I have just returned from a 2 week stay in Villa Crystal and I am missing it already. This villa is superb and the photos do not do it justice. My husband and I didn't do as much as we had planned on the island because once you get to the villa you really don't want to leave. The view is spectacular and you can just sit and watch for hours it's so relaxing. The pool is so refreshing and also has a never ending view. The bedroom is downstairs and when it gets hot at night you can leave the doors open to let the cooling breeze in although there is an Air Conditioner.
You have totally privacy and there are no villas above you as Crystal is the highest.
The villa is set in an estate which has a 24 hour guard on the gate so it is entirely safe but you will need a 4WD to go up and down the hill it is super steep but with the view it is to be expected.
David the villa owner is a wonderful host with an awesome staff. Our flight home to the island was delayed and we did not arrive until 2 am but Dave was still there to pick us up. Then when we were leaving our flight was cancelled due to bad weather so David came and picked us up from the airport and we stayed in the villa for an extra night for which I am truly grateful. If you are going to Koh Samui please at stay at Crystal Villa as I don't think there will be anything better on the island. Please send me a message if you have any questions.
The Villa Emerald is spectacular, as advertised the views across the bay from every room to wake up in the morning open the curtains and look out to see is spectacular. All the rooms are big, a fantastic bathroom with a marble double bath separate shower and his and hers sinks.
The kitchen is open plan built into granite boulders with fridge freezer and all necessary cooking equipment.The view from the dinning table looks out over the wide bay below and out to the islands its spectacular
Down stairs you have a superb lounge looking out to the bay and if you really need a tv theres one with satellite channels. The pool is big enough to cool of in and the Jacuzzi to sit and sip bubbly while looking at the sea view. I could go on about the view and the facilities but David the owner has every thing in place at his web site.
The surrounding area is very quiet at night my wife and I slept very well no disturbances from other villa's . Some nice walks along an empty beach just the odd local looking for clams when the tide goes out.
Surrounding area has plenty of good restaurants and not to expensive. Theres a local mini market where you can get most items and the larger supermarket is not far away.
We hired a vehicle to get us around the island and to explore some other beaches, you also need a vehicle to get up to the villa as its quite high up.
David and his staff are very helpful and always at the end of a phone David very knowledgable with regard to dinning out. Villa cleaned every third day which is good, clean towels and bedding changed.
We had one of the best holidays yet we were able to chill out and relax
