“Samui Paradise”
Reviewed January 2, 2015 for a stay in December 2014

The owner of Vista Samui has the big ticket items sorted:
1. A vehicle at one's disposal, incl a very accommodating driver
2. A chilled and comfortable environment
3. High speed internet
4. Pool table, stocked bar, books, DVDs and a serious selection of TV channels for when one just wants to veg, and
5. Live in staff who are happy to assist however they can.

It is not often that expectations are exceeded when booking via a web site, however I am happy to say that ours have been. From the on-time pick up from the airport, to the cool towels and welcome drinks on arrival to the fantastic Thai meal and sad goodbyes, our holiday at Vista Samui has been nothing but fantastic. The villa caters for all ages and especially to stressed-out working parents. The kids have been easily entertained by means of the pool, pool table, and DVDs, whilst the parents have been able to chill around the pool, either in or out of the sun. Tin, the driver, is at one's disposal for shopping trips and other outings, knowing where all the touristy spots are and thus there is no need to book through a "middle-man". Pi looks after the cleaning requirements and will happily assist in the kitchen during meal preparation and cooking.

The added bonus for fitness fanatics is the hill up to the house and beyond, that provides a serious heart racing calorie burning start to one's day.

On a final note, as a female I had a few recommendations for the owner Dave but one mail and the recommendations were taken on board and were being addressed before we left. Dave takes a keen interest in ensuring yr stay at Vista Samui is the best it could possibly be.

Would I recommend Vista Samui to friends and family ... I already have!!

A once in alive time experience,one my family will not soon forget.The pictures on the website do not even do it justice it is even more breathtaking in person.Situated high on a hill overlooking the Gulf of Siam we felt as if we were on the most beautiful place on earth.The owner Dave was a true pleasure to deal with,he answered any question I had about the property In a timely manner and really seemed to care that our stay would be a memorable one.Pi and Tin the onsite help made us feel welcome and displayed tremendous hospitality to each and everyone or us.One night Tin even barb excused for us poolside.Although we were sad to leave the memories of our time spent at Vista Samui will keep smiles on our faces for the rest of our lives

“A very special villa”
Reviewed August 21, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

A stunning villa with fabulous views. Our children appreciated the pool table, the extensive film selection and the fabulous infinity pool. Pi and Tin are extremely helpful, Tin took us to many beautiful beaches and local restaurants and is a whizz at the BBQ whilst Pi cooked a delicious Thai dinner and generally tidied up after us. Would definitely recommend this villa to anyone who does not want to be in the thick of things and who would enjoy the peace, tranquillity and stunning views which this villa provides.

“Absoutly Great!!!”
Reviewed July 22, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We, a family of 5 people, stayed a week at Vista Samui which is a beautiful and spacious villa with tasteful decor and attention to detail with beautiful panoramic view. We had a fantastic stay all week and would love to come back. Tin, the driver, is a very pleasant man, who makes it easy for you, to do every kind of excursions from the villa. David, the owner, was despite he does not live there, accessible and payed attention to your comfort!
We can highly recommend Vista Samui

“Simply Lovely”
Reviewed July 6, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We spent a lovely few days relaxing and unwinding at Vista Samui. The villa is very stylish, spacious and comfortable. It is nestled high up in the hills surrounded by greenery and with gorgeous views out to sea. Our children (ages 7, 9 and 12) particularly loved the infinity pool and the pool table.Tin and Pi were on hand at all times to attend to our every need and to drive us wherever we wanted to go, though we didn't really feel the need to go anywhere! Pi is a great cook managing to cater for a vegetarian, nut allergies and fussy children! Dave the owner is very attentive and obliging and happy to help out in any way he can. We would have no hesitation in returning to Vista Samui or recommending it to others.

“A fantastic villa, warm welcome and a wonderful place to holiday”
Reviewed April 25, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

We had a super stay. The villa did not disappoint at all, in fact the photos do not do it justice, it is more beautiful than we imagined. Pi and Tin are wonderful and gave us such a warm welcome and really looked after us. Tin is a very careful and considerate driver and we toured most of the island with him and felt safe on the roads the whole time. Pi is a wonderful cook and we had several home cooked meals which were delicious. Booking the villa was a breeze, and Dave provided great support throughout. Thank you - we had a wonderful holiday.

“excellent serviced villa. great views and lots of space!”
Reviewed March 7, 2014 for a stay in February 2014

We actually decided on this villa without seeing any of the reviews here - I loved the views from the photos and the fact there are staff/locals to assist you in case of need. I cannot stress what a difference these have made for our stay. Additionally, February is generally very hot in Thailand, but thanks to its location up on the hill, the place is incredibly breezy and pleasant day and night. We loved the huge spaces in the bathrooms and sitting rooms, the comfortable sala, the snooker table, and most of all, to be able to look out into the jungle and sea from almost anywhere in the house. Tin and Pi were there daily taking great care of us and the house and most amazingly, they seemed to have done all the work without you even noticed them! And one more thing, on the whole stay, we were not bitten by mosquitoes once, which is a never-ever for me and the kids in the tropics! I hope we could come back some other time, and stay for a longer period. Thank you very much Dave, Tin & Pi !
