Pure luxury....

My wife and I stayed here for 4 nights, on our way back from our 3 week honeymoon in Australia. Working as a rental agent in the U.K, I was extremely impressed with the attention to detail by the local managing agents to make this feel like home from home. The set up on arrival was A1, very clean, and the photos on all counts depicted the real thing perfectly, if anything the villa was even better than the photos suggested. Superb and unique swimming pool, which has a kids section too, lovely gardens with a lake view. Very tranquil! It was a real pleasure to stay, albeit too briefly, as this does not feel like a typical rental unit. It is primarily a family home with lots of lovely personal touches, family photos, extensive library and a lot of DVD's, all for our use. The kitchen too is very well equipped if you like to cook, although I have to admit, we ate out every evening! There are many local eateries and we found them all really nice and great value for money but I can particularly recommend Salathai in Chaweng main street and a beach front restaurant in Fisherman's Village, Bo Phut but I can't remember the name (just past Starfish & Coffee). I would certainly return again, for longer next time and would highly recommend this accommodation to friends and family. Just a note, you do need a car or scooter (everyone uses them) if you wish to explore as it is not on the main road. Car hire was all arranged for us by the owner though at the time of booking and very inexpensive. The car was a real bonus and although the nearest beach was only a few minutes drive away it enabled us to explore the entire island visiting other beaches, elephant safari, the monks at Big Buddha and Nikki Beach resort. One final tip - Maenam Walking Street on a Thursday evening is a must. Make sure you encompass a Thursday evening (or two!) within your stay so that you can enjoy this very interesting Thai experience.

Stunning accomodation set in a beautiful peaceful location.

We couldn't beleive how lucky we were when we arrived at the villa Rim Bueng in Samran Gardens. The house was totally amazing, and standards were first class. It was like walking onto a glossy brochure for real, the photos were spot on. The setting was so tranquil, amazing range of tropical birds in the morning and a gentle breeze through the palm trees in the gardens. We fell in love with the place instantly. Stuart & Aa were lovely and it was just nice to have a British owner/Manager who had extremely high standards. I love to work out and It even had a fully equipped Multi Gym and Sauna :) We will definatly be visiting again, it was perfect. :)

Luxury and service at great prices. we will be back

The villa was amazing with everything you need and more. The kitchen is fitted with everything you will possible need. The bedrooms and living rooms are huge and they have full cable tv on a flatscreen. The pool is huge and we spent most mornings and late afternoons swimming around. The villa has a very large grass area for the kids to run around as well as a pond. The house is full of books and dvds which you can use. The villa is around 2km from the beach so a scooter or car is necessary. I shopped around a lot for a villa and found this villa to be the best value for luxury you can find even after you add the car hire costs. The villa is in a quite gated area. The service from Stuart the property manager for samran gardens and owner of bin rim reung was sensational. The recommendations for food and activities were all spot on. Any issues or questions were handled professionally and promptly. The service was so good I would not hesitate to rent any of the samran gardens villas. Stuart is even going to the extent of mailing some of toys sold at the local night market to my kids. We will definitely be back.

FANTASTIC

We stayed in the Baan Rim Bueng villa with our boys for two weeks. The villa, private swimming pool and extensive gardens are absolutely beautiful. Stuart who manages the Samran Gardens went above and beyond to make our holiday really enjoyable, this included being collected from the airport, food in the fridge (as we arrived late at night), arranging a hire car, booking a deep sea fishing trip, etc., etc., nothing is too much trouble. Another bonus is the well equipped gym which both our boys made good use of. As soon as we walked into the villa it felt like a home away from home, everything is included. We have already booked for next year.

Brilliant

My wife and I had a really excellent stay in Baan Rim Bueng with our daughter and her 2 young children. The villa was perfect - the children loved the pool which is on the veranda : the living space is large, well equipped and well maintained : the 3 bedrooms are also large with plenty of storage space. So well furnished it really did feel like a home from home. And as for Stuart there really was nothing he wouldn't sort out - from car hire to arranging transfers and getting in pizzas for our first night. The location is idyllic - water buffalo in the field next door - which does mean a car is pretty much essential to drive into town for provisions and visit the many local restaurants. For us that was no problem anyway as we explored the island.and took the children to the farm park, the water park, and of course various beaches. We will be back.

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.
