“Wonderful trip in Golden Palm”
Reviewed 18 April 2013 for a stay in February 2013

Sorry for late rating. But everytime I think backforth about our staying in the villa, I always feel exited. We went to Samui with big group of my family. We were shocked by the splendid view and luxury decoration of the villa upon arrival. And we got warmly welcome from the staff in the Villa. The villa manager Rhys gave us very helpful suggestion for how to arrange the days on Samui. And it was proved that his arrangement is most suitable for us. Especially the sunset snorkelling trip with Rhys' speed boat. This is the most wonderful and unforgottable sunset I've ever seen. Also thanks for the Chef Ms.Tuay. The dinner in the villa is even much better than the restaraunts we've been on the island. So we didn't go anywhere for dinner and lunch in the last several days, just in villa. I will definitely recommend this villa to my friends who will go to Samui. And finally thanks Rhys, Ying, Tuay and all the other staffs again for your sweet help.

“Out of this world !”
Reviewed 30 March 2013 for a stay in March 2013

The Villa and staff way surpassed our expectations. The food served up by Tuay the Chef equalled some of the top restaurants we have frequented in Thailand. This caused as to eat in-villa much more than we had anticipated.

Yin, the Villa Manager was excellent. She ensured our every need was met without being intrusive.

The Villa can be a struggle to get back to late at night (mainly because the taxis stop short of the villa and there is a hill to negotiate by foot) but this was a small price to pay for the magnificent views it afforded.

We will certainly look to return at some time in the future as we do not anticipate any 5 star hotels living up to the standard of this villa.

“The perfect package”
Reviewed 9 December 2012 for a stay in November 2012

I recently stayed at the Golden Palm Villa with a group of friends, and I can honestly say it was an experience I am unlikely to forget. Right from the get go from the airport, our incredibly capable and likeable concierge Rhys was there to put us at ease. Whether it be recommending or organising activities for us, cooking up some tasty Thai dishes, or simply keeping the villa tidy, Rhys, the manageress Yin and the friendly and reliable staff always went above and beyond to ensure that we were happy with our stay.

And they succeeded. The villa is gorgeous. It went far beyond my expectations; the photos don't do it, nor the vista from the pool area or the balcony, any justice. While the weather wasn't ideal in the end, the villa was undoubtedly my favourite place to stay during this trip (I stayed at two other places), in large part thanks to Rhys and his enthusiastic attitude, so a massive thanks to him! I highly recommend the Golden Palm Villa for anyone and everyone looking for a luxurious and well-maintained place to stay in Koh Samui.

“Beyond Expectations”
Reviewed 7 December 2012 for a stay in November 2012

The Golden Palm Villa provided myself and friends with an experience we are never likely to forget. The luxurious villa combined with the lovely and very helpful concierge and staff created a comfortable atmosphere that made for a happy environment. The first impression from us all was 'wow'; the villa is so much larger than the pictures give it credit for.

Would highly recommend this villa for anyone looking to relax, have fun and enjoy the best Koh Samui has to offer. Definitely appllicable for all ages.

“Best Villa, Best Staff”
Reviewed 7 December 2012 for a stay in November 2012

The week we arrived it started raining which put us down from the start. The Staff on the other hand found every way possible to find things for us to do to make it the best holiday ever. Big Thanks to Rhys the Villa Manager who gave us a list of great activities to do even when raining, gave us information on where the best places to go for each activity and the safest and way to go about it. Checking in on us each day to make sure what ever we wanted to do happened. Would have to say the trip would have not been anywhere near as good with out Rhys. The manageress and the rest of the staff were as friendly as anyone could be and i always felt safe with them around. The food cooked by the chef was better than any restaurant we went to. The Villa is very well maintained and found no problems with it at all, i still cant believe we were able to stay in such a wonderful place.

“The most amazing accommodation I've ever stayed in”
Reviewed 7 December 2012 for a stay in November 2012

The Golden Palm villa welcomed me and my friends with open arms from the moment we stepped off the plane at Koh Samui airport. We were greeted by our fantastic concierge, Rhys, who was helpful every second of our stay.

Every day we were looked after with the highest of service by the manageress, Yin, as well as the friendly maids and chef.

The villa itself is beautiful and accommodated for my friends and I perfectly. It also has the most amazing views of the ocean which we loved waking up to every morning!

I would recommend this villa to anyone I know and I'll definitely be returning in the future.

“Second time around and still a great exprience.”
Reviewed 1 October 2012 for a stay in September 2012

This was our second visit in 3 years to Golden Palm Villa. The staff are fabulous lead by Kun Yin who ensures every element of your visit (and other activities on Koh Samui) are organised perfectly. The accommodation is spacious and remains private (if you want) for more than one family.The 2 master bedrooms are huge and include separate ensuite with shower, dressing rooms and spa and the other 3 bedrooms are large...all with ensuite. Communal lounge area has nice furniture, leather lounges, good yamaha surround sound system, digital projector and drop down screen. adjacent o the lounge is a fully equipped kitchen with wine fridge, large refrigerator/freezer/ice-maker, but as all meals are prepared by the staff downstairs in a commercial kitchen this space was just used by us for mixing drinks.
The villa is about to undergo a complete renovation (we were the last group of guests).
A full breakfast to your requirements is prepared every morning and evening meals (if required) are superb and probably rate among the best quality food on the island.
The infinity pool is large, deep and superbly maintained...table tennis, treadmill and cross trainer are available downstairs if you so require.
The villa is a stand alone property (with no other accommodation within 300 meters) and offers fantastic views across Chewang.
The villa has a 38 foot speedboat which can be chartered for private tours of all the islands...we have done this twice and I strongly recommend you avoid the 'cattle class' tours and do yourself a favour...its fabulous.
I would recommend you hire a vehicle if staying at the villa as this gives you the flexibility to really maximise your holiday experience and avoids taxi issues.
We'll definitely be going back for a third time.
