Luxury Sea View Villa With Private Pool



Updated: 09-Oct-2016
Villa in Plai Laem, Bophut, Koh Samui, Thailand - Secluded Location Overlooking Gulf Of Thailand

This villa is simply stunning. It benefits from a secluded position in the north east tip of Samui, yet is conveniently situated close to the airport and major tourist attractions, making it ideal for groups looking for a touch of luxury but wanting to maintain a level of seclusion. Accommodation comprises: 4 en-suite bedrooms all with air conditioning: Large open-plan lounge with views across the infinity edge pool to the bay beyond: 2nd lounge and TV room in downstairs apartment: Fully fitted European kitchen with granite work surfaces: Sun terrace and sala with separate fridge, shower, wc and outdoor dining area. The villa benefits from 24 hour security and ease of access with ample parking provision. It benefits from "passive cooling" in the living and kitchen areas to keep cool without using air-conditioning. The west facing aspect of this villa overlooking the Gulf of Siam towards the Ang Thong Marine Park provides some of the most spectacular sunsets on the island.

About the Owner

We are a family of four and we live in England with our various pets. My wife and I both work, but have spent most of our holidays over the last few years in various parts of Asia. We especially love Samui, where we have made many friends and have really fallen in love with it and the surrounding islands.

Very nice sea view Villa in an exklusive Gates Community

  • 5 of 5

The Villa is exactly as described by Ann. The view down to Buddha Beach is breathraking. The area is calm and secure within a dozen of exclusive houses and Appartments. The airport is nearby, but since there are not many starts and landings, it was for us not a problem. The house is very well maintained. Many well thought through details and the equipment of the house shows, that it was constructed for an owner who expects very high standards. The house is spacious and provides 3 comfortable bed rooms with luxurious bath rooms en suite. We were 6 people and everyone of us had his private space, since the house is pretty large and there is a nice sala with views down to the bay.

The pool is large, very clean and offers great west wards sunset views without any obstacles in front.

The house is managed by a very caring lady who lives also within the gated community and the owner Aen is responding at any time and did everything to make our stay as comfortable as possible.

Overall I can HIGHLY RECOMMEND this house. Please consider that you need a car, but Aen can also help you well with that topic.

The perfect holiday destination

  • 5 of 5

Where do you start - ideal location, fantastic property - beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean.

The owner arranged our car hire which was waiting for us on arrival at the airport, 10 minutes later we arrived at the villa and were met by the local manager.

The villa has everything you need and is perfect as a relaxing getaway comfortably sleeping 6 in the main villa, with space for more in the additional apartment downstairs.

The master bedroom is to die for ! - Stunning

Pool is big enough for a good swim as well as to cool down in and an ideal spot to watch the sun set in the evening.

We will definately be going back and would recommend without hesitation

From the Owner

It's hard not to fall in love with Samui and the surrounding islands like Koh Phan-Ngan and Koh Tao. They really are a tropical island paradise. We decided to take the plunge in 2006 and bought a little slice of hillside jungle overlooking Big Buddha beach and out towards the Marine Park. The building was finally completed at the end of 2008. Because the villa is in a secluded spot on the headland, there is no through traffic. It really is a tranquil, secluded spot. Yet within minutes you can be in the hustle and bustle of Chaweng or strolling through Fisherman's Market.

Hopefully the photo's on this site and on our website will give you a good idea of the villa and setting it is in. None of them are taken by professionals or doctored in any way...just me and my camera, to be fair it's impossible to do the views justice with a camera and my skills, I hope they give you a little taste of what the villa and Samui are like.
