Villa | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Translated from Thai the name stands for House at the Sea. That is exactly what it makes unique because you can hardly find villas located directly at the sea in this pristine area. You just have to walk 25 meters through the resort garden along the swimming pool before you enter the 7 km wide Bang Tao beach with a lot of typical Thai restaurants. Two other pristine beaches can be found within 5 minutes driving: Surin Beach and Lem Singh. At the left side your neighbor happens to be the famous Amanpuri resort located on a mountain which is separated from your house by a small river. A branch of the most luxury hotel chain in the Far East visited by celebrities from all over the world.
Baan Chai Nam is located in a popular but sophisticated area. Unlike the congested and heavily touristy Southern part of the island the villa has been built in a high class residential resort. Just 30 minutes driving distance from the airport. In the direct environment four exclusive golf courses including the well known Blue Canyon, gorgeous beaches and authentic Thai as well as luxury international restaurants. There is a Thai restaurant on a distance of 40 meters of your house. The chef will be pleased to serve you a Thai lunch or dinner at home course by course.
The owners Denise (she founded Domus, the worldwide known company in interior and furniture design) and Fernand (architect) combined their creativity backgrounds. They are also the owner of the typical Thai style villa 'La Difference' which you can find on the internet. Baan Chai Nam is a balanced mix of western and Thai ingredients. The result is outspoken and astonishing.
The ceiling in the centre of the comfortable living room is 8 meters high which is offering a most impressing sea view. The furniture is contemporary and includes cable TV, DVD, CD and iPod sounds. The open kitchen can cleverly be hidden using frosted glass and light wooden sliding doors.
The three bedrooms have en suite bathrooms including air conditioning. The master bedroom with a walk in closet and bathroom with rain shower en suite is separated from the guest rooms by a patio under the overhang of the roof. From the master bedroom and patio you can also enjoy the magnificent sea view. This central pavilion gives you access to the open marble whirlpool spa bath.
The guest bedrooms have mosquito screens allowing for natural breezes and ceiling fans.
In the tropics you like to live outside of course. For that reason the main entertainment area is the magnificent private pond side sala (a grass covered roof on 4 columns in Balinese style ). Sitting there you are surrounded by the coconut trees from the Amanpuri mountain and two tier decorative ponds. Enjoy your cool drinks or meals at a massive wooden table, hewn from a single tree trunk. The sala is provided with a wet counter and a BBQ.
