This is a top tier AirBnb experience. The property is clean, well maintained with great amenities. Most of all the view is simply unforgettable. Having an on site driver and cook made the experience that much better. The food was excellent and at better prices than you’ll find anywhere. The driver does so much more than get you from point A to point B. He provided excellent recommendations for activites and helped with bookings to ensure we got a great price. He also provided great pictures throught the vacation, a pleasant surprise. This may be the nest AirBnb experience we have ever had!

The Lookout can be summarized in one word, WOW. If you are looking for a place to stay in Ko Samui, stop your search now and book! Seriously. This is not just a magnificent home, this is a full blown experience. First of all, the place is absolutely beautiful, and looks exactly like the pictures. The view from the pool is breathtaking, and the temperature perfect. WiFi connectivity is great throughout the house (even outside) and you can connect your Spotify to the outdoor pool speakers. The location was perfect for us. It was located about 30 minutes from the more touristy areas, but just a 5 minute drive to the nearest beach. What makes The Lookout truly special are Kiki and Wat. Kiki is a phenomenal cook (like the best ever), and she will make you whatever you ask for, at any time. She probably cooked us over 50 spring rolls!! Every morning we woke up to the most amazing breakfast with all the food she had picked up for us. Wat is your full time personal driver, camera man, cocktail maker, music player, and full time smile machine 🙂 What we truly loved the most about The Lookout was getting to know Wat and Kiki. They are such wonderful people and an absolute joy to be around. When you leave, it will be hard not to say that Wat and Kiki are your friends! For anyone concerned about privacy, Wat and Kiki have their own private quarters that you never see. If you ever needed something Wat was just a text away. Book now!

Martin’s villa is simply amazing. So beautiful and has everything you could possibly need. The staff are out of this world and make it the holiday of a lifetime. Khun Kee’s food is delicious and she was so thoughtful and lovely. Khun Wat is so very kind, helpful and always there to guide and help with anything you need. He always seems to know what you need before you do! And he is magic with the children. We wish we could have stayed longer.

The best villa in Koh Samui

We are absolutely gutted that we have had to cancel our trip to The Lookout as we were scheduled to be travelling there in 3 weeks. I have visited this villa before with my family and from both experiences of being there and booking this time round, I can’t recommend enough!

From the whole booking process, Martin was very efficient and helped with all our needs. From sending restaurant guides, must-see tourist destinations and many more, he made us feel welcomed before we even got there. Given the current global crisis, Martin was supportive throughout, even with the cancellation. He puts his guests first no matter what.

From being at the Villa previously, Wat and Kee are the BEST hosts you could ever ask for!!! The most attentive, kind and caring people. Nothing is ever too much trouble for them and make the whole villa experience world class. I would go back to the villa just to see them again!

The villa itself is stunning inside and out with amazing views. We can’t wait to go back there once everything has cleared and back to normal. As stated before, we can’t recommend The Lookout enough! Thankyou Martin, Wat and Kee for everything

Effortless luxury

If we could sum up our experience at The Lookout in Koh Samui in two words, it word be effortless luxury. From the airport pickup to drop off and everything in between, it was just taken care of for us. Even before we left Heathrow, Martin (the owner) had sent us helpful suggestions of places to visit and to where to eat and drink.

Wat and Kee are a brilliant pair, with Kee’s lovely cooking and Wat’s ability to source tailor made experiences at the drop of a hat (and at a decent price too!) Having a driver to take you around the island means there was huge flexibility of what we did and when. Then we had Wat’s great photos sent to us each day. He managed to anticipate what we needed before we did!

The villa itself is very beautiful and tastefully decorated with lots of local Thai artefacts. The beds are very comfortable and the lounge has a very modern OLED TV with Netflix should you want it.

Chilling in the infinity pool with one of Wat’s great Pina Coladas allows you to forget normal life and just enjoy the lifestyle. We’ve already contacted Martin (the owner) to book again for next year.

The Villa had amazing views and we loved the pool and outdoor area! But what really made the holiday was Khun Wat and Khun Kee!! They made us feel very welcome and comfortable; their hospitality was outstanding. Kee’s cooking was AMAZING, it opened our eyes to so many things that we would have never eaten. We are really going to miss her! Wat was an absolute legend. He was not only our driver, but a photographer, mixologist and also organised day trips, and showed us around to local markets and restaurants. Both Wat and Kee made the holiday very enjoyable and always put smiles on our faces!

We had a lovely stay at Martin’s villa for 10 days. The villa itself is extremely comfortable and clean but what really sets it apart from other places is the hospitality of Khun Wat and Khun Kee. We enjoyed amazing home-cooked Thai food prepared by Khun Kee and Khun Wat was always on hand to drive us around, offer suggestions for activities and make all the arrangements (including for a snorkeling trip to an island offshore of Koh Samui). Martin also provided a very helpful guide to suggested places to eat in advance of our visit. Thank you all for our memorable stay on Koh Samui!

We spent the most amazing time at the villa. It’s incredibly clean and stylish, the view is great and the pool area is perfect to relax and chill. However, what makes the stay at the villa outstanding and unforgettable, is the presence of Khun Wat and Khun Kee. They are both so caring and helpful that you won’t miss anything during the stay. They cook really great fresh food, they are fantastic with kids, they take you to beautiful beaches or any other location on the island and help with anything you may need. We absolutely loved it there and it was the perfect location for our family with two small kids.
