Villa Rocca is simply stunning! Beautifully maintained, views to die for, well managed - perfect in every way! Carolyn goes above board in ensuring the booking, travel arrangements and tours are all catered for even before you leave home! Whilst you're there you have the reassurance of Jazz who is always on call to help with any difficulties you may have (small collision with a scooter!!) or requests and information you may need. The overall stars of Villa Rocca has to be Joy and Za - the on site staff. Truly made the stay phenomenal. Joy is THE most amazing cook - I think probably the best food we had was provided by Joy and Za - breakfasts, evening meals and BBQ all delicious and ample of it!! They keep the place immaculate and are super speedy when getting the cushions in just before a down pour!!
I think it is a good idea to have a car but not essential - taxi via Mr Kai are prompt and reasonable and many of the tours we booked the agents would collect you from the villa. Lovely restaurants fairly nearby but not in walking distance - in fact you couldn't walk back and forth the beach as to get those views you are up on a hill. The hills however were very useful for our keep fit sprints followed by a session in the villa gym - not all of our party of 8 participated, mainly the mad ones! The pool is perfect and the massage room that we had a glimpse of as it wasn't quite ready for us is perfectly set outside the pool area - there is a drop from the pool so small children would need to be supervised at all times.
I have nothing to negative to say about this luxurious super spacious villa - book it, you will not be disappointed!!
Carolyn was very helpful with my initial enquiry and subsequent booking. She was very informative and responded to any questions very quickly.
Everything was arranged professionally beforehand regarding our flight details for pickup, shopping requirements meals etc.
It was a pleasure corresponding with Carolyn and her thoughtful touch of supplying a bottle of bubbly for my special birthday was very much appreciated.
On arrival we were collected by courtesy mini bus and received a warm welcome at the villa by one of the customer relations team as well as Joy and Za. A good array of complimentary foods were also there for us on arrival.
Joy and Za, a truly lovely couple, looked after the villa, without being intrusive, and maintained a high standard of cleanliness throughout. They were very helpful and nothing was too much trouble in making sure our stay was enjoyable.
They were so gentle and caring when around my two young grandchildren.
I was very touched at Za playing his guitar while they sang happy birthday with my family.
We also experienced an excellent Thai meal and a BBQ cooked by them, while beforehand they arranged a beautiful set table.
The villa is very spacious which is fitted out with comfortable good quality furnishings as well as beautiful art. The infinity pool with comfortable loungers has amazing views, while the downstairs area with the pool table/tv room was a great place to chill. Also the gym has good quality apparatus.
There is such a large amount of space including several relaxing areas inside and out which is especially beneficial with a large family group.
The villa is in a private position on a hill and ideally situated for visiting Chaweng and only a 10 mins walk to a good 9 hole golf course. We used a taxi/mini bus at minimal cost to get about which we arranged through Joy.
A very useful mobile phone was given to us to use which had staff numbers, taxi etc.
All in all we had a truly wonderful stay for this special family occasion and we would highly recommend this first class property.
We were all so excited and looking forward to returning to luxurious Villa Rocca again this year. The beautiful venue with its amenities and services it has to offer did not fail to disappoint!
Villa Rocca again surpassed all our expectations!! We all had an amazing time again!
It truly deserves its continued award for Service for Excellance in every respect! The villa itself is in excellent condition and continues to be impeccably maintained. It is situated in lush tropical scenery with panoramic views of the sea and surrounding countryside. It is located conveniently close to the best beach on Koh Samui - Chaweng Noi. thus being perfectly suited to nature and beach lovers alike! With its excellent housekeeping and catering service, the housekeepers Joy and Za are always on hand to give support when needed and always make us feel very much at home. Having delicious Thai meals cooked for us and at a reasonable price, we all felt so pampered.
Villa Rocca is an excellent venue for groups and parties. I am sure we will all still be talking about this truly memorable experience until we return again next year!
From the time of booking to leaving Thailand we really couldn't have asked for more. Carolyn was able to answer any queries we had before our arrival.
We were met at the airport and taken to the villa where we were greeted by Joy and Za. The villa and surroundings are superb and we really couldn't have asked for more. We were a party of four adults and four children and there was plenty of space for all of us to socialise and have time apart.
Joy and Za not only kept the villa spotless while we were there but looked after us like old friends and cooked us some amazing food. There was nothing too big or too small to assist with.
We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Villa Rocca to anyone and would love to return again in the future.
Villa Rocca was even better than we expected ! The villa was huge with sea views from every room, it was very spacious and modern with big bedrooms, a huge living areas, great outdoor area and pool and amazing views! The staff were fantastic and cooked the most delicious BBQ's and Thai meals, a must if you stay ! I would highly recommend Villa Rocca to any big group travelling to Koh Samui. Thank you to Jazz and the staff for such an amazing holiday !
This is a lovely, large villa offering all the amenities listed and exceptionally managed by the local staff, Joy and Zar, who could not have been more helpful. Neither the beach nor restaurants (with one rather unsatisfactory exception) are within walking distance. Nevertheless, for many families/groups, this villa would, in normal circumstances, offer an attractive rental.
However, it should not currently be available to rent. At the bottom of the garden, perhaps 20 yards from the terrace, a new villa is being built. From 8 in the morning until 5 in the evening, every day of the week, we were subjected to the noise of construction - the constant whine of electric metal cutters interrupted only by the rumbling of cement mixers disgorging their product onto the site. Nothing could have been further from the tranquillity promised in the villa description. It is no exaggeration to say that this noise ruined our stay at Villa Rocca. And it is not going to be over any time soon. The construction is not due to be complete until October, and there are other building sites nearby as the estate undergoes development.
We do not understand why the owners did not alert us to a problem of which they could not have been unaware (the construction began many weeks before our arrival), enabling us to have made alternative arrangements. We rang them on our arrival to raise the issue with them, and were promised a call back. We received none. It was the only silence we had at Villa Rocca, but it spoke as loudly as the machine tools.
The villa is splendid and perfect for a large group of 10 adults and 2 children. It is located in the hills and you need transportation but this was easily arranged by the wonderful couple and manager and it is not expensive.
I cannot praise enough the couple who look after the villa; Joy and San , thank you so much for your efficiency, smiles, incredible attention to detail, your discretion and your wonderful meals.
I highly recommend this villa without any hesitation.
