Villa Emerald is installed with free Fibre Optic wifi.
The guests have sole private use of the Villa where my Team and I are on hand should you need assistance or advice.
All towels and linen provided. The villa is cleaned every 3 days, with change of clean bed linen and towels also every 3 days.
Complimentary pick-up for guests from the airport, ferry terminal or your hotel on the island to Villa Emerald, and a return journey (one in each direction).
The use of a car or moped is the easiest way to get around. The Villa is located in the quieter part of Koh Samui, unlike the busy north of the island. Villa Emerald has outstanding ocean views and where you have this, you have a hill to climb. The villa is positioned in an outstandingly beautiful location, and is a 250 mtr length of steep hill from the entrance at Sitara Retreat. We therefore strongly recommend the use of the complimentary four wheel drive; or if you are both very confident riders, two mopeds, which we can provide for you in your rental price, and have waiting at the villa on your arrival.
It is a condition of Sitara Retreat that if you use a car it will need to be a four wheel drive. Once you have booked we can arrange the complimentary, automatic 4 x 4 Suzuki Vitara for your use during your stay at Villa Emerald.
With the villa being located in a quieter part of the island, driving can be a more pleasurable experience. To go to the beach, restaurants, local attractions etc, we recommend using the complimentary vehicle which we provide for you with this booking. If you do not feel a confident driver and do not wish to make use of the car, there are several private hire car companies (of which we can give you telephone numbers so that you can make your own arrangements) that can pick you up at the entrance of Sitara, which is a 4 or 5 minute walk down the hill. Should you decide to use the private hire facility this will be at your own cost.
There is private parking for a vehicle at the Villa, via steps up to the top car park.
Here in the south of the island where Villa Emerald is located, it still has the feel on Koh Samui of over 20 years ago, unlike the north of the island. We are frequently told by guests they find the Thai people in this southern part of the island extremely hospitable, and welcoming. In the north where it is far more crowded and touristy on the island there is not always the opportunity to discover the true warmth and charm of the local people. Within 5-10 drive from the Villa there is the charming area of Laem Sett, with fine restaurants serving delicious Thai and European food, small coffee shop, several mini-marts for your daily needs, several laundry shops, couple of small garden bars, two well reputed massage shops, taxi services and a local travel agency. Within this area there is also local Laem Sett beach, which is quiet and secluded. Here one can enjoy and admire a beautiful sunset, and see the local fishermen with their long tailed boats come into shore. Located on the beach is the rustic Thai style Cool Bar when you can enjoy good food and a drink whilst soaking up the tranquil atmosphere. Also close by is Sha Sha Resort, Centara Villas Resort and Samui Orchid which opens its doors to non residents and has many facilities to enjoy, including smart restaurants and bars. Less than 10 mins away by car you have the fishing village of Baan Hua Thanon where fresh fish, fruit and vegetables are sold daily at the local market and also the home of several small local shops, a doctors surgery, 24 hour Seven-Eleven grocery shop with ATM and a Chinese Temple. Lamai is a beach side tourist town a 10 min drive from the Villa. There are many shops lining the streets offering locally made souvenirs and clothes. When the sun goes down the streets come alive with lights and music from the night market and variety of bars while the restaurants serve excellent Thai and western dishes in the town and on the beach. Thai boxing is also popular and Lamai has its own professional and amateur boxing ring. Nearby to the villa many of the island's main attractions are less than 10 mins drive away, which include Namsuang Waterfalls, Crocodile Farm, Aquarium, Tiger Zoo, Butterfly Garden, Elephant trekking, The Grandmother Grandfather Rocks, horse riding, water sports, Thai cookery classs, a snake farm and many temples, amongst others. Just remember nowhere on the island is more than 35 minutes away.
Please note that no additional guests other than those who have booked to stay at the villa are permitted to stay overnight.
We have been awarded Superhost status and the Certificate of Excellence for Villa Emerald and also for each of my 7 additional villas on Koh Samui.
