Panacea Retreat Avasara Residence 1 at Bophut, Koh Samui
Luxury 5 bedroom villa, max 10 adults
Entering through the ornate gateway into the Panacea development, the first thing you notice is the feeling of luxury and sophistication. Natural stone walls add privacy to the upmarket homes and tropical landscaping enhances the surroundings, creating a reassuring sense of total quality.
The first villa you reach is Avasara, which means ‘opportunity and chance’, the perfect name for such an attractive and elegant home. Avasara combines striking architectural features, exceptional furnishings and natural materials with inspiring sea views from every room. Entering the house through the electronic gate into the driveway, the house opens into a well-planted, landscaped tropical garden with steps running down the side of the main living pavillion to a delicious ocean view pool. The entire villa exudes absolute comfort and indulgence. You can easily imagine spending hours simply relaxing and enjoying the comfort and tropical surroundings.
From the driveway you enter the impressive living pavillion with a terrace opening from the side of the main pavillion. The path from the main gate is fringed with a water feature and stone walls that create an appealing natural ambience. Large wooden doors open into an astonishing elevated living space that runs virtually the whole length of the property, with high, wood-lined, and vaulted ceilings, and windows on both sides that increase the overall feeling of space and grandeur. The whole front and side of the living area features sliding glass doors that open up to draw in panoramic views across the forested valleys, right down to the bay of Bophut and Samui’s many offshore islands.
Inside this vast space, an eye-catching pedestal dining table sits like a piece of art in the centre of the room. To the right is a sophisticated kitchen area with an island breakfast bar. All the high-end branded appliances are fitted in an outstanding kitchen that not only looks fantastic with light wood units, chrome fittings and marble surfaces, but is also well planned and designed to include everything guests need. There’s even a built-in wine cooler for all day refreshments.
On the opposite side of the dining table is the lounge area which has a flat screen TV mounted on a pine cabinet and surrounded by comfortable brown and white sofas and chairs, as well as contemporary ornaments and artworks. Running the whole length of the room is a balcony with an almost invisible glass barrier looking out over the garden and pool. All-weather chairs are poised for guests to take in the spectacular surroundings.
Stairs on both sides of the balcony lead down to the lower level of the villa where three appealing guest bedrooms face out across the garden, pool and views. A covered walkway connects the rooms and doubles as a shaded outdoor terrace. Each of the three bedrooms has ample built-in storage space and an en-suite rain shower room. All the rooms have king size double beds, making this an ideal family or group villa. High-quality furnishings and accessories, plush and stylish interiors make the bedrooms far more than simple sleeping spaces.
In front of this bedroom level a lawned garden leads to the pool terrace. To one side of the huge pool, sunken stools are served by a built in bar, incorporated into a covered sala or gazebo, which also houses a dining table and cushioned bench seats. This is ideal for lazy days snacking and relaxing or even for an al fresco feast or pool party.
To the right of the pool is the first of two master suites. Staying here will be an experience to remember. A vaulted wooden ceiling with glass at the front and back creates an airy and light atmosphere. Doors open directly onto the pool terrace and take in the spectacular views. There’s a separate dressing area and an en-suite that has twin sinks, a rain shower and an indulgent terrazzo bathtub with windows looking directly out across the pool and to the ocean. Again the furniture and the artwork in here are modern in design.
Steps at the rear of the lower master suite lead back up to the lounge area and from the steps, a door leads into the second upper floor master bedroom that mirrors the one below. Dramatic views and luxurious interiors create an atmosphere of cosseted privilege for those lucky enough to stay in one of these fine suites.
Avasara Residence is defined by its quality and luxury. The finish, the furniture and the layout are perfectly planned to make staying here a practical, as well as an enjoyable experience. A full team team of dedicated staff is on hand to cater to guests needs, including a full time chef who prepares delicious meals to order and an experienced villa manager to answer special requests and assist with bookings and travel arrangements.
