A Stunning Piece of Paradise

We went to villa Karpe Diem as a family and it will remain an unforgettable memory for all of us. To live and enjoy the moment , that's what we were looking for. We only stayed for a few days and were really sad to leave this magical place, perched on the hills of Chaweng Noi, between the sea and the sky, with 180 degree ocean view and 2 infinity pools which gave us space and privacy. Everything was thought of for comfort and well-being in this prestigious villa, from a warm welcome to a refined interior design, a gym, spa and massage area, not to mention the deliciousThai cuisine prepared by Aoy and Met which we just couldn't get enough of! A big thank you to both of them for their attention to details and discretion. We will definitely tell our friends and family members and hope to be back next year !

Amazing Retreat, Can't Wait to Go Back...

I stayed in the villa with my husband and a group of friends for the weekend. The stay was amazing from start to finish.I arrived later than the rest of the group but this was no issue as the villa provided a number of drivers and upon my arrival there was a car waiting. The villa is only a quick 15 minutes drive from the airport. I have travelled extensively and stayed in numerous hotels and villas across Europe, US, Africa and Asia and I can safely say this was the most stunning villa I have ever stayed in. It is truly 5 star from the amenities to the service. The setting is absolutely beautiful. Its nestled in a green tropical paradise overlooking the stunning Lamai Bay. The villa certainly has the wow factor on approach. There are three floors with two infinity pools. There's also a separate section with a gym, hot tub and massage tables. There's a pool table, outside barbecue area and several eating areas both inside and outside. Our bedroom was huge and also had a an ensuite with a gorgeous stone oval bathtub looking out over the bay. We woke up to a view of the turquoise ocean from our four posted bed each morning. There were two chefs in the villa and nothing was too much trouble. We selected dishes from an extensive menu including seafood, beef, pork, chicken and vegetarian options. They cooked a variety of curries, steamed and grilled fish, traditional Thai starters, salads, western dishes and local desserts. We loved the cooking so much we ate breakfast, lunch and dinner there both days and did not leave the villa once for the whole weekend. They will also go to the shop for you and make any purchases you request. Four masseuses came to the villa also and we had massages on the balcony with a stunning view. The weather was amazing and we spend our days relaxing at the pool. We stayed there as a group of 10 and it was certainly large enough with numerous pool loungers and lots a different sections to relax in. Everything about the stay was "easy" as everything was arranged for us and no effort was required on our part. We cannot wait to return..

Absolute Paradise

We spent 2 nights at the Villa and given the choice we could have stayed there forever.. well almost. The Villa is built over two levels, perched on a hill top with amazing sea views. There are pools on both decks with a gym and jacuzzi on the property. Accomodation consists of 4 large bedrooms with complete privacy. There are no other properties overlooking the villas and we had un-interrupted sea view. The airport pickup and drops were well organised and the guest relations and staff were courteous and helpful. We initially wanted to explore the restaurants but having eaten in house, we dropped the idea completely. Aoy and Met (the house keeper and cook) treated us like royalty. We were treated to the best Thai cusine ever and they even indulged our requests for special dishes not on the menu. The menu itself is extensive. It is very unlikely that guests will eat out, once you have tasted the food here. The staff can cook up a range of starters and none of them fail to deliver. Our personal favorites were Steamed Sea Bass, Soft Shell Curry Crab, Beef Salad and the Steamed Spring rolls. Mango sticky rice for dessert is an absolute must. Overall, the experience was extremely good and I would go there again !!! You should too.. Oh and there was a Pool Table and Wifi (for those of you who want to stay connected)

Best birthday celebration ever!

I had a weekend trip in Koh Samui and it was the best relaxing time I have had, watching over the sea from the various levels of the property, it's just chillaxing every day. And blue, happily blue! Sky sea and pool! My requirements for a villa, everything clean, spacious, full of flowers, hot baths, oh the place has its own massage room too and jacuzzi on top of the 2 pools! We even get to pick massages indoor or outdoor, so posh! My friends brought some floaties and we just chill either in the pool or by the pool. Their kitchen is so stocked up I can easily find lime lemon mint etc for my various booze to go with, made me felt extra healthy when drinking. That's what a real staycations are for. I must say I loved the 2 private chef's cooking, and their effort in carving pretty garnish for every dish. We pretty much had 15 courses meal all the time and it was so fresh coz made in front of us. I even took pics of their fruit carving skills! They were quite professional coz when 8 egg orders during breakfast were made in one go, without using a notepad, she could actually remember who takes which style of eggs. That's what I called professional. I loved how the team prepared a surprise birthday cake for me too and even decorated their BBQ area. It's customization that won my heart.

5 star stay at Villa Karpe Diem!

We loved our week long stay Villa Karpe Diem. From the moment we arrived the outstanding management team and household staff put us at ease. Everything from the airport transfer to in villa dining was seamless and personalized. We were only planning to have in villa breakfast but the food was so outstanding we decided to arrange for lunch and dinner several days as well. The villa was perfectly appointed, with incredible views (understatement), amazing chill out space and a gym and massage room to boot. It was a holiday to remember. We can't wait to go back.

Karpe Diem is situated in Chaweng Noi. Chaweng is Ko Samui's most popular and famous beach, stretching for some five kilometres along Ko Samui's east coast. Chaweng Noi ("Little Chaweng") is a smaller beach, just to the south of the main deal, and is the last strip of sand before the winding road south via Coral Cove and Thong Ta Kien to Lamai Beach.

The beach remains one of the most beautiful on Ko Samui. Walking along the squeaky white-dust sand to the clear waters is indeed an unforgettable experience.

Chaweng Noi and Chaweng Hills separate Chaweng and Lamai by way of steep hills and dramatic cliffs and rock formations.
A drive on the Ring Road between Chaweng and Lamai offers some of the most breathtaking views of the bay. Several excellent restaurants have taken advantage of these views and resorts have been built precariously on huge boulders overlooking the bay.

Koh Samui, commonly referred to as Samui by locals, is an island located close to the mainland town of Surat Thani. Samui is Thailand's 2nd largest island after Phuket. It boasts an area of approximately 225 km2 and a population of 63,000. 1.5 million tourists visit annually. Large enough so as to give you lots of things to explore during your stay, but small enough to provide a homey atmosphere, Koh Samui and the welcoming manner of the local population is sure to charm you from your very first visit.
