Right next to the powdery white sand of Samui island's serene Lipa Noi beach, Waimarie is the ultimate absolute beach getaway, with dreamy views across island-dotted sea to the sunset. The six spacious bedrooms, surrounded by brilliant tropical gardens, can sleep up to 14 people in comfort, making this the ideal family retreat, friends reunion venue or corporate getaway. With its 15-metre pool, spacious open dining room and lounge, and its huge shady sala, this Samui villa has it all: a super-efficient staff, five-star cuisine, a private tennis court, kayaks and paddle-boards and all the luxury you can eat. Waimarie is one of 5 exceptional private villas on the quiet southern side of the secluded Lipa Noi peninsular. You approach the villas through an unfinished development with little sign of construction (still unfinished as of June 2012). There is nothing of consequence in the immediate vicinity of the villa, which guarantees complete peace and quiet. The sea here is ideal for swimming year round - Waimarie also provides beach volleyball and Kayaks so guests can make the most of the setting - and boasts beautiful views out to the small islands of the National Marine Park and across to the mainland. Facing due west, this is also the best beach on the island to enjoy the tropical sunsets. A small jetty for ferries to the mainland sits a few hundred metres left of the villa, its only impact being the occasional distant announcement of a departure. Local life centres on a small fishing village towards the end of the bay, which is also the chef's source for delicious fresh seafood.
