About the property

Villa Crystal in Laem Set, Koh Samui-Located At Private Residency, Close To The Southern Tip Of The Island, 5 Mins Drive To Beach & Free Transfer

Villa Crystal provides an exquisite and romantic setting for couples, offering spectacular panoramic ocean views. The villa is situated on 22 acre area of ocean view hillside land known as Sitara Retreat, which provides 24 hour security. The Villa has a large, infinity pool, with sun beds, parasol, Lotus pond with colourful fish; and baby turtles. This peaceful setting is surrounded by wonderful lush greenery, swaying palm trees and outstanding ocean views. With its magnificent 180 degree panoramic view of the shimmering turquoise ocean, Villa Crystal is uniquely perched amongst, around and against the ancient granite boulders, which are a special feature throughout the Villa. Sitara is an exclusive private residency, surrounded by nature, and with outstanding natural beauty. The Villa is in the unspoiled south of the island which largely remains unaffected by over development that unfortunately blights the north.

From the private car park, steps navigate around an impressive granite rock, that forms the edge of the large lotus pond, positioned at the entrance of the Villa, with its colourful fish and four baby turtles. The spacious open plan Living area, blessed with natural light, has a high elevated ceiling, and an impressive 180 degree beautiful ocean view, which also can be enjoyed from the three balconies that form part of the living area. Outside is a large private infinity edge salt water swimming pool and decking with sun beds. The kitchen area consists of a fully equipped western-style fitted Kitchen with Breakfast bar. Also on this level is a partially open shower room, with WC and washbasin, uniquely designed around a gigantic granite rock which provides an individual feature. From the balcony, you step down to the Bedroom en-suite with sliding doors and leads you out onto another balcony, with its own small colourful garden. Here you can sit, relax and enjoy the tranquil tropical setting.

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 Madrid...to watch my beloved Spurs in the Champions Leagu

Why david smart chose Koh Samui

I felt very fortunate in being able to obtain the very special area of land on the residency known as Sitara.

I have taken great pride in creating and building 3 villas in this wonderfully tranquil and peaceful area of the island.

I took full advantage of the beautiful nature provided in this location, by imaginatively creating the villa to be built in amongst the superb granite rocks, tropical greenery and swaying palm trees. .

What makes this villa unique

Villa Crystal has superb 180 degree panoramic views of the shimmering turquoise ocean, which cannot be equalled anywhere else on the island of Koh Samui.

The unique feature of the villa is the stunning look and imaginative display of the beautifully-formed rock formation throughout the villa. It is located in the unspoiled south of the island which largely remains unaffected by over-development that unfortunately blights the north.

Set in the unique and beautiful location of the residency known as Sitara, Villa Crystal offers a superb stay for anyone visiting the island of Koh Samui.

Coast/Beach:

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 Crystal 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. We are frequently told by guests they find the Thai people in this southern part of the island extremely hospitable, and welcoming. In the north where it is far more crowded and touristy on the island there is not always the opportunity to discover the true warmth and charm of the local people. The beaches on the south also 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.

Also within the charming area of Laem Sett there are several fine restaurants, serving Thai and European food, small coffee shop, a few small, quiet garden bars, several traditional Thai massage services, Yoga, couple of 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.

Getting There:

We provide complimentary transfers from the airport, ferry or hotel on the island to Villa Crystal and a return journey (one in each direction).

Getting Around:

The hiring of a car or moped is the easiest way to get around. The Villa is located in the quieter part of Koh Samui, unlike the busy north of the island. Villa Crystal has outstanding ocean views and where you have this, you have a hill to climb. The villa is positioned in an outstandingly beautiful location, and is a 250 mtr length of steep hill from the entrance at Sitara Retreat. We strongly recommend the use of a four wheel drive, or if you are a very 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 if you hire a car it will need to be a four wheel drive. Once you have booked we can assist in the hire of these vehicles at a competitive price.

With the villa being located in a quieter part of the island, driving can be a more pleasurable experience. To go to the beach, restaurants, local attractions etc, we do strongly recommend the hiring of your own transport. If you do not consider yourself a confident driver, there are several private hire car companies (of which we can give you telephone numbers) that can pick you up at the entrance of Sitara, which is a 4 or 5 minute walk down the hill.

All our cars are insured, with the guest being responsible, and limited, for the first 15,000 Baht of any damage. There is no insurance on mopeds where the guest pays for any damage incurred.

It is the guests' responsibility to ensure that they also have their own comprehensive Travel & Health Insurance, and appropriate driving documentation for Thailand.

There is secure parking for a vehicle at Villa Crystal.

Travel:

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

Distances:

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.

Beautiful relaxing I didn't want to leave!!

  • 5 of 5

The veiw is the first thing when you arrive it's breathtaking. It is actually more beautiful than the pictures. A few things to note the road up the villas is steep and by steep I mean it's almost vertical and the truck David rents is a standard so the first few times getting up is hairraising make sure you have a strong drink ready for you are the top. But it is totally worth it one other thing the mattress on the bed needs to be upgraded this would be a 5 star accommodation except for the mattress and the worst little coffee percolator (it's got to be worth all of five dollars!) The pool is gorgeous and it's so private if you don't feel like wearing a swim suit there is no worries. The air in the bedroom worked beautifully. We ate out most meals except for breakfast and there was everything we needed. Both bathrooms were lovely and clean. The cleaning staff come every third day so clean sheets and towels which were lovely. There are quite a few things to do in the area. Lots of restaurants. The Cooll Bar has a beautiful beach you can swim and have reasonavbly priced drinks brought to you with toes dug into the sand and it is just down the hill from the Villa community. Or Lanai beach is ten minutes away. As I said I was begging David to let us stay! We travelled thailand for a month and stayed here for 9 days we wished we had stayed for the month!

Wonderful property, perfect place to relax

  • 5 of 5

Great property, wonderful views. The owner is very helpful in showing one around and pointing out nice restaurants. Villa is tucked away on a hilltop so a vehicle is needed to get around. But wonderfully quiet and private which is what I liked.

This is the third time I've stayed at peaceful villas which says it all I guess.

Being picky there are a couple of minuses. No blue tooth music player for listening to your tunes (so take one along); no soap nor shampoo provided (strange) and the pillows are rock hard (again, bring your own). Picky like I said. everything else was perfect.

Wonderful exclusive getaway

  • 5 of 5

This is a extremely private and classy vacation rental perfectly suited to a couple who wants comfort. It is close enough to get to the more chaotic spots on the Island yet far enough away to avoid traffic and noise. Yes the road is steep but it is at the top of a private development which of course is where the great views come from and great security. The pool and other comforts are perfect - 3 showers including the outdoor ones - great satellite tv and kitchen set up. We found it close to some of the top Thai restaurants like Sweet Sisters (10 minutes away) and Green Talay (15 minutes away) and easy drive to the wonderful Five Islands Restaurant on Lipa Noi Beach - easily our favourite beach on the west side. David was very easy to deal with for the booking and his team at Peaceful Villas who took care of the pool, gardens and cleaning every few days. You will not be disappointed in Villa Crystal.

Belle villa bien entretenue avec superbe vue au calme et 10 mn de Lamai en voiture

  • 5 of 5

Très belle villa avec vue 180 sur la mer. Très calme, propre. Accueil très agréable. Villa très propre et bien décorée. De la cuisine, de la chambre, du salon... Vue sur mer ! Loin du bruit et des odeurs de Chaweng. A 10 mn de Lamaii. Prévoir une voiture car rien à faire à pied ( sauf ceux qui aiment les fortes pentes à monter et descendre... ) 4 roues motrices conseillées ( route bitumée pour acceder a la villa mais très raide) . Habitué des villas en location à travers le monde, l'une des plus belles, propres et fonctionnelles. Nous souhaitons y revenir !
