Bo Phut villas in Koh Samui, Thailand

The quaint village of Bo Phut is something of a contrast to neighbouring Chaweng, which is Koh Samui’s main tourist centre. Bo Phut is much smaller than Chaweng, a picturesque seaside village and beach with a laid back, almost Mediterranean atmosphere focused around a narrow, one-way street lined with a good mix of restaurants and bars, many housed in traditional wooden buildings. The original fishing village has expanded to the point that it can no longer be called sleepy and the jetty is a popular starting point for speedboat trips to outer islands including Koh Phangan, Koh Tao and Ang Thong National Marine Park. Just past the village, Bo Phut bay stretches north and is fringed with palm-fronted, upscale boutique resorts. Bo Phut district actually covers a relatively large part of Koh Samui, stretching from the main west coast tourist centre of Chaweng to Mae Nam beach in the north. In the last few years, the hills behind the original village have become the location of choice for a number of new high-end residential developments. Large luxury villas are scattered amongst the palm plantations and the main road that serves them is now lined with all kinds of commercial suppliers, furniture outlets and convenience stores.

Baan Ling Noi

Baan Ling Noi

Thailand » Koh Samui » Bo Phut

Slouching in front of the TV at Baan Ling Noi with the French windows open onto the terrace, or standing under the rain shower gazing down at the beaches in the distance, the villa’s stunning views and surroundings have a constant and positive influence. Being this high up has its advantages, not least because you feel completely removed from the world below, and the sheer sense of space easily compensates for any lack of beachside ambience.

Although sharing with two other couples, we were surprised how easy it was to spend time alone. The 10-seater sofa in the pool pavilion quickly became the meeting point, providing the perfect excuse to stay in your swimming gear all day. From here we would drift off to swim, read, snooze, watch a film, then come back to chat and enjoy the views. The helpful staff soon caught on to this routine and kept the fridge in the pavilion well-stocked. We even had lunch served there a few times when it seemed too much of a strain to move up to the dining room.

The stairs can be a little wearing, but in the evenings the upper terrace is well worth the climb. The sunset and night views over Bo Phut to the islands are priceless and who could say no to super-fresh seafood prepared by a talented private chef (this costs extra but is still very reasonable), especially when enjoyed with a few glasses of chilled wine and good company on a balcony under the stars?

All the bedrooms are comfortable with plenty of space and storage, but the master suite by the pool is significantly more extravagant so room allocation could be an issue. The gigantic ensuite bath tub was an absolute joy and once you get used to the ‘shower with a view’ concept, daily ablutions become a whole new experience.  

Baan Ling Noi is not for vertigo sufferers, those who find a lot of stairs challenging, or for families with intrepid toddlers (note that the infinity pool does have a steep drop-off). But for those who enjoy privacy and total escape, it's nothing short of a natural high.

Villa Kya

Villa Kya

Thailand » Koh Samui » Bo Phut

There’s a freshness and brightness about Villa Kya that’s quite exhilarating. Despite being situated so obviously high above the ocean waves, the villa almost has the feel of a luxury yacht.  We put it down to the gleaming white surfaces, the gently curved design that follows the contours of the hillside, the sail-like roof and, perhaps most of all, the stunningly positioned ‘Moon Terrace’, which rivals the most luxurious of top decks.

There is a tremendous choice of places to relax here.  Inside, our top marks went to the breakfast bar in the kitchen – what a great place to sip a coffee and start the day!  Outside, it was tougher to chose a winner:  On a lounger by the pool? On a bar stool in the pool? Enjoying a quiet read in the shade of the lazing lounge? Sipping a sundowner on the Moon Terrace?  They’re all up there, and they all have the most amazing views to boot.

Bedrooms are simply, stylishly and romantically furnished (especially the master) and beds are very comfortable.  There may not be acres of space in the guest rooms, but the views through the wide glass doors more than make up for that.  The villa only opened for business in August 2012 and everything is new and sparkling. The staff are cheerful and obliging and the owner/managers couldn’t be more helpful.  We highly recommend sampling the talented Khun Kiat’s pomelo salad and Thai chicken curry. Delicious!

Villa M

Villa M

Thailand » Koh Samui » Bo Phut

Built in 2009, Villa M is a lovely townhouse villa. Compared with many villas I have seen, it is full of charm and character but also loaded with modern conveniences. In addition it has the dual benefits of being right on the beach as well as being at the quiet end of Fisherman’s Village (not that there is a noisy end) with its popular street of restaurants and bars. The Freshly painted stark white walls, well maintained furniture and fixtures looked striking which with all the memorabilia gives a real pleasant colonial touch. It’s a house I would love to stay in but not own – keeping all the white clean must be a nightmare! That said the two staff (manager and cleaner/waitress) did an excellent job whilst we were there. Note the staff are on from 8am until 5pm unless needed longer and the villa manager is shared with another villa up the road. I would definitely recommend getting a chef (extra charge) for at least a couple of nights as the food we had was exquisitely done, both Western and Asian.

Mullion Cove

Mullion Cove

Thailand » Koh Samui » Bo Phut

We found Mullion Cove a refreshing change from many of the villas of this grade we've inspected on Koh Samui, some of which feel a little impersonal or built-to-rent. The cool white decor and homely furnishings here reminded us of a more traditional European style, but with a light, bright and energetic feel that suits the tropics. Because the garden is constantly in the sun, the glass-fronted living room and the bedrooms do get rather warm, but the air conditioning and closed bedroom curtains cooled things down and once we acclimatized, it was just as pleasant to stay outside from breakfast until sunset, switching between the pool, sun beds and sala. Although the master suite in the main pavilion is an extravagant affair, we chose the front bedroom pavilion as it was closer to the trees with its own private terrace. Waking up to the sound of the birds and flinging open the curtains to soak in the panoramic sea views more than made up for any lack of beach.

Mullion Cove lets you mix your holiday pleasures with ease. If you tire of the sun you can retreat to the lounge to catch up on films and books, constantly within reach of a tasty snack or cold drink. There's even an intercom in the kitchen to call the maid if she's not within sight and she's happy to help prepare meals beyond the included breakfast if you choose not to hire a chef. Bo Phut is perhaps Samui's least spoilt beachside village, so trips down the hill are a treat, especially to eat out and enjoy the beachside ambience. It's an easy drive, but you have to be careful at night because there are few lights on the road that leads to the villa. If you're sharing with family and friends, you probably won't venture out much as Mullion Cove is a fabulous place to relax and escape from the world.

Panacea Retreat - Praana Residence

Panacea Retreat - Praana Residence

Thailand » Koh Samui » Bo Phut

From the moment we arrived at Panacea Retreat and were greeted by warm smiles, a welcome drink, cool towel and garland of flowers, we began to unwind. We particularly enjoyed our daily yoga session with an experienced teacher, who knew our individual strengths and limits right away – a great perk! Although we were feeling pretty relaxed by this time, we were still pleased to take advantage of our complimentary massages (one hour per guest per stay). Add the private muay Thai instructor and tennis coach into the mix, and it was hard not to feel a little indulgent.

As much as the lovely island of Samui has to offer, the extraordinary entertainment and leisure facilities at Praana Residence were too good to leave. After a morning of sport, an afternoon of relaxation by the pool and a fun evening of music, dance and karaoke in the club, we stretched out in the home cinema for a midnight movie and then retired to our luxurious bedroom suites. A perfect day!

The kitchen team really know their stuff too. There’s an emphasis on quality ingredients and a good selection of dishes, and we thoroughly enjoyed all the meals we ordered from the a la carte menu. Meals other than breakfast are prepared in the estate’s professional kitchen, and special orders such as barbecues can be discussed with your villa host. Breakfast (which is included in the rate) is no simple affair. Try the freshly made yoghurt pots, with granola and fresh fruit puree, and some avocado, smoked salmon, cold cuts or cheese to accompany your toast … or perhaps a full cooked breakfast if you have room?  Throughout the day, freshly brewed coffee and pots of tea were on offer, with the chef’s biscotti and cookies to keep us sustained until our next delicious meal.

The villa’s layout made it easy to socialise as a group or enjoy quiet ‘me’ time when it suited. We found the staff to be attentive yet unobtrusive, allowing us to enjoy the luxuries and surroundings of the villa undisturbed.

Panacea Retreat - Purana

Panacea Retreat - Purana

From the moment we arrived at Villa Purana and were greeted by warm smiles, a welcome drink, cool towel and garland of flowers, we began to unwind.  We particularly enjoyed our daily yoga session with an experienced teacher, who knew our individual strengths and limits right away – a great perk! Although we were already feeling pretty relaxed by now, our complimentary massages (one hour per guest per stay) were the icing on the cake!

The kitchen team really know their stuff at Panacea.  The dishes we ordered from the a la carte menu were fresh, with an emphasis on quality ingredients and there was a good selection of meat, seafood, poultry, vegetarian and healthy options, as well as local favourites.  Meals other than breakfast are prepared in the estate’s professional kitchen, and special orders, eg barbecues, can be discussed with your villa host.  Breakfast is no simple affair, with the chef’s baking skills in evidence once again.  We recommend the freshly made yoghurt pots, with granola and fruit puree, and some avocado, smoked salmon, cold cuts or cheese to accompany your toast … or perhaps a full cooked breakfast if you have room?  Throughout the day, freshly brewed coffee and pots of tea were on offer, with the chef’s biscotti and cookies to keep us sustained until our next delicious meal.

The villa’s layout meant that we found it easy to both come together as a group, or retreat to the calmness of our bedrooms if we wanted some quiet time.  High-pressure rain showers were most enjoyable to freshen up before dinner, and guests in the master suite can also enjoy the luxury of a deep terrazzo bathtub.  We found the staff to be attentive, always there when we wanted a drink, yet unobtrusive, allowing us to enjoy the luxuries and surroundings of the villa undisturbed.
