s stylish contemporary beachfront samui villa with the facilities of an exclusive tropical resort.
the villa offers five, equally impressive, double ensuite bedrooms. children and additional guests can be accommodated in two further bedrooms, including a funky dormitory which sleeps up to eight and another bedroom next door to that.
at the heart of everything is a huge, inviting social level (with vast pool, living and chillout areas) and wrapped within the additional buildings, rooms and facilities that deliver a complete resort experience.
As the electric gate closes, uniformed staff will greet you and present you with refreshing welcome drinks.
Your first impression will be of the expansive space, and you'll see a manicured lawn and the two lodge houses that separate and seclude the main private beachfront estate from the outside world.
On this level of Frangipani Cove, you'll find the fitness room, dedicated TV room, children's dormitor, a twin bedroom and the office.
You are yet to discover the main Koh Samui villa below, with its strong connection to the sea. That journey begins when you step through the reception sala and see the main villa, cascading to the beach and the blue-green sea beyond.
Below the pool and living level is the front lawn and Bedroom One.
The villa has a different feel when approached from the beachfront: two ancient Singapore almond trees stand like sentinels guarding the Koh Samui villa and shelter the entrance sala, with its over head rain shower and a "waterfall" for washing sandy feet.
Looking up from the beach, you'll appreciate the scale of the villa's estate, which blends with the natural setting and is cloaked behind a curtain of mature trees and tropical landscaping.
The massage sala is perched above the beach at the far corner of the lawn. Set at a different angle to the rest of the Koh Samui villa, it offers a unique perspective of Matlang Island.
The living and dining areas match the pool in proportion and scale. As the sun goes down, lighting in the luxury villa in Koh Samui can be set to one of many “moods” or the flicker of candles sets a softer, more romantic tone for the evening.
At all times, you can fill the air with the music of your choice or you can simply enjoy the calm rhythm of waves lapping on the shore.
Whether you dock your own iPod into the system or dip into the digital collection of over 35,000 songs and countless playlists, the music system is very easy to use and can deliver sounds to wherever you want on the estate.
Glass doors span the entire living space and open onto a shaded travertine terrace and poolside lawn beyond. The dimensions of the main living room, with its oversized door frames and open frontage, combine perfectly with the proportions of the pool and Matlang Island beyond, to create an overwhelming feeling of space, and a truly picture-perfect panoramic viewpoint.
On the back wall, furniture seems to float on a wall of mirrors with the sea and sky reflecting out from the room as well as flowing into it. The shape and feel of this level resonates entirely with the views.
Oversized sofas and chairs can comfortably seat 10 people around the massive coffee table and a huge wooden dining table is surrounded by white and chrome chairs; this is a great area of the villa for socialising and spending time with your friends and family. Also on this level, there's a pool changing-block, the chef's kitchen, the café bar and the barbeque; a genuine resort lifestyle.
The villa's dining area has a smart, split, dining table with options. It can be a large square table for 8-12 guests; it can be split to offer cosier, more intimate meals; or it can be arranged as a dramatic long banquet table for gatherings of up to 20.
The dining area flows seamlessly into the distinct space of the café bar. The centrepiece is a massive island of plantation teak, circled by funky stools.
A casual and comfortable area for coffees and poolside drinks throughout the day. At night, smart lighting transforms the café into a sophisticated bar area. Perfect for evening drinks and snacks as we bring out the cocktail bar.
The café has an outdoor feeling as the floor-to-ceiling glass doors slide back entirely, fusing with the outdoor courtyard which wraps around a glorious and stately weeping fig tree. The counter-top facing the pool is multi-functional, doubling as an outside pool bar.
Beyond the café is a professional, fully-equipped chef's kitchen, with oversized cookers and hobs and a large fridge/freezer. There's also a pantry and a hub room, housing all the computers and distribution points for the AV and security systems.
On the other side of the Koh Samui villa's courtyard, a top-of-the-range 4-burner gas barbeque waits behind sliding teak doors to be revealed and produce the ultimate outdoor dining experience.
Set apart at the far end of this level is an additional sala which forms the private setting for a comfortable daybed with a unique outlook of Matlang Island, a quiet oasis on this otherwise communal level of your Samui villa.
The pool and living level combines the scale and facilities of a resort with all the features of a fun contemporary home. The inviting 22 metre infinity pool, tiled in exotic Balinese stone, shimmers and mirrors the sea and the sky beyond.
A line of sun loungers sits ready for action on the lawn beside the pool and, for a shady retreat from the sun, a generous pool sala commands one end of the pool. This relaxing area has comfortable and fun seating with a 360 view of the sea, the island and the magnificent villa behind.
Inspired by tropical rice fields, the main villa cascades across terraced levels through the estate and to the beach.
Five double bedrooms are discretely distanced from each other in The Cove Samui villa across three of the spacious terraces, with a further level housing the heart of the estate and the show-stopping pool, living, dining and social areas.
Each bedroom level of the villa in Koh Samui has generous landscaped gardens and spectacular ocean views.
Behind Bedrooms Four and Five, a majestic line of date palms frames a grand avenue with water fountains and ponds. At the top of a central stone staircase, an incredible seashell sculpture draws your eye through the Koh Samui villa to the point where sky meets sea.

- Children & elderly
Children are valued guests at this Samui villa
Thai people adore children and the children will instantly recognise this. The staff will fuss over your children and delight in spending time with them.
Parents can relax, knowing they have the flexibility and independence to schedule days in ways that work with their family routine, and with the freedom that comes from having people to take care of the everyday chores.
The house is well equipped to cater for the practical needs of children and is packed with places and things to engage attention and deliver lasting memories.
Family mealtimes are when a Samui villa chef truly pays dividends, just as happy to whip an omelette or macaroni cheese up for junior as craft a pad Thai for the grown-ups - at any time you wish.
As for the endless laundry that children create - simply drop it in the laundry basket and it will reappear in their wardrobe, clean and folded. Now, if that's not a parent’s paradise...?
Safety for Kids at the Samui Villa
The pool has wide steps and a long ledge to create a paddling pool depth for toddlers and a deeper end for older kids. There is no pool fence to separate the pool. However safety turtle pool alarms are available on request and the poolside sala is also ideally located for mum or dad to sit and chill whilst keeping an eye on the pool. There is a poolside changing block with a toilet, shower and changing room so children and adults alike can change in and out of wet clothes during the day or deal with "accidents" close by.
Children's Samui Villa Accommodation
For infants, Bedroom One has a large dressing room that can easily accommodate a baby cot, and a cot can also fit (but more snugly) into the dressing areas in Bedrooms Two and Three. For the older children, though, the show-stopper is the playroom and dormitory in the lodge house.
An Aladdin’s cave with a bank of bunk beds that sleep 6 and two further pull-out beds allowing eight children to hang out together in the luxury Samui villa rental. The room is a blaze of bright colours and large bean bags. There is a built in music system for bed-time story discs and plenty of toys to keep them entertained.
Directly next to the dorm is a twin bedroom, with TV and DVD, where nannies or helpers can stay and be close to the children. For added peace of mind, there is a curtain of CCTV and security beams that can be switched on to cover the outside area, and motion-activated lights in the dark so children feel safe if they step outside.
The TV room is in the same block (convenient both for baby-sitters and for the children) as is the fitness room, with the magnetic lure of a table tennis table.
Children are naturally attracted to the seashore. They’ll enjoy the excitement of finding beautiful shells and interesting coral "treasures" on the native beach, and the sheer pleasure of an evening walk along the waterfront for a sundowner and a dip in the pool at one of the resorts, or through to the magical night time wonderland of Chaweng beach.
Remember to bring waterproof booties so they can clamber on the rocks at the end of the cove to look at the fishermen's catches, or paddle out to snorkel and admire the soft corals and colourful reef fish in the shallow waters off the beach opposite your Samui villa entrance.
Older children can enjoy playing with the bikes, rip sticks and other toys around the upper courtyard.
And, when the sun goes down, there’s the sheer magic of the outdoor cinema. Complete silence, except for the crunch of popcorn, as little eyes are glued in wonder to the huge starlit screen.
A team of friendly and discrete staff will cater to your every need at Frangipani Cove Samui villa.
They will clean, shop, cook and handle laundry for you.
Khun Opal, the villa manager will be your main contact point. Her primary focus is to make sure that you have an unforgettable experience at Frangipani Cove.

In all, a team of at least five staff will be dedicated to making your stay a memorable one.
Twice daily, the Samui villa staff will check that bedrooms and living areas are clean and tidy.

Things to do
You can easily spend a week around Frangipani Cove Samui villa without repeating a dining location or cuisine. The house is set up with entertaining and catering for social gatherings very much a primary focus.
Relax and let the chef suggest menus and venues for wonderful lunches and dinners around the Samui villa in Thailand, or enjoy the fun of planning this with your guests.
Likewise with the kitchen, the chef will be happy to either cook with you, or to guide you through the mysteries of Thai cuisine. It will be a pleasure to cook in such a well-equipped space, clearly designed by people who can cook, for people who can cook. But the best thing about the kitchen is that you never need to set foot inside it if you don’t want to!
Whether it’s a large gathering around the main dining table, a relaxed Thai supper in the poolside sala, torchlit dinner on the lawn or casual lunch in the café, the Samui villa staff will be looking for ways to enrich your experience with a relaxed ambience and discreet attention.
Though you could lose yourself for the whole holiday without ever leaving this Koh Samui villa, you wouldn’t want to miss the fun of sampling some of the local sights, sounds and tastes.
Samui boasts some of the best tropical dining in Thailand and is renowned for its fine-dining restaurants.
For relaxed opulence, try The Four Seasons (La Tania) and the Six Senses Hideaway.
Funky Thai fusion from top guest chefs is on offer at the Library.
Established favourites such as Prego and La Taverna never fail to provide wonderful meals in relaxed circumstances.
The strip of bistros in Bophut Fisherman’s Villas.
Hazy summer lunches by the beach in Cheong Mon.
Day time chill-outs at Beach Republic and Nikki Beach
Sassy rock front drinks at The Cliff or the Rockpool Bar.
And always there, always delivering understated but excellent food, are the beachfront restaurants of Cheong Mon and Chaweng which all quietly appear on the beach after sunset, like sand crabs, with their wonderful lighting, braziers and the sound of the sea in the background.
For after-supper fun, Chaweng offers a selection of outdoor nightclubs, such as the famous Green Mango club and the renowned cabaret shows.
Another Thai staple, Muay Thai (Thai boxing) events are staged twice-weekly around Chaweng during the high seasons.
Koh Samui is one of Thailand's newest golf destinations.
The first world class golf resort, Santiburi Samui Country Club, opened in 2003 and is recognised as one of Thailand's best – often compared to Phuket's Blue Canyon. It’s part of the Santiburi Resort & Spa and annually hosts professional tournaments including the Bangkok Airways Open.
Santiburi is acclaimed for its spectacular scenery, challenging course (known affectionately as The Beast) and excellent year round playing conditions.
Koh Samui's second championship golf course is the more recently opened Royal Samui Golf & Country Club. Set across a mountain top in the Lamai Beach area, there are spectacular views over surrounding islands and even the Thai mainland from practically every point on the course.
Another course, the beautifully designed 9 hole, par 3 Bophut Hills Country Club, opened in 2007. Well suited for beginners or groups, as well as more serious golfers who want to fine tune their iron play before heading to one of the championship courses.
All three courses are easy to get to from Frangipani Cove Koh Samui villa – and clubs, equipment and all accessories can be hired or purchased on site.
Water Sports Near the Samui Villa
High-quality scuba diving and snorkelling is a big attraction for Samui villa guests, though probably best avoided during the November monsoon season (www.planet-scuba.net).
The most famous dive site is Sail Rock, north of Koh Phangan, which has an 18m natural rock chimney swim through and is a good place to see whale sharks. Other sites are north of Ang Thong National Park and close to the Gulf's diving Mecca, Koh Tao, which has 21 sites off its shores. A day's diving from Samui can include two or three sites.
Snorkelling excursions are a great way to see the beaches of Koh Samui in a different way than your villa in Samui offers! During a boat trip around the island you pass some of the most stunning beaches and coves: Big Buddha Bay, Choeng Mon Bay, Chaweng Bay, Lamai Bay, Hua Thanon Bay, Koh Mudsum and Koh Tan. A BBQ style picnic lunch is usually part of the deal.
Sea kayaking is another way to explore the coast. At Mae Koh, a kayaking adventure includes an easy but spectacular climb through dense rainforest and narrow ravines to arrive at the 'green lagoon' or use the two kayaks we have in the villa!
Following the success of the Samui Regatta, the island's sailing scene has come on in leaps and bounds. The surrounding islands in the Ang Thong National Park make an ideal sailing playground and good all-year-round breezes and challenging westerly winds between May and November make great sailing conditions. Several boat companies operate boat charters (Sailing in Samui and Oceanselitecharters)
In the Jungle Surrounding the Samui Villa
Over fifty elephants call Samui home, and they all work in the tourist industry. A typical 'trek' lasts between 15 minutes and half an hour and is an excellent way to see the island's jungle-clad interior. Some companies take visitors up into the hills for magnificent views over the island, others go through waterfalls, where riders run the risk of a cool shower.
To explore Koh Samui's jungle from a different perspective, go to Koh Samui Canopy Adventures. Swinging through the trees on over 500 metres of cable is certainly a different way to see the island! It features six different cable runs and beautiful waterfalls. They also provide a free shuttle from anywhere on the island, including Frangipani Cove Koh Samui villa. Samui Canopy Adventures is located in the jungle inland from Maenam beach and is well signposted.
Bungy: Not for the fainthearted! Samui bungy jump is located next to the famous 'Reggae Pub' in Chaweng, an iconic nightclub, which is handy for those needing some Dutch courage beforehand! The 50 metre jump is held over a large specially designed plunge pool. The brave (or insane!) among you can choose between individual jumps, tandem jumps, and even submersion jumps where you get dunked in the pool!
Zorbing: For the maddest tourists, you can roll down a 200 meter chute inside a large rubber ball filled with water. Based next to the small golf course at Bophut Hills, this is only for the die-hard adrenalin junkies.
Go karting: Suitable for both beginners and more experienced riders, the course is fun and fast. Samui Go-Kart provides everything from instructions to helmets. All you have to do is jump in and go. The course is open from 9am to 9pm every day, just west of Bophut off the main ring road.
Quad biking: In Maenam, there are several off-road courses for quad biking, which even small children can join in (and, for those too small to fit on the bikes, there is a paintball shooting range that delivers the same buzz).
Rock climbing in Thailand: Action Sport Asia offers incredible opportunities for adventure sports in Thailand. Whatever you are looking to do, from rock climbing to scuba diving and so much more, their site will help you tailor your holiday to your needs.
Thai Cooking Classes, On and Off-Villa in Samui
Thai cooking courses are an increasingly popular activity on the island. Thai cuisine's high profile worldwide and the easygoing environment of Samui's cookery schools encourage many visitors to take a course. The best known independent school on the island, SITCA (Samui Institute of Culinary Arts, South Chaweng) has two courses a day, a separate food carving course, a well stocked shop and an excellent restaurant, The Dining Room.
The Cove is on the east coast of Koh Samui, 1.5 km north of Chaweng main town and equidistant from Cheong Mon.
The Cove commands the north end of a secluded beach, bordering onto a forested headland, with a sweeping view of Matlang Island and the majestic curve of Chaweng Bay.
For convenience, Frangipani Cove's location is hard to beat. 15 minutes after collecting your bags, you'll be sitting in the pool, enjoying the warm breeze and a cold cocktail, marvelling at the wide ocean views.
Stroll for 20 minutes along the waterfront and you reach the Chaweng beach, with its four kilometres of soft white sand, water sports and beachfront dining. A car or taxi-bike can whisk you there or back in less than five minutes.
A three minute drive in the opposite direction brings you to the beautiful beaches and laid-back dining options of Cheong Mon
Samui sits off the east coast of the mainland in the tranquil waters of the Gulf of Thailand. It's the country's third largest island (25km long by 21km wide) and despite catering to all the needs of the modern traveller, Samui has maintained its island feel and is famed for its relaxed village charm and laid -back atmosphere.
From the moment you land on Samui, the magic begins.
Quaint trolley buses trundle you from your flight to an open thatched arrival hall and so begins the chilled-out Samui experience.
This stunning, palm-covered island with its gorgeous beaches and turquoise seas has long been a favourite tourist destination. It maintains a unique ambience, and the combination of elite beaches, abundant marine life and dense rainforests, offers an extensive range of holiday activities for every type of visitor.
