Chom Tawan comprises of just 12 individual luxury villas and 6 luxury apartment buildings just 200m from the beach at Bang Tao bay. The southern and western boundaries are formed by the Banyan Tree Resort and Maan Tawan, while the northern and eastern boundaries are formed by the jade-green tidal river.
The architectural character of Chom Tawan is a seductive blend of contemporary Asian and Balinese elements that are combined to create truly practical tropical homes areas that exude elegance, simplicity, and comfort.
The villas are composed of three integrated elements namely internal space, substantial covered open space and outdoor space. Internal space is enhanced by high ceilings and large windows with dual aspects and the transition between inside and outside is provided by the covered open space.
This gives each villa a distinctive “outdoor” feel, while ensuring protection from the rain and sun at all times. These are intimate homes for relaxing, entertaining and enjoying the very best of tropical life with family and friends.
The villas provide a variety of views from internal spaces circulating through each part of the residence out into courtyards, the pool area and for selected plots, over 25 metres of direct river frontage.
The use of timber shingles on the roofs provides a softer appearance and the material colours and tropical planting provide the texture and drama for the whole development.
Separated from the villas, the apartment residences differ in orientation and height to take advantage of stunning sea views over Bang Tao beach to the west or hillside views to the north and east. Extensive surrounding common areas are landscaped to provide privacy to ground floor apartments and amenity space for all residents, including a resort style communal pool, landscaped grounds, ornamental lakes and covered parking.
The external design of the apartment residences compliments the villas yet to create a natural synergy between the two property types. Each level of the apartment block features two apartments, surrounded by extensive balcony and terrace areas providing ample covered open space for sun bathing and dinning. Featuring a generously proportioned, urban-style internal layout the generous usable space provides for an impressive residential layout.
The Chom Tawan Villa
These substantial 4 bedroom pool villas are a modern interpretation of the clustered pavilion design found all over Asia where undercover outdoor spaces and doors on opposing elevations are used to promote a continuous flow of breeze and light into all parts of the building.
Principal rooms are generously proportioned and superbly fitted out, featuring built-in furniture, elegant vaulted ceilings and lavish use of hardwood flooring materials.
Approached through a formal garden, an impressive entrance lobby leads past a large study with attached bathroom (possibly a 5th bedroom or entertainment room) with delightful dual aspects looking out over two garden areas. The dining room enjoys a vaulted ceiling and dual-aspect views out to the water feature garden and the side garden. The living room is a linked pavilion, with a high ceiling and superb aspects onto the pool, sala and the gardens to the rear. It is accessed from the huge covered main terrace, which creates a wonderful outdoor shaded area adjacent to the pool.
The luxurious kitchen boasts a fully fitted European kitchen from ‘Poggenpohl’ with integral appliances. Conveniently located at the rear of the villa are the utility room and the maids accommodation.
The first floor boasts two elegantly designed master bedroom suites with private terraces and two further double bedrooms, all with private dressing areas and en-suite bathrooms. Situated on opposite corners of the 38m2 upper floor garden terraces, this arrangement offers maximum privacy yet allows children’s bedrooms to be accessed easily from parents bedrooms.
A covered carport for two cars, pool sala, pool shower and WC and ample storage space are also provided.
The Chom Tawan Apartment
The 3 bedroom apartments are located within their own community, 6 lowrise apartment residences are arranged to take advantage of superb views to the west coast beach of Bang Tao or hillside views to the North and East. Surrounding common areas are expansive and landscaped to provide privacy to ground floor apartments and amenity space for all residents, including a resort style communal pool, ornamental lakes and covered parking.
Set just 200 metres back from the beach, the apartments enjoythe sound, fresh breezes and the smell of the sea which is only a 3 minute walk away.
With a rare and refreshing floor plan, high quality interior designs and facilities, including an elevator, these are comfortable residential apartments to be lived in and enjoyed all year round – a real home from home rather than the typical “resort holiday” style apartments that most developers offer.
Each floor has only two apartments, with wrap-around private covered terraces providing ample covered open space for sun bathing and outdoor dining. Each apartment measures over 246 m2, with an impressive master bedroom suite, two further en-suite bedrooms and a guest WC.
High ceilings and windows all contribute to a feeling of spaciousness and give the 42 m2 living/dining room a true air of extravagance. A full size open-plan kitchen with built-in ‘Poggenpohl’ kitchen from Europe and a dedicated utility area make these real homes from home that can be enjoyed all year round.
