Looking for beautiful destinations in Thailand means looking for its hidden gems and definitely going on the discovery of some of the most beautiful Islands on earth, as in this case Kho Samui!
Even though It may not a well-known destination and really well equipped to back up the truism demand providing overall good service, the right facilities which suit any kind of traveler and budget of course.
This is Thailand’s second largest island, lies in the Gulf of Thailand off the east coast of the Kra Isthmus.
It’s known for its palm-fringed beaches, coconut groves and dense, mountainous rainforest, plus luxury resorts and posh spas.
I had the pleasure to stay in one of the most beautiful luxury villas on the island, in the Sky Dream Villa...and I must tell that the name is not a coincidence!
With an unobstructed 180-degree ocean views, Sky Dream Villa is a fully-furnished 6-bedroom villa with a private 25 m long infinity pool.
All the bedrooms are very spacious and all face towards the wonderful view, which can be seen 24/7 thanks to the magnificent gigantic glassed window functioning as wall and making the facility result very enlightened all the time.
The villa is positioned on the hills above the serene Chaweng Noi Bay, this villa is a 10-minute drive from the beach and is naturally cooled by the air stream coming up from the ocean.
There’s a 24/7 Wi-Fi connection functioning all day long without having any big problem at all.
The position of the facility is within a 6 km drive of the main Chaweng Beach area, a very popular area for its shopping centres, dining and nightlife options which can be reached by taxi or simply by asking the staff to take care of the organisation of the transportation issue.
If you’re reaching the place by flight, the Samui Airport is approximately a 20-minute drive away and airport transfers can be arranged in advance by asking support to the villa management or staff and the same thing in case you’re getting on the island by ferry.
The villa as I was saying earlier, is designed with an open-space concept, floor-to-ceiling windows, split level living areas, and large sundecks, all providing sea views and don’t worry about the hot temperatures because there’s air-conditioned system everywhere to making sure to keep you fresh all along.
In the facility is available a modern kitchen which is used by the staff and on occasions can also be used by the guests if required, a high-end sound system where I was playing my I-pod al day long (especially from the pool) and flat-screen satellite TVs with international premium channels available in all the rooms.
Bathrooms come with a beautiful elegant shower or you could just go for the large concrete bathtub.
The bathtub, is definitely a wonder because it’s not only made with a minimal and elegant concept but because it entirely faces the beautiful view over Samui, allowing you to see the beach area not very distant from the villa itself.
A fitness and fun area is located on the lower level, including a billiards table and table tennis;
This was definitely one of my favourite places in the villa, where I could spend some quality time with my partner while having fun and enjoying our time on holiday!
You can just relax in one of the many hammocks or if you’re feeling competitive taking the chance with your buddy playing dards game, billiard and many more.
One of the best ways to relax even more is also to have a quick session in the gym, I like releasing tension through a bit of workout..makes me feel good and healthy, plus afterwards I know that but by taking a shower, I’ve sealed the workout of the day and can finally go relax a little bit in the wonderful infinity pool where I’ve spent the majority of my time.
My favourite moment of the day in the infinity pool is definitively at sunset time, when the sky changes and the colours become so powerful that looks like somebody must have painted it!
Anyway the staff of the villa is super attentive and makes sure everything from personal groceries, laundry, massages, cooking and advice for things to do on Samui Island are available in house.
I couldn’t ask for a better place to spend my time on Koh Samui, the Sky Dream Villa will definitively have a special place in my memories!!
