Baan Luxor
Reviewed 22 June 2009

I stayed here with family ranging from granparents down to 6 months.
is a nice villa although not as clean as it could/should be and the kitchen was not very well equipped (no can opener ).
There is air conditioning which we were told we could not leave on even in 1 room for the baby (being told we should not take baby to hot country).
If we left it on the owner who lived on site would let himself in and turn it off.
The pool was a lovely pea soup colour for several days as the filter was turned off for several hours each day .
There were no half decent english tv channels.
The young Thai (boy) cleaner was observed shooting small birds from the trees outside villa.

This is unfortunately another "review" left by the members of the same family and following the same claims. I have addressed them under the other "reviews". Carbut in addition mentions "no half decent english tv channels" and "the young Thai (boy) cleaner was observed shooting
small birds from the trees outside villa". Both of these claims are untrue. We have about 12 channels in English here including BBC
World, Network Australia, Fox News, Bloomberg, Nickelodeon cartoons, Zone Reality, Euro Sport, Mnet Series and ALL DAY MOVIE channel Mnet
Movies! But if Carbut overlooked the fact of being actually in Thailand on holidays and found this selection was not decent enough to be happy about I suggest that Carbut should have stayed home and not travel half-way across the world because the best selection of English channels is in England. As to the "shooting small birds from
the trees" activity how many birds did Carbut actually observed being blown away from the trees? This claim also implies that we do have
firearms at the premises here which we DO NOT. Plus we actually care a lot about the birds that visit us. Not only they look good and make pleasant noises but also provide some degree of protection from insects consuming our greenery and beetles killing the coconut trees on Samui. So what did actually Carbut see? I presume it was somebody playing with a toy-gun at the most.

Our adult family of 4 had a really chilled out time here. There are four superb villas and a good size shared pool which has pretty shrubs and plants.
Our villa had 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, kitchen, laundry room, dining and lounge areas with large T.V and DVD player, plus private seating outside and padded sun loungers.
The fittings and furnishings were all classy and comfortable and the owner is on site if there should be a problem or you need a taxi or car hire. Taxi to Chaweng is 200 baht (about £3.20) or car hires cheap if you fancy driving around the island, we planned to do this but when we arrived at this little oasis it was so nice that we didn't venture further than Chaweng.
We have stayed in 4 star hotel before at Koh Samui but Baan Luxor was a superior holiday experience that I would recommend for families or group of friends.....its a bargain too, compared to renting 2 rooms at a good hotel we were far better off here and had so much more space.
