gorgeous villa

A fantastic open plan villa with bi fold doors all round giving the feeling of outside and inside space. Wifi, office ( or 4th bedroom ). Lovely big garden for the children to play and a well stocked kitchen. It made a very happy, secure family home for nearly a month on a well managed development and friendly, supporting office team even arranging boat trips, car hire, food pack etc. only slight drawback is the pool was a tad small for laps and quite deep but this did not hinder us in anyway. Great location, 10 mins from main road. Would we go back???... Yes, so relaxing and comfortable.

Excellent villa to stay with young family

We are having a wonderful holiday at Baan Flora, Samran Gardens in Mae nam Koh Samui. The villa itself is well kept and very comfortable. We are a family of 6 with 4 small children and this villa offers everything that we need. It has 2 large master bedrooms a smaller guest room with queen sized bed and office / fourth bedroom where cots can be placed. The kitchen is extremely well stocked with oven, microwave, gas hob, fridge freezer, juicer, food blender etc etc. The villa caters brilliantly to little ones including cots, baby high chair, pool toys, kids toilet seat and even a potty! The kids have loved playing in the pool and the beautifully kept garden which is plenty big enough for football and frisbee! When we fancied venturing to the beach the gorgeous quiet sandy Mae nam beach lined with restaurants is just a 5 minute drive from the house. The villa is set in a stunning gated community which is run superbly by the onsite management team who are English and Thai. They will happily organise day trips with the local adventure, snorkeling, diving and boat chartering companies and are on hand to help with any other enquiries. An added bonus is being so close to Barracuda, Koh Samuis number one rated restaurant on trip advisor and with very good reason!

A home from home! Highly recommend

It has been a lovely holiday from the initial enquiries with Stuart and his team, they have gone above and beyond with their attentiveness. The villa had plenty of space for our family of four, plus the grandparents and brother in law. My children are 3 years old and 8 months and they catered for us with cots, small bed, high chairs etc. There was ample space for the whole family, each having a bathroom to themselves pretty much and the additional study room is where my 3 year old slept, so we really had 4 bedrooms. Loved the villa, the pool, the complex and the friendly staff. I would recommend renting a car however, with young children now being able to walk to far to the main road and beach, and that way you can explore the island too.

Absolut erholsame Ferien

Wir haben nun zum zweiten Mal unseren Urlaub auf Samui und in einer der Villen von SamranGarden verbracht und werden es wohl irgendwann wieder tun. Die Villa ist sehr geräumig und bittet alles was es braucht um entspannende Tage zu verbringen. In der oberen Etage gibt es ein offenes Büro, sowie ein grosses Schlafzimmer mit eigenem WC mit Dusche, sowie ein kleineres Schlafzimmer und ein zusätzliches WC mit Dusche und Whirlpool. Von den beiden Schlafzimmern aus, hat man jeweils Zugang zu einer Terrasse. In der unteren Etage sind ein weiteres grosses Schlafzimmer mit eigenem angrenzendem WC mit Dusche, eine weitere separate Dusche/WC mit Waschmaschine sowie der grosse offene Wohn- und Essbereich. Am Esstisch können gut und gerne 8 bis 10 Personen sitzen. Die Küche ist mit Ausnahme einer Geschirrwaschmaschine sehr gut ausgestattet. Der Aussenbereich ist wohl das Highlight der Villa. Der Pool ist gross genug und geschätzte 1.60m tief, 5m lang und 2.5m breit (geschätzt!!). Neben einem kleinen Pavillon mit einem Tisch für 4 Personen, bietet der äusserst grosse Garten viele Möglichkeiten (Federball, Frisbee usw.). Das Haus wird alle 4 Tage gereinigt gereinigt und die Betten neu bezogen und die Badtücher gewechselt. Im Garten wird immer wieder mal Hand angelegt, jedoch meistens während Abwesenheit der Mieter. Ebenso wird der Pool immer wieder mal gereinigt. Das ständig feuchte Klima hinterlässt zwar seine kleineren Spuren (von aussen nicht innen: leichter und nur punktueller Feuchtigkeitsschimmel). Auch kann man diverse kleinere Abnutzungen erkennen (nicht zu entfernende Kalkspuren an Duschwänden). Jedoch haben uns diese kleinen Mängel nicht gestört, da sonst sehr auf Hygiene geachtet wird. So sind die Matratzen und die Bettwäsche stets frisch und sauber und auch die Bäder sowie die Küche werden regelmässig gründlich gereinigt. Für einen Aufenthalt ist sicher ein Mietauto zu empfehlen, da es ein wenig abseits der grossen Ringstrasse liegt. Wobei hier das Management von SamranGarden einen tollen Service bietet und soweit wie möglich alles regelt, da entsprechend gute Kontakte zu den örtlichen Vermietstationen bestehen. Die Lage ist wie erwähnt ein wenig abseits von der Ringstrasse und dem Meer. Mit dem Auto gelangt man in gut 5 Minuten auf die Ringstrasse (mit den kleineren Versorgungsläden wie 7/11 u.ä.) und an den Strand von Maenam. Der Vorteil dieser Lage ist jedoch, dass es am Abend deutlich weniger Mücken hat als direkt am Meer (so haben wir es zumindest empfunden).

Beautiful villa, in lovely surroundings

Stuart, thank you so much for our stay in Koh Samui. The villa, pool and gardens are amazing, so beautifully laid out. Spacious and very well equipped kitchen, lovely comfortable beds, with beautiful bedding. Any help you require, Stuart is always on hand. The only complaint was that the jacuzzi bath was broken, really could have relaxed in that after the long flight, had to make do with a shower, which was actually very refreshing and powerful. All in all a wonderful time, thanks again Stuart.

Access to the neighboring islands

A number of piers are situated in this area running regular services to Koh Phangnan and Koh Tao. Water sports on this beach are popular thanks to the windy shore, why not try your hand at kite-surfing or windsurfing? The kite-surfing school operates from this beach.

Weather & Climate

The weather in Koh Samui generally comes in three distinct seasons: dry, hot and rainy.

Thailand is situated between the Tropic of Cancer and the Equator (slightly closer to the latter), making its climate warm and humid all year round. The humidity level is generally between 70 and 85 per cent, and the temperatures averages at around 28°C.
Located in the Gulf of Thailand, Koh Samui offers all that vacationers from cooler temperate countries could dream of regarding weather conditions. They are generally good year round, and the one thing you will rarely feel is cold. The optimum weather conditions can be enjoyed between December and August.

The Dry Season in Samui

The Dry Season in Samui runs roughly from December to February. With warm yet bearable temperatures, little rain, calm seas, and light winds.

Many consider this to be the best of the Koh Samui weather and the ideal time to choose a holiday.

The Hot Season

The hottest time of year is between March and April - a great time to visit if you can stand 30°C+ temperatures. Generally and historiacally around late April/early May, there is normally a sudden – and, for many a welcome and sudden arrival of rain. Paradoxically, from June to August is also considered a mini-high season in Samui. The weather usually follows a repeating pattern: strong daytime sunshine followed by late afternoon thunderstorms which are very welcoming.

The Rainy Season

September through to November sees the arrival of the monsoon and, therefore, the heaviest rainfall. Even at this time, it doesn’t fall every day and often only in short bursts. Koh Samui weather forecasts become increasingly unreliable as the conditions become unpredictable, with slightly rougher seas and winds. Although still great for a holiday where you intend to spend a lot of your time at the local beaches (particularly if you like your beaches less crowded) this is not the best time to come for diving and snorkeling, as visibility is reduced by around 30 per cent.

It is also worth bearing in mind that some other water related activities will be affected by rough seas and high winds.

(Please note, the weather predictions for Koh Samui are very different to those of Phuket and Krabi, which experience different seasons due to their location in the country). Do make specific enquires with your travel agent and ensure you are getting the right information, especially if you intend to partake in activities such as scuba diving, sailing, general water sports and golfing.
