Villa Fah Sai at the Samsara Estate blends the striking contemporary design elements of Frank Lloyd Wright with the refined comforts of a luxury tropical retreat. Having formerly graced the pages of The New York Times as one of its featured "Great Homes of the World", this is a truly unique and elegant seaside residence.
Making the most of its majestic location, this modern two-level home utilizes strong horizontal lines to provide uninterrupted panoramic views from all its spacious rooms. The grand entrance opens into a wide living room, the space naturally lit with the suns rays radiating through the paneled glass facade, which can be opened to draw in the balmy ocean breeze. A plush, oversized sofa provides front row seats for the eyes to gaze over an onyx-tiled reflecting pond that seemlessly melts into Naka Lay Bay and the shimmering Andaman Sea beyond.
The clean lines and wide airy spaces of the upper level rooms create unique elements that define the house. Walking through the main atrium, an elegant dining area leads into a bright kitchen,the latter fully equipped with the latest gourmet appliances. Casual bites can be enjoyed in a cozy built-in breakfast nook, while an adjoining terrace provides diners with tempting al fresco optionsor more formal culinary journeys with a view.
As the day winds down, guests can retire into one of five private bedrooms, each one designed as a personal retreat complete with ensuite bathroom. Apart from the master bedroom, which is nestled into a quiet corner on the upper level, all bedrooms open onto the villas expansive lower level poolside veranda, the perfect place to congregate for a sunset cocktail or simply between dips in the enticing 18-meter fresh water infinity pool.
