On Koh Samui’s laid-back north coast, Fair House Villas & Spa is a tropical retreat with direct access to Maenam Beach. The 72 villas are set in lush gardens dotted with palm trees and have traditional steep tile roofs. Inside you’ll find polished floors, carved wood, modern artwork and floor-to-ceiling windows. All but the Garden Villas feature four-poster beds, and each comes with a spacious bathroom with a walk-in shower and a full tub. Balconies come standard, but the Sunset Suite features a terrace with a Jacuzzi overlooking the ocean. Kick back by the two-tier pool and order a drink during the daily happy hour, or head to the Pandanus Spa for an organic treatment (many of the ingredients are grown in the resort’s garden). Dine on Thai fare at the Bre-Eze restaurant, or ask the team to organize a private dinner or barbecue on the beach.
In the Area
The nearby Fisherman’s Village in Bophut offers strolling, shopping and dining opportunities. A visit to Samui demands at least one snorkeling or diving trip; the water’s warmth and clarity, and the variety of tropical fish, are simply too good to pass up. Koh Tao and Koh Nang Yuan are both known for their amazing underwater worlds. Snorkeling is also offered on daytrips to Ang Thong Marine Park, which comprises more than 40 limestone islands and plenty of empty beaches on which to chill for a few hours.
How to Get There
We spent a week in this hotel. Resort is peaceful and very comfortable. Location is quite in nice area with calm sea. Villas are clean and large. Trip includes the breakfast with many options of cuisine. Staff was very kind especially, Aea care about the gest a lot. Just the gym has a very old and crash equipment.
My fiancé and I visited for seven nights using a Scoopon deal that included free daily cocktails and 30min massages per person. The massages were so relaxing, 30mins was enough for someone who absolutely enjoys massages.
All the staff at the resort were lovely, polite and would do anything to help make the stay more relaxing. I am so glad I decided to stay here!
The hotel looks like it was something back in the days, but is not good anymore. Everything seems old and dusty. The staff doesn’t speak English not any other language. We seemed to disturb them when we arrived. They took 7 hours to separate two beds in the room, the moved my scooter and it took me 30 minutes to find someone who understood the problem and 30 lire to find it. The most expensive AND most terrible hotel that I had in Thailand.
Absolutely never again
We (2 adults with baby girl) spent almost a week at the Fair House Villas and Spa in a Garden Villa. Overall, we liked it very much. The Thai-style property is not new, but in fairly good shape.
The room size is fine with a small terrace. The garden is beautiful and kept clean. Same goes for the pool area. Restaurant team is incredibly kind and loves kids. Team is doing everything to make your stay comfortable. Food (including breakfast) is good, though not memorable.
Location is a bit remote which is fine with the baby but you would not want to stay there for weeks I guess. Our five day trip with journeys to Fisherman’s Village and Mae Nam was fine, though.
We liked the family friendly atmosphere and that it is not a huge resort with hundreds of guest marching in for breakfast every morning.
Very nice hotel, with beautiful villas surrounded by gardens and trees, as well as water-front villas with private plunge pool. The villas and their decoration are quite good, and the private garden/terrace/plunge pool very enjoyable. Pool area is quite good (agreed with some comments that it could do with some maintenance), with a nice pool bar. The beach-front restaurant is very enjoyable, and the service is very personal and friendly. Some dishes such as curries are excellent, while others not so much so. The breakfast is not very good (bad croissants, not much in terms of muesli and similar healthy foods), but they make up for it with the cooking station, which is quite good. The view out to see is great, but surprisingly you cannot do that much beach life: the hotel has been built right on the sand, up to the water, and if you take a walk to the right or left of it you will find some obstacles such as concrete from other buildings, and in any case the walk is not that enjoyable (lots of rubbish, some pretty crummy-looking buildings and hostels...). Hotel has surfboards and canoes for paddling in the sea. Overall very nice. They need to upgrade their gym area, though.
