Talay Sawan have contracted the entire construction works to Phuket Taksin Construction Co. Ltd who have carried out major Hotel construction projects to the highest standards throughout Thailand. They are providing a ten year structural guarantee on every Villa in the Talay Sawan project.
The foundations are reinforced concrete piles to a depth of seven metres, reinforced concrete beams supporting mass concrete floors on both levels. The external walls are double block and plaster render finish.
The Thai style roof is constructed of galvanised steel fully insulated and bearing hand crafted glazed clay tiles. The entire Teak hardwood décor of each roof has been hand constructed in the contractors own factory in Phuket where it has been carefully hand turned, moulded and polished in order to display Thailand’s finest workmanship and the results can been seen immediately on the “Nao Jaos” at the highest point of each Villa.
The directors of Talay Sawan also contracted architects from Phuket, Damask Design (Thailand) Ltd to design the entire project from conception to final luxurious interiors. Damask have previously worked on many five star hotel projects and high-end Villas in Phuket and the Talay Sawan project is the first time that their standards have been brought to the Eastern Seaboard.
A walk through the show villa
On entering the Villa through the gilded gated entrance the infinity swimming pool is immediately in front of you. On crossing the white sandstone steps of the Lotus pond you arrive up to the Terracotta outdoor pool deck with its white sandstone surround and white grouting. The outdoor decking is partially shaded by the Thai style roof which has been dressed in Macca wood. The large swimming pool itself has been decorated with a hand made ocean blue glazed tile, again with a white sandstone surrounding. This area also incorporates an outdoor shower for use between swimming and sunbathing.
The outdoor Sala is constructed from the same materials as the Villa and reflects the roof of the Villa. The entire interior of the Sala has been handmade in Macca wood to blend both the external and internal living areas into one and is gracefully set out as on outdoor day bed complete with silk netting. The adjoining Garage which is accessed through the remotely controlled door has a sand wash floor and leads to the tiled lock-up storeroom and pump room. The pool decks and garage areas are surrounded by lush vegetation and beautiful water.

The stairs to the first floor while being mass concrete are covered in Macca wood and Macca Handrail. Half way up the staircase is a feature 3.5 metre window before reaching the first floor landing. Again all the first floor flooring is the polished Macca wood. The landing leads to a plastered and painted Study room with recessed lighting and air-conditioning.
The Master bedroom is entered through an extra wide handmade Macca wooden door opening into a private seated area with plastered ceiling leading the 3.5 metre vaulted ceiling with copper light fittings fan and air conditioning.
