El Cids gardens are truly magnificent and are amongst the best gardens you will find in the whole of Thailand. Full of natural flora and wonderful wildlife abounds around the gardens everyday. You will enjoy looking at the colourful birds and feel free to ask our friendly gardener Reynold to take you on a private garden tour - he will explain his work of art, and amaze you with the animals he finds to show you.
The villa is perched high on a hillside overlooking Nathon. This is why our villa is rented exclusively with car hire. Our luxury 4x4 car is on-site and yours to enjoy during your stay at a very reasonable price, making touring of the wonderful sights and attractions of Koh Samui easier and enjoyable.
Included in every guests stay is our complimentary airport pickup and drop-off service. If you are coming by ferry we will also pick you up and return you to your point of departure.

Interaction with Guests
Prior to arrival all guests requests, questions will be answered by me personally (Michael Hughes the owner).
Once you arrive on the island my local team take over including our property Manager Rachel, Nikki our amazing and friendly Housekeeper/Cook, Reynauld and Khun-Ran who tend to the gardens on a daily basis.
Our staff are there to help but if you would like privacy or perhaps a sleep in and a late breakfast just let the staff know or lock the main extrance door and the staff then know you require privacy!
The Ban Makham/Nathon area is mostly a quiet peaceful corner of the island. Beautiful beaches, bars, restaurants and lots of shopping options are just a few minutes away or a 10 minute drive to reach and explore even more of the magic of Koh Samui.
As El Cid Villa is located high on the side of a steep hill we recommend to all our guests to book or request for us to book them suitable care hire. We do not recommend renting Mopeds due to the steep hill. Some guests have done this in the past but we strongly recommend against this option.
The nearest public transport is available from the main road which is 10 min walk down the hill and you can hail one of the many mini buses which cost around USD1.00 per person for a trip to Chaweng or hail a taxi for air-conditioned comfort which would cost around USD15.00 for a oneway trip to Chaweng.
It's a great villa，I really enjoy life here，next time I go ko samui ,I will chose this place again!thank u very much ,wonderful vacation!! Graziemille,molto bello！
What you see is what you get! The villa is as lovely as the pictures you see in the web page. The housekeeper, Nikki and her husband, Reynald made our stay even better. We will definitely recommend this place if you're looking for a relaxing holiday in Koh Samui.
Spent two weeks celebrating Christmas and New years at Michaels villa together with my husband and my parents.
The villa is as luxurious as anybody could dream of, everything from towels formed as butterflies and the magnificent view!
Nikki and Reynold (the staff) are so helpful and caring- wanted to take them back home with me!!
You have to have a car when you are there, we didn´t want to drive ourselves, so Michael fixed a car with driver at a reasonable price.
Michael is a great host, he answered all my questions really quickly and recommended great places to eat.
We had a really wonderful time, would like to go back soon!
As Michael will tell you the Villa is even better in reality than the pictures on the web.
It's a little piece of Paradise in an very busy island.
The house is extraordinary, the bedrooms are big bright and quiet , and the cherry on the cake is when every morning Nikki brings you the breakfast.
Go for it
This Villa is just amazing!!! We where five guys and we all had almost our own room. The view is breathtaking and the pool area is reay nice. The staff is very frindly and very obliging. I would recommend it to everyone, we had a great time in that villa.
I would like to say that, as soon as we were greeted from off the boat by Chai the rest of our Holiday was absolutely fantastic. We have all been to Thailand many times before, but have always stayed in Hotels. But from now on Elcid is the only place I want to stay in Samui. The pictures cannot capture how truly magnificent it is. Every bedroom is fantastic in its own way, and the quality of the build is superb.
We were greeted and well looked after by Nikki and Raymond, who really are fantastic. Nothing was too much trouble for them at all. They wouldn't even let us take our own shopping in from the car. And greeted us every day.
There were 4 of us in total with a bedroom each, and I cannot recommend it enough. I am certainly intending on returning next year. I had forgotten how amazing Thailand is in general, and how friendly the people are.
And as for Michael, He has been great all the way through the booking, with excellent communications over the phone and via e-mail.
I have worked 20+ years in travel and tourism and my favorite hobby is travelling, so I guess you can call me an allround traveller!
I was born in Australia and moved to Europe 12 years ago. I enjoy writing, reading, outdoor activities and most of all I love to travel.
Have just returned from St Maarten a wonderful Island 1/2 Dutch and 1/2 French, can highly recommend it as a clean and fun place to visit in the Caribbean. On this trip I read the wonderful book help by Kathryn Stockett's.
I have been renting rooms and villas and apartments since I can remember, at least 10 years. We have lots of repeat clients and that is the best we can do, make sure everyone feels at home.
