About Jean Charles Sermeth
I wish I could be in Koh Samui more often :)
Jean Charles Sermeth purchased this Villa in 2011
Why Jean Charles Sermeth chose Mae Nam
There are not many places where it is possible to relax along side a beautiful, safe and however unspoiled beach, and at the same time being near of all restaurants and entertainment places that Koh Samui can offer
What makes this Villa unique
The quasi private beach, the beautiful pool surrounded by tropical trees and flowers, the outdoor Jacuzzi, the nice and cheap authentic restaurants on the beach. This is our little paradise corner.

Nice and quiet accomendation
We liked the place and enjoyed the stay. Very tidy and clean, with a very nice pool. we are used to "taking care ourselves" so we did not talk to the staff very much. Within 15 min there are many very nice dining places. We did not use the Beach very much as it did not was suited for swimming
Mae Nam Villa
Very nice cozy property. Liked that it is very quiet. The pool on the property is great.
Thank you so much for your review and we hope to see all of you back again!
Best in Samui
The location and all the amenities were perfect.
The pool was lovely, the beach and morning sunrises were fantastic!
Our family loved it and were made very welcome.
Thanks for a great stay!
Really glad we've made a great holiday for both you and your family. Hope to see all of you back again soon!
A great vacation
So we stayed at Villa Palm for three weeks, and it was awesome. The house is located in a very calm area, not many people on the beach and that's nice. I had very good comunication with Rachel the whole time, both before the trip and while we were there. My hat off to Jenny who helped us with everything we needed. We will definitely come back again.
Thank you again Johan for staying with us and taking the time to write us a review. Really looking forward to having you both back again next year!
The owner was always responsive to our communications, from our initial email and throughout our stay. The Villa is 2 bedrooms upstairs, each with their own bath. There is also a half bath downstairs. There are A/C units in each bedroom and in the living area. The kitchen has all of the appliances and items necessary to prepare meals, and there is a dishwasher for cleanup.
The unit has a washing machine but clothes will have to be dried outside. ( was not a problem). There is a laundry service available.
They come to clean the living room and kitchen every day, and the entire apartment is cleaned every 3 days( clean towels and change of sheets) There are Tv's in each room with cable, however, English channels are limited. There are enough for the short time you will be in the Villa .
There is a very nice shared pool, but we stayed for 3 weeks and never saw more than 3 or 4 people. The beach is a short walk from the Villa and the Pool- very private beach, not crowded. Waves are usually very small, sandy beach and sand in the shallow water, however, there are quite a few rocks as you walk into deeper water.( recommend wearing water shoes)
We had a couple of maintenance issues with Washing machine and dish washer, however, the people at the office took care of them all very quickly.
If you don't rent a car, you can get transportation by taxi ( using an app called "navigo" - it works in all of Thailand. There are vans for hire that will take you places and wait, the most reliable and reasonable one that we found was Mr Phimol Pongruea (Kamol).
When you don’t want to go out to eat or cook, there is a small restaurant(Local, not fancy) across the street for a dinner and they will bring it to the villa if you go order. Right behind is a Bakery- that has rolls and will make a pizza for you which is good. There is a restaurant within walking distance, if you want more choices, at "The Sea" hotel about 1 KM to the left as you come to the Main Street when exiting the Villa.
There are many great restaurants on Koh Samui but try Hemingway's on the Beach, and take their cooking class From Jaa. It is on the south side of the island at Thong Krut .
We definitely recommend this Villa and would absolutely stay again.
Stunning Quiet Hideaway
We stayed at the villa with our 3 teenage boys for 16 nights. The villa is absolutely stunning , spacious & very clean.
The villa is cleaned daily & every 3 days with bedding & towel changes inc beach towels.
The onsite office helps with anything you may need , taxis , trips etc.
The area is just lovely , its away from the throng of Cherwang & Liami , there are some wonderful beachside restaurants a short walk away either up the beach or the road.
The 5 of us regularly ate out for around £40 total , inc a few rounds of drinks and plenty of food with priceless views of the sun sets.
There is a Family Mart & 7/11 within walking distance too.
The villa is an oasis of calm, we used the communal pool everyday and met and made friends with other families that were staying in the other villas , its total safe & there are staff around all of the day.
The Beach is only a stones throw from the villa , its stunning ! Its not a great swimming beach as its quite rocky & shallow in parts but the boys loved to snorkel to see the fishes and they used the kayaks too. Just a few mins walk either side of the villa you'll find wonderful Thai massage huts which is the best way to spend a relaxing hour in the heat listening to the waves on the beach !! BLISS !
Its also a great base for exploring the island , we hired a car for 10 days and saw lots & had some wonderful experiences ...the highlight was visiting the Samui Elephant Sanctuary, PLEASE PLEASE stay away from the elephant trekking that still goes on on the island ... visit them in a happy place where they are loved and cared for.
Thank you Rachel for your wonderful booking communications & for arranging airport collection which was waiting on our arrival.
I have nothing but positive feedback for not only the villa but the area of Bang Por & Koh Samui ... we have the most wonderful holiday.
Thank you x
It is so wonderful to hear about the great time you and your family have spent with us as well as of the island, and this makes us really happy too!
You have been so kind and communications with you have been so easy too, we really hope that you will visit us again!
All our best wishes to you and family,
The wonderful Bang Por Beach is located on the north side of Koh Samui Island. This area offers a tranquil retreat, wonderful views of Koh Phangan, and snorkeling at less than 100 meters from the beach over the Coral barrier.
Bang Por is 5 minutes away from Nathon capital town or from Maenam and the Santiburi championship golf course on the other side, ten minutes away from Bophut - Fishermen Village’s exotic shop houses, numerous bars and restaurants lining the sea shore.
The area is not as crowded as Chaweng and Lamai but if you want the maximum action, it's only 20 and 30 minutes away.
