KC Resort & Over Water Villas – Koh Samui, Thailand

KC Koh Samui water villas

An unusual 5-star resort situated on a hill overlooking Chaweng Beach, the KC Resort and Over Water Villas features 95 guest rooms, 16 of which are on stilts above a large and private infinity-edge pool. So these are not too similar to the water villas you'll find in the Maldives and elsewhere, but still you can swim directly underneath your large villa, so it's the closest experience you'll get in the Thai Islands.

The resort has an excellent reputation for service and luxury amenities, and its secluded location on a hill overlooking the beach also puts it in a class of its own. There's plenty to do at the resort itself, but those wanting to go to the beach will be shuttled back and forth down the hill on a resort golf cart for free, so it's the best of both worlds.


The KC Resort & Over Water Villas Resort is located on a hill at the north end of Chaweng Beach on Koh Samui Island in Thailand.

What the reviews say

Reviews used to be very strong with only a few minor complaints here and there but lately things have changed for the worse. This may be a staffing issue, so there is hope that things will get back to how they used to be. However, at the moment, concerns and complaints include a misleading buffet, high cost of babysitting, a non functional jacuzzi and more. On another note, there are some good reviews with guests stating that they loved the resort and would visit a second time.

Getting there

To reach the KC Resort & Over Water Villas you'll need to fly or take the ferry to Koh Samui Island in southern Thailand. Once there you'll find taxis and other ground transportation options.
