“Excellent much needed place to relax and celebrate my 50th!”
Reviewed 20 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

Managed to secure a short last minute stay at The View for my 50th Birthday and was joined by my two adult children and two of their friends. It was probably a little too large for just 6 adults but the villa is superb and we had a very relaxed and special time there! The staff were exceptional and I have to say that Takkie has the happiest disposition and nothing is too much trouble... The Chef cooked us some excellent meals with the highlight being the BBQ with lobster tails. Way too much food but all really delicious. We also really appreciated that the staff were discreet and let us relax and enjoy the villa, but were available if needed. Have to rate the beds and the bedding as probably the most comfortable ever!!! Really amazing pillows (in fact would appreciate knowing where to get these?). Excellent weekend away and a very special place to spend my 50th birthday.

We stayed at The View, where we had our daughters wedding, my son in law found it on the web site and just knew that was where he wanted to marry his bride. When we arrived you think you are dreaming, then you realise WOW. And the WOW continued for the whole stay. The wedding was arranged and all went fantastic, reception on the private beach, fireworks, lanterns, flowers, music. We had a Thai wedding meal which was spectacular, the next day the flowers were all in glass bowls on the dining table for us all to enjoy. The staff are wonderful, they catered for everyone, even bringing a travel cot down by the pool for our grandson.

“Best Place to stay in Koh Samui”
Reviewed 1 December 2012 for a stay in August 2012

Not only did we love the property but the staff was incredible! Anytime we needed something someone was there to assist us. It truly was a vacation we will never forget. The rooms are beautiful, the food was amazing, the pool was perfect, the music was great and the location was to die for! Watching the sunset every night from the pool or the beach was remarkable. We spent 9 nights at this property and would suggest to anyone planning a trip to Koh Samui to stay at this Villa as you will truly never regret your decision and like us you'll be trying to figure out how and when you could come back!!! Thank-you to Opal and all of the staff! You made for a great holiday experience.

“Awesome!”
Reviewed 15 October 2012 for a stay in October 2012

We stayed at the View with friends for 8 nights late September through to early October. There were 9 adults and 10 children aged from 8 months to 11 years. From the moment we were picked up at the airport, our experience at the villa could not have been better. The purpose of the trip was to celebrate the 40th birthdays for 6 of the adults throughout the year. We are all school friends and had talked about celebrating the occasion for many years.

The villa itself is perfect. There are 5 bedrooms plus the dormitory that sleeps up to 8 children on 3 bunk and 2 pull out beds. There is a large kitchen area and lounge area inside the main house and another outdoor lounge area and bar next to the pool on the ground floor. The frozen margaritas were a great way to start each evening. (actually start each afternoon is probably more accurate.) There was thousands of songs to choose from on itunes which could all be played throughout the villas stereo system as well as hundreds of movies.

We also booked one of the villas behind the view and it was literally 30 metres away and directly connected to the main house.

We were able to arrange nannies to stay with us for the duration and they slept in the twin room which adjoined the children's room. The location of the dorm was far enough away that once the children went to bed, we would not disturb them in any way. They had the best time hanging out with each other and after full days of activities in the pool, on the beach and jumping off the pier they were ready to go straight to sleep.

The staff and service were amazing. Khun Opal and Khun Nokkie were our main contacts however all of the staff were lovely. They took care of all our needs and nothing was ever too much trouble. The food was so good that we didn't leave the villa once for dinner and only went out one day for lunch the entire 8 days/nights we were there. Breakfast was great and for lunch we chose to have sandwiches and salads which was perfect. The chef was an expert in Thai, Italian and Japanese cuisine so we were able to change the menu each night to whatever we wanted. There is an extensive menu to choose from or if you had anything in mind it would be prepared perfectly. This might sound like an expensive way to do things but it was actually the opposite. The staff would purchase all of the required items and ingredients and we would only be charged the purchase price plus a nominal amount to cover the associated costs and preparation.

As far as the location, it really has one of the most outstanding views anywhere. For 8 nights we were treated to a different sunset each night as the cloud formations would always differ allowing different amounts of light through. We were very fortunate to have no rain the entire time we were there. On the last night we arranged to get some "Kom Loy" which are the floating paper lanterns and we released them from the beach. A great memory for both the adults and the children.

I cannot reccomend this place highly enough. I found the View online by searching for places that can sleep up to 20 people. There is no better set up for families with younger children than the View. We loved it so much, all of us have already agreed to return in 2014 and stay even longer.

Thanks to everyone at the View for making our birthday celebration holiday so memorable.
