Tthis is simply a wonderful retreat, made all the more perfect by the manger, Bill, who we really couldn't thank enough. He did so much for us, countless lifts into the town, was always around to chat to, and really added that extra personal experience.
We were even upgraded on our arrival and stayed in the fabulous owners apartment.

We have such high expectations of holidays and although, not necessarily disappointed I often return home and reflect on an "ok" time......not on this holiday!

Samui Mountain Village is a GEM, seldom found.

An Intimate, tailor made resort, perfectly situated on a cliff with uninterrupted views of the very best Koh Samui has to offer, beaches, coves, Islands, blue blue sea, stars and everything you imagine a tropical Island to be...you see it all from your villa, poolside, and gardens of Samui Mountain Village.

You will be made to feel very special at SMV by the kindness and hospitality of Bill, the owner/manager. Bill and his lovely, smiley staff, Molly the dog included, make every effort to ensure your holiday is one to remember, for all the right reasons. Absolutely, nothing is too much trouble.
The Villas are spacious, with a great atmosphere and because of the open plan layout you can enjoy the view, even, from your big comfy bed!
Everything is up to date, maintenance, bathrooms, lashings of hot water, etc., cleanliness, fluffy towels, sheets, attention to detail is done with pride at SMV.
The pool area and gardens are quite beautiful. The pool is large with the view all around you, the water is silky and not chlorinated, carefully salinated for hygiene .
Everywhere are flowers, shrubs and trees, but surprisingly very few insects, the location being on a hillside with an accompanying gentle breeze, very welcoming in 30 degrees!

I urge ALL to go to this unique, charming, peaceful paradise......it really does exceed all expectation, and now that we have found it, we shall be visiting Samui Mountain Village again and again!

We cannot speak highly enough of our recent stay at Samui Mountain Village, from the airport pick up to our "sad to see you leave" farewell, we felt as if we were the only guests in the place.

Everything we had read about this place was delivered: the spectacular views; the generous size of the villas; the beautiful bird-haven gardens; the always on hand, but not intrusive friendly staff and even Molly the dog. It was quickly confirmed we had made the right choice.

No request went unattended, and the Manager Bill could not have assisted us to enjoy our time on the island any better. He offered lots of valuable suggestions and was a great help organising a hire car and its collection.

The are lots of places to stay on the island, but it would be Impossible to beat the view from the Samui Mountain Village, anywhere else. Sitting in the Sala, swimming, lying on a poolside lounge, or relaxing on your private balcony it is an uninterrupted wonder as you look across the bay to Chaweng Beach and beyond. If you are lucky like us, after the sun sets the city's twinkling lights will be improved by the bonus of a fireworks display.

This is a venue that has been designed with the guest in mind. Even if you miss the attention to detail dressing of the air-conditioned unit. You will not take the comfortable sleep-ensuring, king sized mattress and quality bed linen for granted - they are fabulous.

If you can be tempted off the hill, nearby Lamai township is another bonus. It is softer and quieter than better known Chewang. There is shopping without bustling crowds or traffic, a bevy of great food and dining options, and inviting sandy beach foreshores. What more could you want on holiday?

We will be back!

We have returned from Samui Mountain Village one week ago and are still mesmerized by the place. It is located on a cliff neighboring the Sandalwood Luxury Villas and therefore offers the same unobstructed views of the Chaweng bay and beyond to the island of Koh Phangan. No pictures can transport the serenity you feel once you put foot on the property. We stayed in Villa 5 which includes a modern kitchen and a huge deck. It was great, sitting there, gazing over the sea, watching all the exotic birds and butterflies that make themselves a home in the tastefully designed garden and listening to the sound of nature.
As if this hadn't been enough, Bill, the owner, and his staff really went out of their way to help us getting settled. The pickup from the ferry worked out perfectly. As arranged per email before our arrival, Bill also organized a small cheap rental 4x4 Suzuki for us. It's a good idea letting Bill organize the car for you as you need the right car to make the steep hill up from the coastal road to the property and also, he knows the agencies that can be trusted. I would strongly recommend renting a car to get around on the island as taxi prices are ridiculous on Koh Samui.
Bill pointed out all the interesting stuff on a map, recommending scenic roads, restaurants, shops etc., so you feel immediately very confident about the island and the vacation can start.
Thanks Bill for the nice stay and greetings from Stuttgart, Germany.

My husband and I spent ten nights in villa 5 for our honeymoon and it was amazing! The views were breathtaking and the salt water pool was pristine and we usually had it all to ourselves. The Villa was immaculate and exceptionally clean, the staff are very detail oriented and extremely accommodating. They took us to the store to stock up on groceries and gave us rides down to the beach. The nearby beaches are top notch, we loved the beach Chaweng Noi, which is only 5 min away. We did not rent a car, but walked down the hill and caught the local transportation, called a songtheaw that can take you anywhere on the island. We can't to go back!

Thank you Bill and all the other staff at SMV. You really have created a little piece of perfection in the wonderfully imperfect Thailand! We stayed in the Owners Suite for 1 week with our little boy at the end of January and this was the highlight of our trip. Our expectations were very high having read all the reviews, but I have to say we were still absolutely blown away by it. The villa was like a palace. It seemed to be maintained by magic because the whole place was immaculate, but we never saw any of the staff doing anything! The pool was beautiful and so much more pleasant than the usual chlorine pool. The "onsite" masseur, Chompoo was the best we had in Thailand. And then there was Bill - the most helpful owner we have come across - nothing was too much trouble.

Room Tip: As Bill will inform you, this is not a place geared towards families and young children. However, w...
