Excellent villa and service

The villa is has an open design and very well maintained. Opal, the villa manager is an excellent host. She is like the Swiss Knife of the place. We are most grateful of her service. Strongly recommend the place for large group of people. We had 5 families with lots of kids staying at the villa and were very well looked after.

Perfect spot for a great event

Stayed here for my son's wedding. The View exceeded all expectations! The staff was incredible. Great food, a great balance of service and privacy. As the name suggests, the actual view is incredible. Couldn't have asked for more. A perfect place for a fantastic event. Thanks too everyone, especially Opal and her staff.

The View wins again

We stayed at The View again earlier good year and had a fabulous time. Opal and Sa looked after us so beautifully and the facilities (as always) were absolutely perfect for our big family holiday. I can't revommend The View highly enough!!

It's all about the detail...

If you are reading this, you must have already browsed the pictures of The View wondering whether or not this is the place for you. Having stayed here for a glorious week with two families, I can safely guarantee you that it is. However, pictures alone (enticing as they are), could never do full justice to the experience of actually being at The View. They won’t tell you about eternally kind and patient hostess Opal and her delightful staff who stop at nothing to deliver on each and every request made of them. No end of sunset pictures can fully describe the experience of taking in cocktails as the sun cools itself beyond the horizon, silhouetting the famous five islands. Photos won’t tell you about the house-wide audio and video system or the impressive music and movie collection to suit every taste, mood or occasion. They can’t tell you quite how comfortable the beds are, or about the waterfall running down the rock face into which the house is built, or about how much time it is possible to lounge in and around the pool area. And they certainly won’t tell you quite how delicious the food will be. Or indeed how much of it you will eat… If detail is the difference between great and extraordinary, then The View is all about detail. The owners of this magnificent, modern and extremely comfortable holiday home have spared no expense in catering to their guests whims and wishes. Let there be no mistake - this is high-end holidaying, but The View delivers time and again on its one simple promise - to ensure their guests spend their precious days indulging in nothing but maximum fun, the finest food and total luxury. I strongly suggest that you pay a visit to this amazing place as soon as you can.

Once in a lifetime experience

Our stay at the View was simply incredible, from the moment we were greeted by the beaming smiles of wonderful staff upon arrival to the exceptional standards of the villa to the incredible food. Everything about the villa exceeded all of our expectations and was no doubt a highlight of the trip to Samui. Once we arrived we were given a delicious drink and a tour of the property, everyone was blown away by the attention to detail and the stunning architecture. We were then served up a delicious late night meal which was among the best meals we had on the trip. We awoke the next day to breathtaking views of the 5 islands and Ang Thong and spent the day playing on the kayaks, and stand up paddle board, swimming in the pool and generally relaxing. The staff made a delicious pool side sunset BBQ on the 2nd evening - the perfect end of the stay which unfortunately couldn't be any longer!

Safety facilities


The View is perched on a rocky headland between two unspoilt beaches in Taling Ngam. The property overlooks an unspoilt sand-swept cove on Koh Samui's secluded southwest coast. From the villa, you can enjoy 180 degree vistas of island from almost every room. Taling Ngam is one of the most secluded and least developed areas in Koh Samui and so the villa is ideal for those who wish to get away from it all and enjoy the undisturbed life of the nearby fishing village. However, if you crave for some action, a walk along the beach will take you to beachside restaurants and five star dining facilities. The villa is around 45 minutes' drive from the airport and 20 minutes drive away from the tourist town of Nathon is 20 minutes to the north and 30 minutes from the bustling Lamai beach.

Taking elegant tropical luxury to the next level

The View lives up to its name - it is built in a way to enable guests enjoy the ocean splendour from each room of the property. Enjoy a relaxing stay with the sun and sky as your backdrop till as far as your eyes can see while drifting between indoor and outdoor pleasures. The best of the views is perhaps reserved for the evening when you see the sun setting in the distant horizon from the soft-landscaped garden, pool deck or private beachside terrace. The shaded walkway of the entrance leads to a beautiful landscaped garden that extends out to the oceanfront hillside, beyond it to the glittering ocean. On the right is a chic, three storey pavilion which houses 4 spacious, glass walled living and sleeping spaces. The living room is fitted with all entertainment facilities including a projector for watching films. From the room, you can take in the views of a plant-covered natural cliff face, a pond feeding the waterfall that flows through the centre of the property. A staircase leads to the first floor master suites and down to pool, terrace, bar and covered relaxation lounge. Directly across from the living room, there is a dining area served by a fully fitted, resort-style kitchen and a breakfast bar.

The two bedroom upstairs feature central king sized beds, large flat screen TVs (with satellite and DVD players), and other accessories. One bedroom has both in- and outdoor rain showers in the en-suite bathroom; the other has in-room shower installation, and an outdoor tub surrounded by trees. The View also has an infinity pool with attached Jacuzzi. There is an outdoor dining area which is served by a built-in barbeque next to the pool bar. A poolside recess features furniture for relaxation and evening entertainment. A second sea view terrace serves as a massage sala; below it a fully fitted gymnasium.

The remaining 4 bedrooms occupy their own pavilions to the left of the central landscaped garden. The two double guest rooms are stand-alone bungalows with spacious interiors, balconies and en-suite bathrooms featuring showers with sliding doors that open onto tropical views. A walkway leads to a pavilion to the rear, which houses a bright, airy children's room with 6 comfortable, built-in bunks, furnishings and a flat screen TV. This room shares a bathroom with a comfortable, twin bedroom with its own private balcony. From the bedroom pavilions a wooden walkway leads to the villa's private beachside terrace with fitted speakers and another projector screen for outdoor cinema. View villa is also serviced with housekeeping and other support staff ready to service you with a smile.

Kids Room with 3 Bunk Beds at USD100++ per night and must be booked with at least 3 bedrooms or above.
