Angthong Villa would not look out of place in an interior design magazine; the villa features pretty Oriental elements, breezy open plan living pavilions and delightful outdoor spaces. A pool hugs close to the shores, providing guests with panoramic views of the ocean as they take a refreshing dip. When you’ve finally decided to step out of the pool, dry off against the beach towel and relax against the loungers with an icy drink in hand. If you feel like catching a quick snooze, a swinging hammock in the garden provides the perfect spot.

A spacious infinity pool, swim-up bar, panoramic ocean views, direct access to the beach, well-manicured garden – this villa’s got ’em all. The main swimming pool offers plenty of space for the entire clan to make a splash, but if you’re one of those who like having a pool all to yourself (so do we), there’s a second pool located to the side of the villa. You’ll have to plan your days well here, for the villa offers much to do. Should your free time be spent catching a movie marathon in the media room, enjoying cocktails by the bar, lounging outdoors by the poolside or catching a snooze in the plush bedroom?
