Villa Suralai: Unbeatable Luxury And Incredible Service
Many people would readily agree that nothing beats a holiday in a serene environment with luxury all around you. Over the years, I have always looked forward to spending my holiday in an environment that is devoid of city bustle and the answer came when I discovered Villa Suralai in Koh Samui, Thailand.
I looked for information about this amazing villa online and booked for our family through AIRBNB. Here’s the link. I would like to share our awesome experience with readers.
First, Let’s Talk About The Arrival and Checking-in:
Villa Suralai is situated on Thailand’s second largest, Koh Samui which is widely known for its palm-fringed beaches. The villa is just 15 minutes away from the Samui International Airport. When we arrived at our destination which was set high in the Bophut Hills, we were delighted to see that the reality matched everything that we had read about the Villa. The property was quiet, sparkling clean and felt magical which was exactly what we had expected for our holiday. We checked in and were immediately impressed by the stylish layout, the furnishings, amenities and a world-class ocean view from almost every aspect.
The property has a full time chef and the in-villa dining menu was very comprehensive and included heaps of options for our large group to choose from. Breakfast was included in the nightly rate (a massive bonus in my view). Lunch and dinner menu items were an optional extra. Although we weren’t previously accustomed to Thai cuisine, I have to admit that we absolutely loved trying the different dishes that were on offer, along with classic western dishes as well. It really helped to make our holiday a more memorable one. During our stay we tried out dishes like Tom Kha Kai, Gaeng Daeng, Pad Thai, Khao Pad and several other local delicacies.
The Service Staff:
One of our first impressions at the villa was that their staff were fully on-ground to cater for our needs when we alighted from the vehicle. Throughout our stay, we interacted with the Villa Manager, private Thai chef, maids and groundskeepers. They were all very approachable, courteous and friendly, eager to ensure that we had an amazing stay. Khun Tee (the Villa Manager) was incredible and I cannot thank him enough for how well he looked after us.
Apart from the tasteful furnishing and decor, we were also delighted to notice the Bose speakers which were everywhere in the Villa to create whatever ambience we wanted. It did come in handy during our evening dinners which made the moment magical which I think is a brilliant idea. Plus, if you’re trying to stay fit, there’s a gym on the property to help you meet your fitness goals, and you can also connect to the WiFi wherever you are on the property. Did I also mention that there’s an in-villa wine selection? There’s a reason why Villa Suralai has the reputation of ‘where the wine flows’ and you’re most likely to find out.
We had an unforgettable time at the Villa; it afforded us the opportunity to unwind after working so hard for months. My memories at Villa Suralai are priceless, and I will gladly visit again for my next vacation. One final thing to mention is that we booked this villa on AIRBNB through Paragon Villas. Their service was fantastic and I would definitely book through them again.
