Ann, and her husband, Peter fell in love with Koh Samui after holidaying there and decided to make it their home. They put their passion for property and love of the beach life together to create their dream beach house. Having travelled extensively, they themselves have a keen sense of service and high expectations of accommodation which they see as integral to what Five Islands villa offers their guests.
The villa is built from teak, in keeping with an authentic style Thai house. It was designed with amazing attention to detail and houses a multitude of treasures and artefacts collected from around Thailand. Staying at the Five Islands villa offers a true Thai experience, from the décor to the surroundings and the famous Thai hospitality.
We make sure our guests feel welcome, are comfortable, and have all their needs met. We would like them to share our love of the villa’s beautiful post card perfect surroundings. We hope they enjoy the fabulous outdoor spaces, the views and our selection of Thai artefacts. It’s a haven of rest and relaxation where we hope guests would pull up a chair, open a bottle of wine and contemplate how good life is!
Koh Samui is beautiful every time of the year but I particularly like the months of May and June. The island is less busy as the children are still at school and European holidays haven’t started. The weather is hot and mostly dry so it’s perfect for enjoying the quiet beaches.
I have two favourite spots. My absolute favourite place is our private beach where I love looking out to sea, across to the mainland, when the sun is setting. In Taling Ngam you get the most amazing sunsets. The other place is the view from the bedroom pavilion which overlooks the pool. This is where I like to sleep as it’s delightful to wake up to the glistening blue pool surrounded by the tropical gardens.
Crystal Bay on Chaweng Noi beach is one of my favourites. It serves Thai and international cuisine and has a large wooden deck for dining overlooking the bay. The Jungle Club, high up above Chaweng Noi, is a great spot for lunch with amazing views over the east coast. Closer to home is The Island View Restaurant, with tables and chairs set up right on the beach, is a lovely spot to relax and enjoy great seafood. The Hotel Intercontinental has a great roof top bar serving amazing cocktails and Nikki Beach is the party place with large sunbeds arranged around the pool and good tunes for al fresco dancing.
