Brilliant villa, great part of Thailand, tricky location

Here is my review of Baan Napa July/Aug 2018, stayed for 5 nights with 2 families with 4 children aged 7 to 10. I’ll start with my review of Thong Nai Pan Yai and Thong Nai Pan Noi. This part of Ko Pha Ngan is beautiful if you want your perfect not over developed Thailand this is your place. Its beautiful and the beaches are gorgeous, there are loads of bars and restaurants without being too big. I felt like I’d travelled a long way to find the perfect Thai beach and it was worth it. We did 5 nights at a hotel on Yai and 5 nights at Noi at Baan Napa. Yai is the bigger beach and has the better bars and restaurant that are on the beach but Noi has better bars and restaurants behind the beach with more atmosphere. You can’t walk along the beach between the beaches but you can get boats and taxi for a small cost. Baan Napa is an amazing house, really good size and very well equipped, the view is amazing and the kids loved the pool table, table tennis and the tv room. We had some rain so it was perfect to have space for people to play games, watch a movie or read quietly. I have nothing negative to say about the house, it was spotless and well maintained. The rooms have lovely furniture and the place is quiet and peaceful. The staff were very discreet and looked after the house well. However previous comments and the information at the house gave the impression that the staff did more than just maintain the house. I think maybe the staff we had were different. I thought they would be able to cook or organise a chef or even pick up some shopping but when we tried to ask they either didn’t know what we were talking about or couldn’t help us. Given the location it would have been really good if they could of at least got us some large bottles of water rather than carrying them up the hill ourselves. Ian was really good and helped with transfers etc. The house was perfect however the problem was the hill!! The house is at the top of a very steep hill, the road is part dirt track and obviously at night is pitch black. There is a steep hill as soon as you leave the house which I'm sure would never be allowed in most countries. It takes about 20 minuets to walk down and bit longer to walk back up, its pretty hard work especially with 4 children in the heat. It is also a bit daunting walking up it at night, we had to use our phones to light the way. We did get some taxi's especially to take take some food and drink up. We tended to walk down and try and taxi back but you need to find a 4 wheel drive taxi that carries 8 willing to take you up which wasn't always possible. You can hire a car but that was quite expensive and you need to be brave enough to drive it up the hill. I don't know what happens in bad weather. On the whole if you are hiring a car and happy to drive you won't have a problem or if you don't mind walking up and down the hill it's great. I wouldn't recommend the house to people with small children as the walk would be too much and also the house isn't really child friendly. None of the rooms have internal corridors which means your children are sleeping is a room with an external door which was a bit strange. It would be fine for older children. I would definitely recomend Thong Nai Pan Noi but for me I would have rather stayed in a hotel resort at the bottom of the hill.

Gorgeous villa at Thong Nai Pai Noi

Second time at Baan Napa for us, and the same great feeling : perfect privilege. The location is just amazing. The villa is huge, and the elegant comfort above our expectation... in such a secluded area. Each day, we went to the best white sand beach of the island - Thong Nai Pai Noi : five minutes by 4X4 provided with the villa. Each day, we were waking up with the panoramic view on the sea. Each day game of pool, game of ping-pong, plunge in the infinity swimming pool... This villa is a gorgeous place to rest, play and share unforgettable moments in a dreamful landscape. Contact for reservation and pick up at pier with Ian was really efficient and cool.

Secluded paradise

It has been nearly 5 months since we visited Baan Napa, and as I type this we are sitting and reminiscing about the unforgettable stay we had at this hidden gem. Not quite sure how we have not posted this review already, as our stay there deserved a prompt review, so apologies that we have not written this sooner. 8 friends from around the world chose Baan Napa as a place to reconnect and celebrate two milestone 40th birthdays, and we could not have chosen a better place. When we look at our pics/memories, and realise the best night we had in Koh Phangan was at the Baan Napa villa itself, catering supplied by Coco (the villa host) and his wife Sue, you realise just how special it was. Thank you Coco and team for giving us a lifetime memory we will never forget. And we hope to return one day in the future x Highly recommended for anyone that wants a place that is private, personal and real. Til we meet again..... Tanya and Friends..... x x x x x x

Simply..wow

Our group of 5 stayed at Baan Napa for 5 nights and were blown away by the place. It's huge, beautiful and a perfect getaway from the crazy side of Koh Phagnan over at Haad Rin! The highlight of the place for us what that we had the luxury of being able to just stay home all day and relax without having to leave- the staff Coco and Sue were lovely and would prepare us breakfast, pick up food from town for us and open coconuts! When we did feel like leaving the Hilux was at the ready- an experience driver is needed for the bumpy yet fun road to the house. Ian was very helpful and when the fridge broke down replaced the fridge the same day we let him know. only downside was the lack of internet connection, it only worked it one spot- which was actually great since we could just tune out but not so great if you need to stay connected. Overall, Baan Napa was a great experience and I would love to wake up to that view again!

Relaxed!

the Villa is awesome. Locations/ scenery is awesome. The staff Koko & Sue are awesome & great cooks. one minor point is the road to the villa, or better yet the lack of a road, so a 4x4 is required. though if you love isolation/ privacy/ space, this is the villa.
