About this location
The Surat Thani Province region
There are many excellent Restaurants on the island from the haute cuisine of hotels and sophisticated continental restaurants to the many smaller restaurants and the Thai restaurants. Just at the bottom of the hill you will find several beach restaurants serving both International and Thai food. These are excellent for breakfast, lunch or dinner or will serve you with take away food if you just want to chill out at home.
In the small town of Maenam there are Italian Restaurants as well as Thai Restaurants on the Beach. In the villa you will find Restaurant guides, but if you don't want to go far you can go to the fisherman's village of Bophut 12 minutes away where you will find a wonderful selection of restaurants and bars, some with live music and most stay open until the early hours.
Golf: The championship course of the Santiburi golf club is a challenging 72 par course. It is about 10 minutes away from the villa. You can play 'twilight' there after 3.00pm for a reduced rate.It is worth getting there early enough for a beer and a club sandwich in the impressive clubhouse and then hitting practice balls before your tee off time. Also it is certainly worth doing a bit of putting on the practice green. The greens are like quicksilver and hard to read! You can hire clubs.
Tennis: The Santiburi Hotel has floodlit Tennis Courts and you can book these. We like to play early in the morning, but have played in the evenings and then used their smart changing rooms for showers and gone on out for the evening. You can hire rackets and balls.
Windsurfing: The Zazen Hotel just past Maenam has windsurfers for hire, as do several of the Hotels locally and in the Town of Chaweng.
Spas, Massage and Yoga: There are many excellent Spas on the island. You will find information about these in the Villa but some of the most luxurious of these are at the larger Hotels. Several of the smaller boutique spas are also worth a visit. There are several Thai massage places, in Maenam (less than ten minutes away from the villa) and you will find information about these at the villa. In many of these you can also get manicures, pedicures and beauty treatments Five minutes away from the villa is the Health Oasis Resort at which you can attend yoga classes at 8.30 am-10.00. These are held in a spacious open sided building on the beach. It is a perfect setting, and if you have never done yoga before it doesn't matter. Equally if you are experienced you will be able to fit in. Certainly worth a try!
Other Activities: Elephant trekking, jungle swinging, kite boarding, yoga, spas, shopping
The town of Nathon is ten minutes drive from the house where you can go to local markets and find clothes shops, arts and crafts stores as well as chemists and a Tesco store. Ten minutes in the opposite direction there is the small town of Maenam where there are many restaurants and small shops as well as the Maenam beach on which there are plenty of bars and restaurants. There are also fresh food markets here as well as small supermarkets where you can buy most essentials.
The nearest night spot to the villa is the fisherman’s village of Bophut (15 minutes drive) which is full of bars, restaurants and shops. Bohput stays open until the early hours. The Santiburi Golf Course is under 10 minutes away as is the Santiburi Hotel where you can play tennis and shower before having a cocktail on the beach. In the villa you will find information about all the things you can do and see as well as restaurants and previous guest’s tips for a good holiday in the guest book
Local activities: diving, swimming, tennis, walking, sailing, cycling, fishing, horse riding, golf, wind-surfing, kite boarding, water skiing, massages and spas
All the above you will find information in the villa about, with contact names and telephone numbers
We can arrange massage, beauty treatments and yoga at the villa.
We have a new discovery!
Instead of just playing golf, mat the wonderful Santiburi Golf Course, we have found an amazing instructor who can put you right!
We decided the time had come to stop walking around the course cursing!
He is brilliant and is happy to give lessons to beginners as well as experienced golfers. you will find his details at the villa and can contact him direct.
There are many tours available on Koh Samui and to neighbouring islands.
All of these you will find information about at the villa and our house manager will be happy to advise you as well.

Thank you so much for submitting this review.
We are so pleased that you were happy at the villa and that the staff made your holiday stress free.
You certainly saw the island and all it has to offer, well done for being able to pull yourselves away from the pool and view!
several guests have mentioned that they just loved the villa and the pool so much, it was difficult to pull themselves away.
I am really glad it was a good holiday for you all and am very grateful for you taking the time to write a review.
