Peerapat Villa Location
Peerapat Villa is located in the very heart of the touristic northeast corner of Koh Samui island between the busy tourist towns of Bophut and Chaweng. Nestled into the hillside of Bangrak with stunning views over Bangrak Bay towards nearby Koh Phangan island, the villa sits within a very spacious 1,600sqm plot of family-friendly gardens. Public access to beautiful Bangrak beach is just 1.1km from the villa, easily reachable in 3 minutes driving time or a short 12-15 minute walk. The popular surrounding towns of Chaweng Beach (5.8km) and Bophut’s Fisherman’s Village (3.5km) are within easy reach.
Peerapat Villa offers complete peace, privacy and relaxation in beautiful tropical surroundings yet a very convenient location in one of Koh Samui’s most sought after areas.
Bangrak Beach is located just 1.1km from the villa and the closest public access is opposite the nearby 7-11 store on the beach road before The Privilege Hotel. This central part of Bangrak beach, between here and the Samui Pier resort, located about 500m to the east, offers the softest sands and best swimming opportunities.
Great places to hang out, drink, eat and relax on the beach include Chi Samui Beach Club (1.2km from villa), the Secret Garden resort (1.4km) and Samui Pier resort (1.6km) – see photos below or click blue links for more information.

Surrounding Popular Area: Chaweng, Choeng Mon and Bophut
Chaweng Beach (5.8km) is the most popular and busiest of the main tourist strips on the island. Chaweng offers a huge choice of bars, restaurants, nightclubs and beachfront resorts. The beach offers fine white sands and good swimming with all imaginable conveniences within a short stroll. If you heading to Chaweng for the first time head along to Ark Bar on the beach or the Islander pub, two of Chaweng’s most established venues. After about 10pm, Soi Green Mango is the place to be.
Bophut (3.5km) offers chic Fisherman’s Village and The Wharf beach-side mall. Friday night is Walking Street where the village is closed to traffic and locals set up market stalls selling Thai street food and souvenirs. Both Fisherman’s Village and The Wharf (to the western side of the village) offer a huge choice of chic wining and dining options.
Cheong Mon (5km) is a more peaceful sandy bay and a favorite with locals and tourists alike. The shallow waters make it a favorite for families with children. There are plenty of cafes, bars and beachfront resorts with more lower and medium end dining options than Bophut and Chaweng.
