Private Villa With Unsurpassed Views Of The Gulf Of Thailand, Private Pool And S



Updated: 02-Dec-2016
Villa in Laem Set, Koh Samui, Thailand - Peaceful Location, 5-10 Mins Drive to Restaurants and Beach, 10 Mins Drive to Lamai.

Villa Serendipity is a captivating delight as shown in Thailand’s equivalent of Home & Garden magazine. The Villa has a sophisticated and romantic atmosphere, with the most amazing ocean views that look over to the mainland over 20 kilometers away. It has 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms, with luxurious and elegant living for a maximum of 8 guests. The villa has its own kidney shape swimming pool, lawn & garden, Yoga Sala and outdoor/indoor kitchens.

Perched on the hill, overlooking the Gulf of Thailand and across from the island’s award winning wellness retreat, Kamalaya, Villa Serendipity provides the perfect place to relax, think, meditate and gather with close friends and family.

The Villa is maintained by Live-in Housekeepers, Kun Big and partner, who reside in the lower level of the Villa.

The use of a new automatic Toyota Fortuner with Satellite Navigation is included in the price for the villa.

Stylish and exquisite, Villa Serendipity captivates guests with a beautiful and splendid welcome to an entrance pond that opens into a magnificent vaulted ceiling space, encompassing a spacious foyer, living area and the dining rooms.

Adjacent to the dining room is the well equipped indoor kitchen and breakfast counter, where international TV news can be caught up, if desired, whilst away from home.

The living pavilion is separated from the second pavilion by a beautifully appointed lawn and garden, with a lovely, infinity edge, kidney shape, swimming pool, where you can relax and enjoy the stunning ocean views.

Reached by a flight of short stairs, the Master Suite is tastefully decorated and includes a study, master bathroom with indoor/outdoor showers and tub, and fabulous views.

The master bathroom opens to a secret garden where you can meditate, or simply admire the views with the tranquil sound of a waterfall and beautiful scent of seasonal flowers. From the secret garden, you can meander through the stunning boulders to a quiet yoga sala.

Below the Master Suite are two superb bedroom suites, each with their own shower garden, and stunning ocean views. Both bedrooms open out to the swimming pool and are all located on the one level. All bedrooms have king size beds, where one bed can be separated into two beds if desired.

The third bedroom, with its own en-suite, is situated on the lower level and has a beautiful ocean view.

A walk down the curved steps, from the main pavilions, is a large Entertainment room with a 55” flat screen TV and sound systems. Next to the entertainment room is the lovely fourth bedroom suite.

As the sun goes down, Villa Serendipity is a wonderfully, magical place with its own lights.

Both the living room and the master bedroom have B&O televisions.

There is WiFi throughout the villa.

A complimentary continental style breakfast is included in your booking. Evening meals, upon request, can be provided by Kun Big where there will be a charge of the cost of food, plus a 15% service charge, together with a small transportation charge.

Kun Big will be ready to delight you with her wonderful Thai home cooking with many of the vegetables and herbs grown in our own garden.

You will find that Villa Serendipity is just perfect for relaxing and enjoying both indoor and outdoor living.

The guests have private use of the Villa where I am on hand should they need assistance or advice.

Prices include the use of a new automatic Toyota Fortuner with Sat Nav, together with complimentary pick-up for guests from the airport or ferry terminal to Villa Serendipity, and a return journey is provided for guests on departure (one in each direction).

The Villa is located in the quieter part of the island, and makes driving a more pleasurable experience. It still has the feel on Koh Samui of over 20 years ago, unlike the north of the island which is more commercialized and crowded.

There is private parking for the vehicle at the Villa.

Please note that no additional guests other than those who have booked to stay at the villa, are permitted to stay overnight. No all males groups allowed. No smoking permitted inside and outside the villa.

About the Owner

I moved to Koh Samui 2005 from Cirencester in the UK, where I had my own Flooring business. I was also involved in property development & rental and converted a large number of various style properties in the UK. From my first visit to Thailand in 1990 I had a growing desire to live in Thailand and create a new challenge. Inspired by opportunity for business I chose Koh Samui.

Moving here, I created 3 properties; Palm View, Butterfly Garden and Hideaway Villa. Later, we completed 3 more villas on the beautiful ocean view, Sitara Retreat, named Villa Crystal, Emerald and Sapphire. We manage Villa Serendipity for a neighbour from Hong Kong.

I have returned to Europe twice in 10 years of living here – 1 day in Milan and 3 days in watch my beloved Spurs in the Champions Leagu

Guestbook comments from the manager

It is a beautiful location with a very stylish and comfortable villa. The staff were charming, helpful and cooked superb thai food. There is plenty of space for everyone to do their own thing. It has all been very well designed even the plants! Only thing to point out that we would strongly recommend a 4 wheel drive vehicle to get up the drive.

I have no reservations about highly recommending it as the perfect place to relax and enjoy.

From the Owner

Villa Serendipity is located in the unspoiled south of the island, which largely remains unaffected by over-development that unfortunately blights the north. This superior Villa is set in the beautiful location of the residency known as Sitara, which provides 24 hour security. The ocean views are outstanding, and unrivalled anywhere else on the island of Koh Samui. Sophisticated Villa Serendipity has been created to provide a serene and peaceful ambience in the daytime, for relaxing and enjoying the beautiful surroundings. From dusk, the Villa provides a romantic atmosphere with soft lighting, where guests can wine and dine under the stars.

  • The use of a new automatic Toyota Fortuner with Satellite Navagation is also included in the rental price for the Villa. The Villa is located in the quieter part of the island, and makes driving a more pleasurable experience. Villa Serendipity has outstanding ocean views and where you have this, you have a hill to climb. It is therefore a condition of Sitara Retreat that a 4 x 4 vehicle is required to drive on the estate, of which the new automatic Toyota Fortuner is provided for your use during your stay at Villa Serendipity. The roads are also quiet around this area, unlike the busy north of the island. If your intentions are not to use the vehicle, taxis can pick you up at the entrance of Sitara, which is a 4 or 5 minute walk down the hill. There is private parking for a vehicle at the Villa
