The stunning vistas are one of Villa Mullion Cove’s most memorable features
The pleasant approach to Villa Mullion Cove is infused with almost as much visual splendour as the property itself. A quiet tree-lined road leads up to the property, where a shady drive is decorated with tropical flora and fauna. Guests are promptly welcomed by the villa’s friendly team of staff and on stepping into the property, one of its chief attractions is immediately revealed. With a position that makes the most of the stunning blue ocean vistas, clever designs ensure the Gulf of Siam welcomes guests from the second they step into the light-flooded entrance lobby. With a welcome drink in hand, they are then free to soak up the splendid views that will dazzle and delight for the duration of the stay.
The homely living area is the perfect place to relax at Villa Mullion Cove
After a refreshing drink and perhaps even a quick nap, the villa manager offers a tour of the property and its expansive grounds. Architecturally, the villa is carefully carved into the side of a sloping hilltop in order to make the most of the dramatic seascape views. This means that accommodation is spread across several storeys, with gorgeous indoor and outdoor living spaces greeting guests around every corner or at the foot of every staircase.
Expansive glazed elements have been incorporated throughout the villa, so the sublime ocean backdrop is a constant presence. In addition, the generous sky garden at Villa Mullion Cove adds a comforting sense of private privilege.
Characterful wooden floors and ceilings contrast with crisp white walls

A mix of traditional and contemporary styling gives this part of the property an eye-catching allure, and the adjoining ensuite – which houses twin sinks, a walk-in shower and terrazzo bathtub – does not disappoint. An outdoor terrace links the upper level to a staircase leading down to the main living area. This generously-proportioned open plan interiors are subtly divided into different zones, including a library-study area, a lounge and dining area. The chic, fully fitted kitchen is also on this level of the property. Two more bedrooms are set in their own private pavilions and easily accessed from the lounge and pool area.
