Perfect for families and groups of friends Villa Anar is a high-end villa you could happily spend your whole vacation relaxing and playing in. Not that there aren’t places of interest nearby it’s simply that you’ll immediately feel right at home at Villa Anar and not want to leave.
If you were wondering about the name, Anar is the ancient Persian name for the pomegranate fruit though over the centuries the name has been adopted by a great many Indic, Turkic and Euro-Asian languages. And ‘Anar’ was the name for the sun in J.R.R. Tolkien’s Middle-earth writings including The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. That latter reference is significant because Villa Anar is positioned perfectly so that you can enjoy the sunrise to the east each morning and the stunning sunsets to the west in the early evening.
As you approach the villa your eyes are drawn straight away to the ocean that laps gently onto the beach just a few steps from the villa. On your right are two of the en-suite bedrooms, the Thai kitchen and the main living, dining and guest kitchen. To the left are a further two en-suite bedrooms plus the Master bedroom which overlooks the ocean.
In-between the bedrooms is a lawn, cascading water features and a large swimming pool with Jacuzzi and shallower depths that are ideal for younger children. And as the pool is 12 metres by 6 metres you can comfortably get some laps in should you feel like swimming rather than paddling. There is also a large lawn between the pool and the beach (7 metres from the pool to the beach-front wall), an outdoor decking area, massage sala and footbath so you can clean your feet as you step off the beach and plenty of space for everyone to relax on the sun-loungers.
But let’s step into the main indoor living and dining area. It’s glass-fronted from floor to ceiling on two sides allowing lots of natural daylight and fantastic views of the beach and the sea. And of course it is fully air-conditioned as are all the bedrooms. Inside there are very comfortable sofas and a huge wall-mounted flat screen TV should you wish to catch up on the international news or watch sports or the latest movies. And there is an excellent sound system with speakers indoors and outdoors, the latter being disguised as a natural rock so that it blends in beautifully within the garden and beach.
There is large teak dining table that seats ten and a fully-fitted guest kitchen within the main living area. Along with a breakfast bar and stools, the open-plan guest kitchen also has a fridge/freezer, a temperature controlled wine-cooler, a table top hob, an oven, an integrated coffee machine, a dishwasher plus all the crockery, cutlery and glassware you could ever need. All of the appliances are of the very highest quality manufactured by Küppersbusch the renowned German company.
The villa comes with a private chef as well as a Villa Manager and domestic staff. And the chef has a separate commercial kitchen so that any cooking aromas don’t permeate throughout the main living area. Your chef can also host a Thai cooking class for you and take you and your guests to the local daily markets which they visit every day for the freshest produce.
Directly across from the living room is the Master bedroom which overlooks the ocean. And you can step directly from the Master bedroom into the swimming pool. It has a large bathroom with a separate shower and an enticing Terrazzo bath big enough for two. All of the bedrooms are just a step or two from the pool and as you look around them and around the villa you’ll see lots of very interesting design features and ornamentation.
The interior design was carried out by an expert interior design team who have worked on countless award-winning properties throughout Thailand and Indonesia. As they explained, their brief was to encompass the modern and the traditional. “The first thing that strikes you about Villa Anar is the stunning views and we wanted to bring a contemporary yet minimalist feel to each and every room in the villa. In the main living area we accentuated the natural brightness and gave a focus to each part; the living room; the dining area and the guest kitchen. And we looked at each bedroom as separate entities and the artwork was specifically created by our Indonesian artists for each bedroom. These are bespoke prints, unique to Villa Anar. We also accessorized each room with carefully chosen ornaments and Jim Thompson fabrics and each room has its own unique style.”
Villa Anar has plenty of parking spaces, CCTV back and front, 24 hour security and Wi-Fi throughout. The villa is located on a quiet stretch of beach but it’s also just a short walk to the long stretch of the main section of Bang Por beach which is home to more than 20 beach-front restaurants serving local seafood, Thai regional specialities and international cuisine and the 5 star Four Seasons Hotel is a couple of minutes away and can also be reached by boat. The town of Nathon is just a five minute drive away and it also has plenty of seafront restaurants, coffee-houses, a supermarket, all manner of shops and a nightly food market on the seafront that is well worth a visit.
Villa Anar is unique, it has been lovingly and thoughtfully designed, it has spell-binding views and it’s now ready and waiting for you. Welcome to Villa Anar – your home away from home on Koh Samui. See more details
