We (3 couples) just returned from a week at Banyan Villa, Lotus Terraces in Koh Samui and we have nothing but the best to say about this experience, from the moment we arrived to the last minute before we sadly departed, the staff was amazing, the chef, Koon Nam was superb, the villa nicely kept, had spa treatments almost everyday in their private spa, the Villa's manager Sue, was very helpful. We were also kindly invited for drinks and beautiful food to the adjacent villa (Lotus beach) by their owners and had a lovely time. We felt very relaxed and totally at "home" and even fell in love with one of the Villa's cat (Singha).
We will for sure be back! Thank you for a great time!

Our stay at the Banyan Villa was simply perfect. The location is fantastic, the villa amazing. Our maid and cook was perfection. Our every need was met, by all the staff. It was hard to leave. We loved our private pool and beach and the meals were to die for. We can not wait to return.

Room Tip: All rooms and villas are gorgeous

Words cannot describe just how wonderful the Lotus Terraces are, but I'll give it a go! From the moment we arrived til the sad moment we had to leave, our every need was taken care of. Firstly by Sea, our maid, who served breakfast on the patio every morning and secondly by Sue who organised car rental, taxis and restaurant bookings, and always with the loveliest of smiles! Nothing was too much trouble and we were made to feel very special. The beach is lovely & quiet with a great little authentic Thai beach bar next door serving fab, cheap food & cold beers. A ten minute walk along the beach takes you to a restaurant, again serving great food. We visited many other busier places and enjoyed their hustle & bustle, but were always so pleased to be returning to our lovely villa, our little bit of "heaven on earth". Next time we visit - & we can't wait to be back there! - we'll be taking all the family with us!

We just spent two fabulous weeks of luxury and relaxation at the Banyan Villa at Lotus Terraces. We found it immaculately clean and gorgeous. The staff and the manager, Sue, couldn't have been more helpful and friendly. All tours, spa treatments, car rentals, concierge inquiries, were arranged seamlessly by Sue. Koon Nam's cooking was nothing less than amazing, you can choose or just let her establish the menu for you. The private spa was wonderful! The Banyan Villa's private lap pool, right off the master bedroom, was a real treat. The beach is not busy making it seem like you have the beach and ocean to yourself. Best beach spot on Samui! We can hardly wait to return next year. Diana and Keith.

Jane the reservation manager was fantastic
We were worried about mosquitos since we have a 1 year baby and they took care to spray the area before we've arrived
Sue, the person in charge of the Villa was very nice. She took care of car rentals, reservations for taxi, tips with restaurants, etc etc. She would come every day to our Villa to check if every thing was going well
The Villa is within minutes by car from Fisherman's Village and very close by The Farmer's restaurant, voted by Amex one of the Best Thai Restaurants in 2011
The pool in front of the beach, which by the way was very very nice, was very convenient
No complains and only excellent memories

Room Tip: If you have 4 couples the front villa is the best - While staying in the Villa right next to it with...

After my first visit I never stopped dreaming about going there again. This time it was a family outing and I had the chance to relive and share my first wonderful experience. We all loved it, the Heliconia Villa was our home away from home. The interior of the villa is given much thought, the living area and the rooms are beautifully decorated and equipped with everything you might need and the beds are perfect. We felt very welcome. The service was excellent and the staff bends over backwards to make one feel happy and special. The professional and friendly Resort Manager Sue was always there for us and organized our transports, dinner reservations and the in-house massages. Nothing was impossible. The set up of the resort is brilliant, the garden with the beautiful Frangipani and many other plants and flowers, the poolside, the quiet and clean beach, the blue sea, the spectacular sunsets and the villas make it easy to relax and enjoy every minute. Bophut, Chaweng and other interesting but busy places are not too far away and coming back home to Lotus Terrace stands for finding the perfect “oasis in the desert". Back home I will now dream about my next stay there and I will make sure that it will happen sooner than later. We stayed only 4 days (15.02. to 19.02.2012) and my personal recommendation is: stay at least a week to enjoy this place and its surroundings to the fullest.

Where do you start? It has to be the staff who are uniformly friendly, helpful and efficient. They really care and it shows.
Lotus Terraces is fabulous boutique resort with nice location. Far enough from Chaweng to feel relaxed, but close enough to Bophut and Fisherman's Village for a nice night out.
Resort manager Sue, will make you so welcome and is extremely professional and personable.
Our Heliconia villa was beautiful, with a lovely big living room and balcony with sea view. Good powerful aircon keeps it deliciously cool. Daily refreshing of all the towels and toiletries.
We arrived with 3 months old baby and the staff made our vacation as comfortable and enjoyable as it possibly could be.
Stayed at many 5* resorts and Lotus Terraces is up there with the best of them. Great value for money and would certainly return when next in Samui.

Stayed from 30th November to 10th December 2011.
