My husband and I stayed at Viva Vacation Resort for 3 nights over the recent New Year's holidays. We cannot say enough good things about this beautiful, little resort and its owner Kris and his family. From the very moment you arrive you feel like you are home. The staff is so friendly, it is unbelievable! The resort has only 11 spacious, nicely decorated villas where you have plenty of room to lounge also during a rainy day. The grounds are finely manicured, the pool is huge and the restaurant is 5 stars.
The resort is located on a quiet beach on the west coast of Koh Samui, just 5 km south of Nathon pier. If you want to discover the island, you will need your own wheels. We rented a scooter in Nathon upon our arrival but you can also rent one from Kris at the same price we paid in town.
We attended the New Year's eve party and, although there were 11 guests, it was a delightful night. We were greeted with a flower lei and a young coconut drink; they had organized a Thai dance show, a superb buffet with amazing food, gifts draw, flooding lanterns and fireworks at midnight!
We are definitely going back if we travel to Thailand in the future.
