Created by renowned Thai architect Duangrit Bunnag, the five-bedroom villa exemplifies the "outside living in" concept. Situated adjacent to the Aleenta Phuket resort, the villa is made of six distinctive structures that offer a harmonious sense of flow and uninterrupted sea views. Each combines extensive space, floor-to-ceiling glass walls, and a clever juxtaposition of strong architectural lines against the lush nature surrounding the villa. It's comfortable for families or groups of friends with each bedroom featuring a private en-suite bathroom, luxurious furniture and custom interiors. Visit www.Aleenta.com/phuket.
