Villa Sammasan is a great family villa – stylish enough to satisfy those seeking a touch of luxury but comfortable and welcoming for kids, too.  We spent most of our time here on the pool terrace, where the kids flipped for the pool, literally, as they spent a lot of time perfecting their forward jump flips while we watched in comfort from the shady sala.  We had a short stay yet the weather conditions ran the gamut from glorious sunshine to torrential rains, and the villa was a lovely haven either way.  The ultra comfortable living room and media room were great retreats for games and movies when the sun disappeared.  The larger four-bedroom Villa Napalai  next door is under the same management so big groups or extended families needing more space might consider booking Sammasan and Napalai together.

The staff here are helpful and amazingly, considering the picky eaters among us, the chef’s meals were relished and devoured by all.  Dinner was a standout event: we thought we’d ordered far too many dishes, but they were so delicious we finished them all.  The yam nue yang (spicy beef salad) and pla nueng manao (steamed sea bass in lime and garlic) were simply spectacular, and we watched in awe as our kids ate the fish up like candy.

Highlights

The majestic sea and sunset views were an inspiration, and we loved having the choice to enjoy them from the pool terrace or, for a more secluded view, up on the balcony of the gorgeous master bedroom.  And who doesn’t love a sea-view jacuzzi? Divine!  We also really liked how the artwork and décor really added a fun, flamboyant flair to the villa’s modern style.

Surprises

Though the beach is enticingly close by, the walk to get there is down the estate’s steep road so those with mobility challenges are advised to ask for a lift.  Young children will need to be watched since the pool open to the living areas and has no safety fence.  The beach club scene that Surin was once well known for has been removed, so you’ll need to travel a bit further to enjoy those seaside sunset cocktails.

Actually want to bring the whole family but my brothers passport expired so I bring my son and wife. The villa is excellent. Have a private pool and no one to disturb us. Chef’s cooking skills is the best. Feels like we don’t have to go out to eat. Lastly, Mym is a beautiful woman, considerate and kind. My son like you very much. We will be back, maybe next year.

We are 7 people and have spent 7 relaxing and pleasant days in this house. Woody is very helpful and takes good care of every detailed requirement. The chef Lin cooked delicious food for us every day and our beds and rooms are cleaned by 2 maids. We are all very satisfied with the service, we would like to come back.

Thank you for the opportunity to share your wonderful home with us it has been a most enjoyable holiday. We have stayed eights nighand thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere of your home, the peace and security (no neighbours on either side during our time) so made for a very secluded and intimate stay. We enjoyed our walks along the beach, eating out at local restaurants and the atmosphere that surrounds Surin (the walk back up the hill to the house was challenging but we made it every time – good work out)!!! To the wonderful “team” - Sunny, Yao, Sao and Kamaya – a BIG thank you for your helpfulness during our stay. The meals cooked were mouth watering delicious, attention to details of cleaning and linen service were amazing and the information provided was most needful. Thank you Yao for the tips on making your great sauces!! From Australia we will be thinking of you all.
