Our second stay at Viva Vacation was as positive as the first one two years ago. We were greeted as friends and felt like coming home. Kris is a perfect host and Koi is an excellent enhancment to the team (we hope your leg is ok again!). The breakfast list to choose the personal favorites from is one of the... More

Viva vacation is a family owned hotel/resort/b&b (whatever you call them). If you want to party all night long then this is not the place for you. However, if you are a couple, or travelling with young kids i can imagine you will enjoy it a lot. They only have 11 houses. So most of the time you share the... More

OK, first I have to say that we booked this place by mistake – no fault of the hotel I would hasten to add, just my not reading the description correctly. I was therefore most disappointed when I arrived and realised my mistake – and this added to difficulties in finding the place (the coordiantes for anyone who is going... More

We stayed for 9 nights in seaview villa 103, from Feb 7th to 16th 2014, with 2 kids aged 4 and 1 1/2. We chose Viva because of all the reviews here, and were not disappointed in the least. Yes, the sea is shallow (i.e. warm, calm, perfect for young kids, then!), and the resort is located in a very... More

Viva vacation is a great option for those looking for a quiet get-away. If you appreciate nature goods and spaciousness over luxurious design and very fine food, you would love it. The key advantages: - The beach is really specious, has great seating options and enjoys quiet waters - 20m long pool which is usually completely free - The restaurant... More

Wife and I stayed here for nearly 3 weeks over Christmas/New Year 2013/14. We wanted somewhere away from the bars and discos of the crowded noisy Chawang east side of Koh Samui.

I just spent two weeks at Viva Vacation while doing a yoga-fasting course and feel so very fortunate to have stayed there. The beach is magnificent, boasting several hammocks and plenty of lawnchairs. The sala is occupied by massage therapists who come in to massage guests after a "hard day on the beach"! The hotel's grounds are breathtaking with a... More

“if you would like to be on your own, w/o people passing by your villa - take 108 :) that is where i stayed. but if you take any villa, it is not a busy resort - so, i assume, that you will be happy with any villa in the resort.”
