Our family (3 kids 3, 5 and 7) stayed at this beautiful Villa this October while visiting Samui and we had a really great time. The place is brand new and furnished with quality materials, the kitchen is well equipped and the pool is amazing. My kids would spend the all day in there.
Adding to all the good things about the villa, we especially liked the fact that the pool was “secured” with a rail. Beside the pool, my kids also loved their big bunk beds and all the toys that they found in the children’s’ room. Worth mentioning that there s also a baby cot and plastic dishware great for kids around the pool J So nice when you are away from home to have a place that just feels like home.
Daily cleaning was also provided (thank you Kevin for making those nice towel origami…my kids would just freak out when coming back from the beach)
Now on parents’ side, we enjoyed the very relaxing atmosphere, the view and the very private setting (only 4 other villa around you), it makes you feel very fortunate. My husband particularly appreciated the running appliance in the fitness room. There are not much options of running on the island otherwise. And the wifi connection was fast and allowed us to watch movies on the apple TV (provided), my husband was listening to streaming music on Mixcloud and the Skype calls were flawless.
About the location, the villa is well situated only a few minutes from all the main attractions of the island, 2min drive up-hill from the main road, it ‘s a close 3 min drive to beautiful Chaweng Noi Beach, which is a nice place for the family (shallow water, no rocks just soft sand and not so busy as Chaweng, parking at Fair House Hotel or Bistro restaurant), the big Tesco supermarket and the Bangkok Samui hospital. It s also only a 10 minutes drive to the airport and the main shopping area with Central Festival Samui (brand new open-air shopping mall and restaurants). So we could easily go out for dinner with my husband while the kids stayed with a babysitter.
I would totally recommend the place and we will be back for sure!!
We were a family of 7 persons (4 adults + 2 children and a baby) and we spent an absolutely fantastic holiday week in this superb villa in September.
The large and comfortable villa with its very beautiful terrace, pool, view exceeded all our expectations and it made our holiday to a fantastic experience. The villa provided luxurious space for us all with every bedroom having its own bathroom, a comfortable and relaxing living room, a great dining area and a kitchen equipped with all you need. Our favorite place was the terrace where we enjoyed our breakfast every morning and a dinner most of the evenings.
We would start the day with a few laps in the pool, enjoy our morning tea while contemplating the view (you just can t get enough) and then head for one of the many nice beaches close to the villa (Silver, Chaweng- Noi, Mae Nam and Tong Son bay were our favorite). There are many restaurants on the beach to have a nice lunch and fruit shake. Mid-afternoon (before mosquitos time) we would drive back to the villa, stop for some groceries in one of the malls (Tesco Lotus and Big C are just a few minutes away) and enjoy the rest of the day on the sundeck. There is a very efficient Air-con in the living area but we particularly appreciated the nice breeze coming down the hill and the feeling of being so close to the jungle, you can almost reach out for a coconut (well that was the lingering idea of one of my grand-child).
The house was cleaned daily so we needn’t to worry about that and David was really helpful with tips on the Island.
The villa also has a gym that we really appreciated, as there’s no real option to run on the street or beach. The gym room is facing the sea, which really makes you want to go there unlike many fitness rooms we have seen in hotels. My wife also enjoyed the Pilates classes that are available on the TV and the kids played a lot with the Wii.
We would definitely recommend the villa to a family who wants to spend time together in the comfort of a home with the service of a hotel.
We have made one of our most memorable holiday experience in this newly build Villa Alexandra where we spent 2 relaxing weeks with our daughters. This modern and contemporary villa is situated on a hill surrounded by palm trees and not far away from the most beautiful beaches of Kho Samui : Silver Beach, Coral Cove Beach.. at half way between Chaweng and Lamai. The rent did include outstanding services, airport pick-up, cleaning, etc. and the villa was very well equipped with modern furniture, swimming pool, offering Fitness facilities with impressive seaview from everywhere. We very much appreciated the calm and privacy of this place and we will certainly come back very soon.
