The space

El Cid private villa Koh Samui is a unique blend of contemporary European architecture infused with the perfect balance of Asian/Thai furnishings, fittings and art. A stay at EL Cid is a holiday you will never forget! From the moment you enter our property and proceed along the private driveway to the villa you will feel relaxed and this will last long after your stay comes to an end!

Our split level 4 bedroom luxury villa provides you with space to unwind and chill down. The villa provides spacious living areas all of which are open plan. The bedrooms each have their own character and flair...and all are filled with natural light and room to breath.

Features to highlight include; floor to ceiling sliding glass doors affording guests panoramic views of the majestic and well maintained gardens, natural tropical rainforest behind the villa and stunning views across the gulf of Thailand.

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 we strongly recommend all guests to rent a car. Up to 2 adults + 1 child a sedan vehicle is suitable. If you have more than 3 adults in your group we STRONGLY recommend a 4x4 or SUV vehicle!

We have an EXCLUSIVE car hire rental partner with top of the range 4x4/ SUV vehicles starting from a daily price of 1,800 Baht (car hire delivery to the villa FREE OF CHARGE)! Once we confirm your villa booking, we will be happy to organize your car rental just send us a message.

All guests must agree to either an airport, ferry port or alternative pick up point transfer service to the villa at an additional fee of 2,000 Baht per one way!

If you plan to drive to the villa you will require one of our staff to guide you from any given pickup/meeting point. This service is also mandatory (unless you have our transfer service booked). This service incurs a onetime only fee of 1,000 Baht.

Our villa is very private and therefore almost impossible to find due to there being no street signs or even a name of a road. This is the reason why the transfer or guided arrival service are mandatory and nonnegotiable!

Interaction with guests

Once you arrive on the island my local team take over: Reynold and Nikki are your hosts from check-in until check-out. Prior to the completion of the villa build Reynold and Nikki joined us as our on-site staff and remain with us today!

Reynold is our designated Property Manager/ Gardener/ BBQ Guru.

Nikki (Reynold's wife) is our Housekeeper/ Cook. She is a caring, warm and friendly lady who is an amazing cook!

Khun-Ran who tends to the gardens on a daily basis is very shy but might pop-up between the ferns from time to time.

Last but not least Terri and her husband Adrian. We call them our 'Special Services and VIP care team'! If during your stay there is a special event taking place, it will most likely be this pair who make sure no details are missed and your special moment is memorable for all the right reasons.

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 one thing that will forever be first in our memories when we talk our wonderful Samui holiday is this amazing villa, and the hospitality and first class service by Reynold and Nikki! Don't believe the photos of the villa on the website.... Its way better!! Better than any hotel you can imagine Reynold and Nikki have been so accommodating even when the were 9 of us and went out of their way to make our stay such a memorable and pleasant one Their standard of service is world class! Reynolds braving the storm to help us BBQ our dinner and Nikki making sure the dinner arrangements was set up, was better than what we could have imagined Thank you Reynold and Nikki for making our holiday that extra special

This was a great experience overall. Three things need to mention here: 1. Great modern villa with clean pool; 2. Spectacular sea and sunset views from the top of the hill; 3. Most importantly, house keepers-Reynold and Nikki were very helpful/Nice/handy.

Well we certainly found a small piece of paradise in this villa. We were looking forward to completing our Thailand multi centre holiday in style and this villa more than lived up to our expectations. From the ease of the airport transfers, greeting by Nikki and Reynold and then stepping into the beautiful luxury villa with quality finishing touches we knew we were in for a fabulous 6 nights. Nikki and Reynold were amazing tending to our needs, it was very hard to leave. The road leading up to the villa is a bit steep (scary at first!) so we definitely recommend renting a vehicle but the breathtaking views are so worth it. We can't wait to go back, planning on a visit next year if we can.

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.

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.
