Villa Suralai - Gorgeous villa facade

The Locale

Located high in the lush green hills above Samui's popular resort of Bophut, Suralai is just 6km from Samui's international airport and 7km from gorgeous sandy beaches at the island's main tourist centre, Chaweng.

Thanks to its elevation, the villa enjoys spectacular views from the north-east coastline and the Gulf of Siam, to offshore islands such as Koh Phangan, popularly known as 'Full Moon Island', as well as of the island's striking mountainous interior with its coconut palm clad slopes and dramatic waterfalls.

Circumnavigating Koh Samui by car takes just over an hour, so nothing is very far away. The key jumping off point for boat trips and excursions to discover offshore islands is a mere 6km away at Big Buddha.

Highly accessible and convenient, Suralai is always a peaceful sanctuary away from all the noise and activity, waiting to welcome you back.

Things to Do

Fisherman’s Village & Night Market | Friday is the ‘Night Market’ at Fisherman’s Village, just 3km from your villa. Along the charming narrow beach road, traditional Thai wooden houses are now chic boutique stores, trendy restaurants and bars. On Friday evenings, the village explodes into a riot of colour and activity as vendors from all over the island set up shop selling everything from Thai and international street food, to chic fashions, electronics and local souvenirs and much more. And don’t miss the fire-eating entertainment on the beach in front of Coco Tam.
Luxury Island Cruising | Charter a luxury 13m catamaran for the day and sail out to the glorious coconut-palm-covered island of Koh Phangan for a sublime day of swimming, snorkelling and exploring its beautiful, untouched beaches. Pull in for lunch at one of a number of beachside restaurants or pack a luxury picnic and choose your anchorage for a taste of unspoiled paradise.
A Day at the Beach | Spend a day with your toes in the sand at one of the island’s many beautiful sandy beaches. Just nearby are the bays of Bophut, Big Buddha, Chaweng and Choeng Mon, all with a variety of beachside facilities and restaurants.  Further afield, the deserted palm-fringed beaches at Bang Po and Laem Nai on the north-west coast are a popular spot for their rustic beach front restaurants and stunning views of Ang Thong and Koh Phangan islands.   
Samui’s Spirit of Adventure | Sports and adventure enthusiasts of all ages will be thrilled by the variety of action activities available on Samui. Choose from kite surfing at Nathon, off-road safaris on three and four-wheeled ATVs or 4WDs, bungee jumping, zip-lining through the rainforest, canopy walks and waterfall hikes to Muay Thai boxing tournaments and high-speed go-karts to name a few.  
World-class Golfing in Samui | Santiburi Samui Country Club is one of the most beautiful golf courses in Asia and the island’s only championship 18-hole, par-72 golf course.  Stretching along the hills of the northern coastline with spectacular elevations from 25 - 180meters above sea level, it is often called a ‘slice of heaven’. This challenging course is surrounded by natural rainforest and coconut-palm plantations, with distracting views of the mountains and ocean at every turn, which makes it an oasis of pure golfing pleasure.
Tour the Island’s Temples and Waterfalls | Take a tour of this beautiful island to see the waterfalls and temples. Nearby is Samui’s most iconic landmark, the golden Big Buddha and its impressive neighbour, Plai Laem Wat. Further south in Lamai, visit the enigmatic ‘Mummy Monk’ at Wat Khunaram the island’s most famous mummified monk, and nearby Wat Sila Ngu or Red temple.  Then head home through the mountains via stunning waterfalls, magnificent scenery and aerial views of the island.
