GARY FELL, MODERNIST AND ARCHITECT DESIGNS A TROPICAL SANCTUARY
Koh Samui, Surat Thani Province, Thailand: “Napa” is a Thai word that means “sky” – an appropriate name for Koh Samui’s newest ocean front estate featuring ten, US$ 1.85 million (THB 61 million) luxury villas with lofty, wide ocean views over the Gulf of Thailand.
Renowned architect Gary Fell from Gfab has combined Thai design elements with modern open plan living and large free form pools to create a chic, comfortable mix of 50’s Palm Springs elegance and tropical island hideaway. Perched above Cheong Mon Beach on Koh Samui’s secluded north coast, Napa’s ten luxury villas sit on large plots of up to 1600m².
As 3-4 bedroom bachelor pads, corporate retreat or a luxury holiday homes for a modern family, Napa villas showcase large entertainment areas on split levels for maxim views. Interiors are crisp and stylish using local Asian stone and hardwoods with large built-ins and customized furniture.
“Napa is a welcome addition to Indigo’s Luxury 2008 Collection”, say Tom Travers, Managing Partner of Indigo Real Estate, “and these villas certainly fit our criteria for luxury: Great location, world-class architectural design of both inside and outside space and a well executed property management solution. We expect these to be very popular because the design/development team for Napa recently completed Samujana (also on Samui) which sold out quickly”.
Koh Samui is located in the Gulf of Thailand, 35km northeast of Sarathani. It is surrounded by about sixty other islands, most of which comprise the Ang Thong National Marine Park, but also include other tourist destinations Ko Pha Ngan and Ko Tao. Napa’s private, quite location in Cheong Mon gives easy access to the international airport and Chaweng town, the island’s main tourist area.
Indigo’s 2008 Luxury Collection also includes four additional developments located in Phuket including The Natai, Sava, Istana and Bluepoint Condominiums. Indigo Real Estate enjoys a solid reputation as one of Asia’s leading luxury property specialists offering the region’s most luxurious beachfront homes, property and private islands.
