The Beach Villas Of Koh Samui

The past decade has seen an increase in the number of travellers to Koh Samui. Koh Samui is an island set in the sparkling waters of the Gulf of Thailand. From Bangkok, it’s a one hour ride in a plane. Travellers can allow reaching the island through boat from Surat Thani Province. There are two other islands in this region but Koh Samui is the island that attracts more travellers who are looking for wonderful classy experience, i found a great villa accommodation here. Koh Samui’s airport also has daily flights back t Bangkok, Singapore and Hong Kong making it a reachable destination.

The Perfect Location

People who have knowledge of the island’s geography can opt to find their own villas and houses to enjoy the scenery better – I found great villa accommodation here. As Thailand’s second largest island, Koh Samui’s eastern side is the most preferred one for travellers. The eastern side has a long white-sand beach and is a great place to find the best dining venues and luxury spas.

The north of the island is attractive fishing villages. There are few private villas in this area in addition to the restaurants, cafes, spas and shops. But these villas are specifically for those who want to be away from the crowd.

Wonderful Facilities

Nothing can match the facilities offered by the villas in Koh Samui. Even the classiest resorts cannot match the facilities given by the private luxurious villas. The facilities are more sophisticated. In fact, many villas boast of their own indoor and outdoor swimming pools, playroom for children, fully-equipped gyms, outdoor dining areas, rooms for entertainment with private cinema screens and gaming stations and high-speed internet connection throughout the villa property.

There is a set of dedicated staff for each of these luxurious villas which include people for cleaning, driving, a chef and concierge services. There is nothing more relaxed than having facilities like these. It is a home away from our home!

What I found on my Trip to the East

Two years ago, I headed out on my first trip to the far east. Being from america I didn’t know what to expect, only that it would be a complete alien world to me. The only familiarity I found were the tourists from the entire western world. It seemed like all the young people from all over the developed world had come to stare and photograph the locals. Something that I abhorred. I came here not to watch, but to get involved, so I started my own trail off the beaten track.

After 3 days of trekking with a group of vietnamese monks and a guide, we arrived at an ancient buddhist temple. Surrounded entirely by dense forest on all sides and hidden well from anybody who doesn’t know it’s exact location. The monkeys howled during the morning and at night, I could swear there were more crickets rubbing their tiny legs together just outside of the temple than there were drops of water in the ocean.

Spending nearly a week there, with no running water, electricity or internet, I felt truly at one with myself and the world. But, even though this place was magical, I knew there were so much more on my list that I needed to see and do if my soul was to be full before I went home.

So off we set again, me and my little crew that I had formed. We all agreed that we wanted somewhere with a little more luxury and agreed that somewhere by the sea would be the best for us. We ended up stumbling across Na Trang, a beach to the south of vietnam. To our surprise I found a great villa accommodation here, big enough for all 6 of us to each have our own room and still see the beach, it was a dream.

Safe to say, there was so much yoga, meditation and healthy eating going in those four walls. Especially after basically becoming a monk for a week
