SLOW Magazine - - Contents -

Phuket has long been an ideal choice for ex­pats want­ing to re­lo­cate to paradise – Surin Villa, with its stun­ning views of the is­land, of­fers a dis­tinc­tive en­vi­ron­ment in which to revel in the beauty of Phuket.

when choos­ing to up­root your life from a city you have known for decades to re­plant in a dis­tant land, there should be some­thing es­pe­cially spec­tac­u­lar about your new choice of home in or­der to make the tran­si­tion eas­ier – and, as many ex­pats would agree, there is def­i­nitely some­thing special about Phuket, Thai­land.

Phuket is one of Thai­land’s most pop­u­lar tourist des­ti­na­tions. Idyl­lic, white sand beaches with sweep­ing views of the An­daman sea are the per­fect places to re­lax by day, and the coast is dot­ted with bars, night­clubs, and restau­rants where tourists and lo­cals spend rev­el­ling dur­ing balmy Thai evenings.

But the is­land, dubbed The Pearl of the An­daman, is not only about drinks and danc­ing. There are many other activities to par­take in, from the ex­tremely re­lax­ing to more adren­a­line-pump­ing va­ri­ety.

About a 10-minute drive from the air­port is Nai Yang Beach, on which the The Phuket Mar­riott Re­sort and Spa of­fers yoga classes to start your day on a sooth­ing note. Tak­ing to the sea, many wa­ter sports are on of­fer, from kayak­ing and kitesurf­ing, to stand-up pad­dle­board­ing and game fish­ing. Phuket is among the top-10 div­ing des­ti­na­tions in the world be­cause of its spec­tac­u­lar reefs and marine life, but if you would rather forgo the oxy­gen tank, snorkelling is also a great way to see the won­der­fully colourful world un­der the waves.

All this makes Phuket a paradise, which is why many have cho­sen to set up a per­ma­nent base on the is­land. of course, when re­lo­cat­ing to paradise, you would want to take full ad­van­tage of the idyl­lic views of­fered by the is­land.

surin Villa, due to its location on a hill­side, boasts spec­tac­u­lar views of the ocean, as well as the sur­round­ing trop­i­cal land­scape.

This spa­cious home was made for out­door liv­ing. There is a large fresh­wa­ter in­fin­ity pool, as well as a Jacuzzi, both over­look­ing the An­daman sea. The wooden deck with out­door fur­ni­ture is ideal for re­lax­ing and tak­ing in the views. on the rooftop, another Jacuzzi, a cas­cad­ing wa­ter­fall, and panoramic views of the lush sur­round­ings all ce­ment surin Villa’s rep­u­ta­tion as a lux­u­ri­ous home.

while the is­land may be the per­fect home for spend­ing time out­doors, the villa’s in­te­ri­ors are also cer­tainly some­thing to mar­vel at. De­signed to take ad­van­tage of the fab­u­lous location, surin Villa has large win­dows and glass doors over­look­ing the out­side area and the sea beyond. walls are light and neu­tral in colour, and ceil­ings are

high, cre­at­ing even more space. The open­plan kitchen flows into the din­ing room which, when the glass doors are open, flows into the out­side sit­ting area. Fur­nish­ing is con­tem­po­rary – fo­cal point art­works and sculp­tures adorn the rooms, and an in­door gar­den is a dis­tinc­tive fea­ture around the base of the stair­case.

More than 3,000 m² in floor space over four floors, surin Villa com­prises eight bed­rooms, all en suite and all with seafac­ing views, with the master suite and four other bed­rooms en­joy­ing di­rect ac­cess to the swim­ming pool. The kitchen is one of the most unique as­pects of the home, as it has both a western and Thai style kitchen, fea­tur­ing high-end ap­pli­ances that will as­sist any chef, whether pro­fes­sional or a home cook, in cre­at­ing fab­u­lous dishes which can be en­joyed in the spa­cious din­ing area or out­side. Add to this al­ready im­pres­sive home a cinema with nine elec­tron­i­cally con­trolled, com­fort­able seats, a wine cel­lar, and a fitness centre, and it’s clear that surin Villa is a con­tem­po­rary palace in an is­land paradise.

As the mul­ti­tude of ex­pats who have made Phuket their new home would agree, when it comes to the warm wa­ters of the ocean and awe-in­spir­ing scenery, Phuket is a trop­i­cal paradise and a special place to plant roots. And the mod­ern, lux­ury homes on of­fer all around the coast make the process of re­plant­ing that much eas­ier. For more in­for­ma­tion, please visit www.sig­na­tur­eres­i­dencesworld­wide.com.
