Villa Name: Ban Sairee
Ban Sairee offers guests a warm welcome to the ultimate Thai island lifestyle. Designed as an authentic Ayutthaya-style Thai residence, the villas offer an ideal haven for families or groups of friends looking to enjoy a secluded holiday in exclusive yet natural surroundings.
Situated close to the guardian eye of Wat Laem Sor (the Golden Pagoda), staying in this unique villa is sure to fill you with positive spirit, which is one of the most important foundations for a good holiday. The property comprises two grand, connected living and bedroom pavilions, each of which benefits from close proximity to the ocean with stunning vistas of the picturesque offshore islands of Koh Matsum and Koh Taen from the wide terraces. An additional converted rice barn serves as a private guest pavilion.
Upon entering the beautiful teak wooden houses, you first step onto the expansive deck that winds its way around the two pavilions. One pavilion houses the property’s principal sleeping quarters, whilst the other is home to a spacious living area, as well as two bedrooms, one of which is the master suite.
The open-plan living space is fully decorated in an original Thai style and features a high wooden ceiling. It is elegantly dressed with beautiful water-hyacinth sofas and a long classic solid teak dining table. There’s also a fully equipped kitchen and an adjoining TV room when guests want to kick back and relax.
On the large wooden terrace you will find a striking antique dining table as well as relaxing sun loungers that look out towards the tropical gardens and the ocean. When its time to eat, guests have plenty of choices, whether it’s a candle-lit dinner in the living room or a BBQ on the sea view terrace.
The main villa is also home to the property’s newly refurbished master suite. Vaulted ceilings with exposed teak beams and rafters infuse the space with authentic Thai character, and plush silk soft furnishings give the space a stylish splash of colour. The children’s room in the main villa features solid wood bunk beds and can be accessed quickly and easily from the master suite, providing a well-connected space for the whole family to enjoy.
The sleeping pavilion incorporates three bedrooms. The first has twin beds, a spacious walk-in closet and an ensuite bathroom. From the relaxing bathtub you can zone out, gazing up at the surrounding palm trees, moon and stars through the skylight ceiling. During the day, this expanse of overhead glazing also allows sunshine to bathe the space in natural brightness. There’s also a refreshing open air shower.
The newly refurbished second set of sleeping quarters boast two twin beds, which can be joined together to form one double bed. A brand new ensuite has also been incorporated, making this flexible zone perfect for adults or children that are sharing. Adjoining is the third bedroom, which features a double bed, walk-in closet and complete bathroom with covered bathtub and another open-air shower.
All of Ban Sairee’s rooms are filled with authentic Thai-style furniture, with a wealth of genuine antique pieces peppered throughout the property. Glass sliding doors can be pulled open to maximise the spectacular sea views and guests can enjoy the refreshing sea breeze even while they relax inside the house.
Both pavilions offer direct access to the villa’s expansive lawned garden, which opens onto a secluded beach in a half moon bay lined with palm trees. The garden also features a generous private swimming pool and a private tennis court is located behind the main house for guests to make use of whenever they feel like a set or two.
