Why rent a Koh Samui Villa?
Renting a villa gives you the space and privacy you need and offers much better value for money than hotel accommodation, especially when you work out the rental rate on a per room or per person basis. You can visit the supermarkets and stock-up the villa’s refrigerator with all the food you need for your stay and can prepare your own snacks, cook your own meals or alternatively rent a villa Chef for your stay. Relax by the pool and take a cooling dip without worrying about your personal belongings. Turn up the music or enjoy a movie on the villa home theatre system without offending your neighbours or even have your very own fireworks show in your villa’s private garden.

What kind of Koh Samui Villas are Available?
Koh Samui villas are available to suit every spending plan and every need. Starting at the lower end of the spectrum are 2 bedroom villas in their own private gardens with private pool, a mid-range option might be a 3 or 4 bedroom sea-view villa with luxurious interiors and a top end example would be a completely opulent and fully staffed 5 or 6 bedroom villa on the beach or hilltop with panoramic island and sea-views. The rental rates across this spectrum are typically around $100 – $3000 USD per night.

Where is the best location to rent a villa?
Most Koh Samui villa renters request villa options within about 15 minutes drive of Chaweng and the highest density of villas are in the touristic NE of the island, between Chaweng and Bophut. The North of the island around Maenam and Bang Por has many bargains to be found as rates are typically around 30% cheaper.

What villa services can I expect?
Generally the lower end villas are cleaned twice weekly with towels and bed linen provided and changed regularly. Mid-range villas are usually swept and tidied every day and at the top end there may be as many as 10 full-time staff including the villa manager, a personal Chef, waiters, cleaners and gardeners.
