                Better than excellent”

                Great spacious villas and excellent customer service

                my husband and i stayed at viva vacation resort for 3 nights over the recent new year's holidays (2011-2012). we cannot say enough good things about this beautiful, little resort and its owner kris and his family. from the very moment you arrive you feel like you are home. the staff is so friendly, it is unbelievable! the resort has only 11 spacious, nicely decorated villas where you have plenty of room to lounge also during a rainy day. the grounds are finely manicured, the pool is huge and the restaurant is 5 stars. the resort is located on a quiet beach on the west coast of koh samui, just 5 km south of nathon pier. if you want to discover the island, you will need your own wheels. we rented a scooter in nathon upon our arrival but you can also rent one from kris at the same price we paid in town. we attended the new year's eve party and, although there were 11 guests, it was a delightful night. we were greeted with a flower lei and a young coconut drink; they had organized a thai dance show, a superb buffet with amazing food, gifts draw, flooding lanterns and fireworks at midnight! we are definitely going back if we travel to thailand in the future.

                Nice beach, good pool, large beautiful villas.

                We stayed at Viva Vacation Resort for four nights while waiting for some friends that should go to Koh Phanang with us. We loved this place. We had a 1 year old child with us and wanted to start our vacation at a quiet and comfortable place and this was right on the money. We sent an email to the hotel asking for pickup from the airport and got a quick respons. We also asked if they had a babybed which they confirmed ( which unfortunately was wrong ) Viva Vacation Resort is a perfect place if you just wanna relax, eat and sleep. There are no bars etc close by, but in return this is a bit of paradise. The pool is really good, but there is no kids pool. The food in the restaurant is good and the staff is very friendly. We will definitely return here when we are on the island.

                Spacious Villas, beautiful Garden, Friendly, attentive staff

                After having enjoyed the charming huzzle and buzzle of Lamai Beach on the east coast we were looking for a quiet place as a change of pace and stayed four nights at Viva Vacation Resort. We had an absolutely wonderful stay in one of their spacious villas facing a garden full of flowers and humming birds. The staff was extremely friendly and attentive - e.g. they provided beach toys for our children to play with and was very helpful in organizing tours and transportation. The resort offers bikes rent-free and although it is located in an rural area - the main reason for our stay - a 7-11 is found about 800m from the resort. We dined at the resort restaurant at every meal during our stay and enjoyed many delicious dishes as well as quite reasonable prices. If you are looking for a quiet, beautiful place to relax we can only recommend Viva Vacation Resort.

She helped us rent motorbike, one day tour booking, offerred special breakfast and limo service regarding our needed. These all were impressive and memorable! Just like stay in friends house instead of normal hotel/resort. And Viva Vacation was the best service provided in all resorts I stayed in Koh Samui. We will recommand to others ,and be back next time!!

                we stayed here as part of our honeymoon in koh samui and we were very pleased with our choice. we stayed in a villa by the sea, which was large and had everything you needed, including free wi-fi. the staff were very friendly and the food in the restaurant was beautiful, we ate there twice and on both occasions we were impressed. the sunsets on e beach were amazing and we felt very much on our own for the entire stay. there is very little to do nearby but for us that was the attraction. viva vacation was amazing and for the price you pay there is certainly no better place to stay in samui.

                Huge villas, fantastic staff and beautiful grounds.

                I highly recommend Viva Vacation. I only stayed a night in transit and chose Viva Vacation due to its location to Nathon pier - I wished we'd had more time to enjoy the beautiful villas and relaxing location. While it's not close to town, it's an excellent choice for pure relaxation - the beach is very quiet and not crowded like other areas. There is lots of lovely seating on beach and by pool, enough for everyone. The villas are very spacious, with a sitting room, spare toilet and even a walk in closet.We had dinner and breakfast at the restaurant - based on these, I would say the quality and selection of food seemed very good. Best of all was the service, everyone we met was helpful and friendly, including the security guard who chased away a giant gecko!

                We were on short stop in Viva Vacation Resort. It is very nice small resort for people, which do not find night live. Staff is very friendly, bungalows are after reconstruction. Pool is nice, long and deep (max 190cm). Sea is very shallow, 150m from beach is depth ~1m. Internet is not so fast, but running well. Generally - connectivity of Koh Samui to EU is not good.

                beacutiful beach, nice garden villas, great staff, quiet location

                I came to this resort with 2 of my friends and we all had a great experience here. The beach was beautiful and the sea was amazing. Also the garden villas are very comfortable and quiet luxury. Its restaurant served very tasty food. The staff has been very helpful and friendly to us all along; their service were great, they were very friendly and smiling people; they also recommended us very nice restaurants and places to go at the island; (thanks again Chris by the way:)). The resort's location is a bit far away from the center area, which is a plus from our perspective:) If you want to go to NaThon or other beaches of Samui, you have to take half an hour of walk or rent a motorbike or a car or take a taxi; but we did come here because we want to be a little far away from the action, to have some quiet time:) We will definetely stay in this resort again when we visit Koh Samui again:)

                Great family vacation spot”

                Friendly and helpful staff, spacious and clean rooms, quiet, beautiful grounds, kid-friendly

                We absolutely enjoyed our stay at Viva Vacation, and would recommend it highly. We visited in June with our 5 month old and 2 year old, and I thought it was a great place to vacation with kids. Because it is on the quiet side of the island, there isn't much to worry about besides just playing and relaxing.  If you want to be close to night life and  plethora of restaurants, this might not be the place. The songtaw trucks don't come that far, and taxis are expensive (you can rent cars or scooters too). But, the restaurant at the hotel was reasonably priced and quite good. The included breakfast was great too.  We stayed in a sea view villa, and the pool and beach were just steps away. The villa was clean and seemed quite new. The bathroom was huge and had two toilets, a shower and separate huge bathtub. The water pressure wasn't the best, but that was okay. Having the separate living and bedroom was nice with kids. Our kids had a blast running back and forth between the pool and the beach. The ocean is really shallow there, which was good for young kids. The beach seemed dirtier than other parts of the island (although the staff cleaned it up often... Just lots that washed up).  I also had several massages in the open pavilion right on the beach...fantastic.  The staff is excellent and really was what made us love being there. Not only did they know us all by name and love our kids, but they often played with our kids and helped us with anything we needed. The manager, Chris, is always around and super helpful. He also happens to be a phenomenal photographer, so if you get a chance to hire his services, you won't be disappointed in your portraits!  In short... We loved our stay!

                Friendly staff, nice environment, good service, breakfast
                lack of information

                Viva Vacation Resort is one of the loveliest resorts I'v ever visited. It's a very quiet place with about 10 villas, every villa have two rooms. We rented a villa with seaview for our honeymoon and it was perfect. Not as expensive as some of the 4 starred hotels along Lipa Noi Beach but certainly a good bargin. I visited some of the other more expensive hotels which I found less appealing than Viva Vacation Resort. The Staff is very friendly and help you with everything. The only downside would be the lack of information we received, but when we asked them for help they were more than willingly.

                Great Price Good Space Glorious Privacy

                On the way to the resort, I was worried. The price and the ratings just didn't match up and that sounded too good to be true. As soon as we hit Samui it was apparent, 300baht for a 3km. ride to the resort (if I had called a cab from the resort it would have been 400baht, I called and asked on the way). Got to the resort, raining and the lights were out. Not the resorts fault, just something that happens occasionally on the island when it rains. The reception knew immediately who we were (kudos to the receptionist), gave us a complimentary drink and cool towel before taking us to our room. Turned a few corners and WAM! our room. The receptionist gave us a tour and oh my was it spacious. Living room, Bed room, Bath room (Huge!) and even the closet was it's own room! Told the receptionist how I felt about the bungalow and she replied "This is our smallest room" with a giggle. A bit after the receptionist left the rain drizzled down and the lights came on. Me and my beloved went for dinner then the pool (after a minimum 30 minutes of digestion of course) and it was nostalgic. The pool was wonderfully lit and after all the rain, the stars filled the sky (like I said, nostalgic). This magical moment was not interrupted by and guest or staff, this is where the privacy kicks in. Viva vacation isn't over packed and over staffed. It's a mom and pop kind of business that is missing in a lot of tourist destination. Most places are franchises that pack their resort with tours and guest, so much so that you just want to pack up as soon as you arrive. Or, on the opposite spectrum, are places that have low prices and even less value. Sure, the lights went out and the food wasn't michelin quality and sure, they charged me 300 baht for a 3km. ride to the docks (on the way back). But those precious moments of romance and privacy out shine the rest. Nostalgic, much like the stars after the rain.

                Peaceful, Quiet, Gardens

                We love the name "Viva Vacation" and its true. It was a pleasant stay in there. Very quiet, beautiful garden which we felt peaceful away from everything. We had a special dinner on the beach. Staff were friendly and very kind. Highly recommend this resort for couples who likes nature and romantic atmosphere. You won't disappointed your vacation at this resort.

                Great resort on the beach with personal service ”

                Friendly staff, private beach

                we had a lovely stay at viva vacation resort and the owner chris was so helpful with everything throughout the stay. it is real thai hospitality. the only con is that it is bit far off from the main nightlife spots but if you are looking for relaxation, peace, a great holiday with personal service then this resort is ideal.

                Relaxing Anniversary Get-Away”

                Quiet, Relaxing, Peaceful

                We had an awesome stay at Viva! The location is remote and the beach is lovely. The staff raked the beach every morning to keep it free from debris and that is just one example of their attention to detail. The breakfast had many choices and everything that we tried was very good. My wife and I live in Thailand ad have vacationed in many different cities and the service at Viva was well above average. The one downside was that there were not many local restaurants close by and when we travel we like to eat some meals a little Thai places (it tastes authentic and helps the budget!) But overall a very relaxing vacation for our 5 year anniversary.

                Paradise for those looking for peace and tranquility ”

                Viva vacation is a gorgeous family run resort offering excellent value for money. The spacious villas are set in the most beautiful well maintained gardens and the property had a stunning beach front location. The food and service was excellent throughout our 7 day stay. Honestly one of the best places we have stayed in south east Asia.

                cleanliness, size, location

                We stayed for one night before catching the ferry from Nathon the next day. We both wished we had discovered this place sooner. About 5 minutes by taxi/bike from the ferry terminal, this place is a gem. Huge rooms, a nice pool, fast WIFI and right on the beach. Anyone looking for a peaceful stay in Nathon should definitely stay at Viva!
