In recent years, more and more holidaymakers have started choosing to rent a private villa when visiting Thailand and this has had a significant impact on the overall tourism industry.
To cater to the growing demand, some hotels have even started offering stand alone villas within their grounds, giving guests the opportunity to enjoy common facilities such as pools and restaurants, while at the same time enjoying the privacy of their own holiday home. Renting a villa may also be more economically viable for larger groups travelling together because the price is often justified by the larger number of rooms.
Koh Samui has an extensive range of villas, from modest one or two bedroom bungalows to expansive eight-bedroom mansions complete with staff and high tech entertainment features. It is not uncommon for the largest villas to have a private gym or spa, wine cellar, tennis court and an entertainment room with its own cinema screen. Some also have a games room with pool, table tennis or table football. These villas offer the ultimate personalised holiday experience, providing the utmost in terms of privacy, facilities and services.
Design-wise, villas vary greatly due to the range of different investors that have built homes on the island. All-villa developments follow some building and design codes that dictate overall architecture and sometimes even interior design, but private investors who build their own dream villa more often than not have very specific requirements in terms of layout, design, facilities and even garden and landscaping. Some villas are built using traditional Thai building practices in mind, evident in the pointed roofs and the use of indigenous materials, while others are more modern in design with clean lines and minimalistic furnishings.
If staying at home is not your idea of a fun holiday; Koh Samui has plenty of options waiting just outside your door. Nature lovers can head inland to the island's interior where viewpoints offer amazing vistas over the Gulf of Thailand, or take a boat trip to nearby islands to enjoy excellent snorkelling. For those visitors interested in local culture, the island also boasts many temples and visitors can follow local customs and give alms to the monks. The opportunities for unique experiences are endless, which is why people keep coming back to Koh Samui year after year.
