Villa Name: Ban Kinaree

Nestled in the heart of tranquillity in the hills of Bophut, Ban Kinaree strikes an idyllic balance between contemporary grandeur and Thai-Balinese timelessness.

The walk-through the entrance area with its solid wood carved door and water features gives away the atmosphere from the first step into the villa.

Ban Kinaree is made of 3 separate pavilions harmonized in a terraced compound setting with luxuriant and lush garden landscaping.

The smallest pavilion hosts one bedroom; the largest and main pavilion features the large living/dining/kitchen as well as the 20 meter terrace overlooking Bophut Bay on the first floor, 2 bedrooms occupy the ground floor; the third pavilion hosts the master bedroom and the 5th bedroom on the ground floor.

The layout of the property and the garden setting provide both ample privacy and comfort to everyone when desired and also allows great entertaining when opened up as a complete residence.

Each of the bedrooms has been designed to provide optimum comfort and privacy by featuring oversized sleeping area and grand bathrooms with both shower and a large bathtub. All bedrooms are equipped with a TV and DVD player and full length sliding doors with a view to the ocean.

The focus of attention at Ban Kinaree is centred on the large infinity-edge swimming pool, which reaches out to a stellar view of greenery and ocean. The pool Sala presents a full bar and BBQ , one may also indulge in the privacy of the Jacuzzi attached to the pool.

The villa location, up in the Bophut hills and 10min drive from the Bophut "Fisherman Village", provides Guests with stunning sunrise and sunsets settings while dominating the neighbouring island of Koh Phan Ngan and being a short drive away from the beach or nearby restaurants.

Phuket Girl - Oct 28, 2013   

We had a great stay at Ban Kinaree. It just makes you feel like home. What i love the most is the location as you are on top of the mountain. You see a very nice view of Samui. The weather is great in the morning. It was cool and sunny. I love to wake up early reading the book or jump into the pool. The swimming pool is big with a nice jaguzzi. The kid love it so much. Rooms - there is 4 bedrooms. Each bedroom is big. The bed is comfortable. I love the bathroom. It is huge and has a big bath tub. My son loves to fill the bath up and roll in there forever. Ha!! Service - The service is amazing. As it is a private villa, staffs is always there when you need somethings. They made a very nice breakfast table. Car park - there is a private car park with the gate for 2 cars. Free wifi, which is great. I find this villa is quite comfortable and great for a big families. There might be a bit of drive uphill but that what i want is the view on top. It is easy to get around Samui as Samui isn't that big. I would definiatly come back here again.

Dear Jun, I just wanted to say thank you very much for giving us an excellent time at Ban Kinaree. All 12 of us said that everything was far above our expectations. We enjoyed every minute, and didn't want to leave! Please pass on our huge thanks to the Villa Staff for their friendly, professional, thorough service. Everything was perfect, and it made us feel welcome and relaxed to be greeted by their friendly smiles each day. Once again, thankyou! We hope to visit again. Regards, Jason.

Monahan - Sep 27, 2011   

We have said that this is the only vacation where we wouldn't change a thing. It was perfect. The weather although rainy a couple of days was so comfortable. When we hung out around the house we were all relaxed and well entertained. The staff, especially Ya helped us plan our days so that we enjoyed the island but didn't overdo. Our food was so superior at the house that we didn't need to eat out and when we did we were disappointed. We enjoyed the area spas, water activities, muay thai, shopping, scenic drives, elephants and hiking. The people were so friendly and helpful that we could not have felt more comfortable.

McKerchar, Daly and Follett-Smith families - Sep 23, 2011   

A very belated email to say a very big thank you for organizing such a wonderful week for us at Ban Kinaree in August. It is very hard to describe to people the breathtaking beauty of the villa and its location on Koh Samui. We spent a lot of time sitting on the balcony, sipping our drinks,looking out over the pool and bay trying to work out whether we could buy the villa!!! You are also very blessed with fantastic staff and I have attached two photos of our 'crew' and would be very grateful if you could print a copy and give it to them. They were all great but Cook Kai was outstanding and you are very lucky that we left her behind because I was sorely tempted to pack her in my case. It was a huge shock to get home and have to cook again after experiencing her sensational cooking! Thank you once again and we hope to see you again. Kind regards, McKerchar, Daly and Follett-Smith families

Paul Barfield & Friends - Sep 23, 2011   

Dear Desiree and Lesley, A belated thank you for making the arrangements and sorting out the final payments for the above accommodation. Thank you also for your kindness in swoping debits and credits resulting in only a small additional charge. This was much appreciated. Thank you also to the staff in the villas for their excellent service and consideration. All of my guests commented on their special charms. Ban Kinaree was the ideal party location and having close friends and family within walking distance added to the charm of the week for me. I will always have fond memories of my 60th and a lot of that will be down to your company. I have thanked my old friend John Birt but would you please now allow me to thank you and ask you to pass on my thanks to all the villas? Back to business. May I enquire as to the availability of Ban Kinaree for Xmas and New Year 2007? I understand from John there is probably a minimum of a 14 day/night booking but that would not be a deterrant. I was thinking of a booking from Friday 21 Dec to Friday 4 Jan 08. Are these dates available and what would the 14 days cost? Happy Christmas and New Year to you both. Yours, Paul
