Flanked by its two sister properties, Villa Sangsuri 2 is one of three stunning villas that make up the impressive Estate on Koh Samui.
The capacious 7-bedroom villa is designed as a series of enchanting, stand-alone living and sleeping pavilions set over four levels and spread through beautiful landscaped grounds overlooking a quiet stretch of beach just a couple of kilometres north of the island’s main tourist centre, Chaweng.
The villa strikes a perfect balance between modern, ultra-stylish architectural designs and natural elegance, drawing on the striking beauty of the location with open-sided, thatched roof dining and lounge pavilions, glass walled bedrooms and slatted, sliding wooden shutter panels surrounding the dining pavillion and master suite. These deft touches ensure guests are truly immersed in the richness of the lush, tropical setting while at the same time cushioned in sophisticated modern luxury.
The villa’s lower level, covered poolside lounge is the perfect space to wile away the day immersed in a good book with your favorite tunes piped through villa’s the built-in speakers, or to recline on a daybed in front of a movie on the pull-down cinema screen. More active souls will love the villa’s two inviting ocean view swimming pools, while a huge beachside jacuzzi makes regular dips irresistible.
Mealtimes are also a memorable private pleasure, with a choice of al fresco dining spaces in which to enjoy delicious home cooked meals prepared by the villa’s in-house chef. Guests wanting to work off all the good food can make use of the estate’s on-site gym, fitted with top-end machines. Alternatively, a stroll or jog down the beach is rewarded with a close-up view of the nearby uninhabited offshore island of Koh Matlang.
An all but hidden remote controlled gate opens onto a private gravel driveway that serves both Villa Sangsuri 2 and Villa Sangsuri 3, with space for several cars to park and an designated area for the night security guard. The drive also leads to the villa’s only multi-storey storey pavilion, which houses staff quarters upstairs and a spacious ground floor gym equipped with Life Fitness® equipment for cardio and muscle work.
A double guest bedroom occupies the ground floor of the same building and opens onto its own private, ocean view terrace with an on-suite bathroom to the rear. Stairs inside the bedroom connect to a basement level, which houses a spacious twin bedroom ideal for older children with its own walk-in wardrobe and ensuite shower.
From the upper-level bedrooms, steps made of balinese stone descend around an old tree to the first of two expansive lawned and planted areas, backed by an attractive, planted wall. Two more bedroom suites occupy their own standalone bungalows at the rear of the spacious grounds. Bedroom 3 features two walk-in wardrobes and internal doors that slide open onto a planted, tropical bathroom. Bedroom 4 boasts a similar layout to Bedroom 3, but with the ensuite bathroom positioned to the rear of the bungalow. Both are beautifully furnished and decorated in subtle earth tones.
Also on the same level, paths cross water features in the lawned garden and connect to the kitchen, lounge and dining spaces, all of which occupy their own separate thatched roof pavilions. The lounge is furnished with a long cushioned sofa and day bed, the kitchen features a central island breakfast bar and both areas protected from the elements with automated blinds. The ocean views dining pavilion seats 8 to10 guests and is surrounded on three sides by slatted wooded shutters that rotate to draw in the soothing ocean views.
Also on this level, an infinity edged plunge pool fronts the master bedroom pavilion, the latter sliding open on three sides to draw in the stunning views. The suite includes a generously sized double bedroom with additional oversized sofa, antique Balinese wooden carvings and striking original art, as well as ample built-in storage in a walk-in wardrobe area and a spacious ensuite bathroom. The master suite opens onto a private terrace to the rear, featuring a huge outdoor bathtub and a secluded private sun terrace with two sunbeds overlooking the beach.
Internal stairs lead directly down from inside the master suite to a sizeable day lounge area on the villa’s lower level, also reached via steps next to the dining pavilion and positioned next to the villa’s second, larger swimming pool (21 metres). The comfortable covered lounge area is furnished with a sofa and daybed poised in front of a pull-down projector screen for relaxed movie nights. There’s a guest bathroom, a second kitchen and barbecue area in this part of the villa, that latter serving a 10-seater outdoor dining table on a terrace right next to the beach. The terrace extends along the beachfront and hosts a comfortable daybed with steps down into a huge beachside jacuzzi pool.
Bedroom 2 also occupies the villa’s beachside terrace level and sits at the far end of the poolside garden. The room boasts sea views right from the bed and also offers guests a dual walk-in wardrobe and a bathroom its own with private garden.
Sangsuri Villa 2 connects directly with Sangsuri Villa 3, which means groups have the option to rent the two villas as one expansive 11 bedroom property.
Staying at Sangsuri Villa 2
The unique layout and designs at Sangsuri Villa 2 effortlessly bring together nature and contemporary luxury, allowing guests to spend the majority of their time outdoors enjoying the stunning vistas and soothing tropical surroundings, but also with every indulgence, comfort and convenience at their fingertips.

The beachside day lounge and swimming pool offer everything you could possibly need to pass lazy days enjoying island life to the full. It’s perfectly possible to spend most of your time in this part of the villa; swimming and sunbathing during the day, then returning for evening cocktails, followed by a barbecue, and then relaxing in the lounge with a movie on the pull-down projector screen. All this with the gentle sound of the lapping waves in the background.
The abundance of trees and flowers really adds to the pleasure of the stay, as do the many artifacts and collectibles placed throughout the villa, which not only create a strong sense of location, but also cleverly bring a homely ambiance to the residence despite its open-plan layouts and considerable size.
The spacious, multi-level design of the villa also means it is easy for guests to balance communal and private holiday time. The private facilities and onsite services are second to none, the fact that the villas on the Sangsuri estate offer direct access to a quiet beach is a rare luxury in itself.
