An unforgettable escape, the luxury Siam Villa was designed by Thai designer Eggarat Wongcharit, at the Iniala Beach House resort in Phuket, Thailand. Overlooking the Andaman Sea, the five-acre property comprises three villas (each with three suites), and one spectacular penthouse suite.
The $22,750 starting rate for a sybaritic one-week stay in a three-suite villa—with plenty of room for three couples or a family—offers much in return, not least your own private spa and a full staff that includes a driver, a butler, and a chef.
Description from the architects: The residence is a masterpiece of design fusing traditional Thai architecture with organic, contemporary forms. World-renowned designers of the villas include The Campana Brothers of Brazil, A-cero from Spain, Joseph Walsh of Ireland, Mark Brazier-Jones of New Zealand, Graham Lamb from Britain and Thailand’s Eggarat Wongcharit. Every bedroom and living space is completely different. The Beach House has 10 bedrooms spread over 3 individual villas and a spectacular Penthouse. Every bedroom and living space is startlingly different; a unique expression from the masters of contemporary design from all around the world.
Villa Siam is designed by Eggarat Wongcharit and is a maximalist fantasy inspired by Thai culture and Buddhism; includes beds and sofas suspended from the ceiling by wicker bamboo. The villa’s own spa is located within an ancient golden Thai bell, with Buddhist teachings translated into English inscribed in the walls. Eggarat Wongcharit’s extraordinary creations use a modern take on traditional Thai craftsmen’s techniques. Intricate wickerwork and glass mosaics grace his eclectic and daring rooms of the villa, and his work is unique and original.
Common areas: inspired by nearby Phang Nga Bay, all of the furniture is Thai as well as the artwork, and a collage of small pictures of Buddha are “protected” by being wrapped in a crochet hanging on the wall. The room pays a tribute to the sacred Buddha with three large illuminated images on the wall behind hanging white sofas covered with mother of pearl. A wrapped pagoda with traditional Thai weaving expanding over it onto the ceiling ties the room’s contemporary lines and Thai roots seamlessly together, and the weaving incorporates an elaborate dream catcher facing down upon guests as they walk in. A dining table seats up to six, with the backdrop of eclectic and playful waving cats.
Beyond the living room is perhaps the most breathtaking part of Villa Siam – The Spa. A golden dome inscribed with Buddhist teachings translated into English, and hand cut mirrors in the shower and toilet areas are placed in a traditional Thai technique commonly used in the building of temples. This Spa also has a traditional Thai steam room and is inspired by a temple in the mountains of northern Thailand.
Lotus Suite: Inspired by the symbolism of the Lotus flower
This mystical suite is aptly named for the lotus pads splashed on the ceiling over the bed, very Thai in style and with much symbolism. In Buddhist teachings, whatever is on top of water is said to be elevated. The lily pads over the bed are inverted so that while the guest sleeps, their spirit is elevated in their dreams. Another mother of pearl suspended sofa accompanies the bed. In the bathroom, a Thai graphic designer was commissioned to create a lotus fish on a large piece of resin.
The complementary Siamese Suites (two bedrooms) are absolute beachfront and serve as each other’s ying to yang. The symmetry of the rooms are opposite using white and natural wood, and the suites have cocoon beds with the traditional Thai weaving technique used with bamboo, giving the rooms a fresh scent. Each room also has outdoor jungle showers, the walls covered with vibrant green plant simulations.

The Bella Vita Villa is a contemporary oceanfront retreat integrating indoor / outdoor living, designed by Prototype Design Lab, located in the Turks and Caicos Islands. The villa explores lightness, filtering natural breezes, layers of transparency and integrating indoor / outdoor spaces within dynamic patterns of light and shadow, providing a simple frame within which a contemporary sustainable lifestyle can unfold.
Description from the architects: The beachfront facade is almost entirely sliding glass openings to maximize on the view, natural light andfresh breeze of the ocean. The villa is wrapped on the top and bottom by solid concrete bands which extend along the sides of the house to become the solid entrance facade.
The entrance evokes a fortress-like grandeur, into which a masterfully crafted, poured-in place concrete frame successively recedes toward an door of a more intimate human scale. This drama is counterbalanced by the old-world beauty of an original, hand-carved wood door, reclaimed and imported from India. Lighting helps nighttime visitors appreciate the full effect of the majestic doorway, with its receding concrete panels.
The layering continues in the foyer with a custom lace patterned grand staircase cantilevered off of a board-form concrete wall.The connection between the expansive deck, LED-lit negative-edge pool, and living spaces is dynamicand direct.
At the heart of the house, an expansive great room is an entertainer’s dream, featuring 30-foot ceilings, a large chef’s kitchen and a twosided indoor-outdoor fireplace above which sunlight is filtered through the custom laser-cut chimney pattern. The secluded white beach is a focal point with which almost every room in the villa enjoys a connection.
Let there be lightness: sunlight streams through the open beachside facade, filtering through the custom cut-steel fireplace to create patterned shadows within. By night, its illuminated column serves as a beacon when viewed form the beach.
The grand staircase lives up to its name. The drama is created using laser-cut steel panels designed by the architect, fabricated in Toronto, and then shipped to the island along with reclaimed heavy-timber beams for the stairs.
The villa’s bathrooms incorporate floating fixtures of glass and chrome played against black Brazilian slate walls and floors.
Lower-level beachfront bedrooms have the added benefit of direct access to the deck and pool areas.
