We had very high expectations with this property, and they were exceeded in every respect. Khun Wat and Khun Kung are incredibly friendly, attentive and warm local hosts. They were especially great with our kids. Martin the orwner shared useful local tips for restaurants and bars. The villa itself is immaculately maintained. We ate at the villa 5 of 6 nights and the food was exceptional every night. The house is well-equipped with multiple Bluetooth sound systems, 4K projector etc. And the view is….stunning. Altogether a magnificent stay! Thanks a million!
It was a great villa. It started well, in that the host Martin was very helpful with our initial enquiries and continued to update us on various COVID related matters and then answered all our enquiries as and when raised – a very positive introduction. The villa itself was all we expected from the descriptions and more; we have to specifically mention Wat and Kuhn; a very friendly and helpful team and who went out of their way to anticipate as well as action our needs and wishes. Their cooking was the best we had on the island – and make sure you do not believe Wat when he says he does not play pool well. The views from the villa pool are exceptional and a nice way to wind down at the end of the day – with one of Wat’s cocktails and some music in the background. Lamai Beach and BoaBab Restaurant there were the family favourites and the cooking there (lunch) is varied and good, and the massages there were a good way to de-stress- not that there was much stress around. Do take up Wat’s suggested day trip on a boat – around some of the islands with some fishing and water skiing thrown in; we also enjoyed the rifle range just before Lamai Beach, which was unexpected but great fun, and the waterfalls are a great place to cool off! We cannot recommend Martin and his team enough and the villa is a perfect base.
INCREDIBLE stay in Samui – extremely private and comfortable, and lovely staff. Photos cannot do the views justice!
Killer location, cool host, and great staff. Stay here and enjoy the best Ko Samui has to offer.
Everything about this villa is fantastic- the house, the location, the view. But most importantly, the incredible staff who work there and go out of their way to make every stay an amazing experience. I felt like royalty the week I spent there, and will go back at the first opportunity! Don’t miss out on this!
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!
We stayed for 30 days and each day was amazing and unique. The villa is beautiful and has everything you could want, but it’s the hospitality thats some of the best we’ve ever experienced. Khun Watt and Khun Kee are incredible humans and we miss them dearly. The villa feels very private, but there are great restaurants, bars and beaches a short drive away.
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.
