“Felt like a movie star”
Reviewed 23 July 2013 for a stay in May 2013

Me and a friend travelled down to Koh Samui for a 3 day break, we stayed at this Villa.

The Villa is located on the side of a mountain which affords it some of the best views i have witnessed, we were collected from the airport and transported to the villa in an air conditioned minibus. When we arrived at the villa mark the owner was there to greet us, and he introduced us to all the staff (i think 4 in total) and they were all friendly. They presented us with an ice cold face towel and fresh coconut drink.

After we had been given the tour and had settled into our rooms, we met out on the terrace, where the in house chef had cooked a wonderful Thai dinner for us, and we ate with the amazing backdrop of the view. After fod the satff all retreated but before going gave us a mobile number to call if we needed anything.

The rooms were amazing, mine had its own Jacuzzi on the balcony, the sheets and linen were all egyptian cotton.

to summarise i have only ever seen homes like this in the movies, and all the cetainly treated us as we were movie stars.

The only downside is that i cant stay here forever.

“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.
