Lipa Noi villas in Koh Samui, Thailand

One of Koh Samui’s best-kept secrets, Lipa Noi boasts three kilometres of curved white sandy beach smack in the middle of Koh Samui's west coast. With its local village ambiance and laid-back beachside vibe, Lipa Noi makes an ideal destination for family holidays or a special getaway with friends. If stunning sunsets, calm crystal waters, fine sands, swaying coconut palms and a selection of exceptional private luxury villas tick your boxes, then take a closer look at Lipa Noi.

The picturesque sandy beach here is one of the best on the island for kids, and there’s plenty of shade from the coconut palms lining its edge. Calm and very shallow water means year-round safe swimming and a good choice of watersports, and although Lipa Noi is only five minutes from the mainland ferry pier, it is the most serene and untouched beach on Koh Samui’s west coast. For a carefree family holiday, Lipa Noi is hard to beat.

You’ll find plenty of places to eat, both on and off the beach and a massage under the shade of a palm tree, with views across the island-speckled waters of the Gulf of Siam, is easy to fix. Lipa Noi is also close to a number of popular Koh Samui attractions, including the island’s main waterfalls at Namuang, the Magic Buddha Garden high in the hills, and Paradise Park Farm, a family friendly adventure with a hilltop pool, animal and bird feeding and amazing views.

Although Lipa Noi and the west coast of Koh Samui is better known for its peace, quiet and exclusivity, it’s also home to one of Samui's trendiest beach clubs, the Nikki Beach Resort, which draws visitors from across the globe.

With some of Koh Samui’s most sought-after accommodation located close to the beach and in the lush forested hills above the ocean, a Lipa Noi luxury private villa holiday is guaranteed to deliver total rest and relaxation.

Akuvara

Akuvara

Thailand » Koh Samui » Lipa Noi

Akuvara's contemporary design may not be to everyone's taste, but once you settle into the tropical lifestyle on offer you soon appreciate the beauty of keeping things simple.  The clean open spaces suit the environment and technological enhancements like the music and movie hard drive in the living rooms give the villa a distinctive, modern feel.

Initially, we felt the three lounge areas to be excessive, but with kids in tow the option of a separate entertainment room in the evenings definitely appeals, and the upper floor lounge adds a new dimension to sunset cocktails.   

The staff are courteous and try hard to meet every request.  Despite the occasional language barrier they manage to run everything smoothly while remaining unobtrusive and the English-speaking manager ensures the villa runs smoothly and deals with things like tour bookings and restaurant recommendations.

This part of Lipa Noi offers a nice balance between seclusion and diversion.  You can happily spend days doing very little, but a short drive to the other side of the peninsular brings you to some decent resort restaurants, as well as the Nikki Beach Club, which is far more sophisticated a venue than you'd expect to find in such a secluded location.    

In some ways Akuvara felt like two villas in one.  The studio at the rear of the property feels like an independent unit, but would certainly be a useful addition for a full family gathering.  The option to rent the villa without this fourth bedroom, however, makes Akuvara a great choice as a functional but comfortable family getaway.     

If there is such a thing as villa envy then staying at Akuvara may inspire it as the villas close-by are significantly larger and more opulent than this one - but come with a much higher price tag.  Yet despite its compact design, Akuvara still boasts the full range of amenities required to provide a pleasant beachside escape.  Between the pool and the beach you never want for daytime pleasures and lazing in the ocean-front sala with a cool drink and a book must surely rate as one of life's finer moments.

Ban Suriya

Ban Suriya

Thailand » Koh Samui » Lipa Noi

Ban Suriya is one of those villas where, as reviewers, you find yourself looking for something negative just to tick the ‘Surprises’ box. We failed.

Our time passed far too quickly at Ban Suriya. In fact, a month would probably be needed to enjoy the villa to the full. It's not only the salubrious surroundings that stand out, it's the way everything seems to go that extra mile to please. There's not just a computer, there's an iMac packed with tunes that you can play through Bose speakers in the lounge and poolside sala (gazebo). The gym is not only well-equipped, it has a fridge, and a plunge pool bigger than some other villas' main pool. Even the DVD collection includes films you wish you'd remembered to buy at the airport.

Ironically, even with so many options we found ourselves drawn to the simplest – the tree house by the beach. The staff are clearly proud to be part of the Ban Suriya experience and the live-in manageress was knowledgeable and keen to help us appreciate the villa's pleasures. Although each bedroom is noticeably different, with no one losing out, the master is clearly the most extravagant with its terrazzo bath tub and ensuite lounge. Clever design touches in the guest rooms like direct pool and jacuzzi access, indulgent semi-outdoor bathrooms and hand-picked, stylish furnishings ensure everyone is content, while those staying the twin bedroom by the games room and gym or cosseted in the beachfront pavilion also enjoy complete privacy and independence.

Eight people is probably the minimum number you would need to fully appreciate this villa (there's an option to rent four bedrooms outside peak season), otherwise you might struggle to appreciate its exuberance.

Tawantok Beach Villas – Villa 1

Tawantok Beach Villas – Villa 1

Thailand » Koh Samui » Lipa Noi

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, seating in the 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!
