“Nature speaks at Baan Kilee”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2014

I was there for a friend's birthday party in October. It was my first time to Koh Samui and while I had my honeymoon at Krabi over a decade ago, and have been to various resorts in Thailand for company's team building since 1997, Baan Kilee tops the list in terms of design, location and management for a luxury beach resort. For people who are used to busy marathon schedules of packed meetings/conference call, it will be a refreshing immersion to recharge at the Baan Kilee, especially with good friends. Just let time flow on by itself. Swim and dine whenever you like with a ready to serve staff. I arrived half day late and missed a boat cruise. Did my first yoga class. While there are activities that one can do outside of the resort, I ended up spending most of the time at the resort as it was a beautiful place ... when one is finally not in so much of a rush there may be moments of appreciation ... and wonder if nature is whispering ... I intend to go back for a team building event.

Baan Kilee is recommended for couples and/ or group functions. I was there with my partner in Nov 2013 as part of a bigger group party and found the place lacking in nothing at all. It is peaceful, beautiful, staff are lovely and you get to have a massage in your own room. The rooms are very nice - we stayed in a villa for 2. Highly recommended for couples. Would go again.

Just spent five days at Baan Kilee as part of a fitness escape. Khun Rose and her team did a magnificent job of looking after our every need. The villa has excellent rooms and fantastic sports equipment for those who don't want to sit around a pool all day. They have kayaks and SUPs available, as well as other equipment such as a volleyball net and TRX Cross Trainers. The food was healthy and divine, will definitely bring my extended family next time. Would highly recommend.

We just spent a wonderful week at Baan Kilee. We had 3 generations celebrating a 70th birthday. The villa catered for all ages with a playground and paddling pool for the youngest through to kayaks and a paddle board for those a little older. The huge infinity pool running along the front of the property is superbly designed with loungers in and seating all around the pool together with a shallow area for children. The beach is beautiful white sand and clear blue water. There are numerous loungers around the pool on the lawn and a hammock to round it all off. The villa has two large indoor dining rooms the larger which could seat 20 or more. All the rooms were large and well appointed the master bedroom being enormous with two additional beds which was perfect for the family with 2 boys under 3. At least 2 of the rooms had outdoor showers and extraordinary marble baths off the bedrooms. There is an enormous media room with a projection screen and countless DVDs with seats for 12 or more people.
However the over arching element of what made our holiday was the service of Rose the villa manager and her staff. We had two birthdays where dinner was set up on the lawn just above the beach. For one Rose was able to find a fire dancer for a show on the beach that was quite mesmerising. She organised vans to the various sites around the Island and a trip to the five islands that the villa overlooks in one of the traditional Thai fishing boats. Her staff spoilt our 2 youngest both under 3 years and would often entertain them for extended periods of time.
We ate all our meals at the villa where the staff sourced the food and cooked to our requests. We had a great range of meals and enjoyed their many recommendations taking full advantage of the great local seafood.
The 6 bedrooms with 3 having the potential to accommodate an additional 2 children gives the property great scope to cater for families. We only used 5 of the bedrooms.
We would have no hesitation in recommending this property.

We spent nearly a week at Baan Kilee in October and were blown away by the experience. Hands down, it beat every experience we have had at the top resorts in Asia due to the way it catered for families with children. We were a group of 2 families with 6 children ages 2-10. From the moment we entered the gates and closed them behind us (to keep the kids in) we never felt the need to leave. We kayaked, paddle boarded, swam and snorkeled in the calm and shallow waters off the lovely beach in front of the villa. We even sat and watched as the older kids did the same, allowing them some independence and adventure and yet feeling that they were completely safe in the lovely waters. We spent countless additional hours in the beautiful infinity pool overlooking the beach and the very well laid out living areas around the pool. The kids loved the in-pool bar and ate many meals there, not even having to leave the pool. They also watched a movie from there - a real treat for them. The bedrooms are luxurious and really well laid out for families and groups with lots of special spaces where extra beds are tucked away to accommodate young children and additional guests. The kids favorites were the lofts above 2 of the bedrooms which are very comfortable and spacious. We didn't need to use them for sleeping as 4 of the villa's 6 bedrooms easily accommodated our group of 10, but the kids thought they were the coolest thing ever. The food was amazing and the villa Asst. Manager and Chef were wonderful at suggesting new dishes to try to expand our Thai food horizons, while equally offering some of the most delicious takes on our favorite curries, fresh spring rolls, and salads. Daily massages, wonderful staff, fireworks/wish lanterns and lots of water and pool toys made this the best family holiday ever. I can't wait to return.

Thanksgiving Nov 2013 at Baan Kilee on Koh Samui with friends was sensational. The villa itself is spectacular and nicely secluded with the facilities and staff tremendous on all accounts. The rooms are beautifully decorated and are all individual in both entrances as well as decore.
The team of staff headed by Rose are wonderful and literally meet with your every request with a smile and whatever it is - is done immediately.
The food (you supply yourself) is prepared by the Chef for all meals. Breakfast was leisurely and catered for the early rises, beach walkers as well as the sleep in laters who partied well into the early hours. The eveing meals were a standout - The Turkey feast on Thursday 28th was a Thanksgiving never to be forgotten - there a variety of dining locations encompassing two very large dining areas as well as a beautiful meal on the lawns beach side under the stars lite by flaming torches finishing with the release of Thai flaming lanterns into the sky.
Nov is known as the wettest month and we had our fair share of sporadic down pours but remarkably it did not dent the 5 day stay at all. The rotation of inhouse provided Thai-styled massages were a big winner and lazing in and out of the pool or in the ocean was just heaven.
This villa is absolutely ideal for small grouped weddings or in our case groups of friends or a combination family stay. We had 15 (5 couples with 5 children in total) staying and between the pool, ocean, poolbar, kitchen bar, TV/entertainment room and your choice of numerous sun lounges - either half submerged in the pool or scattered around the pool, grassed area or beach - You just couldn't go wrong.
It is a litle hard to find - but once located you tend not to leave the villa.
I can highly recommend Baan Kille for a tremendous group stay - we stayed at Chaweng Beach for a couple days prior arrival so got our fix of the bar/restaurant/shopping scene there which was very good and sooooo much better than Phuket.. The best part was we got that all sorted first and then relaxed and enjoyed everything that Baan Kilee had to offer to wind down.
As always people make it - the friends on this stay, both old & new were great and the staff under Rose's supervision at Baan kilee just took our experience to a much appreciated higher level.

We had a group of 15 comprising of adults and children (families and singles), and all of us were over-awed by this wonderful holiday! The setting is even more wonderful than it appears in the photos, and sitting overlooking the infinity pool and the beach watching the sun set of an evening was an experience we will never forget...the ultimate in relaxation!
All the bedrooms/bathrooms were amazing, and the dining areas were the ultimate in indoor/outdoor dining, with day-beds located directly behind the main dining table for a little lie down after dinner.
Rose and the staff were amazing. We were treated like royalty on arrival, and the staff were very attentive to any of our needs. They were very easy to speak to about arranging day trips and activities, and would always discuss with us the best way to do things ensuring we had a great experience with good value for money. And the food was fantastic...aroi! We gave the chef a rough idea of what we wanted to eat that we chose from the menu, and the chef would add or remove dishes to ensure a well-rounded meal. I would be surprised if I could eat such wonderful food for 8 days straight anywhere else!
All in all an amazing holiday, that we are definitely planning to do again! Thanks Rose and Co., we hope to see you soon!

Room Tip: All the rooms were great!
