For a truly spectacular Koh Samui experience, far from the madding beach crowds, head for the cool hills above the popular resort of Bophut to your own private villa retreat at Suralai.
Set in its own peaceful, landscaped grounds, on the north-east coast, 15 minutes from the airport, this impressive 6-bedroom, stand-alone villa will have you captivated from the moment you arrive.
As you’re escorted through the main living pavilion onto the terrace, the view of a 25-metre infinity pool and the panorama of Bophut Bay and the islands beyond will literally take your breath away.
This sense of celebrity lifestyle, just as you imagine it, doesn’t stop here! Your bedroom with its own private terrace offers the same stunning vistas.
The highlight of this magnificent villa is the living and dining pavilion, sitting majestically above it all – a striking architectural statement with its soaring cathedral ceiling and pitched roof.
This is the social hub of the villa, where breakfast and dinners are served against a landscape of lush green mountains, and where the evening begins with cocktails and conversation overlooking the twilight views.
By day, a Thai-style sala beside the pool is the place for casual lunches, lounging, reading a book or enjoying a sublime massage in the shade on wide comfortable cushions.
Catering for every carefree whim, Suralai’s domestic team of four, including your villa manager and resident chef, are at hand to ensure you experience the best that this delightful island has to offer, from shopping and dining out to excursions, boat trips, golf and sightseeing.
Suralai is as perfect for family holidays as it is for groups of friends celebrating a special event, or hosting a once-in-a-lifetime occasion, such as a wedding.
Whatever your reasons, this is a show-stopping retreat that never fails to enchant those who have the good fortune to experience it.
