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.

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.
