The house was a home for home for myself and my family. Airport transfers worked a dream and the in house staff were simply perfect. Please ask them to cook Thai dishes for you- better than any bar or restaurant on the island. We will be back!

Amazing villa

This villa has got the WOW factor,we have stayed in many villas in Thailand and also in Koh Samui but Sunnybanks is outstanding. As soon as you enter through the front door and look out through the patio glass doors the view is amazing. The villa is up a slight hill but it would need to be to experience the view. My husband has slight walking difficulties so we always needed transport from the villa, the taxi company used by the villa management Sunshine Samui Villas was excellent they were always on time wherever we were on the Island, they were more expensive but that was acceptable to usThe live in couple Oi and her husband Por were simply wonderful, she was there every day and you really did not notice her they keep the villa spotless and would do anything to help, bringing groceries, washing and helping with my husbands mobility scooter when we needed to go out. We had a meal in the villa we wish we could have had more but time would not allow, it is a must if you are staying here Por does the cooking he is a fantastic cook and it was a banquet as there were 4 of us. The villa itself is huge and immaculate we were only 4 adults but the bedrooms were very spacious and can easily accommodate at least 8. The pool is an infinity pool which is just fabulous to dip into to cool down and admire the view. When returning to the villa in the evening we would sit outside on the large sofas with the fans on and just chill out. This villa is outstanding and has it all and we cannot wait to return.

Better than expected

We tried not to expect anything going to this trip. (Afraid we might be disappointed). That is not the case. Check in process by the manager was efficient and fast. The facility was ok (a bit outdated). Lucky we brought a lot of kitchen equipment (chopping board, knives, blenders, etc.) otherwise we would never be able to cook. We decided to cook ourselves. The staff was friendly and discreet. A bit surprised that the staff reluctantly agreed to cook for 1 breakfast for us (We were told the staff can cook breakfast and lunch free of charge since we bought all grocery already). We ended up cooking anyway. Overall, it was a good getaway with our friends and kids. Some hiccups though, the power kept tipping off in the evening. It can be easily fixed by switching the breaker but still a bit nervous, it could turn off in the middle of the night. Also, it seemed to be a normal habit for everyone recently. Our driver picking us up from the airport was talking on the phone while driving.

Beautiful resort in lamai

The pictures are wonderful but definitely even better when you arrive. Sunny Banks is much larger then the pictures make out and surprising the resort is on one level. My mom has mobility issues but with Sunny Banks being all on one level and zero steps she had no issues at all. The resort has large and spacious bedrooms and 3 of the 4 bedrooms have picture perfect views of the sea. This resort is located up a short but not steep drive up a hill and stops at the end of the road. It appears that you wouldn't be coming up this roadway unless you lived here with the dead end road. The sand and people on the beach are visible from the pool and terrace. We did rent a vehicle but unless you intend on circling around the island you can walk to the main strip within 10 minutes and there is a large grocery store within a 5 minute walk from the resort. Can't remember the name of the grocery store but it was big, clean and carried many foreign foods and fresh fruits. There was also a nite market on the main strip in Lamai and they offered local handmade trinkets, linen, sunglasses and food food food. We had no idea about this market and walked into it one evening after dinner. According to one of the vendors there are nite markets set around the island on different day. Overall the resort is clean, child friendly, mobility friendly and could accommodate 10 adults with ease. There is amble chairs, cold cold air conditioning and and plenty of areas to simply lounge. Lastly, the management did offer other services such as baby sitting and meals at an additional fee but we didn't opt for any of those options.

Sunny Banks Koh Samui

The resort is clean, gorgeous, perfect for a family, perched high up and giving you a fantastic view of the sea. Very close to the beach, Makro for groceries, the Lamai strip for restaurants and a British International school. The swimming pool was big, had built in benches, our 2 year old was able to splash around with little worry and the plus was relaxing on the premium sun loungers and outdoor furniture. Each bedroom had its own bathroom and the master suites both had jacuzzis. Although we spent most time in the pool the jacuzzi was rarely used but our kids did turn off/on the jets when used. The kitchen was modern, fully stocked and functional but there was a summer kitchen too. Usually, we don't cook much on vacations but with the 2 kitchens and Makro 100m away we prepared home cooked meals on a occasion. Our stay was for a week but in the future we would likely stay for 2 weeks or more. The resort was relaxing and we could definitely of stayed longer if had the time. The early morning sunrise and sun set is beautiful. Friesen family

Located on the southwestern coastline of Koh Samui in Lamai, the villa has a perfect environment that really suits a retreat like holiday. The location at Lamai is just 2km from the beach, and a 10-minute drive to Namuang with Chaweng a 15-minute drive away. Namuang is famous for its tropical beauty and a tall waterfall that is one of the islands most visited attractions.

Lamai Beach is Samui's second-largest resort area after Chaweng. It is quieter and less bustling than its big sister, but still with plenty of accommodation, dining and shopping options, and some great spas and tourist sites to explore.

The general atmosphere is laid back and Lamai has slightly older, and by extention cheaper tourist facilities than Chaweng, although there is some indication that the area is slowly being rejuvenated. Along with the rest of Samui, there is a steady trend away from the 'cheap and cheerful' toward smarter, high-end accommodation and dining facilities and new resorts in Lamai
