Imagine this: Wake to the sound of waves gently breaking on the shore.
Yawn, stretch, leap out of bed, fling wide the vast glass doors of your room, and step onto the soft white sand of Lipa Noi Beach.
It’s the start of another glorious day at Ban Suriya.
Suriya means ‘sunshine’ and Ban Suriya has it by the barrel-load.
All rooms open up to the light and the warm breeze, and it feels as though the tall palm trees in the garden are part of the house.
Ban Suriya’s two swimming pools glitter invitingly, competing with the sea.
Yes, this delightful Samui villa with its cool white décor punctuated with brilliant splashes of colour is impressive.
But much more than that, the scale of its rooms, and its comprehensive facilities, are all about comfort and familiarity. Truly a place to feel at home.
Six spacious ensuite bedrooms capable of sleeping up 15 people surround the huge central deck, with a well-stocked library, large dining room, computer room, video and games room, and gym in the main building next to the open-air kitchen.
Seven staff – villa manager, chef, housemaids, gardeners and security guard – ensure every request, every need, is met calmly and speedily, and always with a broad smile.
Families love this place. Nanny service can be provided and for more grown-up kids there are two canoes and a stand-up paddleboard (what else are beaches for?)
There’s also a pool table, a giant chess set, table tennis and a big swing on the beach.
This Samui villa is also popular for weddings – about 20 are celebrated here every year.
Ban Suriya can manage parties of up to 120 people seated for the wedding breakfast.
Whether you’re starting a life together or enjoying family and friends, Ban Suriya is the place to celebrate.
