Villa Gondang is a luxury beachfront estate set amidst 3000 sqm of superbly landscaped gardens, directly on a quiet, unspoilt white sand beach.
The estate enjoys stunning sunset views, with a vista including Big Buddha, and other neighbouring islands. The villa is designed in the traditional southern Thai style, with a colonial influence.
The designers’ vision was to create Samui’s most exclusive dream house, set in fantastic grounds. Villa Gondang has been thoughtfully and uniquely designed to take full advantage of the magnificent views, to capture the cooling sea breezes, and maximize enjoyment of outdoor living.
The regally proportioned main house straddles a vast pond, with cascading waterfall feature, exotic fish, and lotuses. The main entrance stairs take you over the pond to a huge hardwood deck, with private entrances to four en-suite bedrooms, and the main living room. The living room is exceptionally large, with a double vaulted, wood paneled ceiling, and wooden mezzanine gallery. Furnished to the highest standards, with a 50" LCD home theatre system, bar, and dining table with seating for ten, Villa Gondang's cathedral height living room takes tropical living to new heights. Direct sea views through sliding glass doors, an additional bathroom, and expansive hardwood decks extending on both sides, make this exciting living room perfect for entertaining.
The four bedrooms, like the living room, are fully air conditioned, with additional ceiling fans, and open onto the rear hardwood deck and sea views through sliding glass doors. The bedrooms feature hardwood floors, and custom built-in furniture, with 32" LCD home theatre systems, DVD, large wardrobes, and King sized beds. The en-suite bathrooms are elegantly tiled in natural slate, with sunken baths and showers. Two of the bathrooms also feature open air showers with sea views.
From the vast rear deck, running the entire width of the villa, a wide wooden staircase leads down to the beachfront garden, with five salas, (Thai pavilions), a large freeform infinity edge swimming pool with Jacuzzi, and a lotus pond. The stunning view from the deck is enhanced by the infinity effect of the pool flowing into the lotus pond, which in turn flows into the sea. The lush garden is landscaped with a diversity of tropical palms.
The salas, which are all fitted with ceiling fans, are ideal for enjoying the tropical climate, sea breezes and views. The largest sala is the central dining sala, which overhangs the pool. The kitchen sala is fully equipped, and also houses an outdoor bathroom. The beachfront living sala, spa sala, and snooker sala complete the pavilion facilities.
The entire estate is walled for total privacy. Staff quarters and carport are located in a separate building opposite the main entrance.
Entertainment facilities include a 50" home theatre system, a large library of DVD movies, TVs with DVD players in all four bedrooms, a snooker table, meditation sala, and many extras to make your stay more enjoyable. Welcome baskets burst with fruit and savory delicacies, and a complimentary bar offers a selection of alcoholic beverages, soft drinks, coffee and tea.
Breakfast is included, with a wide menu served to suit all tastes, as well as a complimentary house menu available until 21:00.
Located on the northeastern tip of Koh Samui, approximately 10 minutes from the airport, 5 minutes from Big Buddha beach, and 10 minutes from Chaweng’s beach, restaurants, shops, and nightlife. Santiburi championship golf course is around 20 minutes away.
