Traveled with family of 2 adults and 2 children during July 2014. Booking was simply done through email. Kris the owner and GM responded to my emails promptly and rates were fixed by email. No advance payment was required. First the resort is located 45 minutes from the Airport or If you are coming from Surathani take lomphraya which will drop you to Nathon pier which is 5 minutes drive to the resort. Viva vacation has 11 independent villas some of them sea facing and some facing garden. resort is neat and clean, rooms are spacious and clean. My room 104 had living room, fridge, tv with few english channels, tea/coffee maker. extra bed can be fitted in this room. resort is located on quiet beach , no watersorts available on the beach so be prepared.beautiful swimming pool. During our stay beach was bit let down and were unable to swim it could be because of monsoon season,
As we living here in Thailand for many years we know the real taste of thai food so the restaurant serves some basic thai food ( just ok to my standard). Since the resort is in remote place you need transportation to move around. Resort Offers motorbike for rent and car too. No other restaurants nearby so you need to eat at the resort but if you have transportation you can explore places near to nathon pier. Resort arranged sight seeing for us, they also booked Angthong day trip for us. Breakfast was standard with fixed items and you need to tick whatever you wanted I have uploaded the photo of the Breakfast menu which remains the same everyday.Overall nice place to stay. Special thanks to Kris, Son and Koi.

Room Tip: Sea views rooms are good starting from room 101 to 106

We spend our honeymoon at Viva Vacation Resort. It was the perfect choose for us! We had a very nice welcomed in with a bed nice and romantic arranged wit petals of flowers and with a card that greeting us for our marriage. We had room nr 101, right on the beach and pool. We liked it very much. Big rooms, dressing room and a very big bathroom with service toilet to. A lot of fine details tastefully arranged make it a select place. The house has everything....air conditioner (it is important there) place when you can make a coffee, minibar, tv, a lot of towels for the beach and inside towels, products for the bathroom, slippers, even umbrellas....
outside you can see a beautiful garden, and a nice beach. You can't really swim in the see because the water is not very deep, but there is a great pool, big and clean.
The food is...excellent!!! We love spice type food, and didn't try the European menu. The best of what we try in Koh Samui. Great breakfast ! You can choouse from a list of foods. We enjoined every breakfast. And loved the fresh fruit cocktails !
The family and staff is very nice and friendly, and discreet to.
The "inconvinient" is that is faraway from the Lamai or Chaweng, or other animated places. We chose the quiet type place. But you can rent a car or scooter from Kris at the resort. They have also bikes for free. We rent for a day scooter, and it was for us a stressful experience, because we where not accommodate with it and with the island traffic and we had a fall :), but because we had no high speed everything was ok. We scratched a car and pay for it and the scooter was ok, Kris had a very close and detailed looked on it.
If you want to make trips, they are help you with information and bookings or they call for you a taxi.
In the room you have a book with information about the place,island, country.
We had a very nice vacation and we are grateful for the owners and staff. There is a piece of Paradise ! Definitely we recommend Viva Vacation Resort.

Room Tip: all rooms are very good and, I think, like the same. If you want quite in the afternoon, maybe you don't choose the place near the pool. But the noise is not very loud even if you are stayng right there. We had nr 101 room ( house).

As others have commented the family run nature of this resort is great. Everyone working here is so pleasant and helpful, they really make you feel at home.

I visited in June which apparently is low season so it was very quiet. There were just a few others at the resort. Even with one family, the resort was peaceful. It was lovely relaxing by the pool and on the beach.

The beach is nice and you can take a nice walk along the beach for a long way and still not really see anyone else. The sea is shallow quite far out so it's nice for sitting in the warm shallow water but not great if you want to swim, but then there's the pool for that. The pool is lovely and long enough to do some lengths in!

The breakfast options were great as were the dinner choices.

You can rent motorbikes or a car from the resort which is handy as it is fairly isolated. I just made use if the free bicycles they offer and cycled into the nearest town which wasn't too far. There are a number of shops/cafés there, including a tesco and you have a fridge in your room so that's useful.

The villas are brilliant, really spacious. It's nice having a separate living room with a TV you can turn to watch from there or in bed. They have plenty of DVDs you can borrow!

Overall I had a lovely relaxing stay and felt nicely taken care of by all the staff.

Great place to come and relax. Very good value for money. A bit far from the action but they gave everything you need here, pool, beach, massages and restaurant (try the corn fritters). Rooms are huge and well maintained.

Our second stay at Viva Vacation was as positive as the first one two years ago. We were greeted as friends and felt like coming home. Kris is a perfect host and Koi is an excellent enhancment to the team (we hope your leg is ok again!).
The breakfast list to choose the personal favorites from is one of the improvements we really appreciated.

Besides, we hope that nothing will change until we come back, hopefully next February.
All the best to the entire team!
