Villa Purana Residence in Panacea Estate Complex on Koh Samui, Thailand from 883 USD
A covered gate and walkway lead directly into the living and dining pavilion of Purana Residence. This impressive space with its ‘cathedral’ ceiling and expanse of folding glass doors extends the entire width of the villa, opening onto a wide covered terrace and the stunning island-and-ocean view.
An open staircase leads down from the terrace to the pool area, where the elegant master suite occupies a separate pavilion. The villa’s three guest bedrooms are located on the ground floor of the living pavilion, with a shared terrace and views of the pool and ocean.
Indoor living at Purana Residence centres around the main living and dining pavilion – an extraordinary room which extends the entire width of the property and opens onto a wide terrace and uninterrupted views.
A soaring ‘cathedral’ ceiling crowns this sumptuous space designed with cool, off-white ceramic floors topped with natural fibre rugs. At one end, a lounge is furnished with comfortable cream sofas, a chaise lounge and easy chairs set around an oval coffee table and wall-mounted TV. Tasteful decorative pieces include Thai table lamps, artefacts and curios.
A striking square dining table which seats up to 10, separates the lounge from a western-style open-plan kitchen with an island breakfast bar.
Wraparound glass doors can be folded back to connect with a wide furnished terrace, creating one seamless indoor–outdoor living and entertainment space that makes the most of the spectacular hilltop views.
Whimsical bronze sculptures depicting animals and fish create a striking centerpiece to the residence’s 20-metre infinity-edged pool – appearing to float above the water. The pool terrace extends the length of the villa, and is furnished with vividly cushioned loungers and sun umbrellas that catch the cooling coastal breezes.
At one end of the pool, a swim-up bar connects to a spacious, sunken living and dining sala with a built-in barbecue grill, drinks fridge and a dining table for up to 10 guests - a stunning spot for relaxed alfresco dining overlooking the view and Samui’s famous sunsets.
At Purana Residence, nature in all its tropical glory surrounds you. A wide variety of palms frangipani and other fragrant trees and flowers, create a luxuriant tropical setting in this outstanding private villa.
The villa’s four tastefully appointed ensuite bedrooms feature king-size beds, generous built-in wardrobes, ensuite bathrooms designed in warm sandstone with double vanities, walk-in rain showers, and a terrazzo bathtub in the master suite.
All rooms enjoy their own or a shared terrace with views of the pool, garden and ocean. Interiors feature off-white tiled floors topped with area rugs, warm wood and natural finishes and colourful Thai-silk accents. Flat-screen TVs, modern AV accessories and sound systems, personal safe and bedside controls for air conditioning are common to each room.
MASTER BEDROOM 1
The master suite occupies a standalone pavilion at one end of the pool, fronted by a terrace furnished with designer daybeds. The Thai-style roof reflects the architecture of the main pavilion and gives the suite a double-height ceiling and an ambiance of light and space. Wraparound glass doors open onto the pool terrace and guests enjoy a stunning panorama of the pool and view from its king-size bed, as well as from the bathtub.
DELUXE BEDROOMS 2, 3 AND 4
Set towards the back of the lawned garden, just below the living and dining space, are three similarly sized and designed guest bedrooms, each with a bright ensuite bathroom. These elegantly furnished rooms have floor-to-ceiling glass doors to the front that open onto a wide, shared terrace overlooking the garden and pool.
