Within the exclusive award-winning Cape Yamu Estate, the stunningly designed villa occupies a prime slice of absolute waterfront land on the northeast coast of Phuket on what is considered one of the island's most unspoilt peninsulas.
This luxurious, four/five-bedroom, five bathrooms, three powder room multi-level masterpiece is the product of world-renowned architectural design team, Philippe Starck and Jean-Michel Gathy.
The villa enjoys unparalleled views of Phang Nga Bay, a naturally preserved region with its rolling emerald hills blanketed by lush tropical landscape, tall coconut groves and fast access from nearby marinas to beautiful islands with pristine white sand beaches and dramatic limestone cliffs.
The villa is just 20 minutes from Phuket International Airport, and near to four full-service marinas and two boating piers. It is nestled in an exclusive gated community and owners enjoy access to the nearby award-winning five-star COMO Point Yamu Resort, with its state-of-the-art sports and wellness facilities and superb dining options. For nature lovers, the Khao Phra Thaeo National Park with Gibbon Rehabilitation Centre and eye-catching Bang Pae waterfall are within close reach, while the beautiful beaches of BangTao and the bustling streets of Patong and Phuket Town are a mere 30-minute drive away.
This palatial haven tastefully blends contemporary Thai design with modern grandeur and features spacious open-plan indoor and outdoor living areas, opulent interiors, verandas with sweeping sea views, comfortable ensuite bedrooms, and warm lighting to enhance serenity. The tiered verandas incorporate a reflective pond above a stylish 30-metre infinity lap pool with a swim-up bar and an adjacent alfresco dining area. The villa is brought to life each day with spectacular sunrises over the jagged, majestic cliffs in Phang Nga Bay, and the sunset can be enjoyed from the private lawns and the beach.
On arrival, enjoy the aromatic frangipani tree-lined lawns sweeping down to the grand entry sala and reflecting pool beside a large, covered carport with ample parking for up to 4 cars. The grand vaulted entrance with massive double doors opens to an immense living and dining pavilion that spills out onto a sea view, upper-level terrace overlooking the pool, lawn, and beach. At the centre of the villa is a pavilion of cathedral-like dimensions, where a vaulted wooden teak ceiling supported by spectacular white columns towers over terrazzo and rich teak floors.
It is furnished with a sleek polished concrete dining table and a generous array of plush sofas and armchairs with soft area rugs. The space is stylishly accented with a soothing mix of hand-crafted and bronze Buddha sculptures and vibrant original artwork from northern Thailand that balances with the contemporary furnishings. The villa is fully furnished with artwork, kitchen appliances and dining ware, bedroom linen, sports and gym equipment, paddleboards, and kayaks.
Adjoining the pavilion on the right is the upper guest suite with pond and terrace access. Connected on the left is a fully equipped Western-style guest diner that boasts a bar counter and stools, a wine fridge, kitchen/bar appliances, a 50-inch wall-mounted screen with Apple and Pulse TV, and a chic dining table with white leather seating.
This room opens onto the upper pond terrace with spectacular views of the bay. Adjacent is an additional fully equipped chef/maid’s kitchen, which includes a granite-top island, also with bar seating. This further leads to the villa manager's office, maid’s patio, bedrooms, a bathroom, storage, and laundry.
The outdoor living spaces at the villa include a furnished upper-level sun terrace with a reflective pond and unobstructed sea views and, immediately below, a part-shaded pool deck with sofa seating, sun loungers, a large double daybed, and outdoor gym equipment and games.
The 30-metre infinity lap pool features a shallow shelf for lounging/children as well as a swim-up bar and an integrated dining sala. Stretching beyond the pool is an immense flat, flexible, and usable lawn with direct beach-step access to a peaceful beach for walks, boating, and water sports.
On the lower level is a very flexible arrangement currently presented as a primary suite, two neighboring guest suites, and a media room/children’s bedroom. These lower-floor rooms enjoy direct access to the pool terrace and its alfresco dining and lounging areas.
Four generously sized ensuite bedrooms are air-conditioned with ceiling fans and come with plush mattresses, crisp white linens, built-in wardrobes, soft-cushioned lounge seating, and floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors that all open onto a shared veranda with sea views. The primary and guest suites have outdoor patios with a shower and utility supply available to install a hot tub/jacuzzi.
The rooms are decorated with original artwork and come equipped with a Bluetooth speaker and charging station. Each double bed has an integrated trundle bed. Ensuites feature twin sinks, rain showers, large mirrors, and a private toilet/room, as well as both sheer and black-out curtains.
