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.

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, a welcome 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.

Suralai

Suralai

Thailand » Koh Samui » Bophut

Villa Suralai is an exquisite villa. The views are superb – each of the bedrooms has full-length glass doors and excellent terraces. The swimming pool is fantastic (despite some minor calcification) with comfy sun loungers and the gazebo is a great place to relax and escape the heat of the day. The finish and thought which have gone into the villa makes it one of the best on Koh Samui although it would be nice to see a bit more colour and homely warm in the décor. During our stay, the villa manager was charming, knowledgeable and helpful to the extreme, more than making up for the simple English of the other staff. The chef turned out some awesome Thai meals and we understand he can produce a reasonable selection of western dishes too – do mention how hot you like your food though, Thais do like their spices! (Note the management company have a team of chefs so they do rotate a bit, all the chefs we used were excellent.) Don’t bother with shopping and provisioning – let the chef do it, you will pay 30% for the handling cost plus a government tax but it keeps you out of the supermarket which has to be a good thing while on holiday. An excellent villa for a group or family (see surprises), a superb party or wedding pad or perfect for a corporate retreat.

Tassana Pra

Tassana Pra

Thailand » Koh Samui » Bang Rak-Big Buddha

Staying at Tassana Pra feels a little like travelling back in time. Walking barefoot on teakwood floors surrounded by antique, homely touches it is easy to imagine life in a more genteel era. Anyone with artistic or literary aspirations would certainly feel at home in this villa, but it has also been carefully designed to offer a range of material indulgences. The free-form pool is a particular delight, especially with the playful addition of a hanging dive platform from the upper terrace. All the living areas are comfortable as well as being beautifully decorated. Options for reflection and relaxation range from lying by the pool to reclining on a soft daybed on the terrace, sinking into one of the deep sofas in the living room or relaxing with a book in the garden gazebo. Meals can be taken in or outside – it’s particularly enjoyable to have dinner served on the terrace, allowing you to enjoy the softly lit garden and twinkling lights of Big Buddha bay beyond.

The master and upstairs guest bedrooms are also worthy of special mention. They are decorated with such delicate antique style you could be forgiven for thinking you'd been invited to a royal residence. The master suite’s dressing room definitely gives this part of the villa a stately ambiance, with the large wooden dresser and built-in panelled wardrobes fit for most princesses.

Whichever spot you choose, the views and surroundings at Tassana Pra inspire a sense of quiet contentment. The managers, Khun Aoy and Khun Wally, could easily be characters from a Victorian novel. Their calm dedication to duty, smiling faces and knowledge of all things relevant make them as much a feature of the house as its stunning architecture.

Tawantok Beach Villas – Villa 1

Tawantok Beach Villas – Villa 1

Thailand » Koh Samui » Lipa Noi

We particularly enjoyed the sense of space at the Tawantok Beach Villas created by the open walkways, skylights and uncluttered décor. Big groups won’t feel as though they’re on top of each other as there’s more than enough space between the lounge area, abundant pool loungers, the dining sala, and the master suite’s own private lounge.

We experienced the villa as a family. The staff were most accommodating, and it’s obvious they love having children as guests. We enjoyed the villa’s outdoor activities including a paddle in the kayaks and a game of volleyball on the beach (there’s a net set up). The tennis court is private, shared only with neighbouring Tawantok Beach Villa 2, which means that’s there’s no long waiting list to play, and the staff can even arrange a tennis coach (advance notice required). We had a long walk on the beach to build up an appetite before dinner, and this highlighted the villa’s ideal location for those seeking peace and tranquillity, but without being completely isolated. The beach is clean, and as we walked along we passed local children swimming and playing in the sand, fishermen setting out their nets and even a sunset wedding – very popular on Lipa Noi Beach. There aren’t any troublesome beach vendors along here, but there are a few resorts and restaurants if you want to stop for a drink along the way. Even better, enjoy sundowners, as we did, lounging by the villa pool, taking in Lipa Noi’s famous sunset.

We chose our dinner from the villa’s suggestion menu and enjoyed both Thai and western dishes – salad, pasta and a vegetarian red curry, followed by a fresh fruit platter. What a treat to come back to a perfectly prepared meal after a long walk and a sunset swim!
