A convenient large covered car port stands on the entrance level of the villa beyond which you will find captivating lush tropical gardens and a charming ornamental fish pond feature. What makes this 650sqm villa unique is its stunning interior design created from natural textures and tones, its unparalleled location, its jaw dropping views and its five spacious and comfortable bedrooms that all have en-suite bathrooms, four of which have fabulous views overlooking the tropical rain forest, ocean and island beyond.

* Elegant design fusing within its lush tropical environment *

The entrance level of the villa, with its vaulted ceilings is the perfect blend of modern luxury and tropical elegance. Comfortable and inviting here you will find a fully functional, open plan, western kitchen with stylish black granite work surfaces, elegant wooden cupboards and all of the amenities you would expect to find in a villa of this standard. Beyond the kitchen is a spacious open plan living area that affords spectacular views of the tropical rain forest, the ocean and Koh Phangan beyond that can be appreciated whilst relaxing in one of the sumptuous and comfortable sofas. The open plan dining area also offers guests the privilege of soaking up incredible views while dining. The elegant hard wooden dining table can comfortably seat up to eight diners and the outdoor ocean view dining terrace is the perfect place to relax with a cocktail and marvel at the sunset. Beyond the dining area is a comfortable and private living area can be found with comfortable seating, a state of the art entertainment system and panoramic ocean views. From here one can sit back and relax and feel the stresses of modern life dissolve.

* Spacious sanctuaries to help you unwind *

From the entrance level an attractive staircase leads down to the second level that has three en-suite bedrooms. The master suite has been tastefully furnished and has an indulgently comfortable king sized bed, a spacious dressing area and access to the pool terrace. The opulent en-suite has twin sinks, a refreshing rain shower and a luxurious bath tub. The second sumptuously furnished bedroom on the opposite side of the villa has a large comfortable bed, an en-suite with rain shower and pool terrace. Bedroom three is to the rear of this level and boats a large dressing area, king-sized bed and a luxurious bathroom with twin sinks, a rain shower and a bath tub.

The lower third level of the villa houses two further en-suite bedrooms. Both have very large dressing areas, one with a queen-sized bed, the other two single beds, and a large inviting private sun deck connected by stepping stones around a fabulous cascading water feature fed from the incredible 32sqm infinity swimming pool, on the level above. This unforgettable pool gives the impression one could simply swim off into the luxurious tropical rain forest canopy below and into the sea. Both the pool and the impressively large sun terrace capture the wow factor of the villas impressive location. The terrace has well chosen luxurious outdoor furnishings that encourage guests to relax and unwind. This area is particularly impressive after dark when the enchanting villa lighting creates an opulent and romantic atmosphere.

About the Owner

Stuart is an English Chartered Accountant who has chosen to live in Thailand since 2005. He fell in love with the country having been travelling and decided on setting the goal of building a dream vacation home. This was realised in 2007.

Stuart's goal for the villa is a simple one.... to offer one of the most well designed villas on Samui at very competitive prices, without jeopardising guest service management levels. This formula has been the key to the previous 4 year's success for the villa in the rental market, achieving above average occupancy. Our management team are from the UK ensuring guests are always understood to the highest level and any requests or issues are dealt with in the professional manner you expect.

The Surat Thani Province region

Koh Samui is the rare gem of the Gulf of Thailand. Conserving the idyllic simplicity of a tropical hideaway, it is mostly characterized by its powdery white sand beaches, crystal-clear waters and welcoming locals where you will delight yourself in a late-day Robinson Crusoe experience in comfort.

In such an idyllic setting the temptation is simply to laze peacefully on the beach and soak up a tropical sun tan. But if you want more there are amenities for water sports, such as windsurfing, kayaking, fishing, scuba diving and snorkeling. The coastal waters are exciting to explore and are especially rich in shoals of brightly coloured fish and exotic coral formations. You even have the opportunity to learn how to scuba dive in the comfort of the villa itself (see scuba diving section)

The largest and most popular beaches on Samui are Chaweng, Lamai, Bo Phut and Maenam. For those looking for a quieter place to spend their holiday or business trip, there is another twenty or so other beaches to choose from.

Santi Thani

This spacious beautifully appointed villa in the Santi Thani development commands spectacular sea views across the island, northward to Koh Phangan, the spectacular home to the families of whales, dolphins and monkeys.

Just a few minutes drive to the beach, 10 minutes drive to the new Santiburi international golf course, local restaurants, supermarkets and internet shops, this villa was built for the owners as a holiday home rather than for rental. Unlike many rented villas the owners have left everything in place in the villa, rendering it even more welcoming and personalized.

The Santi Thani development hosts some of the finest villas in Koh Samui, all offering individual design and characteristics, providing your dream holiday with a touch of exclusivity. Santi Thani is otherwise known as the 'Beverly Hills' of Samui.

"Not quite as good as the pictures"

We spent many months looking forward to this trip. Ian (manager) was extremely helpful in helping me to plan renewing our wedding vows while we were there and also collected my parents at the airport … More

Thanks very much for your review. I am happy everything went smoothly with the wedding after much preparation.

I always welcome constructive criticism for improvement to the villa and take note of some of your comments regarding BBQ, crockery and any minor cleaning issues. I can only apologise; these will be addressed with my staff in order to improve future guest experiences. Ian (Guest Manager) and I are however a little confused regarding some points mentioned.

The stereo is a 5 channel power amplifier and is just 4 months old, offering an I-POD connection. I am guessing you are referring to not having a traditional stereo system; however these are not powerful enough to service the multiple Bose speakers which span the villa.

Villa Maphraaw proudly positions itself in the rental market as a very reasonably priced high-end luxury villa without jeopardizing quality. I as the owner still stand by this; I ensure everything is in perfect working order during every guest stay. If items were genuinely in need of replacing, this would be addressed immediately in order to ensure future guests receive the same level of quality that we promise to deliver. Despite minor rental wear and tear, the villa still presents itself immaculately.

We are both a little disappointed that you only highlighted the negatives in your review. From the positive 4 out of 5 stars left, as an owner it is a real shame you haven't mentioned any of the many positives which made you leave such high ratings despite the minor flaws


Warm Regards

Stuart & Ian

Thanks for your review and kind comments. Glad you had a relaxing time. I take note regarding the duvets as it can become a little hot at times during peak season but as you mention, the air conditioning does work efficiently to ensure you have a good sleep each night. I will also see to it that future guests will enjoy a brand new blender!! Hope to see you again some time soon, thanks Stuart

"Breathtaking villa, stunning views"

Myself, my friends and family have just returned (unfortunately) back from a superb holiday at Baan Villa Maphraaw. I don't unusually leave reviews but felt this deserved one. We booked the villa on the back of all of the other reviews on a late booking, having come from Phuket. The interior design is awesome and well thought out (with natural colours throughout). A few of my highlights: 1 external speakers around the pool area; 2 the speed of the Wi-Fi (cannot go 5 minutes away from FB!!). They even had a I-Pod docking station which came in handy; 3 the staff were pleasant and helpful and the guest manager very informative. We chose to have the private chef on a couple nights and highly recommend this to anyone who stays.

We took advantage of the discounted car available which gave us the flexibility to explore the island, which was a bonus as we loved visiting all the different beaches, villages and towns. Lamai is lovely at night and Maenam night market on a Thursday is packed….

I highly recommend the local beach restaurants which are populated not far from the villa itself in Ban Tai. They offer superb traditional Thai food (I love spicy myself) without being overcrowded with tourists. It was nice to eat where the locals eat f you know what I mean.

Cheers Greg

Thanks for your kind words and hopefully we will see you all again soon at the villa. take care

Stuart
