“Gorgeous villa in spectacular setting with stunning views.”
Mark is a gracious host who had his driver greet us at the airport. After a thorough tour of the beautiful villa and property, Mark promptly drove us to the most reputable scooter rental facility on the island where we easily procured our four scooters for the week; all arranged in advance by Mark. He then had us follow him through Lamai where he pointed out all the best eateries and other stores and services of interest. After settling in, Mark was always available via text (or phone) to assist with directions and recommendations and to help with whatever else we needed. The villa is in a secure location and has plenty of room for six, although there were only four of us. The accommodations were quiet, and all the amenities were in excellent condition. The location of the villa itself is excellent, situated between Lamai and Chaweng. We found ourselves moving between both "towns" multiple times per day (which is fun and easy via scooter) for dining, shopping, massages, bars, and other sites to be seen. We explored the entire island by scooter and are definitely not disappointed with our decision to make Koh Samui our primary destination on this Thailand visit. Villa Lomchoy is an excellent value (and again, a stunning property and structure with spectacular views) and the personal service cannot be beat. Definitely recommend.
My travel was with my wife , mother n law and my one year old son. The view is the most amazing view you could ever imagine. There We're a great deal of steps to gain entry into property but after a few days you will adjust. Great for a couples retreat or a gang of friends just to relax and party.
“Our hilltop paradise”
We recently stayed at Villa Lomchoy for just over 3 weeks. We are a family of 4 with 2 young children. It was so perfect for us. The views from every room are simply breathtaking. There are loads of stairs, but this was fine as it was our daily exercise. It's really nice to retreat up the hill to this villa and get away from hustle and bustle down below. So serene and quiet. The pools were great for our family too. Our 5 year old loved the top pool. We had motorbikes so access to everything was super easy. If you were relying on cabs I think it would be difficult. The service was good, our rooms were cleaned every other day. Everything clean and fresh. The rooms are not inter connecting like we thought, but we had a baby monitor and this was no problem. The second bathroom off the lounge we did not use, unfortunately it had a very bad smell, but it's a 3rd world country so these things happen. Mark was great if we needed anything it was only a phone call or email away and it was resolved. Nan (Marks partner) was our Nanny for the 3 weeks. She was brilliant. Our kids were sad when we left and still talk of her. I would highly recommend this villa to anyone and we will be back for sure next year!
Response from the owner Yes, we had a brief problem with the septic system. It has been addressed, and the smell from the downstairs bathroom is all gone.
Mark and the staff were great and ver accomodating. Mark had a driver waiting for us at the airport and gave us door to door service, which is a great way to start a relaxing trip. The view from the property was amazing. The villa is updated and clean and perfectly positioned between Chaweng and Lamai beach. The only challenge is that he property is at the top of a very steep hill, hence the great view. The location will require you to rent a car or find a driver who is willing to drive up the hill for pick up/drop off. Several taxi drivers will not take you all the way up. But again, Mark was great and provided several taxi drivers that we worked with during the week. We ended up negotiating a daily rates with some of the drivers vs.negotiating a per ride fee. Tani is the guy we liked the best, super honest and was willing to pick us up pretty late from Chaweng. All in all its a great place.
Response from the owner We have a few taxi drivers on call, who will drive up the hill. Some are afraid of the hills. But, many will drive up the hill. If you use one of our recommended drivers, no problem. Also, alot of people who stay in the villa opt to either rent a car, or motorbikes. We can help with the arrangements for that also.
“The place, the views, the relaxation-superb.”
Koh Samui was selected as a half way house for a "meet up with our friends from the UK". This was our first visit and both the island and Villa Lomchoy exceeded our expectations. Mark, the owner was a convivial host and nothing was too much trouble in aiding us to make the best of our time. Taxis(both drivers provided by Mark were absolutely superb. Always on time and taking us to some fabulous places that we would never have seen as a "tourist")and massages were arranged without fuss or dificulty.The free wi fi was definitely a bonus! Local advice on shopping and good local restaurants was taken on board and appreciated. The quiet location of the villa, at the top of "heart attack" hill worked well for us, alternating between relaxing days around the superb pools with outstanding views and trips to the beaches,shopping or the bars and nightlife of Chaewang and Lamai. Our over 50's group managed to walk down the hill a couple of times and walk up it once! You will need transport but as above it was never an issue. Cleanliness and amenities were first class and out and about the locals were extremely helpful and friendly. All in all a great, relaxing time was had by all.
We stayed at Villa Lomchoy over Christmas and New Year and had a great time. It is probably the villa with the best views on the island. We did spend a lot of time enjoying the amazing views from the rooftop terrace. We also did Bbqs there with fresh seafood bought at the local market, highly reccomended! There is a steep road leading up to the house. We rented a car with the help of Mark, the owner and would not have been without it. You could probably survive walking up and down from the main road a few times but renting a motorbike or a car is really the best way to get up and down and also for touring the beautiful island. The villa is spacious and can easy accommodate 4 people in the two bedrooms. All rooms are fitted with high end TV and DVD systems which is great for a rainy day. We had a great stay and can highly reccommend Villa Lomchoy!
“Away from the crowd”
The house is very comfortable with a wonderful view. It's very clean, the kitchen fully equipped and the bed very comfortable. The house in up to the hill close to the main beaches "chaweng" and the beautiful "chaweng noi". There are even lot of restaurant close to. The house is perfect for families and for all the people who wants to stay in a quiet and relaxing place. You need a car to reach it as the road is very sharp.
Great property that has a tremendous view and ideal location between Lamai and Cheweng. House sleeps 5-6 very comfortably and the amenities provided are everything you need for a comfortable stay. The owner, Mark was very helpful with local recommendations, house cleaning, ride to/from airport and arranging scooter and car rental. Last but not least, arranging a couple of days of massages for the house guests was a big win! I would recommend the property.
A group of us recently stayed in Villa Lomchoy for 9 nights, and highly recommend the villa. The views have to be some of the best on the island. There were 5 of us who stayed in the villa, and there was definitely enough room for all of us. Someone stayed in the room with the couch, which worked perfectly since it had its own full bath attached. Although the pools are shared with other guests, you can always also relax on the private balconies of the villa. I would definitely recommend renting a car or a scooter since the villa is on such a steep hill (hence the view). We had problems finding a taxi that would venture up the hill and the walk is definitely not easy. Nan and Mark were extremely helpful and provided all of the help we needed. It was nice to have the house cleaned with fresh towels and linens. Mark also gave us so many restaurant recommendations that were right on. They both went out of their way to make us comfortable and ensure we had a positive stay. They even arranged for us to have massages come to the house for around $10 for 60 minutes. You can't beat that! You are right in the middle of Lamai and Cheweng, which makes it a convenient location. There were some good beaches very close as well which was nice.
Response from the owner We have a few recommended taxis, who will drive up the hill. There is a huge, private terrace in front of the living room, on the second level, and a 125 meter private roof deck, that is stunning, with outstanding views of the Gulf and Chaweng.
“We loved this villa! Samui rocks!”
Where do we start? Here were our favorite things about this villa, and this trip: Amazing views. Every day the view was different. Some days we watched the storms rolling in. Others we just chilled on the roofdeck, or by the pool. The views never got old. Both pools. This villa has not one, but two pools. The one up above was shallow, and perfect for wading. The one down below was deep, and perfect for laps. The food. Sandalwood across the road had great food, and we could just walk there. They even offered to deliver up to the villa! Nearby, there were some great restaurants. Dr. Frogs was only 1km away! The weather. Not foggy, and unpleasant like back home. Sunny most days, with a nice breeze. Most nights we did not use the aC, as there was a nice breeze. The hosts. From renting us a car, to offering recommendations on night life, and sights to see, to keeping the villa immaculate for us, Mark and Nan were beyong gracious. Space. My husband and I like alot of space. This home had large rooms, a huge terrace in front of the living room, a huge roofdeck, and alot of patio area by the pool. Location. Since we both play golf, we appreciated being near Rsgcc, which is about five minutes from the villa, and shares the same hill. It was also very convenient to both Chaweng, and Lamai. What else can I say? We highly recommend this villa!
