Ornate Thai architecture above Surin Beach
12 guests · 5 bedrooms · 5 bathrooms
Meaning ‘villa of love and sunshine’ exquisite Rak Tawan provides an abundance of both. Striking oriental architecture lends a charming traditional nature to this hillside villa, while modern touches accentuate the luxurious setting. From the upper terrace, marvel at spectacular sunsets, the enchanting sky mirrored in the resting ocean. Relax, shop or dine in style at nearby Surin beach.
The topaz infinity pool juts proudly over the abundant hillside below, extending towards the dazzling horizon. Float weightlessly above Surin bay, or soak up the tropical sun from the comfort of a poolside lounger. Stroll over to the cocktail bar for a fruity refreshment, and recline with your drink in the shade of the opulent outdoor lounge. Delightful twin massage pergolas reside on either end of the pool, where you can request divine spa treatments while overlooking the sparkling sea.
A tremendously well-equipped gym offers a mix of strength and cardio machines. Inspirational views of clear blue skies and lush green foliage set a magnificent backdrop to your workout.
An eclectic mix of artwork adorns the villa’s walls. From ancient portraits to political statement pieces and pop culture references, you will have fun unravelling the story behind each piece. Simple, comfortable furniture has been thoughtfully chosen to balance with the traditional basis of Rak Tawan’s design. Look forward to mindful mornings on Buddha’s balcony, accessed through a spiritual corridor, lined with vibrant bird of paradise flora. As the sun sinks towards the horizon, retire to the upper lounge – a restful room with broad vistas of Surin bay. A sleek modern kitchen hosts a welcoming breakfast bar and casual dining table. Here your private chef will prepare sensational gourmet meals, a real treat for the taste buds.
Continuing the modern-traditional fusion of style, silky cushions and rich, polished wood are married with modern art and sumptuous king sized beds in the villa’s five bedrooms. Welcome each glorious day from the bedrooms’ wrap around balcony, which doubles as a magnificent view point. Luxurious en-suite bathrooms ensure a totally relaxing bathing experience. Roomy showers are forgiving when you fling your arms wide, mid-song. ‘His and hers’ sinks and inviting deep bathtubs complete the indulgent feel of these rooms.
Sophisticated Surin beach is a pleasant five-minute stroll from the villa. Fine white sands and crystal clear waters create a heavenly spot to relax with a book, or take a refreshing dip. Surrounding the beach you will find exclusive wine bars and high-end restaurants serving up exciting, exotic flavours. Phuket airport is a short 15km drive.
