The compact island of Koh Samui is perhaps no stranger to savvy travellers, but you’ve not seen panoramic views like this.

Part of the Luxury Nomad collection, Baan View Talay is aptly named for its stunning vista: It’s perched high on the hills above Nathon, the bustling western seat of the island’s municipal town centre. From this northwestern corner of Samui, the six-bedroom villa offers a sweeping bird’s eye view over the island, where you can almost see the entire stretch of Samui from coast to coast.

Sure to be a spectacular sight for sore eyes after being cooped up in the city centre for so long, Baan View Talay is ideal for special getaway for couples, families or a small group of friends. The private villa features six bedrooms and a mezzanine, comfortably accommodating up to seven pairs.

Boasting modern surrounds with teakwood floors, full-length windows and an open-air vibe, Baan View Talay allows for every second for you to savour the view overlooking Phangan Bay — whether during breakfasts, lunches and dinners, sunset cocktails, or even over a short game of pétanque, badminton or a round of practise putting — the sprawling grounds of Baan View Talay features such unique sporting facilities rarely seen elsewhere.

That’s even before mentioning the sparkling infinity pool, which seemingly melts into the cobalt horizon. Even for those who prefer to admire the sun safely from under the shade, there’s plenty of indoor diversions to be found: from perfecting your pocket shot at the pool table to beating your friends at foosball; indulging in Thai or international cuisine cooked up by your private chef to working off all the calories at the gym; or even exploring the expansive in-villa wine collection. Spa aficionados will no doubt spend plenty of time in the spacious ensuite bathrooms — fully equipped with deep soaking jacuzzis. In-villa treatments are also at your disposal, at an additional cost.
