I recently spent a holiday in Koh Samui and stayed at Ban Suwan.
I enjoyed every minute of my stay there.
The villa was equipped with brand new furniture and the layout was well thought with three large rooms and living room, patio area and private swimming pool overlooking Chaweng.
I particularly liked the fact it was so quiet and every day I could enjoy having meals outside.
The kitchen is large and fully equipped.
One must note you definitely need a car or motorbike to get to the villa as it is situated quite high up in a hill, but that has got the advantage to have a great view of the sea and surrounding area, and the silence with just the sound of the birds during the day kept making us fall asleep by the pool, and at night time the sounds of the animals truly gave the felling of being in the jungle.
The communication with the owner David was seemingly easy with him trying his upmost to accommodate my needs or requests.
Overall the price I paid to stay at this superb villa was around the same price I could have paid at some 4/5 star hotel and sometimes less and that's why I think it is amazing value for money considering the quality of the accomodation and service provided. That fact that there was no set check-In/check-out time meant the villa was ours from our early arrival to our evening departure to catch our midnight flight back to Europe.
In fact, I can't wait to return there and enjoy some quality time in fabulous villa.

We stayed at Baan Suwan in May, it was excellent value for money, the villa had just been refurbished so everything new and fresh. Located on a private development, the villa offered great jungle, town and sea views, close to Chaweng and still gave us the feel of being near the jungle.
The area is quiet and peaceful both day and night so we spend most of our stay sitting on the terrace relaxing and taking in the view's. Being only few minutes from the centre of Chaweng with all its restaurants and shops you could need, this was the perfect location for our holiday. We hired a car thought the local agent who looked after the villa during our stay, as a car or moped is needed if you want to leave the villa on a daily basis, if not taxi's are sufficient.
We will differently come back and stay.
