OK, first I have to say that we booked this place by mistake – no fault of the hotel I would hasten to add, just my not reading the description correctly. I was therefore most disappointed when I arrived and realised my mistake – and this added to difficulties in finding the place (the coordiantes for anyone who is going... More

We stayed for 9 nights in seaview villa 103, from Feb 7th to 16th 2014, with 2 kids aged 4 and 1 1/2. We chose Viva because of all the reviews here, and were not disappointed in the least. Yes, the sea is shallow (i.e. warm, calm, perfect for young kids, then!), and the resort is located in a very... More

Viva vacation is a great option for those looking for a quiet get-away. If you appreciate nature goods and spaciousness over luxurious design and very fine food, you would love it. The key advantages: - The beach is really specious, has great seating options and enjoys quiet waters - 20m long pool which is usually completely free - The restaurant... More

My friend and I stayed at this resort in early January for 4 nights. We loved out stay here!

Wife and I stayed here for nearly 3 weeks over Christmas/New Year 2013/14. We wanted somewhere away from the bars and discos of the crowded noisy Chawang east side of Koh Samui. So we opted for the west side; just south of the administrative centre of Nathon and close to the ferry services to the National Marine Park and magical... More

I just spent two weeks at Viva Vacation while doing a yoga-fasting course and feel so very fortunate to have stayed there. The beach is magnificent, boasting several hammocks and plenty of lawnchairs. The sala is occupied by massage therapists who come in to massage guests after a "hard day on the beach"! The hotel's grounds are breathtaking with a... More

This is my 3rd visit to Viva Vacation whilst doing a 7 day yoga/fast at Dhamma Healing International. This delightful resort is just a very special place to be (rare to find). There is immense presence and charm which emanates from it. There is a magical quality about the calm atmosphere where detailed authentic healthy care is taken of visitors,... More

Vica Vacation Resort is extraordinary! The room, the beach, the people, everything! Rooms: We booked the room with lowest price in the the hotel, and were simply expecting a standard bedroom with a small bathroom. But when we were shown into our VILLA, we were utterly astounded! It’s a literal SUITE with a spacious living room, a bedroom, a bathroom... More

Excellent resort with large bungalows well furnished. Not the place if you want lots of nearby bars and restaurants. Bur peaceful location, ideal for honeymooners wanting a romantic dinner on the beach. Kris the manager and his mum, Saijai, were excellent hosts and made my wife very happy.
