Thailand » Koh Samui » Taling Ngam » Baan Asan



Arriving at Baan Asan after a gentle drive through the quiet countryside, you are immediately struck by the privacy and peace of this serene beachside location on Samui’s south west coast. Throughout the villa modern architecture is balanced with Asian objet d'art and paintings carefully selected from around the region, adding an oriental twist. Stunning contemporary living spaces, a spectacular master suite, and four luxurious poolside guest pavilions (two of which feature adjoining children’s rooms with bunk-beds) offer every imaginable comfort and make Baan Asan a fabulous destination for a get-away-from-it-all group, couples or family holiday.
Ten stylish sun loungers present comfort by the pool – which extends its tempting waters through the middle of the villa. Lounging here, whilst sipping a mojito made with fresh mint from the Baan Asan herb garden, is certainly an experience not to be missed. Alternatively, indulge in a relaxing jacuzzi or lie back and cool off in the smaller overflow pool – also an ideal spot for little ones to enjoy a paddle. Children are well-catered for at Baan Asan: not only will they love sleeping in the two bunk-bed rooms but they will be thrilled to have their own supper party at the wooden table on the lawn and go combing for shells on the safe, shallow beach.
There are plenty of activities for adults and older children too. Kayaking, swimming and a stylish cinema room keep everyone entertained, while for health enthusiasts there's a fully-equipped glass-fronted gym. More sedentary pursuits are possible in the library with its stunning sea views. Outdoor speakers and a Bose sound system help create a relaxing atmosphere in the living and poolside areas, and each of the bedrooms boasts its own individual iPod-friendly stereo.
Dining arrangements at Baan Asan are delightfully flexible; from a formal dinner for fourteen on the giant boat-shaped teak table, to a light supper served outside on the terrace at sunset. The staff can even set up a table directly on the beach or lawn looking out over the ocean if that is your desire. Delicious seafood barbecues, local food and international cuisine (provisioning extra) are served up effortlessly by the chef and his efficient team, with individual care and attention paid to every guest. After dinner, drinks in the cosy sala (relaxation pavilion) overlooking the beach make a perfect end to a perfect day.

Location


Baan Asan is located directly on the beach, with only one neighbouring villa on the right hand side. The beach is peaceful and quiet and well worth exploring. The view of the marine national park is spectacular and as you walk further round the bay you will find a few exclusive beachside spa resorts and restaurants. You can also walk to the traditional village of Baan Taling Ngam with its southern style houses, and small selection of shops.

About Taling Ngam


Baan Taling Ngam boasts two pleasant beaches separated by a steep, rocky headland. This is one of Samui's most secluded locations and the local village is also one of the few remaining traditional communities where life continues as it has done for decades. However, thanks to the nearby resorts and local beachside dining options, there’s still a reasonable choice of places to go if you do want to venture out to eat. You can also rent boats to visit the offshore islands of Koh Taen and Koh Matsum, passing the dramatic, uninhabited Five Islands on the way. The nearest town of consequence is Nathon, 10km to the north. This is the island's port and administrative capital with banks, supermarkets and souvenir shops lining its main street. Heading south takes you to Tong Krut (5km) a sleepy fishing village similar to Baan Taling Ngam. Lamai (15km), on the opposite coast, is Samui's second largest tourist town and a bustling centre for dining, shopping and nightlife.


About Koh Samui


The third largest island in Thailand, Koh Samui is just 21km at its widest point and 25km at its longest. The hinterland consists of forested limestone hills and the shoreline is made up of countless coconut palm-fringed beaches and bays.

Traditionally a coconut plantation and fisherman's haven, in the last few years the island has grown into a major holiday destination with regular connections to Bangkok and direct flights from Hong Kong and Singapore. Despite rapid development, Samui is small enough to retain its charm and its modest size also makes it a convenient, laid back location even during busy seasons.

As well as fine beaches, Samui is known for recreation, relaxation and fine food. The blue waters of the Thai Gulf provide a wealth of possibility for water sports, while on land the island is well known for its professional and indulgent spas and health retreats. Fresh seafood is a specialty at most of Samui's restaurants, but you can also enjoy food from almost every corner of the globe thanks to the island's strong international influences.

Each beach on Samui has its own particular character and ambience. The east coast beaches of Chaweng and Lamai are busy, commercial areas with everything from beach vendors to fast food chains, while to the north, Bang Rak and Bo Phut have a more relaxed local village atmosphere. Beaches like Lipa Noi and Laem Set on the western and southern shores feel much more remote and untouched.

Koh Samui combines comfort and convenience with a sense of real escape and this has made it a popular choice for residential as well as tourist development. The island is an eclectic blend of nature and sophistication, one that draws repeat visitors every year to indulge in its tropical delights.

Our review  Overall Rating: 8.20


Our stay at Baan Asan really felt like a retreat away from the hustle of every-day life. The pace shifted down a gear as the whole family adjusted to the natural tropical environment and our luxurious and very private surroundings. The kids adored the bunk-beds and having their own bathrooms as well as waking up early in the mornings and jumping into the pool. The efficient manageress ensured that we were well taken care of with her constant yet respectful attention and was very approachable for information or assistance. The master suite was a retreat within a retreat for us grown-ups, and having a designated office/library was helpful when we needed to check in with the outside world. Dining on the beach was unforgettable as were the sunset cocktails in the sala surrounded by comfy cushions. We found that after a few hours out exploring the island we were thrilled to return to the comfort of the villa. For us, Baan Asan struck the perfect balance between spacious and luxurious communal areas, intimate and private bedrooms and practical, well designed facilities, all located on a quiet beach renowned for its magnificent views.


Rooms

Bedroom: 5
Sleeping Capacity: 14
Location: Koh Samui

Set on two rai (3200sqm) of land, Baan Asan is spacious as well as private, with high walls surrounding the garden and stunning tropical plants creating a lush setting for the bedroom suites and 20m infinity pool. The sheer size of the open-plan living and dining room is rivalled only by the view from the floor-to-ceiling glass doors which extend across its entire frontage. This – combined with the room’s high ceilings – imparts a sense of space and luxury; whilst the black tiled floors and white walls create a contemporary feel which is complemented by ultra-modern fans and an enormous teak dining table comfortably seating fourteen. The living area is the perfect place to gather, with its collection of uniquely designed chairs and sofas lending comfort to the stark, minimalist theme. To the left of the living and dining area is a large, super-modern kitchen with a central work station of stainless steel and a stylish hob. Bread-makers, juicers and gadgets abound and a second staff kitchen connects. A separate cinema room, to the right of the living room, features a 42-inch flat-screen TV/DVD player and extremely welcoming sofas whilst a stylish floating staircase leads up from the dining area to a fully-equipped glass-fronted gym which links – via a walk way – to the office/library. This is also the route to the upstairs master-suite, situated on the third floor. The master suite boasts floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the ocean. Carefully selected furniture, such as the fabulous purple king-sized bed, is exhibited against the white walls and teak parquet floors. ‘Floating’ walls separate multiple living spaces that include a modern kitchenette and breakfast bar and luxurious lounge area with a 50-inch flat-screen TV/DVD player. A private changing area leads to the lavish bathroom suite with a huge bath tub and walk-in shower. Four independent guest pavilions reflect the Chinese elements of Earth, Fire, Wood and Water with stylish colour schemes in green, red, brown and blue. The rooms each have stunning modern ensuites complete with terrazzo bath tub and shower. All of the pavilions have 32-inch TV screens with satellite channels, CD players, mini bars, safes and king-size beds and, in a piece of thoughtful and practical design, the two pavilions closest to the living pavilion include cosy children's rooms with bunk-beds, plus their own bathroom and private entrance. Outside each pavilion, comfortable terraces feature elegant outdoor furniture.
