Thailand was once a well-kept secret. Now, the secret’s out! From amazing cultural festivals in Chiang Mai to the North, incredibly colorful scuba diving in the Surin and Similan Islands to the West and gorgeous Koh Samui to the East, it’s guaranteed that you’ll never be bored or lacking beauty here.
As the majority of the world is headed into autumn, and I’m dreaming of bypassing winter coats for warm days spent on sandy beaches. These five amazing villas in Koh Samui have me fighting the urge to book a flight right now!
5 villas inspiring wanderlust in Koh Samui
Sunrise Mountain Villa
With nine bedrooms, and a capacity of 18 guests, it’s time to invite everyone to the Sunrise Mountain Villa!
Laze in a lounge chair or cool off in the infinity pool with views of perfectly turquoise water. When it’s time to come inside, take advantage of the fully equipped kitchen, entertainment and common spaces. Don’t worry about breakfast, though! A daily breakfast feast is included.
The nearest beach is a six-minute drive away, but three full-time staff and a villa manager are happy to assist with helping you set up transportation or day trips.
The only thing beige about this place is the name! Ok, and technically the decorating pallette. But Villa Beige sure isn’t boring!
This four-bedroom, beachfront property houses up to eight people. And with five staff on property, all eight guests are sure to feel pampered.
A private chef makes a lavish Thai or Western breakfast each morning. Afterwards, make use of the private gym or request a massage and spa appointment.
If I stayed here? You could find me at the infinity pool enjoying the panoramic views or making use of the outdoor seating area.
The Tranquil Villa offers an escape from the real world, nestled in the midst of tropical foliage on Chaweng Hill.
The villa sprawls over three levels, and with a pool table and a mini theater with reclining chairs, it’s a perfect place to play and relax together with your travel companions.
Step out onto the terrace on the second floor and enjoy an infinity-edge private swimming pool overlooking the vegetation, mountains, and the ocean in the distance.
Villa Malouna is a stunning beachfront retreat. Just a few steps from the villa will land you in the water, where you can snorkel out to a gorgeous coral reef. Hop from the ocean and land in a luxurious infinity pool. I can imagine that more than a few cocktails have been enjoyed in the sunken pool lounge.
Six luxurious bedrooms are tucked away in three pavilions with views of the infinity pool, garden and ocean vistas. The light, bright bedrooms and sleek modern design will ensure you’re in holiday mode in no time.
The communal areas are designed to give you full views of the beach, where you can eat dinner at a 12-person table while watching fishermen at work as the sun sets.
Past guests rated Baan Mika a 10 out of 10 and it’s easy to see why!
Six gorgeous Thai-style pavilions house six bedrooms with semi open-air ensuite bathrooms with tropical showers and/or freestanding bathtubs. And a stunning 12-meter swimming pool stretches the entire length of the villa toward the sea.
While you’ll be tempted to stay at the villa, barbecuing and enjoying dinner al fresco at a 12-person dining table next to the ocean, be sure to get out and explore the area. Koh Samui’s famous Big Buddha statue is just five minutes away by car.
Your stay includes daily breakfast, housekeeping, maintenance as well as security to keep the villa clean and safe. For an additional fee,you can even request a personal chef, massages, babysitting services, and a car.
Of these five villas, which would you most like to book? I could never choose… so in my dreams, I’m spending a week at each!
