Waimarie - Private beach loungers

The Locale

The most impressive of half a dozen high-end absolute beachfront villas on the southern stretch of Koh Samui’s most beautiful yet quietest beach, Lipa Noi, this Samui villa looks west across the Gulf of Siam. It is six minutes from the nearest town, Nathon (good for some easy basic shopping) and 50 minutes from Chaweng, the island’s main nexus for shopping, dining and nightlife. The airport is 50 minutes’ drive, while the car ferry jetty is 6 minutes away.

Things to Do

Koh Samui is not a big island – it’s just under 230 square kilometres, and much of that is still pristine forest-covered hillside – but it offers a wealth of fun and interesting things to do. Let your villa manager know what sort of activities you’re interested in and he or she will help guide your choices and can also arrange transport to take you there.

In the meantime, to whet your appetite, here are some suggestions.

Dusit Deva Cultural Centre is a slightly eccentric garden filled with creatures from Buddhist and Hindu myths. Kids will love it.
Koh Samui has two golf courses; Santiburi (18 holes and really distracting ocean views), and Bophut Hills (nine holes).
Treat the family to Sunday Brunch by the pool at the internationally famed Nikki Beach Club, just a few minutes away along the beach.
Visit nearby Nathon Walking Street Night Market on Thursdays or the bigger Fisherman’s Village Night Market in Bophut on Fridays.
Go island hopping! The Ang Thong National Marine Park encompasses a cluster of islands – the ones you can see from Tawantok Beach Villas. The heavily jungled islands are carefully controlled to keep them in pristine natural condition. A trip to them is a must.
There’s a kite surfing school on the beach at Nathon where you can rent a rig or learn how to do it.
Regular Thai boxing tournaments are staged at the largest stadium on the island, the Petch Buncha near Chaweng. These are not tourist demo fights; they are the real thing.
Samui has a number of spectacular waterfalls. We would recommend starting with the Namuang Falls. Take your bathing costume; there’s a very inviting pool at the base of the falls.
Have an adventure atop Khao Pom mountain on ATVs or the zipline, or just gaze out at the scenery below from the viewpoint.

    The villa is a perfect destination for our family holiday. There is something for everyone here from the private beach, swimming pool, tennis court to the incredible service by the staff here. Professional and attentive, we feel we got all amenities at our finger tips. The chef, oh the chef food was fantastic, top quality gourmet standard! I would recommend this villa to our friends and hope to be here again sometime.

    The review is from a 7 years old kid: I have a amazing vacation here, we feed elephants (elephants smells not stinky), the restaurant owner has 5 dogs, they are fat and cute, I love them. Grandpa played the swing with me under the tree, I was flying and so happy. Dad and me swimming in the villa pool. After that we took a boat to go fishing, the captain caught lots of fishes, hope we can be good like him next time. We have a nice time here. I will study harder and get back to here again. Thanks all. LI ZI

    We have spent a wonderful and relaxing week. All of this was possible because Joy and her team did their best in order for us to have an amazing holiday. Here we found a great chef who cooked everything we asked for. We wish we will come back here for a longer period of time.

    Thank you so much to Joy and the team at Waimarie for a wonderful, relaxing, delicious 3 weeks. Joy's hospitality and creativity (with lots of special surprises) contributed to making our stay truly memorable. The food was exquisite, fresh, tasty and healthy, a great chef. Loads of tennis with James kept us in shape. We had a great time, Thanks
