Akuvara - Beach swing

About Akuvara

Akuvara is Sanskrit for ‘The Sea’, a simple but entirely apt name for a villa that lounges right next to the Gulf of Siam, a huge bay that is, for much of the year, as flat as glass and as blue as a lover’s smiling eyes.  Between the large pool and the sea is Lipa Noi Beach, white and almost deserted.  Stretch.  Relax.  Breathe.  This is your home for now.

This Samui villa has been designed with self-indulgent indolence in mind.  Just take a look at the spacious sala right next to the pool and beach, equipped with two large loungers that invite a snooze, a quiet chat, a good book or simply an invitation to gaze at the sparkling cobalt sea.

If lazing on the beach under the sultry tropical sun gets a little too warm, the pool and the sea compete for your attention.  Decisions, decisions... Life’s tough here.

As the sun slides down towards the horizon, dropping behind the silhouettes of the Five Islands, the nightly spectacle begins, with the blazing reds, purples, pinks and greens of the tropical sunset that reluctantly but inevitably give way to the deep violet of the night as billions of stars come out, seemingly just for you.

It’s an event that’s worth celebrating – every night – with a glass or two, perhaps, before Akuvara’s chef presents your dinner.  A feast not just for the taste buds but for all the senses.

You don’t have to be indolent for your entire stay at Akuvara, though you can be – just waft a hand in the air and the staff, who seem to know what you want before you do, will take care of every whim.  But if energy levels start to build up, jump into the villa’s kayak for a paddle out to sea, or take on the others at a game of beach football or volleyball.

And once you’re worn out, the villa’s supremely comfortable beds will carry you off into a night of deep bliss.

    Staff here work enthusiastically, meals served were very close to our taste - so we felt as comfortable as if at home and were very happy. Rooms face ocean so we enjoyed a great view. Very suitable for families with kids, as we could play on the beach, look for shells - always entertained. Peaceful surrounding. We will stay here again if we come back to Koh Samui.

    Thank you for the amazing time in Akuvara. The hospitality was absolutely wonderful. This is truly one of the most beautiful places in the world. This was the best vacation we have ever had and we really want to return someday. The tree swing made the gorgeous beach even more special. We cannot get over how delicious all the food was. I think the best chef in the world resides here. We will miss the food! Thank you for an unforgettable time.

    Service standard was excellent, food taste was quite suitable for Chinese. Location is just great, facing a smooth leveled beach, people can swim, canoe and fish here. If we have another chance visiting Koh Samui in the future, we will come back here.

    We just returned after spending 8 fabulous days at Koh Samui at Villa Akuvara and would like to thank you for meeting our expectations about the quality of the property and the service levels of the staff at the Villa . We loved every minute of our stay there and would like to point out that the SERVICE was of VERY HIGH STANDARDS and we Indians can be very fussy about services . They were at our beck and call and with a smile 24/7 and no matter what we asked for , it was done within no time . The Chef did keep whipping up meal after meal for us and we were very sad to leave and hope to be back with a bigger group soon as we were not able to do a few things due to the weather playing spoilsport .  We really have nothing negative to say about our entire experience right from booking. However, if we wanna criticize, then the only thing we came up with is that there are no telephones in the rooms (even for room-room communication). We realized this only the times when it rained really heavily and was difficult for us to step out since the rooms were not connected. But this wasn't really that big of a deal. looking fwd to renting villas through you for all our vacations in the future . !!
