We have purposefully removed as many
distractions as possible. So that you can enjoy the
serenity of your home unencumbered by distractions of
"normal" life, the villas have no TV, video, radio or
daily newspaper. We provide a selection of music for
your pleasure, and you are welcome to bring your own
CDs. There's no swimming pool on the property, but we're
only 200 metres from a quiet sun bathing beach and a
20-minute walk from a lovely swimming beach.
If you need your own transportation, we'll gladly assist
you in renting a car, jeep or motorbike.
Our day spa
Tamarind Springs has a small cafe with
a selection of light foods like soups,
salads and pasta. The cafe if open
from noon to 7pm.
We have no restaurant
on the villa property, but several
are within walking distance.
Samui offers an abundant
choice of restaurants and cafes serving
both Thai and international cuisine.
We'd be happy to give
you some advice according to your preferences.
A healthy wholesome breakfast
is included in our rates and brought
to your villa every morning.

sometimes nature accepts the invitation. This arrangement gives you an
opportunity to view many fascinating tropical species close up. The majority
are entirely harmless, and most of our guests consider the ants, lizards,
spiders and geckos an appealing feature of their stay. For many city folk,

don't normally accept bookings for less than five
nights (and seven nights in peak season). The reason
is that our houses are all so different, and we are
not like an ordinary hotel that can simply substitute
Room A for Room B. We encourage people to come and
relax, and unwind, and don't believe that a short
stay will be restful or beneficial.
if you are not able to stay for the minimum required,
let us know and we will try to accommodate you in

The average annual temperature in Samui is
around a comfortable 30 degrees centigrade in the daytime,
from season to season. During the rainy (low) season, it
cools down to about 28 degrees during the day and is much cooler
at night. For a short time in April and
May we might even see 34 degrees. We have built all our houses
using largely natural materials, with lots of wood, and taken
advantage of the prevailing winds so that air-conditioning
is not necessary. All the houses have effective ceiling fans.
