South Villa is one of two mirror-image villas set side by side along the beachfront of Natai. The villa’s main building faces the sea and houses a dining and living area and a modern kitchen under a vaulted roof. Door panels slide open to connect with North Villa, creating twice as much living space, when the villas are booked together. The pavilion opens fully to a pool terrace, with a sunbed-lined 12-metre swimming pool, outdoor shower and ocean-view sala. A shared lawn and garden area extends from the terrace to the sand. Just a few steps behind the main pavilion is the two-storey bedroom pavilion. Three bedrooms are arranged on the ground floor, while an outdoor staircase leads to two ocean-view bedrooms on the top floor, all with ensuite bathrooms.
South Villa features a bright and comfy living area in an open-plan pavilion with high ceilings and floor-to-ceiling glass doors offering gorgeous sea views. The pavilion is air conditioned, but the doors also slide open to the pool terrace for a sea-breeze-cooled alternative. A 14-seat solid-wood dining table is positioned at the front of the pavilion for prime views and easy access to the pool terrace. Next to the dining area is the guest kitchen, a large and modern space in crisp white and honey-toned wood with a long island counter lined with bar stools – perfect for enjoying a casual breakfast. Just behind the dining space is a living area with earth-toned sofas providing a cosy spot to relax and watch movies on the large flat-screen TV.
The sands of Natai are just a few steps across the villa’s lawn, and though the beach is not private it has a secluded feel with plenty of space – several kilometres in fact! – to lay a towel. South Villa offers ample space to relax in the tropical breezes with its 12-metre swimming pool, lined by a sandwash terrace with sunbeds, an outdoor shower and a sala with lounge seating. The tropical gardens and lawn that extend between the villa terrace and the beach are shared with North Villa and kept in pristine condition. Koi ponds between the living and bedroom pavilions enhance the sense of tranquillity and harmony with nature. More outdoor facilities include four bicycles, two kayaks and pool toys, available to all guests.
Ocean View Bedrooms
With their floor-to-ceiling windows, South Villa’s two top-floor bedroom suites offer superb views of the sea. Each bedroom is cooled by air conditioning and ceiling fans and furnished with a king-sized bed, a flat-screen TV, wardrobe with safe, and all-weather furniture that can be moved outside to the balcony if preferred. In addition to an ensuite bathroom with a shower, each bedroom offers a tropical outdoor shower.
The Ocean View rooms are reached via an external staircase, and when availability allows, they can be booked together with the five-bedroom North Villa for a seven-bedroom option.
Garden View Bedrooms
These two air-conditioned and fan-cooled ground-floor bedrooms each feature sliding glass doors that open to koi ponds, adding a serene touch. Both bedrooms are furnished with king-sized beds, one of which converts to twin beds, as well as a TV, wardrobe and ensuite bathroom with shower.
Ideal for children, this bunk-bedded room on the ground floor is of a similar size and design to the Garden View rooms. A sofa bed provides additional sleeping space for two, and the ensuite bathroom comes with a shower.
