Companion Reviews

Thailand’s second largest island, Koh Samui has always been a draw for luxury travellers; palm-fringed satin sandy beaches, coconut groves, tropical rainforest, world-class cuisine and a relaxed, serene vibe – what’s not to love. Now, as well as the vast, luxury resorts, visitors have another more intimate option; a handpicked luxury vacation villa from Barefoot Luxury Villas, one of which is the stunning 4-bedroom oceanfront Villa Nagisa.


The villa lies just beyond the stunning beaches of Plai Laem on Koh Samui where the natural shape of the peninsula means that you feel as if you’re on your own private island! Despite this, you are only 10 minutes away from the main action in the area, so you can shop in Chaweng, dine in the Bophuts Fishermans Village or experience jungle excursions in the tropical rainforests of Maenam, it’s all at your fingertips.

Style, Character & Facilities

There is a real exclusivity to the villa. The interior is elegant, contemporary and open plan and the unending ocean views literally follow you as you drift from room to room. Little extras take it from luxury to ultra-luxury; oil burners in the bathrooms, hot tubs, minibars in the bedrooms and a multimedia entertainment system that will excite tech-lovers.

Outside is where you’ll want to be though. The sea frontage pool and large sun terrace offer a stunning, private oceanfront landscape. Take a cooling swim in the curvaceous 18m infinity pool, a pampering dip in the Jacuzzi, relax on a poolside lounger or on an oversized beanbag on the garden level; bliss. As the sun sets (and you won’t want to miss this display) Moroccan lanterns transform the terrace making it the perfect spot for a chilled evening; enjoy a sundowner cocktail from the swim up bar, dine with those seafront views and lay back with a glass of bubbly on your lounger until late.


Each of the four master bedrooms is its own private sanctuary, with a private oceanfront terrace and seating for 2. The wonderful ambience continues as do the facilities. with great tech in the bedrooms, double sinks in the ensuite bathrooms and soft water rain showers plus a soak away lovers tub that invites romance.


The service is a large part of the experience of staying here or at any Barefoot Luxury Villa. The on-site management services are second to none and they arrange anything for you; from excursions or trips to on-site yoga classes, transfers and spa treatments – anything to make your life easier and hassle-free. Your welcome is as good as any 5-star hotel; with refreshing drinks, cold towels and a fruit platter!
