Thai getaway Casas del Sol, in Koh Tao, brings a customized contemporary twist to the luxury beach bungalow, embracing progressive designs by Australian Interior Designer, Christina Saenz de Santamaria. The fresh concept seen throughout the villas has been labeled as ’Boutique Beach Chic’, which is defined as understated luxury with a modern tropical influence.
Guests at four of the five villas can enjoy a refreshing plunge in their own swimming pool, partly sheltered by an island-style thatched roof, to shade you from the sunshine during the day, but allow you to enjoy the stars as nighttime falls.
A Mediterranean style string is evident throughout the holiday home realization, contributed by the property owner’s Spanish roots, seen in cool whitewashed walls and generous use of moulded polished concrete. The modernized finca style of the Balearic Islands is mixed with an all-important local Thai influence, by way of furniture detailing in a rich native timber finish.
Casas del Sol is made up of five individually designed beach villas, in a peacefully idyllic island location, each offering two bedrooms and an open plan living space that is kept cool in the hot climate by high ceilings, generous windows, and large terrace doors.
The dwelling layouts blend indoor and outdoor spaces by continuing the relaxation area, with luxuriously oversized cushion-filled day beds, out onto a private terrace that bring you closer to the majestic ocean view.
