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.

Why not stay at one of the most popular villas on Samui!!
You only need to read the reviews regarding the upkeep and design of property to see that although extremely competitively priced in the rental market, guests are still receiving a 5-star villa.We offer guests free nights (5 for 6), discounted car rentals, and early bird booking discounts. These bundled offers, together with the already competitive rates, create a superb package for any guest choosing to book Villa Maphraaw.
We also offer a 3-bedroom rate only so smaller parties of up to 6 can benefit with large discounts and still enjoy the entire villa facilities (the other 2 bedrooms are simply locked and guests have FULL PRIVATE USE of the villa - no-one else is invited), offering much more space than hiring your average 3 bed villa...We can arrange everything for the guest as requested, whether prior to the holiday or during it; massage, chef, spas, day trips, taxis, car hire, etc. The villa also offers a back-up generator for any power-outages which can occur in Thailand for short periods of time on occasions.

“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
Owner's reply: Thanks for your kind words and hopefully we will see you all again soon at the villa. take care Stuart
“Awesome place for a getaway”
My wife and i have just spent a week with 7 of our friends at this villa. It is a perfect place for a getaway trip, situated on hillside with awesome view on coast, palm tree forest and neighboring islands. The service was superb. we were collected at the airport and a great dinner cooked by in-house chef was waiting for us at villa. During our stay Stuart, the owner, helped us a lot, organizing car and motorbike rental and memorable trips to nearby islands. Villa is greatly planned piece of architecture. It has got everything you may think of. The Villa is absolutely like you see it on the pictures. There's plenty of space with 5 air-conditioned bedrooms, a pool area, kitchen, gas grill, internet access, big dining room, music all around the house, and a big collection of DVDs. We have recommended the villa to our friends and plan to return there next year. Thanks a lot, Stuart! we still see the villa in our dreams. Best regards from Sergey, Marina, Ivan, Zheka, Alex, Dasha, Lia, Vera, Lida!
Owner's reply: Thanks for your kind words. Always glad to see a large group of friends having a great time. Hope to see you again one day, Stuart
Stayed here and really was impressed with the villa, even after going up the mountain! The views are stunning, the villa is well laid out and practical for a group to get around and have quiet time from each other. I had the main bedroom, it opens up on to the swimming pool. Taking a cd from the library to listen too through the surround sound was lovely. When Stuart says he will be on hand he really is on hand for everything that you need, but never overboard he is a smashing bloke who gives 100% to his guests. The people who come and clean, the pool man, bin men and security are just lovely and never get in the way. Stay at the villa, hire a car and that's a must, and you will have such a good time. Every where is easy to get too from the villa. You either turn left and stay on the road or turn right and stay on the road and you will get back to the villa. The hire car people drop the car off for you and pick it up from you with out you ever knowing! Stuart has a good business with people he deals with and passes the relationship on to his guests. Have a good holiday in the villa, we did
Owner's reply: Dear Andrea, Thank you for the amazing review. We are glad you were impressed with the villa. We always try to give our guests the perfect holiday so it is great to know that everything went well during your stay. We hope you and your friends can visit Samui again for another wonderful holiday.
