This is a long review for those who want all the details. Summary is: Tranquil location, very spacious and clean, excellent for a large group of friends or family, not for toddlers or those with mobility challenges. Great service.
We stayed at Villa Tasanee for a week for our 25th anniversary/family reunion. Our party included teenagers and a senior citizen.
The managers, Miriam and Harvest, were very proactive about communicating with us and letting us know what to expect on arrival. We arrive at Koh Samui airport and had 2 vans waiting with signs to take our large party to the villa. When we arrived at the villa our hosts were both waiting there with cold wet towels and fresh passion fruit juice for everybody. They walked us through all of the logistics of the house.
Only a 15-minute drive from the airport, this is a great location if you want a tranquil, quiet stay with an incredible view. You can walk down to the Samrong Bay beach in about 10-15 minutes. Or you can rent scooters from several nearby places, and anytime you need a taxi to take you somewhere, simply message the managers and they respond very quickly.
The kitchen is extremely well equipped. We hosted several large dinner parties there and there are plenty of dishes and cutlery, as well as cooking and serving utensils to feed large crowds. The dining table easily seats 12 people.
Excellent signal, easy to connect. It cut out one day after an overnight downpour, but that is to be expected of island life.
We all found the villa to be very clean on arrival. A team of cleaners came in every day to change linens and clean floors and bathrooms.
The bedrooms are extremely large, some of them like an entire apartment. Every bedroom had its own ensuite bathroom, some with very large bathtubs. The beds were extremely comfortable, with a good variety of pillows. There are bathrobes, slippers, plenty of towels, basic toiletries, and hair dryers.
POOL AND TERRACES
The pool is very large, but not deep. It has a Jacuzzi, but that is not hot, which you wouldn’t normally want in that climate anyway. The pool surround is very large, with plenty of chairs, tables and loungers. Several bedrooms have balconies, also with their own loungers and chairs.
OTHER COMMON AREAS
The living space was large, and the entire dining/living/recreation area had sliding accordion doors that all opened, so the entire space was very open and breezy. There is a pool table on the main level, full gym and laundry room on lower level. Also a games cupboard with lots of board games and cards.
The managers gave a very friendly welcome, and were both very quick to respond to any questions or requests. Check in and check out were painless.
KNOW IN ADVANCE
If you want to be able to walk to nightspots, or you have small children or any who are mobility challenged, this is not the best place for you. The villa has lots of stairs, glass, and a very large infinity pool on the edge of a cliff, as well as a short steep driveway to walk down to the entrance door.
We had the most relaxing stay at Villa Tasanee. Such a beautiful villa with a breathtaking view of the sea from the pool, terrace and also each room. Perched on a hill it probably has one of the best locations in Samui.
The 6 bedrooms provides ample space for even a few families with lots of entertainment from the wonderful pool table to board games and pool toys which they have equipped the villa with. A wonderfully thought out kitchen with every utensil you will ever need...its really been thought through.
A driver is on hand for those trips to pick up essential goodies or to visit nearby attractions, but with a fully equipped kitchen and wonderful surroundings there is not much need to escape.
Can't wait to return.
We stayed 4 nights in this beautiful villa... Excellent views and sunsets, spacious and clean with huge bedrooms and a well equipped kitchen. Very good service from the management and easy to get a van to drive you to the nearby activities... What a way to finish our holidays!
The Villa was great, plenty of space, great view and was in excellent condition when we first arrived. The bedrooms and amenities were well prepared. The location is quite remote in the northern area of Koh Samui, which can both be good (quiet) and bad (slightly remote, hilly).
Service was great, breakfast is prepared if a chef is hired (would absolutely recommend it, wonderful food). Transport is easily arranged by contacting the host and prices are very reasonable. There is a small beach about a 10 minute walk near the villa which offers are more relaxed experience compared to the much more populated Chaweng beach.
The pool was also in great condition and is cleaned very often in the early mornings. Though if you bring floaties be careful about the wind, it being an infinity pool and all (we had a couple fly off).
Stayed for 10 days and enjoyed the stay every night. Wonderful experience for our grad trip (group of 7).
We booked this beautiful Villa for 12 people and we had a absolutely great time together. The villa has an beautiful infinity pool and the rooms are huge!
It's a great stay in Samui with one of the best views. Moreover, the service by the host is too good.
We just loved our stay and hope to visit again.
Thanks for making our holidays special!
I was fortunate enough to win a 4 day, 4 night stay at Villa Tasanee. Communication was handled through Harvest, and everything ran like clockwork. From collection at the airport, his tour around the incredible villa (yes you will need a tour : )) To arranging drivers for us - nothing was a problem....!!!!
The first day the weather was beautiful, unfortunately it then turned unseasonably wet. However this is the properties strength. With pool table, dart board, awesome sound system, a well equipped gym and TV's in every room....we were able to entertain ourselves and recharge the batteries. Also the fully equipped kitchen (and I mean fully) and laundry room meant we could just look after ourselves if needed (the villa is serviced each day as well) The villa is massive, spacious and private. Every room is enormous with on-suites and tastefully decorated. On the main level all the doors are bifold, so opening them brings the outdoors indoors and expands the space seamlessly. The views and the infinity pool are to die for (the pool you can swim lengths in)......definitely the best in this area. While there are places to walk to (a couple of small beach areas) you will need transport to get to the places like Fisherman's Walk, Supermarkets, Restaurants etc...(approx 10-15 mins away) This property would be perfect for groups, weddings etc....especially if the weather turns unseasonal : )
Perched on top of a hill, Villa Tasanee boasts of fantastic views with an impressive infinity pool to top it off. The villa was very well equip from a great entertainment system to pool table, darts and even starlight ceilings! Each bedroom had its own ensuite and comfortable furnishings. It proved difficult to leave the comforts of the villa to go exploring. Many thanks to Harvest and Miriam-who took great care of us by arranging our transfers, in-house massages and a private chef for two of our dinners. Perfect for group getaways - you will not be disappointed!
