Villa Suralai – Six Bedrooms Villa in Koh Samui Thailand
Suralai, which means ‘home of the angels’, is a private, six-bedroom villa that combines Thai-inspired architectural features with contemporary design. Cedar-shingled, pitched roofs and grey natural stone lend a distinguished look to the villa which blends harmoniously into its lush green hillside surroundings.
Arriving at the villa’s top-floor entrance, you are bound to be captivated by the spectacular view that unfolds. From here, steps lead down to a huge living and dining area with a magnificent, nine-metre high, wood-lined cathedral ceiling. Surrounded by folding glass doors, this impressive space opens directly onto a wide, wraparound terrace with a seamless glass balustrade to showcase the view.
At the garden level, a personal, 25-metre infinity pool hangs dramatically over the hillside, reflecting the glorious view. At one end of the pool, a large, Thai-style sunken sala is perfect for casual lunches, relaxing with a book or enjoying a pampering massage. The swim-up bar will keep things interesting if you choose to entertain, while a well-equipped gym with windows showcasing picturesque views will keep you motivated to stick to your fitness regime.
Villa Suralai is an exceptional villa that combines subtle elements of Thai culture with modern luxury and latest technologies to create a sanctuary of peace and privacy away from the beach crowds, yet close enough to connect to the vibrant Samui scene when required.
Designed over three levels, you enter Villa Suralai’s gated entrance from the top. Steps descend towards the main living and dining area. One level below sit three identical double bedrooms and a walkway connects to an adjoining pavilion that holds two master bedrooms and one twin bedroom.
The living pavilion is an expansive dining and entertainment space, forming the social hub of the villa. The staff encourages you to enjoy breakfast on the cool, shaded terrace as you admire stunning views of the sea and mountains. Gather around the long, white island bar for sunset cocktails before sitting down for dinner at the villa’s magnificent dining table that can accommodate up to 16 guests. A black-gloss and chrome, western-style show kitchen forms a striking backdrop for the bar counter which is set with high stools for casual dining and easy socialising. The Hollywood-style lounge is accented with a sumptuous white leather L-shaped sofa and easy chairs are scattered around a 75-inch flat-screen satellite Smart TV. Wraparound floor-to-ceiling glass doors connect to the wide terrace for seamless indoor and outdoor living, ideal for entertaining and special events such as weddings.
Suralai has been designed to maximise on its spectacular views from every aspect. By day, the changing colours of the sea mesmerise – this is how the locals tell the time – and evenings are lit by blazing, tangerine skies as the sun dips majestically over the horizon. The top-level terrace, which wraps around the living and dining pavilion, is furnished with an informal dining table for up to 10 guests and groups of large, comfortable rattan chairs are designed for relaxed socialising. A wide, sand-washed terrace, furnished with comfortable sun loungers and sun umbrellas, borders the 25-metre infinity pool. At one end, steps lead into a fan-cooled sunken sala with a vaulted ceiling and wide, cushioned daybeds, which surround another dining table for up to 10 guests. A swim-up bar with sunken bar stools makes this the hub of outdoor life at the villa. Extending from the pool terrace, a manicured lawn is lined with palms trees, making it an ideal outdoor venue for parties and intimate weddings.
Six spacious, luxuriously furnished ensuite bedrooms are stylishly designed with ceramic-tiled floors in cool grey to complement light grey textured walls. Elegant dark-wood furniture is accentuated with Thai silk cushions and accessories in vivid colours. All rooms are air-conditioned with generous wardrobe and storage space, a personal safe and cotton kimonos for your use.
Master Bedroom One
On the top level and closest to the main living and dining area, this master bedroom features a stunning, wooden vaulted ceiling with a fan, king-size four-poster bed and a private balcony with glass balustrade to showcase the magnificent view. Large, wooden doors slide open to reveal an expansive ensuite bathroom with cool grey ceramic tiles, carved teakwood features, a double vanity and a free-standing oval terrazzo bathtub overlooking the view.
Master Bedroom Two
Roll out of bed and dive straight into the pool when staying in this gorgeous pool access room. Opening directly onto the pool terrace and garden, the room boasts of panoramic sea and mountain views, even from its king-size four-poster bed. The room also features a private dressing area, furnished with a traditional Thai daybed, making it ideal for families with little ones. Here again, large wooden doors slide open to reveal an expansive ensuite bathroom with cool grey ceramic tiles, carved teakwood features, a double vanity and a free-standing oval terrazzo bathtub overlooking the view.
Deluxe Bedroom Three
Located on the lower garden level, this room features twin beds as well as a double daybed, and opens onto a landscaped garden with sea view. The ensuite bathroom has a single vanity and round, free-standing terrazzo bathtub overlooking the view. Steps lead down from this room to the lower garden terrace and gym.
Deluxe Bedroom Four, Five and Six
Each of these three identical rooms is furnished with a king-size bed. A wide, private, sea-view terrace is best for alfresco massages on the double daybed or just to lounge around. Ensuite bathrooms tiled in cool grey are fitted with double vanities, walk-in rain showers, and have separate WCs.
Located high in the lush green hills above Samui’s popular Bophut resort area, Suralai is just 6km from Samui’s international airport and 7km from the beautiful, palm-fringed, sandy beaches of the island’s main tourist centre, Chaweng and Chaweng Noi.
Thanks to its elevation, the villa enjoys spectacular views of the island’s north-east coastline and the Gulf of Siam all the way to offshore islands such as Koh Phangan (popularly known as ‘Full Moon Island’), as well as of the island’s striking mountainous interior with coconut palm-clad slopes, natural rainforests and dramatic waterfalls.
Circumnavigating Koh Samui by car takes just over an hour, so nothing is very far away. The key jumping off point for boat trips and excursions to many off-shore islands is a merely 6km away at Big Buddha.
Highly accessible and convenient, Villa Suralai is always a peaceful sanctuary away from all the noise and activity, waiting to envelop you in luxury.
