Akuvara - In-villa chef

Staff

Akuvara - Dedicated staff

One of the great joys of staying in Akuvara is the dedicated, energetic, cheerful and highly trained staff.  They ensure that all guests have everything they want, and never have to lift a finger.  Thais have a worldwide reputation for their welcoming character and high service standards.  But the level of staff presence is entirely up to you.  Would you prefer staff to be around at mealtimes only?  Or would you like them to be on hand to serve cold drinks and snacks throughout the day?  Just let your villa manager know how much attention you are comfortable with.

Villa manager

Your English-speaking villa manager is your go-to person for any of your needs and wants, and will be pleased to share knowledge about where to go and what to see on Koh Samui.

Chef

The villa’s chef excels in the preparation of Thai, Asian and Western favourites.  The chef will suggest dishes from the villa’s wide menu, or can prepare special dishes on request, also taking care of health and dietary requirements.  The chef is also happy to give cookery lessons.  Going out?  Get a scrumptious picnic basket to go with you.

Akuvara has a housekeeper who keeps the villa spotless and tidy, inside and out.  She also helps in the kitchen and with serving meals or drinks.

Gardener

The gardener, who has worked at Akuvara for several years, keeps the grounds looking beautiful.

    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 . !!
