When you visit Koh Samui, you can pick from a wide array of accommodations. There are commercial hotels and resorts, budget friendly lodgings, wellness retreats, apartments, and of course private luxury villas for rent. More and more savvy travellers are now ditching commercial holiday accommodations in favor of private rentals and luxurious villas are now more popular than ever. Here are some reasons why Koh Samui guests love to splurge on luxury vacation homes.

Top Notch Ambience

Upscale holiday rentals are unsurpassed in terms of ambience. You really get what you pay for. If a vacation home that was created to impress—from it’s architecture, to its location, to its views and furnishings—is what you want, luxury Koh Samui villas are your best options. They are all over the island and whether you are after the views or the fine interiors you will be able to find exactly what you are looking for. Luxury Koh Samui properties for rent cater to a specific market, usually people with really refined tastes and preferences. With this in mind, the developers and the owners go out of their way to make sure that their chosen clientele is satisfied.

Enormous Space

Huge and comfortable living spaces are also one of the things you can look forward to when you stay at a private luxury villa in Koh Samui. Commercial resorts, even the upscale ones, can only give a certain amount of space for nearly the same price.Imagine living in a holiday nest with a huge garden, multiple living areas, many bedrooms, and most of all spacious baths complete with a rain bath and Jacuzzi tub, now that’s pure bliss.

Private Swimming Pools

The warm tropical weather will make you want to take a dip in the water all the time. If you want to be able to swim anytime you want, a private swimming pool with a relaxing scenery should be something to look for when looking for a place to stay in Samui. Some guests will want to  swim at the beach and opt for a beachfront accommodation. But a swimming pool has an advantage—you can swim day or night. Rain or shine. If you stay at a commercial resort, you will have to share the pool with strangers. At a luxury vacation home the swimming pool is all yours.

Fab Interiors

Aesthetics is a strong selling point of local holiday rentals. Guests will feel more at ease in gorgeous surroundings and this is something property owners are aware of. Because of this, they do everything in order to ensure that every corner of the place looks fabulous. From impressive layouts, to top notch design materials, to imported furnishings and accents, the owners are willing to spend for the look of the property they have for rent especially if their market base are the splurge types.

Superb Privacy and Reliable Security

Nothing can beat the privacy offered by private luxury home rentals on the island. These grand properties are often stand alone and are gated to keep the outsiders away. Also since they are separated from the rest of the neighborhood and are often set at prime spots, you can be sure that no one will intrude on your peace or your event if you will be having one at your place. Optimum privacy allows you and your group to feel more relaxed and at ease. Plus, since you won’t see people you don’t know right in your hallway, there’s a feeling of home that dominates the place. This will make your stay a whole lot better.

Comfortable Bedrooms and Baths

Massive bedrooms that are styled and prepped to perfection will be waiting for you when you arrive. King size beds, fine linens and sheets, beautiful bedside decor, and tranquil views are only some of the things you can expect from Samui upscale residences. In addition, most of these have ensuite baths, with state of the art bathroom fixtures and complimentary toiletries and shower essentials.

Impressive Amenities

The amenities provided by the finest local villas can rival anything offered by a  commercial accommodation and even top it. Beautiful libraries, contemporary kitchen and dining facilities, wine cellar, gaming consoles, sports facilities, and state of the art entertainment units are only the tip of the iceberg for many lavish properties for rent.

Multiple Lounge Areas

Stylish lounge areas that can match those that 5 star hotels have can also be expected from the best Koh Samui houses for rent. Rare works of art, artisan furnishings, and carefully selected decor will wow you and please your high standards when it comes to aesthetics. Also when you are planning an event at your holiday home, multiple lounge areas where guests can relax and catch up are a must. Luckily most luxury accommodations have plenty of indoor and outdoor lounges to suit your needs.

Dedicated Staff

Almost all  Samui holiday residences for rent have their own dedicated staff. These people will ensure that any concern you may have are taken care of so you can just focus on having a great time and let the caretakers address your needs.

Knockout Scenery

Whether you set your eyes on a traditional hilltop mansion, a contemporary multi-level villa with panoramic views, or a huge eclectic bungalow right at the shoreline,for sure you will be amazed by the lovely setting and the naturally stunning tropical scenery which you can enjoy all throughout your stay. Picture windows and an open design that lifts the boundary between indoor and outdoor areas are often used in local villas to emphasize the beauty of the location in the best way possible.

Good Food

Food is a highlight of every holiday. If you prefer to make your own meals, you can take advantage of the fully equipped kitchen. Or if you want to take a break from household tasks for a while, you can ask for the services of a private chef which most holiday rentals have anyway.
