“A home away from home!!!”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

Spent 9 nights at Waimarie, and my goodness what an experience. Read the other reviews about this property, and they are all so true. Joy and the staff made this a home away from home. Every need was catered too, and nothing was a bother. The meals, the hospitality and the accommodation was everything that one can only dream of. Joy was a dream. She arranged everything for us - transport, tickets to the muay thai boxing, tourist drive around the island, shopping, massages (and believe me we had many, and they came to the house) - and even transported two our of young people to the beach party at Nikki Beach!!! Location is great, as are the facilities on site. Would recommend Waimarie to anyone that wanted an experience in this Samui. Thank you thank you thank you to Joy and the staff.

Room Tip: All rooms are great, and have the same facilities. My tip would be to leave your room fan on all day...

This is a spectacular villa. We've just returned from a family get together over Christmas and New Year at Waimarie and had a truly magical time. Set right on a beautiful, quiet and safe beach it was the perfect spot for the kids (we had 8 with us ranging in age from 15 to six month old twins) - adults could kick back and enjoy lovely long lunches while being able to watch the children play in the pool and beach. Even the twins were well taken care of by Joy and her team and were often whisked away and entertained leaving us to eat in much appreciated peace!
The food was the best we ate on the island - and nothing was too much trouble, the chef would often whip up child-friendly pasta, 2-3 curries just for lunch - and even mush up fresh mango for the twins! On the baby note - it was the perfect villa, two proper cots were provided (not just travel cots) there was a bottle steriliser there (Joy also helped me wash-sterilise bottles which was a holiday in itself!) She also went out and bought nappies, wipes and food for them which meant I didn't have to take everything with me. And because all the living/entertaining space is on the beach front to make the most of the beautiful view the rooms are very quiet.
Everyone had a brilliant time - Joy and her team gave us an amazing holiday (including a magical beach BBQ , lanterns and fireworks on NYE - worth it, even if it isn't NYE!) and I would like to say a huge thank you. Waimarie is the best family-friendly villa we've stayed at - but would also be brilliant for adults only. Oh and if you can, ask Joy to arrange a boat trip for you - they pick you up right off the beach and we all loved it.

Room Tip: All the rooms are great - with exactly the same incredibly impressive bathrooms. There's just on...

Our family and friends gathered at this amazing villa to attend the wedding nearby of our daughter. The service, accommodation, meals and the amazing staff were exceptional. We would recommend this villa to anyone who would like a relaxing, family friendly holiday with fabulous food in a peaceful environment. Thank you especially to Joy for the extra touches she did and her support when I had a fall at the wedding and ended up in the local hospital. Even with this happening, we all had a great time and are looking forward to returning to our little paradise villa!!

This private villa is the total package - can not find a fault - primarily due to the Villa's onsite manager - "Joy", who just makes everything happen with effortless ease. Nothing is too much trouble. We all fell in love with Joy, and were very sad to depart. Wai Marie is ideal for small groups, up to 12 people max. We loved hanging out at the villa so much we chose not to venture our as much as we initially planned. The quality of the fresh food prepared by the chef was so unbelievably good it was pointless to head out and eat elsewhere. The 12 of us would all be back there in a heartbeat if possible. We miss Joy & Wai Marie.
