A romantic and exotic setting, ideally suited for couples. It is also very popular for honeymoons. This lovely villa is one of three villas, set on a magnificent parcel of land, covered in granite boulders and swaying coconut trees. Included within the rental price of this villa is an automatic 4 x 4 car. Villa Sapphire is situated on the 22 acre area of ocean view hillside land known as Sitara Retreat, which provides 24 hour security. The villa boasts an infinity edged private salt water pool and tropical-style open plan Living area with Jacuzzi. Sitara is an exclusive private residency, surrounded by nature, with amazing rock formation and outstanding natural beauty. The villa is in the unspoiled south of the island which largely remains unaffected by over-development that unfortunately blights the north. THE VILLA From the private car parking area, the impressive entrance is positioned between two ancient boulders inviting you into the unique open tropical-style Living area that sits in complete harmony with nature. Positioned in the centre of the living room is a Jacuzzi where you can relax and enjoy the magnificent views of the shimmering turquoise ocean or just relax and wile away your time, whilst watching a movie under the stars on the projector screen. Set against a magnificent granite rock, is a tropical open-style kitchen, where you can cook freshly caught fish or meat from the local market or superstores and enjoy a romantic dinner with the backdrop of the twinkling lights of the fishing boats out at sea. The dining area provides stunning views over to the Infinity pool and beautiful ocean. Leading from the living area, there is a small lotus pond containing colourful tropical fish, through to the infinity edged private salt water swimming pool complete with sun deck. Also within this area is an outsdecrain shower. The upper floor consists of an elegant and spacious Bedroom with beautiful tropical hardwood high vaulted ceiling, complete with an en-suite bath tub, walk in shower, double vanity unit and WC. This has been created with the classic look of Terrazzo. The bedroom has a king size bed, fitted wardrobes, dressing table, air conditioning, ceiling fan and leads out to its balcony with fabulous far-reaching views of the lush green tropical setting and turquoise ocean. Satellite TV and DVD movies can be enjoyed on the large projector screen set against one of the granite boulders within the tropical living area. Satellite tv has the top package, including showing football from the champions league. Smoking is only allowed outside the villa. A new utility room, with washing machine, has been created for guests at the Villa. Villa Sapphire is installed with free fibre optic wifi. Please note no additional guests other than those who have booked to stay at the villa are permitted to stay overnight. The best way to get around the island is the use of the complimentary 4 x 4 automatic car (or 2 mopeds if you are very confident drivers). All our cars are insured, with the guest being responsible, and limited, for the first 15,000 Baht of any damage. There is no insurance on mopeds where the guest pays for any damage incurred. It is the guests' responsibility to ensure that they also have their own comprehensive Travel & Health Insurance, and appropriate driving documentation for Thailand. We have been awarded the 2019, 2018 and 2017 Tripadvisor Certificate of Excellence for Villa Sapphire and also for each of our 7 additional villas on Koh Samui. More

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 use of a car or moped is the easiest way to get around. The Villa is located in the quieter part of Koh Samui, unlike the busy north of the island. 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 therefore strongly recommend the use of the complimentary four wheel drive; or if you are both very confident riders, two mopeds, which we can provide for you in your rental price, and have waiting at the villa on your arrival. It is a condition of Sitara Retreat that if you use a car it will need to be a four wheel. There is secure parking at the villa.
