“fabulous stay - this is an amazing villa and location”
Reviewed 19 November 2013 for a stay in June 2012

Tucked away high in the hills overlooking the western coastline of Koh Samui, this villa was nothing short of spectacular. New, clean, well appointed and with the never-ending help and hospitality of the on-site property manager couple, nothing was ever a problem. Having met our friends at the airport, we spent an incredible week sunning and swimming by the pool, and sightseeing with our ever-enthusiastic driver on hand at all times - sheer luxury! We thought the location was superb - away from the hustle and bustle of tourists, shops, noise and traffic - total relaxation with everything you could want at the villa yet a short drive to the other things we wanted to do and places we wanted to see. This place is a definite keeper and we would stay there again without hesitation. Honest!

“Highly Recommended”
Reviewed 9 November 2013 for a stay in February 2013

We had a very relaxing, nice and pleasant time. The staff were extremely helpful, the villa itself is peaceful and secluded. Perfect for large families and groups of friends. Would definitely go back to Samui and Villa Velks.

“cosy, charming and relaxing”

person found this review helpful

we didn't have any expectation when we booked the villa, as it's set on top of the mountain, my husband aims is far away from noisy, busy shopping area - that's what he told me. the villa is comfortable and very cosy, we felt like we could just kick our shoes off and relax despite the noise of our children.

Villa Velks is spacious, comfortable, clean and relaxing, the pool was perfect for both children and adults, we did spent endless hours in the pool and pool area; the staffs are efficient, wonderful and helpful, there are a few children things available, ie: playpen, stroller, books, movies and toys to keep the little one busy. the staffs cooked a couple of traditional Thai meals for us, it was heavenly!! We didn't realised the taxi in Samui was a bit expensive, so having the SUV taking us around the island sure saves us some pennies.

we will definitely return with another family as the place is large enough to accommodate us all. thank you Villa Velks, we had the best time ever!!

“VILLA VELKS KOH SAMUI”
Reviewed 8 November 2013 for a stay in December 2012

Villa Velks is tucked away in the mountains with Ocean views. Its stunning - with space for all and bathrooms. TV's and DVD's galore so if you need a bit of 'time out' from your fellow guests you can relax in style . High specs and lovely Thai helpers. They cooked us western food for breakfast (bacon sarnies and coffee chasers) and for lunch we were able to request a wish list of Thai gastronomy which was prepared for us from scratch. All the usual names Pad Thai , Som Tum , Gaeng Keow Wan Gai. There is a BBQ on the huge outdoor terrace too. So if you go into town you can get some fresh seafood and grill it up . This is a really wonderful place to take a group of friends or the family (pool has a kids shallow side too) . The place has a car for use also which the Thai wonder team drive you about in. So plenty of dinner or island exploring options are made easy .
The owner is Big Duncs and he is a blast ! I love Thailand but especially love the time I had with the crew at this villa .

“Most relaxed I've ever been”
Reviewed 7 November 2013 for a stay in September 2013

"Villa Velks" was spectacular !!! The views of the ocean and mountains are to die for, there's no need to leave the house when you could just lie by the pool and stare out at the phenomenal land and seascape. So much privacy yet so close to everything, restaurants, beaches, shopping....
The staff at the villa were so friendly and accommodating. My bedroom was so comfortable I wanted to take the bed home with me lol :) After staying at Villa Velks I've been spoiled for life !
