"Ban Loma" is Thai for "Dolphin Beach House". It has the ultimate beachfront location, just 20 short steps to your stretch of white sand beach which directly fronts the villa.
Ban Loma Beach House is decorated in a luxurious Thai style - the interior décor was completed by top Anglo-Asian designer Suzy Nina, with quality furnishings and fittings throughout, scattered with antiques that add an extra exclusive feel. It has its own private Spa. Daily maid service (2 hours) is included in the exchange - extra time or the services of a cook or baby sitter, masseuse and/or beauticians are all available at local rates. There is also a resident gardener and 24 hour security. Laundry of frequently changed bedding and towels is taken care of by our maid. Personal items can be laundered by her at a small local cost.
The exquisite master bedroom suite with its huge bourganvilla filled balcony has a Royal style canopied king size bed. Luxuriant soft silk furnishings throughout the house unveil spectacular sea views from every window, with fabulous seasonal sunsets over Ang Thong Marine Park to the west and sunrises over Koh Phang Ngan to the north east, will add an extra memorable dimension to your stay.
Direct flights serving our local airport from/to Bangkok, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur and Hong Kong.
The beauty of the villa is that you can eat in or out - perhaps cook your own BBQ on the beach or have a takeaway meal delivered. Simply please yourself - but for the ultimate luxury experience, have your own Cook who can shop for, prepare and cook a meal for two or more for a small daily supplement.

Koh Samui is a small tropical island paradise off the southern coast of Thailand, in the Gulf of Siam, its tallest buildings rise no higher than the tallest palm tree.
The interior of Samui is hilly and covered with tropical jungle having spectacular views and waterfalls that sweep down to perfect white sand beaches and an azure blue sea.
Our luxury villa is situated on the north coast of the island having easy access to all the island's scenic attractions.
It is positioned near to Maenam, between the town of Nathon, Koh Samui's small seafront capital and Chaweng Beach, the lively tourist hub, located about 10 and 20 minutes respectively by taxi or private car. Bohput, the "Fisherman's Village", is among the oldest of Koh Samui's small fishing communities and a short drive from the house, it is a favourite among visitors for dining out.
The 18-hole Santiburi International Golf Course is just a mile away. The English Sunday Times Travel Section featuring Koh Samui, described the island as being "perfect" and added that "the trick is to know where to go" it describes our north coast location - as "well worth flying halfway across the world for".
Many restaurants are within a short walk along the beach from our house towards the newly opened "Four Seasons Resort", itself about a mile west of us.
We are a relatively new, early retired, "middle aged" couple both active, and social. David was a lawyer and Meg a fashion house owner but is now involved in some Charity work. We are both non smokers, neat and tidy and clean in our habits. We enjoy travelling and have visited many places in the world - but still the travelbug burns. We prefer staying in homes as opposed to hotels and feel confident that you will enjoy relaxing in our home too.
