Each of these luxuriously appointed rooms has an en-suite bathroom complete with an indoor and an outdoor shower room. This pavilion is L-shaped with one side running parallel to the garden and the other turning off to the right. This layout adds to the feeling of complete privacy.
To the left of the garden is the pavilion consisting of an outdoor bathroom, kitchen, dining area and lounge. The kitchen comes fully fitted with all required appliances and has a central island feature, this leads through to the dining area which is focussed around a teak dining table.
A wood panelled wall and beamed, vaulted ceiling creates a natural and spacious room which also has a further bathroom. The lounge area has teak-framed furniture with upholstered cushions facing the plasma TV with satellite and CD/DVD player. Glass doors take you from this room onto a covered entertainment area with seating. And from here you can walk across to the sala with a Thai-style roof and ceiling fans. Inside the sala is a large massage bed and outdoor dining furniture. A portable gas bbq is also provided. Speakers are built into the sala to allow your choice of music to be played outside.
In front of this is the lawned garden bordered with plants and a private gate leading onto the beach.
Running from the garden right into this villa is the dark blue-tiled saltwater swimming pool. This long narrow pool creates a focal point which although completely outdoors, penetrates right into the heart of the living areas. At the end of the pool a decked area joins with the central garden which is planted with mature bamboo trees and has an antique looking statue that matches perfectly with the tropical atmosphere of this property.
What's most eye-catching is that everywhere you look you see tropical foliage; every window and doorway has colourful plants framing the view. And the overall effect is completed by ornate wall carvings, intricate stone work and the clever positioning of pots and ornaments.
This design of this villa creates total seclusion in a natural and truly peaceful setting.
