Koh Samui Villas
There is a large choice of villas for sale and rent on Koh Samui. Although the number of exclusive 3 and 5 bedroom villas has increased in recent years, the most popular properties are priced in the mid-range bracket and are generally 2-bedroom detached family houses.
The 1-2 bed bungalow-style villas are typically priced between 3-4 million baht and are usually located within residential developments but at the top end, villas can be found for 40 million plus. Properties in Koh Samui are still generally cheaper than on Phuket, particularly luxury properties, and compared to Europe and other western countries such properties still represent excellent value for investors.
Modern Asian architectural designs predominate on Samui and natural materials with internationally sourced fixtures and fittings installed in open-plan interiors which maximize access to outdoor spaces. Landscape specialists and resident interior design companies personalize each property and add a feeling of uniqueness to each villa.
Chaweng, Lamai and Bophut are the more populated areas on the island and all offer a wide selection of mid-range villas and developments. Many exclusive villas are located close to the relatively untouched north and west coasts. Several of these villas also have panoramic views over the sea and private beach access. Hillside plots are slowly becoming the preferred location for buyers, with beachfront land becoming more difficult to find, and these offer a sense of space and privacy. This makes it possible to rent or buy excellent quality, well-priced villas in a wide variety of locations around the island.
