LANGKAWI ISLAND - Pandangan Villas


This project is unique to Langkawi and has been planned inline with the Malaysian Government 'Second Home' scheme attracting foreign residents. The properties are all Freehold and suit either permanent living and/or private rental.

The Plot The land follows the natural incline of the valley down towards the bay, offering every Villa its own clear view of the Andaman Sea and rainforest covered islands. The Villas sit within their own large, landscaped plot of approximately 850sqm, guaranteeing privacy and seclusion to enjoy the benefits of the outdoor living features of the architectural design.

We Offer 3/4 Bedroom Options

Internal living Area The main living and dining area provides an elegant and tranquil setting to entertain, read a book or just relax. A dominance of natural materials and traditional roofing, give a distinctive blend of past and present. The modern kitchen is well equipped and conveniently located to serve both the dining area and the poolside. Sliding asian style walls open up the living area into the adjoining poolside terrace to create a cool, ventilated free flowing space.

External living Area The central L-shaped pool of over 80sqm is the principal feature of the external living area. Designed to accommodate a large family and friends in comfort, the poolside seating area, shady covered walkway and end terrace give a host of options for enjoying this space to the full.

Bedrooms The bedroom living areas have all been designed to create a feeling of space, light and cool temperatures. Asian design and European comfort combine in harmony throughout . The walk-in wardrobes link the sleeping area to the beautifully integrated bathrooms. The large master bedroom as you would expect, enjoys the best location and views. A spacious walk-in wardrobe separates the bedroom from the impressive 5 Star luxury bathroom.
