Tropical Thai modernism
Thickly clustered coconut grove
There’s more to Thai paradise isle Koh Phangan than its full moon to celebrate – its gold-dust beaches, fairy-tale jungle waterfalls and lustrous coating of coconut palms. Coyly peeking out from one of these dense groves is tropical-modernist marvel Anaia Villa, an estate that doesn’t skimp on life’s small and significant luxuries. Aside from the main house, with a cinema room and infinity pool with a bar, there are serene garden pavilions, a yoga shala, spa and hammam, viewing platform overlooking the Gulf of Thailand and rollicking acres of mango trees and shaggy palms. Plus, with five bedrooms (one in the villa, and four in the grounds) that each enjoy a spectacular aspect. But, it’s ravishing and responsible, built contoured to the land (a giant boulder has been made a feature in the living room) and operating as greenly as its verdant surrounds.
