What our guests say about us 

After 25,000 km on motorcycle across Thailand, Malaysia, and Laos, there is one stop, call it "oasis" that stands above all the hotels, resorts and places to rest. Near Chumpon, located on a river that is connected to the sea, Villa Varich is that oasis of peace and tranquility. What makes it even more special is the host Korm and his father. Korm is an athlete, and a coffee afficionado. If you want to explore all the subtelties of coffee, ask Korm. The rooms are little palaces with views on the river. Everything is here Five Star except the price. You can even go fishing in the river for bass. We caught a giant shrimp, big enough to feed one person. I wish to take advantage of this to say "Thank you" Korm, thank you and your father for such hospitality. Quality is not rampant in South-East Asia. But at Villa Varich you will find quality both in the environment, in the services, and in the heart of the owners.

Ich bin hierhergekommen für 2 Tage. Bleibe noch, weil es so schön ist. Wunderschöne Natur, gepflegte Anlage, wirklich aufmerksame nette Besitzer mit Familie. Ich fühle mich hier so liebevoll aufgenommen. Die stilvolle Unterkunft, und der Kaffee! das leckere Frühstück... es passt alles. Zum Essen muss man sich Ausserhalb was suchen, aber ich war mir auch hier nicht alleine überlassen! Gerne will ich wieder hierherkommen. Danke Khom mit Familie, für die schöne Zeit hier.

This place was perfect for us. The apartment is located in a little paradise beside a cool river. The host perfectly integrates nature and very good standard of living. A breakfast, selfmade coffee and good talks are included for free! Chumphon is only 5-10 min scooter-drive away. There is a very authentic market on Saturday and Sunday just around the corner. The room was very cozy and you can enjoy fast WIFI.

Es passt einfach alles. Die Hotelanlage liegt direkt im Grünen, ein toller Ruhepol. Die Zimmer sind wunderschön, werden stets sauber gehalten. Die Inhaber sorgen stets dafür das man sich einfach wohl fühlt. So aufmerksam, nett und hilfsbereit, einfach zwei Herzmenschen. ️ Für die Beiden ist so vieles selbstverständlich. Sie haben uns die Weiterreise organisiert und uns zur Busstation gefahren. Das Frühstück und der selbst gemahlene Kaffee war so lecker bei euch. Danke für alles! Macht weiter so.  Einfach beautiful. Das war die Beste Unterkunft in Thailand 



We had an amazing, relaxing stay at Villa Varich. The owner, Khom, is so friendly and helpful. He offered to pick us up from the bus station on our way there, took us on a tour of the area and dropped us off at the train station after our stay. He gave us great tips on what to do in the village as well as in Bangkok and the rest of the country. Our room room was large and clean with a big window. Breakfast is a combination of delicious Western and Thai foods and amazing coffee. We borrowed bikes for free from the hotel to get around the area on and ate in local restaurants. We also got our laundry done for us for free. The area is beautiful and it really feels like you are in the middle of the jungle. We would have loved to have stayed longer!



Es war einfach einmalig! Wir hatten ein super schönes Zimmer mit einem kleinen Balkon. Es war sehr sauber und wir konntem unser Auto direkt davor parkieren. Duschgel, shampoo, Seife, Handtücher, Kühlschrank und AC war slles vorhanden. Die Anlage am Fluss ist einfach wunderschön und sehr gepflegt. Alles ist modern und neu. Frühstück ist ebenfalls inbegriffen und war sehr fein. Rs git Thai- Spezialitäten und auch westliches. Die Eigentümer waren sehr nett und wir haben uns viel mit ihnen unterhalten. Sie gaben uns wertvolle Insidertipps für unsere weitere Reisr und buchten auch gleich für uns ein Hotel im Khao Sok Natiolanpark. Wir besuchten dank ihnen einen der schönsten Orte an dem ich je war. Zu diesem tollen Preis war das mit Abstand das schönste Zimmer, in den bisher 20 Tagen Thailand.



This is really a Best of Thailand experience. The place and the people are a perfect example of what makes Thailand special.Beautiful site and grounds, close to nature, bedroom glass door opens to view of river. Well managed and maintained, immaculately clean, very comfortable. Owners/managers Khom and Tang are friendly and responsive, intelligent, educated and are true guest service professionals. And they both speak perfect English. Khom is a coffee The location gives the guest an experience of real Thailand,among rural community life.



Excellent owner/manager (Khom) who came to pick me up in Chumphon city. The property is only 5 km outside of Chumphon, but you really get the sensation of sleeping in the nature. Beautifull site with spacious and modern rooms. Great authentic Thai breakfast with own roasted coffee. Thanks a lot Khom for the amazing experience!



nettes kleines Resort.Super sauber in netter Umgebung.Da wir das Resort nicht fanden,wurden wir von nahegelegenen Tankstelle abgeholt und zum Resort geleitet Personal extrem nett,vor allen Dingen spricht das Besitzer paar ein ordentliches Englisch,was in Thailand die absolute Ausnahme ist. Cafe zum Fruehstk. exrem gut da frisch gemahlen und im Glaskolben profihaft gebrueht.

What a wonderful hotel. Gorgeous setting in the Thailand countryside next to the river. They are so welcoming and helpful. If you find yourself in the area, definitely stay here!


Bryan Howard,


Villa Varich is the perfect place to stop in Chumphon! The villas offered have a perfect equipment, the bed, the bathroom, the terrace, everything is conducive to comfort. The location is also idyllic, situated in a country setting, but close to the harbor, it is a perfect place to relay with the islands. The hosts are welcoming, considerate. They will explain their whole region, you will give advice. The typical lunch is excellent and the coffee picked and relished by our host is divine ... again THANKS for this moment of disconnection and this beautiful meeting. Do not hesitate to compete in Belgium. See you soon



I booked the villa for 7 days 7 nights as I wanted to find a place where I can read and quiet myself during my vacation, plus I myself have never been to Chompon. I heard about this place through a friend who had a good experience staying here before. I arrived here by Nok Air and the owner, Khun Khom, kindly picked me up from the station at the meeting point in the city. During my stay, i found this villa was what I have expected, it's very peaceful and friendly. The room is very clean with a canal view. The highlight was the owner brew the fresh local coffee for the guests every morning! How could I not love that! If you have a car is easier for you to get around the town, but unfortunately I flew by air, so the owner took me around be a tour guide. He's super nice!! 

Moreover, Chompon brought me to a surprise, it has a lot of to offer with really AMAZING beautiful islands, I went to snorkel 3 days straight and in love with the beauty under the sea, and it's not touristy like Phi Phi or Koh Tao where you found tons of boat parking around the island. The local food is just around the corner of the Villa and it's delish, the owner will guide you where to eat anyway. 

Yes, I had a really good time staying here. Highly Recommend for those who's never been to Chompon to stay here. 

Thank you for taking a good care of me!



This is cozy and authentic place in a beautiful and peaceful place near the jungle river. Also the tasty breakfast with really good homemade coffee was included. Great place, definitely recommend.



This is the place to be in Chumphon. it's a bit away from the town and market but it is quiet and peaceful. We had the forest and the river right in front of our room. The room was clean and absolutely nice. The host is very helpful and kind. During breakfast time try the coffee flower tea !!!



I can not begin to express how amazing this place is. The rooms are clean, the water is hot, the property is beautiful. The thing that takes it over the top is the owner Khom. His passion behind the hotel, his coffee, the river and his town make it a must stop just to meet him. I was supposed to stay one night but added another night(I already had another hotel in Ko Tao and he called and asked them to change the reservation for me). He roasts and grinds his own coffee beans, makes amazing tea from the coffee plant flowers, serves traditional Thai breakfast prepared daily by his mother, his father who owns a 250 acre palm oil farm right next door also helps out, he brought us to a local Thai restaurant in town, brought us to a Thai long boat race...the list goes on. The hotel/villa has only been open about 6 months and I asked him why he changed from working as an engineer in Bangkok and he said because he loves to travel and to meet new people but this way it's like traveling and meeting people all the time. This is 100% a must stop for people traveling across Thailand or just want a tranquil place to relax. I hope him all the success and look forward to crossing paths with Khom again wether it be in Thailand or some other part of the world.



Le logement est situé dans un parc de verdure luxuriante et magnifique. Khom est un hôte charmant qui est venu gentiment nous chercher à la gare et nous y a même reconduit le lendemain :-)



Besser geht es nicht! Tolle Unterkunft, nette Leute! Khom ist ein super Typ! WLAN extrem schnell!



店主khom是我们在泰国旅行中对我们最好的小伙子,尽管大部分泰国人都已经很好了,他是最好的,Khom亲自到车站接送我们,帮助我们到处去租车,弄他很喜欢的咖啡给我们喝,给我们很多旅行的建议,他很善良,很真诚,有任何需要,他都会默默的记在心上,尽他的能力满足,我们非常幸运能够认识他,是我们宝贵的人生财富。 住宿方面,这里非常的适合自驾旅行的人们,每间房有私人专属停车的车位,房子就在森林河流里面,有摩托车的话会很方便,我们还自己划Khom的船在丛林河流里探险了一段,是我觉得很美好的时光,这才是真正意义上的旅行,房间内设施设备齐全,床品是非常的舒服和干净,早餐很有当地风味,是khom的母亲做的,khom虽然年轻但游历过很多国家,所以跟他聊天会有很多收获,希望他有一个幸福的未来。 译文

Villa is very private, clean and comfortable. Each villa has private parking which we very appreciate, because we were traveling by big bike. Staff is very nice, especially young boy who has perfect English, is very helpful and take cake about everything very well.

Good value for money, we didn’t expect that much.​



Khom is SPECIAL, special host and very special person. Kind, nice and helpful! He arranged almost everything for us, picked us and dropped by train as well. He drove with us for a lunch, translated menu to english, showed some interested places and told a lot of informations about the Thailand and Chumphon.

The town is cool, many markets and all kinds of fruits you have to try. The Villa is beyond PERFECT, beautiful houses and awesome jungle nature around. I'm supersure that this is the best place we have seen in Thailand. If I will be back in Chumphon I will for 100% stay with Khom. Btw we spent one day kayaking on the river next to the villa and we loved it so much! 

Khom, thank you for everything, it's a pleasure to find a person like you, you are welcome anytime in Prague :) Good luck with Villa, you have build a gold treasure and such a big paradise. :)​

Die Besitzer der Unterkunft sind sehr freundlich und unglaublich hilfsbereit, super Service! Die Unterkunft liegt in einer sehr schönen Umgebung, umgeben von Natur und Ruhe. Wer somit entspannen will und trotzdem die Umgebung erkunden will, ist hier genau richtig. Allerdings benötigt man einen Roller oder ein Auto, da man sich darauf einstellen muss, 10-20 Minuten in den Stadtkern bzw. zu den Stränden zu fahren. Dafür hat man aber eben einen idyllischen Rückzugsort. Die Zimmer sind sauber und modern eingerichtet und das Frühstück war super lecker, da es u.a. typisch thailändische Süßspeisen gab und einen sehr guten Kaffee bzw. Tee der Region. Das Preis-Leistungsverhältnis ist somit unschlagbar, wir würden auf jeden Fall wiederkommen!
