Villas in Koh Samui, Thailand

The third largest island in Thailand, Koh Samui is just 21km at its widest point and 25km at its longest. The hinterland consists of forested limestone hills and the shoreline is made up of countless coconut palm-fringed beaches and bays.

Traditionally a coconut plantation and fisherman's haven, in the last few years the island has grown into a major holiday destination with regular connections to Bangkok and direct flights from Hong Kong and Singapore. Despite rapid development, Samui is small enough to retain its charm and its modest size also makes it a convenient, laid back location even during busy seasons.

As well as fine beaches, Samui is known for recreation, relaxation and fine food. The blue waters of the Thai Gulf provide a wealth of possibility for water sports, while on land the island is well known for its professional and indulgent spas and health retreats. Fresh seafood is a specialty at most of Samui's restaurants, but you can also enjoy food from almost every corner of the globe thanks to the island's strong international influences.

Each beach on Samui has its own particular character and ambience. The east coast beaches of Chaweng and Lamai are busy, commercial areas with everything from beach vendors to fast food chains, while to the north, Bang Rak and Bo Phut have a more relaxed local village atmosphere. Beaches like Lipa Noi and Laem Set on the western and southern shores feel much more remote and untouched.

Koh Samui combines comfort and convenience with a sense of real escape and this has made it a popular choice for residential as well as tourist development. The island is an eclectic blend of nature and sophistication, one that draws repeat visitors every year to indulge in its tropical delights.

Baan Kilee

Baan Kilee

Thailand » Koh Samui » Lipa Noi

It is rare to find villas like Baan Kilee. We visited as a group of families and it worked an absolute treat. The kids had a ball and fell into bed exhausted each evening giving the parents time to enjoy their vacation. The staff could not have been more welcoming and accommodating; they continually smiled despite being run ragged all hours of the day by demanding parents and children. In true Thai style the kids were taken under their wing from day 1. The food was exquisite and cold drinks, teas, coffees and snacks just kept on appearing. The villa itself is well designed - practical, functional and eminently flexible. All the bedrooms are generous and have good bathrooms. We have no problem recommending Baan Kilee - it is one of the best villas we have seen.

Baan Ling Noi

Baan Ling Noi

Thailand » Koh Samui » Bophut

Slouching in front of the TV at Baan Ling Noi with the French windows open onto the terrace, or standing under the rain shower gazing down at the beaches in the distance, the villa’s stunning views and surroundings have a constant and positive influence. Being this high up has its advantages, not least because you feel completely removed from the world below, and the sheer sense of space easily compensates for any lack of beachside ambience.

Although sharing with two other couples, we were surprised how easy it was to spend time alone. The 10-seater sofa in the pool pavilion quickly became the meeting point, providing the perfect excuse to stay in your swimming gear all day. From here we would drift off to swim, read, snooze, watch a film, then come back to chat and enjoy the views. The helpful staff soon caught on to this routine and kept the fridge in the pavilion well-stocked. We even had lunch served there a few times when it seemed too much of a strain to move up to the dining room.

The stairs can be a little wearing, but in the evenings the upper terrace is well worth the climb. The sunset and night views over Bo Phut to the islands are priceless and who could say no to super-fresh seafood prepared by a talented private chef (this costs extra but is still very reasonable), especially when enjoyed with a few glasses of chilled wine and good company on a balcony under the stars?

All the bedrooms are comfortable with plenty of space and storage, but the master suite by the pool is significantly more extravagant so room allocation could be an issue. The gigantic ensuite bath tub was an absolute joy and once you get used to the ‘shower with a view’ concept, daily ablutions become a whole new experience.  

Baan Ling Noi is not for vertigo sufferers, those who find a lot of stairs challenging, or for families with intrepid toddlers (note that the infinity pool does have a steep drop-off). But for those who enjoy privacy and total escape, it's nothing short of a natural high.

Baan Ora Chon

Baan Ora Chon

Thailand » Koh Samui » Lipa Noi

Ora Chorn is huge with a very dignified refined feel. It is in a wonderful setting – one of the very best in Koh Samui, if not Asia. We loved the open airy feel with so much space (there is room for another two or three bedrooms). The villa has a tranquil but serious vibe which, if we were really picky, would benefit from some warm touches to make it more homely. Don’t get us wrong, it is still eminently comfortable with huge bedrooms, great bathrooms, fabulous views and an extremely private and peaceful setting. We particularly liked the poolside sala for dinner: great views and a lovely evening temperature (beware of the slippy floor though). The staff were lovely; the villa manageress in particular, who, once relaxed, proved to be a real character – confident, efficient, friendly and full of useful information. Her English is excellent (the other staff were average) and she was very determined to make our stay enjoyable – which she easily succeeded in doing.

Baan Sairee

Baan Sairee

Thailand » Koh Samui » Laem Sor

It's wasn't until we drove from the airport and saw how developed Samui is becoming that we realised just how special Baan Sairee is both in terms of its design and the secluded location. Authentic wooden buildings and unspoilt surroundings make the villa feel very established – something built by a trader perhaps, or a member of the Thai aristocracy – and more akin to the traditional accommodation available in the north of Thailand, but with added bonus of a beach and superb facilities for the kids.     

For families there is more than enough space and although the villa is a fair distance from the main tourist centres, there’s plenty to keep you occupied onsite. A combination of swimming, volleyball, badminton, tennis, a trampoline with safety net and frisbee sessions on the lawn, plus the added treat of kayaking (there are two provided with the villa) when the tide comes up, will keep the kids smiling all day and sleeping well at night. Unless you feel the urge to venture out often, perhaps to visit a waterfall or ride on an elephant, it’s hardly worth hiring a rental car (and the staff can organise transport if needed).    

The villa manageress couldn't do enough for us and the chef carefully caters for all tastes. The staff are also used to coping with kids’ food requests (although the manageress told us she often manages to get them to try new things – apparently chicken satay is now on quite a few ex-guest's weekly menu). For special occasions such as birthday parties the staff will set the table on the lawn and organise fireworks on the beach.    

Baan Sairee offers the chance to experience an authentic but luxurious Thai home and enjoy it as your own. It's not a place for those looking to dine out and party all night. That would be a waste of the villa's special charm.

Baan Tawan Chai

Baan Tawan Chai

Thailand » Koh Samui » Laem Set

We particularly enjoyed the natural surroundings of Baan Tawan Chai; its well-maintained garden, beach in front and coconut groves to the sides. Watching sea birds explore the shore at low tide, and the myna birds taking a bath in the pool was entertainment in itself, as was watching the resident dog, Tawan, take his regular walks down to the beach. This elderly dog belongs to the staff and lazes in their quarters throughout the day, only heading to the beach for a dip in the sea or to half-heartedly chase a crab every now and then.

This part of Koh Samui’s coast enjoys a regular breeze off the sea, so is a little cooler than other beaches on the island. It’s this breeze that has drawn one of the kite-surfing schools to Laem Set. The beach, although not the most pristine, is good for beachcombing, and exploring with the kayak shows a different perspective of this coast.

Khun Sompit, the bubbly villa manageress, is very knowledgeable about the surrounding area and offers good advice on where to go and what to do. We spent nearly all our time outside, moving between the shady sala and the poolside loungers, taking cooling dips, relaxing over a drink and enjoying the birdlife while doing very little.  

It was lovely to wake up to views of the ocean from the comfortable bed in the master suite, and have tea set out and waiting to enjoy in the sala while deciding what to do – or not to do – for the day. Our inclusive continental breakfast was well presented, with a good selection of fruit, cereal, toast and muffins as well as juices and tea or coffee.
