Virtual Tour spacer All the rooms surround the swimming pool and with 39 metres of beachfront the views across the Gulf of Thailand are magnificent.

There’s also a fully-fitted European style kitchen and an impressive dining room and living area. There’s also a games room and plenty of storage space.

Outdoors there’s another large dining area, a covered sala and plenty of lawn space for relaxing on the sun-loungers. And the ocean is but a few steps from the villa. What more could you ask for?

Mountain Road – if you’re out driving around the island for the day take the mountain road that starts at Mae Nam Soi 1. There’re fantastic views, it’s a comfortable drive in a 4x4, takes around 30 minutes and comes out in Lamai. You’ll see parts of the island you never knew existed.

Wat Lamai – unlike other temples this one houses a museum of Buddhist artifacts and a history of Samui.

Samui Cultural Center and Fine Arts of Southeast Asia – a hidden gem of Buddhist images and statues located in Lipa Noi, but off the beaten track, well worth a visit.

Temple Fairs – with 39 temples on the island there are always one or two Temple Fairs taking place at any given time. These are nothing like the ‘walking streets’, this is where local Thais (visitors are more than welcome) go to support their community temple and there are always hundreds of stalls selling local cuisine and arts and crafts.
spacer Do an internet search of ‘things to do on Samui’ and you’ll get a few million hits extolling the virtues of Big Buddha, mummified monks, waterfalls, elephant treks, Ang Thong National Marine Park, Thai boxing matches and a host of restaurants and spas that you simply must try. And these are all worthy of a visit and very popular. But if you’ve been to Samui before then you may well have experienced them already. So what else is there to do?

icon BOOK A TRIP OR FIND OUT MORE

Picnic on an uninhabited island – take a traditional Thai long-tail fishing boat out to the tiny uninhabited island of Koh Tan just off the south coast of Samui. There’s wonderful snorkeling, a beautiful beach and you and those closest to you could enjoy a gourmet picnic all by yourselves.

Coco Splash Adventure & Waterpark – a great day out for the kids and the slightly older ‘young at heart’, it’s in Lamai and it is open from mid morning until early evening.


Kite Surfing – there’re a couple of kite surfing schools on the island now over on the west coast and it’s an exhilarating ride.

Football Golf – brilliant for kids and adults alike, it’s all about fun and enjoying playing together, located near Choeng Mon.

Pistol Range – you can test your hand and eye co-ordination down on the pistol range (adults only) and make believe you’re Clint Eastwood and mumble the classic line from the movie ‘Dirty Harry’; “Do you feel lucky, punk”.

Rum Distillery – explore and sample the delights of Thailand’s only rum distillery in the south of the island. And we would advise visiting the distillery after you go to the shooting range and not before!

“The first time I played the Masters, I was so nervous I drank a bottle of rum before I teed off. I shot the happiest 83 of my life.”

icon MEET AND GREET

Tal is one of our longest-serving Villa Managers and has become great friends with many of our guests. Here she tells us a little bit about her life on Samui.


Where are you from and how long have you lived on Koh Samui?
I’m originally from Suratthani which is a city directly west of Samui on the mainland and I’ve lived here for the last nine years. I worked as a butler at a five-star resort in Chaweng before joining the team at Miskawaan nearly six years ago.

What is a typical day like for you as a Villa Manager?
Every day is always about two things; making sure our guests are exceptionally happy staying with us and also that my team is happy and doing the very best job possible. Of course, in terms of detail, each group of guests is quite different. For some it’s all about peace and quiet and spending their precious vacation time relaxing and rejuvenating. And for others it’s all about exploring and getting out and around the island. Our job is to exceed everyone’s expectations and ‘read’ quite quickly how each set of guests wishes to spend their day.

What's the best part of your job?
Getting to know our guests and making them feel at home. Many of the team at Miskawaan has been here a long time and there’s a family feel to working here and I think that shines through, it’s a pleasure and a joy to come to work and I’m not sure how many people can say that about their profession.

What skills does a Villa Manager need to be successful at their job?
Very good communication skills are essential to being successful. We have guests from all around the world and it may be on occasion that we don’t have a common language to communicate in. It’s therefore very important to be patient, take your time and clarify if necessary exactly what it is the guest requires. There’s always lots of planning to do before guests arrive and being organised is very important. Guests may have made specific requests for say certain food items to be available when they arrive or for certain foodstuffs to be excluded from the menu if they have an allergy for example and that’s not something you can forget about.
  villa

What Thai dishes would you recommend that your guests try when they are here?
Fish cakes are my favorite cooked with the addition of a little curry sauce and kaffir lime leaves, simply delicious!

Why do you like living on Samui?
I love being by the sea and there are lots of nice sandy beaches right around the island, not just in the popular areas for visitors. And I’m only a ferry ride away from my family on the mainland so it’s easy for me to visit them when I have some free time.
