Get Suite and Beachy Keen in Thailand!
Start 2013 fabuliciously with a holiday to look forward to! Shall we go for a weekend escapade? The Chinese new year break, and don’t forget you need to plan for the Easter break in April! Good news, girls. There is an attractive deal for early planners if you’re planning to potter to Thailand for a bit of sun and sea.
Baan Ling Noi, a huge private holiday house in Koh Samui has been named as “one of the most luxurious villas on the island” by luxury magazine Elite Traveler. The owners are so thrilled that they are offering 25% off published rates from 1 February to end July 2012. So instead of the US$550 per day price tag for February, you just have to fork out US$412.50.
Featured in various luxury travel magazines, Baan Ling Noi is an open-plan villa perched on a hillside overlooking Koh Samui’s north coast. Around its private 14mx6m infinity-edge swimming pool are four air-conditioned, en-suite bedrooms (three doubles and a twin bed room), large terrace and over-sized sala set in the landscaped gardens. A live-in couple helps keep house and prepare brekkie, and if you like to eat in later, you can also get a private chef to come in and whip up a storm. There’s also the all important free Wi-Fi, flat screen TV and DVD player.
In terms of location, Baan Ling Noi is 10 minutes away from several beaches, the quaint Fisherman’s Village, three supermarkets and several 24-hour convenience stores. It’s also about 15 minutes from the 18-hole Santiburi Championship Golf Course and Samui International Airport.
Indigo Pearl, Phuket
If you want to live it up, try out the Indigo Pearl’s brand new private pool villas which cost a pretty penny but promises intense luxury. Designed by the renowned Bensley Design Studios, each of the seven Private Pool Villas is set within a walled garden and range from 550 to 2,500 sq m. Each villa comprises of two bungalows – one, a sleeping zone and the other a living space, plus a private swimming pool (but of course!).
The living pavilion features a lounge, dining area and boutique-size spa, complete with massage beds, steam showers and sauna. A large decking area extends to a BBQ, merging the inside and outside spaces. The bedroom pavilion features a king size bed, indoor and outdoor shower, Jacuzzi and walk-in wardrobe.
If you are coming in a large and affluent group, the three Pleasure-seeker Residences can be inter-connected opening up a three-pool, four-bedroom suite spanning 2,500 sq m – the largest villa on the island.
Considering you are forking out a minimum of 55,000 THB (or around US$1740) per day, you can expect to be pampered head to toe with “full VIP treatment” from the airport to the hotel. No need to queue, you get treated to arrival and departure immigration and baggage fast tracking, airport transfers, use of the Coral Executive Airport Lounge, porter service and 24-hour butler at the hotel.
The Indigo Pearl is located on Phuket’s sheltered northern shore, an easy 10 minutes from Phuket International Airport. The ‘all villa and suite’ property offers eight restaurants and bars, three outdoor pools, private beach club, ‘TinBox’ kids’ club, award-winning COQOON Spa, and Thai cooking school. Good to know: It’s ‘garden of Eden’ style COQOON spa, features a signature treatment room which is suspended in mid-air, hanging from supposedly Phuket’s oldest Banyan tree.
