“Highly Reccommended!! Privacy, Freedom and a clean house everyday!”

I stayed here with 3 mates for 9 days. The Manager (Manu) and Staff (Phon and Nai) were all amazing. We could make all the noise we wanted without having to worry about disturbing anyone. We would wake up every morning to a clean house and breakfast on the table. Nai was an amazing cook. We had a big BBQ near the bali hut which was great also. The price of dinner was restaurant prices (obviously more expensive than street food). We were given a phone with everyone's number in it and were told to call at anytime. Then place was amazing and a view to die for. It takes about 10min to get to Chaweng. Just out the noisy part of the town.
The hill going up to the villa was steep but quite enjoyable! The taxi/limo can pick you up and take you anywhere on the island for 500baht - 1000baht ($15-$30).
They have a great sound system which you can wirelessly connect your iphone/ipad too.
We will definately be back!

Best sunrise view of Samui just in front of your bed. Private swimming pool..living room..all is perfect for laying down with your special one. It's difficult road to get to the villa with the steep curve..so we just wanna stay in Baan Sethai all day.

“Luxury with Breathtaking Views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 March 2014 for a stay in March 2014

I traveled with a large group of 10 people, and chose to stay at Baan Sethai because it has 4 bedrooms. We were delighted once we saw the villa - the place is enormous with large open areas such as the lounge and pool area. It comfortably fit all 10 of us.

One of the first things we noticed was the infinity pool. Not only was it fun to swim in, it overlooks Chaweng Noi beach, providing breathtaking views. What you see in the pictures is what you will get - a stunning backdrop.

All of the bedrooms are spacious and comfortably furnished. The property also has 5 bathrooms, which offered convenience.

The most impressive aspect of our stay was the service. A couple of staff members lived just below the main villa complex, and were contactable round the clock. They would routinely maintain the villa whilst we were away and offered various other services such as laundry, calling cabs and even picking up our pizza delivery. Our property Manager was also extremely helpful - she provided information about Koh Samui and helped us with our transportation around the island.

If you want to enjoy the peace and quiet of Koh Samui, away from the bustling Chaweng Beach area, you will thoroughly enjoy your stay at Baan Sethai.

“Amazing experience”

Villa Baan Se Thai was an impressive experience - Certainly, the expectations were extremely high before arriving, due to great reviews and even greater photos. But the Villa doesn't seize to amaze you once you enter.
The swimming pool and the views are just extraordinary. The rooms and the entire villa is just perfect: large bedrooms, with nice bathrooms, very clean and all have amazing views.
Not to mention the staff: they were very kind and helpful, and the food they prepared was super-tasty. We had breakfast every morning and had dinners and barbecues a couple of times. Although eating in the villa is a bit pricey, it is a must! Very big thanks to the hosts!!

And the manager, Jazz, was very open and helpful, she shared a lot of information with us regarding the activities around, transport, beaches, etc.

A slight downside is the remote location. Many taxis do not know to take you to the villa - we got lost a few times, but after the first days we learned the way so it was easier. The villa is really up in the hill, so it is not recommended to walk. Taxis are priced reasonably, so negotiating you can always reach acceptable price.

Overall, amazing experience, and I highly recommend the villa to everyone!
Hopefully we'll be back again
