Ban Suriya, translated as “The Sunshine House”, sits on a former coconut plantation on Lipa Noi (“Little Palm”) beach on the peaceful south-west coast of Koh Samui. Lipa Noi is regarded as the most unspoilt, and best swimming beach on the island and has wonderful views of Angthong Marine Park and stunning sunsets.
Ban Suriya is a deluxe contemporary style villa. The Villa is almost exclusively white, in contrast with the use of vibrant colours in accents. It is undoubtedly a stylish person’s paradise.
