Villa Monsoon is a highly flexible holiday villa that would suit a large family with children as much as it would a group of young professionals on a long weekend break from a nearby city such as Bangkok or Singapore.
The villa’s slide-open living rooms, bedrooms and wide terraces truly make the most of the dramatic, elevated oceanview setting, with stunning views of the untainted beaches that frame Koh Samui’s northeast coast at Bang Por, and panoramic vistas over a turquoise bay to the sister island, Koh Phangan.
Steps from a private car park climb through the sloping front garden directly to the first of three multi-storey pavillions positioned around an 18 metre swimming pool.
This pavillion is home to three of the villa’s six ensuite bedrooms.
Two of them boast private, furnished terraces that look out on the breathtaking ocean views, while the third is a twin located at the rear and therefore ideal for younger guests.
A flat lawn in front of the lower bedroom offers the ideal spot for a barbecue. Stairs from the master bedroom access the pool lounge and bar, which is furnished with sofas and daybeds for evening gatherings.
Meanwhile, a door at the back of the lounge opens into a purpose-built soundproofed AV room complete with another large, sink-into sofa and wall mounted flat screen TV for movie nights or live sport beamed via the satellite channels.
Below the lounge, a games room and a modest gym with exercise machines provides additional options for active guests, while down by the car park, a private tennis court os also available for guest use.
Although not located right on the beach, the villa’s stunning ocean views easily compensate for the lack of sand, and the 18 metre pool, wide terraces and comfortable lounge and bar area provide the perfect place to pass some relaxing days exactly as you want them to be.
