Every bedroom at Baan Paa Talee Estate is furnished with a netted king-size bed looking out over the ocean through walls of floor-to-ceiling glass that can be opened up for a full tropical living experience if desired. Rooms can be cooled with either air-conditioning or ceiling fans. Warm, honey-gold teak features heavily in vaulted ceilings, dressing areas and flooring and every room comes with a safety deposit box and a sound system with Bluetooth connectivity.
Bathrooms are sleek, spacious air-conditioned sanctuaries, finished in black slate – most with wide, ocean-facing windows. All are ensuite, apart from one shared bathroom that is centrally positioned between two connecting guest bedrooms.
MASTER SUITE ONE
With commanding views over the rest of the villa and the ocean, this enormous open-plan suite combines living, sleeping, study and bathing areas in one stylish space fronted its entire length with floor-to-ceiling glass.
To one end is the bed and a neat alcove furnished with a desk and chair. In the centre, set in front of a range of fitted wardrobes, is a comfortable sitting area, and at the far end is the bathroom space, with a black slate floor, bath tub, double vanity and frosted glass WC and shower cubicles. Golden teak features strongly in the vaulted ceiling, furnishings and floors.
MASTER SUITE TWO
The second master suite is entered through an air-conditioned study from which a flight of steps leads down to one of the guest bedrooms. A wide ocean-facing balcony wraps around the front of this suite, leading to a very private garden where a curved daybed lies under the shade of a frangipani tree screening an alfresco shower.
Back inside, below a vaulted ceiling, the bed is positioned for maximum views, with glass on three sides and a very generous dressing room behind. The bathroom features a tub-with-a-view and a super-size shower cubicle as well as a twin, back-to-back vanity area.
GUEST BEDROOMS THREE AND FOUR
Positioned on the ground floor, below master suite one, these two connecting bedrooms are mirror images of each other, with a shared bathroom lying between them. In both rooms, the walls to the rear are lined with fitted teak shelving space and storage. Bedrooms three and four make an ideal family suite and will also suit couples who cherish their own sleeping space.
GUEST BEDROOM FIVE
Connected by an internal stairway to master suite two, and also accessed by a doorway from a pretty garden courtyard that lies next to the pool deck, this fifth guest bedroom is spacious and bright. Near the entrance is a comfy daybed and beyond the king-size bed is a bathroom with sea-view tub and shower.
GUEST BEDROOM SIX
This long bedroom, opens to a desk and chair on one side and bathroom on the other before reaching the alcoved dressing area and bed, which is accented with regal silver and gold fabrics. Also south facing, the views from this room offer a different perspective to those of the rest of the villa.
GUEST BEDROOM SEVEN
At the top of the villa grounds, next to the gym pavilion, lies the seventh guest bedroom, which – with two king-size beds plus a daybed that could sleep an additional child – makes a great family suite. This room also features a compact kitchen/bar area with a fridge and sink. Views are over the coastline to the south of the villa and the orange-gold accents of the soft furnishings reflect the sun’s rays. To the rear is a shower room and WC.
OCEAN VILLA – GUEST BEDROOMS EIGHT AND NINE
Two identical guest bedrooms are tucked below the living and dining room on the ground floor of the secluded Ocean Villa. A balcony runs across the front of this private paradise and the sliding glass doors can be widely opened to create a truly tropical ambiance. To the rear of each room are frosted glass shower and WC cubicles either side of a vanity area. Built into the teak bedheads are neat shelving units fitted with reading lights.
