The retro lounge and dining room and sleek white kitchen with breakfast bar form the heart of Villa Sammasan, all set in a large open space. Floor-to-ceiling glass panels across the front allow the room to be opened fully to the pool terrace and the balmy tropical breezes or closed for air-conditioned comfort. The lounge features a silky soft leather suite and low tables piled with books for all ages, with fabrics on the wall and floor adding a plush, warm ambiance.
The dining area is whimsically furnished with a zinc-topped table for eight and bright yellow metal chairs set under a row of candy-coloured lamps. A wall of display cabinets presents eye-catching trinkets and books, and houses the iPod dock that’s connected to built-in speakers in this room and out on the pool terrace. Just behind the dining area is the modern kitchen with its full set of appliances hidden away behind shiny white wall panels and cupboards for a more minimalist look. The breakfast bar offers seating for four, and a great perch for watching the villa chef in action.
Villa Sammasan’s media room on the mezzanine level is the only room without a view, which together with its subtle lighting adds to its retreat-from-the-world feel. The soft L-shaped sofa arranged to face the television will easily sway you to settle in for the evening.
Villa Sammasan’s pool terrace is a well-designed tropical oasis. The 9-metre infinity pool in shiny blue tiling blends perfectly with the sea and sky. Lounging choices abound, with a shaded sala at one end of the pool furnished with sunken bench seating, a built-in sofa, plus sun loungers and a sofa set in a slick moulded white design. Just add sunglasses and a cocktail for Instagram perfection.

Thank you for the opportunity to share your wonderful home with us it has been a most enjoyable holiday. We have stayed eights nighand thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere of your home, the peace and security (no neighbours on either side during our time) so made for a very secluded and intimate stay. We enjoyed our walks along the beach, eating out at local restaurants and the atmosphere that surrounds Surin (the walk back up the hill to the house was challenging but we made it every time – good work out)!!! To the wonderful “team” - Sunny, Yao, Sao and Kamaya – a BIG thank you for your helpfulness during our stay. The meals cooked were mouth watering delicious, attention to details of cleaning and linen service were amazing and the information provided was most needful. Thank you Yao for the tips on making your great sauces!! From Australia we will be thinking of you all.

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.
