Our favorite spot in Thailand!

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 4 couples in our late 50's who spent a total of 3 weeks in Thailand - this was our favorite spot! Zu was very helpful right from our first contact, even going so far as to call a few weeks in advance to ask about things we wanted to do and what was important to us about our stay so that she could recommend activities or locations we might want to visit. She even went so far as to offer to research the availability of special food for my husband.

Jai and Dhoy were amazing!! They were both so sweet and went out of their way to make us feel welcome and comfortable. We decided to hire them to cook dinner for us as well - the food was delicious, as good as we had anywhere else in Thailand. They also did grocery shopping for us, provided directions to a tour company that was picking us up for a day on the water and drove us to a silver shop so we could do some shopping. They even arranged for us to have massages at the house which was a great luxury.

The house was beautiful. The grounds are colorful and very lush. We had been at a VRBO in Phuket before coming to Koh Samui. That house was very large and grand. Our group agreed that we enjoyed this home more because it had a much more intimate feel, everyone was closer together and it was more focused on outdoor living. The beds were comfortable (VERY important to me) and the outdoor showers were great - so nice to look up at the blue sky and palm trees. The beach is great for walking and watching the fishermen.

Overall, I can't say enough about how much we enjoyed our 5 nights at this house. If we were to return to Thailand, we would definitely stay here again.

A real good time

  • 4 of 5

There would be so many good things to say about this villa, which I will summarize.

The view : wonderful

The pool : very pleasant

The staff : amazing et so helpful

The rooms : as a 4 star hotel

The Food/the cooker : delicious

The owner : always very nice and caring

The beach : cleaned every day, thanks god ! The only problem is that in our period there is no more than 40 inches of water over 1 miles away. Forget about swimming in the sea, but you can take a Kayak an enjoy it further.

The Kayak : at your disposal, you can enjoy the mangroves around, so quiet and nice. We had a great time. Thanks.

Laem Set in the southern part of the island is where you can still enjoy the original beauty of this paradise island and Samui's most scenic beaches, lined with groves of coconut trees leaning against huge granite boulders that add to the beauty and create many small, peaceful beach coves.

The island experiences varied tidal ranges around the year, from November through to March high tide is during the day and low tide all night, the reversal tidal changes are May to September. Our villa is set at a secluded almost private beach of Laem Set bay. In the cooler season the shoreline is pushed almost to the edge of the wide flat beach at the front of the villa, whereas in summer the shallow water makes the beach perfect for families with small children, beach games or exploring of the beautiful surroundings.

CONVENIENCE STORES & RUSTIC RESTAURANTS

Close to the villa, are numerous convenience stores of 7/11 or Family Mart as well as boutique restaurants where you can enjoy authentic local cuisine.

Magic Alambic Rum Distillery home to Koh Samui's best home-grown rum, is located on the way to Thong Krut, 3 minutes from the villa and run by French Management, the on-site French restaurant (La Route du Rum) serving authentic and French food and worth a visit for evening dinner or Sunday Brunch by the pool

TONG KRUT: The beautiful fisherman’s village of Thong Krut set along a peaceful shallow-water bay, is just 7 to 10 minutes’ drive from the villa, with numerous open air beach hut restaurants serving Thai, or French and Italian cuisine, all with glorious views of the peaceful waters of the Gulf of Siam, and facing Koh Tan and Koh Madsum, some examples are:

• French Kiss Thanod is one example of a picture-perfect restaurant in Tong Krut, and facing Koh Tan and Koh Madsum.

• Nuch's Green Talay For authentic Thai Food (Isaan) owned and managed by a long time American resident who always gives his full attention.

Lamai town boasts an endless selection of restaurants, bars and entertainment as well as a beautiful beach, water-sports and plenty of deck chairs and vendors. Lamai is a 10 to 15 minutes drive from the villa. On route is Makro hypermarket for a variety of branded groceries products, and further up is Tesco Lotus, next to it is probably one of the more popular market for fresh groceries

The hustle and bustle and buzzing hot spots of Chaweng are within 30 minutes for local shops, dancing the night away.
