Our wedding day at Samui Beach Village was the most magical day. The detail and effort that went into our day by the staff was outstanding. It's a day we will never forget. It was a perfect location. Thanks to all the staff that made us feel so special.

Our first time in Thailand and we were not disappointed. Location was excellent, beach very private. Villa was pristine and perfect for the 5 of us. Restaurant and bar were excellent. Location was good, as we could get to most of the best places. We used the resorts own cars which were all new and the drivers very knowledgeable. The staff could not do enough for us and Dada, James and Pui were like old friends. We would definitely return here and would recommend to all.

I have stayed at SBV twice now and I highly recommend this place. The villas are prestine, beach access and views, professional and friendly staff, great food and amenities. Very well managed. I would highly recommend staying at this resort over that of a hotel.

Room Tip: I have stayed in the apartments, 2 bedroom and 3 bedroom villa. I prefer the villas , but the apartm...

We stayed on this complex for 16 days to celebrate our Ruby Wedding. From the moment we were picked up at the airport (all arranged prior to arrival) til the moment we left, we were made to feel special on the complex.
The complex itself consists of a number of luxury villas, a restaurant, which also delivers to your villa if required, a communal swimming pool as well as individual pools, a childrens' club/activity area, security gates, and pretty much a private beach.
There was also a spa area offering a variety of massage treatments. The owners of the complex, Jane and Phil, were evident most of the time, and everything went smoothly. Nothing was too much trouble. If we needed a taxi, one was there straight away. If we ran out of filtered water, a new one was delivered and fitted within minutes. We were furnished with a mobile phone for use whilst there which was pre-primed with relevant numbers.
As a family group of 10, with 4 children under 7 and 2 over 60's we had everything we needed. Our villa was cleaned every day, the pool area was spotless and unlike many places, we were even kept stocked up with pool/beach towels.
We arrived as guests and left as friends. We are already looking at planning another trip. A superb location.

Room Tip: Villa Astasia was perfect for our size group, and the owners, Roger and Alva Fisher were very helpfu...

We travelled from the uk to samui meeting family from Australia. It was the perfect holiday for all of us. 2 families both with 3 children each from age 3-8. Samui beach village is the perfect mix of having your own villa whilst still having the benefits of a small resort. You can be as independent as you want but all the facilities and staff outside of your villa are fab. The beach is not a good swimming beach but great for walks and games and paddling. The restaurant and food was so good catering for kids as well with the bonus of choosing to eat in the restaurant or have it delivered to your villa. Activities for the kids were available if needed although we didn't use the kids club but in general the staff couldn't do enough to make our holiday special. It was the most relaxing chilled holiday I have had since having children!!! We would go back in a heartbeat!!

My family recently stayed at Villa Baan Khwam Rak, the resort has excellent facilities and having our own private pool was terrific. The staff at the resort are excellent, very friendly and nothing is a problem for them, loved the buggy rides to our villa. The location is very good with the beach in walking distance and the resort is in a beautiful location and has a very relaxed atmosphere, not to mention the tranquillity. Jane and Phil are great hosts and their staff are a credit to them. We stayed for 7 nights and have already booked for another 11 nights we loved it so much. This is a five star resort so whilst it is not cheap I believe it is worth every penny. The villas are spacious and comfortably furnished and all come with private swimming pools and it is a great place for families to stay. Thank you Phil, Jane, Nicky, Emma, Kasia and all the gardeners, cleaners, restaurant and spa staff for a wonderful holiday, we really didn't want to leave. See you all again in December and we look forward to seeing in the New Year with you all!! :-)

Room Tip: I would recommend staying in one of the Villas as having the space and your own private pool is wond...
