Thailand » Koh Samui » Lipa Noi » Baan Kilee

Versatility and decadent luxury are the keys to Baan Kilee. Whether it is a magical tropical wedding on the manicured lawns overlooking the almost always deserted powdery white sands of Lipa Noi Beach and the turquoise waters beyond; or a grand scale beach-side party to give the villa surround-sound music system a work out; a WiFi’d retreat for executives to strategise; or a private pampered retreat for a family or four to holiday in one of Koh Samui’s most idyllic locations - Baan Kilee works. Indeed it excels.     

With six bedrooms-each contempory Thai and ensuite - the villa can sleep up to 22 people without impacting one’s enjoyment or remotely feeling crowded. Clever designed mezzanine levels, annexes and daybeds conjure up 10 beds for children in addition to the regular 12 for the adults. Such is the scale of the property and the practical design; there is ample space for all to congregate - whether watching the projection screen TV in the media room, having meals in the casual breakfast room or in the more formal dining area. For more ‘self time’ try the lazy lawn side hammock, schedule a relaxing treatment on the massage deck, retreat to the air-conditioned bedrooms each equipped with TV and DVD, or sink into one of the many sofas or easy chairs sprinkled throughout (including some in the picturesque 17.5m infinity swimming pool). For the kids there are kayaks to explore the bay, a games room stuffed to the ceiling with toys, table tennis and a proper size playground, volley ball, a separate kids pool and of course the picture perfect beach.     

Led by the indefatigable and charming Khun Rose, a team of six staff ensures everyone has a great time. A steady stream of meals (Asian or western), snacks and drinks come out of the modern kitchen prepared by the fully trained chef who will even undertake all the provisioning (on guests account). Butler service, fitness and swimming instruction, massages, babysitting and excursions with car/drivers can be arranged (all extra), it is small wonder that Baan Kilee is popular - whatever the event.


Baan Kilee is one of a cluster of exceptional private villas on the quiet western side of the secluded Lipa Noi peninsular. There’s nothing of consequence in the immediate vicinity of the villa, which guarantees complete peace and quiet. The beach is gloriously sandy and the sea is ideal for swimming year round and boasts beautiful views out to the small islands of the National Marine Park and across to the mainland. Facing due west, this is also the best beach on the island to enjoy the tropical sunsets. A small jetty for ferries to the mainland sits a few hundred metres left of the villa, its only impact being the occasional distant announcement of a departure. Local life centres on a small fishing village towards the end of the bay, which is also one of the chef’s sources for delicious fresh seafood.

About Lipa Noi

One of Koh Samui’s best-kept secrets, Lipa Noi boasts three kilometres of curved white sandy beach smack in the middle of Koh Samui's west coast. With its local village ambiance and laid-back beachside vibe, Lipa Noi makes an ideal destination for family holidays or a special getaway with friends. If stunning sunsets, calm crystal waters, fine sands, swaying coconut palms and a selection of exceptional private luxury villas tick your boxes, then take a closer look at Lipa Noi.

The picturesque sandy beach here is one of the best on the island for kids, and there’s plenty of shade from the coconut palms lining its edge. Calm and very shallow water means year-round safe swimming and a good choice of watersports, and although Lipa Noi is only five minutes from the mainland ferry pier, it is the most serene and untouched beach on Koh Samui’s west coast. For a carefree family holiday, Lipa Noi is hard to beat.

You’ll find plenty of places to eat, both on and off the beach and a massage under the shade of a palm tree, with views across the island-speckled waters of the Gulf of Siam, is easy to fix. Lipa Noi is also close to a number of popular Koh Samui attractions, including the island’s main waterfalls at Namuang, the Magic Buddha Garden high in the hills, and Paradise Park Farm, a family friendly adventure with a hilltop pool, animal and bird feeding and amazing views.

Although Lipa Noi and the west coast of Koh Samui is better known for its peace, quiet and exclusivity, it’s also home to one of Samui's trendiest beach clubs, the Nikki Beach Resort, which draws visitors from across the globe.

With some of Koh Samui’s most sought-after accommodation located close to the beach and in the lush forested hills above the ocean, a Lipa Noi luxury private villa holiday is guaranteed to deliver total rest and relaxation.

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: 9.00

It is rare to find villas like Baan Kilee. We visited as a group of families and it worked an absolute treat. The kids had a ball and fell into bed exhausted each evening giving the parents time to enjoy their vacation. The staff could not have been more welcoming and accommodating; they continually smiled despite being run ragged all hours of the day by demanding parents and children. In true Thai style the kids were taken under their wing from day 1. The food was exquisite and cold drinks, teas, coffees and snacks just kept on appearing. The villa itself is well designed - practical, functional and eminently flexible. All the bedrooms are generous and have good bathrooms. We have no problem recommending Baan Kilee - it is one of the best villas we have seen.

An outstanding location for a surprise 50th birthday party. The house is stylish and immaculate and worked well for our party of 8 adults and 4 children. Having the open kitchen was a big hit with everyone as we mixed our own drinks (our choice) and waited for the next awe-inspiring dinner. Dinner in 3 different locations around the house for 3 nights - each more wonderful than the last. Truly exceptional. All our guests raved - we all travel frequently and there was only praise for the staff. Jet skis came to the house, someone to braid my daughters hair, a trip to the local market, daily massages at the house - everything was arranged with the greatest of ease.

The heart of Baan Kilee is the swimming pool, set in wide lawns that drop onto Lipa Noi beach. From here the common areas, starting with the poolside sala (gazebo), massage deck and outdoor dining space, lead back into the gardens and to the bedroom pavilions. The stone terrace, decked out with sun loungers and sofas links the pool to the crisp well-equipped modern kitchen whose foldaway doors invariably stay open. Here, with the brains of the Sonos-zoned music system, a projection TV and well-stocked fridges, the breakfast bar becomes the nucleus of daily activity.

Moving back is a casual breakfast room with low-slung chairs and a long table for 14 (more if a second table is used) and a media room complete with projection TV and blackout curtains. The raised dining pavilion has foldaway doors allowing the sea breezes to drift through (there is air-conditioning too). A long wide dining table allows for formal dinners of up to 20.

The six bedrooms are all housed in individual pavilions. Above the dining room is the extravagant master suite, which boasts a terrace, huge sunken bath and separate rain shower, all with commanding sea views. A king bed dominates the wooden-floored, vaulted room. Off the rear is a small annex room with twin beds suitable for children. Either side are the pavilions for bedrooms four and five, one double and one twin. Both incorporate clever additional twin bedded mezzanines accessed by pull-down loft-style stairs within the ensuite bathrooms (bedroom four is shower only). Back towards the pool are bedrooms two and three, both doubles with modern bathrooms including outside baths and separate showers. Bedroom two sits overlooking the sea with a wide terrace that spills into the pool. The dressing area incorporates a built-in single bed, ideal for a child.

At the back of the property is the kids’ room furnished with a king bed plus a single  bed and a wall of draws stuffed with toys. It opens onto a small lawn featuring a kids pool and playground. All rooms are air-conditioned and enjoy TV with DVDs.
