Villa Overview

Villa Samakee is a five-bedroom tranquil haven offering space, elegance and total privacy in the secured Layan Estate villa enclave, just minutes away from the soft-sand beaches of Layan and Bangtao on Phuket’s west coast. Ideal for extended families or groups, this spacious holiday retreat features a stunning 20-metre swimming pool and a full complement of quality services.

Villa Samakee’s lush tropical landscape, seamlessly connected indoor-outdoor spaces and expansive Thai contemporary design, offer a wonderful balance of private and fun spaces for families to enjoy, as well as providing a fantastic venue for weddings and special events.

Located in a peaceful residential area, this spectacular villa is a world away from Phuket’s hectic tourist centres yet it remains within easy reach of the island’s finest restaurants, spas and boutiques in and around a collection of luxury resorts in Bangtao Bay and only minutes away from the Dream Beach Club.

A sense of majesty ensues from the moment you arrive at Villa Samakee. Entering through its oversized teak front doors is to step inside another world; a true tropical escape. A long stretch of glimmering blue meets you on arrival: the 20 by 5-metre pool, where life in the villa revolves.

The spacious wooden pool deck offers a divine choice of spots to catch the sun’s rays. Towering fan palms and a rich variety of tropical garden plants create a vivid green landscape and a natural border that keep the villa ultra private and secure.

Inside, adding character and colour throughout the villa is a remarkable collection of art and antiques from traditional Thai temple spires to ancient Buddha statues to bright whimsical paintings, including several depicting Asian archetypes by Belgian artist Christian Develter.

A large living room with a gorgeous vaulted timber ceiling and two walls that open completely to the outdoors offers a nice spot for reading or enjoying a cosy chat with the family. The well-equipped Home Theatre, with 100 satellite TV channels, is a colourful, fun space for children and adults alike while a private study leading to a garden patio provides a quiet retreat. A formal dining room set in front of the superbly fitted out western kitchen has seating for 12+.

Each of the five bedrooms offers a very well appointed, peaceful oasis for couples or kids. Romance abounds in the upstairs master suite, which features a two-person terrazzo bathtub that overlooks the pool from its private bathroom.

The villa manager, chef, maid and concierge service ensure that every need is taken care of efficiently and with the utmost professionalism and care. Enjoy a full range of services on offer, from poolside massages to babysitting to booking a round of golf.
