The View Photos

Check Availability

The View is an impressive contemporary structure that sits amid a forested garden. It’s been designed to take full advantage of the views over Taling Ngam bay and The Five Islands. A rock face with a waterfall cascading into the fishpond forms the backdrop to the entire villa. Stone, teak, glass and steel are combined to create an architecturally impressive structure and contemporary, yet comfortable furnishings are enhanced by fresh orchids and artwork. The villa is decorated in natural tones, with splashes of colour in the way of bold artwork and scatter cushions on the sofas. Every detail has been thought of, from the one-touch electronic blinds, to the spot reading lamps and music that can be individually controlled or piped throughout the villa.

The main villa building is on three levels. On the ground floor, you’ll find a 16.5m pool with jacuzzi, surrounded by pool deck with sun-loungers. Tucked into the rocks is a bar and open-sided lounge and dining area with a ‘beach bar’ feel. This pool area is flanked on one side by a large lawn, and on the other by a secluded massage sala and the gym, equipped with the latest fitness equipment (Ask Khun Opal to arrange private yoga or muay Thai lessons).

Glass stairs lead to the first floor and the more formal lounge, where a dove-grey sofa provides seating and the home cinema comes with a drop-down projector screen. Adjacent is a glossy-white professional kitchen complete with wine fridge and state-of-the-art coffee machine. The kitchen is open-plan to the party-sized 22-seater dining table.

The glass staircase continues to the second floor, which houses two luxurious master bedrooms. Across the lawn are two more master bedrooms each in their own pavilion. These four bedrooms are all equipped with king-size beds, bold artwork and garden bathrooms with rain showers. In addition, one of the rooms has a spa bath and what the staff refers to as the ‘sexy shower’ – set in the corner of the bedroom with views across the bay. A forested wooden path leads to the bright and airy children’s dorm room (three bunk beds sleep six children and there are two further roll-out beds) and a twin bedroom that shares a bathroom with the dorm room.
