Akuvara

Akuvara

Thailand » Koh Samui » Lipa Noi

Akuvara's contemporary design may not be to everyone's taste, but once you settle into the tropical lifestyle on offer you soon appreciate the beauty of keeping things simple.  The clean open spaces suit the environment and technological enhancements like the music and movie hard drive in the living rooms give the villa a distinctive, modern feel.

Initially, we felt the three lounge areas to be excessive, but with kids in tow the option of a separate entertainment room in the evenings definitely appeals, and the upper floor lounge adds a new dimension to sunset cocktails.   

The staff are courteous and try hard to meet every request.  Despite the occasional language barrier they manage to run everything smoothly while remaining unobtrusive and the English-speaking manager ensures the villa runs smoothly and deals with things like tour bookings and restaurant recommendations.

This part of Lipa Noi offers a nice balance between seclusion and diversion.  You can happily spend days doing very little, but a short drive to the other side of the peninsular brings you to some decent resort restaurants, as well as the Nikki Beach Club, which is far more sophisticated a venue than you'd expect to find in such a secluded location.    

In some ways Akuvara felt like two villas in one.  The studio at the rear of the property feels like an independent unit, but would certainly be a useful addition for a full family gathering.  The option to rent the villa without this fourth bedroom, however, makes Akuvara a great choice as a functional but comfortable family getaway.     

If there is such a thing as villa envy then staying at Akuvara may inspire it as the villas close-by are significantly larger and more opulent than this one - but come with a much higher price tag.  Yet despite its compact design, Akuvara still boasts the full range of amenities required to provide a pleasant beachside escape.  Between the pool and the beach you never want for daytime pleasures and lazing in the ocean-front sala with a cool drink and a book must surely rate as one of life's finer moments.

Baan Puri

Baan Puri

Thailand » Koh Samui » Lipa Noi

Our visit to Baan Puri involved two families and the kids had an absolute ball, which meant we did too. Water plays a major role at the villa, with ponds, waterfalls - that huge 30m pool - and the waters of the Gulf of Thailand a constant influence. A particular joy is that, despite the villa's opulence, it remains refreshingly simple and focuses on what matters most during a beach holiday: comfort, privacy and the opportunity to enjoy the location to the full.

The staff were an absolute delight with the villa manager taking the kids under her wing as only the Thai’s know how and a superb chef who could cater for all tastes.Every room is designed to keep you all but physically attached to the view and the options for outdoor enjoyment are countless. A particular pleasure was the large circular daybed on the terrace in front of the beachfront bedroom, reclining with a chilled drink, breathing in the breeze with the pool and ocean before you can only be described as sublime. Versatility is another advantage.

The sheer size of the property, combined with its sensitive design, mean Baan Puri can happily host several families. There's even a table tennis table, beach toys, a Kayak, bikes and DVDs to keep the kids entertained when not in the pool or on the beach. But the villa would also be perfect for a large gathering of friends or a special celebration. Who could resist a party on the lush beachside lawn? Of course, not even high-end residences escape the odd architectural over-indulgence, but at Baan Puri, the few there are add character rather than inconvenience. A cliché I know but the only real disappointment was leaving.

Ban Suriya

Ban Suriya

Thailand » Koh Samui » Lipa Noi

Ban Suriya is one of those villas where, as reviewers, you find yourself looking for something negative just to tick the ‘Surprises’ box. We failed.

Our time passed far too quickly at Ban Suriya.  In fact, a month would probably be needed to enjoy the villa to the full. It's not only the salubrious surroundings that stand out, it's the way everything seems to go that extra mile to please.  There's not just a computer, there's an iMac packed with tunes that you can play through Bose speakers in the lounge and poolside sala (gazebo).  The gym is not only well-equipped, it has a fridge, and a plunge pool bigger than some other villas' main pool.  Even the DVD collection includes films you wish you'd remembered to buy at the airport.

Ironically, even with so many options we found ourselves drawn to the simplest – the tree house by the beach. The staff is clearly proud to be part of the Ban Suriya experience and the live-in manager was knowledgeable and keen to help us appreciate the villa's pleasures. Although each bedroom is noticeably different, with no one losing out, the master is clearly the most extravagant with its terrazzo bath tub and ensuite lounge. Clever design touches in the guest rooms like direct pool and jacuzzi access, indulgent semi-outdoor bathrooms and hand-picked, stylish furnishings ensure everyone is content, while those staying the twin bedroom by the games room and gym or cosseted in the beachfront pavilion also enjoy complete privacy and independence.

Eight people is probably the minimum number you would need to fully appreciate this villa (there's an option to rent four bedrooms outside peak season), otherwise you might struggle to appreciate its exuberance.

Panacea Retreat - Praana Residence

Panacea Retreat - Praana Residence

Thailand » Koh Samui » Bophut

From the moment we arrived at Panacea Retreat and were greeted by warm smiles, awelcome drink, cool towel and garland of flowers, we began to unwind. We particularly enjoyed our daily yoga session with an experienced teacher, who knew our individual strengths and limits right away – a great perk! Although we were feeling pretty relaxed by this time, we were still pleased to take advantage the in-villa massage. Add the private muay Thai instructor and tennis coach into the mix, and it was hard not to feel a little indulgent.

As much as the lovely island of Samui has to offer, the extraordinary entertainment and leisure facilities at Praana Residence were too good to leave. After a morning of sport, an afternoon of relaxation by the pool and a fun evening of music, dance and karaoke in the club, we stretched out in the home cinema for a midnight movie and then retired to our luxurious bedroom suites. A perfect day!

The kitchen team really know their stuff too. There’s an emphasis on quality ingredients and a good selection of dishes, and we thoroughly enjoyed all the meals we ordered from the a la carte menu. Meals other than breakfast are prepared in the estate’s professional kitchen, and special orders such as barbecues can be discussed with your villa host. Breakfast (which is included in the rate) is no simple affair. Try the freshly made yoghurt pots, with granola and fresh fruit puree, and some avocado, smoked salmon, cold cuts or cheese to accompany your toast … or perhaps a full cooked breakfast if you have room?  Throughout the day, freshly brewed coffee and pots of tea were on offer, with the chef’s biscotti and cookies to keep us sustained until our next delicious meal.

The villa’s layout made it easy to socialise as a group or enjoy quiet ‘me’ time when it suited. We found the staff to be attentive yet unobtrusive, allowing us to enjoy the luxuries and surroundings of the villa undisturbed.

Samui Summit Estate - Alpha Villa

Samui Summit Estate - Alpha Villa

Thailand » Koh Samui » Choeng Mon

It's not often you get to sit with an iced drink in the sunshine and look out on 180 degrees of tropical splendour with twinkling bays left and right and palm-coated hills rising from the valley below.  At Alpha Villa you can't avoid it and the upper floor lounge and pool terrace alone is a perfect spot to spend a relaxing few days.

If you sleep in the comfortable master bedroom next to the pool, you may never bother venturing into the villa’s rather cavernous lower levels.  That's not to say guest bedrooms downstairs are disappointing - all four are quiet, private and slide open onto beautifully landscaped gardens.    

Families or groups of friends will enjoy this villa because it offers plenty of options to combine shared time with more private moments.  Gathering in the TV room on the middle floor is like a trip to a laid-back cinema and it's easy to lose track of time in there, day or night, as you recline on the comfy cushions in air conditioned bliss, catching up on your movie back log.  But up on the pool deck is still the best way to lose a day; floating in the pool or gazing at the view.     

Although there are a lot of steps to negotiate between floors (not ideal for seniors), the kids have plenty of space to explore and play safely (as long as you keep an eye on them around the pool area, which drops off sharply).  Alpha Villa is also one of the few hillside properties on Samui that's genuinely convenient for trips to the main beaches and tourist attractions (although a car will be necessary).     

Efficient but unobtrusive staff and a wide range of optional services give you the freedom to be totally independent but also to spoil yourself with in-house indulgences like a private chef or daily massage if you so choose.  This is a great location, with versatile facilities and breathtaking views, as long as you don't mind a steep drive.
