Name: Baan Luxor Villas
Baan Luxor Villas near Chaweng Beach on Koh Samui in Thailand, are a luxurious complex of three villas sharing a beautiful salt water pool. Located in a peaceful residential area, it is nevertheless close to both the charming fisherman’s village of Bophut, and the popular travel destination of Chaweng, which offers a wide variety of restaurants serving Thai and international cuisine as well as shops, bars and a stunning 4km white sand beach lined with coconut trees. Flights from Heathrow to Koh Samui are operated by several airlines, notably Malaysia and Bangkok Airways, with a layover in Kuala Lumpur. Baan Luxor is a ten minute drive from Koh Samui airport.
Said to be the Most Beautiful Relaxing Oasis available on Koh Samui, this complex of three spacious holiday homes has been carefully designed to maximise the privacy of each villa. Boasting approximately 160 sqm. of living space, each villa is fully air-conditioned and can sleep up to six people in two queen sized bedrooms and one king sized master suite. The décor is modern and luxurious with a flavour of ancient Egyptian mystique and designer furniture throughout. The master suite features a private terrace with two person Jacuzzi and daybed and stunning mountain views. The two large, wet bathrooms are light and airy with glass bricks and skylights above the rain showers. There is also an additional powder room. Downstairs, there is a fully equipped European style kitchen featuring granite worktops and modern appliances, as well as a spacious living and dining area and pleasant, plant-filled atriums that form a link between the outdoor and indoor space. Guests will also benefit from fast, free WiFi, huge LCD TVs and entertainment systems.
Pool and Outside Space
The shared salt water pool and sunbathing area is surrounded by lush tropical gardens, creating a beautiful and tranquil atmosphere to relax in. The pool features a sandstone waterfall guarded by two Sphinx statues and is decorated with an Egyptian Ankh – said to energise the water and bestow health benefits upon the bathers.
Restaurants and Activities
Inexpensive local restaurants and street food stalls can be found just a short walk from the complex, as well as interesting sights such as a bird market and monkey theatre. A short drive will take you to the stunning white sand beach, shopping, restaurants and nightlife of Chaweng, or to the picturesque fisherman’s village of Bophut with its wooden Chinese shop-houses, one of the oldest and best preserved places on Koh Samui. Tip: It’s worth bearing in mind when walking after dark that there is not a huge amount of lighting near Baan Luxor, so a pocket torch might come in handy!
Though far from “remote”, Baan Luxor is tucked away from the madding crowds and could prove a little tricky to find upon arrival. An airport shuttle service can be arranged at an additional charge.
Offering luxurious accommodation in a peaceful location, yet only a short distance from some of the best attractions on Koh Samui, at Baan Luxor you can truly enjoy the best of both worlds.
