This visit to Koh Samui was a quick 5-day trip for two girlfriends having a mini-break, so we needed either twin accommodation or two bedrooms. Out of season Punnpreeda was excellent value, and we had a seaview villa which was blissful. One of the reasons we chose this property was it's proximity to the "Fisherman's Village" - a 15 minute walk away and offering a wide range of restaurants, bars and shopping as well as the Friday night spectacular of "Walking Street".
The villa was clean and very spacious and the staff were wonderful, with daily breakfast served in the villa and a mini-bar included*.
The private pool is a plunge pool, with a shallow area with sun loungers adding a level of holiday decadence.
For families sharing, one bathroom has a shower, the other a spa-bath with a hand-held shower hose. The bath is a little pointless in Thailand, (personal opinion) as it takes ages to fill and the weather is so warm anyway. It was difficult not having 2 showers available and the wooden blinds in the bathrooms need replacing, plastic ones would be more practical. Lighting in the bathrooms was not that good, but both bedrooms had concertina windows to the living area which let in loads more light.
Upside: good location, good value, beautiful property. Breakfast and mini-bar included. Umbrellas, robes, slippers and pool towels supplied. Transport available including airport transfers (there is a charge). Security on site, very helpful and friendly staff. Quick and reasonable room service is available. Sister property Punnpreeda Hip Resort has a restaurant and larger pool, and guests can use these with a free transfer shuttle at certain times of the day.
Downside: Punnpreeda is on a main road and they are currently building additional villas and a new reception area in the front, which caused a little inconvenience, although this will be finished in a few months. A large construction project across the road caused some dirt and disturbance at the entry, although you don't hear the traffic from villas on the seafront and again I imagine this will be complete in 6-9 months. There were a lot of mosquitos but insect cream and mozzie coils were supplied. The beach is not really suitable for use - rocky and dirty with a lot of rubbish although there are other beaches in the vicinity that the staff can direct you to.
*Mini-bar includes snacks (peanuts and cookies), 2 x large bottles water, red wine, Singha beer, local whiskey and some soft drinks
