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.

This area is particularly impressive after dark when the enchanting villa lighting creates an opulent and romantic atmosphere.

The Surat Thani Province region

Koh Samui is the rare gem of the Gulf of Thailand. Conserving the idyllic simplicity of a tropical hideaway, it is mostly characterized by its powdery white sand beaches, crystal-clear waters and welcoming locals where you will delight yourself in a late-day Robinson Crusoe experience in comfort.

In such an idyllic setting the temptation is simply to laze peacefully on the beach and soak up a tropical sun tan. But if you want more there are amenities for water sports, such as windsurfing, kayaking, fishing, scuba diving and snorkeling. The coastal waters are exciting to explore and are especially rich in shoals of brightly coloured fish and exotic coral formations. You even have the opportunity to learn how to scuba dive in the comfort of the villa itself (see scuba diving section)

The largest and most popular beaches on Samui are Chaweng, Lamai, Bo Phut and Maenam. For those looking for a quieter place to spend their holiday or business trip, there is another twenty or so other beaches to choose from.

Santi Thani

This spacious beautifully appointed villa in the Santi Thani development commands spectacular sea views across the island, northward to Koh Phangan, the spectacular home to the families of whales, dolphins and monkeys.

Just a few minutes drive to the beach, 10 minutes drive to the new Santiburi international golf course, local restaurants, supermarkets and internet shops, this villa was built for the owners as a holiday home rather than for rental. Unlike many rented villas the owners have left everything in place in the villa, rendering it even more welcoming and personalized.

The Santi Thani development hosts some of the finest villas in Koh Samui, all offering individual design and characteristics, providing your dream holiday with a touch of exclusivity. Santi Thani is otherwise known as the 'Beverly Hills' of Samui.

"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

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!

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

"Pure Relaxation"

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
