We had a really unforgettable week staying at Baan Saitara. The villa we stayed at is Villa 2 and the sea view is fantastic. Open living area with everything you could ask for. Fully equipped kitchen that we can make our onw meal and enjoy a coffee or tea. The maids come to clean the villa every day which I found really nice. (I've stayed in some other villas on this island, not many can do every day house cleaning except for hotels) The swimming pool is very clean, they have a guy coming 3 times a week to look after it which we appreciated it a lot.
The reason I like this villa so much is it meets all my needs: it's spacious, clean and well equipped, like your own home. It has maids, pool guy, a manager etc so i can reach all the services I need. (The manager Cat is always there to assist you, answering your questions and organizing car rental for us) it's in Lamai, a relatively quiet area, but with a car, you can go anywhere on this island (the island is not big and roads are not complicated, most attractions are not far to drive to. this areas have two big supermarkets, some night markets, some very nice restaurants and cafes etc). And the price is quite affordable compared to the villas those providing similar services. Would def come back.
Stayed at Baan Saitara for about 2 weeks in December with 4 adults and a 2 year old toddler. Stayed one week in villa 4 and the remainder in villa 8. Absolutely gorgeous villas with stunning south east views of Koh Samui. Both Villas are spacious, clean and luxurious…we were often content just relaxing and enjoying the villa making occasional trips into Lamai area for supplies and food. The villas are of quality construction and nicely renovated each with its own private pool overlooking the beautiful vista. Villa 4 is a bit smaller (3 rooms) and simpler while villa 8 is larger with four rooms and better furnished (kitchen with large island, entertainment systems, network printer, desks, nice traditional thai art, etc.). The only downside to villa 8 is that it is situated higher on the hill which means you need to take a flight of stairs to reach it. On the other hand, with Villa 4 you could park your car directly at the front doors.
Each villa is fully equipped with everything you need. From nice wide screen TVs with 100s of English and Asian channels, fully equipped kitchens, and all the towels, bathrobes and linens you need; to comfortable couches and beds for relaxing and sleeping. The villas also have good wifi coverage. At first the wifi and one of the air con units (for the living room) were not working well when we initially checked into villa 4. Ricky took care of these problems right away and had them both fixed by the next day. Villa 8 actually had very goof wifi and had three access points just for that villa.
Very kid friendly and safe environment for my toddler. The villas are situated high amongst the hills so a car is really a must have (and easily arranged through Kat or Ricky). Villas are cleaned daily as well as the pool and staff are friendly and nice. Ricky and Kat are fabulous hosts and always available to assist. They really go out of their way to make sure you stay is as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. We were provided free transfers to and from the airport. They also provide you with a local cell phone for convenience and so that you can contact them at anytime.
I highly recommend Baan Saitara for your Koh Samui experience. Just like another reviewer mentioned, I almost don’t want to give this rave review in case it makes it harder for me to book in the future. This is definitely a little hidden gem and a great value.
As a business traveler I have stayed in some very nice hotels around the world, but I have to say that staying here was one of my most memorable and satisfying experiences. The villa is situated away from the bustle of Lamai and Chaweng yet only a few minutes drive to experience those areas when we wanted. The villa was a beautiful beautiful, spotless and extremely comfortable and had top of the line finishings? The pool was incredible and we spent many hours enjoying it. The views from the villas are amazing and we could not stop taking pictures of the sunrise and how the sea changed colors throughout the day. Ricky and Cat were very attentive and helpful and the other staff was incredible and attended to our every need. I could go on ad infinitum on the merits of this villa but will just say that we couldn't have been happier staying here. Thanks to the staff - well done!
We stayed for 10 days and had a great vacation. Perfect house for a family of 5 with 3 adults and 2 kids.
Perfect view over the sea, lots of great places to visit and perfect service from all people, cleaning, pool guy and the manager.
We can only give both Ricky and the place, Baan Saitara, our best recommendation.
We stayed here from October 6-13, 2014 and have a fabulous time! The villa was exactly what was shown in the pictures... only better! It was quiet, clean, beautifully decorated, and had amazing views! Kat was nice enough to make sure the cook and rental car were both ready for us.
Our kids loved the pool and appreciated someone coming and cleaning it 3 times a week. Also, having a maid clean everyday was very nice.
I would highly recommend hiring the chef. Her food was some of the best we had in Koh Samui. It was so nice to have her come, cook, and clean up for us. It let us enjoy our vacation and villa even more.
We had a memorable vacation and hope to return again soon. I would highly recommend staying here!
The villa we stayed in (Villa 8) is made with ALL natural materials, marble, granite wood, and stone, no man made materials. They have a water purification system for drinking water using reverse osmosis, and the best part is that our pool and jacuzzi, which is part of the pool, uses a UV system which purifies the water to almost drinking quality, and NO CHLORINE. Three rooms have king size beds, and in suite bathrooms, and one room has 2 twin beds and an in suite bathroom. The living room and master bedroom have large screen LCD TV's with over 200 cable channels, among which 50 are English, including HBO and other movie channels. They have fiber optic internet with about 30MPS. The Kitchen is fully equipped with all major appliances and with GOOD quality cooking equipment, and utensils. DAILY MAID SERVICE is included. The villa is located in a great location for touring around the island but is in a quiet tranquil setting. The views cannot be beat and sipping a glass of wine at the pool during sunset while sitting in the jacuzzi is an unforgettable experience. Cat and Ricky are extremely helpful and provided airport pickup and much needed advice about dining venues and tourist attractions. The price is amazing in terms of the value. Cannot be duplicated on the entire island. This is a perfect tranquil villa for a couple, couples or a family.
Lamai is a quiet town with a number of excellent restaurants and beach bars as well as an exciting nightlife. Enjoy antique and handicrafts shopping, spas and a number of activities. Lamai is only 15-20 minutes to Chaweng beach and the airport and several minutes drive to a number of more secluded beaches.
Other Activities: Kite surfing, ATV riding, snake farm, butterfly gardens, go kart racing, elephant trekking, island tours, kayaking, bowling, rock climbing
