We just returned from 9 nights at Ban kaew. This is my 4th time to Koh Samui and this time as a family with two children. We took a 1 bed Dara villa which had two king beds, en suite, living area and outdoor Sala upstairs plus a huge downstairs living area with kitchen, living room, toilet and dining area.
There weren't many reviews on TripAdvisor so we weren't sure, but I was so happy with the choice.
Pros: beautiful garden setting, huge villas, has a traditional Thai feel, you get a sense of space, small and boutique like rather than a resort,
really beautiful ornate furnishings, absolutely lovely staff, markets across the road, close to the Fishermans village and a massive new Buddhist statue behind, bophut night markets.
Cons: the pool is quite small (but still immaculate), the villas are all open plan downstairs ie they have no doors or windows so it's quite hot and mosquitoes are around, however the staff are vigilant at lighting the coils for you so it wasn't a holiday spoiler, it's on the main road so at first walking along the main road with the pram was a bit dodgy, but the Thais give you lots of space. You also don't notice the road once you're in the complex.
I can't say enough about the staff there. They were so nice. And one highlight was for my husbands birthday they cooked for us - highly recommend. Some of the best food I've eaten in Thailand and so nice to have it all made for you in your own villa.
Thumbs up and thank you Ban Kaew!!!
Dangerous and Poorly run hotel. Will NOT be back!
Opinión escrita el 19 de Agosto de 2015
If there was an option here that's less than terrible, I would choose it.
The brick wall that surrounds the shower fell over during our stay and Ban Kaew. It was a single layer brick wall that was stacked on top of each other but nothing to bind it together! It was a very tight fitting bathroom, so tight that you have to walk in, close the door to get inside and open it again to get through to the toilet. This makes the brick wall incredibly dangerous as if the door was open in a hurry the brick wall would fall over.
I was in the shower with my toddler who is running around being a 2 year old and just nudged it and the wall fell over! We all fell over together. We both hurt ourselves but it was nothing serious. If the wall fell over on my toddler, she would be dead so it was very dangerous and a stupid design.
It took me a while to stack it back up and I wrote to the owner of the hotel - Thomas Andereggen, as during our stay, there was literally no one in the whole hotel. We only saw the cleaner once who spoke no english. I told the owner that we hurt ourselves and that it was dangerous and if he could fix it. I received no reply from him about this.
I received an email the next day from Thomas who completely disregarded my email about the wall and instead sent me an email saying that there will be some people who will be checking in next door and if we could not talk to them about how much we’re paying as he gave us a discount that I had no knowledge about.
Obviously as we were the only people in the deserted hotel in high season, he was desperate and gave us a discount.
He wrote back with a very pathetic apology saying that till this day, he’s never had a problem with this wall and he’ll look into it. He said that he sorry but he didn’t have time to reply to my previous. I found it odd that he did however have time to email asking me not to talk to my neighbours about the price. I felt like he didn’t care for the well being of his customers but more about money.
I walked around the hotel and looked at the other villas and noticed it was left really dirty with rubbish everywhere. I found mouse poo and ants everywhere in our room. The hotel was well designed but that’s the only positive thing that I can say. There is a bar, restaurant and front desk, but it was all closed and locked up the whole time we were there. The hotel felt abandoned with no one running it.
We definitely will not be back and do not recommend this hotel.
Amazing place to stay

These villas are secluded and beautiful, and are an amazing place to stay in koh samui. They're located in a great location, close to food and massages but not in an overly tourist zone. A great place to escape.
Ban Kaew Villas - Home away from home.

Every time we returned to our villa after a days sight-seeing around Koh Samui, it was like arriving back home - the weight of tired feet and blissful exhaustion was immediately lifted just by opening the front gate to this gorgeous place. It's hard to put my finger exactly on what it was that made the Ban Kaew Villas so lovely - the amazing grounds the were lovingly tended, the amazing accommodation that was so roomy, exquisitely furnished and relaxing or the wonderful staff that personalised everything about our visit.
With a fully equipped kitchen the option to purchase produce from the local market across the road, or grocery basics at the Family Mart right next door is a great benefit, and it's a simple 10 -15 minute walk to Fisherman's Village where a range of dining options abound.
I have no hesitation in highly recommending this property to future Koh Samui visitors. I definitely will be returning there if I am fortunate enough to get back to KS.

tout près de fisherman...en face du marché de bophut pour les fruits et manger le midi à un prix dérisoire...3 mini markets à coté..wifi excellente..
direction et personnel au top..10 jours dans la grande villa, rien à redire...tout le confort...petite piscine mais bien entretenue et bien exposée..
seul bémol, comme partout à samui... le bruit des motos...
