The property is set on three levels. In the centre stands a two-storey building with two twin bedrooms on the ground floor alongside the infinity pool, sun terrace and outside dining and barbecue area. Above this is an open-plan, informal living area with kitchen, comfortable dining and lounge areas with full length glass doors leading out to a covered terrace with a huge dining table seating 12 and even more fabulous ocean views.
On each side of this main building is a master bedroom pavilion set among the landscaped tropical gardens. Below the pool level lies the fifth bedroom.
With picture-postcard ocean views from almost everywhere, Villa Sila Varee’s main living area has concertina style glass walls that fold open to blur the boundaries between inside and out. The interior décor features Anglo-Burmese tables, Tibetan furniture, Balinese teak coffee tables, contemporary works of art, sisal rugs and custom-made sofas. Hand-made light fittings highlight the rattan lined vaulted ceilings. The kitchen is modern whilst retaining a comfortable, casual feel. A dining table for four sits inside, whilst a massive Balinese dining table for twelve takes pride of place on the covered terrace. Complimentary breakfast is served here every morning. Two coffee tables with comfy chairs also populate the terrace. WiFi is available throughout as well as satellite TV viewed on High Definition LCD flat-screens and a Hi-Fi sound system with iPod dock linked to both interior and exterior speakers.
This lovely indoor–outdoor living area is a great place to relax and unwind to some favourite music, enjoy a movie, or bury yourself in a good book.
The 9.5-metre salt-water infinity pool is protected by solid glass balustrades and has gentle steps down into its depths. Stave off the tropical heat with a refreshing dip while admiring the ocean views below or the jungle-clad hillside above. A large limestone sun terrace furnished with five sun loungers and a large sofa encourages you to soak up some sunshine, whilst a covered barbecue area provides seats in the shade and comes with an outdoor kitchen where you can rustle up a snack or mix a cocktail or two.
The two master bedrooms both offer outdoor relaxation on timber decks furnished with a pair of sunbeds, and the lawned landscaped garden next to Master bedroom 1 makes a shady sanctuary for children and adults alike.
All five bedrooms at Villa Sila Varee are decorated with antique Asian art and have air conditioning, ensuite bathrooms with rain showers and dressing areas, a digital safe, WiFi and satellite TV with High Definition LCD screens, DVD players, yoga mats, a fridge and tea/coffee making facilities.
Master Suite 1
Master suite 1 is set in a stand-alone two-storey pavilion, has 3.5 metre-wide, full length windows looking out over the infinity pool and the ocean and its own sun deck with two sunbeds. On the mezzanine level is a living area with a sink-into sofa and arm chair, coffee table and hidden flat-screen TV. Upstairs is the king-size contemporary four-poster bed and ensuite bathroom with two sinks, a jacuzzi bath and two showers, one of which is outside and built into the rocky hillside. Feel at one with nature in this blissful sanctuary and let those tranquil ocean views soothe you into a perfect day.
Master Suite 2
This second stand-alone bedroom pavilion is virtually identical to Master Suite 1 but without the inside shower. It offers the same gorgeous interior, luxurious facilities and spectacular views.
Twin Bedrooms 3 and 4
Conveniently situated next door to each other and facing the infinity pool and sun deck, both of these rooms have twin beds that can easily be joined together to make a double if required. With bathrooms crafted into the rock of the hillside behind and full-length sliding glass doors open to those magical ocean views at the front, these rooms luxuriate in their natural surrounds.
Double bedroom 5
This bedroom with king-size bed offers views down the hillside and across the ocean right from your bed. Slightly smaller than the other rooms, and tucked away below the rest of the villa, this room is a peaceful spot for quietly admiring the view. The room’s ensuite bathroom is fitted with a rain shower.
