The Banyan Villas are located within a small beach development on one of the quiet palm fringed beaches situated on the north coast of Koh Samui and provide self catering accommodation for up to 14 persons.
Banyan Villas, built in the Balinese style of spacious accommodation are two villas almost mirror twins of each other, sharing in both size and general living arrangements.
Rather unusually eating and sleeping areas are situated on the ground floor of each villa, with daytime living spaces and balconies on the upper level where cooling breezes can more easily blow through.
Both Banyan Villas are identically furnished, combining elements of western and Asian style, providing high levels of comfort and practicality
The European style kitchen is fitted out with modern cooking appliances and has an adjacent dining room. Eight adults can eat in comfort while enjoying the view through patio doors that open onto the pool area.
A hallway with powder room leads from the dining area towards the master bedroom that has its own patio doors also looking out across the swimming pool. The bedroom is furnished with a king-size bed and positioned on a raised plinth. Adjoining the master bedroom is an en-suite with double sink, shower and dressing areas, and an external Balinese-style bathroom featuring a screened-off bath and shower.
The second and third bedrooms each has an en-suite shower room.
Banyan Villa 1 has an additional bunk bedded room with a small en-suite bathroom, air-conditioning and is ideal for children but will accommodate adults too.
All main bedrooms have fitted wardrobes and come equipped with both air-conditioning and colonial-style ceiling fans.
A wide staircase leads from the downstairs dining room to the spacious lounge area on the upper level of each villa. Furnished in a mixture of bamboo and Chinese style teakwood furniture, the lounge is also where you will find the bar, with a full stock of glasses and a second fridge to keep the beers suitably chilled. Entertainment facilities include a stereo system, widescreen television, DVD player and True Visions Gold satellite channels.
Patio doors open onto the balcony that looks down onto the pool area below, and leads along to the Sala, a great place to enjoy sea views while taking a sun-downer in the gentle evening breeze.
Each Banyan Villa is built around a pool as central feature of lush gardens filled with tropical colour and screened from outside disturbance by a surrounding wall. The pool is about 1.2 metres deep along its entire 10 metre length and features both a jacuzzi and a bar, the latter with four stools within the pool itself.
Sun-loungers are available on the poolside terrace, along with a table and six chairs that allow for al-fresco dining whenever the mood suggests.
Opening the gateway between the two Banyan Villas doubles the amount of outside space available, allowing catering for larger groups. The enlarged outside area retains its discrete privacy, protected from outside disturbance by the surrounding garden walls.
In addition to the private facilities available within the sheltered grounds of Banyan Villas, our guests share access to the communal gardens and 15 metre beachfront pool
A half-minute garden stroll brings guests to the communal pool that faces directly onto the quiet surf of Bang Po beach.
