Baan Silavaree is one of the unique luxury villas on the Santhikiri Estate, an exclusive residential community on Koh Samui's idyllic southwest coast, comprising 24 individual sites, with 19 homes, communal tropical gardens, a common area swimming pool and a yoga sala. The estate is privately owned and managed by the resident community, providing 24/7 security staff and site management. The villa also comes with a private vehicle and is a short drive from the award-winning Kamalaya Wellness Sanctuary and Holistic Spa Resort. There's a choice of restaurants, shopping outlets and bars on and around Lamai beach (20 minutes), while for a sophisticated night out, Nikki Beach is around 20 minutes' drive to the north.
Baan Silavaree offers the ultimate private island escape on a hidden tropical hillside that boasts breathtaking views across Koh Samui's palm-clad coastline and out to the mesmerising island-peppered waters of the Gulf of Thailand.The villa is part of the exclusive Santhikiri Estate on Koh Samui's untroubled southwestern shore - an area known for its pristine beaches, meditative views and incredible sunsets.
In recent years, this part of the island has become a favoured choice for sophisticated guests in search of barefoot luxury and absolute privacy.
The materials and designs used at Baan Silavaree have all been carefully chosen and created to blend with the untainted natural surroundings. The estate's plot coverage ratios of 20% guarantee the beauty and privacy of the community is maintained and remains protected.
The villa itself includes striking architectural features such as an 18-foot high thatched ceiling framed with thick teakwood beams, and the main building is surrounded by redwood balconies.
Imported limestone decks frame the property's 12-metre saltwater infinity edge swimming pool, which also boasts 10mm thick glass borders and rattan pool furniture.
Providing around 550 square metres of total inside and outdoor living space, with lush landscaped grounds and waterfalls covering over half an acre of private land, Baan Silavaree offers guests a rare opportunity to experience refined but authentic Island living.
Built on multiple levels into a dramatic forested hillside, Baan Silavaree boasts contemporary Asian style and luxury in abundance. Upper and lower level landscaped entrances invite visitors into the compound through antique Indonesian Batak doors, past cascading waterfalls.
Once inside, the villa's main two-storey building looks out over the infinity pool to the ocean beyond, and houses an open-plan living and dining area on the upper floor, as well as two guest bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms.
The interiors feature hand-made lighting fixtures that highlight the striking thatched ceilings, while antique Anglo-Burmese tables, Tibetan furniture, Balinese burled teak wood coffee tables, contemporary works of art, Sisal rugs, and custom made sofas built for comfort all create a unique, elegant and exotic sense of location.
Out on the redwood balconies, rattan chairs and tables offer guests supreme comfort for cocktail hour while they enjoy the stunning sunset views. A Balinese teak table seats ten for dinner served by an impressive kitchen that features a Portuguese slate centre island, slate countertops and custom built cherry wood cabinets with all the necessary utensils to prepare everything from an intimate meal to a dinner party for 50 guests (a private chef is available at extra cost).
Two stand alone one-bedroom ensuite villas sit either side of the main building and boast contemporary four poster beds with custom-built teak wood cabinets in their mezzanine bedrooms. The private living rooms feature 3.5 metre sliding doors that ensure guests wake to breathtaking seascapes every morning. Furnishings include sink-into sofas, coffee tables, armchairs and cabinets with hidden doors for the flat screen TVs and DVD players. A well stocked mini fridge, hot water heater, coffee and tea making facilities are also included for guests' convenience.
Each of the villa's bathrooms is fitted with teak surround sunken baths for two, indoor and outdoor showers, imported limestone mosaic tiles, imported slate or limestone floors, teak counters, and also boasts spectacular ocean views.
