As we winded up the coast of Koh Samui, we gazed out to the alluring emerald Gulf of Thailand summoning us to dive in for a stimulating swim. We turned into the driveway at Kanda and were awarded with an enthralling artistic view that simply took our breath away. We pulled up to the serene and secluded Kanda Residences, an idyllic island paradise boasting the best Koh Samui villas.

The Location

The location is simply unbeatable. Located just 10-minutes away from the Koh Samui airport, the Kanda Residences are easily accessible to the traveler while still making you feel a world away from reality. The Kanda Residences encompass you in a blanket of seclusion with private cove location.

For those looking for some action in Koh Samui, Kanda Residences is only minutes away from bustling Chaweng.

The Service

The service is completely 5-star at the Kanda Residences. Prior to even arriving at Kanda Residences, the staff made sure to arrange transportation for us from the airport and helped us arrange activities for our stay. While at Kanda Residences, every person greeted us with a helping hand and a smile on their face.

Anthony, the Hotel Manager along with Oh, the Restaurant Manager, made sure that we always had a smile on our face and a drink in our hand. Our favorite drinks and food preferences were quickly engrained in their heads and always made available to us. The team at Kanda Residences treated us like royalty.

The Rooms

The absolute best part of the Kanda Residences are the rooms, each equipped as a private villa. That’s right, every room is a villa, creating a complete lap of luxury for you to marinate in on your holiday. All villas at Kanda Residences feature a private swimming pool, an outdoor sala and sun loungers, open-plan living and dining areas, exotic outdoor showers, a fully equipped kitchen, as well as satellite TV & DVD home theater systems (as if you’re going to want to watch TV on this holiday).

The Restaurant

  • SPA – Choose from a variety of spa treatments at the Wellness Center. We recommend a massage using the Wat Pho method, a massage practice that has been practiced for decades. Let the expert massage therapists at the Wellness Center manipulate pressure points to help with stress, jetlag, sleeping problems, or just to relax.

LANTERN LIGHTING Our most special experience at Kanda Residences came on our last evening. The team organized a Thai lantern lighting on the beach, complete with a private dining experience overlooking the ocean. Our favorite drinks were prepared (lychee martinis and lychee mojitos!) along with savory snackettes. After nibbling on some appetizers, we sat down under a beautiful seaside canopy where we enjoyed one of the most delicious meals. After our meal, we walked down to the ocean where we set off our lanterns, leaving with it hopes and dreams for the future. The ambiance and service was unparalleled, leaving us with the most incredible memory that will stay with us forever.

Overall, Kanda Residences provided 5-star service in a lavish and exotic location. From marinating in the sun next to our private plunge pool to dining on gourmet cuisine at Rockpool to experiencing the sensuous spa at the Wellness Center, Kanda Residences far surpassed any expectation we had with flying colors. We would highly recommend Kanda Residences as the best Koh Samui villas to anyone looking for a unique and intimate experience on the coastal cliffs of Koh Samui.
