Located in a quiet sub-soi (small road) in its own secure compound, this unique hexagon shaped house with its four extending wings gets its name, Baan Wat (lit. temple house), from the sweeping, traditional temple-style roofs atop both the main and caretakers buildings.
One can’t help but feel the stresses and strain of the world melt away, replaced by a feeling of peace and tranquility, the moment the remote-controlled front gate slides open to reveal the main two-story building set under the shade of towering palms, mature mango trees, and flowering Thai orchids.
The traditional Balinese teak door with intricate gold embossed wooden fretwork side panels opens onto the capacious central, circular-shaped slate floor entrance with the feeling of openness and space added to by the towering, cathedral-like pyramid ceiling.
This feeling of spaciousness is enhanced by the four wings extending out from the main entrance foyer. In catering to the needs of people with disabilities, one of the ground floor wings contains a spacious bedroom leading to a luxurious en suite bathroom with separate shower and bath facilities, and a separate walk-in dressing area with inbuilt teak wardrobes.
In another of the wings extending from the entrance foyer is the spacious, open-plan kitchen – and what a kitchen it is. This is a kitchen that can easily turn out quick snacks to be eaten at the casual dining setting or, under the control of a skilled cook, capable of turning out any meal imaginable, or cater for large numbers of guests.
The marble topped benches provide ample preparation space, while the island cooktop features gas and electric hotplates, an effective exhaust hood guaranteeing cooking smells are quickly and efficiently exhausted outside, and a full-size oven.
Just a short walk away is the formal dining room, the focal point of which is a large antique teak wood dining table with seating for 12, with expansive views one way to the inviting in-ground pool and the shady, private garden the other.
Complete with its own refrigerated drinks cabinet, bar and fully equipped washroom, the dining room oozes space and charm and is the perfect setting for long, multi-course meals and lengthy mealtime conversations.
The fourth ground floor wing houses the living room, equipped with comfortable over-stuffed lounge chairs and sofas providing views of the shady front garden one way and the crystal-clear in-ground swimming pool to the other, while a 42-inch plasma TV, CD/DVD entertainment system, cable TV decoder and sound-system speakers cater to your entertainment needs.
Deep brownish-orange terracotta tiles are used with great effect to contrast with the rich teak balustrade and balusters leading to the first floor, with four wings branching off from the circular walkway.
While each of the upper floor bedrooms is as spacious and impressive as the other, it is the master suite with its oversize 7’ x 7’ (about 213 x 213cm) four-poster island bed, complete with white linen curtains that can’t but impress the most.
Each of the four upstairs bedrooms feature one of the four different styles of parquet flooring possible, and all lead to luxurious en suite bathrooms with glass-walled showers, separate bath tubs and luxurious marble wash tables. For the person or people lucky enough to occupy the master suite, the bathroom also contains a large, two person spa-tub.
Naturally all rooms on the top and bottom floors are individually air-conditioned, and all bedrooms are equipped with large-screen televisions, cable access, CD/DVD players, and entertainment system speakers.
A fully equipped laundry complete with a large modern automatic washing machine and tumble dryer, building-wide hi-speed wireless internet, ceiling fans in each room, tasteful up and down mood lighting, fully screened and quality fabric curtained windows, and modern security system compliment the rest of the luxurious features and high-quality materials used throughout the house.
For guests who don’t wish to make the 10-minute walk to the clear water and white-sand at Wong Amat Beach, the in-ground crystal clear swimming pool located between the dining and living room, with its paved terrace and striking waterfall and fresh water wash-off shower, is the perfect solution.
The pool, lawns and gardens, along with general cleaning and security are all taken care of by two Western trained staff who live onsite in their own private, detached accommodation, ensuring the extensive grounds and swimming pool are maintained to the highest possible levels.
While the onsite staff will prepare meals and wash laundry for an additional fee, just a few minutes’ walk away guests will find a range of restaurants providing Japanese, Russian, Thai and Swiss meals, in addition to numerous bars, restaurants and entertainment venues at the nearby 5-star Lost World themed resort.
Other facilities just a few minutes’ walk away include ATMs, 24-hour mini-markets, spas and salons, as well as a stop on the baht bus route providing efficient and cheap travel into the heart of Pattaya.
