The Thai people have the gift of endowing ordinary everyday life with beauty, drawing upon the natural resources around them. A simple bowl of water may be adorned with rose petals, the sound of the wind harnessed in a wind chime.
Part of the exclusive Dhevatara Residence, Baan Leelawadee is a luxurious beach front property with accommodation distributed throughout separate pavilions where entire walls disappear to allow light and air to circulate freely, and where the boundaries between beach life and villa life blur pleasingly. The property is a fine example of contemporary Thai architecture, with high vaulted roofs, immense windows that fold away, hardwood floors and natural materials used simply and unostentatiously. The double beds are draped with white curtains as tradition demands, but the bathroom facilities are as up to date as anyone could ask for, as are the kitchen and the entertainment accessories. Landscaped gardens and lawns meander between the pavilions and culminate in a beautiful private swimming pool; a roofed sala provides a quiet spot from which to gaze out over the sea to Big Buddha and Koh Phangan islands. A few steps lead on to the pale golden sand of the immaculate beach that is so quiet it could almost be private. Peaceful and secluded as the property is, it is by no means isolated, with shops, restaurants and golf all within easy reach. The services of a Thai chef are provided, and massage and spa treatments at the villa can be arranged for guests by the Villa Manager
