Baan Luxor
Reviewed 4 February 2013

I had a lovely time with Jan and his team. The villas are facing the shared pool and if you're lucky, you can meet other families staying in the other villas. Although Baan Luxor is not on the beach, we hired a car (very cheap rates) and drove to many different beaches during the day. Otherwise we would laze by the pool. The villas are clean, functional and very nicely decorated.
But most of all, we felt very welcomed by Jan's warm and friendly attitude. Thanks Jan for a fabulous and memorable stay.

We stayed at Baan Luxor Villas for 3 nights and we are very pleased with our stay. The villa we had was clean, spacious and was nicely decorated. The pool was right on our doorstep and for most of our stay we had it completely to ourselves which was a nice bonus! Away from the absolute center of the hazzle we enjoyed a relaxing stay and felt very at ease. We also booked Jan for a one day guided tour around the island. He was an excellent guide and took us to many interesting places. We would highly reccomend this! Overall our stay at Baan Luxor Villas met our expectations and more so. Thank you, Jan, for a lovely stay!

Room Tip: This is absolute value for money if you want a relaxing stay! You will have no worries and feel so a...

After many web searches and heaps of review reading, we decided to brave it and book Baan Luxor. If you are like us, nervous about booking a private villa.. Don't be. From the moment we arrived at the airport with Jan's welcome sign we were in heaven. When we arrived at the Villa we were like 2 kids at Christmas.. The Villa was gorgeous!! We walked in, our mouths open - lots of oohs and Aarhus, and Jan said go up and look at the master bedroom. Wow.. Gorgeous room with balcony overlooking pool and private spa in corner... Totally private. We had the best two weeks at Baan Luxor, and I cannot recommend it highly enough. Jan & Kye were adorable.. They were there if we needed them for anything...whilst at the same time leaving us alone to our privacy. Baan Luxor is 4 Villas, designed so that one is not looking at the other... Total privacy. the pool is shared but it is not a problem or intrusion on you pleasure. The whole experience of staying at BL was wonderful. We are a couple in our 50's, we like our comforts, and we like our privacy.. Baan Luxor delivered on all our needs and expectations. If you are reading this review, and are looking for an alternative to the rules, restrictions and expenses attached to a resort - book BL you will not be disappointed. We were paying 300 baht to go into Chaweng, easy - you just walk down the drive and flag a taxi. Some of the reviews mention difficulty with taxi's we did not find this to be the case... Jan is also available when ever you need to drive you. Wonderful... Just do it!!

I stayed at Baan Luxor with 3 of my girl friends for a week and we really enjoyed it! Immediately it felt so comfortable and safe, within a day we were calling it home. On our first night Tanida welcomed us and even took us to the grocery store in her car which was so lovely of her. We were even able to text her our questions when we had any and she would check up on us to make sure we were okay. The rooms are lovely and the balcony beautiful. We particularly loved the pool which felt so private and has a shaded area too. The secure gate into the villas made us feel very comfortable. Although sometimes a bit tricky as not all the gadgets as you would have at home, we were able to cook meals in our kitchen and the large space in the loungeroom even allowed us to do exercise! It was so lovely to wake up in this place. If day time you can quite easily walk down to the main street for a taxi but the staff are happy to help organise a taxi pick-up and we found the most lovely taxi driver who would always come to get us! It is located quite close to the supermarket, the beach and the airport so is perfect. Thank you for our stay, we really enjoyed it and recommend it to anyone! Also any thing that anyone has complained about on this website has been addressed and improved on :) The only thing we would suggest is that the towels be exchanged and bins taken out during the stay as we couldn't do this, and maybe a couple more beach towels! Otherwise, perfect.

We gave just got back from a beautiful two and a bit week stay at Baan Luxor and loved it. From the stunning saltwater pool and lush gardens to the private outdoor jacuzzi off the main bedroom, this villa has it all. The owner Jaan was just outstanding, drive me to the supermarket and showed me where everything so was as soon as we arrived so we could stock up and keep the four children happy. Drove us many places, offered advice on food, shopping beaches, boat trips you name it. He couldn't have done enough for us, thank you Jaan for being such a wonderful host and ensuring that we had everything wee needed. If you are looking for a private, beautiful Villa that is close to Chaweng and Bophut this is the one. The kids loved it, my husband loved it and do did I. Will definately return to Baan Luxor!!!

We have had the most amazing time at Baan Luxor, the three villas here are fantastic and unbeatable value. The villas are modern and extremely well equipped with so much space! Three couples could holiday here with complete comfort and pay very little to have such luxury!.

The main benefit with Bann Luxor is the lovely Jan and his partner,Gai. Jan is like having a personal assistant, always at hand if you need him for any help, advice, booking trips, taxis,takeaways etc. Included in the price is a collect and return service to the airport which is most welcome.

The location is great, a short distance from Chaweng if you like it " busy" and the lovely fishermans village at Bohput if you prefer a more sedate area to eat/drink. Do not miss the street market there on a Friday, it's a brilliant evening. Start it off with cocktails on the beach and eat your way up and down the streets,brilliant!

We did a couple of trips, Jan booked these for us, Ang Thong marine park was a great day out but our favourite was hiring a fishing boat for the day , we had the best day ever, fishing, snorkelling and lunch on a beautiful beach, all for £100 for the four of us. Our skipper even barbequed the fish we caught in the morning!

Jan will taxi you wherever you want to go, costs are included in the welcome file, he even does an island tour. Jan arranged a car for us so we did our own exploring with his guidance on where to go, the best beaches etc.

If you don't fancy eating out Gai will fetch you a takeaway which is fantastic and excellent value, there are so many restaurants to try, all vary in price. We loved Red moon at fishermans and the restaurants fronting the beach are all worth a visit.

We cannot recommend this villa highly enough, it is of course made perfect having Jan to help you make the mst of Koh Samui. We paid a little extra to have our villa cleaned everyday, Gai did a marvellous job, we came home every day to fresh towels in lovely designs and the villa sparkling.

If you need any more information please contact me.

Thank you Jan, you were amazing and your villas are brilliant. Love to you and Gai and we hope to see you again !

I stayed at Baan Luxor with my wife and 2 of my sons (21 and 15) for the whole of August 2010 (I've had to put 2011 as TA won't let me put 2010!!!). I promised Yan at the time that I would write a review, but as is the way of life, never got round to it. Now, dreaming of warmer and happier times, and as I look out onto a dark January European evening, I found myself reminiscing about Koh Samui, and decided to check out the reviews on TA as a sort of 'vicarious' vacation. Anyway, Baan Luxor, Jan and Gai made our stay one of the best months of my life, and I can only agree with all the positive reviews about this place, and feel sorry for the people who only managed to leave Baan Luxor with negative feelings. Yes, you need transport, no there isn't AC downstairs, but quite honestly this is nothing compared to the quality of the rooms, the pool and the villa in general. Personally I found plenty to do in the local area, running down to the beach, buying food from the local stalls, or just chilling by the pool. When you feel the urge to visit the madness that is Chaweng, or the delights of Fishermans village, or the captivating beach at Choeng Mon, then jump in your rented jeep, and 10 minutes later you're there!!.
We will definately be back!!!!
