Listing Description

Villa Maphraaw is an exceptional five bedroom hillside villa with spectacular ocean views in Ban Tai on the North West coast of Koh Samui. The villa has a magnificent infinity edged pool, an impressive cascading water feature and large sun terraces.

The spaciousness and innovative layout of the villa makes it the ultimate tropical retreat for large families and couples sharing who appreciate privacy as well as spacious and luxurious open plan areas that can be enjoyed together. The captivating wooded hillside location of this impressive villa provides privacy and seclusion.

As soon as you step inside the Villa it becomes apparent that this property has been designed, built and furnished to exceptionally high standards. 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.

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.

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. The terrace has well chosen luxurious outdoor furnishings that encourage guests to relax and unwind. This area is particularly impressive after dark when the enchanting villa lighting creates an opulent and romantic atmosphere.

The Villa is located in the hills of Ban Tai 14.5 kilometers from Samui International airport. The villa is on a private estate that meanders its way through unforgettably beautiful wooded grounds.

The beach at Ban Tai is peaceful and tranquil with fine white sand and superb views to the neighboring islands. Ban Tai has plenty of convenience stores, local restaurants and a spattering of western restaurants as well as bars and beach bars. The village of Maenam is in easy reach of Ban Tai by car and has shops, restaurants and bars. Beyond Maenam is the romantic fisherman’s village of Bophut that lies way from the main ring road and has an impressive selection of shops, bars and restaurants.

The commercial center of Nathon is also an easy drive from Ban Tai and has lots of interesting markets to explore as well as a bustling pier that is home to the mainland ferries and a fishing port.

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 the Villa.  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.

Luxury hideaway in Koh Samui

I booked this villa as it seemed to suit my needs for a spacious property away from the bustle of the main resorts

It exceeded our expectations. It was on a hillside overlooking a forest of palm trees, and the coast. The accommodation was perfect for our family, with all space you could need and rooms for the children to relax in and watch films in. The pool area was lovely, and was safe for our five year old daughter. The accommodation is very flexible. It actually has five bedrooms, all en-suite, and ten people could fit in it comfortably, we used the three top bedrooms and it did not feel too big for our family of four

The villa is five minutes away from the main ring road around the island, so with a car, everywhere is easily accessible

Probably the thing which stood out over other villas we have stayed in, was the service which came with the villa. We were collected at the airport, and dropped off at the end of the stay, our car hire was organised for us, and was delivered to the villa. The place was cleaned daily, and there is a chef available if required, who did a fantastic job, and was very reasonable. There is also internet provided, and a large selections of Dvd's and Cd's in the villa.

Stuart, the villa manager was on hand if we needed anything, and he made sure that we had the relaxing and enjoyable stay that we needed.

I would have no hesitation in recommending this property to anyone

This Villa rocks!!!

I had a great time in this villa. We had a party of 10 people staying. Stewart was a great help and stocked our fridge with ice cold beer prior to our arrival and helped us rent scooters delivered to the villa. This villa is on a very high hill. Do rent a car or scooter or else you'll be sorry walking for 30+ mins up a monstrous hill. The villa was tastefully designed with luxury. Everything was available for a vacation rental to pots and pans to dvds/CDs and washer and dryer. The only downside was that a/C was in every room except the living areas such as kitchen, livingroom, tv room. They provided you with fans and ceiling fans, but it was really unbearable in May trying to hang out in those areas without a/C. But it made a great excuse to hang out in the pool all day/night with the outdoor speaker system blasted to our favorite music. Overall I had a great experience. Stewart was very helpful and If I ever had a chance to visit Koh Samui again this villa would definitely be first on my mind.

A dream home on a dream island

My husband and I stayed at the villa from 01/07/2011 till 22/07/2011 and this was by far the best Villa we have ever stayed in. Stuart, Owner/Manager has certainly made this home very comfortable for his guests. The villa is equipped with everything one can possibly need and more. We felt very at home and quite spoilt whilst staying there. We wanted for nothing.
The view is magnificent and the furniture is very mod and comfortable. Stuart was always just a phonecall away and ready to help in any way (thanks for bringing Mike's id book to the airport Stuart, this was going beyond the call of duty). We would not hesitate to recommend this villa to anyone and we will also most certainly be back.

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 and Lida!

Wow: A great place to hang out

We have just returned from a fantastic holiday at your Villa. We were only there for 6 days as part of a 3 week holiday in Thailand and I can say these were the best days of it. This villa is soo quiet yet you are only 5 minutes away from the hustle and bustle of Maenam. It has been well maintained (looks brand new to be honest) and the view is spectacular. A rental car or motorbike (we went for the mopeds which were fine) is recommended, although we did use the taxi service the villa has to offer on a couple of nights. Trust me, if you are thinking of booking this villa...go for it... from 8 very happy people from the UK
