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.
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.
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 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.
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.
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!
The town of Nathon is ten minutes drive from the house where you can go to local markets and find clothes shops, arts and crafts stores as well as chemists and a Tesco store.
Ten minutes in the opposite direction there is the small town of Maenam where there are many restaurants and small shops as well as the Maenam beach on which there are plenty of bars and restaurants. There are also fresh food markets here as well as small supermarkets where you can buy most essentials.
The nearest night spot to the villa is the fisherman’s village of Bophut (15 minutes drive) which is full of bars, restaurants and shops. Bohput stays open until the early hours.
The Santiburi Golf Course is under 10 minutes away as is the Santiburi Hotel where you can play tennis and shower before having a cocktail on the beach.
In the villa you will find information about all the things you can do and see as well as restaurants and previous guest’s tips for a good holiday in the guest book
