“Perfect place to stay”

We received a very warm welcome from Allan who also gave us lots of advice and tips. He arranged a car for us, for our two days and nothing was too much trouble. The accommodation was clean and had aircon throughout, we had a lovely basket of fruit on arrival. The kids loved the pool. We wished we were staying a little longer! As a busy mum, I particularly liked that there was a washing machine to use and airer to dry it all on. I would definitely recommend transport if staying here, but would highly recommend the place to others.

“FABULOUS, FABULOUS and FABULOUS”
Reviewed 22 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

Allan and Dana are the PERFECT hosts. Nothing was too much trouble. They even provided a cake, flowers and balloons for our birthday girl - me! The villa was very clean, well maintained and cosy with lots of space. Dana arranged for masseurs to come to the villa ... HEAVENLY !! and if Dana were driving to the shops, she would give you a lift. Taxi there and back to airport very well appreciated too.
We will return !!

“Home away from home”
Reviewed 21 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

Allen and Dana the managers were excellent. The communication even before our holiday began at Baan Luxor was prompt, reliable and very useful. On the first evening as we were not familiar with the area Dana drove us to the nearest restaurant and waited for us whilst we ordered our take away meals and then drove us back to the villa. She was also very helpful and accommodating in suggesting ideas for my mum's birthday. As it was a surprise she drove us to the place so were were able to have a look at it before making our decision, which was extremely helpful and we were very grateful indeed as the place was magical and we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

The Villa was exactly like the pictures…beautiful! It was clean, spacious and the staff were lovely, the only thing missing was a bottle opener to open a bottle of wine! We swam in the pool everyday as it was so inviting and the weather so hot, and it was cleaned on a regular basis.

As we were travelling with my nearly 2 year old son, I would have to say the location was a bit further away from attractions and places than we had hoped. Although we had a pram and we are all eager walkers, it was a bit of a mission trying to dodge the scooters, cars, vans, taxis and all other motor vehicles whilst walking to the Big Tesco, or just down the road to a nearby restaurant. Having said that, we utilised "Navigo " which is an alternative taxi service that was reliable and reasonable rates. If you have an iPhone or android phone you can download the app for free…we found it extremely useful.

Overall we were very happy staying at Baan Luxor and would certainly recommend it to our family and friends.

“Tranquil and Relaxing short getaway”
Reviewed 15 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015
2
people found this review helpful

I would recommend the Bann Luxor villa (made up of 4 villas - we stayed in the Lily villa) to a family looking for a tranquil and relaxing getaway.

Cleanliness & Hygiene:
This is the most important factor for my family - we would be glad to pay more for a clean and hygienic experience. Please do not get me wrong - the villa is not spotless but it has met our criteria - well maintained flooring / stairs / ceiling, clean bed sheets with no funny smell, no pests in and around the villa and a clean Jacuzzi tub - cleaner than some hotel's bathtubs. The only issue we had during the 5 days / 4 nights stay was on the last night, when we observe intermittent brownish running water from the kitchen and washing machine faucet, which lasted for about a couple of hours. The water from other taps were ok though. The hosts took our feedback seriously and they were checking and rectifying the issue as we left.

Space and comfort:
With a family of 3 adults and 2 children (10 & 8 years old), we had ample space in and outside of the villa. We also had an opportunity to utilize the swimming pool (it's filtered water and not seawater), relaxation spot and the Jacuzzi tub as well. All the beddings are King / Queen size and they served us well! The living room couch, dinning furniture and the kitchen (with microwave / oven and utensils / cutlery) were all well maintained.

Service:
This is a very much family run villa and so, please do not expect hotel like services and amenities. However, the hosts (Allan and Dana) took care of us like family - worrying about our safety, advising us how not to get ripped off and making sure that we are well taken care of. They also did their very best to accommodate our requests. The 2-way airport transfer were on time and the first day's trip to the grocery store was very useful for us to get breakfast and other essential stuff, e.g. bottled water.

We also took a half day trip around the island with Dana and she was most accommodating with our requests in terms of length of staying at each sightseeing spots and also sharing with us a fantastic and secluded beach spot for lunch (included in the tour). Upon our request, she also brought us to the island safari for an elephant ride which my daughter was looking forward to. There was no stops requiring us to buy local produce / gems / other stuff at "tourist price". :) The whole tour was flexible in terms of sightseeing spots, we just had to know what we wanted and kept to the overall timing. If you are looking for an experience from a localized expat, this will be it. :)

Tip: I would suggest to get a local SIM card at the airport so that you can get in touch with the hosts and they are very responsive to SMS and calls.

Location:
The villa is in a secluded location, in the middle of residential area which means no loud music... except for the sounds of nature... rustling leaves and gentle breezes. :) We walked to a nearby restaurant about 10 mins away on the first night. However, I would not recommend that mainly because of the traffic and lack of walking pavement - especially tough for elderly and kids. In fact, we got puzzled looks as we were the only people walking along the roads - most locals travel by motor bikes / cars!

For subsequent days, we just timed our activities so that we are in the town during lunch and dinner time. Travelling to Chaweng beach or the Fisherman Village by taxi is only 300-400 Baht one way. It worked out well for us.

Conclusion:
If we go back to Samui again for a relaxing getaway, we would go back to the villa again!
