Island Wow Factor at Baan Silavaree
Bathed in stunning ocean views this Koh Samui private villa is the perfect stylish tropical getaway.
A short drive from the soft sand of Laem Set beach, Baan Silavaree provides a rare tropical hillside escape for those looking to really get away from the hassles of life. Positioned within the exclusive Santhikiri Estate in southwest Koh Samui, this spectacular private villa is also a short drive from Taling Ngam beach, and offers a laid-back private paradise setting. For a livelier beach scene, popular Lamai beach is still just 20 minutes to the north.
A stunning vaulted living space with a thatched ceiling forms the central hub of the property, providing exquisite spaces for guests can relax. The property provides around 55sqm of private living space in total, so there’s plenty of room to spread out. There’s also half an acre of private gardens for those that wish to enjoy the outdoor areas. A two-storey building houses the main accommodation, with an open-plan living and dining area downstairs and three king size guest bedrooms – all with ensuite bathrooms – upstairs. The fully equipped kitchen also features its own Nespresso coffee machine – perfect for a morning coffee overlooking the ocean. There are also two standalone structures outside the main villa that house two twin rooms – perfect if you’re travelling as part of a large group. Outside, a private 12m saltwater infinity pool surrounded by limestone decking boasts gorgeous views of the ocean. An outdoor barbecue, kitchen and bar provide the ideal spot for al fresco dining and parties. The Santhikiri Estate also boasts a selection of communal facilities and services, including 24/7 security staff, a common area swimming pool and a yoga sala.
The layout of this striking property responds directly to the hillside position and the contemporary Thai-style architecture has been designed to make the most of the magnificent vistas. Guests can unwind in relaxing, stylish surroundings – modern and traditional at the same time. Thick teakwood beams and redwood balconies lend the property a sense of authenticity, while antique Indonesian Batak doors create an eye-catching focal feature and an eclectic array of imported pieces – including a selection of contemporary artworks – infuse the space with character. Tibetan furniture, Balinese burled teak wood coffee tables and a Portuguese slate centre island in the kitchen give the property its unique, visual appeal. Plush soft furnishings, sisal rugs and custom-made sofas also wok in harmony to ensure the entire space feels homely and welcoming from the moment you step inside. Sliding doors in the main living area and expansive swathes of glazing in each of the bedrooms draw natural light inside, as well as allowing guests to take in the glorious sea views.
At Baan Silavaree service is second to none, and from the moment guests arrive at the property they can be sure that the villa’s small but dedicated team of staff will do their utmost to attend to all their needs. The housekeeping team ensures the property remains spic and span throughout your stay, and the villa manager is able to assist in organising various activities and excursions around the island. If you fancy getting a massage, the villa manager will also be able to arrange for a professional spa therapist to come to the property, so you can enjoy the luxurious spa experience without even having to leave the house. For those travelling with children, baby-sitting services can be arranged and a Toyota Fortuner SUV with driver is also available upon request.
Thanks to its position near Laem Set beach on the southwest coast of Samui, Baan Silavaree is the perfect property for guests that want to make the most of Samui’s natural treasures. The Laem Set peninsular is famous for its unspoiled natural vibe, and attracts those seeking the authentic side of island life. Taling Ngam Beach to the northwest offers a slightly more developed atmosphere with a five star hotel offering world-class restaurants to enjoy. Stunning views of the Ang Thong National Marine Park are among the highlights of both beaches, and both are great for swimming too, but with your own private and communal pools, the peace and tropical beauty of the villa will most likely prove too inspiring to leave behind, even for a day.
