The Koh Samui region
Koh Samui is Thailand's jewel in the Gulf of Thailand. With beautiful beaches, often with palm trees in the beach giving shade, and excellent views of other islands, the island is regarded as a premier resort. It lies close to the Angthong Marine Park, where trips can be arranged, and close to the island of Koh Phangan, the original setting of the novel The Beach. The central hills provide superb views over the coast and the marine park, and there are lots to see on this small island. The dining facilities are second to none, ranging from chic and expensive, to cheap tasty, locally cooked Thai food. A great choice for an exciting but relaxing holiday, unspoilt by the tawdriness of other major Thai resorts.

The gardens of the project and the individual villas are all maintained to a high standard, and provide a lush backdrop to living in the villa. Further up the soi the unspoilt hillsides for which Samui is famous, can be seen from the sala and from the front door of the villa.
The local points of interest include Fisherman's Village in Bophut providing more sophisticated eateries around 4km away, and the major tourist destination of Chaweng with its large selection of nightlife around 8km away. Angela's, famous for its breakfasts, and home cooking and baking is just over 2 km away.
Maenam itself offers a selection of shops, restaurants, spas and bars, of a more relaxed kind, together with massage, and dining, on the beach. Convenience stores and ATM's can be found in Maenam, whereas the two large supermarkets can be found around 6km away.
An assortment of restaurants ranging from Italian and Greek to traditional Thai, and more gastronomic meals can be had at the Santi Buri Hotel and Zazen Boutique Hotel, both of which employ celebrated European Chefs to head their kitchens.

A number of establishments offer spa and beauty facilities, and it is also possible to obtain a massage directly on the beach. We can also arrange for a massage in the privacy of your own villa. The 4 km long beach is long and wide and gently shelving, with clear water, and not so crowded as the more popular destinations but offers good swimming, and wonderful views of its sister island, Koh Phangan.
The hotels and restaurants along the beach tend to be smaller, family run businesses, although there are also some 5 star hotels in the vicinity. The emphasis is strictly on the natural beauty and tranquility of the area, and trips to the Marine National Park, for diving, snorkeling, and kayaking can be arranged, as well as trips around the island, mountain safaris, elephant trekking and descending on cables through the canopy of the natural rainforest.
