Exclusive Escape at Baan Kilee
Taking centre stage on Koh Samui’s exclusive Lipa Noi Beach, this stunning holiday property provides an enchanting coastal retreat for families or groups of friends looking to get away from the chaos of urban life.
Luxury Villa Baan Kilee is without doubt one of Koh Samui’s most impressive and appealing holiday properties. Boasting eight bedrooms, six bathrooms plus a wide choice of indoor and outdoor living space, this breathtaking beachfront mansion offers a true luxury tropical oasis for sophisticated guests from around the world. The villa is located on Koh Samui’s sublime sunset coast with 30 metres of prime beach frontage and spectacular views out towards the Gulf of Thailand’s famous AngThong Marine Park. It’s an easy 30-minute drive to Samui’s international airport and a choice natural attractions can also be easily reached by car.
Baan Kilee comfortably accommodates up to 18 people, including children, and offers guests a fabulous array of private facilities. Highlights include a swim-up pool bar with stools right in the water for the ultimate holiday cocktail moment, a wall-mounted big screen projector so guests can also watch movies without ever leaving cool of the pool, a dining sala by the beach and a kid’s playground and play room to keep younger guests entertained. The villa even has a bedroom suite that doubles as a plush private spa room and a dedicated yoga area for those that want to keep up with their asanas.
Baan Kilee offers the perfect balance of traditional Thai décor and smart, modern style. The accommodation is spread across several villa buildings, all of which feature extensive glazing and open apertures to create a seamless connection between indoor and outdoor zones. Richly-hued timber clad ceilings and wooden floors accentuate the tropical feel, and an open plan layout enhances the sense of space throughout the property. There is always somewhere to sit and relax in Baan Kilee, and the expansive communal living space is peppered with plush daybeds and plump cushions. The decorative scheme is stylish yet understated, which allows the shimmering sea views to do the talking. The outside area is divided between shaded tropical gardens adjacent to serene ponds, and sunny areas overlooking the pool and ocean where you can enjoy the ocean breeze.
The professional services provided by Baan Kilee’s team of six staff are second to none. Several of the team are multi-lingual, which means there is always someone on hand to provide assistance and advice – whether that’s freshening up the dining room before guests arrive for dinner, pampering you with an aromatherapy Thai massage or recommending a day trip itinerary that will keep the kids enthralled. Other members of the team include a resident chef, a chauffer, security guards and waiting staff.
While Baan Kilee is the ideal tropical retreat thanks to its secluded location on laid back Lipa Noi Beach, it’s still only 40 minutes from the main tourist centre, Chaweng, for visitors that want a taste of Samui’s most bustling tourist attractions. The property benefits from its close proximity to the beach, and during low tides season when the reef dries out for up to 100m, this stretch of sand provides the ideal location for beach volleyball, shell collecting and treasure hunts. The villa also comes equipped with sea kayaks for those who would like to explore the ocean a little more. In the local area, a handful of rustic Thai restaurants offer the chance to sample some authentic Thai cuisine and the global brand Nikki Beach Samui offers more sophisticated dining and beachside entertainment options.
