“Serenity in paradise”

Do yourself a favour...don't ask if you can afford this place, ask if you can afford to miss it. If you are looking for peace, beauty and luxury, this is the place. Built in the classic indoor/outdoor style of walled, compound living, this villa is a jewel nestled high in the jungle hills above Bophut.

Everything you could want or need is available to you as far as daily requirements, but add to these the private pool, the tranquil outdoor sala, the excellent outdoor speaker system, the super-comfy beds, the outdoor tubs and shower, the wonderful decor and foliage, and you are in heaven.

The owner, even via email, is welcoming and charming, and Oh, who manages the house, is very helpful and attended to our few small requests swiftly and efficiently.

You will need to arrange transportation as walking into the village is a very steep journey which is punishing in the heat. Rob's warnings about renting a scooter as opposed to a car should be heeded. If you are not an experienced motorcycle driver and you are not experienced with Asian road rules (or lack of them) you will be happier (and safer) with a car.

The one problem with the villa is that it is so welcoming, so tranquil and comfortable that you won't want to leave. It's very easy to pass a day lounging around the pool, especially if the monsoons are rolling in and you don't want to get trapped in town in the rain - the neighborhood frogs will warn you of any upcoming rainy spells! But do yourself a favour, explore this beautiful island and meet some of the warm and friendly Thai people.

What a fantastic review. Thank you!

I want to point out that Bophut Village/Bophut Beach and the main Ring Road is an easy 4 to 5 minute drive from the villa on a two lane paved road and 75% of the drive is flat---no hill at all. Just the last minute of the 4 to 5 minute drive gets steeper (hence, it's a view home!). This is not a big deal if you're in a car---as it's a very safe road that's easy to drive--no cliffs or anything like that---it's just steeper the last minute of the drive--and this is not as much fun if you're walking and it's hot---hence we always recommend you rent a vehicle (on Samui---we always recommend you rent a car versus a motorcycle---it's much safer)

Thanks again for the great review.

Thank you for your comments. We too feel it's fabulous. Note we have two bedroom wings---each with ensuite bathrooms and each slightly different. And glad you like the artwork---we went out of our way to find interesting and original pieces.
