My wife and I stayed in the villa for 10 days and loved every moment there.

The setting is so beautiful upon a mountain, which gives the most beautiful views over the sea and island in front of Samui. The pool and jacuzzi were lovely and the bed- and bathroom really comfortable. The owner Dave was really great, such a lovely person. He was waiting at the airport to pick us up and helped us in arranging a rental car. Dave gave us some great tips on places to eat (we loved the food, thanks Dave!!!) and recommended us a great diving school. He was really helpful if we had any questions or requests. After 10 days we really did not feel like going away and could have easily stayed for 10 more days!

We also had the chance to check out the 2 bigger villa's (Emerald & Crystal) and they looked as great as our villa. So if you are travelling with a bigger group, we would definatly recommend these villa's as well.

Thank you Dave for the great time! We really hope...

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 island's main attractions are only a short drive away, which include Lamai beach, Butterfly Garden, Waterfalls, Aquarium, Elephant trekking, Grandmother, Grandfather Rocks, horse riding, water sports, Thai cookery classes, Thai boxing amongst others. The island measures some 25 km at its widest point.

The villa is within 15 minutes walking distance of Laem Set beach (short and steep in a couple of places), where you will find several fine restaurants serving both delicious Thai and Western food and a couple of small, quiet bars. this is a small, charming area where there are also well-reputed massage shops, Yoga, taxi services and a local travel a...
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: Koh Samui: 18.0 km
Ferry: Nathon Pier: 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.
