Impressive Villa Mia lies beachfront on the island of Koh Samui. It is the only villa on Chaweng Beach. The villa’s architecture follows the Balinese format of having numerous pavilions positioned to form a central courtyard enclosing the swimming pool and directing the focus out to the beach and the ocean. The entrance to the villa features an antique metal gong set into a glass circle, giving it the appearance of floating in the center of the imposing white wooden door. The entrance pavilion faces the ocean, and on the right of the entrance is a large garage area. To the left is a fitness room and the staff quarters.
One pavilion is home to the open-plan kitchen, dining area and living area. This large space is extremely well designed with the kitchen area defined by a long floating island feature, which has a built-in wine cooler and subtle black hobs. Beyond the kitchen is a doorway leading out to a covered Thai-style kitchen.
The two pavilions on either side of the central swimming pool make up the villa’s living and sleeping areas. The long swimming pool is cleverly incorporated into the living areas and forms an integral part of this villa experience. The pool extends into the pathways with the use of stepping stones and, at the beach end, stepping stones on either side lead down into a covered sala area complete with comfortable seating. From here you can relax with the pool on either side and the ocean directly ahead.
The first bedroom, which looks out onto the pool, has a central walkway leading into the stunning en-suite bathroom with doors opening to a private outdoor courtyard full of tropical plants, stone sculptures and wooden decking surrounding an oversized terrazzo bathtub. This bedroom has a connecting door leading to the second bedroom. In this room, the bed sits against a floating wall under a vaulted ceiling. Behind the floating wall is the en-suite bathroom. The other two bedrooms mirror the first two bedrooms in the opposite pavilion. They are connected as well; one has an outdoor shower whilst the other has an outdoor courtyard with sunken terrazzo bathtub. The master bedroom is in a separate pavilion and opens onto the garden.
