Right on the beach in Laem Sor, Koh Samui, Ban Mekkala is a resort-style retreat that is all about laid-back sophistication and tropical luxury. Each feature of this six-bedroom and six-bathroom villa has been meticulously thought-out and designed to ensure the perfect getaway.
Spread over three gorgeous pavilions, the villa has all the creature comforts you could ask of a holiday. There are stunning views to azure seascape, a 20-metre long and T-shaped pool, jacuzzi, home theatre, massage and steam room, and the most exquisite outdoor dining sala.
Who it’s for
Ban Mekkala is the place to go if you’re travelling with your family or lots of your friends. You’ll particularly love it if you’re in the mood for a quiet family reunion away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
Ban Mekkala rests on the quiet southern coast of Koh Samui. It is 35 minutes from the airport and 15 minutes from the shopping and dining hub of Lamai.
Food & drink
Who doesn’t love a good poolside meal? This is the way to go if you’re looking for a relaxing dinner with your favourite people. And the Thai meals from the private chef are a true delight. We get hungry just looking at these photos.

Spread across the three pavilions, the six bedrooms of Ban Mekkala come in three distinctive styles. Choose whichever makes you happiest.
If you can’t choose based on the bedroom layouts alone, the insanely gorgeous ensuite bathrooms will get you leaning one way or the other.
The best bits
The pool is pristine. It’s long enough for laps and has a great shallow area for kids to enjoy. We most love that the water blends in perfectly with the azure ocean beyond and you feel like you could just drift away.
The long runway down to the pool and outdoor dining sala, flanked by two pavilions and trees, just adds to the beauty and drama of Ban Mekkala.
We’re all about this deck off of the living area. You’ll truly feel like the king of your castle as you enjoy your morning caffeine hit from this spot.
