Villas in Thailand

Without doubt, Thailand is one of the world’s most enchanting holiday destinations, marked by the fact that the same visitors grace it over and over again. The reason? Soft white palm-scattered beaches lapped by a warm turquoise sea; a clear blue ocean home to colourful coral reefs and a vivacity of mesmerising marine life; lush northern hills and mountains ripe for exploring outdoors; fabulous temples both old and new; some of Asia’s most exuberant festivals; and of course, the country’s fresh-as-you-like feisty cuisine. Boasting something for everyone, Thailand offers bags of appeal.

It’s of little surprise that most of Thailand’s villas are concentrated in the sunny wave-lapped isles of Phuket and Koh Samui. Phuket rose meteorically to fame some years back and now has an international airport, restaurants run by celebrity chefs, world-class golf courses and a cosmopolitan grandeur that have made it a synonym for The Tropical Good Life around the planet. Samui is subtler in its endeavours but its natural topography and raw beauty make it an unforgettable holiday isle. Cultural Chiang Mai, in the north, is completely different yet again; rugged hills carpeted in lush jungle beg you to seek out its treasures on foot, or better still, atop an elephant’s back.

Thailand's variable geography is mirrored by its climate, which is very much affected by the monsoons. Both Phuket and Samui are generally rain-free from late December to April whilst the rainy season is June through November. The cool season (November – February) is one of the best times to visit. March to May sees the temperature reach the mid-30s.

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 is clearly proud to be part of the Ban Suriya experience and the live-in manager 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.

Villa Borimas

Villa Borimas

Thailand » Phuket » Surin

We couldn’t have picked a better place for our family vacation than Villa Borimas. It is cosy, peaceful and close to some fantastic beach clubs and great restaurants. But the best part was the villa staff team, who were all very friendly and warm. The views are magical, the villa overlooks the sea and the coastline, and every sunset was a spectacle to be enjoyed from a different spot each night - the poolside, the balconies, the moon deck, our bedroom, everywhere really!

Besides the amazing views, another advantage of being so high up was complete tranquillity. Traffic can get noisy in the village of Surin, but we couldn’t hear a thing from our lofty position. Our trip was all about putting our feet up. We spent a lot of time relaxing on the outdoor decks, in and around the pool, getting massages, reading or just talking with each other.

We had a delicious breakfast every day, enjoyed poolside under the shade of the pergola, and requested the chef to craft a few dinners for us when we didn’t want to go out. The food was always presented beautifully and was very tasty. On my husband’s birthday, we organised a barbecue up on the moon deck which he insists was one of his best birthday celebrations ever.

The living space is stylish and tasteful and there was plenty of room for everyone in our group. We will definitely be back!

Villa Chada

Villa Chada

Thailand » Phuket » Kamala

We have stayed in luxury accommodation plenty of times before, but we have to say that Villa Chada is amongst our absolute favourites. The landscaped gardens are fantastic, the lawns are neat, the lotus ponds swarm with colourful fish as gargoyles stare fiercely, and frangipani and bougainvillea trees give colour and scent. It really is a tropical garden oasis.

We spent most of our time in the infinity pool, it’s big enough to exercise and overlooks the ocean, and is surrounded by tall tropical trees. If we weren’t in the pool, we could be found lounging on the sunbeds, soaking up the rays. Early evenings were spent on the daybed gazing out at the ocean and not doing a lot apart from listening to nature’s sounds that one misses in hectic city life. We saw colourful longtail fishing boats pass by, and one day, to our delight, a monitor lizard hurrying for cover on the cliffs below.

We did have a small tussle over who would stay in the master suite as it has the best views and a great wraparound terrace, but it really didn’t matter as all the suites have fantastic views and with three bathtubs to choose from to bubble up, we were more than happy.

The villa staff is friendly and discreet. The food was amazing, Thai cuisine with suggestions from our very own private chef. They even ran out to the local store to buy us some wine on request. Apart from the TV, there isn’t much in the way of entertainment so bring a book or two and enjoy well-earned tranquility. There’s plenty to do outside the villa, we spent one afternoon at the luxury Andara Resort, enjoying the fine dining experience and watching children take part in cookery classes.

Villa Chi Samui

Villa Chi Samui

Thailand » Koh Samui » Mae Nam

We’d seen the photos on the website but nothing prepares you for the sight that greets you on arrival at this lovely villa. The view is breathtaking, the sea is just so blue, and the islands of Koh Phangan and Angthong seem to hover on the horizon like some mystical mirage.

And then there’s the fine white sandy beach and coconut palms, hundreds of them, and gardens filled with fragrant frangipani and exotic plants, it's quite simply a slice of paradise.

It's hard to tear yourself away from the view but the villa itself is modern, stylish and inviting, and the staff welcoming. Once we were comfortably settled into our rooms, it was time to explore all that was on offer.

We loved lounging in the living area, with its glass walls and sea views. Breakfast was always a pleasure, served on the black stone breakfast bar, definitely a great spot to kick off the day or fix yourself a sunset cocktail before you head for the beachside terrace.

Which leads me to the beachfront terrace. What an absolute delight. Strewn with outdoor woven sofas and a matching dining table, sun loungers and a covered massage sala - this is where we spent most of our time. When the beach got hot, a dip in our personal pool or jacuzzi would cool us off.

The great thing about this villa is that it's almost all on one level. Glass doors and windows can be opened up to create one expansive living space which seems to catch the cool sea breeze and is perfect for parties.

And yes, let me confess that we were spoilt rotten by the in-villa chef. Thai masterpieces were served to us, one after the other, and left us never wanting to leave the villa. This is an idyllic spot to completely kick back, relax and recharge with family or friends.

Dhevatara Cove - Baan Rattana Thep

Dhevatara Cove - Baan Rattana Thep

Thailand » Koh Samui » Lipa Noi

It's rare to feel the spirit of history on a modern-day holiday island like Koh Samui, especially staying in a brand new, luxury villa. But Baan Rattana Thep soon transported us back to the colonial era. The architecture and fittings may be state-of-the-art, and certainly add to the extravagant experience, but it’s the carefully chosen art and artefacts that inspire you, bringing to mind learned pursuits such as poetry, philosophical conversation and an appreciation of fine wine.

There's plenty of space and opportunity for less cerebral activities too. You can fritter away the days lazing by the pool, lounging in the garden or relaxing on your bedroom terrace just enjoying the surroundings. Add to that TVs in virtually every room, hooked up to satellite and DVDs players, not to mention a villa-wide sound system, and you're never without options for holiday distraction.

It's unlikely you will want to venture out for meals either with a private chef on hand to prepare a range of delectable Thai and western dishes from a varied suggestion menu (ingredients on guest account). But if you do get itchy taste buds, the villa manageress will happily recommend options both in nearby Lipa Noi or Taling Ngam, even further afield if you don't mind the drive.

Staying within a development, albeit in high-walled privacy, offers opportunities to socialise with the neighbours and the beachside dining sala (gazebo) is great place to entertain. A heavy set of wooden gates actually connects through to the villa next door and renting two of the Dhevatara Cove properties would definitely create an impressive private wedding or party venue.

Baan Rattana Thep is a versatile property with a character of its own that makes you feel fortunate from the moment you enter its bounteous grounds.
