“Amazing Villa, wonderful and relaxing pre-wedding weeklong stay!!!” My fiancee (now wife) and I booked this villa for ourselves and part of our bridal party (5 couples) for 1 week ahead of our wedding this past February before Valentine's Day.
6 Bedroomed, serviced, Seaview Villa & Spa in Koh Samui
Best Week Of My Life at Samui Ridgeway
This was the most beautiful villa I have ever seen and it was beyond incredible to spend a week there. Samui Ridgeway 100% deserves the Conde Nest award that they recently won.
Service in Thailand is impeccable and Samui Ridgeway raised the bar with a full staff of extremely friendly and helpful locals - including our two chefs, two masseuses, bartender, driver, and house manager. They identified each of us by name from day one, catered to our every want and need, and could not have made our stay more enjoyable.
The property is really gorgeous. Perfect for relaxing and for entertaining guests. We loved the pool, loved the spa, the bedrooms are gorgeous, and the views are pretty breathtaking. We had the chance to see a storm come in which was one of the more incredible sights I have seen, bats fly over each night in migration which is also pretty amazing, and the sunsets...
Location is remote - this would be the biggest knock against the property if you're planning to go out in Chaweng, which we did, however the owners were amazing about this - arranging a private driver at all times for a reasonable price, providing us with local mobile phones to contact her, etc. But you essentially have a mountain almost all to yourself and the drive up to the villa is pretty epic in it's own right. 100% security due to staff and multiple gates.
One other note - if you plan on cooking this is not the place for you. We were thinking of doing that to reduce costs - but it ended up making zero sense as they had two chefs on staff who made incredible home cooked Thai meals two times per day for really affordable prices (less than $10 per meal). Kitchen facilities are really for their staff only. Same goes for drinks - we brought quite a bit, which reduced cost by a fraction, but it was not really necessary as the prices at the bar were so reasonable.
I will say this was my first real villa experience as an adult and there is no question where I'll be having my next elaborate (yet amazingly affordable) vacation. …
