Samsara Estate - Villa Leelavadee Reviews


Our Review

Overall Rating:

Groups of friends and couples will adore the privacy of Leelavadee’s location and its potential for entertaining, however we felt the villa to be particularly suited to families (one or two) since it has two twin rooms which share a balcony and two larger bedroom suites. Since the bedrooms are on the lower level we felt they were given more privacy and allowed the upstairs living/dining areas to be used exclusively for relaxing and entertaining. A garden surrounds the villa, but it is steep and was used more as an alternative route to different parts of the villa than for relaxing in. The swimming pool has an infinity edge and looks towards the sea through branches that – although providing Leelavadee with lots of privacy – do somewhat disturb the views. The gym and pool table offer diversion away from the living areas so that others can relax in peace and quiet, however speakers are wired throughout the villa if a background beat is desired. The home cinema really enhances the villa’s appeal for families and movie buffs, especially as the bookshelves of the media room are filled with a large selection of DVDs as well as CDs and board games. Since the large sofas in this room can be made into an extra bed, this room can also be used as a fifth bedroom if necessary (it has its own ensuite bathroom too).

Highlights

The entertainment and leisure facilities at the villa are first class; the fully-equipped gym and home cinema are definite plus. Having panoramic views over the bay and out to sea from this private, exclusive estate is also a highlight, especially if you wish to do very little except relax in luxurious surroundings.

Surprises

The bedrooms are a little dark. That said, dark bedrooms are good for sleeping in and you are unlikely to spend much time in them during the daytime! The ‘island’ jacuzzi on the terrace of the master bedroom does suffer slightly from a lack of privacy.
