Returning to the open style living area you will find threes sofas, together with large flat screen tv, dvd player and a beautiful tropical hardwood floor.  The Reading Room has two armchairs, together with bookcase, filled with a selection of books. Wile away your time reading a good book, or just relaxing, and admiring the fabulous views across to the beautiful ocean and the exquisite surrounding nature of the villa.  Also throughout Villa Emerald, during the evening time, you can see the shining lights of the numerous fishing boats out at sea, with the twinkling stars and shining moon, creating a wonderfully, magical ambiance.  In fact, there is nowhere in Villa Emerald where you will not capture and admire a spectacular ocean view.

Adjoining the living area is also an attractive trellis-style open air retreat with oriental mattresses, where you can lie down, relax and take a siesta, during the heat of the midday sun.  Stepping from here, is a small bridge, which spans the lotus pond with its colourful tropical fish, baby turtles and greenery.

Getting Around

The use of a car or moped is the easiest way to get around. The Villa is located in the quieter part of Koh Samui, unlike the busy north of the island.  Villa Emerald has outstanding ocean views and where you have this, you have a hill to climb.  The villa is positioned in an outstandingly beautiful location, and is a 250 mtr length of steep hill from the entrance at Sitara Retreat.  We therefore strongly recommend the use of the complimentary four wheel drive;  or if you are both very confident riders, two mopeds, which we can provide for you in your rental price, and have waiting at the villa on your arrival.  It is a condition of Sitara Retreat that if you hire a car it will need to be a four wheel drive. Once you have booked we can arrange the complimentary, automatic 4 x 4 Suzuki Vitara for your use during your stay at Villa Emerald. 

With the villa being located in a quieter part of the island, driving can be a more pleasurable experience.  To go to the beach, restaurants, local attractions etc, we do strongly recommend the use of the complimentary vehicle which we provide for you with this booking.  However, If you do not feel a confident driver, and do not wish to make use of the car, there are several private hire car companies (of which we can give you telephone numbers so that you can make your own arrangements) that can pick you up at the entrance of Sitara, which is a 4 or 5 minute walk down the hill.  Should you decide to use the private hire facility this will be at your own cost.
There is private parking for a vehicle at the Villa, via steps up to the top car park.

The use of a reliable runaround automatic Suzuki Vitara 4x4, is included as complimentary with this 1 bedroom rental.


The southern part of the island where the villa is located remains pretty much unspoiled, especially compared to the north. It still has that rustic charm appeal that the whole of Samui boasted years ago. We are frequently told by guests they find the Thai people in this southern part of the island extremely hospitable, and welcoming.  In the north where it is far more crowded and touristy on the island there is not always the opportunity to discover the true warmth and charm of the local people. The beaches on the south remain undeveloped, due mainly to the shallow coastline. If you like to explore you can still find areas where you have the beach to yourself, and never too far away you will find a Thai restaurant where you can enjoy true authentic local dishes.

We provide complimentary pick up for guests from the Samui airport / ferry terminal / hotel to Villa Emerald, and a return journey at the end of the visit (one in each direction).
