Beach In Ten Villas in Laem Set, Koh Samui, Thailand

If being near the sea is a holiday ‘must have’, but walking into your bedroom with sand between your toes isn’t, these villas are less than 10 minutes drive from the beach - many within the soothing sound of the surf. (If you have to be right on the sand then try our Beachfront villas.)

Shiva Samui Resort - Baan Chanchai

Shiva Samui Resort - Baan Chanchai

Thailand » Koh Samui » Laem Set

Arriving at Shiva Samui Resort on a very hot day, we were met by friendly guest service staff who escorted us to Baan Chanchai and its inviting swimming pool.  Eager to see what the estate had to offer, we strolled the 100m to the beach after a refreshing swim and were stopped in our tracks by the view – a white sandy beach, vivid blue of the shallow sea, and a bright blue sky with wispy white clouds.  But punctuating the scene were dashes of colour from the kite surfers’ catching the breeze.  Lower down, someone was gently paddling a duck-yellow kayak along the shore, and further yet, a local fisherman was stringing up nets.  It’s hard to ignore a view like this, and we wanted nothing more than to be a part of it, so before even unpacking our bags we were enquiring about kite surfing lessons.

We found ourselves torn between wanting to make the most of all Shiva Samui Resort has to offer, and just relaxing and enjoying the sea breeze by the pool.  The solution: to wake early, head to the gym or for a sunrise run on the beach, and then relax by the pool.  When the kids get restless, the kids’ club comes in handy and mum can book a spa treatment at the same time.  For the energetic, you’ll find plenty of country roads to explore by mountain bike, as this is the quieter side of the island.  Or, perhaps a friendly tennis challenge will work off some energy before another dip in the pool.

Come evening time, the Clubhouse Restaurant is festive, with live music on some evenings, happy hour and a games room with pool and table tennis.  We were lucky enough to stay on a Monday night, when the à la carte menu is replaced by a Thai buffet.  The tasty spread was well presented and offered a good selection.  Thursday evenings present a barbecue buffet for another change from the usual menu.  We were equally impressed by the selection on offer at the breakfast buffet, a great way to start the day.

Although the villa is small, we found it perfect for our little group (two adults and two kids) and enjoyed the outdoor living spaces, comfortable beds and rain showers.
