Villa of the Week: Baan Hinyai

The basics

Tucked away along the quiet Lamai beach, this unique five bedroom villa awaits your arrival. Baan Hinyai literally translates to grandmother’s house – the villa was in fact named after the famed Grandfather and Grandmother rocks. You’ll find yourself pampered in the lap of luxury and comfort here.

This fully staffed beachfront villa boasts a unique and contemporary architecture style with lofty ceilings and dramatic roofs. All five ensuite bedrooms come with unbeatable views and standalone bathtubs. Also, each bedroom also has a private balcony.

Even though there are plenty of excuses to enjoy the privacy of your own suite, you’ll find everyone gathering together in the open-plan living areas; it’s fully equipped with an entertainment system, and it opens out onto the pool and deck.

Baan Hinyai is the perfect getaway for stylish jet-setting families and friends looking to relax, recharge, and reconnect with each other.
