Tawantok Beach Villas – Villa 1
The villa you chose is no longer available for rental from us but we have a portfolio of Elite Havens in various locations around South East Asia for you to choose from. Alternatively feel free to send us an enquiry and it'll be our pleasure to help you find the perfect villa for your next holiday.
Soft white sand, the caress of the sun, warm, glittering blue sea dotted with islands, an opulent infinity-edge pool and a stunning villa from which to enjoy it all.
What more could a person want? Ah, tropical sunsets? Tawantok Beach Villa 1 on Lipa Noi Beach, Koh Samui, has those, too. In fact, that’s what tawantok means – “sunset”.
This wonderful Samui villa evokes the era, not long ago, when all homes in Thailand, no matter how grand, were built in timber, and craftsmanship was at a zenith.
Every room, from the stunning master suite to the lounge and dining pavilion, sits under a traditionally elegant Thai roof. The walls are mostly glass, opening up to the garden and letting in the astonishing ocean view.
The villa has five bedrooms – including a queen-bedded mezzanine above the master bedroom which makes an ideal family suite, plus four guest rooms. With extra beds, up to 14 guests can be comfortably accommodated.
On the other side of the garden is the living and dining area, with its large rustic table for communal dining and its sink-into-a-reverie sofas. And perfectly placed at one end of the pool, just steps from the sand, is a dining sala that’s always a favourite spot with guests.
The staff – villa manager, chef, housekeepers and gardeners – seem to know what you want before you realise you want it.
For more energetic guests, the villa has a beautifully maintained tennis court, a kayak and stand-up paddleboard, a beach volleyball net and goals for beach football.
Families love the villa, with children of all ages catered for. There’s the rest of Samui to explore – if you can ever tear yourself away from this delightful Lipa Noi beach villa.

Rates and availability
Tawantok Beach Villa 1 is an absolute beachfront villa on Koh Samui's loveliest yet quietest beach, Lipa Noi. This Samui villa looks out west across the Gulf of Siam, with a huge ocean view dotted with islands. It is six minutes from the nearest town, Nathon (good for easy, basic shopping) and 50 minutes from Chaweng, the island’s nexus for shopping, dining and nightlife. Lipa Noi is 50 minutes drive from Koh Samui airport, while the jetty for the mainland car ferry is 13 minutes away.More information for Things to do
Koh Samui is not a big island – it’s just under 230 square kilometres, and much of that is still pristine forest-covered hillside – but it offers a wealth of fun and interesting things to do. Let your villa manager know what sort of activities you’re interested in and he or she will help guide your choices and can also arrange transport to take you there.
In the meantime, to whet your appetite, here are some suggestions.
- Dusit Deva Cultural Centre is a slightly eccentric garden filled with creatures from Buddhist and Hindu myths. Kids will love it.
- Koh Samui has two golf courses; Santiburi (18 holes and really distracting ocean views), and Bophut Hills (nine holes).
- Treat the family to Sunday Brunch by the pool at the internationally famed Nikki Beach Club, just a few minutes away along the beach.
- Visit nearby Nathon Walking Street Night Market on Thursdays or the bigger Fisherman’s Village Night Market in Bophut on Fridays.
- Go island hopping! The Ang Thong National Marine Park encompasses a cluster of islands – the ones you can see from Tawantok Beach Villas. The heavily jungled islands are carefully controlled to keep them in pristine natural condition. A trip to them is a must.
- There’s a kite surfing school on the beach at Nathon where you can rent a rig or learn how to do it.
- Regular Thai boxing tournaments are staged at the largest stadium on the island, the Petch Buncha near Chaweng. These are not tourist demo fights; they are the real thing.
- Samui has a number of spectacular waterfalls. We would recommend starting with the Namuang Falls. Take your bathing costume; there’s a very inviting pool at the base of the falls.
- Have an adventure atop Khao Pom mountain on ATVs or the zipline, or just gaze out at the scenery below from the viewpoint.

Tawantok Beach Villas’ chef is on hand throughout your stay to prepare breakfast, lunch and dinner. The villa has an extensive menu of home-cooked dishes to choose from, ranging from Thai and other Asia cuisines to Western favourites, as well as children’s specials and vegetarian choices. Or, off-menu, the chef is always happy to cook up special requests.
Fish is bought from local fishermen who land their catches on the beach nearby, so it’s always super-fresh. And do try the villas’ signature Thai dish, Yam Som O (a pomelo-and-prawn salad). It’s really refreshing and very special.
Daily breakfast is included in the villa’s daily rate. Drinks, along with groceries for the other meals, are charged at market price plus a 20% handling fee and a government tax, with a minimum shopping fee of THB 750. Staff will do the shopping and provide receipts for reference. To ensure this can be done in a timely manner, we advise you to plan your meals the evening before.View a sample menu
