Are you planning your Koh Samui holiday? There are many advantages of staying in a villa compared to staying in traditional hotel rooms. Firstly, villas offer much more privacy making it perfect for families or groups of friends. Next, villas in Koh Samui usually come with their own private pool, which is a great way to cool down during the hot Thai summers. Villas also often come with fully-equipped modern kitchens and dining areas, which allow you to cook your own meals… some even have private butlers to assist you with everything you may need during your stay! These sound like the ingredients for a perfect holiday in Thailand and we’ve curated a list of the best villas in Koh Samui to take the guesswork out for you.
