Situated in the hills above Bophut, the most popular area of Koh Samui known for its Fisherman’s
Village, and within easy reach of the island’s most popular beaches, shopping centers, international schools, hospitals, restaurants, and nightlife. Yet its hilltop location offers the buyer unparalleled peace and tranquility, with unique vistas combining sea views and the lush interior of the island - the villa in its rarefied setting will offer a different pace of living. 


A fantastic location with some of the finest infrastructure the island has to offer, a truly inspirational villa design, subtle in its beauty, with a very considered synergy within the tropical landscape and the surrounding additional villas, KAYA provides a near- perfect recipe for your choice of a land purchase.


The land is being conscientiously developed over time to include private luxury estates, opulent hospitality for visitors, and boutique retail and wellness services that cohesively complement the worry-free lifestyle savored by Koh Samui’s inhabitants.


KAYA’s developers have recruited an international team of experts. From Swiss architects to American designers, the team is committed to making the most of what is arguably the last site of this scale and beauty on Samui’s popular north east coast. KAYA aims to be one of Thailand’s lowest density signature residential estates, offering peace of mind to prospective buyers seeking a serene locale where they can reap the fruits of a hard-earned legacy. With its stunning ocean views and pristine surroundings, KAYA provides far more than just the typical comforts of resort living. It is a destination of a lifetime for those seeking an eco-friendly, sustainable community where one can savor the benefits of a life’s work and settle into a villa that can serve as an heirloom for generations to come.




Engaging, environmentally sensitive architecture ensures that the properties blend with the natural surroundings while also offering unique, luxurious living spaces. Each villa has been carefully crafted to make the best of the development’s incredible location by welcoming in remarkable sea views and the soothing natural atmosphere to complement beautifully appointed interior decor. Indoor and outdoor spaces are separated by floor-to-ceiling doors that can easily be opened to allow residents to pass through and take advantage of wide balconies that maximize the views. Generous terraces and open living plans allow residents and guests to soak up the pleasant year-round Koh Samui climate. 



KAYA cascades down the lush hillside of Samui’s north eastern coast, making it an ideal location for those seeking undisturbed natural surroundings. Located high in the lush green hills above Samui's popular resort area and F&B venues of Bophut, KAYA is just 6km from Samui's international airport and 7km from gorgeous sandy beaches at the island's main tourist centre, Chaweng. 

Thanks to its elevation, the luxury gated estate enjoys cool mountain air with the lowest PM2.5 levels for up to ten months of the year.  Spectacular views from the northeast coastline and the Gulf of Siam, to offshore islands such as Koh Phangan, Koh Som, Koh Tao and parts of the Angthong Marine Park islands as well as of the island's striking mountainous interior with its coconut-clad slopes provide a dramatic backdrop while Koh Samui’s abundant conveniences and activities are just a short drive away.




KAYA is equipped with the latest in modern-day comforts and conveniences. Each plot is connected to an underground electricity system powered by three distribution substations for each zone, each with its own full back up generator for the whole development so that residents can enjoy uninterrupted power supply in less than a minute of Samui’s Provincial Electricity Authority mains power going out. This is a luxurious necessity on a tropical island with many trees near power lines and regular maintenance and upgrades on its electric system. Leased fiber optic lines provide high-speed internet capabilities. Clean water is provided to the site by way of several deep wells, irrigation ponds, and water tanks that hold a total storage capacity of 440 m3. Water delivered to each villa passes through oxidation tanks complete with sand, carbon, and resin filters. Top-notch drainage systems ensure that water is properly and efficiently drained, allowing residents to remain at ease during Thailand’s rainiest periods. The roads of KAYA have been constructed to meet European standards, allowing for easy access and safe transportation throughout the site.




Creating a quintessential new luxury address for Koh Samui requires extensive planning, lengthy discussion, and an endless supply of inspiration. Each design decision was organized around four central questions that challenge the culture for building big: what is necessary; how can we minimize our impact on the earth; how do we respect the context of the neighborhood; and what can we really build? Some answers came from a place with which we are already intimately familiar – the seemingly forgotten vernacular architecture and the principles of Tropical Modernism also offered direction. KAYA offers a unique combination of design, intimacy, and contextualism that captures a new, modern movement in the Koh Samui real estate market. It is created by those who truly believe in offering an international destination rooted in local culture and set within an inspiring piece of modern architecture and interiors. Koh Samui residents pride themselves on living the dream, which many have worked toward achieving their whole lives. A villa at KAYA, much like a precious stone, is a sign of a life of sacrifice and dedication that can be passed down through one’s lineage for generations to come.
