First there’s the jaw-dropping view of the island’s entire west coast stretching as far as the eye can see, then there’s the sleek, modern design and layout and finally the astounding beauty of the tropical nature which envelops the villa.
Set high on the lush green slopes of Samui’s mountainous north-west coast, 45 minutes from the airport, Splash is one of three exceptional luxury villas ‘Lime Samui’ designed by multi-award-winning GFAB Architects. With 5 spacious en-suite bedrooms for up to 12 guests, the villa is designed over several-levels, stepping dramatically down the hillside with an expansive, dazzling white terrace and 20-metre infinity pool as the social focal point.
The ‘Great Room’ connects elegant living and dining areas with a fully-fitted western-style show kitchen for breakfast and casual dining.
Large comfortable sofas sit snugly in a sunken lounge with a large flat-screen TV and opposite, a dining table for up to 10. An open staircase ascends to a study with private terrace and panoramic views.
Merging indoor and outdoor living with folding glass doors, this area opens directly onto the pool terrace where shaded day beds and sun loungers capture the cooling coastal breezes and a covered sala is the perfect spot for al fresco dining and poolside barbecues.
Bedrooms overlook the view with king-size beds, and indoor-outdoor rain shower bathrooms, and Jacuzzi bathtubs in the case of the upper level suites. Cool sandstone terrazzo combines with blonde and dark polished wood finishes for an uncluttered, comfortable ambience in the upper level suites, while Balinese stone in pale lime hues, provides a distinctive design for others, and throughout the villa. Stylish contemporary furnishings complement the architectural style and Thai-inspired accents provide a subtle sense of place to this “ΰber” cool villa.
Splash offers plenty to keep you and your party entertained, day and night. A games room comes with a full-size billiard table for snooker and pool, and a plush home cinema invites you and your guests, up to 14, to sit-back and enjoy hundreds of movies while popcorn and snacks are served.
For fitness enthusiasts a gym comes with a variety of machines and an outdoor spa area overlooks the magnificent views.
Five hospitable Thai staff are there to make your stay as memorable and as relaxing as possible, from preparing outstanding Thai and international meals, creating your favourite cocktails, to booking spa therapists, yoga instructors, and arranging excursions for you and your party.
But who needs to go anywhere when you have the best right here. Watch the sea as it changes colour throughout the day – this is how the islanders tell the time - as boats and ferries crisscross the horizon, as one of Samui’s famous orange sunsets dips below the horizon, or sip a cocktail on the terrace and gaze in wonder at the star-filled night sky, this is truly paradise in every sense.
