For a truly spectacular Koh Samui experience, far from the madding beach crowds, head for the cool hills above the popular resort of Bophut to your own private villa retreat at Suralai.

Set in its own peaceful, landscaped grounds, on the north-east coast, 15 minutes from the airport, this impressive 6-bedroom, stand-alone villa will have you captivated from the moment you arrive.

As you’re escorted through the main living pavilion onto the terrace, the view of a 25-metre infinity pool and the panorama of Bophut Bay and the islands beyond will literally take your breath away.

This sense of celebrity lifestyle, just as you imagine it, doesn’t stop here! Your bedroom with its own private terrace offers the same stunning vistas.  The highlight of this magnificent villa is the living and dining pavilion, sitting majestically above it all – a striking architectural statement with its soaring cathedral ceiling and pitched roof.

This is the social hub of the villa, where breakfast and dinners are served against a landscape of lush green mountains, and where the evening begins with cocktails and conversation overlooking the twilight views.

By day, a Thai-style sala beside the pool is the place for casual lunches, lounging, reading a book or enjoying a sublime massage in the shade on wide comfortable cushions.

Catering for every carefree whim, Suralai’s domestic team of four, including your villa manager and resident chef, are at hand to ensure you experience the best that this delightful island has to offer, from shopping and dining out to excursions, boat trips, golf and sightseeing.

Suralai is as perfect for family holidays as it is for groups of friends celebrating a special event, or hosting a once-in-a-lifetime occasion, such as a wedding. Whatever your reasons, this is a show-stopping retreat that never fails to enchant those who have the good fortune to experience it.

    Oh what magical hilltop views!

Located high in the lush green hills above Samui's popular Bophut resort area, Suralai is just 6km from Samui's international airport and 7km from the beautiful, palm-fringed, sandy beaches of the island's main tourist centre, Chaweng and Chaweng Noi.

Thanks to its elevation, the villa enjoys spectacular views of the island’s north-east coastline and the Gulf of Siam all the way to offshore islands such as Koh Phangan (popularly known as 'Full Moon Island'), as well as of the island's striking mountainous interior with coconut palm-clad slopes, natural rainforests and dramatic waterfalls.

Circumnavigating Koh Samui by car takes just over an hour, so nothing is very far away. The key jumping off point for boat trips and excursions to many off-shore islands is a merely 6km away at Big Buddha.

Highly accessible and convenient, Suralai is always a peaceful sanctuary away from all the noise and activity, waiting to envelop you in luxury.

Things to do

Although Koh Samui is renowned for its palm fringed beaches and crystal blue seas, the island has much to offer visitors of all ages. Whether on a family holiday with little ones or teenagers, a group of friends looking for shared experiences, or those seeking the action of the island’s beach clubs and nightlife, Samui has something for you.

Your villa manager can make all the necessary arrangements for you to enjoy your chosen pursuits. Here are some suggestions:

  • Fisherman’s Village & Night Market | Friday is the ‘Night Market’ at Fisherman’s Village, just 3km from your villa. Along the charming narrow beach road, traditional Thai wooden houses transform into chic boutique stores, trendy restaurants and bars. On Friday evenings, the village explodes into a riot of colour and activity as vendors from all over the island set up shop selling everything from Thai and international street food, to chic fashion, electronics, local souvenirs and much more. And don’t miss the fire-eating entertainment on the beach in front of Coco Tam.
  • Luxury Island Cruising | Charter a luxury 13m catamaran for the day and sail out to the glorious coconut-palm-covered island of Koh Phangan for a sublime day of swimming, snorkelling and exploring its beautiful, untouched beaches. Pull in for lunch at one of several beachside restaurants or pack a luxury picnic and choose your anchorage for a taste of unspoiled paradise. 
  • A Day at the Beach | Spend a day with your toes in the sand at one of the island’s many beautiful sandy beaches. Just nearby are the bays of Bophut, Big Buddha, Chaweng and Choeng Mon, all with a variety of beachside facilities and restaurants. Further afield, the deserted palm-fringed beaches at Bang Po and Laem Nai on the north-west coast are a popular spot for their rustic beachfront restaurants and stunning views of Ang Thong and Koh Phangan islands.
  • Meet Samui's Gentle Giants at Elephant Haven | Minutes away from Suralai is one of Samui’s leading ethical elephant sanctuaries, Elephant Haven. Home to 18 magnificent Asian elephants and their offspring, Elephant Haven offers visitors a wonderful up-close-and-personal experience with these extraordinary, gentle giants in a safe and natural environment. The sanctuary offers tours hosted by professional, informative and empathetic guides. Visitors are invited to feed the elephants, follow them around the sanctuary as the young ones play and frolic in water pools, and observe them in their natural habitat. For more information, see:
  • A Unique Thai Cooking Experience in the Heart of the Jungle  | Samui’s celebrated jungle cooking school, Tamarind Tree, offers an authentic and thoroughly enjoyable Thai cooking experience. High up in the island’s lush green mountains, Tamarind Tree invites guests into its organic gardens to gather exotic ingredients for the dishes they will prepare, using tools and techniques unchanged from the traditional methods used for centuries. Thereafter, you get to enjoy your culinary handiwork accompanied by singing cicadas and the greenery of the jungle. Tamarind Tree offers half-day classes as well as private classes. For prices and information:
  • World-class Golfing in Samui | Santiburi Samui Country Club is one of the most beautiful golf courses in Asia and the island’s only championship 18-hole, par-72 golf course.  Stretching along the hills of the northern coastline with spectacular elevations from 25 - 180meters above sea level, it is often called a ‘slice of heaven’. This challenging course is surrounded by natural rainforest and coconut-palm plantations, with distracting views of the mountains and ocean at every turn, which makes it an oasis of pure golfing pleasure.
  • Samui’s Spirit of Adventure | Sports and adventure enthusiasts of all ages will be thrilled by the variety of action activities available on Samui. Choose from kite surfing at Nathon, off-road safaris on three and four-wheeled ATVs or 4WDs, bungee jumping, zip-lining through the rainforest, canopy walks and waterfall hikes to Muay Thai boxing tournaments and high-speed go-karts to name a few.
  • Tour the Island’s Temples and Waterfalls | Take a tour of this beautiful island to see the waterfalls and temples. Nearby is Samui’s most iconic landmark, the golden Big Buddha and its impressive neighbour, Plai Laem Wat. Further south in Lamai, visit the enigmatic ‘Mummy Monk’ at Wat Khunaram the island’s most famous mummified monk, and nearby Wat Sila Ngu or Red temple.  Then head home through the mountains via stunning waterfalls, magnificent scenery and aerial views of the island.
