You'd be hard pressed to find a more romantic spot than The Headland Villas. The sunsets are unbelievable and the design definitely lends itself to love, with special touches like the private bathroom courtyard and sliding wooden shutters outside the bedrooms for added privacy. Even if you bring the kids or share with friends you can easily escape to your own space (upstairs in the TV room, for example while the kids are in the pool).

For those craving company and variety, being virtually inside the grounds of a luxury resort means the options for dining and entertainment are far more diverse than you would expect in such a secluded location. The cool, white decor and uncluttered interiors not only show off your sun tan, but also mean you don't worry too much about drifting between the pool, terrace and fridge in your beach gear. The staff keep a low profile and are 'on-call' rather than 'in-situ' for most of the time (although extra hands can be brought in, as needed, at extra cost), so you're left to do your thing in satisfied peace.    

Being part of a small estate also gives you the option of hiring more than one of The Headland Villas for a family gathering or celebration. Once ensconced in your own, however, you neither see nor hear your neighbours unless you invite them over (this is a great location for sunset cocktails). It's quite rare, even on Samui, to find such modern comforts so close to unspoilt nature and traditional island life. The combination of the two makes for a memorable holiday indeed.
 
Since our initial visit three years ago, the Headland Villas have flourished and now blend even more naturally into their surroundings as the gardens have become more established. The properties have been well-maintained, with little evidence of wear-and-tear.

Highlights

There are views - and then there are these views. You never tire of the panoramic vistas from all five of The Headland Villas and this is one of the few places on Samui where you can watch the sun melt into the horizon. The outdoor spaces take full advantage of this and with the entire villa designed as an open space, you quickly feel the benefits of sunshine and sea air.

Surprises

No TVs in the bedrooms may put some people off, but then you could always sleep the children in the upstairs TV room, which (uniquely among the Headland Villas) has its own ensuite bathroom. Being so open to the elements means insects might also feel welcome. The roll-down blinds do not completely close off the rooms so a swift lock down in the early evening is advisable to prevent mosquito stress.

If you are looking for a secluded villa, this is not. It is however, on a very lovely headland, in a very lovely place. It is not within walking distance to any restaurant, you will need to organise a taxi, however the staff are more than happy to do this for you. If you are looking for the ultimate private getaway, keep looking. If you are looking for a very relaxing, semi private place then this is for you. The staff are attentive, albeit maybe too attentive. I would definately recommend the villa for a family wanting to chill or some couples/friends wanting a relaxing holiday. It was truely a wonderful spot to relax & read a fantastic book. Please go & enjoy the view. It is worth it.

A very nice and lovely place. A lot of privacy. For all, who don't want to have a hotel or resort atmosphere. Very advisable.
