Villa Shambala Phuket – Luxury Villa
Villa Shambala Phuket is a peaceful holiday haven set high on a hillside estate near Surin Beach. With northern Thailand’s Lanna architecture reimagined in a modern style, this four-bedroom, fully staffed villa welcomes families and groups seeking a tranquil and refined tropical escape with sensational sea views.
Shambala, which means ‘a place of peace’ in Sanskrit, forms a stately presence on the Surin hillside, crowned by traditional Thai pitched roofs. A lift connects the ground-floor entrance and parking area to the first floor, where indoor and outdoor living areas stretch from a shaded deck with a natural rock wall at the back, to the lounge and dining rooms with their caramel-coloured teak floors, through to the terrace at the front, with its 20-metre infinity pool and alfresco sitting and dining areas. On the second floor, the four master-suite-sized bedrooms each offer king beds, lavish ensuite bathrooms and total privacy. Clean lines, vibrant décor and gorgeous custom-designed furniture reflect the villa owner’s artistic vision and love of travel. Thoughtful design and natural materials – most notably the integration of the hill’s natural rock face into the villa’s first floor living areas, brings Shambala in full harmony with its beautiful tropical surrounds.
Shambala’s serene embrace calms the soul. Let the days unfold with yoga, spa and massage sessions or simply relaxing poolside while taking in the panoramic views. A dedicated team of staff, including a Thai chef and English-speaking villa manager, offer professional and friendly service throughout the day.
Bedrooms at Villa Shambala
There’s no need to draw straws for the best bedroom at Villa Shambala. All four rooms have been designed as elegant master suites, each with sea views, generous-sized resting areas under grand peaked ceilings, polished wood floors, king-sized beds, plush sofa beds and large, lavish bathrooms in marble with double terrazzo soaker tubs and showers. Sliding glass doors across the front can be closed to seal the rooms in air-conditioned comfort or left open to let the breezes flow through with the help of the ceiling fans.
Overlooking the pool, three bedrooms share the top floor of the villa’s larger pavilion connected by a balcony walkway while one bedroom suite is set in a separate pavilion with its own balcony and staircase for added privacy.
Living Areas at Villa Shambala
Shambala’s indoor living area doesn’t feel as though it’s inside at all, courtesy of the front and back walls that open and connect fully to the tropical surrounds and offer fantastic sea views. This wide space comprises a living area to the front where a custom-designed sofa, large TV screen and audio system with surround sound are positioned just steps from the pool deck. Next to it is the dining area, where meals are elegantly served at a table for six made with solid Balinese monkeypod wood. The kitchen completes this open-plan room; a modern and well-equipped space with a pair of double ovens and top quality finishings that are put to good use by the villa chef. The granite-topped breakfast bar offers an informal spot to dine, and a good perch for watching the chef prepare delicious meals.
Shambala’s outdoor living areas extend from the front and back of the living-dining room pavilion, with the 20-metre pool stretching across the front terrace offering fabulous views of the sea and sky beyond its infinity edge. The swim-up bar with submerged granite stools is an inviting spot to relax in cool comfort, while the surrounding terrace and sala – furnished with an outdoor table for six, soft water hyacinth armchairs and loveseats – offer ample space to dine, laze and soak up the views. Yet more comfortable sitting areas are found on the shaded deck to the rear of the living area, where the hill’s natural rock face forms a dramatic backdrop. Soft lighting and orchids enhance the peaceful tone.
