Bophut, Koh Samui, Thailand

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.

Located high in the lush green hills above Samui’s popular resort of Bophut, Suralai is just 6km from Samui’s international airport and 7km from gorgeous sandy beaches at the island’s main tourist centre, Chaweng.
Thanks to its elevation, the villa enjoys spectacular views from the north-east coastline and the Gulf of Siam, to offshore islands such as Koh Phangan, popularly known as ‘Full Moon Island’, as well as of the island’s striking mountainous interior with its coconut palm clad slopes and dramatic waterfalls.
Circumnavigating Koh Samui by car takes just over an hour, so nothing is very far away.
The key jumping off point for boat trips and excursions to discover offshore islands is a mere 6km away at Big Buddha.
