Villa Samprasada (Sanskrit word meaning ‘serenity’) is the place to relax, unwind and recuperate in luxury. The villa’s owner is a Los Angeles television producer and the villa reflects a lifestyle where dreams can become reality.
By Day… The villa presents some wonderful indoor/outdoor lifestyle options; swimming, sunbathing on the comfortable sun-loungers around the pool, sipping on a cool tall drink as you ponder your next move. Or maybe the pure bliss of a traditional Thai massage!
By Night…The villa becomes a wonderland for the senses as the soft mood lighting transforms the villa into a romantic tropical paradise. Imagine the gentle murmur of quiet conversation, the flicker of soft candlelight and the sound of music floating in the air with three zones of outdoor speakers. This villa can become what you want it to be; a private oasis away from the rest of the world or a magnificent entertaining environment.
Villa Samprasada is the perfect hideaway haven for one or two couples. Each couple has their own private accommodation wing with total privacy and space. And each couple's bedroom looks out onto the pool.
As you would expect from a villa of this caliber, almost every detail of the interior and exterior finish is flawless. The villa recently graced the front cover of Koh Samui’s prestigious Real Estate Magazine for its contemporary design. Just this year it graced the cover of Avenida magazine, a Dutch Architectural magazine.
The furniture, the furnishings and the many traditional artifacts displayed throughout, capture the true spirit of Balinese culture and reflect a sense of peace and harmony.

At Villa Samprasada your every need has been considered.
If you play golf, grab your clubs. There are two magnificent courses on the island. The newest course, Bophut Hills is literally one minute’s drive away from the villa.
And the villa is only 5 minutes away from popular Fisherman's Village in Bohput with its many boutique shops and world class seaside restaurants. You have a complete assortment of restaurants here...Italian, French, Mexican, Thai, Steak and Seafood, Indian.... Quoting from a travel guide: 'Fisherman's Village is one of the few places on Samui that retains so much of the island's original Thai-Chinese atmosphere...'
The beach itself encompasses some 2km of white sandy shoreline fringed by coconut palms and the calm waters of the bay make this a popular spot for playing or relaxing...'
And just a short twenty minutes drive you find yourself in Chaweng where the main tourist shopping and nightlife in Koh Samui is located...
Due to the hillside location of the villa you should rent a vehicle. Rental vehicles can be easily arranged to suit your requirements. You can take taxis, but it is easier to rent a vehicle or motorcycle. Due to safety on the island, we always recommend that people rent vehicles over motorbikes.
You are guaranteed a unique holiday experience when you stay here and we hope you love the villa as much as we do.

I am a television commercial producer who lives both in Los Angeles and Koh Samui, but I prefer to spend most of my time between jobs in Koh Samui. Thanks to the internet, Vonage, Skype, cell phones and my Blackberry it became clear to me that I could live anywhere and prep my jobs and then commute to wherever in the world I need to shoot and I found that Koh Samui, with the proximity of Bangkok, is a great place to be. We have amazing friends on the island from all over the world....and friends are always dropping in to stay at the villa. (Note: the photo is taken at Tiger Temple outside of Bangkok)
Rob purchased this villa in 2006
Why Rob chose Bophut Hills
I've traveled to 75+ countries and could have chosen a vacation home almost anywhere, but I found that Thailand was the one country I really missed when I was away...and it always felt great to be back. I started traveling to Koh Samui in 1995 when Chaweng was just a dirt road. In later years I would bounce back and forth on my Thailand trips between Koh Samui and Phuket, but found I much preferred Koh Samui... My wife and I found this house accidentally. There was a misprint on a real estate sign and we thought the house was 1/4 of the price it was actually listed it. However, we didn't know this until we had seen the house and....had fallen in love with it the minute we walked in the door and had to buy it.
What makes this villa unique
I say in the listing that the villa looks just as the pictures represent it to be....a Balinese fantasy home (in Thailand). When the house is lit up at night it is spectacular....really beautiful. And waking up in the morning one of the bedrooms has a straight shot to the sunrise, (depending on the time of the year) which is fantastic. Living here, we entertain a lot and it's a great house for that. And the house is very private, as is most of the pool, and that is a big bonus. The villa is good sized, and I know of many homes that are even larger that don't have the lifestyle aspects that this villa offers. The villa builders also did a great job with the landscaping so that the entire grounds is lush...looking from every room you have a great abundance of lush landscaping (even more lush since the photos were taken). I also appreciate that you can get to Fisherman's Village/Bophut in about five minutes drive and the restaurants there are great (and varied), and the village is fun to walk through and shop. Go have dinner at 'The Shack...' and meet Larry, the owner. It's always a good night there. And if we want to go to Chaweng for even more extensive nightlife, it's only 15 minutes away.
