“Peaceful and well run”
Reviewed 4 May 2012

Stayed in one of the private villas. Beautiful - looks very similar to the VIP villa photos from another members' photos - not sure what extras you get in the VIP...
the normal villas have a splash pool with jacuzzi jets, sunbeds, same looking bathroom facilities, big screen tv, kitchen with appliances (though only the fridge has a plug - not sure where all the other appliances connect?)

the food from the restaurant with the main pool is very good if you want thai food.

the pool near the restaurant is a lot cooler than our splash pool (due to the size).

there is a gym at this hotel too.


Make sure you tell drivers it's near the Q bar (up the same hilly road)

It is quite an odd place and far from most amenities!

The room was spacious but the bathroom was done in very weird way! I should have taken a picture! Sink toilet and bath in that order, when you sit on the toilet your knees are 10 cm away from the wall and I'm not a very tall 5.7, the shower is on combined with the bath which makes it difficult to use. The place is quite run down and there is a lack of cleanliness.

I like and dislike the big windows, the simple reason is that you get great views but also no privacy, the use of blinds would have been a great idea.

The aircon is also noisy, some nights I woke up thinking we were under attack! but the wifi is ok

The downstairs area is alright, breakfast very basic and pool quite slippery when you get it lol.

We gave some clothes for the laundry and they did not come back on time as promised and the usual "sorry 20 minutes", "sorry 10 minutes' then finally "sorry here soon" was starting to get on my nerves.

So we decided to move to the Fisherman's village but the cream on the top was that when we got charged a 100 BHT per hour for late check out even though we were the only one staying in the whole complex!

To wrap it up, we will never go there again.

A big Thank you to Tik and her staff for making our holiday perfect: my only complaint is we only had 10 days and it was not long enough!
Baan Kao Hua Jook offers the best of both worlds, with the facilities of a Hotel and the privacy of renting a private Villa…
I have to say I am a difficult customer, being a Hotelier myself I have a very critical eye.
When I am on holiday I am looking for complete comfort, cleanliness and good service.
I found everything I was looking for at Baan Kao Hua Jook.
We hired a VIP villa which was completely private with it’s own pool and gardens. Everything was well maintained, the pool is cleaned daily and the maid service was brilliant.. The staff could not do enough for us, it was my husband’s birthday while we were there and the staff arrived with a surprize cake and flowers for him.WHICH REALLY MADE HIS DAY! It is hard to find service with TLC these days but YOU will certainly get what you are looking for here.
The location was perfect as it is situated 1 kilometre from the town so you have the best of both worlds..with the peace and tranquillity of the tropical garden and yet in 5 minutes you can be in the throng of the night life if you so wish.
We WILL be back next year.. and this time we will stay for a month.

Room Tip: The villa's are the best choice for privacy and comfort.

Am on my last day of a one month stay in one of the Sansabai apartments, which I had booked via their website samuibkjresort dot com. These are studio apartments at the ends of the apartment block (the standard apartments are the ones in the middle of the block) and have nice interiors, with marble floors and big windows which let in lots of light (but all can be covered with shades or blinds). The interior design has an Italian/European feel to it, and makes staying inside a pleasant experience. Lighting is also nicely done with several dimmers, creating a homely atmosphere at night.

The bathroom has a bath tub with big shower head over it, there is a small kitchenette with fridge, plates, cups, glasses, basic cutlery and a water boiler (note: some of the photos show extra kitchen items that I added). The apartment has a balcony with two chairs and a table. There's a sitting corner, a small desk with office chair, and a big, noise-free bed with a nice firm mattress. There is a tradional model TV with several dozen channels, including several European satellite ones and a few English language ones including the BBC World News.

The air conditioning, which can be adjusted as required with a remote control, is powerful and effective.

A few weeks ago all the Wifi access points in the hotel were replaced, and now there's at least six new ones in the main apartment building (two on each floor; there's three floors including the ground floor; the hotel has 18 apartments in it I believe, six per floor; plus the villa's). There may also be more in the villa's and one in the pool-side bar/restaurant, which also has a computer for public access. Internet access is quite OK for Samui, with only a few shorter outages on most days on average. These outages are at the ISP end, not at the hotel, which has good in-room Wifi coverage overall. The Internet is of decent speed, with web pages and email coming down the pipe just about as quick as in Sydney, however downloads of larger files can be somewhat slower at times.

The reason for my stay is partly business (am in between contracts and need to work using the Internet) and this place is more than suitable for the purpose. When the Internet drops out occasionally I can do other stuff or jump into the pool - always a nice thing to do when the daytime temperature hovers around 32-33 degrees as it has been in the past weeks.

As others have commented, it is around 10 minutes walk to the beach and Chaweng "downtown". Until you reach that area, you have to walk along a main road which is busy and has no real sidewalks, so you can't walk side-by-side. Therefore only recommended for fit adults, not suitable for older people or young kids. It has a lot of traffic consisting of motorbikes, cars, some trucks, the odd water buffalo or stray dog, and various motorized smaller vehicles which pass close to your side when you navigate this road. However a taxi to anywhere in the surrounding Chaweng area is 200 baht, or you can take a motor taxi for 50 baht or a shared taxi for about the same (some people negotiate some of this down more apparently).

The hotel has a bar and restaurant onsite (next to the pool) which does decent meals at reasonable prices, however I have made it a habit to often have dinner at Chaybung Restaurant, which is a small place with only about five tables just down the street from the hotel, about two minutes walk (walk down the street passing by the hotel to the main road, cross this and turn left; it is the first restaurant you see; I will upload photo with this review). They do great Thai curries, freshly made when you order, and manage to make them virtually free of spice if you ask which is rare (in my experience if you ask without spice in other restaurants you often still get "medium"). My favourite is the green curry but they also do several kinds of red curry, yellow curry and massaman curry for example (and they have a menu of Western foods as well if you don't like curries; don't get the pad thai there however; that's much better at the hotel). The curries are mostly around 100 baht apiece so my meal of two beers and a curry with rice comes to less than 300 baht which is a decent deal. The restaurant is at the lake side which adds to the atmosphere.

Meantime back at the hotel the service is very friendly, staff always smile and go out of their way to assist. All staff without any exception have been amazing during my stay. Service has been excellent, for example I go for a walk around the area each morning, and they wait with servicing the room until I go on this walk, and don't knock on the door or barge in which may happen at other hotels. Towels are changed every day, the bedding is changed every three days or so, and there's two new bottles of drinking water in the fridge each day. Laundry is done at the hotel for 60 baht per kilo, which includes ironing and adding a nice smell (persumably they spray it with something, or they use a really strongly scented laundry detergent or softener). I have a local girlfriend and there is no issue with her staying over (no charge for this as at some other places; they keep ID at reception).

There is a small book exchange in the bar near the swimming pool. It has a couple dozen books in it, in a mix of languages. Best to bring your own books however, given the very limited selection.

Motorbikes (mopeds) can be rented at the hotel. There is also a twice-daily free shuttle to the beach and back. They get you from the airport (if details provided when booking) and bring you back.

Breakfast is not included when booking the apartment on monthly rates, but is available from the poolside restaurant at reasonable cost.

The noise from a nightclub that other people have commented on has not materialised for me. These reports were from a few years ago so perhaps that nightclub has closed. There is a bar up the hill, a few hundred meters from the hotel (called Q Bar) which has music that can be discerned in the distance on weekend nights, but the volume is so low that it is hard to imagine anyone being kept awake by it, it is basically almost inaudible.

All up, this has been a great stay for me and I can thoroughly recommend it: not only for holidays but also for business, such as in my case where I need a quiet place that has a desk, decent Internet access in the room and good air conditioning, whilst not being too far away from the lively streets of Chaweng Beach. Apparently some people stay here for months on end doing work on their laptops, and not surprising as this place is excellent for it, also given their attractive monthly rates. The entire team of staff have been among the best I have experienced in hotels anywhere: extremely friendly and helpful, very efficient and customer-oriented, yet unobtrusive - across the board: a BIG THANK YOU to all of you!!
