Ban Laem Noi, Koh Samui, Thailand
Let the warm sea and five-star service wash—and pamper—your cares away at Villa Neung. Part of the exclusive gated Mandalay Beach Villas on the gorgeous coast of Koh Samui, this three-bedroom vacation rental offers true luxury in its melding of a beautiful beachfront setting, attentive staff and thoughtful modern design.
Your stay at Villa Neung begins with a complimentary airport transfer, and includes continental breakfast and the services of a chef, housekeeper and property manager. Spend your holiday enjoying the sea breeze from a lounge chair by the infinity pool, or step down to the beach to sunbathe or paddle along the shore in one of the villa’s kayaks. In the evenings, try out local seafood on the barbecue and make the most of the balmy weather with dinner at the al-fresco table.
The villa’s layout separates the property into two halves: one with the open-air great room, the other with the more private bedrooms. In the great room, you can opt to let the warm air waft in over the relaxed yet refined wicker sectional and chic Louis Ghost-style dining chairs, or let the blinds down for shade. At the far end of the room, the fully equipped kitchen features an inviting breakfast bar and sleek, state-of-the-art appliances.
Each of the three bedrooms at Villa Neung has a king bed and en-suite bathroom, and opens to the terrace. Details like built-in cupboards and shelves, low-slung beds with crisp white bedding and wicker accent chairs give the bedrooms serene, comfortable appeal.
Whether you’ve come to Koh Samui for a family beach vacation or a tropical honeymoon, you’ll find something near Villa Neung to please. The property is located right on the sands of Ban Laem Noi, and there are five other beaches to explore within an 11-mile drive, from Nathon with its pier and night market to trendy Bophut. Play a round of golf at Santiburi Samui Country Club, visit the charming oceanfront Fisherman’s Village Plaza, stand in awe at Big Buddha Temple or meet local fauna at Na Muang Safari Park. When it’s time to leave, plan on an 11.5-mile drive from the villa to Samui International Airport.
