Villa Element of 8

Laem Sor, Taling-Ngam, Koh Samui, Thailand
12 adults and 2 children (6 ensuite king-size bedrooms); 2 extra beds and a baby cot are available (extra charge).
Hugging the lush hillside in south-west Samui, Element of 8 is a contemporary holiday home for large groups. Enjoy stunning sea views from its clifftop pool deck, or the many indoor-outdoor living areas spread across the villa. Each of the six bedrooms boasts magnificent sea views, connected by wraparound terraces and hidden staircases. Built over three levels, the villa poetically tumbles down the hill, the last level featuring a private gym and beachfront barbecue area. Element of 8 is all about the sea views, which can be enjoyed from every corner of the villa. With a capable team of staff tending to your every wish, this is a hidden paradise for peaceful and luxurious island vacations in Koh Samui.


Food plays an important part in any holiday experience. Your private chef will ensure that your kitchen is fully stocked with your favourite items as well as create memorable meals for your entire group. At breakfast, expect freshly prepared eggs and other morning favourites such as a fantastic selection of fresh fruits, juices, cereals and yoghurt.

For lunch on the terrace or in the poolside sala, choose from the menu and enjoy a refreshing Thai salad such as Som Tam (green papaya salad) or Yum Woon Sun (glass noodles) served with grilled seafood or satays. Follow this up with a local speciality such as Pad Thai (Thai noodles). In the evening, the chef will surprise you with a delicious Thai or western dinner, served alfresco under the stars.

For a relaxed and bespoke dining experience, your villa staff can arrange a lavish barbecue down by the seashore or on your pool terrace.

Groceries and beverages are charged at market price plus 20% handling fee and 7% government tax with a minimum shopping fee of THB 750. Villa staff will take care of all the shopping and keep receipts for reference.


Thailand's famous massages and pampering beauty treatments delivered by professional therapists can be arranged by your villa staff and enjoyed in the comfort of your villa.

Poolside salas provide a sublime, shaded spot to enjoy a massage, cooled by sea breeze and soothed by the sound of the breaking surf. Or lie back, relax and let the stresses of modern life float away as you are pampered with a treatment in the privacy of your own room or terrace.
