Guests at Villa Samira enjoy the Thai hospitality and warm service of a dedicated team of full-time staff including a villa manager, chef and housekeeping.
Samira’s advantage as a private villa is that service may be customised to your needs, whether you require staff to be visibly on hand throughout the day or prefer a more discreet level of service for privacy.
The villa’s full-time, English-speaking manager is available to help plan and arrange in-villa dining and service requirements and ensure that guests have everything they need.
Villa Samira’s friendly assistant manager provides additional assistance to guests in support of the villa manager’s duties.
The villa chef is on site daily (with flexible hours) to prepare breakfast, lunch and dinner. A delicious range of Thai cuisine and simple Western dishes are customised to guest tastes and desires.
One housekeeper looks after all the cleaning and tidying duties at the villa, and also assists with kitchen and dining service.
Staff from the villa management company provide pool and garden service two times per week.
Villa Samira is kept safe and secure 24 hours a day by estate security staff working rotating shifts.
A highlight of staying at Villa Samira is its delicious cuisine, all prepared with flair by your personal chef.
With a suggestion menu brimming with Thai dishes and a small selection of Western fare, dining here offers a good chance to discover Thailand’s flavourful food at your own pace. The chef and villa manager are here to advise and help you plan your meals, and dishes can be customised to accommodate any special dietary requirements or personal preferences.
Not sure if you can handle the spices of a Tom Yum soup or green curry? No problem. Just let the chef know your tolerance for heat and they will adjust accordingly.
Groceries and beverages are charged at market price plus a 20% handling fee. Guests will be requested to provide cash in advance to cover provisions, and the staff will do the shopping and keep the receipts for reference. To give the chef and staff adequate time to prepare, guests are encouraged to plan meals at least a day in advance.
With its expansive indoor and outdoor living spaces, large swimming pool and friendly staff, Villa Samira offers a fun-filled and relaxing retreat for families with children of all ages.
Kids will love the freedom to explore the villa and enjoy Samira’s modern entertainment facilities – especially its media room with a large projector screen.
The pool terrace is a great gathering spot for families, with the 17-metre pool giving generous splash-around space, plus an attached jacuzzi for those in need of a revitalising soak, though younger children will need to be watched closely around these open pool areas.
Inside the villa are plenty of comfy and fun kid-friendly spaces, with the above-mentioned media room a big highlight, as well as the quality Apple TV music and movie system in the living room. Adjacent to the media room is a games room with a custom-designed pool table and TV entertainment system, which opens to the poolside dining sala.
Having a modern kitchen as well as a personal chef to prepare all meals is an obvious benefit for families at Villa Samira. Whether you’re travelling with a baby or some fussy eaters, you’ll have the choice of preparing meals for the kids yourself or discussing your family’s dietary needs with the chef, who will ably accommodate most requests. The villa menu features a number of child-friendly dishes including fried rice, pad Thai noodles, hearty soups and tasty satay chicken skewers.
A high chair and a selection of books, games and toys are freely available for guests. Other kids’ equipment, such as cots and car seats, can be hired from reputable local companies on request for a small additional charge.
Villa Samira reflects Thailand’s welcoming attitude towards children, and guests of all ages will delight in the staff’s warm hospitality. If you fancy a night out or a day exploring without the kids, the villa manager can arrange a babysitter (extra charge applies).

A private in-villa massage with the healing touch of a local spa practitioner is an experience not to be missed.
Villa Samira has its own private spa room to enjoy a quiet treatment in air-conditioned comfort, or if you’d prefer to unwind in the tropical breeze, simply arrange for a session on a poolside sunbed.
Here’s a sample of what’s on the menu, but check with your villa manager for rates and a full list of treatments.
An energising and rejuvenating healing technique, traditional Thai massage combines the deep kneading of pressure points, stretching and bending to stimulate flow along the ‘meridians’ of the body without using oil.
Foot reflexology is a natural healing art based on the principle that there are reflexes in the feet that correspond to every part of the body. Through application of pressure on these reflexes tension is relieved and circulation improved leaving you feeling balanced.
Our hands and feet work hard for us every day but rarely get the attention they deserve. Treat them to a manicure or pedicure, with the added bonus of a hand or foot massage.
With attention-demanding views of the Andaman Sea, world-class facilities and lavish setting, the eight-bedroomed Villa Saan is a fabulous holiday abode just next door to Villa Samira. Rent both villas for a spectacular 14 bedroom offering, ideal for large groups vacationing together.Explore
