A fantastic oasis just a 5 minute walk from the madness of Sairee Beach. Beautiful rooms, especially the family villa and the pool was wonderful for a refreshing dip and to relax beside. Owners Jim and Andrea were helpful and welcoming. Baan Sawainam gave our family (including 3 teenagers) exactly what we were looking for - peace and relaxation whilst...

I just asked our 4-year old daughter what she liked best on Koh Tao, she said: - everything - that Lulu Belle (the owners' little daughter) lived next door - diving in the pool We found Baan Sawainam a super pleasant retreat from Koh Tao's beach scene. It's run by a very nice young New Zealand-German family (and some help...

This is a good place to be close to all the action around Sairee beach, and yet far enough to be able to relax and get a good night's sleep (an essential criteria in our books....) The kitchen is handy for making tea/coffee, the room is equipped with fan and aircon,though we didn't need both simultaneously, it's kept nice and...

Spacious, clean and tasteful accommodation. A short walk away from the hustle of Sairee Beach, these villas are in a quiet secluded area. The use of the private pool before breakfast or after a hot day is an added advantage. The owners, Jim and Andrea (English & German respectively), are so friendly and helpful with making any travel arrangements or...

I have lived on Koh Tao for a number of years and my parents decided it was time for a visit. They wanted luxury accommodation, in a quiet area, but within easy walking distance from the beach, shops and restaurants. They were extremely happy with my choice! Jim and Andrea, the owners were very friendly, welcoming and helpful. The resort...

I spent two days at Baan Sawainam; wanting a nice, clean, air-conditioned room that was away from the hustle and bustle, and that was exactly what I was provided with.

Baan Sawainam is just the perfect place to enjoy some quiet en relaxing time at Koh Tao. We booked both the two rooms so it felt like we had a private Villa. The rooms are clean and have airco.

If you're staying on Koh Tao and you want to live in some cheap backpackers' accomodation, then fine, there's plenty around. But if you want to have a little bit of comfort then I really recommend this place.
