About a year ago, we spent about 10 days exploring Koh Samui with some of our friends. Staying in a handful of luxury villas in Koh Samui, Thailand, was a dream come true. And, one that I’ve wanted to recreate ever since then.
Miskawaan is set on Mae Nam beach in Koh Samui, a picturesque beach front location that feels tranquil and remote. But, it is not so far away from all of the Koh Samui attractions, and top restaurants and bars. Miskawaan offers 11 private villas, all with 5 star luxury service.
Miskawaan is situated in a great central location on the North Coast of Koh Samui. Local restaurants are steps away from the villas. Every Thursday night, nearby Mae Nam village hosts a walking street with street food and local market stalls. The villas are also only a ten minute drive to Fisherman’s Village, and 20 minutes from Chaweng.
It is nice to know the villas are close to activities, but part of renting a luxury villa in Koh Samui means staying in the villa, and just relaxing in luxury. Miskawaan’s luxury service means the villa comes with a private “Villa Manager” who takes care of all guests’ needs. The Villa Manager can recommend places to eat nearby, arrange for transport, and organize all sorts of in-villa activities. Some of the possible in-villa activities include Thai boxing, yoga, private spa experiences, or even organizing a private beach party. The possibilities are endless.
The in-villa staff and Miskawaan team have vast experience in tailoring the perfect luxury stay. The team will discuss everything with guests personally, in detail, before arrival to ensure all luxury requirements are fulfilled.
One of the best parts of booking a Koh Samui luxury villa, is that it is a great way for groups, and families to travel together. Each of Miskawaan’s 11 villas can accommodate between 4 and 28 (yes 28!) adults. This makes it the perfect way for families, or a group of friends, to vacation together.
Last year, during our Koh Samui luxury villa tour, it was so nice having each of the large villas to ourselves. Each morning, we woke and had breakfast with our friends. We lounged around the pool all day together. In the evening, we either ventured out for dinner, or had the in-villa chef prepare a feast. We were able to enjoy the public spaces of the villa, with privacy. It made the entire experience that much more memorable.
Similar to our experience last year, each Miskawaan villa has a kitchen, lounge, and large private outdoor swimming pool with garden. There are also both indoor and outdoor dining areas. It’s possible to self-cater, and buy groceries and cook your own meals. But, what we found is that having an in-villa dining experience, prepared by a personal villa chef, was about the same price as eating out. And, it was so much more enjoyable!
This year, Miskawaan was placed within the ‘Conde Nast Johansens’ Luxury Collection, meaning it is the perfect luxury villa in Koh Samui. I love this kind of travel, having a private luxury villa to enjoy with our friends. It is an experience I would love to have over and over.
