“Secret Paradise”
Reviewed 2 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

From the moment you arrive through the gates there is a feeling of tranquility.
The lush gardens that surround the villa are home to an exotic array of wildlife.
Walking through the gate towards the main house you ascend the steps to the villa to be greeted by the most breathtaking view of the sea and its hues of greens.
The main house is a treasure trove of Thai antiquities that add an old world feel and blend in seamlessly with the architecture of the villa.
The sleeping quarters are separate to the main house each one tastefully decorated and allowing added privacy to your stay.
The location of the villa is next to a small fishing village that goes about its daily routine as if time has stood still.

Every morning you awaken to the sounds of lapping waves and the cacophony of tropical birds. The squirrels scuttle down from their perch to forage about for food, as you make your way to the pool to do morning laps on a carpet of frangipani’s.
Breakfast is a feast of tropical fruits accompanied by a Nespresso coffee, the villa is equipped with all those 21st century amenities that we seem unwilling to live without.

In this oasis you are far away from the masses and yet close enough to everything should you feel the need to seek out all that this island has to offer.
If you do manage to tear yourself away from the villa do not miss the sunsets.
Every night the horizon, which is dotted with islands, is bathed in swirls of pearly pink and tangerine fading to purple and blue. No sunset is alike.

The owners of the villa Peter and Ann are extraordinarily welcoming and helpful.
The staff here make you feel completely at home and their kindness and warmth are endearing. For those of you that want an authentic experience of Thailand this is the place to be.

“Stunning house, amazing location, divine food and perfectly relaxing.”
Reviewed 7 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

What a treat to stay in this luxurious traditional Thai house complete with lovely and talented chef Oh. The location is so quiet and peaceful but there is so much to do. Highlights for me were, drinks on the patio overlooking the the gorgeous sea views, relaxing beside the pool, wandering a few meters along the beach for the best Thai massage and the great hospitality. Loved it!

“Traditional Thai Paradise!”
Reviewed 31 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Traditional Thai Paradise

This was our first time to Thailand and Five Islands Beach House made our holiday and completely exceeded our expectations! The villa is about 30min drive from the airport and away from the main town and tourist area which is exactly what we wanted. We were warmly greeted with a welcome drink and refreshing cool towel from the property managers Jackie and Oh such a genuinely lovely couple.

You'll see from the photos this property is a traditional Thai styled villa, each of the rooms are beautifully decorated with Thai artwork.

The added bonus of this house is Oh is your personal chief and can make anything you desire on request and at a very affordable price. Oh also runs Thai cooking classes in her outdoor kitchen which we highly recommend. Prepare your taste buds for a delicious Thai gourmet feast!

The property is really well laid out, if your traveling with a group there is plenty of separation between the rooms which allows you to have privacy when needed. The pool is located in the gardens of the property so you are not exposed to any onshore wind. It was rather hot during our stay so we found the pool very refreshing or you may choose to take a dip in the ocean and take in the view.

Restaurants, local shopping and the mummified Buddha in the temple are within easy walking distance. If your looking for the perfect place to distress, relax and unwind then this is great value for money and we can't wait to return soon!

“Luxury, fine dining and a view that I have never seen even after visiting Samui for 7 years in a row!”
Reviewed 28 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

If Thai style villa with your own private chef, a stones throw away from the beach and the most picturesque view of the five islands is your thing then I would hands down recommend you stay at the Five Islands Guest House. This is our 7th year in a row visiting Samui and our stay here was second to none. My favourite times were having dinner on the open veranda with moonlight above the ocean and the five islands in the distance while being served the freshest seafood by the friendliest original thai family. Jacky and his wife went out of their way to accommodate us, entertain us and make sure we were happy. The location is perfect too, much quitter than Chaweng and non of the bother that comes with staying there. Total bliss, harmony and relaxation!

“Blissful and serene sanctuary”
Reviewed 12 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

The Five Islands Beach House in Taling Ngam is the perfect place for a dream escape. As you can see from the photographs it is a traditional style Thailand design built entirely of teak, with all the mod cons of beautiful bathrooms and a full sized kitchen. From the moment we arrived we were overcome by the beautiful layout of the gardens which provide perfect seclusion for those of us who want something special and away from the hustle and bustle of touristry areas. As it is right on the beach the views are gorgeous and the house is ideally situated with a large deck where one can relax in the evenings to watch the sunset. Jackie and Oh a lovely Thai couple are the caretakers. Oh is a trained chef and takes great pleasure in cooking a traditional Thai meal at your request. We would highly recommend it!

We were wanting a Thai experience for our stay on Koh Samui Island and found that in 'The Five Islands' beach house. It has traditional teak construction and furnishings with a beautiful sea view and stunning sunsets. The rooms were spacious and comfortable and the property was private with a nice inground pool. What completed our experience was the beautiful meals prepared by our on-site Thai managers Oh and Jacky. A holiday to remember. We would love to return.
