Baan Nicolina in Surin
Baan Nicolina is situated on one of the most exclusive stretches of coastline in Phuket, and during the yacht-racing season, the bay is home to some of the worlds most impressive sailing boats. At dusk, the sunsets are simply breathtaking.
The villa-with-a-view is a dream home. The design and the interiors create the perfect place to entertain and impress friends, family and business clients. A total of four spacious bedrooms, plus a children's playroom which can be used as a fifth bedroom if absolutely necessary with pull out sofa bed, means the villa can comfortably sleep as many as 10 adults.
As you enter through the polished timber entrance doors, you are welcomed by a stature of Buddha. The entertainment area is straight ahead, with an outdoor covered dining area off to the side, perfect for hosting a dinner party for as many as 12 people with a stylish glass-topped table. The main sala room comes complete with Bose surround sound, cable TV and wi-fi computer connections, and Porsche-designed lighting which can be adjusted to suit any mood. The main entertainment area converts into a comfortable home cinema with a giant screen which glides down from the ceiling at the touch of a button. The whole villa oozes class with lashings of charm and privacy.
A fully equipped Western kitchen and an outdoor, undercover Thai kitchen are simply aching for someone to cook up a royal feast. The 20-metre infinity lap pool allows you to swim in the sunshine and still enjoy the magnificent view over Surin Bay. A flight of polished timber stairs leads up to the spacious master bedroom which boasts a double walk-in wardrobe with enough shelves and hanging space to house even the largest clothes collection. And for those who like to watch a bit of TV before nodding off at night, a giant screen rises almost magically from a console at the foot of the king-sized bed a the touch of a button. There is a magnificent viewing deck outside the bedroom, complete with two double daybeds. A study area off to one side also looks out over Surin Bay. The main guest room is almost as luxurious as the master suite. Both have luxury ensuite bathrooms with rain showers, twin basins, and translucent walls and doors.
The villa which which is part of a gated community was designed by renowned Singapore-based designer Ernesto Bedmar, and his signature masses of greenery and water features, including one directly outside the entertainment area on the grassy deck, are evident everywhere. The architecture throughout is both strikingly contemporary and classically timeless. A flight of stairs leads down to the children's playroom(can be used as 5th bedroom and suitable for small children or nanny only) and the other two guest bedrooms on the lower level. Down here, the kids can make as much noise as they want without disturbing the adults upstairs. Two of the three downstairs rooms has its own ensuite and all look out onto a tropical garden area. A covered deck makes this the perfect place for the kids to play, either indoors or outside in the fresh air.
The gated community is secure, with a giant entrance gate which is opened to visitors by the gate guard, only after he checks their bona fides. A track just outside the estate's main entrance leads down to the picturesque Laemsingh Beach, famed for its rustic seafood restaurants and perfect for a relaxing lunch in the sun. And because no more land can be developed in the immediate vicinity, the villa's unique charm and seclusion will never be compromised by noisy or intrusive construction. The villas are wonderfully positioned, and are only minutes from Amanpuri, less than 10 minutes from Laguna and only 25 minutes from the airport, Patong or Phuket Town. There is also a professional management and security team in place and a full-time estate manager who is on call night and day.
