Samui Summit Estate - Hilltop View 2 Reviews


Our Review

We thoroughly appreciated the care and dedication that had clearly gone into furnishing and decorating Hilltop View 2. And the years that the owners spent amassing their treasure trove of antiques and collectables have certainly paid off. However, the house doesn’t feel like a museum – many of the pieces are usable items, although a few, such as the teapot collection, are carefully put away for eyes only.

Although TV shouldn’t make or break a holiday, it was nice to be able to watch what we wanted from our bed, each room having its own satellite channels. Not that we managed to stay awake for long: the bed was so comfortable (with both down and foam pillows) that sleep came quickly. But be careful! The silent air-con and black out curtains meant that it was all too easy to miss the sunrise and that early morning beach run. We made the most of the tropical climate by drifting between the pool and jacuzzi for cooling down, reading in the shaded sala, and grabbing a drink from the outdoor bar in between. The housekeeper keeps the villa spotless and estate manager Khun Birth is happy to act as a concierge service and book any extras or activities you may require, such as a chef, massage, or transfer, and is knowledgeable on what to do in the area.

We chose to open up the sliding doors to the pool and let in the sea breeze while enjoying our continental breakfast, later changing to air-con when the midday heat set in. The fully equipped compact kitchen offered a home-from-home feel and we enjoyed whipping up a few snacks after stocking up at the fresh food market. Making use of the private chef one night was however an indulgent luxury not to be missed.

Highlights

We loved being surrounded by the owners’ artwork and collectables, and the outdoor entertainment area with the covered bar, sala, pool and jacuzzi made for a very sociable and relaxed stay.

Surprises

As the villa is filled with collectables, those with young children may not feel totally at ease.
