"Amazing modern luxurious villa with infinity pool & ocean views"
Left on 09/14/2013 for a stay in August 2013 | KarliaReviewed Sep 14, 2013Stayed Aug 2013
We are an australian family of 8 adults (52 - 21 y/o). All are regular travellers (Asia, Europe, us) & this is without doubt the best place we have ever stayed.
Pool and grounds are amazing! Huge pool with infinity edge, pool bar (with bar fridge) & great pool side chairs for tanning. Nearby dining sala/cabana is perfect for breakfasts with a cool breeze & ocean views. There's also a shaded area with beanbags & couches. There's a fully connected audio system - connect your ipod wirelessly & music pumps out all over the pool area with speakers at all the main spots.
Top level of villa has kitchen, huge lounge area, dining table & 2 great areas for chilling out/having a drink. Kitchen has everything you need to cook.
Middle level - 4 great bedrooms and bathrooms. Master is the standout with a balcony and huge bathroom. Other 3 are identical - just remember to close your curtains when using the bathroom or someone will see you in all your glory!
Location - highly recommend scooters (250Bht per day with the villa). Top restaurants are 5 min, Fishermans Village 8 mins, Chaweng 15 mins. Note: Some taxis can't/won't go up the big hill to the villa. There's a van you can call with the villa but he is expensive. Nothing is walkable.
Staff/breakfast - staff were great and un-intrusive. They set up breakfast each morning (fruit, cornflakes, toast, muesli, yoghurt, warm croissants (with nutella yum!), juices). Additional food options for B/L/D are available at extra cost. We ordered dinner 1 night- was delicious and had 3 days worth of leftovers!
-Mosquitos - after 5pm its feeding time! You get nailed by them everywhere around the villa - bring lots of spray! Not sure if its possible but the villa should do a regular mosquito fogging.
- Familymart 3 mins scoot away to load up the fridge with drinks & snacks. Large Tesco approx 8 mins away.
- Angelas Diner towards Maenam (5 mins away) has the best rolls. Grab them takeaway and enjoy by the villa pool! Read more
Thank you so much for your wonderful review! We are very happy you and the family enjoyed your stay and we would love the opportunity to host you again!
Many thanks for all the positive comments we are always looking to improve. Kind regards, Krystyna

We booked this villa for 1 week in July 2013 with our "grown up" children and their partners direct from the internet. Initially cautious about booking such an extravagant villa online, but had excellent communications from the owners great honesty, accuracy and prompt replies to any of our questions. After reading all of the reviews before our stay, I can only reiterate all previous guest reviews, excellent quality villa, fantastic views, very private and quite, overall an absolutely outstanding villa, displaying everything exactly how it looks and feels with the online photos and descriptions. The villa staff are fantastic, great cooks, very discrete and so friendly and helpful. We were all very sad to leave but we will be back. Read more
Paul, you and the family were incredible guests and felt like family to the team at Villa Kya by the time you left. Thank you so much for your very lovely words and we so look forward to catching up with you guys again soon! Kind regards, Krystyna

Wow! is the word that both my partner and I both said as we stepped into Vill Kya the view is breathtaking. If you are reading this review dont hesitate book this villa asap you will not be disapointed, we have stayed in some beautiful villas around the world Maldives Carribean etc and this villa has to be the best. The villa has been built to capatilise on the amazing views so wherever you decide to relax you will be looking out over the sea. Steve the owner was very helpful throughout our stay and prior to our holiday arranging airport transfers great restaraunts etc nothing was too much trouble. The staff looked after us very well with great attention to detail and were never intrusive allowing us to relax as if we were at home. I have recommended this villa to all my friends and I would highly recommend it to anyone reading these reviews.

This year we decided to take my parents away on holiday and as my father always wanted to see asia we decided that Koh Samui looked like a great place to visit. We were hoping that the holiday would be perfect for all of us as the varied ages of our group could have potentially made holiday activities difficult. We need not have worried as the island had lots of things for us all to do and our days were made so easy to fill with the information given to us by the owners Steve and Krystyna. A hire car is essential as the villa is located at a high point on the island and walking may be too much for some but it was a welcome compromise for such an outstanding view. The staff at the villa made sure we wanted for nothing and they received high praise for their cleanliness from my mother who rarely gives out such accolades! The only issue we had was that we didn't have enough time to do all the things we wanted but that will be easily rectified next year by staying for longer. We have stayed at similar villas in other places around the world but there is something about this villa and it's location that make it truly special. I must add this is the first time I have been bothered to leave a review but I honestly felt our stay was so good that I needed to.
"A beautiful villa with amazing views and friendly owners."

The photos of this villa are amazing and when you arrive you will not be disappointed! We threw our bags on the floor and just started jumping around and we hadn't even got past the main reception! This villa so beautiful. It is in a tranquil and private area but yet if you want to head out everything is very local. The staff could not be more helpful (the home cooking was a dream come true and we miss it already!) and the owners were able to help us with everything we requested ahead of the trip and also when we were there. They got us great deals on cars, boat trips, suggested places to visit, great restaurants and made everything so very simple. We stayed with our family including children and with friends and everyone loved our choice of villa! Every small and personal touch makes this villa so special. Some days we just totally relaxed and enjoyed drinks by the pool and home made food. Other days we took the car 10min up the road to the local breakfast cafes and sat on a beach, visited the local temples, went for elephant rides, shopped at local markets, went on boat trips to all the local islands, had massages at local beaches, fishing trips... the list is endless and we will be returning next year for more! We will be staying here again and again with our family. Thank you for the most incredible holiday and to Krystyna and Steve for all your help in making us fall in love with the island! See you next year!

From the moment we arrived we were totally in the wow factor. The first thing that hits you is the view, you feel do close to the ocean even though you're on a hill.
The lounge and decking are so spacious and the attention to detail is very cool.
The bedrooms are really chic and cozy at the same time.
Downstairs the curvy infinity pool is so much fun, sipping cocktails at the swim up bar really makes you feel that you are on holiday.
