We were joined by more family for the second week and so moved to Villa Sila which was plenty big enough for 15 adults. Again our experience was just fantastic. There is nothing that we would change about our stay except to make it longer.” Tripadvisor Review

To give you an idea of what’s available we’ve selected two of Miskawaan’s villas to highlight.
Surrounded by lush tropical greenery, Villa Acacia is a secluded four-bedroom villa which commands 22 metres of beachfront at the fringe of the estate for the utmost privacy.
Lustrous Jim Thompson fabrics and wallpaper by French boutique Elitis form an elegant Thai aesthetic, joined by a fully-equipped gym and a swimming pool overlooking the beach. Connected to neighbouring Villa Bougainvillea by a subtle gate, Acacia is ideal for groups who want to remain separate yet still have easy access. This villa is also available as a two-to-three-bedroom villa. Highlights include outdoor and indoor dining areas, private gym, garden shower, gas fired outdoor BBQ and use of kayaks.
A slightly larger option is Villa Lotus. Sino-Portuguese touches and Thai artwork lend this grand villa plenty of local character. The sprawling grounds feature 39 metres of beach frontage and six bedrooms, including a family room split over two levels with a pool table and a master bedroom with a Jacuzzi, making it a favourite among large groups and wedding parties. A large swimming pool and a steam room complete the list of facilities. Also available as a four-to-five-bedroom villa. Highlights include indoor and outdoor dining areas, indoor lounge, a games room with pool table, use of kayaks, study/office and an outdoor bar.
Miskawaan Beachfront Villas has curated bespoke itineraries that turn your dream vacation into a reality. Whether you want to relax in your villa or discover the local secrets of Samui, they will handle all the planning for you.
Without leaving your villa, relax with a yoga session or a soothing massage; chill in your hammock with a fresh coconut; or learn new skills like muay Thai or Thai cooking from talented local instructors.
Adventurous types can take a luxury chauffeur service (is there any other way to go on an adventure?) into the island’s lush jungle for a guided hike to a waterfall, an adrenaline-fuelled ziplining session, or a stroll with gentle giants at Samui Elephant Sanctuary.
Board a private speedboat right in front of your villa for a snorkelling trip to Angthong National Marine Park or a picnic on an uninhabited island; go local with a long-tail sunset cruise from Taling Ngam; make the most of your private pool with floaties and water polo; or enjoy the swimmable waters of Maenam Beach on a paddle board. You can also go on an adventure off the beaten path in a quiet location and discover Koh Samui’s rich culture and culinary delights in local history and street food tours.
As well as owning some of the best luxury villas in Thailand, Miskawaan Beachfront Villas is also a hub of wellness in the heart of a tropical paradise.
