This was probably the most romantic and beautifully set villa I've stayed. Although the kitchen is fairly basic, the pool, jacuzzi and views were outstanding. Reasonable price and after seeing the hotels in the area, definitely the best choice. Dave always on standby if needed and so helpful. Lovely place.

Management response:

So pleased that you liked the villa, good news for you if you decide to return in the future is we will be installing a brand new kitchen with granite worktops etc in a couple of months time.

As soon as you walk through the villa entrance the views take your breath away. We could not have been more delighted with the romance the setting conveys. Everything we expected of the villa was over exceeded, from been picked up by David and the welcome we received. The facilities made our stay as enjoyable as would have hoped, especially...

About the neighbourhood
Villa Sapphire is located at Sitara Retreat which is situated close to the southern tip of the island. Nearby to the villa many of the main attractions are only a short drive away, which include Lamai beach, Butterfly Garden, Waterfalls, Aquarium, Elephant trekking, Grandmother, Grandfather Rocks, horse riding, kayaking, Thai cookery courses, amongst others. There are many fine and varied restaurants serving Thai and Western dishes, all within 5-10 minutes drive from the villa.The southern part of the island still has that rustic charm appeal that the whole of Samui boasted years ago. The beaches on the south remain undeveloped, due mainly to the shallow coastline.
Getting around
The southern part of the island, where Villa Sapphire is located, remains pretty much unspoiled, especially compared to the north. The best way to get around is the use of a car or moped, where we can assist you in the rental. With the villa being located in a quieter part of the island, driving can be a more pleasurable experience. To go to the beach, restaurants, local attractions etc, we do strongly recommend the hiring of your own transport. If you do not feel to be a confident driver, there are several private hire car companies (of which we can give you telephone numbers) that can pick you up at the entrance of Sitara, which is a 4 or 5 minute walk down the hill.

There is secure parking at the villa
Car advised
How to get there
Airport: Samui International Airport: 18.0 km
Railway: Suratthani: 80.0 km
Ferry: Nathon: 16.0 km
A complimentary pick up is provided from the Airport or Ferry Terminal to Villa Sapphire and return (one in each direction).

The hiring of a car or moped is the easiest way to get around. Villa Sapphire has outstanding ocean views and where you have this, you have a hill to climb. The villa is positioned in an outstandingly beautiful location, and is a 250 mtr length of steep hill from the entrance at Sitara Retreat. We strongly recommend the use of a four wheel drive, or if you are a very confident rider, a moped, which we can arrange for you, and have waiting at the villa on your arrival. It is a condition of Sitara Retreat that if you hire a car it will need to be a four wheel drive.
