I don\'t know where to start. It was beyond our expectations. Pictures could be deceiving but not in our case. Villa was even better than the pictures. Layout is fantastic. Quality of furniture, bathroom fittings and cleanliness was impeccable. Pool was really nice as well. It came to a point that we were thinking of buying the villa and just move to Koh Samui. I am usually very lazy to give feedback but Luxury Retreats and the team deserves it. Kathleen, Tanya and the staff at the villa were amazing. No complains. In fact, the activities coordinator at Koh Samui, Pat and Andy really helped us out. We didn\'t have to go anywhere. They were always available and communication was straight forward. This was one of our best experiences ever. I rather stay at a villa like Ban Haad Sai instead of a hotel. It wasn\'t commercial and infact very personalized. Loved the music system and it\'s ability to operate from the dining and living room. Great job guys. Well done. - Ameen M., , Singapore

The villa was very nice, and our onsite rep - Am - was extremely accomodating in all our requests. The chef was excellent and we enjoyed quite a few meals in house. The pool area and 2 lounges provided ample space for everyone not to feel crowded. We arranged yoga classes most of the days, with a GREAT teacher. The only downside was that the front rooms of the villa, facing the road, were pretty noisy. 1 of the rooms also had a foul odour that we mentioned but didnt seem to improve. - Vivienne F., , Hong Kong

We went to Koh Samui and the Ban Haad Sai Villa with our family of ten to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary. Our children had arranged a wonderful celebration that included massages, special clothing, a Buddhist blessing, flowers, a videographer, etc. The events were captured in wonderful photos which we will always enjoy. The staff at the Villa were amazing. They catered to our every need. The grandchildren enjoyed the pool and the beach, and the adults enjoyed the privacy of each of the villa rooms.
