“A little piece of heaven.”

person found this review helpful

We stayed in Villa Nirvana last year and I couldn't possibly fault it. There was a group of us aged between 18-28 so this put a lot of rental owners off as I can only imagine they thought we may cause trouble or possibly leave the place in a state. This did not put the lovely owner Julia off who was the most helpful person I spoke to. She kept in contact to make sure are stay was what we hoped it would be, (which it was and much more), She gave great recommendations, Organised transport for us, contacted us to see if we arrived safely and much more... She went the extra mile to give great customer service. The villa itself is 10/10. Great location, beautiful surroundings, helpful staff, incredibly clean, Very private and luxurious. The pool looks over its beautiful views. We spent 6 weeks travelling Thailand and the best memories I have are from the stay in this villa. There is a great food market near by where we stocked up on meat and fish and came home and spent the day having a barbeque, drinks, lounging in the sun and swimming looking over the beautiful island. It was heavenly. Thank you so much Julia. HIGHLY RECOMENDED! Will be Returning hopefully soon!

“Lives up to its name”
Reviewed 27 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We stayed here for a week in August with our two children who both absolutely loved it. In particular they loved the pool and the space of the villa. We loved the superb views and the quiet, elevated position which was just perfect for unwinding, especially after busy days of exploring the bustling sights of Samui. The villa has so much space that you can really spread out and get away from things, but good wifi means you can stay in touch if you need to.
The staff who greet you are very friendly and helpful, and can give you advice about where to find things and where to go, arrange a hire car and so on. Villa Nirvana is on a private estate which is secure, so you have plenty of peace of mind.
We will definitely return to Villa Nirvana, it is simply beautiful.

Thank you so much for sending us this wonderful review.

The villa means a huge amount to us, and to hear of your pleasure is seriously very rewarding.

We do our best for our guests, as can be witnessed by your positive comments on the team. We are so fortunate to have them all there.

The reviews we receive always mention the welcome as well as the airiness of the villa and of course the views.

Thank you very much. It says it all!

And of course we very much look forward to your return

“Absolute perfection!”
Reviewed 15 August 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Our stay at Villa Nirvana as it's name implies provided an ideal condition
for rest, great beauty and peacefulness. The views are spectacular, the
surrounding flora and fauna never cease to amaze & the views of any
approaching storms could take your breath away....all well worth the journey
uphill to experience every day.

Relaxation either by the pool or in the rear overlooking the pond with it's
hypnotic inhabitants leaves you in an constant state of ...'NIRVANA'. Such a
lovely place to unwind and find absolute pleasure enjoying the natural
beauty of Samui.

The villa is well equipped for any holiday needs, even in the kitchen, if so
inclined...all the utensils and equipment required to explore Thai cooking
at its finest attempt, courtesy of any pre-packed herbs, veg & meats found
in 'Tesco lotus in nearby Nathon.'

We enjoyed exploring Samui everyday whether by area, food, spas or shopping
and would like to share our experience and make some recommendations simply
to try if you get the chance...in Nathon, the shopping provided a relaxed
access to goods, souvenirs, cloths, whilst Maenam walking street has a
market atmosphere and many delicious varieties of local or expat food stalls
& indeed local family run Thai restaurants certainly never disappoints.

We enjoyed a huge array of cuisine with an abundance of Thai hospitality on
every occasion. More locally surrounding the villa in Nathon, 'Lucky
Restaurant', the Bang Po Restaurants are located directly on the beach and
offer an ideal spot for sunsets. At the bottom of the hill, TheSea, has a
restaurant on the beach serving great dishes and is immediately located to
the villa.

Further afield...approx 10 minutes in Maenam, Angela's bakery for
breakfasts, pies or home bakes...we used Cucina, an Italian for take aways
on occasion. A further 5 or so minutes in Bophut we would recommend Zazen
for extra special occasions, Fishermans village offers many eateries and
some great casual bars for a sundowner! Closeby try Adhoc restaurant for
lunch, snack or dinner...all dishes are very tasty if you wish a change from
Thai food. Oceans 11 in Bang rak is another hidden gem!

We had thoroughly enjoyable, peaceful & relaxing holiday in 'Villa Nirvana'
and would highly recommend anyone to visit and experience all the villa and
Samui can offer you. Thankyou all....

Thank you so much for submitting this review.

We are so pleased that you were happy at the villa and that the staff made your holiday stress free.

You certainly saw the island and all it has to offer, well done for being able to pull yourselves away from the pool and view!

several guests have mentioned that they just loved the villa and the pool so much, it was difficult to pull themselves away.

I am really glad it was a good holiday for you all and am very grateful for you taking the time to write a review.

“A home from home”
Reviewed 7 January 2014 for a stay in December 2013

This is a really beautiful property high up in the hills in the north of the island. The views from the villa are fantastic and Julia, the owner, and staff on site looked after us fantastically helping us to arrange excursions and answering our questions. This villa is not in a resort and the road to reach it is not for the faint-hearted. Unlike the rest of Thailand taxi drivers in Samui do not operate on meters and there seems to be some reticence when you ask them to take you to Santi Thani ( the area where the villa is located). I would strongly recommend hiring a four by four for your stay. Not only to get back to the villa but to be able to reach the better parts of the island.

The villa itself has everything you need from board games to a good selection of books and DVDs so that you can really relax and unwind. The decoration is lovely and you can arrange to have dinner cooked for you and massages by the pool. When we arrived the welcome pack with coffee, tea, fruit, eggs and bread was a huge help.

There are outstanding and cheap no frills seafood restaurants along a narrow strip of beach when you turn left at the bottom of the hill (Bang Po). turning right out of Santi Thani and going east there is a fun night market on Thursday at Maenam and Friday at Bophut fisherman's village, the latter having nice shops, and more mid range restaurants.

A really lovely place we will definitely go back.
