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 sun-downers, 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!

Highlights

We loved having access to a wonderful, clean and long beach for walks, kayaking and general beach activities. There’s a taste of yesteryear Samui here, as fishermen quietly sort their nets under a tree on the beach, right outside the villa.

Surprises

We didn’t find this a problem, but the only TVs at the villa are in the main lounge area and the master suite lounge, so those that enjoy watching TV in bed may be disappointed. But with such a beautiful beach and pool outside, there’s no need to spend time in front of the TV.

Tennis team from Singapore had a fabulous time bonding, playing tennis, and enjoying a birthday celebration one evening. Each night we had a game night which we all participated. We ate, drank and danced the night away. The food was absolutely amazing. The view was amazing, even as we watched the storm coming through. Definitely a trip we will never forget.

17-20 May 2019 A great stay! Kids enjoyed themselves thoroughly with the toys and facilities, and adults had a relaxing time. Food was great and we felt taken care of by the crew. The Apple TV was a great touch! We appreciate that the villa is clean and well maintained. Hardly any mosquitoes and flies! Thanks to Khun Luck for coordinating our stay. The Furtado family

Thank you to the whole team for making our stay such an enjoyable one. The villa is lovely and is always so well taken care of, the food is fantastic - the Tom Yum was a favourite. The staff are all friendly, hospitality and professional and made us feel at home. Special Thanks to Luck for helping us arrange transport and being a fantastic leader to the team. Thanks to Ning for taking care of us and Khun Porn for making our room up so nice everyday. Thank you to the chefs and security and a big thank you to the man who caught that snake.

We stayed here and we had an amazing stay. Luck and the team looked after us extremely well. All of the staff were really attentive without being intrusive, a real pleasure to be here. We hope to visit again when we can get some additional family to join us. The day trip organized to the Eco Marine Park was really special also. Thank you Luck and team for all you had work and for taking care of us all.

Thank you for an amazing stay at this villa. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful - we couldn't have asked for a better team. What really impressed us was the tidiness and cleanliness of the villa - which made our stay that much more comfortable. The food was fantastic and the chef had no issue with any dietary restrictions. Overall, the service and villa is amazing and exceeded our expectations. Thank you for making our trip to Koh Samui a special one.

Upon our arrival at the villa the team made it special from the minute we arrived till the minute we left. Nothing was too much trouble and everything was done with smile, seamlessly organized - from the menu choices and in house spa. The whole villa is designed to provide enough space for everyone to chill out and has a large edge pool that is really enjoying and also super attentive staff like Luck seems to know what you want before we do - allowing me to have a cooking from their good chef at the villa. Nice experience and must stay again.

Absolutely outstanding! We have been treated like royalty with such kindness and attention to every detail. It was such a good experience that we would like to return as soon as possible with the WHOLE family. Everything was an experience, the food, the table settings and the service. We were a mixed group of people from grandparents to young children, we enjoyed all the amenities, pool (especially), kayak, tennis court.
