6-bedroom Villas in Bophut, Koh Samui, Thailand

In recent years Bophut has become synonymous with 'Fisherman's Village' as the once sleepy traditional Thai fishing community of wooden clapperboard houses, has morphed into an exciting and sometimes extremely busy shopping, dining and nightlife destination.

Located on the north-east coast just 10-15 minutes' drive to the international airport, Bophut is home to some of the island's leading resorts such as the Anantara and Hansar Beach while the original Fisherman's Village has been extended to incorporate a new shopping mall and outdoor market area and parking, as well as a number of chic new restaurants and bars, with fun seating on the beach and featuring nighttime entertainment such as fire eaters and attracting a young and vibrant crowd.

Fisherman's Village is also the scene of the island's biggest night market. Every Friday evening, as well as on certain holidays, literally hundreds of vendors set up shop to offer everything from Thai and international street food and snacks, to chic fashions, electronics and local souvenirs. The atmosphere is buzzing and an absolute must-visit for locals and tourists alike.

Meanwhile, the village's traditional shops offer massages, tailoring, locally produced fashions, handicrafts and much more. And the restaurant scene has become an attraction in its own right, with numerous cool cafes and bars, as well as establishments serving a huge choice of local seafood on the barbecue, Italian, Australian and American cuisine.

Panacea Retreat - Praana Residence

Panacea Retreat - Praana Residence

Thailand » Koh Samui » Bophut

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 the in-villa massage. 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.

Suralai

Suralai

Thailand » Koh Samui » Bophut

Villa Suralai is an exquisite villa. The views are superb – each of the bedrooms has full-length glass doors and excellent terraces. The swimming pool is fantastic (despite some minor calcification) with comfy sun loungers and the gazebo is a great place to relax and escape the heat of the day. The finish and thought which have gone into the villa makes it one of the best on Koh Samui although it would be nice to see a bit more colour and homely warm in the décor. During our stay, the villa manager was charming, knowledgeable and helpful to the extreme, more than making up for the simple English of the other staff. The chef turned out some awesome Thai meals and we understand he can produce a reasonable selection of western dishes too – do mention how hot you like your food though, Thais do like their spices! (Note the management company have a team of chefs so they do rotate a bit, all the chefs we used were excellent.) Don’t bother with shopping and provisioning – let the chef do it, you will pay 30% for the handling cost plus a government tax but it keeps you out of the supermarket which has to be a good thing while on holiday. An excellent villa for a group or family (see surprises), a superb party or wedding pad or perfect for a corporate retreat.
