Tropical living outdoors

What’s a sala? Somewhere you definitely want to spend lazy days.

A sala is a Thai word for an outdoor room, small building or platform – covered with a roof to provide shade. Our sala sits poolside and is big enough for a family meal, enjoying sunset cocktails or a memorable Monopoly game.

Villa in Thailand: The Pool on the Hill's sala is a great place to relax, spend time together and enjoy's ocean views of Koh Samui and Koh Phangan

Why you’ll love spending time in the sala:

  • You get extensive ocean views along Koh Samui’s coastline all the way to Koh Phangan

  • Read books in it, take long naps, or start writing your life story

  • Or, just look across to the small island of Koh Som, contemplating world peace

We think this might be our favourite spot in the whole house. Or is it the kitchen? Can’t decide...

Outdoor living room

Thai villa: The Pool on the Hill's outdoor living room features tropical plants and shaded seating on two couches and a Balinese day-bed

Enjoy tons of tropical outdoor space: sunshine when you want it, and lots of shade for naps (and sissies). A few steps down from the pool’s deep end you’ll find yet another space to hang out – an area we’ve given the very original name “outdoor living room”.

Shade when you want it

Thailand villa rental: The Pool on the Hill's outdoor living room is just off the second master bedroom

This space is in glorious shade until the very late afternoon. Two bedrooms (the second master suite and bedroom five), adjoin this outdoor space so it’s a great communal spot for a smaller group or the whole team.

A pair of outdoor couches and an immense antique Balinese daybed can fit all ten guests at once or – if you’re like us – three adults playing 'Exploding Kittens' with near-rabid intensity.

Outdoor music

As on the upper terrace, outdoor speakers will gladly play from any Bluetooth device (if that sounds confusing, it isn’t – we road-tested our instructions sheet on a 70-year-old technophobe). Soundtrack suggestion: If you, as well, plan to play 'Exploding Kittens' … you’ll find that 'Eye of the Tiger' is a suitable soundtrack. These downstairs speakers are on a separate system to those upstairs – so no parent has to suffer their teenagers’ “music” (or vice versa).
