“Amazing villa, staff, views, food . . we shall return.”
Reviewed 2 May 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We have just returned from an amazing 10 day stay at VistaSamui . . We were apprehensive before we went because sometimes pictures tell lies, but the pictures of VistaSamui are spot on .. Being there is in fact better. . The views across the valley and the sea to the 5 Islands in the distance are worth every penny alone. .. The service from Pai and Tin is second to none and our dealings with the owner Dave were flawless, he's an extremely helpful and witty host! (Even for an Ipswich fan!) . . . . Everything was perfect, the pool, the pool table, the loungers, the spacious villa, the decor, the sala. . . list goes on, in fact the villa was so perfect and relaxing that most days we just stayed there, chilled out and drank cold beers. . . Dave, thank you, we shall be back, and so may many of friends once we have spread the word. . A million thanks form the Wilsons of Norfolk. . Cheers.

“the most magnificent holiday home”
Reviewed 8 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We arrived at Ko Samui airport to find our luggage had decided to stay in Bangkok. Tin, the driver was waiting for us and took us the the villa where we were met by Pi, who is the housekeeper. Her English is limited but better than my Thai and communication was easy. She took all the stress away sorted out our luggage. The initial reaction from all of us when we walked in was "amazing". We were away with our three children aged 18 -25 and they were blown away with the house. The views from all the room was breathtaking overlooking green forests looking out to the sea. The master bedroom was beautifully furnished as were the other two bedrooms, all three were good doubles. Both the bathrooms were furnished with new toothbrushes with soaps and toothpaste as well as plenty of towels. Downstairs, the two main receptions with their bifolding doors were stunning and beautifully furnished with extensive DVD collection. There was also a pool table. What we loved about the house was every morning Pi would open up all the bi folding doors, set breakfast and prepare fresh fruit for us to consume. There was always ample towels by the pool and Pi was always available if needed. Tin drove us all over the island with an huge smile every day and we made the most of him making sure we saw all the beaches, restaurants and other attractions. the wifi in the house was excellent and never failed and we were able to run many devices at good speed. They really made the holiday and we cant wait to get back there again.

“AMAZING!”
Reviewed 20 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

ABSOLUTLEY AMAZING! The house looks exactly as pictured with amazing views overlooking Nathon. Tin and Pai, who help with driving arrangements and tiding of the house daily, were amazing and took such great care of us; we literally didn’t need to lift a finger. We stayed on the island 5 days and it just didn’t seem long enough. I spoke with many other visitors on the island, and we had it MADE compared to others staying at other area villas. Here are a few reasons why VISTASAMUI should be your ONLY option when staying on Koh Samui. 1. The house is amazing and if you don’t want to leave you don’t have to. 2. If you do want to leave the house, Tin is available to take and pick you up from any destination! He was on-time and always available when needed. 3. Pai is absolutely wonderful making sure that in the home you are well taken care of. She’ll even cook for you if asked and lastly it is close to Nathon which is a cute town that I feel is overlooked on the island but has so much to offer.

“Fantastic”
Reviewed 19 September 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Vista Samui is the perfect place to get away from the stresses & strains of everyday life and to savour the delights of Koh Saumi.
We spent 2 weeks there in July and were looking for the ideal place to chill and Vista Samui exceed our expectations on all counts.
The initials booking process was direct with the Villa owner, Dave Bedford, and he was extremely efficient, professional and helpful dealing with all our queries speedily and providing excellent tips & advice.
The villa itself is located in the most spectacular setting with fantastic views over the ocean. The villa has been designed to the highest standards and is luxurious and fantastically well equipped and everything is in tip top condition.
Pi and Tin, who live next door, look after your every need from early morning until late at night and always do so with a cheery smile. They are both wonderful people and they just couldn't do enough for us and nothing was too much trouble. The villa was always spotlessly clean, Pi greeted us every morning with freshly cut up fruit and Tin took us to the local fruit seller to buy it when we were running low! Having a car and driver was absolutely fantastic, especially as Tin is such a good, safe driver. It meant we could visit some out of the way places and eat wherever we fancied in the evenings.
All in all a fantastic place to relax, get away from everything and we will be back!

“Samui Paradise”
Reviewed 2 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

The owner of Vista Samui has the big ticket items sorted:
1. A vehicle at one's disposal, incl a very accommodating driver
2. A chilled and comfortable environment
3. High speed internet
4. Pool table, stocked bar, books, DVDs and a serious selection of TV channels for when one just wants to veg, and
5. Live in staff who are happy to assist however they can.

It is not often that expectations are exceeded when booking via a web site, however I am happy to say that ours have been. From the on-time pick up from the airport, to the cool towels and welcome drinks on arrival to the fantastic Thai meal and sad goodbyes, our holiday at Vista Samui has been nothing but fantastic. The villa caters for all ages and especially to stressed-out working parents. The kids have been easily entertained by means of the pool, pool table, and DVDs, whilst the parents have been able to chill around the pool, either in or out of the sun. Tin, the driver, is at one's disposal for shopping trips and other outings, knowing where all the touristy spots are and thus there is no need to book through a "middle-man". Pi looks after the cleaning requirements and will happily assist in the kitchen during meal preparation and cooking.

The added bonus for fitness fanatics is the hill up to the house and beyond, that provides a serious heart racing calorie burning start to one's day.

On a final note, as a female I had a few recommendations for the owner Dave but one mail and the recommendations were taken on board and were being addressed before we left. Dave takes a keen interest in ensuring yr stay at Vista Samui is the best it could possibly be.

Would I recommend Vista Samui to friends and family ... I already have!!

“A very special villa”
Reviewed 21 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

A stunning villa with fabulous views. Our children appreciated the pool table, the extensive film selection and the fabulous infinity pool. Pi and Tin are extremely helpful, Tin took us to many beautiful beaches and local restaurants and is a whizz at the BBQ whilst Pi cooked a delicious Thai dinner and generally tidied up after us. Would definitely recommend this villa to anyone who does not want to be in the thick of things and who would enjoy the peace, tranquillity and stunning views which this villa provides.
