Villa ZEST, as its name implies, promises an experience that will leave you passionate about this beautiful tropical island of Koh Samui.
Set high in the green carpeted hills of the island's north-west or ‘sunset' coast, just above the main town of Nathon and 45 minutes' drive from the international airport, this prestigious holiday home offers a 180-degree view of the entire west coast and the offshore islands of Ang Thong National Marine Park and the Five Islands group.
Villa Zest is part of the exclusive Lime Samui villa development created by celebrated international design firm GFAB Architects. Set in a private 12.5-acre estate at a high elevation, three outstanding contemporary-designed villas are surrounded by natural rainforest and coconut-palm clad slopes that rise sharply above the coast.
This expansive property extends over three separate levels, offering an impressive choice of private and communal areas for you to relax and enjoy this stunning location. Five spacious ensuite bedrooms, all with sea and mountain views, a 18-metre infinity-edged pool with shaded living and dining sala, a study with its own private pool terrace, fully equipped gym and games room provide a self-contained sanctuary for you and your guests.
The focal point of the villa is the wide, dazzling white pool terrace arranged with stylish sun loungers and day-beds strategically placed to capture the cool breezes that blow from the sea. Here indoor and outdoor living and dining merge in a seamless sense of space and freedom.
In a nod to the villa's architectural style, the Great Room looks like a film-set with its huge 60's-style sunken sofa and wall-mounted flat-screen TV. A dining table can be set for up to 10 guests and a fully-fitted designer show-kitchen with breakfast bar is the place to start the day and for casual dining and socializing. At one end of the pool terrace a covered sala with built-in barbecue is the place for al fresco dining overlooking the view or one of the island's famous blazing orange sunsets.
All bedrooms are spacious and feature a cool contemporary look with king or queen-size beds, flat-screen TVs, generous wardrobe space and personal safes. Some have free-standing bathtubs, and all have indoor outdoor rain showers.
The villa's welcoming and attentive staff are there to make your stay as comfortable and memorable as possible. Whether you decide to spend your time enjoying this extraordinary villa or decide to explore some of the island's many attractions, from waterfalls and its magical hinterland, to nightlife and boat trips to the outlying islands that dot the villa's amazing views.
Villa Zest is the perfect holiday retreat for families and groups of friends looking to spend quality time together away from it all. But if you do want to feel the sand between your toes, some of the island's most beautiful and unspoiled beaches are just a 15 minute drive to the coast, likewise the nearby town of Nathon, and the main tourist centres of Bophut and Fisherman's Village or Chaweng are a 30-45 minute drive away.
However, the likelihood is that you will just want to stay put and delight in the peace and quiet of this idyllic private retreat, and a rare opportunity to relax and revitalize surrounded by the best that nature has to offer.
