Koh Samui’s well-kept secret, 'The Nest' is a private and luxurious group of villas tucked away just off of the main road. With just a 2 minute walk to the beach, a 4 minute drive to the Big Buddha and a heap of restaurants in between you are guaranteed to be right amongst the action.
When we first arrived at The Nest we were greeted by both Charlie and his wife (the owners) who showed us all around the area. The Nest is a well-designed group of villas all of which surround one gorgeous main pool. Each villa was a comfortable size and included a bedroom, wardrobe, bathroom, mini bar, TV and desk. In the morning we would step outside our room where we enjoyed a delicious poolside breakfast. Our breakfasts were an assortment of croissants, cereals, fruit, juice and coffee – all of the good stuff!
The location of The Nest was absolutely perfect. Being down a small side street off the main road we were able to appreciate the peace and quiet as well as the hype of the main road. On this road there were restaurants, convenience stores and of course the beach! Also, only a 4 minute drive away from The Nest is Koh Samui’s Big Buddha which we highly recommend you visit! The views here are absolutely picturesque plus it’s so close from the villa! Charlie and his wife also kindly informed us of the go-to restaurants in the area which were both delicious and affordable. They also provided us with suggestions regarding what to do during the day and night and how exactly to get there. We spent one of our days exploring the island where we visited the fisherman’s village (less than a 10 minutes’ drive away). Here there were endless shops, markets and great restaurants which were right on the beach front!
Our stay at The Nest was certainly well enjoyed! We were able to appreciate some downtime whilst also exploring the island with little taxis/tuk tuks needed. The owners were both so lovely and it was great to receive guidance from Koh Samui experts.
Overall we rate our stay at The Nest a 3.5/5.
