Laem Sor Beach, Koh Samui, Thailand

Ban Mekkala is a huge residence, finished with 6 ensuite bedrooms, all on the same level for big families with members of all ages to get together for a beachfront retreat.

Designed by renowned architect David Clarke, Ban Mekkala is absolutely the study in laid-back sophistication and modern tropical luxury.

Every feature in this Laem Sor beach-located resort-style private villa has been thought out – from its stunning entrance, the grand double-storey pavilion, stunning views towards the azure seascape, the pavilion-wrapped T-shaped pool, home theatre, and each of the 6 air-conditioned ensuite bedrooms bedecked in 3 distinctive styles.

The main living space is housed on the upper storey of the main pavilion, and serves as an all-in-one open-planned TV salon, dining room, gourmet kitchen, and open-air balcony that’s ideal for entertaining.

In contrast, the ground floor conveys the feel of the cloistered sanctuary, thanks to the central pool and inner courtyard garden.

Featuring 6 bedrooms including 2 master suites, each bedroom offers a private haven complete with king bed, entertainment system and an ensuite bathroom with outdoor courtyards or walk-in shower and bathtub, as well as direct access to the pool or sea.

For al fresco days and nights, a lovely stone path leads to a stunning sunken poolside pavilion to enjoy delicious feasts whipped up by your very own personal Thai chef.

About 20 minutes from Lamai, Laem Sor beach is off the beaten track, famous on Koh Samui for its ancient pagoda. Though it is not a swimmable beach, this stretch of sand has just a few private beach villas scattered about, allowing the idyllic setting to retain its tropical serenity.

Fronting the 25m pool is a sunken dining sala furnished with a 14-seater dining table and equipped with a wall-mounted TV. In the pool is a shallow area which is ideal for smaller children and a modest pool bar with sunken stools.

Left of the pool, a kitchenette is fitted with a fridge and barbecue unit, while an outdoor shower and guest bathroom is conveniently situated by the beach.

There is surround sound technology linked to every part of the house (inside and out), so your favorites tunes can be enjoyed from wherever you are!

The ground level houses all 6 bedrooms decorated in 3 distinctive styles in individual pavilions, along with a newly refurbished home spa suite, built amid a beautifully landscaped garden, all opening onto the lawn and pool.

The lounge area is furnished with comfortable sofas poised before a huge flat-screen TV (Satellite, DVD and XBox), plus wall-mounted speaker.

In the dining space, a 12-seater wooden table is served by a fully fitted western kitchen (including two large fridge freezers).
