The master bathroom opens to a secret garden where one can meditate, or admire the views in the midst of the sound of a waterfall and the smell of seasonal flowers. From this secret garden, one can meander through the boulders to a sweet yoga sala.

Below the Master Suite are two bedroom suites, both with interesting shower gardens. All of the rooms have unobstructed views of the Gulf of Thailand.A walk down the curved steps from the main pavilions is a big entertainment room with a 55” flat screen TV and sound systems. Next to the entertainment room is the fourth bedroom suite. As the sun goes down, Villa Serendipity turns into a magical place with its lights.

The Surat Thani Province region

Koh Samui is the largest of the Siam gulf islands and resides on an archipelago of 80 smaller islands of which very few (6) are inhabited. With its beautiful coconut trees and hills covered with lush vegetation and the white chalky mountains it offers a wonder of natural beauty to explore and enjoy.

It enjoys a tropical climate with its main season running from Dec to April. You will find the standard of living very attractive and there are many shops offering summer clothing and accessories.

Laem Set

Within 5-10 minutes drive of the Villa you have over half a dozen restaurants serving Thai and western food, 3 mini-marts plus Tesco express for your daily needs, several laundry shops, a couple of small garden bars, and a beach bar at Laem Set

Villa Serendipity is a 2-3 min drive, or 15 min walking distance (which is steep in a couple of places) to Laem Sett beach. This is a quiet and secluded beach and here one can admire a beautiful sunset, and see the local fishermen, with their long tailed boats, come into shore. Also located on the beach is the rustic Thai style Cool Bar when you can enjoy good food and a drink whilst soaking up the tranquil atmosphere. Within this charming area of Laem Sett there are several fine restaurants, serving both delicious Thai and European food and a few small, quiet bars.

Also close by is ShaSa Resort, Centara Villas and Samui Orchid which opens its doors to non residents and has many facilities to enjoy, including smart restaurants and bars.

Lamai is a beach side tourist town 5 to10 mins drive from the Villa. There are many shops lining the streets offering locally made souvenirs and clothes. When the sun goes down the streets come alive with lights and music from the night market and variety of bars while the restaurants serve excellent Thai and western dishes in the town and on the beach.

Thai boxing is also popular and Lamai has its own professional and amateur boxing ring.

There is also the Namuang Waterfalls, Crocodile farm, Elephant trekking, Thai cookery classes, water sports, horse riding, amongst others which can be found a short distance away plus many temples and a snake farm.

The Aquarium,Tiger Zoo and Butterfly Garden are within 5 mins drive of the villa

Royal Samui Golf & Country Club. 18 hole course under construction but first 9 holes now open on mountain overlooking Lamai, 15 minutes from the villa.

Just remember nowhere on the island is more than 35 minutes away, private car hire with a driver, taxis, motor bike taxis and the local public transport which run around the ring road called song taews or simply hire a motorbike or car.

Between 5-10 minutes away by motorbike or car, you have the fishing village of Baan Hua Thanon where fresh fish, fruit and vegetables are sold daily at the local market, together with local small shops, a 24-hour Seven Eleven store, a doctors surgery and Chinese Temple, amongst other things.

It is a condition of Sitara Retreat that a 4 x 4 vehicle (or moped) is required to drive on the estate. We can assist in the hire of these vehicles at a competitive price. Click the link to our website for details. The roads are also quiet around this area, unlike the busy north of the island.

If your intentions are not to hire a vehicle or moped, taxis can pick you up at the entrance of Sitara, which is a 4 or 5 minute walk down the hill.

La villa est luxueuse et grandiose. La piscine est magnifique et adaptée pour de jeunes enfants. Le petit déjeuner est servi tous les matins par Con Big et son mari qui vivent sur place. Au choix nous pouvons leur demander de nous préparer le déjeuner et/ou le diner. A recommander sans hésiter. A noter que David Edward Smart qui s'occupe de la location et vous transfert de l'aéroport à la villa est un homme très fiable, disponible et d'une incroyable gentillesse.

"A taste of luxury in the sun"

Words could never do justice to describe this fabulous villa, it simply has to be seen and experienced to be believed. The villa oozes pure elegance with its high quality finish, attention to detail and stylish furnishings; in fact nothing here has been left to chance. Even the spectacular views which can be appreciated from the large infinity pool, the sun deck and every room in the villa are just to die for. The pleasure of any stay here is enhanced perfectly by the attentive Thai couple, Khun Big and Khun John, who look after both the villa and the guests faultlessly. The couple prepare and serve breakfast, and if you so wish, will also do the same for lunch and evening meal. I have to say taking the option of having an evening meal is a must as Khun Bigs's culinary skills are exceptional, producing some of the best food we have eaten on Koh Samui; nothing seems to faze her. In fact when staying here the biggest decision of the day is choosing the evening dishes from the stack of cook books presented to you by Khun Big; and such a hard decision that is too. The services provided by the in-house staff are expertly complemented by 'Peaceful Villas' owner and villa manager, Dave, who coordinates your stay and ensures that the whole visit to this villa runs smoothly. Unlike all the other villas in the 'Peaceful Villas' portfolio, this property is actually owned by a successful Hong Kong business woman, whose superb tastes are obviously reflected throughout the villa. Even so Dave manages Serendipity and supports the guests with the professionalism and commitment you would expect from a villa of this standard. He offers a free airport pick-up and drop-off service and his local knowledge with guided commentary during the journey was so invaluable. The complementary mobile, which he also provides, was an appreciated added bonus, enabling us to contact him at all times to answer our questions and to seek his advice. If you wish for an unforgettable experience and to be pampered in the sun then Villa Serendipity is a must for you - go on spoil yourself. Adore it, you most certainly will.

One of the most wonderful houses I have stayed at or visited. It is a house with a soul, a house that is aesthetically, practically and environmentally serene, relaxing, quiet and comfortable, without clutter or vacation rental house shortcuts. This was built by a delighful woman with the help of a brilliant team of architect, landscpae architect, builder and project manager and if everybody is in sync and you have a site with beautiful ocean views, you acheive something extraordinary. It is not one of those ubiquitous OTT places that reminds you of a well decorated but impersonal upscale resort. The house is staffed by an extremely pleasant local couple who cook honest food -- just right. It is a place to go if you want to get away from everything stressful in life and avoid bad attitude, noise, fellow guests, bad room locations and piped in music you get at many upscale resorts. Not for little kids or for those looking for a party place. The sort of place that Tyler Brule who writes the Fast Lane column of the FT would approve !

"Beautiful seaview villa!!"

We stayed at the Villa in May. It is a very open and beautiful villa. The housekeeper are very nice and Ms. Big cooked really good Thai food. Its about 10 to 15 minutes drive to a nicer beach. The villa is clean and nicely decorated. It is good for family and friends. I would definitely go back again. The only down side is the rental cars are really old and dirty. Overall is a beautiful villa with ocean view everywhere in the villa. Pick up from the airport is another plus to stay at this villa.

"Beautiful retreat"

It is a beautiful location with a very stylish and comfortable villa. The staff were charming, helpful and cooked superb thai food. There is plenty of space for everyone to do their own thing. It has all been very well designed even the plants! Only thing to point out that we would strongly recommend a 4 wheel drive vehicle to get up the drive. I have no reservations about highly recommending it as the perfect place to relax and enjoy.
