Ban Mekkala is a
sumptuously specified beachfront villa, designed by renowned architect,
David Clarke. The villa is set within a large and well-planned walled
and landscaped garden, and set on a quiet and secluded beach on the far
south coast of the island, a short stroll away from the landmark Golden
Entered through a huge sliding gate, to a private courtyard with double car port and staff
house, a further gate opens onto a bridge across an ornamental pond with
fountains, leading to the reception room. The vast reception hall
integrates a state-of-the-art kitchen, with a dining area seating 12,
and an extensive lounge area with sofas arranged around a coffee table
and plasma TV with satellite and DVD. Wooden floors and wood-paneled
vaulted ceiling are complemented by Thai art and artifacts. Large glass
doors open onto an immense deck, which is partially covered by the
overhanging roof, with colonial loungers and coffee tables, overlooking
the pool, garden, and sea. Open stairways lead down to the ground floor
from both ends of the upper deck.
Downstairs, 2 adjacent bedrooms are located below the reception room. Approaching the
beach from the main villa, over sandstone stepping stones across the
lawn, two detached en-suite bedroom units are passed on either side of
the property. All of the six bedrooms feature wardrobes, dimmer
controlled halogen lighting, individual safes, and TV, with DVD and
stereo. The generously proportioned air-conditioned double bedrooms each
have large en-suite bathrooms, with free-standing oval terrazzo bath
tubs, separate glass-encapsulated rain showers, and additional outdoor
rain showers in romantic tropical garden settings. Each bedroom features
a deck, with a pair of colonial loungers overlooking the garden and sea.
A private spa is set within a large courtyard adjacent to one of the bedrooms in the main
building. A sandstone deck provides ample of space for massages, and is
flanked by a large water feature with a waterfall into an ornamental
pond, with a sunken Jacuzzi in the centre.
A central pavilion adjacent to the swimming pool includes a dining setting for 14, swim-up
bar, plasma TV screen, and stereo speakers. Stereo is also piped through
most of the open-air areas around the villa. The distinctive pool tiled
in stone tile, and surrounded by a sandstone deck. Sun loungers are
integrated into the pool, providing a floatation effect. A section of
grass lawn beyond the pool runs to the low wall, beyond which the beach
is accessed through a gate. A barbeque and outdoor kitchen area is ideal
for preparing fresh seafood dinner parties in the al-fresco poolside
