Set on a hillside above Surin Beach, Baan Bon Khao is a tranquil escape with fabulous sea views. This stately four- bedroom villa combines Northern Thai and contemporary style, and will appeal to families and groups of friends.
Beautiful timber flooring and vaulted ceilings add a sense of majesty, complemented by tasteful furnishings and a mix of Thai, Asian and modern art and décor. A water fountain at the entrance, and a 12-metre infinity pool, further enhance the villa’s tranquil ambiance.
Pavilions at each end of the swimming pool form the villa’s elegant and cosy indoor living quarters. The fully equipped kitchen and dining room are housed in one pavilion, with the dining room positioned at the front corner to take advantage of the superb views of ocean and sky. A 10-seat dining table rests under the wooden peaked ceiling, and meals may be enjoyed in air-conditioned comfort or in the cool of a sea breeze by opening up the sliding glass doors. Wooden wall panels and flooring, as well as the Buddhist-themed artwork and décor pieces, add to the room’s warm and soothing tone.
The living pavilion of Baan Bon Khao features soft cream sofas, a home theatre system with 42-inch screen, and sliding glass doors on two sides to allow for natural light and optimal views. Keep cool with either air conditioning or the ceiling fan, and enjoy stretching out on the two triangular Thai-style floor cushions.
Each of the four spacious air-conditioned bedroom suites at Villa Baan Bon Khao feature en-suite bathrooms, walk-through dressing areas and large, privately screened windows. Warm wood flooring, colourful works of art and comfortable seating bring added luxury and a distinct personality to each room.
The Master Suite occupies the entire top floor of the central pavilion, and offers lofty views over the pool and across the sea. A spiral wooden staircase leads up to the suite, giving it a secluded feel. The bedroom area, furnished with a king-size bed, soft lounge chair, flat-screen TV and ceiling fan, sits grandly under a vaulted wooden ceiling with floor-to-ceiling windows across its entire frontage. In the large dressing room are teak wardrobes and a vanity table, while an ensuite bathroom comes complete with a double vanity, enclosed shower and a sea-view jacuzzi that couples will covet.
The Poolside Suite is just steps away from the pool on the ground floor of the central pavilion. This king-bedded suite offers the easiest access to the villa’s leisure, dining and entertainment facilities. Sliding glass doors from a raised terrace lead to the bedroom suite, a comfortable area with a double sofa and soft lounge chair. A spacious wardrobe is tucked away in the corner, while the ensuite bathroom features a double bathtub with overhead shower and a single vanity set in shiny black granite.
On the lower floor of Baan Bon Khao, at opposite ends of a long corridor, two twin-bedded guest suites make peaceful and private escapes. The rooms are similarly arranged; their bedroom areas furnished with twin beds that easily convert to make a king, and a soft lounge chair. Each room has a private balcony with either a sea or garden view. Adjacent walk-through wardrobes lead to the ensuite bathrooms, complete with double bathtubs, single vanities and showers.
Service is exceptional here, with a full complement of staff including a villa manager, chef and driver.
