Malouna Villas by Sicart & Smith Architects is an exclusive resort on the north coast of Koh Samui island in Bang Po, Thailand. Set on a quiet part of beautiful Laem Noi Beach, the project boasts 147 feet of pristine beach frontage and views of the neighboring island of Koh Phangan.

The eco-friendly villas accommodate seven bedrooms (with 23 beds), spread around a central garden and making the most of Samui’s climate, views and light.

White blocks and dark teak timber were used as finishing materials for the buildings. The architects paid special attention to the tropical climate; all roofs have large overhangs with fixed louvers to protect the façades from the sun.

The villas have minimalist furnishings and were designed for indoor-outdoor living. The living rooms are open on three sides, allowing the gentle sea breezes to cool the space. This exclusive resort just might be the ultimate place for relaxation. [Photos and information provided by Sicart & Smith Architects]
