[Special Advertising Feature] The essence of Wild Cottages Luxury and Natural by You Chill, We Work is seamlessly captured in its name; gorgeous one-bedroom bungalow villas with sea views, beach access, private salt-filtration pools, along with open bathrooms, a big terrace, and a five-star concierge service on Thailand’s stunning Koh Samui.
A vacation villa rental specialists who set up on the Gulf of Thailand in 2011, the developer brings a strong dose of hospitality experience to the project aimed at the holiday-home market.
The 30-year renewable lease properties attracted attention at the 14th annual PropertyGuru Thailand Property Awards in August 2019 with two wins: Best Resort Housing Development (Samui) and Best Housing Interior Design. A highly commended was also achieved in the Best Housing Landscape Architectural Design category.
The residences, measuring 88 square metres, are perfectly located in Lamai on the eastern side of the island, surrounded by greenery. The second-largest resort area on Samui, just a few kilometres from the biggest, high-energy Chaweng, Lamai is far quieter.
The cottages are just 500 metres from the beach and the same distance from the main road, shops, and restaurants, plus priority access to WeGreen cultural park, which is a vegetable farm and restaurant tourist attraction.
Complementing the richly verdant environment, the project seems to be part of the natural landscape, with a thatched room design adding to this intention. The six single-storey residences are elevated and feature a salt-filtration infinity pool, with a waterfall feature that falls down to a water trough below, adding an attractive quality to the façade.
From the architecture to the layout, the way in which the development responds to its coastal setting of tropical greenery impressed this year’s judges.
“The natural, beachy style of Wild Cottages Luxury and Natural is wonderfully laid-back with a back-to-nature design influence that reflects the You Chill, We Work intention to present soothing minimalist interiors with ergonomic designs and mindfully presented furnishings; perfect for open-plan Koh Samui villas experiences.”
The bedroom and bathroom are presented in one large space, fully opening out to the private pool, as well as a stunning wooden deck with lounge furnishings. The free-standing tub creates a bathroom with an outstanding view like all the cottages lookout to the sea.
Meanwhile, natural hues, wooden design elements, and clean, crisp whites inspire a simple, breezy ambiance perfect for the vacation lifestyle. Each property boasts a walk-in shower, separate water closet, and a fully equipped kitchen with top-of-the-line appliances, including a SMEG refrigerator and a Nespresso machine. The entertainment system is also advanced, with the latest audio equipment, connectivity, smart TV, and a station for devices.
Aside from being immersed in lush vegetation, the project embraces an eco-friendly approach with waste sorting, rainwater collection, and low electricity consumption.
What really enhances the spaces is the excellent service quality offered to residents, such as private airport transfers and a private chauffeur to the beach. A private chef can deliver breakfast, lunch, and dinner to individual homes, while tours and activities can also be arranged.
Residents can benefit from newspaper delivery and a restaurant reservation system, with promotions offered for different eateries. Massage and spa treatments are available too, as are car, scooter, and boat rentals.
You Chill, We Work has thought of everything, with bathrobes, a beach bag, and even sarongs and hats included in the Wild Cottages Luxury and Natural experience.
