When it comes to personal customisation, the exclusive and discrete luxury villa estate of Samujana, Koh Samui, is at the top of its game.
Each one of Samujana’s private villas has its own unique mix of amenities and stunning views.
With its sandy beaches and stunning coral reefs, Koh Samui is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Thailand. Located off the east coast of the Kra Isthmus, Thailand, Koh Samui is only about a 100-minute flight from Singapore, making it the perfect destination for a quick getaway.
On the north-eastern coast of Koh Samui, in a prestigious hilltop location, is one of the island’s most exclusive and discrete luxury villa estates: Samujana. A few minutes’ drive from the airport, the property is within walking distance of the stunning beaches of Choeng Mon and Chaweng.
The boutique luxury estate offers a selection of villas of different sizes, ranging from three to eight bedrooms, each boasting uninterrupted sea views. The newly launched Villa 30 — where I had the good fortune to stay — is certainly one of the best.
Situated at the very top of the estate, Villa 30 is known as the jewel in the crown of Samujana as it offers a spectacular 360-degree sea view. It features five spacious en suite bedrooms each with its own view of the sea. Other facilities include a cinema and a private gym.
Thanks to the floor-to-ceiling windows and glass panels, there is sufficient natural light in every room. It is the sort of view that would inspire one to get up at the crack of dawn just to catch the beautiful sunrise, followed by a refreshing swim in the infinity-edge pool.
Food and refreshment-wise, the villa doesn’t disappoint. A full service bar is on-hand and the villa is equipped with two kitchens and a rooftop barbeque deck. Guests can choose between meals prepared by the estate’s private chefs or choose to cook the meals themselves (the villa’s team can take care of the shopping list or take you to the local market to source ingredients for yourself).
As an added bonus, the estate can also arrange for top chefs from other resorts or restaurants on the island to provide a truly unique dining experience. It even has its own catamaran available for charter and smaller speedboats to facilitate water sports or picnics on secret beaches.
And therein lies the beauty of Samujana. When it comes to personal customisation, the estate is at the top of its game. From facilitating top chefs and private dinners, to private Muay Thai classes and yoga sessions by the beach or simply a pampering spa therapy, the team at Samujana is able to work its magic.
The estate is available for hire or for purchase, making it the perfect weekend getaway for people from the region, but one thing’s for sure: getting there is easy, the challenge is in leaving that good life all behind.
