Although I have been to Thailand many times, this was our first time staying in a villa, I def will not be going back to hotels after staying in a villa.
This particular villa is located up on the hills, excellent spot with breath taking views, but more importantly, the privacy was brilliant, complete peace and tranquillity compared to the noise at the bottom in comparison.
The villa itself is very modern and has been very thoughtfully designed by its owners. Very spacious, a number of bedrooms that caters for both families and non-families. The pool outside is brilliant, very clean and well looked after. We spent most of our time outside, even when we had meals we used the dining table outside overlooking Samui with an excellent views of the sunset.
The villa also provides you with your own cook and driver….I think they are a married couple but extremely nice and always helpful. The lady was an excellent cook, you just told her what you wished to eat, and gave her money for the ingredients. As expected, her Thai food was very tasty.
The husband who as well as a driver that would take you anywhere, anytime and wait for you no matter what time it was or how long he had to wait, also operated the BBQ grill outside on the deck. His barbequed fish was delicious.
Overall, we will now be staying at a villa whenever we go Thailand. This villa might be hard to top, so just as this villa was highly recommended to us by our friends, we would recommend this villa to others.
You can’t decide between an ocean view or Mountain View? Not a problem at Villa Velks since you have both! You have a breath taken view of the mountains down the valley to the Harbor and outlaying islands. The Villa is grand in scope with plenty of room for a family and friends to enjoy each other’s company but still have plenty of chill out space in your room to watch a DVD. The staff is so lovely and are amazing cooks. There are many great restaurants in Kos Sumui but the quality of the food being prepared by the staff was some of the best Thai & Seafood that I’ve ever had. I hope that my family and I get a chance to vacation back at Villa Velks soon.
I went over Christmas and loved it. Koh samui is amazing and there is so much to do with the kids. The villa (brand new it seems) has all the mod cons and then some. The maid cooks up an amazing lunch or dinner and you really dont need to eat out. Very kid friendly (I have 3 young children) we visited Le Beach Bar most days which is 2 mins down the road. Lots of water sports etc. The villa provides you with a car and driver so it couldn't be easier. The Four Seasons is also on your doorstep if you want to indulge.
Best location and best villa I have ever experienced in Asia.
