With its exquisite coastal setting on Cape Yamu offering both sunrise and sunset views, Villa Sapna is a luxury holiday escape like no other. Its modern, bright interiors with vivid works of art and designer furnishings open fully to a large outdoor area with a 20-metre pool, sundeck and tropical gardens with a surrounding panorama of brilliant blue sea and sky.
A close-to-nature feel is captivatingly contrasted by avant-garde accents throughout the villa, especially in the living and dining area that brims with whimsy and colour. Faces are a strong feature in this room with a luscious-lipped portrait of a woman by Thai artist Attasit Pokpong and two smiling self-portraits by Chinese artist Yue Min Jun on display. The large family room, with its two sitting areas and a study opens completely to the pool terrace. Enjoy a workout with a view in the private gym, or gather to watch the sunset from the rooftop terrace. Each bedroom offers fabulous sea views, and a large sunken jacuzzi is among the added flourishes of luxury in the poolside master suite.
The villa has a big modern kitchen, but with a skilful chef available for every meal, guests are unlikely to spend much time here. Private dining is just one element of the five-star experience at Villa Sapna: a villa manager is on hand to ensure that every guest need is met, and a housekeeper attends daily to keep the villa pristine. The villa’s extraordinary sea-view setting also offers a dreamy backdrop for a wedding or event for up to 40 guests.
Cape Yamu is home to a few luxury villa estates but the area is mostly given to a rural landscape of forested hills and plantations of rubber, banana and pineapple. Sapam Bay is a five-minute walk away from the villa, its calm waters shimmering gold at sunset. Phang Nga Bay beckons to the east, with limestone islands to explore by chartering a boat at the nearby pier or east coast marinas. Though the villa’s location feels blissfully secluded, many good dining choices, shopping centres, spas, golf courses and swimming beaches are within a half hour’s drive.
Villa Sapna’s living areas and bedrooms are arranged over two floors in two peak-roofed pavilions set around the 20 x 5 metre pool, with superb sea views from every room.
The pavilion at the foot of the pool houses the open-plan living and dining area, kitchen and one guest bedroom on the ground floor, with a second guest bedroom upstairs. A lift connects this pavilion’s ground floor to the car park area below. The second pavilion, which houses the gym and master bedroom on the ground floor and two guest bedrooms upstairs, includes the family room and rooftop terrace in a single-storey wing that extends the length of the pool.
Villa Sapna’s stylish living areas form an L-shape around the pool terrace. Every room can be cooled by either air conditioning or by ceiling fans and sliding doors that let tropical breezes flow through. A Roche Bobois designer sofa in a boho striped and floral design forms a functional art piece that draws the eye into the bright, cheerful living and dining area, where the walls are adorned with vivid contemporary paintings. The solid timber dining table seats 14, while a black granite island in the adjacent kitchen offers breakfast-bar seating for five. The large, modern kitchen is available and well equipped for guests, but likely to be used mainly by the villa chef.
The family room offers a chic yet cosy spot to unwind, with two sets of sand-toned sofas arranged in a TV lounge area and sitting area. Sliding glass doors across the entire front of the room open to the pool terrace for open-air tropical living. An office nook with a desk, bookshelves and printer is set in the back corner of this room, while the gym with elliptical and weight-resistance equipment is found in a separate room behind.
Every outdoor living area at Villa Sapna offers sweeping views over the sea, with the 20-metre pool forming the focal point surrounded by lawn, tropical gardens and sand-wash terracing. A large all-weather sofa and six sunbeds invite poolside relaxation, and a barbecue and outdoor dining table for eight provide the perfect setting for guests to indulge in a grilled seafood feast under the stars. Early-morning swimmers are rewarded with sunrise views over Phang Nga Bay, while the comfortably furnished rooftop terrace is the place to gather for cocktails and take in the colourful sunsets over Sapam Bay.
Each of the five bedrooms at Villa Sapna is a bright, modern haven with floor-to-ceiling glass doors offering fabulous ocean views. All have double beds, ensuite bathrooms, air conditioning, ceiling fans and open to either a private balcony, the rooftop patio or garden. The poolside master suite has a double sunken jacuzzi for some added romantic flair, while the ground-floor guest room has a cosy living area with a TV and sofa. Peaked ceilings in the three upstairs guest bedrooms lend a sense of grandeur.
Cape Yamu is a lush headland on the eastern edge of Phuket that juts between Phang Nga Bay and Sapam Bay. Villa Sapna is one of 18 villas in the secured estate, The Bay at Yamu, but its position offers complete privacy and unfettered views. Just a five-minute walk down the hill is a beachfront promenade and small pier that leads to a local village with a few local food shops and an open-air seafood restaurant. The pier is a launching point for trips to nearby islands and kayaks and speedboats are available for hire. A jog or stroll around here in the evening is especially scenic when calm Sapam Bay turns crimson at sunset. Though the surrounding area is largely rural and rustic, nearby Breeze restaurant offers a fine dining experience and long table Sunday lunches.
