Linked by beautifully kept tropical gardens are two well-appointed garden-view guest bedrooms, a self-contained upper-floor guest suite and a large master bedroom just a couple of steps from the 13 x 5-metre pool, the sala and the beach.  At the other end of the pool is an outdoor dining deck, and inside is a choice of three lounge areas, a modern kitchen and an indoor dining pavilion.

Although not as large or grand as other luxury private villas on Samui, Akuvara, with its modern glass architecture, is ideal for gatherings of friends and families of all ages.

    Thank you very much for your email. We had a wonderful time at Akuvara with May and her team. They were fantastic and we hated to leave! Also it would have been lovely if the chef had been a bit more forthcoming with what she could cook. Her food was absolutely delicious, towards the end of our stay she was bringing out food we hadn’t asked for and it was amazing!

    I wanted to pass on our thanks for enabling us to have the most wonderful holiday. Our accommodation was perfect, there was not one thing we could fault. The cleanliness inside and out was faultless. Our food absolutely delicious and the staff catered to our every need. Both May and Tee were most professional and a pleasure to deal with and advised us on lots of activities and venues to visit. Tee and the staff managed to organize breakfast and showers for us on our last day when the power went out so we were not inconvenienced at all. A credit to them.

    Our stay at Villa Akuvara has been perfect in all aspects. The location with the picturesque view is amazing. The pool overlooking the ocean with the sound of the brids, waves crashing is the perfect combination of a serene tranquil and relaxing break. Add to this the luxurious villa, yummy food and the staff who look after your each little need is the carry on the cake. The warm and friendly Joy made sure we are looked after very well. Our Kids enjoyed their time here and are already looking forward to a second stay here in the future.

Villa Manager was absolutely a pleasure to deal with - She went above and beyond for our trip here - making sure all stomachs were always full and the kids had endless fun.

  • August 12th, 2018 - August 18th, 2018

    What to say after a week in paradise. Great location on an isolated beach watching the waves and the Raja ferry in their daily dance. Nothing to worry nothing to plan - except the menu with our star chef Pueng. We hope to come back as soon as possible!

  • March 22nd, 2018 - March 27th, 2018

    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.

  • February 23rd, 2018 - March 2nd, 2018

    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.

  • February 11th, 2018 - February 17th, 2018

    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.

  • January 11th, 2018 - January 23rd, 2018

    Our time at Akuvara was everything we hoped for and more. Tranquil, relaxing in a wonderful location on a peaceful beach. It was the ideal place to just stop and unwind. We read books, swam everyday in the pool and ocean, played tennis, paddled on the kayak and we were so well looked after by the staff. The food each day was a highlight with delicious Thai cuisine. Thanks to chef Max, Joy and her team, all are wonderful.

  • May 31st, 2012 - June 8th, 2012

    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 . !!
