Located at Laem Noi on the island’s north-west coast, just 30 minutes’ drive from the international airport, Villa Soong is part of a prestigious gated-community of three-bedroom beachfront holiday villas. Views look out over the pool and garden to the beach. In the distance is the ‘Full Moon’ island of Koh Phangan and a cluster of over 40 protected islands that make up Ang Thong National Marine Park.
The modern look of Villa Soong, with its clean, linear design and cleverly interconnected spaces creates a pleasing living experience. A private entrance with stepping stones and a koi pond leads to the living and dining pavilion around which are three spacious ensuite bedrooms, each with its own covered terrace. Open-plan and open-sided in design, the living pavilion is the place for relaxing and socialising in comfort in front of a large flat-screen TV, while a dining table for up to eight guests is served by a fully-fitted, western-style kitchen and breakfast bar.
Indoor and outdoor living space merges with a pool deck furnished with sun loungers and an alfresco dining table for four. The 15-metre beachfront swimming pool stretches across the entire width of the villa, with an open sala at one end for relaxing massages to the soothing sound of the breeze and waves breaking on the sea shore.
Villa Soong’s three bedrooms are cool and contemporary in design, with light and dark wood, or polished terrazzo surfaces. Ensuite bathrooms in the two guest suites are finished in grey terrazzo and fitted with vanities and walk-in rain-showers, while the bathroom in the master suite also features a freestanding terrazzo tub. A sonos sound-system, designer furniture and Shanghai Tang bathroom amenities all contribute to this five-star holiday experience.
A villa manager, cook and team of friendly staff are on hand to help ease guests into total relaxation at this peaceful tropical retreat. They will prepare and serve meals and can organise spa treatments, yoga instructors, boating and island tours. They’ll even set up a picnic or candlelit dinner on the beach should it take your fancy.
Villa Soong is ideal for families and friends looking for a stylish tropical beachfront holiday away from the crowds. If a little more space is required, the villa can be rented in conjunction with three-bedroom Villa Neung next door.
