Baan Silavaree offers the ultimate private island escape on a hidden tropical hillside that boasts breathtaking views across Koh Samui's palm-clad coastline and out to the mesmerising island-peppered waters of the Gulf of Thailand.The villa is part of the exclusive Santhikiri Estate on Koh Samui's untroubled southwestern shore – an area known for its pristine beaches, meditative views and incredible sunsets.
In recent years, this part of the island has become a favoured choice for sophisticated guests in search of barefoot luxury and absolute privacy.
The materials and designs used at Baan Silavaree have all been carefully chosen and created to blend with the untainted natural surroundings.
The villa itself includes striking architectural features such as an 18-foot high thatched ceiling framed with thick teakwood beams, and the main building is surrounded by redwood balconies.
Imported limestone decks frame the property's 12-metre saltwater infinity edge swimming pool, which also boasts 10mm thick glass borders and rattan pool furniture.
Providing around 550 square metres of total inside and outdoor living space, with lush landscaped grounds and waterfalls covering over half an acre of private land, Baan Silavaree offers guests a rare opportunity to experience refined but authentic Island living.
Built on multiple levels into a dramatic forested hillside, Baan Silavaree boasts contemporary Asian style and luxury in abundance. Upper and lower level landscaped entrances invite visitors into the compound through antique Indonesian Batak doors, past cascading waterfalls.
Once inside, the villa's main two-storey building looks out over the infinity pool to the ocean beyond, and houses an open-plan living and dining area on the upper floor, as well as two guest bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms.
Two stand alone one-bedroom ensuite villas sit either side of the main building and boast contemporary four poster beds with custom-built teak wood cabinets in their mezzanine bedrooms. The private living rooms feature 3.5 metre sliding doors that ensure guests wake to breathtaking seascapes every morning. Furnishings include sink-into sofas, coffee tables, armchairs and cabinets with hidden doors for the flat screen TVs and DVD players. A well stocked mini fridge, hot water heater, coffee and tea making facilities are also included for guests' convenience. Each of the villa's bathrooms is fitted with teak surround sunken baths for two, indoor and outdoor showers, imported limestone mosaic tiles, imported slate or limestone floors, teak counters, and also boasts spectacular ocean views.
A separate area downstairs on the pool level is dedicated to outdoor cooking, with a covered barbecue area, separate kitchen, bar and dining space. An outdoor shower and changing room is accessible for those using the pool, while behind the main house, between the bedroom villas, a lush back garden features a magnificent waterfall and provides the perfect spot for afternoon tea, picnics, or meditation.
The villa's design and layout encourages guests to make the most of Koh Samui's gentle climate and Baan Silavaree's soothing tropical surroundings. The architecture draws in the views and breezes and even the climb to switch between daytime relaxation by the pool and dreamy sunset views on the upper floor terrace feels healthy, building the appetite for an evening meal under the stars, with the twinkling lights of fishing boats on the horizon.
Baan Silavaree is one of the unique luxury villas on the Santhikiri Estate, an exclusive residential community on Koh Samui's idyllic southwest coast, comprising 24 individual sites, with 19 homes, communal tropical gardens, a common area swimming pool and a yoga sala. The estate is privately owned and managed by the resident community, providing 24/7 security staff and site management. The villa also comes with a private vehicle and is a short drive from the award-winning Kamalaya Wellness Sanctuary and Holistic Spa Resort.

Located on the south coast Laem sett is off the beaten track being some distance from the main Koh Samui ring road accessed only by small roads and tracks.
The beach at Laem Set for much of the year is a large expanse of sand which stretches out 200m and there are times when it is not possible to swim in the sea as it is too shallow.
Whilst very relaxing with no shopping or nighlife nearby, the town of Lamai with shops bars and restaurants and a beautuful beach is just 20 minutes away.
