Escape into a world of ultimate beauty. Villa Yin fuses bold antiques such as 14th and 15th century Thai Buddhas, and ancient Burmese gongs, with modern works by artists Xiu Ciu Wen, David LaChapelle and Andy Warhol.
The attention to detail is astounding. Sleek materials such as dark hardwood terracing, marble and granite highlight the unique design statements introduced throughout the property: plate glass vanities and shower screens with pebble and bamboo inclusions, iridescent beaded bathtubs and glass stairways.
Villa Yin's five Thai-style pavilions - the entrance, guest, outdoor, main and master pavilions - are all connected by footpaths, but secluded by design. The estate also features a private stairwell from the cliff-edge pool to a natural, shallow swimming enclave in the sea below.
King size bed, air conditioning and fan, ensuite bathroom with double vanity and separate soaker tub shower and toilets, flat screen TV/DVD, cordless phone, indoor massage area, office, walk-in his/hers closet, outdoor hot tub, ocean view and ¾ wraparound deck.
