Villa Michaela sits majestically at the top of a gentle mountainside, just a few minutes away from the beach and the airport, and this villa has magnificent views over the floating temples of Wat Plai Laem and out across the ocean.
The incredible oversized wooden gates swing open to reveal a beautiful inner courtyard. A wide tiled walkway is lined on either side by palm trees and leads directly through to the main living space. On either side of the walkway there's a sitting area and a pond with wide stepping stones leading to the wooden decked entrances of two bedroom pavilions. The whole courtyard is immaculately landscaped with individual ponds surrounding planted frangipani trees, oversized ceramic pots, stone statues and exquisite outdoor furniture.
Stepping into the enormous living area, and very white, space you're faced with a wall of glass overlooking the pool and the sensational views. Inside you're eyes are automatically drawn to the dramatic almost gothic styled black chandelier in the centre of the room.
The walls and floors are white terrazzo, the door and window frames are high quality wood which has been given a white-limed paint effect, as has the high vaulted wooden ceiling. Large comfortable sofas are also white and there's a huge round terrazzo-topped white dining table all combining to create a capsule of white space.
To provide a natural balance, the black chandelier is matched with black tables and lamps around the sofa, a life size black statue on the right as you enter, black candelabras on the dining table and a black framed mirror on the wall.
Hidden behind a floating wall on the left is the fully equipped modern kitchen with central island feature and all high-end appliances.
To the right is a glass encased floating light-wood staircase which leads up to mezzanine den. In here a comfortable day bed sits on a wooden floor facing a large flat screen TV whilst overlooking the lounge, the pool and out across the views.
The front of the open-plan living space opens to the poolside area which has extensive decking around the aquamarine-tiled infinity swimming pool. There's ample space for sunbathing on the terrace and an assortment of outdoor furniture for relaxing and soaking up the sun. There's a full outdoor dining table and chairs, and a stone built cooking/barbecue station. The pool has two decked island features, reached via stepping stones, which could be used for intimate and exclusive dining options or simply as extra sunbathing space.
Heading back into the entrance courtyard, two identical bedroom pavilions sit on either side and each contains two double en-suite bedrooms. The first bedroom in each pavilion has a floating bed with dressing area behind and flat screen TV in front.
The en-suite bathrooms in all of the bedrooms are simply breathtaking. The indoor/outdoor bathrooms are huge and each is presided over by a smaller version of the living room chandelier. A glass door opens to reveal a pebble surrounded sunken terrazzo tub which is the size of a small plunge pool, beyond that is a rain shower which is partially open to the sky with a bamboo cover.
On the other side of the glass door there are twin terrazzo sinks and a toilet space which has the walls lined with sunken shelves, each housing an Asian styled ornament or artefact. The en-suites for these four bedrooms epitomize the vision of extreme island luxury.
A walkway leads from both bedroom pavilions out to the pool and steps on either side lead down to the level below. The first room is set up as a billiards/games room and the next room is a truly enormous dedicated home cinema room, with twelve black leather oversized cinema styled chairs, complete with drinks holders sunken into the arm rests. It even has its own bathroom. This is probably the biggest dedicated home cinema on Samui and it has a cutting-edge audio/visual system to match the impressive dimensions of the room.
The final room in this row is another double bedroom with a flat screen TV and a phenomenal round terrazzo bathtub adding to the overall indulgence of this seductive bedroom space.
Set to the right of the swimming pool, on the lower level, a stepping stone pathway leads through the gardens to the spa. Inside you'll find a dedicated massage room, steam room, bathroom and shower room, all finished and furnished with style and quality.
