Villa Torcello’s bedrooms and living areas are arranged in pavilions around wide terraces over three levels on the hillside. At entrance-level, where a lovely lily-pond forms the central feature, a two-storey pavilion houses the villa’s dining room and kitchen on its lower level and the grand master suite above. A spectacularly situated guest bedroom lies to one corner, while opposite is a large shaded relaxation sala, the living room and another lavishly appointed guest bedroom. A staircase leads down to the swimming pool and deck, games room, two connected guest bedrooms and the family room and study area.
Torcello’s indoor gathering places are luxurious sanctuaries, ideal for entertaining or simply relaxing in style. The vaulted living room near the villa entrance offers a grand reception area with a set of sofas positioned to take in the sea views, and a telescope for scanning the tropical night sky. To the rear of the room is another set of comfortable chairs surrounded by Asian antiques and artwork. In the open-plan kitchen and dining room is a circular dining table fringed with ten soft red chairs that offers an elegant setting for enjoying the chef’s delicious Thai meals. The guest kitchen is modern and bright with a Gaggenau stove, four-seat granite breakfast bar and stainless steel appliances.
On the villa’s lower level, the games room is well equipped with a pool table, Apple TV and DVD home theatre, a PlayStation 4, dart board and a selection of board games and books. Cosy lounge seating and tables with stools offer plenty of space to relax in air-conditioned comfort. Nearby is the family room, equipped with another home theatre system, furnished with a plush sofa and carpeted to add a cosy touch. At the back of the family room is a stately study area, complete with a solid wood desk, bookshelves and two leather lounge chairs.
Torcello’s outdoor living areas are stylishly furnished and offer dazzling views of the sea and sky. At the heart of the villa is a lily pond populated with colourful koi fish, while alongside the living room pavilion is a shaded sitting area with bamboo wicker chairs. Near the dining pavilion on the other side of the pond is a barbecue area. On a mezzanine level above the pool is a large fan-cooled sala where guests can relax back on built-in sofas and enjoy the wonderful views. A few steps further down is the fabulous jacuzzi, which spills into the 25-metre-long pool just below. The pool terrace is lined with chic white double sunbeds and sofas, and at one end is a bar serving between-swim refreshments.
Torcello’s dreamy master suite takes pride of place at the top of the villa, with superb sea views and plenty of inside and outside space for guests to unwind. A vaulted wood ceiling forms a cathedral-like arch over the four-poster king bed, while the ensuite bathroom, with its double jacuzzi bathtub, double vanity set and marble finishings, is an inviting place to linger. Sliding glass doors open to a wrap-around balcony furnished with a chic sofa set canopied in white organza. Tucked behind is a walled ‘Zen’ garden area with two loungers, an outdoor shower and a double bathtub ‘floating’ in a reflecting pool.
This bedroom is all about taking in the fantastic views and relaxing in privacy. The bedroom suite is similar in size and style to the master bedroom, with a vaulted ceiling and king-sized bed. Floor-to-ceiling windows on two walls open to the wraparound balcony, while the ensuite bathroom in marble features a soaker tub, double vanity set and spa shower.
This suite has a hidden-away feel, and offers lots of space and comfort. In the bedroom, the king-sized bed rests under a vaulted wood ceiling while its three walls of floor-to-ceiling glass give it an outdoor aura. This room features a walk-through wardrobe and ensuite bathroom with a bathtub, double vanity and shower.
Just steps away from the swimming pool, this king-bedded room has an interior door linking it to twin-bedded guest bedroom 5, making the two rooms a great choice for families. The room is lavishly furnished and features a large ensuite bathroom in marble with a double vanity set and shower.
Adjoining guest bedroom 4, this poolside room is perfect for families. The only room with twin beds (easily converts to king), it also features a soaker bathtub, double vanity and shower in its marble ensuite bathroom.
Villa Torcello is an exceptional holiday home set in a hillside estate near Kamala Beach with breath-taking views across the Andaman Sea. This five-bedroom retreat brims with luxurious comforts, yet its contemporary design, arranged over three levels, blends harmoniously with its tropical surrounds.
To step inside Torcello is to be swept into a heavenly realm where the views soothe the senses and glamorous living areas inspire the soul. Koi carp glide through the tranquil waters of a lily pond to welcome you at the villa entrance. Continue through to the lavish living room (where a telescope is set up for star-gazing), the designer kitchen and the elegant, open-sided dining pavilion. Ease into the 25-metre pool with its calming waterfall feature, or enjoy a refreshing soak in the eight-person jacuzzi. Savour the views and tropical sunshine on the wide terrace furnished with double sunbeds and sofas, or sip sunset cocktails at the poolside bar. Later, head over to the games room to shoot some pool or watch a movie in the family room. Extensive use of quality wood, granite and marble throughout brings nature inside while glittering décor accents and captivating art pieces including bronze statues, temple spires and intricate wood carvings add some eye-catching flair.
The five bedrooms are dispersed over all three levels, with the king-bedded master suite taking pride of place at the top of the villa. This romantic haven includes a double outdoor bathtub, wrap-around terracing with amazing views, and a jacuzzi in the marble ensuite bathroom. Spacious private bathrooms are also a feature of the guest bedrooms, three of which are furnished with king-size beds and one with twin beds. Bedrooms 4 and 5 can be conveniently connected via an internal door to form a family suite if needed.
A team of full-time staff including a villa manager and a talented Thai chef offer friendly, impeccable service tailored to each guest’s needs. Beyond the villa, the beaches of Patong and Kamala are just a 20-minute drive away, and many of Phuket’s leisure, dining and nightlife delights are within easy reach.
