“Tropical Sanctuary”
Reviewed 15 October 2012

We had a truly beautiful and restful holiday. Baan Sawan is a true Sanctuary.

The house is beautiful, the pool is fantastic and the food was excellent.

Thankyou to the villa staff for their amazing hospitality.

i stayed for 9 days in september with my boyfriend. old fashioned villa which is coming in the years.the master bathroom is really run down, the bathroom of the guest rooms - only one for two rooms - is really tasteless. there is no toilette in the living area so that guest have to go to the private bathrooms. but the worst thing on my stay was that the owner and his staff attempt to get always more money from me. one day they want to get $ 1.000,- for one extra cleaning of the two guestrooms when i had guests - so be careful!!!. finally i had to pay $ 200,- for the cleaning. the other day the towels were dirty and i had to buy new one for $ 150,-. so the staff is always in contact with the owner and try to make some extra money instead of looking of the villa and the garden. i think he really do not like to work you see it at the garden which is really untended and not watered. the other day he forget to order fresh water so we had only very brown water for 3 days. i am very sorry that i can not make a better review of my stay but i really was very unhappy. i think the owner should not rent the villa because he do not like guests.

We just returned from a January get away to Koh Sumui where we spent 5 evenings in this idyllic holiday home. It was a perfect retreat for our family of 5 and would also be well-suited for larger families/sets of couples as all 3 bedrooms are equally inviting. The accommodation, the breathtaking views and the outstanding service provided by Star and Levi were second to none. We were especially impressed by the on-site gourmet meals, thebeautifully landscaped, large garden, the Thai influenced decor and the impeccable overall presentation of the property. Location provides the best of both worlds - a serene retreat that is 5-10 minutes from any island action that one desires. Indeed, we had a memorable holiday that was in great part due to this luxury accommodation.

We stayed at Baan Sawan for 6 days as part of a 4 week holiday in Thailand. Our biggest mistake was leaving this Villa until last as if we had commenced our trip here we would never have left! We travel to Thailand quite often and this was our third time in Samui in the past 10 years. We feel we know the island very well and have stayed in most locations during our previous trips. Since our time at Baan Sawan we strongly believe the Bophut Hills are the best location on Samui and Fishermans Village and the Bophut area the best for restaurants. The Villa is beautifully decorated in modern Balinese style while still retaining a comfortable homely feel. The pool is the best Villa Pool we have seen. It is almost square with an infinity edge and the most spectacular view beyond it. Star and her husbnad Levy keep the villa imaculate at all times and look after you very well. Nothing is too much trouble for them. Star speaks pefect English and has a lovely way with children (my three still speak of her fondly). We cant wait to return to this beautiful villa and hope to make it an annual holiday for our family.

Stayed here for our honeymoon last year as we like the peace & quiet of our own villa. When we arrived we were met by Star & she made us feel very welcome, especially when we came down to breakfast the next morning & she had a feast layed out for us. This place is perfect, amazing views, peacefull & tranquil. You do need a car here as it's high on the side of a hill (this is how you get the amazing views), we hired a monster truck which was great fun(a huge toyota hilux), the driving on Samui is fine, don't panic! We explored everywhere & with the local knowledge of Star we found some great places to eat & even got to see some places off the beaten path. This place is perfect for everyone & anyone. If you want to see Thailand & Samui still be away from it all, but be well taken care off, this is it. Enjoy!

We have just finished what I can only say has been an extremely relaxing and enjoyable family break for 10 days. Very nice to meet the owners of the Villa who have worked so hard to maintain this excellent standard. Star and Levy (the live in hosts) were excellent and very informative about the local area and things to do while we were here.
Regardless of being away from it all the Villa has all the mod cons from home plasma TV, DVD, IPOD connection for your IPhone and excellent wireless internet and mobile / blackberry connection. 3G also works brilliantly and although you have no desire to work here it nice to know you can if you want to catch up with the office.
Its is the little attention to detail that makes this place special and we highly recommend it to anyone thinking of a holiday in Koh Samui.
The children just loved the huge beautifully kept garden not to mention the infinity pool and the stunning views, recommended with a glass of champagne. enjoy......

My husband and I just returned from an amazing holiday in Koh Samui. We stayed at a villa called Ban Khao, in the Bophut area, way up in the hills overlooking the waters to the north. This was a truely beautiful villa! There were 4 adults and 2 small children staying there. The villa itself was beautifully decorated in Thai style, with 3 large bedrooms and 2 very nice bathrooms with seperate tub and showers, (one being a stunning soak tub and another a jacuzzi tub) in the living area and master bedroom on the first floor, french doors opened to a beautiful large patio with 2 seperate table areas overlooking an infinity pool with 6 loungers and umbrellas. The large living area was equipped with a TV, DVD player, and a sound system, kitchen was very well equipped too. We also had the pleasure of being extremely spoiled by Star and her husband Levy who live on the premises and care for the villa. Every morning Star had the table set for us outside and an enormous continental breakfast waiting for us!! And when we wern't looking had our rooms made up, window shades pulled up and doors opened to the beautiful senery. She even placed fresh flowers from the garden throughout the house every few days and lit candles/oils with fragrance every evening for us. We were definitly spoiled and did not want to leave! We would highly recommend this villa for a wonderful holiday. This place is great for kids too---the entrance is gated and has a large yard and pool area. Space for everyone.
