A contented cat smiles down at kittens, a puppy digs eagerly surrounded by oversized birds and a water fountain with sleek stretching cats are just some of the playful touches that characterize the gardens at the new all-villa Panacea Koh Samui retreat and are all courtesy of the globally renowned designer Bill Bensley.
Named as one of Architectural Digest’s Top 100 ‘Designers and Most Creative People’ Bensley’s originality combined with his trademark humour made him the perfect choice as design partner for this stylish hilltop hideaway.
“We dreamt of beautiful landscaped gardens enhancing the villas and surrounding nature and views, said Creative Director Evgenia Slyusarenko. “Bill Bensley is to us, by far the best in this business. What he creates is clearly out of a fairytale. He brings magic to places. His creativity, love for his work and professionalism are unique.”
At Panacea Koh Samui, Bensley took full advantage of the spectacular setting to position the resort’s five stunning private villas for maximum privacy in indigenously planted gardens created as places to relax with friends, to love and to enjoy. The seamless blend of indoor and outdoor spaces, the exotic planting, and composition of colours and unique aura of calm create environments that cosset the guests in a very singular manner.
Private 25-meters infinity pools as well as all day sala facilities ensure guests can enjoy the natural beauty of their surroundings at all times.
This inspiring style perfectly blends with the visionary concept of Panacea Koh Samui to create something deeply unique in both design and intention, this is a place where everything is as good as it can be.
