We spent four days at villa 3. Although the villa is not located in tourist spots, we actually found this as a plus, getting away from the busy shops and roads etc.
We went in low tide season so beach was quite exposed during the day and only in late afternoon when the tide was coming in, we could kayak to Four Seasons which has a nicer beach and deeper water where you could swim. But beach is very quiet with only a few locals walking their dogs and some fisherman during early morning and sunset. I felt like having a beach entirely to ourselves unlike Fisherman's village where its busy all day. Sunset on the beach was beautiful and we sat there to watch everyday.

Villa itself is very practical but shower has low water pressure. Bedrooms are great with sufficient aircon. Sunset was on the beach and we sat there to watch everyday.
Khun Tui, the villa manager was great in making sure we are okay everyday. We have the chef prepared our dinner for us for all three nights while lunch was outside. But we found our dinner was much better than the restaurants in Chaweng and Fisherman's village. Food was fresh and cooked to just what we wanted, The chef even prepared desserts for us everyday.
I would say service was impeccable.

Our relaxing vacation began the moment we landed at the beautiful and laid-back Koh Samui airport, were met and taken to the villa by the solicitous staff that run the villa properties. Villa 3 is right on the beach, and a perfect getaway for two families with kids. The villa has 2 good sized bedrooms with baths, and one tiny room with 4 bunk beds for the kids all housed in one building; and a separate sala attached to the pool which housed a seating area, kitchenette, dining area, bathroom, etc. The furniture especially in the seating areas was a little worn, but quite comfortable for lounging around in. The beach which was just a step away from the villa was kept clean by the staff, and the sea is ideal for kids to swim in, being very calm and shallow even during high tide.

The housekeeping staff assigned to our villa and the chef we had hired for our one week stay end-December really pampered us, and tried to ensure that we got whatever we needed; and of course the food was delicious! Simple thoughtful touches really added to the feeling of being pampered by everyone there. While we did step out on occasion, we were quite happy to spend most of our holiday in the villa, alternating between the pool and the beach, between eating and just gazing out at the sea...

Tui, the villa manager, was on hand almost throughout the day, and often went out of his way to ensure that we were comfortable and enjoying our stay. Since the villa is away from all the busier parts of Koh Samui, he handled all arrangements whenever we wanted to go out, including booking tables, transport, etc. When one of our kids was unwell, he personally fetched medicine from a pharmacy to save us the trouble of finding a taxi and going to the nearest town.

We had a thoroughly relaxed and pampered holiday, thanks to the villa, its location, and of course Tui and his team.

This villa (number 3) is great! The location is away from all of the hustle and bustle of Chaweng but that is part of its charm. It is on the busy ring road but the noise of the lapping waves helps the car noise disappear when you are out the back choosing between a swim in the pool or the sea. The bedrooms are housed in a separate area from the dining and sitting area. This sitting area is opened up during the day and has a deck area with sun loungers on it. You can step directly from the sitting area into the pool which is fun!

The beds and rooms are enormous and the bathrooms are superb. There is a small room that houses two lots of bunk beds which would suit small children but be bit small for teenagers and it is air conditioned. There is a plentiful supply of moisturisers and other lotions including aloe Vera gel. The downstairs bathroom has a large shower and spa bath. There is a glass roof over this which could give others staying with you a bit of an eyeful if they happened to look down from the top of the stairs! Might have to negotiate shower times. There is very efficient air conditioning at night which helps dull the sound of the traffic which does lessen at night.

The gardens are lovely and it is so pretty to see all of the butterflies and tiny birds feeding from the flowering plants. There are plenty of pool towels that are replaced daily. Large amounts of bottled drinking water is also supplied. Mr Tui and his staff are attentive and helpful - especially for organising taxis and hiring cars. Our daughter said she had been bitten by a bug and had a slight rash and calamine lotion was quickly brought out for her to use. The breakfasts are very simple and may not cater to everyone's needs but they were fine for us. There is a great little local restaurant just down the beach which boasts simply prepared local seafood and tasty drinks. You can also hire kayaks.

This villa is a great spot and you will not want to leave the grounds.

We've been visiting Koh Samui second time. Previously we had stayed in a 5* hotel, but this time decided to get some privacy and booked this villa, and this time we took our small kids with us. There were 2 families in our company - 2 couples, 4 kids and we fitted perfectly. Despite kind of distant location from entertainment and supermarkets we enjoyed our vacation in villa. Lovely staff (especially Mr. Tui) made our stay very comfortable. Lack of people in the area and especially on the beach is a great benefit for family with kids comparing to overcrowded and polluted Chaweng or other big beaches. Loved the option of inviting a local chef for lunch/dinner (1500 bht per meal + food supply from supermarket which was around 2000 bht), everything was delicious and 100% fresh. Nearest restaurant is 5 minutes walk form villa, nearest 7eleven is 10 minutes walk, nearest big Tesco Lotus supermarket is in Ang Thong which is 10 minutes by car . We had a car and it usually took not more than 30 minute to most distant places on the island. Would love to go there again with a bigger company (there are 3 similar neighboring villas).

Even though the pricing of the villa we stayed at was a little over our budget, we were not disappointed at all by our decision to stay there anyway. The place was amazing - nice big rooms, great bathroom, a large infinity pool, step out of the villa onto the beach, walk in the water on the beach as the tide comes in towards the evening, listen to the waves at night, have amazing views of the sea and surrounding islands - and that is the location.

For the service, we have Mr. Tui to thank - he has his duo of helpers took care of our every little need while we were there. We have a 3 month old daughter, and when we had our breakfast, one of the ladies who were helping out used to babysit our daughter in the most adorable way - our daughter was always laughing with her - so much that we started to speak to our daughter in Thai, since we figured she enjoys Thai sounds :D

They will fulfill your every need to the best of their ability. From sourcing wine bottles that you want for your dinner, to ensuring that you are getting fresh coconut for your breakfast. We had a very good time.

One night, we asked to eat dinner in the villa, and a chef came in to cook for us. And we let them know what we needed, and all the raw material was so fresh when they brought it in - it was shopped just for that night meal.

I definitely recommend a stay there - it may not be a 5 star, but the overall experience is definitely 5 stars.

We found this place on the internet (latestays) as we absolutely hated the resort we'd booked in and I have to say the Emerald Residence Villa was just wonderful. It's out of the way - you need a car or taxi to get to Restaurants but it's beautiful and peaceful, fully functioning kitchen, excellent bathrooms and a huge pool, at the end of the garden is the beach. The onsite staff is wonderful, you have your own manager bring you continental breakfast (lots to eat including amazingly prepared fresh fruit) in the morning and he calls in again during the day to check that everything is OK. We're not used to that sort of service and loved it. We got a great rate through latestays - the same as we paid the the god-awful resort we were first in. I highly recommend this place if you are looking for a quiet, away from the crowds holiday with all the comforts of home
