Review: The Magical Beachside Villa Suma On Koh Samui


Book A Hotel

For a perfect, leisurely retreat, come to Koh Samui to feel the sand between your toes and hear the gentle lapping of warm waves. Rather than staying in another hotel or resort, instead take over the stylish, luxury Villa Suma for unrivalled intimacy and privacy.


Villa Sum is located in the exclusive Laem Sor bay, one of the most beautiful destinations on the southern coast of Koh Samui, Thailand. Tucked away from busy tourist areas, Laem Sor offers pristine white sands fringed with coconut plantations, sparkling turquoise waters and spectacular views across to the neighbouring island. If you want to combine your relaxation with some exploring, you’re in a great position to do so. Just a few minutes from the villa is the Koh Tan and Koh Matsum Islands day trip departure dock or you can take a short car ride to waterfalls, elephant rides, or simply soak up the local village culture.

British Airways, Malaysia Airlines and Air France all offer connecting flights from London Heathrow to Koh Samui and the villa is located just a 40-minute drive from the airport.

Style & Character

The villa has an elegant, cutting-edge, open-plan design; with high, vaulted ceilings and oversized doors and windows which make the most of the paradise beachfront location and tropical climate. The stunning interiors are contemporary with high-end comfortable furnishings and unique statement artefacts.

Service & Facilities

The villa boasts a stunning open plan kitchen, living and dining area and vast outdoor living area. The gardens feature a large open-air deck with both sun-traps and shade and a heavenly 12-metre infinity pool. Favourite spots include the funky moonlight terrace on the second floor, the landscaped courtyard and the sofa bale by the pool; all of which are equally divine! When you step out of the pool you are literally steps from the beach. Here you can have some fun with kayaks, paddle boards and jet skis if you’re feeling active or just paddle in the inviting warm waters.

Just because you’re not staying in a hotel, please don’t think for a minute that the service need suffer! The villa is fully staffed with a wonderful team that includes a villa manager, a chef, a nanny, housekeeping and a chauffeur so you’ll be totally spoilt but also have the extra privacy, flexibility and space that renting a villa gives.

The villa is operated by the reputed Pavana Hospitality Group who also run Villa Kirana which lies next to Villa Suma. Watch this space as a third equally luxurious villa is being added to their portfolio in 2018!


There are 6 bedrooms and 7 bathrooms so it’s the perfect villa for a family or groups of friends holidaying together. One of the rooms is a dedicated kids bunk and play room which will be hugely popular with any young ones! The large, airy rooms are positioned to make the most of the fabulous views, all have king beds and those high ceilings with plush furnishings and contemporary décor.

Food & Drink

Your culinary adventure starts with a delicious complimentary daily continental breakfast and continues with whatever you ask your private chef to provide and wherever you choose to dine! Maybe poolside at lunchtime, on the terrace as the sun sets in the evening, in the dining area for a formal meal or even in your own room for some extra privacy. From delicious Thai dishes to a seafood BBQ to plates of pasta and salads; there’s something that everyone will enjoy.
