The Location

The Locale

The island’s tropical beachside beauty is at its stunning best at Bang Po Beach in Mae Nam, 15km from the airport, in north-west Samui. Villa Chi Samui is located right on the postcard-worthy white sand beach, fringed by swaying coconut palms, with the clear sapphire blue sea lapping lazily at the shore.

Thanks to the area’s growing popularity, rustic beachside restaurants and bars, as well as several new trendy beach clubs, are just a short stroll down the beach. For more sophisticated entertainment, the exclusive Four Seasons Resort and Spa is merely 4km away at Laem Yai Bay while Fisherman’s Village is great for shopping and delicious food.

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:

Villa Chi Samui at Lotus Samui - Things to do 1
  1. The bustling seaport of Nathon, where car and passenger ferries sail between the island and the mainland has its own charm and appeal for visitors. Its narrow streets offer a profusion of colourful clothing boutiques, local arts and craft stores, and souvenir shops. The town also boasts its own Chinatown where old Chinese shophouses bear witness to the town’s history as a strategic trading port and which now sell an eclectic range of bric-a-brac. Dining at one of the waterfront seafood restaurants, you can experience a taste of authentic spicy, local cuisine, while the weekly ‘walking street market’ has become an attraction with innumerable vendors selling local and international delicacies and goods.
  2. 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 to 180 meters 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, making it an oasis of pure golfing pleasure.
  1. Friday is the Night Market at Fisherman’s Village, just 8km away from your villa. On Friday evenings, the village explodes into a riot of colour and activity as vendors from all over the island set up stalls selling everything from Thai and international street food, to chic fashion accessories, electronics, local souvenirs and much more. And don’t miss the fire-eating entertainment on the beach in front of Coco Tam.
  2. Sports and adventure enthusiasts will be amazed by the variety of adrenaline-filled activities available in Samui. From kitesurfing 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, the options are plenty.
  3. Samui has a number of spectacular waterfalls, of which nearby Na Muang is considered the most picturesque. The name Na Muang refers to the massive purple rocks at the waterfalls. Rocks and tree roots form a natural staircase that leads to the base of Na Muang 1. A large natural pool sits under the waterfall, so don’t forget your swimsuit. A 10 minute hike further up the mountain leads to Samui’s most beautiful waterfall, Na Muang 2.

  1. Treat your family or friends to a relaxed Sunday Brunch at one of the most popular venues around the island. Graze the fabulous buffet, lounge by the pool and listen to cool jazz at the internationally renowned Nikki Beach Club at Lipa Noi, or check-out the new Chi Beach Club in Bang Rak, this is a great way to spend a lazy Sunday in Samui with something delicious guaranteed to please everyone.
  2. This pristine archipelago of Angthong National Marine Park comprises 42 islands in the Gulf of Thailand, merely 28km from Koh Samui. This is the place to go island hopping with your snorkel. Here towering limestone mountains, thick jungle, white sand beaches, fertile mangroves, waterfalls and soaring cliffs, hidden caves and lakes are just waiting to be explored. Within sight of Koh Samui, Angthong is a protected area of more than 100km2 of land and sea, and home to a rich variety of exotic wildlife and sea treasures. Day tours of the islands include lunch, refreshments and supervised snorkelling and kayaking excursions.

    I have stayed in Villa Chi several times. We have traveled to Samui a number of times. It is one of our favorite islands to visit. Villa Chi is our favorite holiday home. The villa is right on a beautiful beach. Two pools give you the option of swimming in the ocean or in a pool. The view from the patio out across the pool area on to the beach is magnificent. We spent a good bit of our time on the verandah reading, having sunset drinks, and dining on excellent Thai food. The housekeeper/cook is superb and looked after us in a grand style. The interiors of the living room and bedrooms are beautifully appointed. Cleanliness was second to none. The kitchen facilities with its ice machines, wine cooler and bar, and dining area were amazing. The location on the popular North Shore was absolutely perfect. I cannot recommend this place highly enough.

    I have stayed several times at Villa Chi for a duration of about 3 to 4 days each time. We keep returning because our stay there with my husband was so delightful on many levels. The villa and its location are spectacular! Tastefully appointed. Best amenities ever. Attention to every details was irreproachable! The staff were very nice and polite and discrete. We loved our breakfast on the terrace over looking the sea and enjoying the cool breeze. What a way to start our day! I loved so much walking on the beach at sunset. Swimming in the privacy in our pool. The little spa with its professional massage were a real treat. The Thai cook is truly a pearl and her cooking is delicious. I cannot recommend enough Villa Chi to anyone looking for their own little piece of paradise! This place is ideal for friends or family that want to reconnect and share a very special experience together.

    Villa Chi is a gem! It’s surrounded by lush tropical gardens and fronts onto a quiet beach which is perfect for a stroll and a dip in the warm and calm waters. We took full advantage of the many amenities at the Villa. We enjoyed massages in the spa, swims in the private lap pool and indulged in blissful relaxation in the comfort of the patio. Dinners were delicious and beautifully presented making each evening special. A big thank you to the gracious staff!

    It is a very beautiful villa resort near the sea. The villa is big and comfortable. The staff is very helpful and nice. They even gave us a beautiful birthday cake for our daughter for free. We had a wonderful time!

    The resort and villas are simply beautiful and luxurious! It is a paradise set on a clean and pretty much private beach. We stayed in a villa which had a master bedroom and four other double rooms. There was a spacious kitchen and dining area, a separate spacious area for the lounge and another outside lounge area. All of this was built alongside a private lap pool equipped with a jacuzzi. The staff were attentive and the chef cooked up amazing meals.

    It was perfect, the privacy, peace and gorgeous presence of the staff made it perfect for us and really made us feel like kings and queens and at the same time, feeling part of a gorgeous Thai family. It truly was the trip of a lifetime which will remain in our hearts for the rest of our lives. From the staff who became like family, to the spectacular food, service, to the opportunity, to the location, and to the happiness we all feel when we think of the magical trip. This experience truly went above and beyond and I stepped away crying I was so sad to leave. I cannot recommend this enough, whether you are looking for a private get away for 2, family holiday, friends get-together or a perfect intimate wedding venue, this is the place.

    I must say we struggled to re-adjust to normal life after our stay here! We were lucky enough to stay in the villa, which was magnificent. A massive main bedroom, with all the facilities you need, a separate living room and the kitchen was very well appointed. We had our own private paddle pool for toddlers (my baby was nine months old at the time of writing this) and a private pool for adults too, the shared pool was massive and sits right next to a secluded beach. Our private chef cooked breakfast, and dinners (we did not want to go out for dinner as the baby sleeps early) and we over-indulged on Thai food. It was so good! I was a big fan of the Pad Thai and my wife loved the fish. The chef even helped with the baby's food, and the fresh fruit (I am obsessed with mangoes) was amazing! We have stayed in a few villas in our time, but this one really tops the lot. The service is warm and friendly (they loved our baby) and the facilities are more than you could ever need.
