Tawantok is Thai for “sunset”, a totally apt name for this west-facing Koh Samui retreat. Looking out across the lawn and pools, the main rooms have huge glass doors that open to let the sunshine and tropical breezes in.
Just beyond the pools is the talcum-soft white sand of Lipa Noi Beach, arguably one of Samui’s and possibly Thailand’s most beautiful yet quietest beaches. Beyond that, one’s gaze is drawn to the warm, sapphire-blue sea and the indigo silhouettes of islands on the horizon, the perfect setting for each evening’s sunset spectacular.
Like its mirror-image neighbour, Tawantok Beach Villa 2 is absolute beachfront. Next to the beach is the 11-metre private swimming pool, with a large alfresco dining sala at one end, looking out to sea. Behind the sala, set in the well-maintained gardens, is the glass-fronted living, dining and kitchen pavilion.
To the other side of the garden is the palatial master suite with an unobstructed sea view.
The four guest bedrooms are arranged in a pair of pavilions just behind the master suite and living pavilions, each with its own furnished veranda.
Alongside the tennis court, which is shared by both villas, is parking space for two cars and staff accommodation with back-of-house services.
The social heart of Tawantok Beach Villa 2 is the bright living and dining pavilion, with its huge rustic wooden table, large comfortable sofas facing a wall-mounted TV screen and broad glass doors opening onto the garden and sea views from two sides. Above the dining area, under the eaves of the traditional Thai peaked roof, and reached via a spiral staircase, is a multi-purpose mezzanine room that could be designated as a children’s play area or massage room.
The villa’s 11-metre infinity-edge pool has a spacious deck furnished with sunbeds for admiring the wide sea view while topping up your tan. The beautifully maintained garden is ornamented with richly scented frangipani trees and pots of brilliant bougainvillea and royal lotuses, and alfresco dining is a treat in the beachside sala, just a few steps away.
The master suite at this luxury Lipa Noi villa is huge, its bright airy bedroom boasting panoramic views of the ocean. Behind the sleeping area is a spacious living and dressing room with comfortable chairs, a large TV and a capacious wardrobe with safe. To one side of this space is the large bathroom, with rain shower, large vanity and freestanding bathtub. Bathers can open the frosted glass doors next to their tub to enjoy sea views while they soak.
Under the sloping eaves above the master suite is a mezzanine bedroom furnished with a queen-size bed. This room shares the master suite’s bathroom and, together, they are perfect for families.
The four guest bedrooms at Tawantok Beach Villa 1 are identical with the exception that three are king-bedded and one has twin beds. Each also has a desk area and an armchair and, outside on the veranda, chairs for enjoying that first coffee of the day. All rooms have ensuite bathrooms with rain shower, twin vanities and a large wardrobe with safe.
All Tawantok Beach Villa 1’s bedrooms are fully air-conditioned.
Villa manager; chef; housekeeping and service staff; security. Additional staff (nanny/babysitter, masseuse, yoga/muay Thai/tennis instructor) available on request for extra charge.
