Q. I read online that you charge for electricity, is this still the case?

Chaweng beach is the biggest beach in the island and it has literally everything in terms of shops, bars, night clubs, restaurants, markets and so on.
Q. Do we need to hire a car or can we do everything by foot?
A. By foot you can access the beach, a couple of restaurants and one convinience store. To go to different beaches, Choengmon village or Chaweng it is better a car or a motorbike. Taxis can be easily booked by talking to our team once you’ve checked in. Private drivers can also be hired for the day or half day. Our team can also assist you in hiring cars and motorbikes. Taxis are very comfortable, convenient, safe, and are available at all hours. For reference, a one-way journey to Chaweng for up to 12 passengers costs 400THB. There are also metered taxis around busier areas like Chaweng and Fisherman’s Village. Lastly, there is a taxi app called Navigo. We suggest you arrive first and see with your own eyes what kind of transportation you wish to use. We don’t need previous reservation for cars and scooters, so you can decide it after you check-in and ou team will assist you immediately.
Q. How do I know which villa I booked? I am confused…
A. Here at Samui Bayside Luxury Villas, we present all our villas individually to the market, instead of villas category. Even though all our villas are very very similar, all our villas have individual photos (you just need to click on top of their name and you will see individual photos). It is a completely free choice of each guest to look at each individual villa and choose themselves the best villa that suits. We are not responsible to choosing which villa guests will stay. Moreover, we do not move guests from one villa to another without their consent and that only happens when there is a technical problem in the villa. If you are not sure which villa you booked please email us and we will let you know immediately.
Q. Do you offer transfer services?
A. We offer free one way transfer to or from the airport, to or from Bangrak Pier, and to or from few nearby locations in the ilsand. Transfer to or from other piers, such as Nathon, Maenam, and other further places in the isalnd, are charged separately. If you have doubt about it, email us and we will let you know immediately whether it is free or not.
