“Still amazing after 7 years”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 May 2014

This was our third visit to Baan Sawan Villa, and although it had been 7 years since our last visit, the villa, the staff and the whole experience was still as lovely as we remembered.

The villa is as beautiful as ever; well appointed and extremely comfortable. The huge, lush, green garden had matured and was a stunning decadent addition to the terrace and pool area. The views across the valley below the pool terrace, out to the Bohphut beach and the islands beyond were magnificent, both day and night.

The on-site staff: Star and Levy went above and beyond to assist in any way they could; including preparing delicious meals, organising a private chef to come to the villa, suggesting restaurants and making reservations where necessary, as well as keeping the villa, the pool, terrace and garden looking immaculate for us, throughout our stay. All of this was done with minimum fuss, and intrusion and always in a friendly and helpful way.

A car is advisable as the villa is situated at the top of a long, steep hill, high in the hills overlooking the Bohphut area and beyond (but this is one of the things that makes it so spectacular). Levy arranged this for us in advance and a suitable vehicle was delivered to the villa on our first morning. Levy was kind enough to drive for us, when we didn't feel like driving, or the desire for a few cold beers with dinner was too much! A car gives you the flexibility to visit other beaches and other parts of the island, none of which are very far (it took us less than 1hr 15 minutes to drive around the whole island). Driving is on the left and is easy and we never had any issues finding suitable parking.

There is really nothing I can add, but to say that I'm sure you won't be disappointed if you decide to visit. Hopefully we will be returning soon.

The views and location of this villa together with the exceptional service provided by the hosts Star and Levy. She made it so easy to relax and enjoy the family time together. Together they arranged everything and to have breakfast laid out every morning in front of the view was such a treat. She is a spectacular cook and organised all the food shopping so all we had to do was sit down and relax and enjoy it. This made being on holiday with grandparents and no husband a dream as everything was taken care of. I will defintely be back again with my husband next time so he can enjoy their hospitality too and of course the views! I wanted to wrap them up and take them home.

We spent 10 days with our adult kids. We had a warm welcome by Levy,Star ( villa manager) and Oozie, their little friendly dog. Everybody agreed Baan Sawan is a dream place to be in Koh Samui. The incredible views, the nice breakfast put together by Star and the quiet time spent at the pool were precious and will be memorable in our mind for a long time. The villa is very clean and decorated with fresh flowers all the time. The garden is well taken care by Levy. We wish everybody could enjoy this place once. We definitely want to go back in the future!

Just had the best week at Baan Sawan, awesome location with stunning views over Bo Phut and out to sea. Villa was always clean and top selection was served for breakfast. Star and Levy were very friendly and helpful. Ozzie the dog was an unexpected bonus. Hope to go back.

My husband, our 1-year old and I stayed 1 week at Baan Sawan together with my sister, her husband and two kids (4 & 6)
The house was very nice and clean, there were pretty flowers for us when we came.
Star and Levi (The house keepers) are very sweet and caring, they took good care of us and especially our little boy.
We had a great time there and would very much like to come back sometimes.

Because the villa is up in the mountains you need to drive every time you want to go somewhere, but this is not a problem because Star will book a car for you.
She is so helpful

just the perfect place if you want to enjoy fantastic family holidays !!!!!
incredible view, so nice employees (thank again Star, Levy and Joy - for the baby sitting), the villa is perfectly maintain full with flowers, many toys for our kids, very good food, everything to make us happy ...
If like me you are doubting to come because of the commentary "terrible" just forget it, we had the true story : it was a gay couple that was " destroying" the house after invited a lot's of local people from a disco ...
so if you are a normal family (especially with young kids) or a romantic couple that want to be pamper for few days, that is the place to be !
But if you are going to kho samui to leave very "special" experience with local people, make mega fiesta non stop ... find another place, because this villa is really quiet, really nice and far away from the crazy koh samui ....

Room Tip: you have to know that 2 bedrooms have to share 1 bathroom .... for us no problem but be aware of it...

Thank you Star and Levy for such a wonderful holiday. The view from the villa literally took my breath away! Every thing we needed for the two babies under two was there at the villa- from toys to monitors, cots to cups, anything we needed was there. The villa is beautiful and tranquil, the pool spectacular, the gardens immaculately maintained and the kitchen fully equipped to cook up a storm. Star can arrange whatever you need- trips, taxis, even a massage while the children nap.. Bliss! Thank you again and we will see you soon!!
