Villa Akuvara

About The Space
Let's Get You Booked In

Akuvara, in the ancient Sanskrit language, means “The Sea” and this absolute beachfront Samui villa has as much sea as anyone could wish for. Akuvara lounges next to the island’s most delightful yet quietest beach, Lipa Noi. With its ultra-modern design featuring huge expanses of glass to make the most of the view, the villa can sleep up to eight people in four pavilions. It’s perfect for families or for groups of friends intent on a lazy tropical beach holiday, with five-star meals made to order and every whim met by the superbly trained staff with their big welcoming smiles.

This Samui villa is a gem sitting on the southern stretch of Koh Samui’s most beautiful yet quietest beach, Lipa Noi. Akuvara looks west across the Gulf of Siam to the Five Islands and the mainland beyond. It is six minutes from the nearest town, Nathon (good for some easy basic shopping) and 50 minutes from Chaweng, the island’s main nexus for shopping, dining and nightlife. The airport is 50 minutes’ drive, while the car ferry jetty is 6 minutes away.

Koh Samui is not a big island – it’s just under 230 square kilometres, and much of that is still pristine forest-covered hillside – but it offers a wealth of fun and interesting things to do. Let your villa manager know what sort of activities you’re interested in and he or she will help guide your choices and can also arrange transport to take you there.
