Some of our amazing press revues

Bruno Rodrigues & Family – Jul 2018

“This was our first time in Thailand. We spent a great time at Villa Samudra! The house is beautiful and exotic! Food was tasty. We have eaten all that we have requested.

The view of the sea was wonderful. We couldn’t take our eyes from it. We spent all the time inside the pool, from morning till evening.

Despite all this, we have to admit that it wouldn’t be the same without Dolly. Dolly is the soul of this villa. She is always present when we needed her and invisible in order not to disturb our more private moments.

If one day we return to Thailand, we will definitely look for this villa and mainly for Dolly!.

Thank you Dolly for all and apologizes if we created inconvenience

Christine, Scott, Damon + Anderson – Feb 2018

“I feel truly blessed to have had the opportunity to stay here with my family. Not only is the setting stunning, the design of each part of the villa is properly outstanding, but the service and care we’ve received have been exceptional. I have never felt so welcomed and cared for on a vacation. Thank you, Dolly, Jen + the rest of your team here for making this the best vacation we’ve ever had!

And, of course, I can’t’ end without mentioning how delicious the food has been! My biggest challenge here has been making sure I can still fit into an outfit to get home. Luckily, I brought stretchy clothes

We are already planning our return. I Thank you again for your outstanding service, care and the heart you add to this place.

With much gratitude.”

Christine P – Feb 2018

“I can’t even begin to thank you enough for the opportunity to stay at Samudra. It is absolutely stunning… and that is a gross understatement! We arrived very late last night and so only really got to see it today. I’m still trying to wrap my mind around how you came up with the design – it’s so unlike anything I’ve ever seen and so perfectly fits into the land here.

And the attention to detail – from the rocks imbedded in the concrete floors to the moss hanging on the lights to the shower tree… it’s so beautifully put together. I am relishing every treasure here, as is my husband. (He’s alteady planning a return trip.) and our boys are having the time of their lives exploring.

I also can’t say enough about how wonderful Dolly and the rest of your staff are. They so kindly waited up for us and fed us dinner at 10:30 last night (flight delays). They make us want to stay forever. And we are only wrapping up our first whole day.

With heartfelt thanks and gratitude, Christine.”

Alice – Feb 2018

“Thank you for helping us have the most wonderful time at Villa Samudra! The food was incredible, and the staff were wonderful at all times!
Dolly – you are a sunshine. The villa is a very special place and we loved every minute.

Thanks again!”

Susan P. – Feb 2018

“The beauty of villa Samudra is reflected in the graciousness of the staff. I am slightly honoured and pleased and I have to say that the care and concern I have received here are a healing forever.

Thank you Dolly and all the staff of the beautiful faces that made Villa Samudra all that it can be.

Blessings to all of you.”

Steve C – Jan 2018

“Villa Samudra is a truly magical place, made even more special by Dolly (on-site Manager) and her Team. Nothing was too much trouble, and she literally never said ‘no’ to any of our many requests.

Our group of 13 guests across 3 families had the most memorable experience here and can’t wait to go back. We spent the majority of our time in the pool, lounge area and outdoor covered dining area, and also took the kayaks out from the beach which is directly accessible from the property.

Dolly arranged people who came to us for good Thai massage in the comfort of the property, as well as a day out exploring other islands by speedboat and snorkelling. The Villa is away from the hustle and bustle of the Tourist spots but not much is more than half an hour away, with Chaweng Beach 30-40min drive away should you wish to visit the busier area.

Thanks again Sarah for all your help in arranging this awesome holiday!!!”

Leah – Jan 2018

“Thank you for looking after us and the magnificent food you prepared! Nothing was a problem and you always said yes. The place was what we ever hoper for and more. We made some truly great memories with family and friends, and the kids enjoyed playing with Han!

From Leah, Jensen, Ben, Lucious, Vincent, Tristen, Micael, Steve, Amanda, Daniel, Nat, Vik, John.”

Lauren H – Dec 2017

“It was a wonderful trip for our big family. we all love it. and very convenience for a big family to join there with boats, kids playing sand, swimming, and also nice view in the sea side, everyday we can see different sunset。also we can order what we like to this butler service house. like foods, or what we had short. even we can cook by ourself. It is a good choice for big family to stay.”

Excerpt from Tropical living magazine – May 2009

“Comparing a residence to a national park would be an analogy unbefitting of most properties, but not this one. Samudra, sanscrip for gathering of waters, has one of the most breathtaking views on the island. The untouched land, with it’s varying topography of sane, stone and forest, is the ideal setting to create a retreat so special, it would be impossible to replicate.”
