There's something refreshingly independent about Blue Samui. The secluded setting is quite unusual for a fast developing island because there are no other properties surrounding the villa (bar one, a little further down the hill, which barely enters the view). This means you quickly relax into your own, private world – shoes and watch off, beachwear on. Once you've stocked the fridge at one of the island's big supermarkets, the urge to venture out fades, at least during the day. The homely atmosphere, combined with abundant on-hand facilities lets you set your own schedule and this generally involves little more than eating, lounging, reading and drifting into the view. Of course, unless you're someone that sees cooking as a leisure activity, the lack of a chef means dining out becomes part of the routine, but with a hire car there are plenty of options close by. The two on-site staff are very keen to please and will happily serve snacks and drinks so you don't have to leave you sun lounger too often. A poolside barbecue is also a must at least once during your stay. The evening light makes those breathtaking views almost surreal. Although the guest bedrooms share a bathroom, the rooms themselves are nicely furnished, spacious and the wide verandah is almost an extra lounge. The views from the nicely hidden bath tub in the master suite make bathing a special pleasure that adds to the indulgence in what, for us, was a pleasingly private and relaxing island retreat.

Highlights

The superlative views from almost every point on the property not only cement the sense of escape but also give the villa an added sense of space and beauty. The secluded hillside setting also guarantees absolute privacy, making this an ideal getaway for those looking to remove themselves from the stresses of city life.

Surprises

Proximity to nature means sharing space with insects, falling fruit and the occasional surprise guest (bats fly around at sunset during certain seasons). But the villa has been designed to minimise natural intrusions with covered terraces and glassed off garden areas. The only human intrusion is a little traffic noise from the ring road that passes below the villa, but the views more than compensate.

there's a name for paradies on earth.... Blue Samui, Koh Samui, Thailand

If you are looking for a place to relax, Blue Samui is definitely something for you! The villa gives you everything you need to forget hard days at work and makes a dream come true.
If you are someone who is looking for pure relaxation, Blue Villa is the best place were you can enjoy great view, cool drinks in the sala or just have a good swimm in the pool.
My wife and I had 19 great days at the villa! It is a place you could hang out for a while. Large living room, well equipped kitchen and a big sala makes living very easy. The bedrooms are huge, with a big bed in the master bedroom, where you will find a good sleep as its so quiet. And the great thing about the bedrooms are, you wake up in the morning and you have a stunning view over to Koh Pangan... makes you want to stay in bed for the whole day!
Nathon Beach or Mea Nam are close by, even though we suggest you rent a bike or a car, because it is a bit far away from Chaweng Beach (40 min.) or Lamai (30 min.). There are lots of Thai Restaurants nearby, which serve great original Thai food for great prices.
The housekeepers, Nu und Jo, take such good care of the villa and of you too, while you are there. They are so friendly and did such a great job and they have found a very special place in our hearts. We wish them all the best for the coming future. Two dogs, Pooky and Toto guard the Villa as well, such cute and friendly dogs, you will love them the first time you see them.
All in all, it is a place we will get back to for sure. Marc the owner did a great job renovating the place, it has everything you need if you are looking for heaven on earth.
