luxury properties that you must see in the beautiful South
Luxury properties in the South
A quiet life with panache makes these two very different luxury properties in Southern Koh Samui most appealing. Each has a special Character, and offers different aspects. One has extraordinary dreamy sea views across to distant islands. The other is in its own walled oasis nearly at the end of the island. Both are within a few minutes to quiet beaches, and lazy local fish restaurants.
The first is closer to the Tiger Zoo and Butterfly gardens. Long stretches of sandy beach where the water goes out to the coral line are found here. The area is more authentic, and the roads quieter. Through Lamai and out passed Hua Thanon. Taking a trip further down the coast you will come to the second villa, which is more on the tip of the island. Here have their share of luxury hotels, the most recent totable is the Conrad Hotel.
Outstanding Sea Views at Laem Set, Ko Samui
This 3-bedroom property is on a private road estate on the hillside. Generally you do need a 4 wheel drive car but we managed as this villa is only just up the hill before the roads get steep. It is definitely a development consisting of rather mature properties. Each is tucked into its own hillside retreat. There are some celebrity owners here, one related to a well know rock band of the 70’s and 80’s.
The villa comprised of three separate buildings, one housing living and entertainment space. The other two are bedrooms and one with an office room. This is really a treetops or in-the-trees style of villa, which has been designed to fit into the granite rocks on which it sits. Cedar wood roofs and sheltered balconies and with extended covered decks. The villa has been modified a little during its time, which now extends more than 10 years. The living room looks down on the pool deck and swimming pool, with covered terraces running around the property. Mostly people spend time on the deck and covered living area in the morning. Evening time you can retreat upstairs to the living area, and either catch up on tv or reading.
Quiet, secluded and private are three appropriate words to describe this villa. Wonderful sea views with jungle tree surrounds. Island stretch before us, sunrises that touch the ocean and bring light across the islands. Take leisurely breakfasts and lunchtime snacks in your own paradise home. On the day we visited there was a storm, and even during this time the views and tropical rains made it amazing. On clear blue sky days this villa is a sight to behold. This is certainly one of Koh Samui’s luxury properties.

More about Thong Krut
Nestled into the southern tip of Koh Samui is the sleepy fishing village of Thong Krut. It is only a 45-minute drive from Koh Samui International airport, and on one of the most underdeveloped beaches on the island. The national marine park can be seen from Thong Krut. This is a true island archipelago that makes up Moo Koh Ang Thong.
Thong Krut is definitely a place for people who wish to destress and relax. Local Thai villagers and fishermen mingle with those who wish to find an escape-from-it-all paradise destination. Thong Krut is also the perfect base for a home whilst close to very holistic and tranquil activities. From yoga and meditation, to island-hopping, to monkey-operated coconut farms, to temples, to simple stargazing on the beach at nighttime, to taking a mountain bike up jungle tracks, their are plenty of activities to keep you interested. For those not so energetic, you can simply kick off your shoes and enjoy a quiet coffee by the beach at one of the many amazing restaurants all close by car.
Thong Krut has some of the best selection of restaurants on the island, all run by either locals or those who have also fallen in love with the areas charm, and most within a 2 minute walk or 5 minutes by car, you will be spoiled for choice when it comes to food – our favourites are ‘Hemingway’s on the Beach’, ‘The Melting Pot’, ‘Hideaway’, ‘NunBao’, and some of the street food is to die for, oh and for an amazing coffee, ‘Boy’s Coffee’ is right next door.
