Mandalay Beach Villas provide an impressive, cutting edge visual experience. The architects have introduced a distinctive and cohesive design aesthetic across the seven three bedroom luxury villas. Mandalay Beach Villas are an impressive balance between form and function, inside and out, modern and tropical. The rectangular forms and vertical fins that articulate the building’s façade offer residents privacy and frame views over the white sand beach. Beyond the façade lies a lush tropical garden that provides natural light and a private place to relax. The visitor enters through the back side of the building. The design concept focused on establishing additional open air spaces so as to create a pleasant habitat in the plot. Thus, the pond in the entry of the plot separates the common use areas from the more secluded spaces thus creating the essential privacy.

“Connecting Spaces”
The characteristic element of the floor plan which was developed on the basis of the proportions of the human body, is the minimization of corridors and the enhancement of the fluid motion of the individual volumes of the building. As a result, in the Living Area which communicates naturally and visually with the surrounding space, we have the welcoming / community spaces (living room, breakfast bar, dining room, kitchen) which through large interior and exterior openings utilize all natural light to the largest extent, while at the same time they appear to complement the outdoor / open spaces since they are directly connected.The right side of the Living Area is a massive rock wall, while the left side opening in the living area works to connect the ‘public’ and ‘private’ spaces of the residence over the stepping stones. The three bedrooms with balconies without railings and transparent glass for maximization of the view. The Master Bedroom has infinite view and a vast veranda. The back side comprises of additional secondary ‘functional rooms’ as well as the maid room.

Interior Design
“The simplest appearance often belies the most complex thinking. Thin worktops, matt and glossy surfaces, floating elements, and purity of lines combine to refine the visual experience.”

Sunlight streams into the Mandalay Beach Villas through full height windows and reflects off the high ceilings to give a sense of openness and space. The architects have ensured each villa is oriented to its best vantage point. The heart of each
villa is the spacious open plan living area where the kitchen, dining room and lounge form one integrated space for entertaining or relaxing. Bright and awash with light, this space offers residents the ultimate in flexibility and style. The sleek contemporary kitchen segues effortlessly across an island bench into the living space. A clean slate for residents to arrange, personalize and express themselves. Perfect for relaxing and winding down or getting together with friends, the space expands with ease by opening the sliding doors to the garden and outside world.When it comes to the bedrooms and accompanying en-suites, it is the richness in the detail that makes them so attractive and appealing.

True to the modernist ideals of simplicity, neutrality and tranquillity, Mandalay Beach Villas interiors are a smart blend of tone, texture and stylish materials. Mandalay Beach Villas’s light option is a warm combination of muted light browns, greys and organic elements that enrich the sense of sanctuary. Terazzo underfoot spells indulgence and luxury, and when combined with bamboo flooring and sandwash floor in the bathrooms provides a seamless visual terrain.

Generously proportioned yet warm, they relect a desire for private retreats with a feeling of tranquillity. Spaces where residents can ease into the day on holidays and return to their busy lives rested, relaxed and rejuvenated.

Mindful of the latest market trends, Mandalay Beach Villa’s three-bedroom villas offer en-suite dual bathrooms, making them supremely private and convenient for residents, and ultimately more desirable for investors.

The combined design of the mechanical elements of the utilities and equipment so as not to interfere visually or sound wise with the overall architectural composition of the building, assisted in meeting this end. The leading edge technology in the kitchen including the stovetop, oven and integrated dishwasher, is sleek and timeless.

It is constructed in accordance with the specifications of a smart home where all operations including lighting, the movement of shutters, video surveillance cameras, multi room sound system and air conditioning are all enables remote controlling most cases via iPhone/iPad.
