Want to take a skinny dip, or make a splash just to cool down from the heat? There’re few places better than your private infinity pool to do so. Need some tips? Here’s where to find some of the best pools on the island:
- Villa Soong, Bang Po
Cool and contemporary, three bedroom Villa Soong hugs close to the shores of Laem Noi, offering a cosy beachfront vacation home perfect for small families and groups of travellers. The tastefully designed ineriors are a feast for the eyes; sleek white furnishings adorn the spacious rooms, blending well with a choice selection of wooden fixtures and modern ornaments. You’ll find eye-catching elements, like pops of turquoise and a stone feature wall amidst the neutral-hued decor. There’s certainly no need for elaborate decorations in this seafront home – not when floor-to-ceiling glass doors flank the sides of the rooms, overlooking the gorgeous pool deck and tropical coasts…
- Villa Alpha, Choeng Mon
Villa Alpha perches atop a prime hilltop location, providing guests with stunning views of the island’s coastline and dense tropical greenery. There’s plenty of snug spots in the villa perfect for relaxation – like the homely living area, plush media room or outdoor terrace – but the best spot for taking in the views is without a doubt, the breezy pool deck. Don your sunglasses, grab an iced drink and lay back against the pillowy seat of the sun loungers; if the heat of the tropics gets overwhelming, cool down with a dip in the refreshing waters of the infinity pool.
- Villa Jaliza, Chaweng
Sleek, modern, and chic, Villa Jaliza will appeal to trendy vacation makers on the lookout for a contemporary home during their holidays in Samui. White walls and furniture give the villa a sophisticated and polished look, while artworks and brightly-coloured fixtures add a splash of liveliness indoors. Chill out indoors during the hot and sunny afternoons, but when temperatures dip during the evenings, make your way out to relax by the infinity pool and enjoy the cooling breezes. Don’t forget to call for ice cold beers and snacks.
- Villa Saam Sip, Choeng Mon
When you conjure up images of your dream holiday home, chances are that it will look just like Villa Saam Sip. A series of commodious living spaces, furnished with contemporary flair, fill up the luxurious home. The expansive windows and open plan concept creates a sense of spaciousness, drawing the eyes out to gaze upon the stunning coastal scenery surrounding the villa. The comfy couches are a great spot to settle down in to enjoy the views, but why not venture out for a rejuvenating dip in the pool?
- Baan Benjamart, Bo Phut
Love the sun, sand and sea? You won’t go wrong with making Baan Benjamart your home for the holidays. Set along the golden shores of Bo Phut, the oceanfront home offers fine vistas of the azure seas, and invites gusts of salty sea breezes into the living spaces. Start your day with a tasty meal by the breakfast bar, before making your way to the beachfront gazebo to while your hours away. Arm yourself with plenty of iced drinks, but if you find the tropical heat overwhelming, get a cool respite by making a splash in the glistening waters of the pool.
