  1. Blue-sky thinking. What a stunning collection of villas! These are the sort of places you want to hire to celebrate a very significant anniversary of birthday with family and friends. When are the best times of year to visit Thailand?

  2. There are some great villas here. But they are pretty large and will create a lot of domestic work. They look too good to
    leave to eat out. But it’s gonna be a lot of work, cooking and cleaning and all that stuff, and we’re supposed to be on holiday. Do these places come with cooks and cleaners?

    1. Hi Pete. All of the above villas are fully-staffed with in-villa chef, manager, housekeeping, and a dedicated concierge too.

  3. Come on Darrel you are sitting on the fence. Which of these ten beauties is your Number One? Or do you have favourites for different holidays? A chillin’ fave? A partyin’ fave?

    1. Hi Sally. I have stayed in 8 of the villas listed while only personally inspected the other 2. I do love all of them. Picking just one would be extremely difficult. I believe it all depends on your design preference, location, facilities they offer, and the number of bedrooms you require.

  4. I’ve been to Koh Samui but only ever stayed at resort hotels. Now thinking of trying a private villa for a change. Especially since I’ll be visiting again with a few more people than last time. Planning a trip later this year to escape the cold. I might take a look at that Villa Sangkachai.

  5. These villas are absolutely gorgeous. They all look like amazing places to stay but I think I would want to check out Ocean’s 11 first. What are the spa facilities like?

  6. These villas are just taking things to another level. We’re talking regal levels of luxury here, these are truly palaces for the ultimate holiday. We’ve had a number of villas in both Europe and Florida but there’s no way that they compare with these places.

    The thoughtfulness of design, the specification and the quality of the finish are all phenomenal. It’s a bit over the top but we’re looking to have a college reunion and we’ve all agreed to push the boat out and go somewhere very special. One of these places could be a real contender.
