Designed by renowned architect David Clarke, Ban Mekkala is absolutely the study in laid-back sophistication and modern tropical luxury. Every feature in this Laem Sor beach-located resort-style retreat has been thought out – from its stunning entrance, the grand double-storey pavilion, stunning views towards the azure seascape, the pavilion-wrapped T-shaped pool, home theatre, and each of the six air-conditioned ensuite bedrooms bedecked in three distinctive styles. The main living space is housed on the upper storey of the main pavilion, and serves as an all-in-one open-planned TV salon, dining room, gourmet kitchen, and open-air balcony that’s ideal for entertaining.
In contrast, the ground floor conveys the feel of the cloistered sanctuary, thanks to the central pool and inner courtyard garden. Featuring six bedrooms including two master suites, each bedroom offers a private haven complete with King bed, entertainment system and an ensuite bathroom with outdoor courtyards or walk-in shower and bathtub, as well as direct access to the pool or sea. For al fresco days and nights, a lovely stone path leads to a stunning sunken poolside pavilion to enjoy delicious feasts whipped up by your very own personal Thai chef.
