We visited Koh Samui in December 2016 and booked this place after lot of research and this boutique resort completely lived up to our expectation. Though the resort is located relatively out of main town but quality of service and amazing villa completely overshadowed whatever small drawbacks it may have in terms of location and small beach. We booked sea...

Absolutely perfect location! Without tourists, the resort is small, so you have a feeling of complete privacy. Bald crowded beach! Calm down. I feel like in paradise! Many thanks staff for their care. Clean everywhere. Villas older, but have their own charm and grace! Beautiful pool! Who is looking for peace of mind, this is the right place! Far from...

Where to start :) We were recommended Viva Vacation Resort by our wedding planner and after reading reviews on here we couldn't wait to arrive as it sounded just what we wanted and it certainly didn't disappoint. Upon our arrival we were greeted with a lovely welcome drink and cold towels to refresh and then shown to our Sea View...

I really wish I could give 5 stars to the resort. The service is excellent and warm, and the staff is truly awesome. We had a seaview villa and despite its old age, it is fresh and looks recently refurbished. The bathroom was enormous. The view from the villa towards the sea was amazing. But I can't give full marks...

This is an authentic beautiful property by the sea ! The garden is beautiful and the staff always smiling ! We had a perfect week far from the crazy touristic crowd of Koh Samui. Special thanks to Kris the manager, he made our stay perfect !

We were recommended to stay at this resort, by friends that visited two years earlier. We were surprised by its welcoming staff, lovely location right at the beach and by the effort made by keeping the cleaning, garden and food at as high standard as it was. We travelled with a 8 month old little boy, who they all made...

Lovely family run resort. Friendly chatty staff. Delicious food at an affordable price for a resort. Beautiful location. Quiet secluded beach. Spacious clean rooms. It's far from the infamous chaweng beach but I visited and it's been destroyed by tourism anyway. On Friday Saturday and Sunday you can have dinner on the beach watching the sunset. They even play films...

“if you would like to be on your own, w/o people passing by your villa - take 108 :) that is where i stayed. but if you take any villa, it is not a busy resort - so, i assume, that you will be happy with any villa in the resort.”
