Baan Sawadee is absolutely amazing! It is so modern, brand new and hence in an absolutely flawless condition!
The four bedrooms are of decent size for two people each and the fact that every one of them has a private bathroom gives you the required privacy if you stay together with friends, for example. All of them are well arranged with different pastel color schemes and lovely handcrafted details.
The house is built to open up towards the terrace with the pool and the sala. You literally will just wake up and open all doors and leave them open (Maybe in the evening close the "mosquito net doors" if insects decide to show up - we did not have much of an issue with that).
We enjoyed sitting in the Sala in the evening watching across the pool (which has a nice lighting) into the woods and listening to the sounds of nature.
The Location ist great. The House is located in an area called Santi Thani which is a residential area in the north of the island at Bang Po Beach. While the whole Santi Thani development spreads out a couple of a hundred meters up the (sometimes very steep) hills, the Villa is in the lower part which is great as it means that you can easily walk to the beach (just 10 min. walkway) and many restaurants and a Family Mart close by. At the same time it is at the dead end of one of the side streets. This means that you will have absolute privacy with nobody passing by - except the host of the Villa who lives a few meters further up :)
The host, Emma, is an amazing! She was always available, before and throughout the stay to answer any questions we had or fulfill any of our requests. On the first day Emma welcomed us with a nice Breakfast and sat down with us and gave us very good recommendations for restaurants, beaches and pretty much anything else you can find on Koh Samui. She lives on the island for more than a year now so she really knows where to go on which occasion and what to avoid. Do not hesitate to stay! We would be happy to come again.
