Panacea Retreat - Kalya Residence Photos

Check Availability


Acclaimed landscape architect, Bill Bensley, masterminded the ‘organised wildness’ of Panacea Retreat’s tropical grounds, and his inspired landscaping continues throughout the villas’ hilltop gardens.  Kalya Residence’s simple yet well-planned layout is split over two levels, with indoor living and dining above, and the four bedrooms, swimming pool, dining sala and swim-up bar below.

Entering over a water feature, large wooden doors welcome you to the living pavilion, where floor-to-ceiling glass offers 180-degree views of Samui’s northern bays, beaches and the sparkling waters of the Gulf of Thailand to the front, and jungle-clad hills to either side.  An open-plan kitchen fitted with state-of-the-art appliances and a breakfast bar is situated at one end of this bright space, while a comfortable lounge area fills the other, focusing on a large flat-screen TV, complete with satellite channels, music system and DVD player.  Suspended above the square eight-seater dining table at the centre of the room is a chandelier of elegant Asian-style lanterns.  Bowls of fruit, bold flower arrangements, statues and objets d’art add interest to this comfortable and chic living space.  Couches are positioned on the balcony to enjoy the views and catch the breeze, and a guest bathroom serves this area.

Downstairs, the master bedroom is housed in a stand-alone pavilion opening onto the 20m swimming pool. Flanking the pool are plenty of umbrella-shaded sun loungers and the dining/barbecue sala and swim-up bar.  A further three bedrooms are set slightly further back, below the living area, overlooking the swimming pool and garden.

All four bedrooms are stylishly and comfortably furnished, and come with king-size beds (one of which is convertible to twin) and ensuite bathrooms.  All offer seating areas, a mini bar, as well as satellite TVs and DVD players.  The master suite, which is slightly larger than the guest rooms and has a vaulted ceiling, boasts not only a rain shower, but also a large, terrazzo bathtub.
