Four pavilions are set within a seafront compound. At the centre is a courtyard with a covered seating area, and a staircase descends to the spa and gym one level below.
A 20-metre lap pool extends along one side of the villa towards the common beachfront terrace of the estate. Separate living and dining pavilions are connected by stepping stones over shallow pools. Glass doors fold back, opening onto the estate pool and a series of lawned terraces.
The third pavilion houses the Master Suite and one double ensuite bedroom, opening onto the main courtyard. Three additional guest bedrooms are located in a separate pavilion behind the main villa. These can be accessed via a common area path, and not from indoors.
All five generous and bright bedrooms feature king-size beds and ensuite bathrooms with single or double vanity, as well as walk-in rain showers or bathtubs. The decor of the bedrooms follows that of the rest of the villa, with off-white flooring contrasting with dark wood Thai-inspired furniture. All the bedrooms are air conditioned, and facilities include a ceiling fan, personal safe, flat-screen TV and either Bose or Sony sound systems.
Master Bedroom 1
Connecting to the main courtyard, this spacious and elegant suite features a four-poster bed, as well as an extensive wardrobe and dressing area. A vast, light-filled ensuite bathroom overlooks the pool with views of the sea, and has a free-standing ceramic tub and black stone shower console. The double vanity is finished with the same striking black stone, while a backdrop of tropical plants lend an outdoor vibe to this glamorous space.
In the same pavilion as the master, also connecting to the main courtyard, this comfortable double bedroom features a king-size bed and sitting area, along with generous wardrobe space. The ensuite bathroom has a single vanity and walk-in rain shower finished in black stone.
Bedroom 3 and 4
In a separate pavilion towards the rear rest two ground floor double bedrooms, each with its own private garden terrace and sitting area. The king-size beds are comfortable and the room reflects the same natural-light-filled ambiance as the villa’s main pavilion. The ensuite bathrooms are replete with bathtubs and walk-in rain showers, all finished in black stone. These two bedrooms are also self-contained with their own kitchen console with facilities such as a refrigerator, microwave, kettle, coffee making machine , and water dispenser.
On the level above, in the same pavilion, a large double bedroom with a king-size bed has its own expansive rooftop terrace with sun loungers, living area and sea view. An ensuite bathroom features a walk-in rain shower and single vanity. The room’s interiors reflect the muted palette of the villa, with accents of turquoise, and a kitchen console with a refrigerator, kettle and coffee making facilities make it self-contained.
The living and dining pavilions are the villa’s social hub, overlooking the seafront estate pool, common gardens and the azure sea beyond. Ceiling-high glass doors fold back to connect these two elegant spaces with the common pool and seafront terrace, for spacious modern living all on one level, or they can be closed off for air-conditioned comfort.
The living pavilion is furnished with a sizeable sofa and comfortable easy chairs, with occasional tables arranged around a statement wooden coffee table facing a giant flat-screen TV.
The dining pavilion features an impressive open-plan modern kitchen with separate service and breakfast counters all finished in black stone, and an elegant glass-topped dining table for up to 10 guests.
An indulgent spa and massage room is located a level below the dining pavilion, adjoining the gym.
At Villa Chi, it’s all about the sea views from the villa’s breezy pavilions. The doors can be pulled back to reveal lush tropical gardens shared with the estate, planted with soaring coconut palms, frangipani and other exotic plants.
The common seafront terrace is dotted with sun-loungers and relaxed seating. Running along one side of the length of the villa is a lap pool, ending with the jacuzzi and a shaded massage sala. On the other side are common tropical gardens and a common wooden deck leading down to the beach, and offering access to the estate’s shared beachfront pool.
Languish on the deck all day long, as you enjoy massages, dine alfresco, get a tan or just sip a cocktail as the sun sets. By day or by night, the from Villa Chi Samui is equally enthralling.
