“Perfect couples weekend away”
Reviewed 21 August 2015 for a stay in September 2014

A group of friends and I were in Samui for a friend's wedding at the Samujana. It's always a bit of surprise when booking a villa that you haven't been to. Villa 5 aka Villa Sangkachai was the perfect space for our weekend in Samui. The tri-level design and attention to detail was very thoughtful. My friends enjoyed the large pool/common area where we practiced yoga, had daily massages and enjoyed the beautiful sea view. The nicely fitted gym, recreation room and theater was a nice plus. The rooms all felt very private and had sea views.

One of the best parts of our stay was the house manager (Jah). She was so pleasant to work with and really did everything she could to make our stay enjoyable and helped us organize our in villa activities (yoga, massage, lunch) and transportation needs.

I believe this villa was slightly more expensive than some of the other options on the property but it was definitely worth it and you can feel the difference.

The group was four couples (children stayed home!). I don't think young children are allowed on premise.

“The most amazing vacation spot”
Reviewed 9 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We came back from this perfect home a couple days ago and we already miss it a lot. I stayed at Villa Sangkachai with my parents, 90-year-old grandma, and my little sister for a week. We all had a blast and agreed it was the best vacation we had.

The entire place was kept spotless all the time, we were very impressed. The manager, Jah, was extremely helpful and professional. She helped with everything we needed. Chef's food was amazing as well, we ended up eating almost every meal at the villa. Last but not least, the owner himself was extremely nice, knowledgeable, and helpful (I did not get to meet him but exchanged several emails with him to plan the vacation).

The villa is incredibly beautiful. We really enjoyed the beautiful pool area where blue colors of the pool, sky, and the ocean all blend together gorgeously. We enjoyed barbeque at the rooftop, worked out at the gym, watched concert clips at the cinema room, and fell asleep in comfortable rooms with incredible views. Masseuses came to the villa and gave us great massages well. Whenever we needed to go somewhere, Jah scheduled a big van for us and took us everywhere.

We really had an amazing vacation here and would highly recommend it to anyone.

“Best Vacation Ever”
Reviewed 2 December 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Villa Sangkachai is without comparison. There is nothing more we could have asked for during our stay in October 2014. We were a large group 5 adults and 4 children ranging from a year to 60's and everyone enjoyed the experience.

Firstly, the team supporting your stay are outstanding from the moment we were met at the airport to the day of the departure. They were equal measure 'always available' and 'unobtrusive'. It was as if the villa magically maintained it's composure and appearance despite the best efforts of the guests to create a home away from home.

The cook deserves special mention, the food preparation was outstanding and she satisfied every request, no small feat when you consider the age spread of the guests. Eating on the roof ("The fancy place" to our children) was outstanding.

The property itself is a dream as you can see from the pictures, which although amazing don't do it justice. The pool and outdoor lounge space are incredibly with interconnected music system keeping everyone entertained for hours.

The bedrooms, all of them, are idyllic. Great views, automated curtains so you can greet the day without getting out of bed and out door showers.

The cinema room and catalogue movies and shows to watch deserves a special mention. It was used daily. Mostly after a long lounge in the sun during the day and a great meal the family would gather to watch one of the many blockbusters.

If you're looking for an escape that will satisfy all your needs, this is the place. It was so special we are expecting to return within the year.

A special thanks to the team at the villa that made it so perfect for us.

“The Ultimate Luxury”
Reviewed 15 August 2014 for a stay in March 2014

Villa Sangkachai, its design and scenery were so amazingly beautiful that we literally lost for words when we first stepped into it. What you see in the pictures is what you will get and there is no bluff about it. The villa has 4 bedrooms with comfortable space, bars, a mini cinema with great sound system, pool table… basically enough entertainment to keep you occupied within the villa if you do not plan to head out, and the salt-water swimming pool was absolutely stunning.

Our stay was made even more superb by the Villa Manager, Jah and her team of helpers who pampered us to the max. They took good care of us and provided everything they could to make sure that our stay was pleasant. Transportation was made ready for us to whichever town we wanted to visit. Food served by the villa chef especially her Thai dishes was delicious, we had most of our meals in the villa and we did not find ourselves missing out on anything. Jah was so accommodating to our every request that it made our trip really special.

The only let down for us was that the villa was on a hill slope and therefore no beachfront access, we had to take about 5-10 minutes’ walk down the slope to reach the beach and it was not really a swimmable beach. But our beach crave was gratified by a short drive to Chaweng Beach Monkey Bay, thanks to recommendation by Jah, which turned out to be one of the best beaches we have ever been. Villa Sangkachai is definitely the place to be if you are looking for the ultimate luxurious vacation with the best service you can ever get.
