The spectacular 7-bedroomed Villa Koh Koon plus two kid’s rooms, sleeping 8 sprawls over a massive seven rai (12,000SQ.M) of hillside overlooking Chaweng Bay, and could easily be mistaken for a Mediterranean countryside retreat. Here, East meets the Med with an eclectic mix of Asian and European styles, which blend perfectly to create a harmonious holiday villa, ideal for social gatherings, as well as relaxation.
The terrain has been carefully considered in the planning and layout of Villa Koh Koon, with the rock
clad main building and bedroom pavilions blending in to the natural surroundings. Giant boulders
have been retained as garden features, and rockeries and grassland gardens have been incorporated
around them. The main building is linked to four bedroom pavilions by way of stone pathways amid
rolling lawns. With rock and crete-stone walls, terracotta roof tiles, wrought iron fittings and aged
wood shutters, the buildings have a distinctly farmhouse French feel yet the addition of swaying
coconut palms rather than olive trees, reminds you that you are, in fact, on a tropical island.
The kitchen comes complete with Smeg appliances and plenty of space for the chef to prepare his
delicious fare. The villa’s chef has many years of experience in upmarket establishments both in
Thailand and abroad, so there’s little need to leave the villa. Whether it’s breakfast on the courtyard,
lunch in the pool dining sala, dinner indoors, or afternoon crepes and waffles on the pool deck, you’ll
be well taken care of. For the health conscious, a juicer means you can take advantage of the island’s
fresh produce and enjoy a healthy juice diet.
Leading off to the front of the living and dining room is a travertine-clad terrace, complete with
seating and soft-flowing white curtains gently waving in the breeze. Another courtyard leads off
from the kitchen, and makes the ideal spot for alfresco breakfasts, served from the buffet counter in
the kitchen. Here you’ll find a built-in barbecue too yet another way to take advantage of the chef’s
From the living room, wooden stairs lead up to the mezzanine floor (with floorboards made from
reclaimed teak wood) where you’ll find the library with business centre if you simply must catch up
on some work while away. Features include a PC desktop and an all in one scanner/copy/printer
machine, Kelim carpet, bespoke couches, and walls of books to while-away your time. Guests at Villa
Koh Koon can enjoy their music independently or together in the living room, terrace and courtyard of
the main house and the same thing can be done at the pool area bar, pool deck and sala.
The master suite leads off from the library, and offers ocean views from the bed as well as the private terrace,
complete with an outdoor shower. The en-suite bathroom boasts his-and-hers marble vanities, as well as a
double rain shower. Below the main living pavilion lies a multi-purpose room, which can be used as a TVlounge
which includes a PlayStation 4 and a DVD player as well as movies accessible via the Villa Koh Koon
network or hard disk, a massage room, or even an additional sleeping area, should the eight bedrooms not be
enough for your party. The first kid’s bedroom sleeping 4 is also located on the lower level.
Villa Koh Koon’s remaining six bedrooms are housed in four pavilions throughout the property. The mountain
view villa holds two bedrooms one with king-size bed, and the other with twin beds (not inter-leading). Each
has its own en-suite bathroom, complete with double vanities and rain showers, as well as a terrace with
seating. Kika Room with a king-size bed and en-suite bathroom is in a pavilion of its own, and the sea view
villa, holds two inter-leading rooms, one with king-size bed, and the other with twin beds, ideal for younger
children that need to be close to parents. A covered terrace with built-in seating offers some privacy away
from the main house. To the right of the swimming pool lies Alex Villa, with two bedrooms upstairs holds a
king-size bed, and downstairs, a large room which is the second kids room consisting of four single beds,
making this an ideal room for older children sharing. All bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms, and are furnished
with crisp, white linen, curtains as well as wooden shutters, air-conditioning and interesting bedside lighting.
Polished concrete floors are cool underfoot, and Crete-stone walls add to the rustic Mediterranean feel. The
calming, simply furnished bedrooms with their private terraces and seating areas, offer places of solitude to
unwind away from the communal areas.
Situated below the main house, taking centre stage in the garden, and boasting exceptional sea views, the
expansive infinity pool is sunken into a wooden deck, and is flanked with plenty of sun-loungers and deck
chairs. To one side lies a pool bar, along with a separate dining sala, and to other side, a covered pool lounge
offers shaded seating to enjoy calm resting or movie
watching with video projector and 3m widescreen. The
pool terrace, with its many seating areas, makes an ideal
place to gather in the day as a group.
Villa Koh Koon’s vast lawns are great for children to
run, play and be children, and in the garden below the
pool, guests can enjoy a friendly game of table tennis
or petanque boules court, or practice their golfing
techniques on the putting green. Those searching for
further fitness activities will just love the beautifully
Higher up in the garden, just below the main building, sits
a large function deck, built around a majestic tree. This
is the perfect spot to do sun salutations while practicing
yoga at sunrise, or to host an intimate wedding ceremony.

amenities and service are 5-star. The professional villa
manageress and her staff will take care of your every
whim, and the in-house concierge service can arrange
any excursion should you manage to pull yourself away
