“Our Amazing Wedding Holiday!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013

Words cannot express the abundance of gratitude and praise we have for SBV and all the wonderful people that work there. From the staff at the Reception to the Clubhouse to the numerous housekeepers around the Village. It was a huge task to accommodate a party of 100 people for 5 nights with all their daily requests and the events that ran for over 3 nights but it was handled with the utmost of precision and professionalism. The villas were absolutely breathtaking with each one possessing their distinct look, feel and vibe. The room service was of five star quality and the food that was dished out on a daily basis was scrumptious to say the least. The beach was a perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of Chaweng and Lamai and one which our guests enjoyed tremendously. A big shout out to Debbie, Emma, James and all the rest for all their time and effort towards our wedding celebrations and making it an experience that we will never forget nor will any of our guests. So much so that people are already inquiring about going back there again for holidays and future wedding events! We highly recommend SBV to all family, friends and all you readers on TripAdvisor.
Ciao !!

Dear Liesel & Melroy

It is reviews like yours that make us know everything little thing we do and our attention to detail is absolutely worth it - so great to make our customers happy and give them the holiday and in your case, the wedding celebration you were hoping for. It is such a huge responsibility fulfilling our guests dream weddings, all the staff are very keen to meet and exceed all of your expectations.

Debbie is fantastic and has a keen eye for details and is fastidious about every wedding or celebration we host - as she is aware that it is the memories that will stay with you and your guests forever and so she aims to ensure that we over deliver to meet your dreams.

It really is great to hear such wonderful words about our village, the staff, the service and your experience and we want to thank you for taking the time to share it with everyone as we think anyone would love Samui Beach Village like we do.

Thank you again...and it would be great to see you for your 1st anniversary!

Kindest regards,
Phil Dunlop

we have not long returned from a family holiday and what a wonderful time we had the villa was perfect lovely pool and the staff well you cannot fault them and always smiling Thailand should be known as the land of smiles the restaurant had excellent food and nothing was too much trouble James was wonderful and really looked after us but do watch out for Nancys long island tea Wow.
My son in laws hired scooters for $6.00 a day and had a ball and did not witness any road rage which is amazing when you see how much traffic is on the road.
Emma in reception was very helpful to.
We really hope to return soon.

We are not long back from our dream wedding at SBV, and we don't know where to start with praise for the beautiful location, villas , beautiful beaches and most importantly the fabulous staff at the resort. We were a bit apprehensive at first about booking our wedding there without really known anything about the place, but we did. It was everything and more than what we expected and every single one of our guests were blown away. The set up, the attention to detail was exactly what we said we wanted and Debbie, SBV's wedding co-ordinator ran our wedding from start to finish like clock work (on both days). The reason I say both days is because we had 2 wedding days. One where a monsoon lashed down on us before the bride even got out of the villa and the next day when we put it off and did it all again. Debbie and her team couldn't have been more organised and professional. We had our wedding at baan Flora and our reception which catered for us and our 22 guests perfectly. Food excellent , photos brilliant, video brilliant and DJ Blair (Sting) was super. We moved into Baan Oasis which was excellent for all of our guests to hang out at the pool to sun themselves and enjoy a few beverages in the evening/night/morning (again sorry about the noise) Seriously If anyone is thinking of booking their wedding at SBV I would recommend splashing out and including the drum parade, elephant, Buddhist monks, fire dancers and fire works, you won't be sorry. They are expensive but were so worth every cent.
I could go on and on and on about Koh Samui and SBV but I'll finish up by saying to anyone out there, if you choose this resort you won't regret it for one minute. Big thanks to Debbie,Emma,James,Chang and all the the staff, we will be back again with the whole gang soon..Adios for now... Jimmy & Niamh

We recently had the pleasure of staying at the amazing Baan Samara Villa (part of Samui Beach Village). In my industry I am constantly faced with level of services and found the hospitable nature and friendliness of the staff, amongst the beauty and comfort of the Villa and Samui, to be one of the best experiences ever!
As Destination Wedding Specialist, I highly recommend staying here. A special thank you to Ray (Villa Manager) and Chef. We are missing you already.

Perfect place to get away and relax. We were treated like royalty with everything you could ask for. Spa treatments were heavenly and good was delicious. Private pool provided privacy and perfect surroundings to tan topless! Cocktails delivered to your doorstep made our life easy. Not really set on a nice beach but we did spend most of the time by the pool.
