This sweet retreat by MAPS Design is, simply put, unreal! Located in Koh Samui, Thailand, W Retreat and Residences is an oasis of 70 boutique luxury villas and 17 private beach homes, all enjoying this secluded paradise surrounded by blue skies and sea stretching as far as the eye can see.
These resort style homes make the most of the mind blowing views by incorporating lots of outdoor entertaining areas linked by covered walkways. The homes themselves feature open air decks and balconies accessed through floor to ceiling glass walls, which open to offer residents and guests unobstructed private panoramas.
Even interiors boast ever present views of the waterfront, which is never more than a few steps away.
In spite of its simple, beachy "back to nature" setting and style, these island home designs are surprisingly modern, but with that exotic splash of Tiki chic.
Vibrant colors catch the eye at every turn, whether they come from nature or man, such as the contemporary lighting and illuminated furniture that casts different living and lounging spaces in a rainbow of funky hues.
Singapore and Bangkok based MAPS Design has projects in 60 cities across 20 different countries, bringing their exotic flavor of architecture and design around the world. Check out more of their work by visiting MAPS Design.
