About david smart

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 League!

Why david smart chose Koh Samui

I feel extremely fortunate in obtaining this very special and beautiful area of land on the residency of Sitara, located in the south of the island, where I have taken huge pride and joy in designing and creating 3 high quality villas in this tranquil and peaceful area of the island.

I wanted to design and create a special kind of villa that would fit into this very beautiful and unique setting. The stunning ocean views, surrounding beautiful nature, superb granite rocks, lush tropical scenery with swaying palm trees around this location enabled me to create Villa Sapphire in these wonderful surroundings.

Staying at Villa Sapphire, guests can relax, and soak up the surrounding peacefulness of the beautiful nature and magnificent ocean views that are all around everywhere.

What makes this villa unique

The new, open-plan tropical-style Villa Sapphire is located in the unspoiled south of the island, which largely remains unaffected by over-development that unfortunately blights the north.

The villa is situated on the Residency known as Sitara, which provides 24 hour security.

The ocean views are outstanding, and unrivaled anywhere else on the island of Koh Samui. Villa Sapphire has been created to give a serene and peaceful ambiance 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.

Villa Sapphire has an exotic atmosphere with its open plan design, beautiful furnishings, soft lights and a jacuzzi in the centre of the living room

Guestbook comments from the manager

I stayed in Villa Sapphire for 2 weeks, and had a wonderful stay. The villa is set in a beautiful location, and I loved the ocean views which was all around me. The villa is brand new and everything in it looked new. It was a very relaxing, peaceful place to stay. Highly recommended to anyone wanting some luxury and beauty around them!

The hiring of a car or moped is the easiest way to get around. The Villa is located in the quieter part of the island, and makes driving a more pleasurable experience. Villa Sapphire has outstanding ocean views and where you have this, you have a hill to climb. We therefore strongly recommend the use of a 4 x 4 pick- up, or if you are a confident rider, a moped, which we can arrange for you, and have waiting at the villa on your arrival. It is a condition of Sitara Retreat that a 4 x 4 vehicle is required to drive on the estate. We can assist in the hire of these vehicles at a competitive price. The roads are also quiet around this area, unlike the busy north of the island. If your intentions are not to hire a vehicle or moped, 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.

Outstanding - Best Villa we have stayed in

  • 5 of 5

We had an outstanding stay at Villa Sapphire, and far exceeded any expectations. It is a stunning villa, set in a wonderful tropical location called Sitara. Our visit was pure magic. To sit in the Jacuzzi and see the ocean views is divine. We even watched a movie on the projector screen whilst in the Jacuzzi. Coming out of the exotic looking living area, is the fantastic infinity pool with views to die for. Absolutely ideal for a couple. It also has 24 hour security at Sitara, which I feel is good. We had one of our best holidays here, where we both didn't want to leave the beautiful Villa Sapphire.

Amazing view

  • 5 of 5

One of the most best places I have ever stayed ! The location was great, the owner arranged airport pick up and drop off. We had cleaning coming every three days and ample information about how to get around the island. He even gave us a phone for emergency ! I strongly recommend this place for couples, we loved our stay.

Top Anlage !!!

  • 5 of 5

Eine sehr schöne und saubere Villa, die in Wirklichkeit noch viel mehr bietet als es die Bilder erahnen lassen. Der Abhohlservice durch Dave hat super geklappt, dafür nochmals Danke Dave !! Es ist sehr ruhig in der Gegend, auch weil die Villa etwas abgelegen in den Bergen liegt. Der Zugang ist durch den steilen Anstieg etwas beschwerlich und welcher eigentlich nur mit einem Fahrzeug zu bewältigen ist. Hat man es aber geschafft, dann entschädigt der tolle Ausblick für alles.

Danke nochmals dem Team und Dave !!!

Laem Set
Car: recommended


The quiet and secluded Laem Set beach is located a 3-4 minute drive away. Lamai beach, arguably the finest on Samui, is just 10 minutes drive.

Villa Sapphire is located at Sitara Retreat which is situated close to the southern tip of the island. Nearby to the villa many of the island's main attractions are only a short drive away, which include Lamai beach, Butterfly Garden, Waterfalls, Aquarium, Elephant trekking, Grandmother, Grandfather Rocks, Thai cookery classes, horse riding, kayaking, amongst others. There are also many fine and varied restaurants serving delicious Thai and European dishes, all within 5-10 minutes drive from the villa.

The southern part of the island still has that rustic charm appeal that the whole of Samui boasted years ago. The beaches on the south remain undeveloped, due mainly to the shallow coastline. If you like to explore you can still find areas where you have the beach to yourself, and never too far away you will find a Thai restaurant where you can enjoy true authentic local dishes.

The villa is a 2-3 min drive, or 15 min walking distance (which is steep in a couple of places) to Laem Sett beach. This is a quiet and secluded beach and here one can admire a beautiful sunset, and see the local fishermen, with their long tailed boats, come into shore. Also 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.

Within the charming area of Laem Sett there are several fine restaurants, serving Thai and Western food, a few small, quiet bars, several traditional Thai massage services, Yoga, two local taxi services and a travel agency.

Close by is ShaSa Resort, Centara Villas and Samui Orchid which opens its doors to non residents and has many facilities to enjoy, including smart restaurants and bars.

Five to ten mins away by motorbike or car you have the fishing village of Baan Hua Thanon where fresh fish, fruit and vegetables are sold daily at the local market, together with small local shops, 24-hour Seven Eleven store, doctors surgery and a Chinese Temple, amongst other things.

Lamai beach, which is several kilometres long, has many attractions, and includes fine restaurants and varied water-sports.

It is a condition of Sitara Retreat that a 4 x 4 vehicle (or you can hire a moped if you are a confident rider) is required to drive on the estate. We can assist in the hire of these vehicles at a competitive price. Click the link to our website for details. The roads are also quiet around this area, unlike the busy north of the island.


Samui International Airport is 35 minutes drive away. Ferries are located 25 minutes away.

We provide complimentary transfers from airport and ferry (one in each direction).


The seaside town of Lamai is a 10 minute drive, Chaweng is a 25 minute drive. The Butterfly Garden, Aquarium and Tiger Zoo are a within a few minutes drive.
