Ban Mekkala is a newly built villa designed to accentuate the tropical lifestyle.
The main entrance of the villa leads into the very grand and open-plan living space, which contains the enormous gourmet kitchen, a 12 seater dining table, and a beautifully Thai furnished living room with state of the art audio and visual systems. This open space allows not only the sea breeze to welcome you into this cavernous living area, but also allows for panoramic and breathtaking views of the ocean.

The best way to leave this stunning living space is through the large, covered balcony that has stairs that connect you to the inner courtyard below that overlooks a waterfall feature. This leads you to the six bedrooms that are on this floor, which are all ensuite with large walk-in showers and bathtubs. The main building on the ground floor houses two of these bedrooms, in addition to a steam room. Moving down the well maintained and beautifully landscaped garden, there will be four more bedroom pavilions, two of which are blessed with their own private shower in an outdoor courtyard. The master bedroom is of course the largest and most grand of them all, with not only an element of privacy and seclusion, but also has a definite luxury to it, with it's own surround sound system.

It is on this end of the estate that you will find the large, private swimming pool that has it's own sunken recliners so you can recline in the pool whilst reading a book or enjoying your beautiful surroundings. There is also an outdoor dining pavilion, so you can enjoy a meal prepared from the barbecue pit. Beyond the pool, you will find the tranquil and serene Laem Sor Beach.

Ban Mekkala is the ultimate tropical getaway providing the utmost luxuries so that it's guests will truly enjoy their time in Koh Samui.

I can say without any hesitation that my stay at Ban Mekkala was the best holiday I've had. A large group of 11 of us stayed here over Christmas and New Year and the house quite exceeded all of my expectations. Beautifully situated in a quiet and peaceful part of the island, the house was tranquil and luxurious in equal measures. Separate sleeping quarters gave us the privacy we needed but big communal spaces meant we could comfortably relax together. The house has fantastic facilities, including one of the most beautiful swimming pools I've ever seen, and the moment you step off the property you find yourself on an exquisite beach, which is calm and unspoilt.

11 of us spent 2 weeks over Xmas and new year in this wonderful villa by the sea in the quiet south of Koh Samui. Beautifully designed with care and no little artistry, this is a simply fabulous place to unwind, rest, heal and restore. Lots of spaces to gather communally or read on your own, the inviting sea before you, the infinity pool is quite fabulous and, at around 20m in length, is able to accommodate lap swimming. What raises this villa from the merely fabulous to the simply sublime are the charming, helpful and thoughtful staff who discreetly tend to your every need: the fabulous cooking of Tum the chef; the lovely cleaners Sai and Kai; the helpful driver Eak; the cheerful and ever smiling Coco who tends the garden; but rising above even all of these wonderful people is the delightful Fai, the villa manager, who made our holiday the success it was by her patient answering of all our many questions and requests we bombarded her with on a daily basis. Thank you Fai. Thank you Ban Mekkala for the lingering memories.

We had an amazing time at Crystal Villa. We had a group of 10 girls and everyone enjoyed our stay at the villa. The view is amazing (with glimps of sunset) as we are on the hill top. The pool feels like an infinity pool with great view. Most importantly, the staff are all very friendly and excellent cooks. We went out for a couple of meals and still felt the food at the villa are better than the food at the restaurant, so we ended up eating at the villa most of the time. Great way to spend your vacation!

My extended family of 9 stayed in this wonderful Villa for one week in June 2014. This turned out to be the proverbial "vacation of a lifetime". The Villa and staff exceeded our high expectations. The Villa manager, Fi, and her staff responded to all of our needs and desires. We had virtually all of our meals at the Villa, and I must say, the Thai and western food was absolutely superb. We decided not to rent a car, and instead used the Villa driver and van for excursions on the island. This was a really good move, and I'm glad that I did not have to drive in sometimes hectic road conditions. Fi accompanied us on all trips, including several to a tailor, where we all had custom fitted suits and dresses made. The outdoor cinema, which uses a projector and a large roll down screen, is terrific as we enjoyed movies most evenings via our iPhones and iPads using Apple TV. Before arriving at the Villa, we stayed several days in Bangkok. We never saw a military person or a demonstration, and always felt secure. Bangkok hotels and restaurants were almost empty, and we were treated like royalty. In my opinion, this is a wonderful time to visit Thailand.

This villa is a very rare find....amazing beachfront which is perfect for long walks and a lush and spacious property perfect for a holiday get-away. We stayed with three other couples and all of our children....relaxing and many activities at your fingertips. The living area both near the kitchen and beside the pool is very comfortable with friendly staff who are excellent cooks. We look forward to returning!! Many thanks again
