This vibrant modern villa is located on a hillside above the southern end of Surin Beach, mid-way along Phuket’s scenic west cost. One of eight properties on an exclusive private estate, three-bedroomed Villa Sammasan is a great family choice for a tropical Thai holiday.
All rooms at the villa open to wide views out over the treetops and beyond to the Andaman Sea and there is plenty of outdoor space around the pool for fun and relaxation. The central living and dining area is fronted by a wall of glass panels that fold back to the furnished deck, nine-metre infinity pool and shaded poolside sala with its cushioned comfort. Inside, the funky eight-seater dining table and a sleek modern kitchen with breakfast bar counter lie at one end of the room and a comfortable leather suite and coffee table at the other. This room – in common with all others at the villa – is decorated with bright modern artwork, adding splashes of colour to the fresh white interiors. Woodwork and bathroom fittings also come in vibrant hues, creating a fun, relaxed ambiance throughout the villa. Behind the living area is a media room equipped with a flat-screen TV and furnished with a deep comfy L-shaped sofa, which can be converted to a queen-size bed if extra space is needed. A guest washroom can be accessed from here.
A huge master suite occupies the entire upper floor of Villa Sammasan, furnished with a king-size modern four-poster bed and stylish chaise-longue. The smart ensuite bedroom has a twin vanity, jacuzzi bath tub with ocean views, shower enclosure and separate WC. Two similarly sized guest bedrooms (one furnished with a queen-size bed, the other with twins plus a roll-away bed) are tucked below the pool on the villa’s lower level, each with an ensuite bathroom and floor-to-ceiling windows opening onto small balconies.
Holidays at Villa Sammasan are an effortless delight thanks to the efficient services of a villa manager, Thai chef and friendly housekeeping staff. The chef is on hand to cook lunches and dinner according to a tempting priced menu of Thai and Western delights, but the villa is also well placed for many excellent restaurants should guests wish to dine out. Glamorous Surin and pretty Laem Singh beaches are both within walking distance of Villa Sammasan and Phuket International airport is just 24km away.

Villa Sammasan is part of the Surin Heights private estate, which comprises 10 luxury villas and a low-rise condominium. Set up the hillside near the end of the estate’s private road, the villa offers a full and majestic view of Surin bay on Phuket’s central west coast.
A five-minute walk down the hill takes you to Surin Beach, an 800m stretch of fine sand that has been cleared of all commercial activity and restored to its natural state. Take a longer walk down the road towards Kamala and find the hidden Laem Singh Beach, a small cove with lovely clear water for snorkelling. A few kilometres to the north is Bang Tao Beach, where part of the shoreline is lined with the several Laguna Phuket resorts and their spas, water sports, golf, upscale dining and other leisure activities. Find sunset cocktails and the occasional DJ party at the sprinkling of beach clubs along the sand.
In the hills and headlands around Surin Beach are some of Phuket’s finest villas and resorts including the Amanpuri celebrity escape and Twinpalms with its sought-after Sunday brunches. Surin is thankfully still resisting Phuket’s mega mall trend, but there are certainly some shopping treasures to be found here in the boutique clothing, art and gift shops in Surin Plaza and the independent shops along the streets.
