Large villa with beach, cinema, tennis, gym, pool
Villa | 8 bedrooms | sleeps 14
An exceptional choice for families or groups of friends seeking the ultimate exclusive retreat, Villa Riva's multifunctional living spaces and luxurious facilities offer guests a range of appealing options for undisturbed relaxation and personalised recreation.
The villa's 7 bedrooms (one a dedicated children's room) are all individually furnished to guarantee complete comfort, with generous ensuite bathrooms and unique design touches adding to the pleasure of the stay. Hand-picked Asian artefacts, contemporary artwork and delightful soft furnishings create an inspiring sense of the exotic location.
Indulgent additions at Villa Riva include a custom built Clubhouse with its own private fitness and massage rooms, dry sauna, steam and huge jacuzzi. Active guests can play a few sets on the villa's floodlit tennis court (with astro turf surfacing) or swim laps in the 32 metre private pool. Those who prefer less strenuous vacation fun can also enjoy a game of pool or mahjong in the Clubhouse, then head down to the private, 12-seater cinema for movie marathon complete with popcorn and ice cream.
The villa's semi-private beach is flanked by rocks and therefore very secluded. The views over the bay to neighbouring Koh Phangan are nothing short of breathtaking with dramatic skies and crimson sunsets offering a true natural spectacle and the small cove that fronts the villa also boasts its own protected rock pool (not accessible during seasonal high or low tides).
Fully staffed by an efficient team, including an experienced, multi-lingual General Manager, guests at Villa Riva enjoy the very best in personalised services. First rate hospitality, combined with an incredible range of comforts, fabulous facilities and a dramatic oceanfront location make Villa Riva Koh Samui's most extravagant and engaging private luxury villa.
Villa Riva is also the perfect venue for weddings, celebrations and corporate events as it features a specially designed, covered events platform with a marriage gazebo, gentle water features and a purpose built food and beverage service area, DJ podium, dedicated bar and guest bathrooms. The happy couple and their close family and friends can easily combine a dream wedding with a wonderful vacation in one of the region's most exuberant private villas.

The Koh Samui region
Villa Riva is located on the north western coast of Koh Samui, facing Koh Phangan island and with a sunset view from the master suite.
Isolated on a small headland, its semi private cove is not easily accessible which allows a high level of privacy for the host and his guests.
Only another, though rarely occupied as not available for letting, private house shares the beach and is without any vis a vis with the Villa Riva.
An access was specially made through the reef and rocks in order to provide a dedicated and safe salt water pool for children under the shade of the impressive and preciously maintained Tamarind tree; as well as a safe entrance to the sea for small boats and sea kayaks.
Distances from main landmarks are:
- Chaweng Beach: 35-40 min
- Bophut's Fisherman Village: 20-25 min
