Villa Gardenia is a luxury five-bedroom villa set within the Miskawaan Resort complex of nine beachfront villas on Koh Samui’s unspoilt north coast. Backed by tropical palms and fringed by the white sands of Maenam Beach, the turquoise waters of the Gulf of Thailand are literally just a stone’s throw away.
Each villa within the complex enjoys its own individual features, layout and, most importantly, privacy – however, it benefits from the added-value services Miskawaan Resort provides. This can be anything from sourcing a personal chauffeur, babysitter or masseuse, restaurant reservations to arranging for a chef to prepare an authentic Thai meal within the comfort of your own villa. Each villa has its own Villa Manager so you can rest assured that you will be well taken care of.
With three Double and two Twin rooms, Villa Gardenia would be the perfect property for multiple families holidaying together. The villa provides fantastic communal facilities, but also offers plenty of space for that all-important privacy. With spacious living and dining areas, beautiful garden and pool and direct beach access, this promises to be the perfect setting for a relaxing and memorable family holiday.
The interior is fresh and neutral, with all rooms benefiting from sliding doors leading out onto the lush tropical gardens. The exposed timber ceilings and polished teak or marble floors give a sense of tropical luxury, whilst maintaining a bright and airy feel. Dark wood furniture, local artwork and colourful soft furnishings give a uniquely Thai feel to the villa.
Property Type: Private Villa / Bedrooms: 5 / Sleeps: 10
- Bedrooms: There are three Double bedrooms and two Twin bedrooms. Two of the Double rooms feature exposed timber ceilings and polished teak floors, and have direct access to the pool via sliding doors. The three remaining bedrooms are located at the rear of the property. All of the bedrooms benefit from ensuite marble bathrooms featuring a double vanity and indoor shower.The Master Suite is located at the front of the villa and commands spectacular views of the beach and out to sea through its floor-to-ceiling windows. Sliding doors lead out onto a covered verandah with breakfasting table and day bed. It also has a TV with satellite TV and DVD player, and stereo system, and ensuite bathroom with both indoor shower and bathtub.
- Lounge & Dining Area: The living room takes pride of place at the end of the swimming pool and is set under a high vaulted ceiling with exposed timber beams, and marble flooring. There is lounge seating to comfortably seat ten people, and a 50” LCD TV with satellite TV and DVD player. Floor-to-ceiling windows give views down the swimming pool and out to sea, while carefully placed traditional artefacts give a distinct Thai feel to the room.The dining room lies adjacent to the pool and is set under a high vaulted ceiling with exposed timber beams, and marble flooring. It features a large round dining table that seats ten, making this an ideal space for social and family occasions.An additional living space adjoins the dining room and is home to another ten-seater dining table, which boasts uninterrupted views over the garden out to sea, making it the ideal spot for breakfast or lunch with a view. This area also features an outdoor bar and stereo system. The dining table could be moved to one side to create a playroom for the children if required – as there are sliding doors to this room.
- Kitchen: The modern, fully fitted, Western style kitchen leads off the indoor dining area. The kitchen is a good size with plenty of workspace, wooden cupboards, black granite worktops and full Siemens appliances. Miskawaan Resort can arrange for a chef to prepare authentic Thai meals within the comfort of your own villa, if required, allowing you more time to relax with the family.
- Outside & Pool Area: Villa life centres around the large blue-tiled saltwater swimming pool, which is lined with towering palm trees and offers views out to sea. Steps lead into the shallow end of the pool near the living room, making for easy access for little ones.Beach frontage at Villa Gardenia amounts to a generous 27m, meaning spectacular views out to sea from the pool and communal areas. Access to the beach is via a gate next to the pool. An outdoor toilet saves adults and children dripping wet footprints through the bedrooms, while the outdoor shower next to the beach access gate allows you to wash off all that sand before venturing indoors.
- Useful Tips: There is no fencing around the pool and so care should be taken with young children.All rooms have direct garden/pool access via sliding doors, so special care would need to be taken if holidaying with small children.Only the Master Bathroom has a bathtub, which may prove problematic if holidaying with small children.There is a lotus pond with stepping stones between the two dining areas so need to keep a watchful eye on this area. Both rooms do have sliding doors so they can be closed to contain wandering toddlers.

Maenam is on the north coast of Samui Island. Maenam Beach is a 5km stretch of beach fringed with coconut trees, facing Koh Phangan to the North and is not as developed as Samui’s east coast resort towns. Maenam is a quieter area to spend your holiday and is ideally suited to families. Whilst it is more peaceful, it does have a dining and shopping scene and is still conveniently located to the towns of Bophut and Chaweng which offer more hustle and bustle should you wish to experience that.
