We were a group of 12 adults, 8 children and stayed at Baan Kilee (6 bedrooms) for 6 days for a birthday gathering. The configuration of the villa layout is excellent in that individual bedrooms are well spread out, therefore private, two of which are bunks (above bathroom) and big enough to sleep adults (if push comes to shove!). On each side of Baan Kilee, are two additional villa houses, Baan Ora Chorn (4 bedrooms) and Baan Puri (8 bedrooms) which share a common grass area on the beach front with Baan Kilee.This means that if you are a larger group as ours became for our last 3 days, the accommodation can be easily expanded, while meals can be centralized at Baan Kilee.
One of the advance considerations in booking Baan Kilee was wheelchair access as one of my friends is wheelchair bound. Rose the house manager had pre-arranged a ramp to be built which was installed from the dinning room steps down to the main villa area which gave pretty much full villa access, apart from the front lawn due to some steep steps. Suite 2 facing the sea front was the most accessible; my friend was able to get in and out of the swimming pool by himself such was the stepped configuration of the pool. The pool also has a wonderful configuration for both kids and adults, since a kid’s pool is located near the kitchen which means parents can keep a close eye as for our visit the kitchen area tended to be our hub.
A continental breakfast is included within the daily villa charge, which is buffet style. Bacon, eggs are charged extra and therefore are not supplied unless ordered which seemed somewhat trivial.
The in-house Thai chef, K Nat was excellent and cooked food that we selected from a main menu each evening for next day’s lunch and dinner. Nat arranged kids western food each day on a separate table; it’s not often to hear kids not complaining about food, or not eating when they travel but such was the selection which Nat made (for kids) that this was indeed the case.
Apart from the excellent food and service, wine was served in a very timely fashion, whether we seated 12 people or 25 on our last night, glasses were rapidly filled without prompting.
The great thing about the set up of this villa is the flexible policy of management, there are are no rules or restrictions on bring your own drinks or snack foods. There is a large fridge within the kitchen area for guests and an esky outside which is well stocked with ice as required.
If you are thinking to leave Baan Villa in search of better food or ambiance outside, don’t do it as you will be disappointed !^!.
My Husband and I recently got married at Baan Kilee and stayed here for a few nights around the wedding. Baan Kilee is really such a wonderful place. The layout is similar to a small resort with small villas making up the layout. Everything has been thought of here, and the team at Luxury Villas and Homes have done a great job, right down to the little things like aloe-Vera lotions and candles by the bath.
The rooms are all of an extremely high standard, and the beds in each of the rooms our family and friends stayed in were extremely comfortable. The furnishings are modern and comfortable and really make it feel like you are in a 5 star hotel.
The pool and beach area are spectacular and maintained to a very high level – we spent many hours lazing in the pool with a cocktail in hand! There is everything you need if you are a family with kids, there a children’s pool and excellent playground!
Rose and the staff at the villa are really amazing – they leave you wanting for nothing, everything is always clean and tidy, and their service is not intrusive in the least so the villa is still absolutely private. The Chefs at the villa are also amazing – I can really say it was the best food we had in Koh Samui during our 2 week stay, and price wise very very good value for money. Rose is a true asset – she organized the BBQ the day after our wedding which was fantastic!
Our family who stayed with us cannot stop raving about how wonderful this home was, and we really look forward to being able to come back and re-live all the happy memories we have of our time here!
The wedding which was organized by the Signature Weddings Team was also spectacular – all that we had dreamed of – they did an amazing job (i will put a separate review up for that).
Thank you to the whole team at Luxury Villas and Homes and Baan Killee – we have amazing memories we will treasure for a lifetime!!
Second trip to Baan Kilee and it was as idyllic as we remembered. Rose and her staff ensured that we wanted for nothing. Outstanding service, food, facilities and location made for a perfect 2weeks for all 8 adults and 9 children. The children were treated like family and loved every minute. Heaven can be found at Baan Kilee.

The place is beautiful. Kids and adults all love the villa and the pool. The service from the staff is top notch. The foods was excellently prepared. Management Sid did an excellent job of accommodation and services. We have 12 kids with the group and none of them wanted the trip to end.
