Villa of the day: Baan Celadon in Koh Samui

When your pool is barely steps away from your bed…

The basics

Few villas really nail sleek, modern, luxury resort design like Koh Samui’s Baan Celadon. The highlight is the enormous open-plan living area that seamlessly merges indoor and outdoor to make the most of those sunset views and Andaman Sea breezes from every angle. The villa can accommodate eight in its four peacefully decorated bedrooms, which all include en-suite bathrooms and a roomy balcony or terrace. There is also a stunning infinity pool, sunken lounge, media room, cable TV, sound system and free WiFi throughout. 

Loving that indoor/outdoor life

The best bits

You can have all the evening plans you want, but we’ll bet that it’s game over once you see the enormous L-shaped infinity pool and beautiful lounging area. There really is no better place from which to soak up the incredible sunset views, cocktail in hand.

We also love the level of attention to detail in the design, fittings and finishes. This is truly one for people who appreciate quality.

The villa also comes with a maid service, driver and private chef, Khun Bee, who visits the markets daily for fresh meat, seafood and vegetables and cook anything you like from the Western/Thai menu (meals are additional).

The perfect night’s sleep, coming your way

Who it’s for

Families or small groups of up to 8/10 who have an eye for design and simplicity.


Baan Celadon sits on a cliff 100 metres above Bang Por beach, west of Mae Num on the peaceful north shore of Samui. It’s 15 minutes to Fisherman’s Village and 25 minutes to both Chaweng Beach and Koh Samui International Airport.

Al fresco dining at its best, complete with your own private chef

Food & Drink

The in-house chef can cater for both Thai and Western tastes, but as you’re also perfectly positioned between the W and Four Seasons hotels, if you fancy a night out you’ve got options for bars and restaurants. If it’s date night ideas you need, we’ve got you covered here.

We also recommend scrabbling down to Bang Por to join the locals at the beachfront food stalls for some of Samui’s best Thai-style seafood.

Take a speedboat tour of the marine park, spend a day island hopping or scuba diving, go elephant trekking, fly a kite on the beach or check out our six must-sees. 

Personally, we think you’ll find it hard to drag yourself away from your villa. Book it here, from US$1,000 per night.
