Although most properties are labelled with numbers to signify the location, this superb abode is simply named “Spirit of Asia”. The name itself exudes a certain charm that rarely graces the property market in Phuket, while daring to offer a unique character true to its name.
Once traversing the lofty slope towards the house you will be greeted by a plethora of artworks, statues and sculptures straight from the annuls of history and time, such as a solid stone Dharma Wheel and choice Khmer treasures that date back from the 9th to the 13th century. The miscellaneous object d'art are not items systematically purchased from the local market, but inspiring works chosen with love, care and attention to detail in-mind. This house is akin to a living art gallery that oozes class in huge measures and you can't help but feel moved by the ambiance of the surroundings.
Making your way through the entrance, you encounter the reception and conference area which incorporates a covered terrace that offers many seated options to sit back and enjoy the views whilst strategically placed lighting illuminates the area after nightfall and creates a moorish and soothing ambiance.

The second garden is an even quieter affair situated at the rear of the property, guarded by massive trees that offer the utmost in seclusion and shade from the elements. The third garden is situated at the side of the house within close proximity to the study/office, and is probably offers the most privacy of the three.
From the reception area, you can walk by an impressive waterfall and down the cobbled steps to the ‘wellness area' that comprises a 30sqm swimming pool, a gymnasium and a sauna against a backdrop of the waterfall and the lily pond with fountains.
