Everything about our stay was perfect starting from the moment we stepped off the plane. A driver greeted us at Koh Samui airport and took us to the docks where a speedboat whisked us off to Phangan. I was nervous because our trip was a bit last minute, we’d never been to Thailand before and we didn’t know how to take care of the logistics of our trip. This turned out to be a non-problem thanks to the owners of Bliss villas, Stephane and Sandrine. They’re just good people and took such amazing care of us. They are French expats but speak Thai very well (and perfect English) and know everything and everyone on the island. They have thought of everything: the villa was fully stocked with all that we could possibly need (for example multi standard electric plugs, nespresso machine, superb TV and sound system) and a rental car was waiting for us at the villa so we could explore on our own without worrying about taxis.
The villa was absolutely stunning. The pool, the private beach, the rooftop...it was actually quite difficult to leave but I recommend that you try to because the restaurants and waterfalls in the area are worth it. The villa is very modern, beautiful to look at, and all amenities were fully functioning. You couldn’t run out of movies to watch if you stayed a year. All the takeout menus are provided and well-organized..it felt more like room service (with larger selection). There is one room without a sea view but was fitted with a private mini garden containing a jacuzzi bathtub...it quickly became my favorite room.
I can’t say enough good things about the staff. It took me two days to realize that my coconuts weren’t magically opened but that the staff had come with a machete whenever my husband asked and opened them for us! They really go above and beyond. Checkout wasn’t rushed at all and they really thought of our schedule, making sure we had plenty of time to enjoy our final day at the villa while still doing everything to help us get to our boat taxi on time (even offering to drive us to the docks themselves because they thought the shuttle to the boat taxi seemed slightly crowded). I really can’t say enough good things about my stay.
Also! They work with an awesome PADI instructor if you’re looking to get certified or do some diving. Fred comes to the villa for certification/refresher courses and is also a great connection for really anything you want to know/do during your trip.
I went to a five star hotel called Anantara in Koh Samui just after my week in Phangan and it didn’t even come close to the level of service and comfort I had at bliss villas.
The owners have thought of everything. Our villa was pristine, plenty of space for our group (2 couples), a beautiful pool and within easy walking distance of local restaurants and bars. It's also very easy to get a taxi if you want to go a little further afield.
Attention to detail, great booking experience, very helpful owners - we would highly recommend this place.
We enjoyed very much our stay at Bliss Villa in Koh Phangan.
We were pleased to find a very clean, comfortable and beautiful luxury villa to live in, with private pool in a peaceful, authentic and unspoilt setting, surrounded by nature, right on the beach.
Plenty of services available, I experienced a great Thai massage on the rooftop of the villa facing the sea.
The villa benefits also from a great location, close to nice restaurants by the sea and close to Orion yoga center.
I used to walk 5 minutes in the morning to Orion for my yoga practice and in the evening take a 3 minute drive on my scooter to reach L'Alcove to enjoy a beautiful sunset listening to good music.
Our hosts Stephane and Sandrine were of great advice on what to do and places to go in Koh Phangan.
I will definitely return!
