Upni Duniya sits right on the beach in Bang Rak, overlooking the famous Big Buddha statue on Samui's northern shore. This expansive, high-end villa is designed to the highest specifications and known as a place where '"heaven embraces the earth".
Furnished to the best possible standards and laced with Asian art and inspiration, Upni Duniya comprises four enchanting villas, 4 well-appointed suites and the super-exclusive Villa Number 9, an inspired luxury home within a home.
The architectural symmetry at Upni Duniya exudes a sense of harmony and balance, moving energy and outside influences from a carefully planned street side fortress to the peaceful shoreline. The beachfront infinity pool literally pours down to the sea emphasizing the notion of a private space that meets the public domain. True to its original culture and location, yet blending traditional features with the latest in modern facilities, the villa's stand-alone buildings are filled with ancient artifacts that share space with the latest technology and luxury amenities. Wired for sound, light and communication, this property represents the ultimate union between the past and the future.
The four private villas are colour-themed in red, white, green and gold. Each one was specifically designed to display its own unique personality, from the fittings and decorations right through to the exquisite furnishings and state-of-the-art personal entertainment systems. Brand name imported furnishings, including Nahm bathroom suites, Denon music systems and top of the range lighting technology guarantees a total ease and comfort.
The 4 first floor suites exude an eclectic sense of style, offering all who stay in them an adventure for the senses with fabulous views across the verdant grounds of the estate to the serene waters of Big Buddha Bay.
Villa Nine offers special guests new levels of elegant comfort. The detailed aesthetics, fine materials, splashes of ancient of art and soothing colour scheme combine to make every element of this the villa extravagant, private and sensual. Hand-painted antique doors stand as the threshold to the future. As you walk through them you enter a sanctuary of modern pleasures encircled by antiquity and nature, the boundaries blurred by glass framed exteriors that slide open to welcome the outside in.
Ease away life's daily strain in the open-air Jacuzzi, slip into the cool infinity pool or drift into the reverie of a private massage, all just steps from the soft Samui sands. The signature Sala Thai invites you to relax on your personal, private island, suspended in the water of the pool. Recline on soft cushions and gaze at the sunset, drinking in the view to the soundtrack of the sea, live the beach life, breath in the sea air and experience complete release.
The contemporary, minimalist designs at Upni Duniya mean style without compromise and create the ultimate vacation environment, answering your questions before they're asked, meeting your needs in advance of a request. The professional villa management team and 24 hour concierge guarantees first class hospitality with a 'never say no' approach to service, whilst a stunning tropical backdrop not only provides the ideal setting for a private retreat, but also embodies the perfect venue for special events, celebrations and gatherings.
A tree lined passage leads to the sea, illuminated from beneath and decorated with palms and tropical flora. Surrounded yourself in green as you look out over the big blue. Let the spacious grounds delight your senses by day. Then at night, delight in ambient lighting that creates a dramatic contrast and highlights the contours of the carefully crafted private landscape.
