Samudra is set on a six-rai forested headland overlooking a picturesque lagoon on a sandy boulder-studded beach bordered by coral reefs and with year-round swimming; it boasts 180 metres of beach frontage and is quite unique with historic appeal.
When you arrive at Samudra stepping stones meander through the lush tropical grounds, past frangipani trees and their subtle perfume, and let you uncover several unique pavilions, each with antique windows and doors and serving a purpose during your holiday.
THE BEACH MASTER SUITE
Accessible from the poolside stairs or the oceanfront pathway from the yoga Sala and Octagon temple, you reach the unspoilt grounds of the Beach Master Suite that offers incredible views from its immaculately kept terrace lawns.
The Beach Master Suite is cleverly designed around the rock formations that are a feature of the bedroom with a comfortable living and sleeping area. A ventilation chute rises out of the rear of the suite creating a natural airflow and sliding pocket doors open the room up for outdoor style living. The room features a high definition projector with a large screen should you ever wish to take your eyes off the spectacular view. The bathroom is elegant with a large natural stone standing at the backdrop of the shower while terrazzo was the material of choice to complement the simplicity of the intended design and mood.
THE OCTAGON TEMPLE
The main entrance, with its solid wooden Chinese antique doors, surrounded by lush tropical plants and crowned with a lamp disguised by stunning Spanish moss, gives the first hint that something very special and unique lies ahead.
The floors of the pavilion have been strategically built around the granite boulder laden grounds, with the roof shingles being recycled 100-year-old teak from the north of Thailand.
Within this pavilion is a large bedroom boasting a refined mixture of antique, oriental treasures and modern convenience. The vaulted ceiling, with its heavy Takian wood beams, gives a feeling of times gone by. The room is lit with unique lamps that have been crafted from Chinese lanterns that hang from the ceiling. The room is cooled by both ceiling fans and air-conditioning.
THE BALI TEMPLE
Enter Bali Temple and you will be rewarded with the view of the pool, garden, beach and ocean. The blue Balinese tiles of the stone-studded pool floor add uncanny resemblance to the waters of the pool and the blue of the sea, blurring the boundary between the two.
The living area is charmingly furnished and decorated and has plenty of rustic appeal. The carefully designed rooms are built into the land, and fold open to draw in the sea breezes and the equally stunning views. Antique Chinese doors and windows, reclaimed teak wooden floors, and intricate, Balinese carved wood walls transport you to another era, while modern comforts such as air-conditioning, WiFi, and HD entertainment systems provide the perfect atmosphere to rejuvenate, relax and bond with your loved ones.
THE TREE HOUSE
On the upper part of the land sits the Treehouse, a two-bedroom pavilion with its own kitchen and covered deck, comfortably sitting amongst the trees and overlooking the rest of the villa. The deck is the perfect place to take in the incredible views of the immaculately kept garden with its wide variety of tropical plants, and frangipani trees and their subtle perfume. Both bedrooms in the treehouse have en-suite bathroom, one has a double bed and the other 2 single beds.
Their wooden floor creates warmth and the large stone slabs remind of the closeness to nature that Samudra wants to bring. One bedroom has an indoor en-suite bathroom with shower and the second bedroom opens onto the outdoor bathroom with a shower set amongst the tropical garden.
