Villa Maphráaw was built and furnished in late 2007 to a very high
standard. The 300sqm (internal) villa is privately owned, providing
a more personal feeling of comfort, yet is well balanced with the
blend of an open-planned fresh atmosphere to full take advantage of
the panoramic sea views it has to offer. Rarely will you find a
villa which has 5 en-suite bedrooms!!! Rent this villa and you will
have your very own small hotel!! In addition, because this villa is
brand new, it boasts amazingly low rental rates, with the aim of
maximum exposure. You will not find another 300sqm, 5 bedroom villa
(with large private pool) anywhere close to these prices in Samui!!!
Even though you may not need all the bedrooms, you know that you
a spacious private villa for practically the same price as a 3 bed
equivalent. Book now and you will still be one of the first to stay
at the villa.

The villa is naturally cooled by hill breezes and to make the most
this the upper living areas are well ventilated, surrounded by large
opening windows right across the villa, ceiling fans and cool terra-
cotta tiles underfoot; whilst the 5 beautifully designed en suite
bedrooms have built-in air conditioning units and wooden floor

To ensure you are adequately pampered and to further enjoy your
experience in the villa, the property provides a twice-weekly maid
service whilst you stay, ensuring the villa remains immaculate and
fresh linen / towels are always available. Villa Maphráaw also
offers exclusive discounts for popular restaurants and scuba diving
trips / courses. You will also be provided with a
complimentary ‘Thai’ mobile SIM card (for the duration of your stay)
to ensure that you can contact friends and family from the outset of
your holiday.

The villa is located on the North-Western side of the island and
secluded in the mountainside of beautiful Santi-Thani (with 24 hour
security) with unforgettable sea views over Samui’s neighbouring
islands. The local 'Ban Tai' beach is only 2 minutes away by car,
the closest town of Maenam only 5 minutes and just 10 minutes from
new international standard 18-hole golf course - Santiburi. The
villa is completely isolated providing you with complete privacy,
you are only a couple of minutes away from civilization. A vehicle
is recommended during your stay because of this. We can prearrange a
car for you or alternatively upon your arrival at the villa.

The villa has been carefully designed to blend into the beautiful
surrounding landscape. Its Thai Spa-like design boasts natural
colours with waterfalls either side of the main entrance, together
with a beautiful pond with further water features across the full
stretch of the villa. To the side of the villa, the Thai-styled roof
extends over the private car-park, providing a large cool, shaded
parking area, enough for 2 cars. Walkways either side of the villa
provides direct access to the landscaped gardens and swimming pool

The first floor comprises a spacious open planned living room area
featuring high beamed ceilings. The floor offers a balcony on which
to sit and enjoy the daily spectacular sunrise. There is also airy
dining room connected to the hand-crafted kitchen, which is
immaculately presented with every western convenience, making the
villa suitable for those with a taste for comfort and luxury. A home
entertainment room is featured through double doors, featuring a
large flat-screen TV (offering over 60 satellite channels), DVD and
home entertainment center, with surround sound, for those evenings
where you choose to sit back and relax with your favourite drink and
watch your preferred channels or movies.

The floor below has 2 large en suite bedrooms both with king size
beds. The master bedroom offers a home entertainment center, a walk-
in dressing room area and a magnificent en-suite bathroom with
sink, shower and bath. Both of these principal bedrooms have large
French-windows that open directly on to the pool terrace. Sandwiched
between the 2 bedrooms is a further large ensuite bedroom which
accommodates a queen-sized bed with separate dressing room and
another magnificent en-suite bathroom with double sink, shower and

A second set of stairs take you down to 2 further large private en
suite bedrooms, featuring a queen-sized bed (bed 4) and 2 single

terrace maximizing that airy feeling, much needed in beautiful

The house is U-shaped and is built partially around a 9 x 4 meter
kidney shaped infinity-edged swimming pool, ensuring extensive
privacy (please note that due to the infinity edge, supervision of
children around the pool area is necessary). The pool is 1.7 meters
at its deepest point. Within the pool there is a submerged tiled
seat which incorporates a Jacuzzi where you can sit and relax,
in the superb sea-views the villa has to offer. The pool deck offers
a dining area, sun beds and a large parasol.

Below the pool area, a further large terrace allows you to walk
around the waterfall feature which gently flows from the pool above.
This area provides another peaceful, relaxing and sunbathing area.
Here you will find access to the fully landscaped garden.

Villa Maphráaw is altogether a romantic and relaxing retreat. It is

Koh Samui is the rare gem of the Gulf of Thailand. Conserving the
idyllic simplicity of a tropical hideaway, it is mostly
characterized by its powdery white sand beaches, crystal-clear
waters and welcoming locals where you will delight yourself in a
late-day Robinson Crusoe experience in comfort.
In such an idyllic setting the temptation is simply to laze
peacefully on the beach and soak up a tropical sun tan. But if you
want more there are amenities for water sports, such as windsurfing,
kayaking, fishing, scuba diving and snorkeling. The coastal waters
are exciting to explore and are especially rich in shoals of
brightly colored fish and exotic coral formations. You even have the
opportunity to learn how to scuba dive in the comfort of the villa
itself (see scuba diving section)

The largest and most popular beaches on Samui are Chaweng, Lamai, Bo
Phut and Maenam. For those looking for a quieter place to spend
their holiday or business trip, there is another twenty or so other
beaches to choose from.

Principal among Samui's natural sights are two picturesque
waterfalls, Hin Lad and Na Muang. Island hopping is another
attraction and boats can be easily hired for trips to Koh Phangan
(the nearest and largest island next to Samui), and to the smaller
islands of Koh Tao, where beautiful bays with colorful coral
formations offer excellent conditions for snorkeling and scuba
A more adventurous full day excursion can be made to Ang Thong
National Marine Park, a group of 40 islands northwest of Samui. Here
you will see spectacular limestone formations, caves, blue lagoons
and amazingly beautiful beaches.

The local population consisting mainly of Buddhist Thai’s is very
friendly. Until the recent arrival of tourism, coconut farming and
fishing were the main sources of income. The latter are still
practiced though to a lesser extent. The fish you will eat in the
majority of restaurants originate from the surrounding Gulf of
Thailand waters
