Samui Villa Lawana


          The first thing you see when you walk into Villa Lawana is the charming lobby (arranged like an outdoor living room) with a giant overhanging carved with Chinese characters, welcoming you into the Fu family home.
          The intention of this BeGray-designed resort is to hearken to the nascent days of Koh Samui, back when about 90% of the island’s residents emigrated from Hainan province of China. Walking through Villa Lawana, one feels the impression of a village rather than your average resort. The rooms of the upstairs Mui and downstairs Sayam suites are reminiscent of shop-houses that used to be found everywhere on Samui, with home-style touches providing adornment throughout.



         The Villa Goe Bun and Grand Poolside Villas share a common swimming pool between five rooms, making for a pleasant compromise of relative privacy, yet enough space to swim proper laps. For those desiring even more luxury, the
two-bedroom Presidential Suite Villa, intended for the private use of the resort owners, is also available at times to guests.
          The resort’s La Malila Spa takes its name from a local nursery rhyme, and the soothing Traditional Asian and Ayurvedic Indian treatments administered in palatial spa rooms. For a hedonistic half-day, the Malila Signature Massage (incorporating foot spa, Shirodara warm oil therapy, and aqua refreshing hydration) is the ultimate all-over indulgence.

          From OceanKiss restaurant, diners are treated to a sweeping view overlooking northern Chawaeng Beach, with Koh Matlang within wading distance. For a nigh-class fine-dining alternative, the tables of SkyHug seem to be perched in the trees.
          The location is guite convenient; only ten minutes from Samui airport, but a short walk (or crawl) to the main drag of Chaweng Beach.
