- Floor Level
Grand luxury villa nestling on a private and secured hillside on the west coast of Phuket, an elegant style in a flourish of traditional Thai roofs. From a commanding height of 80 meters, Villa Yang Som gives you the breath taking panorama of the Andaman Sea to the west, the towering 'Gothic' dome-like mountains of Phang Nga to the north and the lush green valley that reaches out toward them. The play of terraces and salas throughout the three levels of the Villa ensures that they capture the breeze from the ocean in all seasons, as guests lie back and watch the distant horizon just beyond the crystal clear water of the eighteen meter Infinity pool.
From the Villa, the famous Surin Beach with its cool beach clubs and gourmet restaurants are just two minutes by car. Phuket International Airport it is just twenty minutes away. To the shopping and bustling night life of Patong, it's half an hour's ride on a lush and leisurely coast-hugging scenic route.
The main living areas of Villa Yang Som are spread out on three levels. It has five spacious ocean-view bed rooms, each with its own study or changing room, and private balcony over-looking Surin and Bang Tau Bay; large and airy living room and formal dining room abutting a sun deck by the Infinity pool; a fully fitted kitchen that opens onto a large informal lounge that steps out onto yet another deck all on its own; while the pool sala – rising just above the water between two sun decks – is just the place to enjoy an evening cocktail while you contemplate the sun as it sets majestically over the 'emerald' sea under an evening sky lit up in a blaze of a myriad colors.
At the top of the Villa you will find yet one more sala – between two bed room suites – called the ‘Half Moon Sala,’ with panoramic view amid rich greenery and privacy that you sought for in complete solitude.
All rooms are light and airy, their large windows and doors are finished to a high perfection: each is in itself a fitting picture frame giving depth and definition to the great panorama that plays out in front of you every moment from east to west, and back again!
Here and everywhere the sense of openness is immediate and personal: the tropical sky above and the broad landscape below merging constantly with one's own inner space. Here is freedom and pure bliss.
Welcome to Villa Yang Som!
From Phuket International Airport the villa is only a 20 minutes' ride on the highway, and a country road past a couple of villages teeming with activities, and open fields. The villa is just two minutes from Surin beach on a hill overlooking the Amanpuri headland, which separates Surin Bay from the Bay of Bang Tao to the north. Situated on Phuket’s west coast, this luxury enclave of Surin is famous for its beautiful beaches, designer stores and multi-million dollar villas, this is truly the ‘St Tropez’ of Thailand, or you may say the Knightsbridge of Phuket.
A wealth of activities awaits all visitors, be you a shopper, swimmer, outdoor enthusiast or a culinary connoisseur. Should any strenuous activity not be on your to-do list, there is always a massage bed and a sun lounger awaiting your arrival.
Bang Tao beach is six kilometers long and leans against the coastal plains of Cherngtalay and Laguna, home to some of the most sought after neighborhoods and luxury resorts like the Banyan Tree Resort and Golf Club, the Amanpuri, Twin Palms, the Chedi, Angsana and Dusit Laguna….. all within a short drive from the Villa.
From the Villa to the shopping and bustling nightlife of Patong it's a leisurely half-hour journey on a meandering, coast-hugging, scenic route.
