Over Easter in 2014, the Cameron family rented a villa near Chaweng beach on Koh Samui to celebrate Oliver Cameron's 60th birthday.
“When I turned 60 we rented a villa on Koh Samui in Thailand. I had thought for a while that I did not want a party because we had the whole family gathered last year when my wife turned 60. So this year I wanted to do something different and so Sally and I decided to invite our two boys and their families on a vacation in Thailand. It's rare that we all get to spend time together and this is probably one of the last time that we can do this before we get too old or the boys want to take their own families on holiday.
We were nine in total, including three small children, so we needed a large villa. We had already decided that we wanted a villa rather than stay in a hotel because it is more private and we can spend some quality time together without having to be in a large hotel with hundreds of other people. We looked online and found that there is a surprising amount of options available on Koh Samui in different parts of the island. The companies we contacted were very helpful and guided us through the many options and we ended up renting a four bedroom villa near Chaweng beach.
One of the things we liked most about the villas was the large lounge areas both indoor and outdoor where we could relax and still be social. The al fresco dining area was where we spent most of our time as it sat right next to a large deck overlooking the infinity pool. The area was shaded throughout the day and there was a nice breeze to keep us cool. The bedrooms were all very specious and three of them had en-suite bathrooms and balconies which was very convenient. Everything was very nicely decorated with traditional Thai handicrafts and colourful silks.
When we were not having dinner at home with Khun Wicha, the lovely chef whom the rental agency had arranged for us, we went to Chaweng beach to eat at some of the seaside restaurants there. The area is quite busy with lots of shops, spas, restaurants and bars and while it was nice to visit, I must admit I loved coming back to our own private villa after a night out in Chaweng. Being surrounded by your family in a stunning tropical destination … these are the moments that holidays were made for.”
