Villa Malabar – A Luxury Minimalist Home In Tranquil Seclusion

Villa Malabar offers travelers a luxurious coastal home, dressed in elegant modern couture and interwoven with the vibrant beauty of its environment. Clean, smart, and blending seamlessly to its surroundings, the villa presents one of the most impressive examples of modern-minimalist architecture in the region. Combined with its rich array of amenities, it is listed as among the top luxury villas in Koh Samui. Malabar is found along the peaceful Laem Sor Beach, where it shares tranquil seclusion to its fortunate visitors.

Secluded Coastal Setting

At its southern side, Koh Samui preserves its peaceful local village character which once prevailed throughout the entire island. Here, Villa Malabar is set in a spacious expanse of beachfront land, co-existing with the magnificent boulders and the swaying palm trees of Laem Sor Beach.

A well-groomed yard separates Villa Malabar’s pool area from the quiet sands of Laem Sor Beach.

Unlike on the more popular beaches of the island, people do not come here to enjoy bars or restaurants. This part of Koh Samui is reserved for those in search of tranqulity and relaxation. Though not as ideal for swimming, it is free of crowds and enjoys a laid-back atmosphere which is favored by many vacationers.

Though secluded, the villa is only a 15-minute drive from the restaurants and commercial establishments of Lamai and Taling Ngam.

Modern Minimalist Design

One of the villa’s most striking features is its design. The sleek, linear profile creates a clever yet playful contrast to the spectacular boulders and pre-existing palm trees that line the property’s beachfront. Its living area features floor-to-ceiling glass doors that slide open from all sides for a seamless indoor-outdoor living experience.

Malabar was designed to embrace the natural elements of this coastal landscape. In some of the bedrooms, walls embrace the huge rocks protruding from the ground, incorporating them into the aesthetic features of the villa interior. Rooms and living areas are oriented to face the gulf waters, fully welcoming the view with full-wall glass doors and windows.

The layout of the areas and placement of walls have all been well-thought to create a smooth flow between interior and exterior spaces. It is done in such a way that it blurs the consciousness of occupants of being indoors and outdoors.

Luxury Amenities and Services

In contrast to its seemingly rural setting, the villa is filled with the luxurious delights of urban living. Malabar houses two separate media rooms equipped with Apple TVs and a PlayStation console. The villa also comes with a fitness room, an office, and a fabulous western-style kitchen.
