Villa Sammasan’s menu is a celebration of Thai cuisine with a good variety of dishes from the simple to the exotic, including some local favourites. A selection of Western dishes may be prepared as well. From adventurous diners to those who like the comfort of familiarity, all meals can be discussed and planned in advance with the chef and adapted to suit all tastes and dietary requirements.
Guests are encouraged to meet with the villa manager and chef soon after their arrival to plan meals and discuss their needs. A day’s notice is ideal to give the chef sufficient time to buy groceries and prepare meals. Guests who wish to self-cater have the full Western kitchen at their disposal, and are welcome to ask staff for help with the grocery shopping (charged at cost plus 20% service charge).
Prices for set menu meals are displayed in the villa menu while for individual dishes provisions will be purchased by the chef and charged to guests. Receipts will be provided either daily or at the end of your stay – as preferred. It is also requested that the chef be given a cash ‘float’ to cover grocery costs.
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.
