The Plantation is a striking Mediterranean style condominium situated on a large hill overlooking the Andaman Sea. The apartment is large (240 sqm), sunny and bright. The glass sliding doors to the wide verandah disappear into wall pockets, creating a sense of openness and space. There are two bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms and a third with attached half bath that also serves as a study. There are many closets and storage areas. The open plan living room, dining room and kitchen, all enable a view of the sea, as do the bedrooms. The apartment is furnished with stylish modern furniture and a large leather recliner. Internet/wi-fi, flat screen digital TV with optional cable subscription, dvd player with a collection of cd's/dvd's, board games and books provide diverse entertainment. The wide terrace is partially shaded and partially open to the sky for maximum enjoyment, rain or shine. It is ideal for reading or a nap or getting a suntan, watching the sky change colors at sunset, or simply star-gazing at night. It is safe for toddlers and children of all ages. The kitchen is equipped with electric range, microwave oven, toaster, coffee maker' dishwasher and refrigerator. There is a separate laundry room with a washer and a dryer, and two store rooms. The open air alcove next to the master bedroom has a large soak tub with hot and cold water. All rooms are independently air-conditioned and the main bedrooms have built-in wardrobes.
The Plantation is tastefully landscaped and meticulously maintained by a top international property management company. High up the hill, the common area is exclusively enjoyed in privacy by the residents. The facilities include a long swimming pool ideal for laps, a gym with state of the art equipment, a library/lounge with wi-fi, and an enormous deck. There are three â€œsalasâ€? (gazebos) near the pool for socializing and exercise. There is ample covered parking space and 24-hour security.
The condominium is located a kilometer from the small town of Kamala, a 10-15 minute walk. There is a small walking beach just below the apartment and a large swimming beach at Kamala town. The tourist towns and other beaches are minutes away by car. There are numerous restaurants, stores, banks and other facilities along the beach and in the quiet Kamala village within walking distance.
