5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 May 2014

North east side of the island, 15 minute walk from the main ring road based in bophut Sami boat has more then enough to accommodate couples and families at a very fair price. All the Staff are very approachable, friendly and always had time to show or answer any queries. Villas are opened planned, clean, equipped and very private. Main pool is very nice to chill. Free shuttle to airport/beach daily. Food after 12pm try next door the silver bullet very tasty. Plus a few hotels in walking distance to pick out. If you want service on site by hand and foot or by the beach then look else where. if you like a good base to explore friendly people and that you can accommodate yourself independently than stay here. Think its unfair due to customers not looking into the facilities location or area enough to underscore an amazing accommodation. We spent 12 nights

Room Tip: All villas looked amazing.

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights at the end of May 2014. The service, staff, accommodation, cleanliness is unbeatable. Having our own pool was absolutely wonderful and made up for the fact that the closest beach is not a swimming beach, albeit picturesque. The resort has a free shuttle service twice a day to a lovely beach close by.
The beautiful bedroom had great built-in wardrobes with floor to ceiling mirrors, and the bathroom was almost the same size as the bedroom, with a great semi-outdoor rain shower.
No restaurant at the resort, but plenty of nice places to eat all within a 5 minute walk. Two convenience stores, plenty of ATM's, taxis etc all within easy walking distance. Huge fridge, microwave, toaster, kettle, flat screen plasma TV, DVD player - the list is endless! Internet access was high speed broadband.
For once the photographs on the website are not photoshopped but absolutely accurate of this stylish, well designed property. I highly recommend it.
We will definitely be back.

Stayed here for 7 nights with my mum. We loved it. The private pool was a godsend and the main pool was amazing too.
Do your research before you stay. Don't expect a swimming beach (we didn't as we read up before we booked) and don't expect a restaurant on site (as stated on their website). It was fun planning our daily excursions over our own supply of breakfast (bread from the 7 eleven). There are so many amazing restaurants to try and not too far. Either hire a car from reception or the staff will organise a ride for you...they are extremely helpful! Wifi was a bit dodgy in our room but as we were on holiday we didn't expect to be working...if we needed to check emails etc we just headed to the main pool where it worked perfectly.

Stayed in one of the new villas. Whisked from airport directly to room where we checked in smoothly and without any hassle. The room was just stunning and waking up each morning to blue skies and a direct view of your own private pool was incredible. A very romantic setting . Room service was impeccable and we highly rate our stay here. The villas are quiet and peaceful , we were able to sit out play music and relax and never hear any noise from our neighbours. The main pool by the reception is also fabulous for a swim . This hotel is in an ideal location and we would recommend hiring a scooter to get around the island where there is so much to see and do . We were there for Thai new year which was brilliant fun! Nearby are great little street eateries such as Sopa which we definitely recommend. Superb hotel - looking forward to our next visit !

Looking for accommodation for 5 nights in Koh Samui, we chose Samui Boat Lagoon. The stylish, well designed apartment did not disappoint with clean, luxury bedrooms, kitchen and living area and private pool. Arriving at close to midnight, the kids were straight in there and the accommodating staff drove the other half to the 7/11 for supplies to stock up the huge fridge. With stove, kettle, toaster and basic kitchen implements we breakfasted in our living area most mornings which was necessary as the resort does not have a bar or restaurant. The main pool is clean and deep and the local beach easily accessible down a path has a deep lagoon near the beach front for a dip. It is not, however, a very good beach with mud flats rather than sand. The local village is a 5 minute walk away - small but with a bakery, convenience store and a couple of bars. Places did seem to close early, though, and we did hanker for a more lively scene. Big Buddha Beach is 15 mins walk and a short taxi ride can get you to Fisherman's Village or Cheong Mon for a more vibrant experience. (The resort provides free shuttle bus to Cheong Mon.) Silver Bullet Bar next door provided good, reasonably priced food and free pool and we ate twice at Tango Beach (a couple of resorts down) with it's lovely beach-side restaurant and cocktail bar. Staff were very accommodating booking trips and taxis at our request - would be great if they had a small poolside bar to lively the place up.

This its our 1st time in koh samui. This hotel really give us the exclusive that we want. Not too far away from Chaweng which where the crowds are.. Near to the airport as well. Well recommended for couple or family group who wants more privacy with their holiday. And also everything its feel so new & clean. Staffs are very helpful too...the pool inside our room & the main pool are so big & comfy..well done to the owner...

love this holiday villa, love the mini private pool, the reception service is good. had a great stay. if there's a restaurant at the villa that serves breakfast it would be perfect!! the beach behind the villa its clean n nice but not really suitable to swim, a bit disappointed on that.
