A LUXURIOUS 3 BEDROOM VILLA WITH FABULOUS VIEWS OVER THE SEA

Ban Tai beach Villa Rental Photos and Description

Own infinity pool with jacuzzi. Fully equipped, plenty of sitting areas and spac

Villa Nirvana is a beautiful villa set in the hills of the private Santi Thani Estate. The villa has been cleverly designed to incorporate a wealth of advantages including light, airy rooms, cool dispersal of breezes throughout the house, stunning views over the Gulf of Siam, plenty of different areas for people to sit and relax and a general feeling of ease.

It is a very welcoming villa and is extremely popular with people who have visited in the past, as can be witnessed from the many enthusiastic 'write ups' in the guest books. There are stunning unspoilt beaches minutes away from the villa by car. On these beaches there are several restaurants serving both delicious Thai and International food.

There are also food and clothes shops, open markets and supermarkets within 10 minutes of the villa.

Whether you are looking for a quiet 'chill out' holiday, romance or sporting fun, you will find that the villa supports your mood and is always a welcome home to walk into.

Restaurants: There are many excellent Restaurants on the island from the cuisine of hotels and sophisticated continental restaurants to the many smaller restaurants and the Thai restaurants. Just at the bottom of the hill you will find several beach restaurants serving both International and Thai food. These are excellent for breakfast, lunch or dinner or will serve you with take away food if you just want to chill out at home.

In the small town of Maenam there are Italian Restaurants as well as Thai Restaurants on the Beach.

In the villa you will find Restaurant guides, but if you don't want to go far you can go to the fisherman's village of Bophut 12 minutes away where you will find a wonderful selection of restaurants and bars, some with live music and most stay open until the early hours.

Golf /Tennis/Activities: Golf.

The Santiburi golf club is a challenging 72 par course. It is about 10 minutes away from the villa. You can play 'twilight' there after 3.00pm for a reduced rate. It is worth getting there early enough for a beer and a club sandwich in the impressive clubhouse and then hitting practice balls before your tee off time. Also it is certainly worth doing a bit of putting on the practice green. The greens are like quicksilver and hard to read! You can hire clubs.

Tennis.

The Santiburi Hotel has floodlit Tennis Courts and you can book these. We like to play early in the morning, but have played in the evenings and then used their smart changing rooms for showers and gone on out for the evening. You can hire rackets and balls.

Windsurfing.

The Zazen Hotel just past Maenam has windsurfers for hire, as do several of the Hotels locally and in the Town of Chaweng.

Spas, Massage and Yoga: There are many excellent Spas on the island.

Several of the smaller boutique spas are also worth a visit, and we can arrange massage for you at the villa.

There are several Thai massage spas in Maenam (less than ten minutes away from the villa) and you will find information about these at the villa. In many of these you can also get manicures, pedicures and beauty treatments. There are also two well know Spas within four minutes of the villa, one of which we have discount arrangements for Villa Nirvana Guests.

We are a family of six with three grandchildren.

We live in Somerset in South West England in the country.

We play golf and spend alot of time trying to get to grips with our garden!

We try to get out to the villa twice a year but normally only go once a year in February/ March.

The kids all try to get out there as often as they can as do friends.

Julia Skinner purchased this villa in 2005

Quite simply, we went on holiday to Koh Samui to meet our daughter in her gap year, and we fell in love with the island.

I looked up properties for sale when I got home and it went from there!

I flew out for three days to see propertioes, but as soon as I saw Villa Nirvana, I knew it was the one for us.

The villa has fabulous views and is incredibly peaceful. Guests all comment on how much they love the villa and how it is impossible not to completely unwind there.

There is a lovely sense of space and calm at the villa. In fact several guests have said that the only problem they had there was dragging themselves away from the vila to see other parts of the island!

We stayed with our two year old son three weeks in this beautiful villa according to photos. It is very well located, quiet. The garden is very beautiful, clean. There are no mosquitoes. We highly recommend this villa which has no disadvantages but only advantages.

Reviewed January 7, 2014 This is a really beautiful property high up in the hills in the north of the island. The views from the villa are fantastic and Julia, the owner, and staff on site looked after us fantastically helping us to arrange excursions and answering our questions. This villa is not in a resort and the road to reach it is not for the faint-hearted. Unlike the rest of Thailand taxi drivers in Samui do not operate on meters and there seems to be some reticence when you ask them to take you to Santi Thani ( the area where the villa is located). I would strongly recommend hiring a four by four for your stay. Not only to get back to the villa but to be able to reach the better parts of the island.

The villa itself has everything you need from board games to a good selection of books and DVDs so that you can really relax and unwind. The decoration is lovely and you can arrange to have dinner cooked for you and massages by the pool. When we arrived the welcome pack with coffee, tea, fruit, eggs and bread was a huge help.

There are outstanding and cheap no frills seafood restaurants along a narrow strip of beach when you turn left at the bottom of the hill (Bang Po). turning right out of Santi Thani and going east there is a fun night market on Thursday at Maenam and Friday at Bophut fisherman's village, the latter having nice shops, and more mid range restaurants.

A really lovely place we will definitely go back.

Villa Nirvana

We stayed at Villa Nirvana for almost two weeks in early January and loved every minute of it! Julia was exceptionally wonderful to correspond with, the house was absolutely lovely and comfortable, and the house manager was very sweet and helpful and became an instant friend. We hired the chefs several times and really enjoyed the delicious Thai food they cooked, but our children thought the pool was the best part. The property is far enough away from the hubbub to feel extremely peaceful, but close enough to easily go for a day or an evening out. Our only regret was that we did not stay longer!

3 week holiday in Villa Nirvana

  • Submitted: Sep 11, 2013
  • Stayed: Jul 2013
My family has just returned from a fantastic three weeks at Villa Nirvana and I am already looking forward to my next visit. We arrived at night and were greeted at the airport by our own personal mini van and driver. As we swooped into the hilltop driveway of the villa my children whooped with joy as the villa was majestic, perched on a hilltop overlooking the sea with views overlooking the islands of Ang Thong National Park, a view one could never tire of. Inside the villa is comfortable and inviting with a grand staircase and a vaulted roof in the hallway, virtually every aspect of the villa has views to die for. Many photos of sunsets and molten skies were taken from the bedroom balconies. The pool is simply amazing with stunning views once again and very hard to drag yourself away from. The children had a wonderful time practically jumping in in their PJ's the minute they got up. On a practical note the doors from villa to pool can be locked if traveling with small children who need constant supervision around water. The property is managed by a very efficient team who have an office at the bottom of the hill. As if by magic Au appeared on her moped the first morning of our arrival to make sure we had everything we needed, the fab Toyota Hillux ( which proved invaluable for getting round the island) arrived on the driveway. A team of masseuse ladies arrived to ease away our aches and pains with aroma massages under the sala by the pool! On top of all this Au had arranged for the fridge to be filled ( at local cost ) with wine, Singa beer (very welcome when arriving in the evening after a long flight) and our list of groceries. The team also provide complimentary flowers, juice, milk, bread etc, enough to see you through breakfast. Everywhere was kept spotlessly clean by a team of cleaners who visited twice a week and who would also take your dirty washing and return it washed and ironed ( for a small charge). Brand new washing machine in the utility room above the garage. The villa is situated in a less touristy area of Koh Samui and so transport is essential. As the villa is reached by very steep roads ( incredibly picturesque however ) , I strongly recommend a car and not a moped. This can be booked through Emma (manager) for a very reasonable price. The Toyota Hillux we hired coped very well with the hills and enabled us to travel round the island and get off the beaten track. We found many beautiful beaches this way. Thanks again Julia!! Xx

I am very grateful to you for taking the time to write this review.
