We went to villa Karpe Diem as a family and it will remain an unforgettable memory for all of us. To live and enjoy the moment , that's what we were looking for. We only stayed for a few days and were really sad to leave this magical place, perched on the hills of Chaweng Noi, between the sea and the sky, with 180 degree ocean view and 2 infinity pools which gave us space and privacy.
Everything was thought of for comfort and well-being in this prestigious villa, from a warm welcome to a refined interior design, a gym, spa and massage area, not to mention the deliciousThai cuisine prepared by Aoy and Met which we just couldn't get enough of! A big thank you to both of them for their attention to details and discretion. We will definitely tell our friends and family members and hope to be back next year !

We only stayed for a few days and were really sad to leave this magical place, perched on the hills of Chaweng Noi, between the sea and the sky, with 180 degree view of the ocean and infinity shades of blues. Everything was thought of for comfort and well-being in this prestigious villa, from a warm welcome to a refined interior design, 2 pools on different levels allowing for space and privacy, not to mention the cuisine of Aoy and Met, which we just couldn't get enough of ! A big thank you to both of them for their attention to details and discretion. An unforgettable stay! We will come back and will definitely recommend it to all our friends & family members.
We are spending 5 days here with family, and after just one day, I felt obliged to write a review. The staff are just amazing, we are ending up eating each meal here by the pool. There is a storm on its way, and it’s a bit windy, but th layout of the villa allows us to do all sorts of things and enjoy ourselves to the max.
This is a gem of a place, and very close to being in paradise. Having a truly wonderful holiday given we have travelled all the way from Normandy, and recommend it to all our friends and family.
It is simply perfect.
A truly stunning villa with 180 degree views of the shore line. A wonderful place to relax, contemplate, read, work out and swim; what more could anyone want!
Aoy and her husband Met need to be congratulated on their excellent food, service and hospitality: a true reflection of the Thai experience.
Stayed here almost a year ago and had a wonderful time, so somewhat apprehensive of being disappointed - but didn't have to worry. If anything, it appears that the owners have invested even more into the villa since we went soon after it opened at Chinese New Year.
We used the full gym, that had the most wonderful views by the way; had in-villa massages and used the jacuzzi / spa area extensively. My wife also had some private yoga sessions by the pool and in the garden, which were not expensive.
My previous review covered the villa, and it's only got better. What stands out the most though, is that it is an absolutely spectacular villa inside and out, but it is also staffed by an absolutely lovely couple who really do take such good care of you; and you have the Guest Experience Managers as and when you need them, and the whole thing hangs together really well as it can be as intimate and private as you want it to be or you can have full on 5* / concierge service if thats what you want. The guest Experience Managers Jeremy and Julien both helped us get into a couple of restaurants during our stay that looked pretty booked up, with good seating.
Got in touch with the Owners through their Website to customise the trip for a friends birthday, and they were very accommodating. Thoroughly recommend.
We just returned from an amazing Samui holiday and staying at this place has been the highlight of our trip! We didn't get the chance to travel during Xmas or New Year so we thought we should find a really nice place to stay and have ourselves a late celebration of the holidays and this place was just perfect! A friend of ours happened to stay here last year and highly recommended it and it sure was as great as she described it. The service was excellent and we really loved the staffs who looked after us, we've been truly pampered by them and as if that wasn't enough there was also Jeremy who was always available to arrange our requests and needs.
Our favorite part of the villa were the 2 huge infinity pools with amazing views which were perfect for afternoon dips especially when it gets really hot. There was also a cool little bbq area near the pool and plenty of outdoor spaces to just relax and enjoy the breeze.
The bedrooms were awesome too and waking up to those breath taking views was the best thing ever! We loved every minute of our stay here and we couldn't thank our friend enough for recommending this place to us. We'll try and book this villa again as soon as possible.
We went as 4 couples - which was perfect as there were 4 separate suites each with private bathroom and patio / balcony. Frankly speaking, there were sufficient space for our kids to sleep on the floor. We will bring kids next time.
Food - the two live in helpers cook amazing thai food and speak decent English. We picked from their menu but we also Google some photos and asked them to cook. They will go buy fresh local ingredients twice a day. Much cheaper and better then eating out. Must try their pad thai, lemongrass salad, deep fried prawns, soupy noodles with veggie and pork ribs, mango sticky rice....
Service - the helpers super attentive. They would remember what drinks you like and arrange the next day. The guest managers are even better. You can ask them for any help via phone call, email and whatsapp. The guest service manager even helped us order alcohol, young coconut and lots of fruits before we even arrived.
Activities - there was absolutely no reason to leave the villa during our 1 week stay. We called in professionals for our in villa massage (almost every day). Some of the wives did yoga and mediation. The husbands spent most of their time on the patio or in the two swimming pools with their chilled beers.
Sunrise - THIS IS A MUST. Just sit up on your bed or walk out to your balcony. The sun will be waiting for you.
