I have just spent a week in heaven...and it has a name : Shades of Blue in Koh Samui.
I needed a break and opted for the island of Koh Samui in Thailand mid-November. I wanted to enjoy the privacy of a private house and discovered "Shades of Blue".
From the booking process to my arrival at Koh Samui airport everything went flawless and every single request was met with a prompt and positive answer. A driver - fluent in english - met me upon arrival and took me straight to the house in about 10 minutes : there i met Jeremy - a swiss national that fell in love with the island - that greeted me with a huge smile and took me around the house. He also arranged a rental car for me with a delivery at the house at 8.30pm...Swiss efficient !
Stunning - there is no other words. The decoration is top notch : modern and yet cosy with an attention to the smallest details. You'll find incredible sculptures fixed to the walls from the entrance all the way to the master bedroom, everything in this house is of the highest quality, the beds, the linen, the rain showers, Samsung TVs everywhere, even a sonos sound system very easy to use, that will let you listen to your favorite playlist on your iphone or the house ipad's playlist everywhere you go in the house...
You will enjoy a breathtaking seaview from your bedroom (to be precise from your bed...) in total privacy.
The swimming pool with an overflow offers a dramatic view from the living/dining room and a perfect location to enjoy an exotic cocktail prepared at the pool bar.
The rooms are spacious - and it s a general feeling you get from the house - they all offer an en-suite bathroom so that three couples will be fully independent. Should you need additional space, the family room located on the ground floor also offers an extra double bed. A hidden gem is the massage room located on the same level : you will enjoy a wonderful massage in the confort of your private house...
The location of the house is ideal, you will find the renowned six senses resort a few minutes away, one of the most beautiful beach of the island (cristal beach) is a short 15 minutes drive and fisherman s village is 10 minutes away should you look for a bit of animation and restaurants. A great location with security at the entrance of the residence : you could not wish for anything better.
If you want to relax and enjoy an exclusive vacation away from the usual resorts, shades of Blue is the perfect pick and offers a great price/quality ratio : you'll just have to prepare your best chill-out playlist, chose your favorite cocktail and menu and pinch yourself from time to time just to make sure you are not dreaming...
