Designed by the multi-award-winning GFAB Architects, Villa Blue View is perfectly named. A striking, contemporary 5-bedroom, 5-bathroom villa, perched 180 metres above sea level in the hills above Koh Samui's peaceful north coast, the property is also located just 800 metres from a quiet stretch of beach.
The intuitive layout is an example of GFAB founder Gary Fell's unique vision. Assertively modern architecture and minimalist designs take full advantage of the outstanding location and guests benefit from an accomplished balance of refined luxury and natural appeal.
Private comfort, ease and leisure are central to the personalised holiday experience on offer at Villa Blue View. The generous infinity-edge private pool literally pours into the soothing ocean vistas and thoughtful inclusions like built-in, cushioned day beds and a state-of-the-art barbecue unit in the poolside sala add to the sense of sophisticated retreat.
Beautifully planted garden areas punctuate the living spaces at all levels, surrounding the villa with tropical greenery, while leading-edge technology compliments the natural ambiance.
Each guest room boasts a King-size bed and large ensuite bathrooms with sleek bathtubs, although the fifth bedroom can be converted for younger guests thanks to two twin beds and two purpose-built bunk beds. Whilst Villa Blue View is stunning at any time of day, come sunset and twilight, it transforms into quite a magical space, so get those cocktails flowing and enjoy!

Dhevatara Residence occupies the northern end of Bophut bay, a wide sweep of sandy beach, which at its centre hosts Fisherman\'s Village, a quaint, picturesque beachside community that offers an attractive, authentic alternative to the main tourist centres of Chaweng and Lamai. The sleepy seaside lane is lined with a choice of restaurants and bars, many occupying traditional wooden shophouses, but comes alive every Friday as a Walking Street, with local crafts, traditional food and music to entertain the family crowds. Speedboats leave Bophut Pier for nearby islands such as Koh Phangan, Koh Tao and Ang Thong National Marine Park and the northern section of the palm fringed bay plays home to a number of boutique resorts.
Baan Chang is the most expansive and exclusive of the six stunning villas that make up the Dhevatara Cove Estate on Koh Samui's secluded eastern shore. The 5 bedroom private beachfront residence is nestled into a tranquil cove with mature, tended tropical gardens that extend through the ample grounds and open onto an undisturbed stretch of sandy beach. Chang means elephant in Thai and the Kingdom's famous royal beast is beautifully represented throughout the property, from the giant statues in the garden at the entrance to delightful, hand-painted sliding doors on the TV cabinet in the lounge. High, pinnacled ceilings in the living and bedroom pavillions, along with a liberal use of top quality natural materials and an abundance of Thai silk also lend the villa a strong sense of its exotic location. Despite an atmosphere of royal antiquity, Baan Chang is also a very modern holiday villa, fitted with the latest home technology and furnished throughout with unique pieces like the impressive, circular dark wood table in the dining room and the huge sofa-daybed in the lounge poised in front of an LED Smart TV. All the spacious ensuite bedrooms open onto meditative ocean or garden views and also boast indulgent bathtubs for the ultimate private soak.
