Villa Sammasan’s master suite offers total seclusion and the widest views over Surin Beach. The chic bedroom suite occupies the whole of the top floor of the villa and is furnished with a king-sized four-poster bed, writing desk and chaise longue set under a vaulted whitewashed ceiling. Striking artwork adorns the walls and sliding glass doors lead to a private balcony with a built-in sofa and, yes, those fantastic views. The ensuite bathroom lies off a corridor fitted with a bank of teal-painted closets and featuring Sino-Portuguese design touches. Quality lighting and floor-to-ceiling windows add a glamorous glow to this large bathroom with its decadent sea-view jacuzzi, his-and-her vanity sets and a rain shower.
Next to each other on the lower floor, the villa’s two guestrooms are of a mirror-image layout with private balconies and ensuite bathrooms with showers and single vanity sets. The twin-bedded room, with a rollaway extra bed, is splashed in blue and white. Artwork features elephants and teddy-bears, making this room ideally suited for children (or playful adults!), while the queen-bedded room has a more sophisticated tone, decorated in rich red with an intricately carved wooden wardrobe and black four-poster bed.
Sammasan is a vibrant villa brimming with life and colour, from its superb sea and tropical sky views to its whimsical interior spaces and the warm hospitality of its staff.
Resting on a hillside within the exclusive Surin Heights estate overlooking Surin Beach, Sammasan is well situated for enjoying Phuket’s enticing sights and nightlife and is ideal for families or groups seeking a private retreat. Indeed, the villa serves as a family escape for its owners; the word ‘Sammasan’ is derived from a combination of family names.
Spread over four levels, Sammasan is a true home away from home. Indoors, the main gathering spot is the large open-plan living, dining and kitchen area. Bright with eye-catching touches including a zinc-topped dining table circled by sunny yellow chairs and overhung with a trio of colourful pendant lights, the room is fronted by floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors that flood it with natural light and give easy access to the pool, sun terrace and shaded sala. Down half a flight of stairs on the mezzanine level is the media room with TV/DVD player and ultra-soft sofas to sink into.
The entire top floor is taken up by the lavish master suite, a large space with breathtaking sea views best enjoyed while soaking in the bathroom’s jacuzzi tub or out on the suite’s comfortably furnished private balcony. Two brightly hued guest bedrooms, one with a queen-sized bed and the other with twin beds, are tucked away on the lower floor, each with an ensuite bathroom. Each room is adorned with a lively mix of paintings and art pieces that exude the villa’s fun character.
Included in your stay is the service of four dedicated staff including a Thai chef who is available for all meals, and a manager providing guest service in the villa as well as assisting with tour and dining reservations, transport, spa treatments and more.
Just down the hill is Surin Beach, an 800-metre stretch of sand that has been designated a royal park with the simple pleasures of sea, sand and shade to enjoy. Along the streets of the village approaching the beach are some of Phuket’s finest dining spots, spas and shops, while Kamala and Bang Tao beaches with a range of beach clubs, seaside restaurants and watersport activities are just a few kilometres away.
