Villa Name: Ban Mekkala
Ban Mekkala is a new home which has been designed to accentuate comfortable and convenient living in a tropical environment. An imposing entrance opens to reveal a truly contemporary home. The stunning location and spacious design combines with luxury, modern technology and high quality furnishings to create a hideaway for those seeking a relaxing retreat, or fun getaway.
Upon entering the villa compound, you are enticed into the residence over a peaceful stepped pond filled with Koi fish and the stunning view through the property to the glistening ocean in the distance. The main entrance to the villa leads directly into the cavernous interior of the combined living, dining and kitchen areas. This grand room situated on the second level of the main house creates a laid-back feel through the use of space, open-plan design and the stunning view that can be enjoyed from all angles through full length windows which run across the expanse of the building.
Contained within this area is the enormous gourmet kitchen, a twelve seat dining table, and the living/entertainment area furnished with modern Thai decor and a state-of-the-art audio/visual system equipped with plasma TV and surround sound technology which is linked to every part of the house (inside and out) so your favourite tunes can be enjoyed from wherever you are!
You leave this area through a large covered balcony and move down to the ground level via a staircase overlooking a waterfall feature that flows into an internal courtyard below. This level contains the six bedrooms consisting of three different styles (two bedrooms per design). All bedrooms feature en-suite bathrooms with large walk-in showers and bath tubs, and there’s a TV/DVD player with individual satellite TV unit too. The ground floor of the main building houses bedrooms five & six and also a steam room. Moving down the established garden there are four more individual bedroom pavilions. Bedrooms three and four are the first two on either side of the central lawn and these rooms benefit from an additional outdoor shower in their own private courtyards.
Bedrooms one and two are the Master Bedrooms and the largest of all with the added their own personal surround sound stereos that can be isolated from the system in the main house.
At this far end of the property you’ll find the villa’s large swimming pool with incredible sunken sun benches. There’s an outdoor dining pavilion as well as a barbecue and kitchen for the ultimate outdoor dining experience. Beyond the pool is the peaceful Laem Sor beach.
Ban Mekkala is the ultimate getaway home that provides the best of all things desired. With an understated design style, its extensive living space and idyllic location provide residents with privacy and seclusion. However, when required, the added entertainment features of the property make it perfect for that family reunion, holiday with friends or wedding celebration.
