Villa of the Week: Baan Asan, a beachfront family retreat

The basics

Baan Asan is a villa in Koh Samui with 5 bedrooms, 8 bathrooms, a pool and direct beach access.

Who it’s for

The villa sleeps up to 10 adults plus 4 children in bunkbeds, so it’s good for a big group of luxury lovers on the Koh Samui holiday of a lifetime.

Baan Asan faces west, which means you get the beautiful sunset pouring in straight at the villa grounds. It is about an hour’s drive from the Samui airport or the busy Chaweng area, depending on traffic. The villa enjoys its own quiet stretch of the beach, which you can see clearly from the pool.

The best bits

On the ground floor, four of the ensuite bedrooms are in individual pavilions located around the pool, so you can go from bed to pool any time you want. Just don’t forget sunscreen! The pool has a shallow section for kids and a jacuzzi, too. The master bedroom gets the most privacy, as it is located on the second floor of the main house, above the gym and library.

The four suites on the ground floor open directly to the pool area.

Baan Asan is also a family-friendly villa – two of the bedrooms by the pool each have an adjacent room with bunkbeds for kids. A baby cot can be provided free of charge if needed, and extra beds are also available at USD50++ per night per person (daily breakfast included). Baby sitting services can be arranged at a fee, and will require a 4-hour notice.

You won’t have to skip family movie nights while you’re there – there are hundreds of titles to choose from to watch together in the living room. The relaxing getaway doesn’t stop there: treat everyone to spa treatments (extra charges apply) at the seaside gazebo.

Food & Drink

All guests will enjoy daily breakfast, but for other times of the day, a private chef can prepare meals, at the cost of groceries plus a service fee. Of course, dietary restrictions can be accommodated.

Things to do nearby

The beauty of Baan Asan is that it is located in a quiet area of Taling Ngam, with nothing but greenery in the back and the sea in front. That’s not to say that you’re cut off from the Samui action. Lipa Noi beach, famous for its pristine white sand, is a 10-minute drive from the villa. Nature and wildlife enthusiasts should venture further inland to attractions like Na Mueang Waterfall and Safari Park, which is just 20 minutes away by car. Also not far from the villa is the seaside Taling Ngam Caves; if you’re headed there, you could make a detour to the Elephant Gate for photos.
